Episode 103 - The Void Within

We felt it was time for some recent films, so we found a couple of doozies to talk about. We start off with 2017's The Evil Within, from the late Andrew Getty.  Knowing the backstory on the production of this magnum opus really gives you a different perspective when you watch this dark and twisted tale unfold. It has incredible, home-spun effects, a very powerful lead performance from Frederick Koehler and the legendary Michael Berryman as a very important part of the proceedings. Don't take this one lightly! We follow that up with The Void, from 2016, which owes a lot to the writing of H.P. Lovecraft.  What starts off as a strange, violent mystery, turns into a bit of a siege movie and then launches itself fully into a bizarre hellscape of truly nightmarish imagery. The filmmakers really went for it with this movie and the succeeded in almost every possible way.  Let us know what you thought of the show by writing to flickersfrom@yahoo.com or flickersfrom@gmail.com or just leave us a message on our Facebook page.
