TGB Episode 145: The Devil in Cinema (Guest: STYD's Ryan Turek)
by Tim Buel
February 28, 2013
On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by Ryan Turek from ShockTillYouDrop and producer of The Night Stalkers to go through their latest picks of the week, the newest in DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for The Internship and Scenic Route and more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on the Devil in cinema, in honor of horror film The Last Exorcism: Part II hitting theaters. The guys talk over the convention of Satanism and the devil in film and how they're used in films past and present. They also discuss the most popular examples and if this trend will still be relevant.
The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records.

Hip-Hip-Hooray It's Golden Briefcase Day! Thanks TIm and Jeremy. // The Devil's appearance in DRAG ME TO HELL was hilariously amazing! // The Gollum episode of The X-Files kills me.

Cinema has done wonders for the fakery of the devil, allowing people to still believe in demons and possession and other stupidity. While a lot of people watch the films merely as entertainment, many actually believe them to be true. Listening to podcast noo. Here's a good documentary on the devil. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5mYFJ4irxM

Great show, guys! One weird Italian film that is quite different from others is Mario Bava's Lisa and the Devil, which is part devil-related part giallo. The acting is bad and the plot is ridiculous but that's what makes this a fun watch. And it has a crazy ending worthy of a Mario Bava film.

I don't have high standards for comedy. The whole premise is that you aren't supposed to take them seriously, it's for humor. I almost never see a comedy in theaters(The last one was Due Date) but I'll catch them at home, on DVD, or TV...and usually have a good time. But like I said, I don't hold comedy to any kind of high standard.

What about the show Reaper? I really liked that show and thought it was cancelled too soon! And LOST? There were a couple of characters that could have been the devil. Great show guys! Really enjoyed it, my first time listening.

You gotta be kidding! Devil is worth 4 or 5 watches but Holy Motors is going to be forgotten in a few years? Fanboy alert!
