SMC Pod #138: SPELLBOUND + Romantic Thrillers!

Secret Movie Club Podcast

Feb 17 2023 • 39 mins

The Secret Movie Club Team (Connor Lloyd Crews, Edwin Gomez, Daniel Ott, and Craig Hammill) cozies up to Alfred Hitchcock’s 1945 Spellbound, starring Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck with a famous and startling dream sequence by Salvador Dalí! Hitchcock, our director of 2023, is a progenitor of the romantic thriller, so the Team also looks at other romthrills. Connor analyzes their split lineage that leads to both erotic thrillers but modern action movies as well. Craig nominates Pedro Almodóvar as his favorite descendent of Hitch, while Daniel goes with Park Chan-wook. Edwin needs his romantic thrillers done right, by which he means 1991’s Shattered and NOTHING ELSE.
