Episode 146 of War Machine vs. War Horse: We Are Still Here (Hot Fuzz vs. The Town That Dreaded Sundown)


On this episode we look at films set in small towns with big secrets. The 2007 action comedy HOT FUZZ from writer and director Edgar Wright stars Simon Pegg as an annoyingly straight-laced cop exiled by his less professional London colleagues to a small English village with very little crime... that is, crime that the townspeople recognize as crime.

Our second film is a mixture of a remake and a sequel to a 1976 horror film, sharing the same name of THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN. In this new 2014 version, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon delivers a funny, scary, and stylistically cool slasher film about a masked serial killer stalking a small town in Texarkana, and the townspeople who dread reopening this decades long wound of prior murders.

But first, a smaller film that we have been looking forward to in this summer of disappointing big budget kids movies in WE ARE STILL HERE. The writer and director of that film Ted Geoghegan joined us to talk about his fun new horror film.
