The VCinema Show Episode 36: Corpse Mania

Are we feelin’ it?  Yes, indeed, we are necrophilin’ it!  Join our final episode in celebrating the month of horror as we check out one of the few films that dares do the deed with the dead, the obscure 1981 Shaw Brothers film Corpse Mania directed by Kuei Chih-hung (The Boxer’s Omen, The Killer Snakes).  Also, in this episode, we ask the question “What are your favorite Asian horror films?” to the listeners (look under the bump for a full list of films mentioned in this segment), Stan tells us about his meeting of two special people, as well as the U.S. premiere of Takashi Miike’s Harakiri remake.
