Episode #216 – The Gallows

On this final SHOCKTOBER episode we discuss the noose-is-loose would-be chiller The Gallows. Meanwhile, Elliott somehow weasels his way out of doing a Muppet voice, Stuart reveals Dick Tracy’s bias against the disabled, and Dan somehow doesn’t let the movie’s plotting make his head explode.

    when i first saw the trailers to this i had a feeling it’d get flopped. glad to see it, but sad to see another shocktober come to an end

  2. Alex says:

    Wow, twist ending!

  3. Other Chris says:

    Oh Floppers, dear Floppers… That’s Forest Whitaker in the upcoming Star Wars flick, NOT Charles S. Dutton!

  4. M says:

    Around 1:19 you say Charles S Dutton is in the new Star Wars. I wonder if you mean Forrest Whitaker.

  5. Amanda Hamilton says:

    Dino-storm…I think I have the title for my junky eighties Saturday morning cartoon

  6. I’m not sure if your mouse husband reads the comments section Dan, but the movie I saw most recently that made me cry far too much far too often was “The Little Prince” recently released on Netflix. I don’t know why it did, but it certainly found the missing piece of armor covering my soft pink underbelly. Thanks for staying far too funny.

  7. Random Stranger says:

    Thousands of people can be dismembered in a film – men, women, children – and I feel nothing. But when an animal gets hurt…..

    I also once remember crying during The Waterboy – but for the life of me I can’t remember why. Must have been a difficult time in my life… or something. ‘You get’em Waterboy!’

    And for the record, The Gallows turns in at a slim 81mins. This podcast on The Gallows is a shade under two hours – and infinitely more entertaining.

  8. Elliott Kalan says:

    I blame Stuart for the Dutton/Whitaker mix-up. I never watched the full trailer but he’s seen it lots of times!

  9. Nibs says:

    I’m confused about the real bad guy in this movie: did you say a noose or anus?

  10. Caleb says:

    So I totally missed a goof ’em up early on and totally thought Vincent Gallo was in this for about ten minutes.
