Don’t Look Now with The Horror Show/A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child Writer Les Bohem

Jinx welcomes writer/producer Les Bohem to the show this week to discuss one of the very best genre films of the ‘70s. With such credits to his name as The Horror Show, A Nightmare on Elm Street 5, Daylight, Dante’s Peak, the alien abduction mini-series Taken and the CBS series Extant, Mr. Bohem has chosen Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 masterpiece Don’t Look Now for discussion.

With its excellent performances, unconventional editing, and its meditation on grief amidst its horror/thriller plot, Don’t Look Now inspires a lengthy talk on Roeg’s style, the film’s recurring motifs and their meanings, and the infamous love scene and the rumors surrounding its filming.

Brilliant guest, brilliant film, and a conversation which we hope you’ll enjoy!

    I was really underwhelmed with Don’t Look Now the first time I saw it, but I think it was due to the fact that I was only about 14 and half asleep. I didn’t re-watch it until years later with a friend who was shocked when I said “Meh” about it. Obviously on re-watching it I was blown away and found a new appreciation for the films use of misdirection and down beat ending. Film makers need to be braver about delivering depressing/harrowing endings to their films, I mean look at Night of the Living dead and the mist, fantastic films with awesomely depressing endings and Don’t Look Now is right up there with them.
