The Scream Squad: Vampire Roulette (PODCAST)
On this week’s episode of The Scream Squad, we close our January with a bite, diving into three films that explore characters who believe they are vampires. First up, Nicolas Cage’s whacked out performance in Vampire’s Kiss dives into mental illness, yuppie culture and male entitlement. Then, George Romero’s personal favorite, Martin, explores isolation and the decline of American Industry with a strange boy who believe he is a vampire in a dying Pittsburgh. Finally, a cult classic, Let’s Scare Jessica to Death, which takes a look at vampires and mental illness from a female perspective. Plus, if given the chance, would Jamie and Chico become immortal? Listen and find out!
