With Megan and Evan off this week, Dave is joined by ScreenRun's The Lady-Wan! On ScreenRun, Wan and her co-host Chris Scalzo tackle the films of a particular artist or franchise. This season, ScreenRun ran through (ha) the films of John Carpenter, so in that spirit, Wan and Dave take a deep dive into JOHN CARPENTER'S VAMPIRES (1:45), and it ain't pretty (but it is fun). Next, they get to a new release: Rebekah McKendry's horror film ELEVATOR GAME (17:43), in which a bunch of kinda dumb teens (starring Gino Anania, Megan Best, Alec Carlos, Nazariy Demkowicz) play a game that lands them in The Red World, or gets them torn to shreds by "The Fifth-Floor Woman," or both. It's a movie with an intriguing premise, ideas that don't go anywhere, and a whole lotta blood and guts. And in this week's Patreon exclusive audio, Dave and Wan talk about Michael Mann's 2004 thriller COLLATERAL, starring Tom Cruise's frosted hair and Jamie Foxx.
