Bird Box

Sandramania is running wild! This week, we're not just on lockdown, we've got to keep our eyes shut. Can we survive in a world where even opening our eyes means certain death? Probably not, but we'll sure as hell try.

Bird Box is a 2018 American post-apocalyptic horror film starring the legendary Sandra Bullock. In it, a mysterious force decimates the population and only one thing is certain -- if you see it, you die. The survivors must now avoid coming face to face with an entity that pushes it's prey to madness and suicide.... And you thought Covid-19 was bad?

Demolition Man

Another episode brought to you during the COVID-19 shutdown. Luke from Scapegoat Podcast is back, this time to talk about the 90s action classic Demolition Man. In the film, an evil crime lord and a risk-taking police officer are both cryogenically frozen and reanimated in 2032 to find mainstream society changed and all crime seemingly eliminated. A great example of the "False Utopia" trope found in works like Brave New World.

Since it hit headlines in early January 2020, novel coronavirus (also known as Wuhan conorovirus or COVID-19) has been reminding many of the 2011 film Contagion. In this episode, we look at the history of the various real coronavirus' such as SARS and MERS, how they work, and if the nightmare scenario depicted in the film is something we should be concerned about.

 

Contagion is a 2011 film directed by Stephen Soderberg. In the film, the death of Beth Emhoff and her son leads to the discovery of a deadly virus that quickly becomes a pandemic. As the US Centers for Disease Control struggles to curb its spread, a worldwide panic ensues. 

 

Keep in mind, we are neither a news podcast nor a science one, and a lot has happened since we recorded this episode last weekend. For accurate up-to-date information, visit the CDC's website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention-treatment.html

The Insect Apocalypse

Insects, which count for two-thirds of all terrestrial species, have been dying off at alarming rates. While some might welcome a world where we don't have to pack bug-spray for camping trips, this insect apocalypse will have disastrous implications on the ecosystem, food chain, and global economy. It may very well, even lead to our own.

Scream

It's Halloween season, and you know what that means... it's about time we take a trip to Woodsboro and see if we have what it takes to defeat GhostFace Killer once and for all (Not the Wu-Tang one... we already know how that'd end).

"Scream" is a 1996 horror film where Wes Craven re-invented and revitalized the slasher genre. This modern horror classic manages to be funny, clever and scary all at the same time... and more importantly, it also stars Skeet Ulrich.
