Posted in Dead Air Podcast, Updates with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 18, 2019 by splatterpictures

Don’t look now but the chairlift has ceased for the foreseeable future. Nothing to do but put on your headphone and listen to the 145th episode of Dead Air! Oh, and do mind the wolves nipping at your toes. You wouldn’t want to end up a frozen dinner!

Today we talk about the 2010 film: Frozen! Three friends are having the time of their lives on a weekend ski trip, when one last late night trip down the hill turns horribly wrong. The chairlift is at a dead stop. They’re the last ones on the hill and the resort employees have gone home, not to be back until the following weekend.

Temperatures drop dramatically as a violent storm sets in and our three friends have a horrible decision to make. Freeze, climb, or jump. What’s worst is they’ve attracted the attention of a pack of hungry wolves. Can they survive a week or will they succumb to the elements? How desperate can three people become when death is the only certainty?

Mayday Mayday! this is US Station 31. We’ve found something in the ice.

It’s Episode 142 of DEAD AIR!

Today we take a look at John Carpenters undisputed masterpiece; 1982’s The Thing!

A distant outpost in Antarctica is invaded by a sinister alien creature with the ability to merge and copy the physiology of any living thing it touches. With the men at each others throats trying to determine who is even human it becomes an all out war for survival. Worst still is the thought that if this unknowable “Thing” reaches populated areas, the human race would be doomed in no time at all. Can they stop it before there is no one left on the base alive and human? Or is it better for them all to die to save humanity.

One of the greatest science fiction horror films ever made. The single best remake ever produced and what many consider to be John Carpenter’s strongest film that includes jaw-dropping special effects by Rob Bottin. The film was at one time considered a box-office bomb and critical failure that nearly ended Carpenter’s career. We discuss how times and perceptions have changed for this masterful achievement in horror, mystery and suspense.
