On the 3rd episode of the special episode series called Breaking It Apart, co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss the 1931 classic Frankenstein! This film and its creature have not only influenced hundreds of films, but pop culture in general. The hardest part of this episode was narrowing down all the movies we had to choose from! Puzzle pieces include Chappie, Edward Scissorhands, Alien, and Ex-Machina.
And for those keeping track of the Piecing It Together Podcast, just know that special series and episodes like this will continue to be a part of the future of the show, and we’ll continue figuring out the best way to brand them and tie them in to the overall puzzle theme as we continue doing them. While some special episodes will be a once in a while thing, Breaking It Apart will be a regular occurrence with its own numbering.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Frankenstein (and any other movies we discussed)!
Chad Clinton Freeman is the founder of the Pollygrind Film Festival and is currently helping plan the Ironton Wizardfest. He’s also the only person I know who sees more movies than me.
The song at the end of the episode is “Murder on my Mind” a horror (and Frankenstein) inspired track from my comedy-rap side project MC Randumb & Jewish Dave. It is available on the album Songs In The Key Of Murder on iTunes, Spotify and all major music services.
