Episode 126 – The Brothers Grimm Halloween Special

Spread the love

What would possibly make Halloween of 2021 more GRIM than a special episode all about the Brothers Grimm? Nothing! That’s why I did it! This is what you’ll get in this episode: A brand new Celluloid Catacombs with Carolyn Mauricette, this time she’s talking all about the 2005 confusion fest of a film starring Matt Damon and Heath Ledger. This edition of The Celluloid Catacombs is brought to you by Wicked Cat Clothing, the world’s finest horror, halloween and paranoral themed clothiers. Next, we’ll take a brief look at the history of the Brothers Grimm, then the stories. Oh, the stories. We’re going to talk about a few of the Grimm stories, with commentary by the author of the Webworld Trilogy and San Diego-based filmmaker, Ben Johnson. Ben’s going to tell the basic stories, as he remembers them and I’ll come in and fill in the GORY details. Finally, I’ll read the full gloriously ghoulish tale “The Robber Bridegroom”. Body parts, wicked murderers and talking birds. Perfect for Halloween! Music of the episode by Murder By Death with their rendition of the Sam The Sham and The Pharaohs classic “Little Red Riding Hood”, plus Austrailian punk rockers Bodyjar with the song “Fairytales”.
