#100: Vampire’s Kiss
Episode Description: This week, we are celebrating both our Month of Horrors Extravaganza and our 100th episode by treating ourselves with Nicolas Cage in his most deranged role – 1989’s Vampire’s Kiss, directed by Robert Bierman. The actor who has acted the most stars as a publishing executive who becomes convinced that he is turning into a vampire, resulting in whole lot of bug-eyed looks, random hip thrusts, and an accent that can most generously be described as unidentifiable and most accurately as fictional. And just when we thought things couldn’t get any better, the man puts in some plastic fangs. He’s a vampire! He’s a vampire! He’s a vampire! This could be a masterpiece.
Summer Blockbuster!?! is a podcast featuring InRO Editor-in-Chief Luke Gorham and Bradley University film professor Steve Warner. The duo look to tackle films each episode which received wide releases during the competitive summer movie season, but which had no sensible reason for such a rollout. And sometimes they cheat and don’t abide by this framework at all. A new episode will be posted each Friday from the beginning of May until the end of October, moving to a bi-weekly posting schedule after.
