Special thanks to Stephen Moore, whose original commission of Home Alone we thoughtlessly trampled upon during our holiday revelries. For his make-good podcast, he has selected the classic 1973 horror film, The Exorcist. Directed by William Friedkin and starring Ellen Burstyn, Linda Blair, Max von Sydow, and Jason Miller, it tells the harrowing tale of a mother who turns to Catholic priests as her last hope when her daughter gets possessed by an ancient evil spirit. I’ve got to be honest, I was skeptical that the film would hold up, but does it ever. Not only does it still manage to be genuinely disturbing, but it elevates the form of the horror flick into a generally excellent film in terms of art.
Thanks again Stephen, we’re sorry we stole your Home Alone thunder, but on the other hand, you got the exceedingly rare “two for the price of one” Commissioned Podcast. As mentioned on the pod, we know that interest in commissioning a podcast is very high, but we’re still months behind in our queue. It will remain closed to new commissions for the time being.
