Ep. 87 — ANIMAL HOUSE (1978)
On this week's show, our Psychotronic Summer series takes us back to 1978 to revisit a film that many consider one of the greatest comedies of all time, National Lampoon's ANIMAL HOUSE!
How does the film hold up on its 40th anniversary? Is it truly one of the all-time great cult comedies? Do some of its less enlightened points of view make it a difficult watch when viewed in 2018 eyes? We discuss all of this, plus go into detail on how the film came to evolve from its original concept (which was -- no joke -- a Charlie Manson in high school script), plus we'll ask the ultimate question: Does ANIMAL HOUSE belong in the Psychotronic Hall of Fame?
We'd love to hear your thoughts! Contact us at any of the social media accounts listed below, or be a part of the show by calling us at (864) 371-9931 and leaving us a voicemail of 3 minutes or less and we'll use it on our next episode!
