DIMINISHING RETURNS: A comedy podcast about movie sequels, prequels, spin-offs and reboots. Hosted by Allen and Chris. WARNING: Contains Scottish accents and spoilers.
IN THIS EPISODE:
In between ‘proper’ episodes (where we delve into a particular film or franchise) we’ll be doing bonus episodes where we talk about wider trends in sequel culture, sequel news, new trailers and whatever the hell we like.
It’s almost Halloween so Chris and Allen get spooky and avoid discussing all the horrible news, coming from the fallout of the Weinstein scandal, focusing instead on fictional creepy! So there is talk of the status of the Maniac Cop reboot, Lone Wolf & the Cub details, upcoming Puppet Master sequels and news on an upcoming sequel to 1978’s I Spit On Your Grave. There is also a horror movie themed quiz.
Allen also show his deft touch with improv comedy and launches a competition while Chris worries about solo attendance at a Dr Who exhibition and tries to shut the competition down.
Insidious 4: The Last Key
Boo2: A Madea Halloween
COMING SOON ON DIMINISHING RETURNS:
We take a look at John McTeirnan’s Predator, on the eve of its 30th anniversary, and compare it to the Arnie-less follow up starring Danny Glover in Predator 2 (1990)
