Podcasters Of Horror Episode 15 – Fear Itself Episodes Family Man and In Sickness And In Health
Welcome to our Mini Podcast series from The Super Podcast with Podcasters Of Horror! This series began with a retrospective on Mick Garris’ Masters Of Horror series and continues on with looking at other horror anthology series and films, including Fear Itself and Goosebumps.
Your hosts ‘Super’ Marcey Papandrea and ‘The Terrible Australian’ Bede Jermyn are back as we continue our journey into the series Fear Itself, which only lasted one season and is considered to be the unofficial third season of Masters Of Horror. For episode 15 of the podcast and episode 2 of discussing Fear Itself we take a deep dive into episodes 3 and 4 of the show with Family Man and In Sickness And In Health.
Ronny Yu of Bride Of Chucky fame directed Family Man, it stars Colin Ferguson, Clifton Collins Jr, Josie Davis and Stephen Lobo. In Sickness And In Health was directed by Masters Of Horror alum John Landis, it stars Maggie Lawson, James Roday Rodriguez, Marshall Bell, Sonja Bennett and Christie Laing.
DISCLAIMER: The episode In Sickness And In Health was written by Victor Salva, who is best known in the horror community as the writer/director of the Jeepers Creepers films. Salva was convicted of sexual misconduct with a minor and served a short prison sentence. His past and the fact he still works within the industry is a big controversy and something Marcey feels strongly about and both Marcey and Bede do not support the man. For the sake of this podcast and using separation of art/artist we decided to still cover this episode (directed by John Landis who we have addressed in previous episodes) and discuss it for its own merits. If this episode may present any trauma for you the listener please be advised of the content before proceeding. If you or someone you know is suffering, please reach out to the best hotline that can offer support.
* Two back to back episodes involving serial killers.
* We both have a lot of love for Ronny Yu.
* Marcey believes Family Man could have been a strong episode for Masters Of Horror.
* Colin Ferguson and Clifton Collins Jr are excellent.
* Oh hey it’s the stars of TV’s Psych!
* In Sickness and in Health has a strong first half, part Lifetime film/part giallo.
* A bad ending can ruin a solid episode.
* Ratings for each film
* Plus much, much more!
