On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we debate psychological horror vs gore, the art of the movie trailer, and then finish it off with our TV doctor Battle Royale!
First up, we debate which is scarier: psychological horror or gore? When you think of TV or movie scenes that terrify you, what stands out as the most horrifying? Is it a casual conversation by Hannibal to Clarice that raises the hair on the back of your neck, or is a flesh wound more jarring to you as an audience member? It’s a dissection of the mind and body this week.
Then we discuss the art of the movie trailer. All of us have preferences when it comes to movie trailers, but there’s no denying that when they are done right, they sell tickets and create the ultimate hype and intrigue. We discuss what makes them good, bad, and examples of our favorites.
Then we conclude as we are celebrate our fictional medical heroes by talking about our favorite TV doctors in one of our most beloved podcast segments: the Battle Royale. Joined by an actual physician, our guest Stan helps us break down which of our 8 finalists deserves to be crowned the greatest television doctor of all-time!
