132 - And Boy, Are We Off Topic - Week of 10/17/18

The Fellowship is pleased to present the next movie on our funny horror movie list, Young Frankenstein (1974). Even Mel Brooks thinks this is the greatest Mel Brooks film (or so we’ve heard), and Gene Wilder wrote one hell of a script. We all have opinions and trivia, and we add our usual flair, as well as our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
Still catching up on comics - Brothers Dracul, Real Science Adventures, Comic Book Implosion
A horror movie a day; Batman Damned (tangent of sorts on the “Bat-Wang” controversy); Bully Wars; Nightmare Before Christmas manga
Annual reread of Something Wicked This Way Comes; Scared Silly DVD collection (13 old comedy-horror movies, including Little Shop of Horrors, which sparks a brief tangent)
The new Doctor Who debuted; catching up on reading

Horror Movie Month! - this week we're loving Young Frankenstein, such a well written and well played movie with a clear reverence for the source material
[Note: Mel Brooks: Make a Noise (2013) was the documentary I was talking about. -m]
