Arthouse Legends Podcast

Welcome to Arthouse Legends Podcast - Where High Art and Geek Culture Collide! The goal of this podcast is to take a look at critically acclaimed and well-received films and consider if these films truly deserve their revered status in the cultural zeitguest. Using our combined film knowledge, geeky obsessions and general fart jokes, we take a bite out of much-beloved films, sometimes in love, other times in scorn, but never out-of-bounds.

Jan 11, 2017

January is once again on us and that only means one thing: Arthouse Legends looks at films panned by film critics and determine if they weren't given a fair chance. Special Guest Anthony from All Things Good and Nerdy joins us as we look at the 1980 surprise hit that would launch one of the largest horror franchises yet was so hated by critics that it caused several of them to literally dox the filmmakers and one of it's lead actors. But does Friday the 13th deserve such ridicule or has time vindicated this staple of horror (not taking into account the numerous sequels in its wake)? Join the MovieDude Eric, Kent and Anthony as they stretch out by the lake, take in some archery and possibly some Strip Monopoly (you might not want to be around for that).
