This week’s show begins with birthday wishes for Page Branson and Dean Haglund, both of whom turn one year older this week! Then, the show makes the ol’ Chillpak pivot from celebrating birthdays to “Celebrity Deaths”! The fascinating lives and careers of two-time Oscar-winning Best Actress Olivia De Havilland and perennial television host Regis Philbin get discussed before Phil and Dean remember Phil’s friend of more than 20 years, John Saxon, who appeared in more than 200 movies and TV shows, including Phil’s 1998 film The Party Crashers. In the second half of the episode, your friends in podcasting pick up on a conversation from a couple weeks back about the all-time greatest Canadian films. Dean and Phil each share five Canadian movies that might not be worthy of that august list, but are certainly worth your time!
Halloween is only eight weeks away, so your friends in podcasting thought it was the perfect time to reveal their Top Ten All-Time Horror Films! Such classics as the 1956 Invasion of the Body Snatchers, its 1978 remake, John Carpenter’s The Thing, The Devil’s Backbone from director Guillermo Del Toro, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein and Cabin in the Woods all get discussed as “honorable mentions”. What films actually made Dean and Phil’s respective lists? Listen to find out! And keep those Netflix queues handy!
