The Movie Rat discusses The Funhouse on Forgotten Filmcast

I was invited back as a guest on the Forgotten Filmcast during this Halloween season. Yesterday, it went live. You can find it here. Todd and I discuss the 1981 film The Funhouse directed by Tobe Hooper. It’s an in depth discussion of that film, as usual Todd brings up some great points to consider about this weird little film. We also include our own personal film recommendations. The runners up for my own pick were the films of Zé do Caixão (a.k.a. Coffin Joe) and The Other, which has a great Blu-ray release from Screen Archives Entertainment. My choice was Rammbock, see why I recommend it so highly, and if you think a comparative allusion I make in talking about it is wrong, ben trovato or eerily accurate. So it’s worth checking out for that and for a deeper look into The Funhouse. For other episodes you can also search iTunes for “Forgotten Films.”

It’s a timely horror listen. Also, while I’ve not brandished many posts with 61 Days of Halloween, I am still covering horror here this season. Look:
