Ep#23 - Hoser Horror: My Bloody Valentine & Visiting Hours
This time on Notes from the Back Row, Carlo and Dan welcome Adam Eisentrout (of Kawaii Trash) to Hoser Horror so they can discuss two major slashers from the great white north. It’s the bloody-heart filled classic My Bloody Valentine (1981), and the oft-underrated Visiting Hours (1982). They dive into both movies, discussing their place in the pantheon of blood-soaked Canadian stab-’em-ups.

Ep#22 - Hoser Horror: Revenge in the Great White North
On the latest Hoser Horror episode of Notes from the Back Row, Carlo and Dan are seeing if Canadians really are as nice as they seem. They head backwoods for a very Canadian double-feature of revenge films. First, it’s Bullies (1986) from the director of Prom Night, Paul Lynch. Next, from the celebrated co-writer of Goin’ Down The Road (William Fruet) it’s the quintessential Canuxploitation classic Death Weekend (1976) aka The House By The Lake. Which one of these films was so despised upon release that the Canadian film community turned their back on the director? Why, you’ll just have to listen to find out, eh?A new episode of Notes From the Back Row will be released every other week.Subscribe today on iTunes, listen on Spotify, use our handy RSS feed in your favourite podcatcher, or keep visiting us right here at Back-Row.com.
Ep# 21 - Post Anime Club: Yasujiro Ozu
Listen, I’m not gonna lie to you: I spent years and years being absolutely addicted to manga and anime. In my teens it pretty much became my sole interest, broadening everything from my musical tastes to my drawing style. While I still have a deep nostalgia and appreciation for Japanese pop culture, I also have a deep dark secret: I ain’t know too much about them Japanese cinema. Sumimasen. It’s been a huge blind spot in my cinematic knowledge. The good news is it turns out I’m not alone–Carlo is right there with me in dunceville!In the newest segment of Notes From the Back Row, Carlo and I are looking to make up for years of ignoring Japanese cinema by focusing on some choice classics. First up are the charming and mesmerizing films of Yasujiro Ozu; a director whose career spanned almost four decades, but really only became globally celebrated after his death.The following films are mentioned: • Late Spring (1949) • Tokyo Story (1953) • Tokyo Twilight (1957) • Equinox Flower (1958) • Good Morning (1959) • Floating Weeds (1959) • An Autumn Afternoon (1962) Bonus (not Ozu): Abnormal Family [Hentai kazoku: Aniki no yomesan] (1984)A new episode of Notes From the Back Row will be released every other week.Subscribe today on iTunes, listen on Spotify, use our handy RSS feed in your favourite podcatcher, or keep visiting us right here at Back-Row.com.
