Really Awful Movies: Ep 357 – Paganini Horror

On this week’s episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast, not enough sax and violins together, but plenty of the latter, as we visit Italian horror and Paganini Horror.

The plot revolves around a failing female rock band, whose manager is beside herself about their inability to drum up, so to speak, a hit. Desperate, she solicits a strange piece of music, via the group’s producer called Le Streghe, aka, The Witches.

It’s a long lost piece by the eponymous and infamous in some circles, Italian composer and musician, Niccolo Paganini.

Paganini, like Robert Johnson much later, apparently sold his soul to the devil in order to totally shred on his instrument. Ah, the classic Faustian bargain horror. Join us. Grab your bow, rosin it up, and play along with.

Is this movie a Stradivarius, or is more of a cheap dime-store fiddle? You tell us!

Really Awful Movies: Ep 347 – Color Out of Space

On this episode of the podcast, Color Out of Space, an adaptation of the HP Lovecraft short story, The Colour Out of Space, from 1927.

This one stars Nicolas Cage, as well as Joely Richardson, and is a really stellar throwback to 1950s space-horror.

A family, who has just moved out of the big city (presumably, Boston) takes to Alpaca farming and remote work in the form of investment advising.

A meteorite hurtles to earth, and strange, untoward things begin to befall them. After all, it’s a Lovecraft adaptation!
