Beyond The Box Set
Jennifer‘s Body

Jennifer‘s Body

November 17, 2021

A perfect storm of critical backlash aimed at Diablo Cody and Megan Fox saw Jennifer's Body consigned to a shallow grave on its release in 2009. Now considered a cult classic, was the movie a victim of poor marketing and good old fashioned misogyny? 

On this week's episode, we give our honest reactions to the movie, discuss some of our favourite moments and pitch some overdue sequel ideas...

Black Christmas 2: The Man With The Bag

Black Christmas 2: The Man With The Bag

November 30, 2020

'Tis the season to be... jolly? In the spirit of our complicated feeling about Yuletide 2020, we're kicking off this year's Festive mini-season in a slightly darker mood than usual. Enter cult seventies slasher Black Christmas...

Credited by some with essentially inspiring the teen slasher genre, thanks to its influence on the subsequent Halloween franchise and all that followed, Black Christmas is notable for a smarter script and higher quality performances than most horror fare - not to mention one of the most sinister endings ever committed to film. 

In this week's podcast we discuss the joy of Margot Kidder, Olivia Hussey's improbably plummy English accent, the iconic Sherry-swigging landlady and much more. As always, we also check in with our listeners, brainstorm some drinking games and pitch some seriously twisted sequel ideas!

-----

Each week on Beyond The Box Set, we revisit a classic standalone movie from cinema history, and attempt to pitch the silliest sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen. It's movie podcasting with a creative twist, and we're still going strong after almost 200 episodes...

What Lies Beneath

What Lies Beneath

October 26, 2020

Visual effects guru Robert Zemeckis was on a real hot streak in 2000. He filmed What Lies Beneath while waiting for Tom Hanks to lose enough weight to complete production on Cast Away. Both wound up as enormous blockbusters. 

In this week's episode, we conclude our Halloween ghost season with a look back at this silly, but refreshingly grown-up take on the haunted house horror trope. Tune in to hear our thoughts on Chekhov's artillery, curious dog logic, Harrison Ford in a rare but convincing villainous role and much more.

We also offer a forensic breakdown of the plot, brainstorm some drinking games, pitch some sequel ideas and check in with our listeners for their reaction. If you're a fan of the original, you won't want to miss this!

The Frighteners 2: Female Trouble

The Frighteners 2: Female Trouble

October 19, 2020

As our Halloween mini-season continues, we welcome back one of our favourite returning guests, the fabulous Phil Better. Having introduced us to the wonders of Wolf back in 2018, he returns this week to discuss Peter Jackson's cult 1996 horror comedy The Frighteners. 

A crucial stepping stone between Jackson's early video nasties and his blockbusting Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Frighteners is a witty, if slightly over-stuffed, horror comedy starring Michael J Fox as a psychic con-man who becomes embroiled in a very real spate of paranormal murders. 

In this week's episode, we break down the plot and discuss special effects, sassy ghosts, the scenery-chewing mom from E.T. and much more, plus drinking games, listener submissions, sequel pitches and much more...

Midsommar Murders

Midsommar Murders

September 28, 2020

Following the breakout success of Hereditary, writer-director Ari Aster proved he was no one-hit wonder with the deliciously weird Midsommar. By turns haunting and darkly hilarious, the film depicts possibly the most toxic breakup ever committed to screen, as Florence Pugh and Jack Raynor take an ill-fated trip to a remote Swedish commune where the sun never sets. 

Tune into this week's episode to hear our thoughts on villainous Swedes, mysterious bears, possible gay subtext and much more as we dive into this twisted modern classic. We've also got all of our usual features, including drinking games, listener submissions and our own fantasy sequel pitches.
