Monster Men Ep. 108: Gene Wilder Tribute and “The Scream Effect”

0
 
This episode of Monster Men is dedicated to the legendary Gene Wilder, a comic genius and all-around beloved figure. When we heard the sad news of his passing, we had no choice but to sit down and reflect on his amazing career and all of the joy he brought us over the years. His filmography is amazing. He has been is some of the greatest and most popular movies of all time, including probably the greatest horror-comedy of all time, Young Frankenstein. Of course, he will truly live forever as Willie Wonka, a character that is both lovable and kind of terrifying at the same time. He and Mel Brooks also collaborated on another all-time classic, Blazing Saddles, but the list of hits does not stop there. Let’s not forget Silver Streak, The Producers, Stir Crazy, See No Evil, Hear No Evil and many more.

Then we move onto the main topic of the day… The Scream Effect. The movie Scream may have a large following and is credited for being a groundbreaking film, however we feel it paved the way for a whole generation of poor horror movies. You may agree with us, you may think we’re crazy. Either one is fine with us. We’re pretty sure you’ll get a few laughs. Check it out and let us know what you think.

It started with a simple premise: two buddies talking horror, as they would in a bar. Simple, spontaneous, sometimes spooky and often silly.

It’s the 100th episode of Monster Men! Help us celebrate five years of hanging out and talking horror. It’s been filled with great conversation and a ton of laughs, covering everything and anything including horror movies, ghost stories, toys, paranormal investigations, bobble-heads, author interviews, demons, UFOs, super heroes, book reviews, comic book recommendations, serial killers, conventions, Bigfoot, aliens, candy corn, Halloween celebrations, cryptids, urban legends, horrific wine and pumpkin ale.

It’s been a long strange trip and we are only getting started.

On this show we reflect on the journey so far and thank many of the people who have supported us and helped make Monster Men something special. We also discuss some of our favorite horror movies and finish up with the story about how Spider-man brought the Monster Men together.

Thanks for a wonderful 100 shows. Here’s to what’s next!
