Episode Notes

Comedy does horror and horror does comedy. Two bizarre offshoots from unexpected directors. Peter Jackson, Robert Zemekis, and Marty McFly. Part Beetlejuice, part Drag Me to Hell. Jeffrey Combs of not just The Attic Expeditions. Long-haired Michael J Fox plays baseball. Psychics never really see it coming. What a real world with real paranormal would look like. The terror reaper. John Carpenter does a comedy with Memoirs of an Invisible Man. Handover the gimmick! The bubblegum. Stephen Tobolowsky chats with Sam Neil. Hiding the building and showing Chevy Chase. Once collective audiences have exhausted the vanishing exercise. The mind games you play as a child. Moving deeper into the theoretical. The heavy downsides of invisibility. Even food is depressing. Carpenter and the studios.
