DVDActive.com writer Gabe Powers joins us to discuss Italian filmmaker Dario Argento.   We slice and dice into an in-depth discussion on the acclaimed cult classic SUSPIRIA as well as the his debut Giallo film THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE.  In addition, Gabe reviews Spanish arthouse horror film, IN A GLASS CAGE, Jim talks about the sci-fi horror cyberpunk insanity of HARDWARE, and Patrick recently rewatched and reevaluated HOSTEL 2.  We elaborate a bit more on a couple other Argento films as well and make plans to talk about another Italian horror master with Gabe for some time next year.  

The weekend after Thanksgiving, Andrew James of RowThree.com joins us to talk about a prolific and versatile filmmaker, Steven Soderbergh, a man who is known to put out two movies in one year!  Until next time, please send us your suggestions as well as any comments about Argento or any director we’ve discussed or will discuss on a future episode.  Drop us a line if you’re a movie blogger/podcaster and would like a guest spot on the show to talk about a filmmaker whose work you admire (or despise). Thanks for listening and be sure to check out our updated upcoming schedule in the sidebar to see which directors we’ll be talking about soon!
