290: The Macabre of the House of Usher

Movie Meltdown - Episode 290
This episode we're coming to you "live" from the second annual "Meltdown Macabre", our own horror and Halloween celebration. We kick things off with some creepy cartoons and then we head into our Project: Poe feature - the 1928, French, silent version of "The Fall of the House of Usher". Then we sit down for our usual movie discussion, only this time we are joined by Bermudan, the band who provided us with a live performance of an original score to accompany the film. Plus we round out this year's Halloween episodes as we talk about some of our favorite movies to watch this time of year.
And while we go over the shuffling around of some of our favorite silent films, we also mention… Max Fleischer, studio tampering, senses are very overwhelming, Persona, really desolate face, burning alive, discerning the strobe effect, Ed Wood, all of our music is weirdo stuff, extreme areas of the screen, Salvador Dalí, Birth of a Nation, F.W. Murnau, I’m watching a horror
