FS #233: Zack and Miri Make a Porno / Changeling / Top 5 Scariest Scenes
Friday, 31 October 2008 01:00
Oct. 31: Halloween always reminds me about the tragic story of Filmspotting: Adam and Matty were just two healthy, happy-go-lucky kids backpacking through the mountains of Chicago when they stumbled upon an abandoned radio studio. It's been more than a year since that fateful day when they first turned on that cursed microphone... and they haven't been seen since! But it's said, if you listen closely, every Friday, their voices can still be heard giving out ghoulish movie reviews and singing the praises of director Kevin Smith's "Zack & Miri Make a Porno," and the performances of stars Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks and Craig Robinson.

The legend also goes that if you say AdamandMatty three times into your iPod, you're immediately haunted by a review of Clint Eastwood's latest period drama "Changeling" starring Angelina Jolie (and the ghost of Billy Bob Thornton's career). But, most importantly children, if you ever see Adam and Matty floating outside your window, you must promise me NOT to let them in, as they will regale you with their terrifying Top 5 Scariest Scenes until you bleed from your ears! Happy Halloween!

Also on the show: Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre and music by Fever Marlene.

NOTES/CORRECTIONS
- Point of fact: It's actually been 10 years since I was in film school in Chicago, not 6. Yikes.

- Michelle from Chicago... actually, I'm not sure we did meet her at the Filmspotting Chicago Meetup.

- Geraldine Page is great in Woody Allen's "Interiors." And probably never been described as creepy. She has, however, been dead since 1987, so she is not in "The Orphanage." That would be Geraldine Chaplin.
