Black Lagoon show #3: Re-Made in Italy


In our third podcast, we take a look at three Italian films that were “inspired” by hugely successful Hollywood horror movies – Contamination (Luigi Cozzi’s fun take on Alien), The Last Shark (Enzo G Castellari’s Jaws clone) and Beyond The Door (Ovidio G Assonitis’s response to The Exorcist). All three directors take very different approaches to cashing in on genre blockbusters, and we’ll be discussing where they succeed and where they fail.

We’ve had some lovely feedback about the first couple of shows – please keep it coming, and if you have any suggestions for a group of films you’d like to hear us discuss in an upcoming podcast, let us know!
