We have a new word for the type of films we're discussing in this series, Retraux! A combination of Retro, and Faux, it perfectly describes this week's film, Black Dynamite. An homage to the Blaxploitation era starring Michael Jai White, Black Dynamite is a former CIA agent/Vietnam vet who must clean up the streets and avenge his brother's death. A tight comedy that embraces all the tropes, and flaws, of the genre Black Dynamite is an under appreciated film that deserves a wider audience. We'll touch on the film, the history of Blaxploitation, and more in this episode. Don't forget to follow us on Twitter, and leave us a review. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/celluloidfeverdreams/support

If you're having trouble finding love, why not try witchcraft? What could possibly go wrong? In this week's film, our main character Elaine uses witchcraft to try and find true love, leaving a trail of broken marriages and dead bodies across a small California town. This is the second of our Pastiche films for April, a horror/tragedy/comedy that is a beautiful recreation of the Technicolor films of the late 60s. Drawing inspiration from Hitchcock's The Birds, Hammer's Dracula Prince of Darkness, and Romero's Season of the Witch, this film takes the style, and tropes of these films to tell a modern story of love, witchcraft, and murder. Join host Wyndham Jennings for another talk about film you haven't heard of, because who knows, it might wind up being your new favorite. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/celluloidfeverdreams/support
