Episode 84 - Freaky 2015

A Flickers podcast that doesn't look at films from the 70s or 80s!?!?! What has the world come to!?!?
We wanted to update things a bit this time, so we are looking at two from 2015, starting with The Invitation, which is very much like if Werner Herzog directed a claustrophobic remake of the Big Chill. Filled with great performances and a great ( and surprising ) story, this was a real treat. We follow that up with The Witch, and we both felt that it did, in fact, live up to all the hype that surrounded its release.  It tells what feels like a very authentic tale of an family that is disintegrating while something possibly supernatural taunts them from nearby shadows. We follow these two up with a discussion of other recent horror greats, but eventually the nurses come to give us our medicine and put us to bed before we get too excited.  Let us know what you've seen from the last couple of years that impressed you by writing to flickersfrom@yahoo.com or flickersfrom@gmail.com or leave us a message on our Facebook page.
