This week, we're starting a dive into the films of Alfred Hitchcock! Our first film in the series is an all-time classic: Psycho.

The movie features some amazing performances from Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh. Though, they had some really terrific roles to work with given the script. I confess, I only saw this movie all the through for the first time a year or two ago at our Alamo Drafthouse. It's funny, these movies baked into the zeitgeist, sometimes it feels like we've seen them when we haven't. I'm really looking forward to sharing these movies with Claire, and I anticipate a couple of first time watches for myself. 

Join us! Fill in some of your cinematic gaps as we venture into what we've dubbed #OperationMasterOfSuspense. This operation name is extremely on the nose. I know.

Last week, we concluded #OperationUniversalHorror with Creature From The Black Lagoon. We were so sad to see it go we just had to add Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water to the line-up. Claire had mentioned she wanted something with more dancing and kissing and, well. This creature feature had it all!

...Including a really disturbing sex scene that I had totally forgotten about! We start out our chat with that scene, consent, and bodily autonomy. We explore similar themes to the classic Universal horror monster films with a discussion about Othering and what it means to exclude people with arbitrary definitions of "Normal." Claire also digs into Damsels In Distress and how Eliza (Sally Hawkins) is an awesome hero in this film!

Welcome to 2020! We're excited about the new year and all the amazing films to come. This week, we conclude #OperationUniversalHorror with Creature From The Black Lagoon. We're sad to see this chapter go, but we had a blast going through these movies. Plus, we're ending on a high note because this movie is gorgeous and awesome.

Shout out to Mallory O'Meara and her amazing book "The Lady From The Black Lagoon" about Milicent Patrick, the actual designer of Gill-Man. Our ITMODCast ChatCast episode from the Chattanooga Film Festival is what inspired this deep dive. Claire saw her book and insisted I get her a copy of her own. You should buy the book!

 This week, #OperationUniversalHorror returns! Finally! We're (mostly) over the zombie virus and it's time to get back to those classic monsters. We're talking George Waggner's The Wolf Man, starring the magnificent Lon Chaney Jr. as Larry Talbot, who's kind of a creep! Telescopic spying as a pick-up line is super not cool. We get into consent and agency. We also talk a bit about the history of the Romani people, especially during the Holocaust. Bela Lugosi is phenomenal as the fortune teller, though. I tell you what.

We interrupt our regularly scheduled #OperationUniversalHorror (don't worry, it'll be back in a sequel) because Bill & Claire caught a touch of the zombie virus! No worries though, this is a strictly audio medium. While we can't record this week, we thought we'd give you a chance to listen to Claire's debut on the In The Mouth of Dorkness ChatCast!

On this extra spooky special episode of the ITMODChatCast, we're bringing you an incredibly nifty chat from the Alamo Drafthouse in Winchester, Virginia. We caught André Gower and Henry Darrow McComas towards the tail end of their epic #DocTillYouDrop tour in which they traveled the country screening their documentary "Wolfman's Got Nards." We here at ITMOD became instant fans of the film after we caught its premiere at the Chatanooga Film Festival back in 2018, and we're thrilled to witness new audiences discover its uproarious celebration of fandom. Not just a making-of doc about "The Monster Squad," André and Henry's film partakes in a much larger conversation surrounding artistic passion and the fervor it stirs in the human soul.

Follow Andre Gower and Henry McComas on Twitter at @andregower and @hdilla. You can follow the film @thesquaddoc. Go support this movie when it drops!
