HORROR BUSINESS Episode 52: FULL ECLIPSE & PROJECT: METALBEAST

Greetings, and welcome back to Horror Business. We have one awesome episode in store for you guys. On this episode we’re discussing 1993’s Full Eclipse and 1995’s Project Metalbeast.

First and foremost we want to give a shoutout to our sponsors over at Lehigh Valley Apparel Creations, the premiere screen-printing company of the Lehigh Valley. Chris Reject and his merry band of miscreants are ready to work with you to bring to life your vision of a t-shirt for your business, band, project, or whatever else it is you need represented by a shirt, sweater, pin, or coozy. Head on over to www.xlvacx.com to check them out. Also, thank you to our Patreon subscribers. Your support means the world to us and we are eternally grateful for that support. Thanks!

We start by talking about what we’ve seen or done lately in the field of horror. Liam begins by talking about seeing Land Of Mine. Justin talks about watching Under The Silver Lake and Disobedience, two non-horror films.

First up is 1993’s Full Eclipse. We begin by giving a brief outline of the film. We talk about the movie is a weird combination of ‘90s comic book movies and ‘90s cop movies.

The stereotypical nature of the film in that it has all the tropes of 90s action films is discussed, as is some of the tropes the movie leans in on frequently. The various plotholes of the movie are picked apart, as is the design of the werewolves, and Liam describes his concept of werewolf films living and dying on the design of the werewolf.

Our final summation is that the movie could be a lot of fun if the creators of the film had a bigger budget and had leaned further into the more comic book elements of the film.

Up next is 1995’s Project: Metalbeast. We begin by giving a rough outline of the film and picking apart some of the ridiculous part of it.

We discuss the sub par werewolf design, the bizarre and insane nature of the plot, and how nothing in the movie really makes any sense.

Greetings and salutations. My name is Justin Lore, and in addition to being a real life pawn star, an obsessive dog dad, and a falsely accused Lovecraft apologist, I am the creator and co-host of the podcast Horror Business and the communications manager and assistant editor of Cinepunx. I saw Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’ at the age of six and horror films have been a large part of my life since then. Favorite directors include John Carpenter, George Romero, David Lynch, James Cameron, Wes Anderson, and David Cronenberg. I don’t eat animals, I abstain from the partaking of drugs and alcohol, I think ‘Friday The 13th’ is the most overrated franchise in film history and if I ever saw Metallica live and they played ‘Blackened’ there’s a decent chance I’d be led out in handcuffs because the pit would get murdered.
