The Invaders are coming to remake your movies and only we can defend the Earth from the dreaded film remake.

Dec 28, 2016

We here at the Invasion of the Remake Podcast wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Holiday season to everyone, as well as a full and joyous New Year. As is our tradition we're taking the week off to be with our families but don't want to leave you empty eared. This year we obliterate another Christmas classic in 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, which has been cleverly re-written with an Invader's twist by our very own Trish Cochlan and read by Jason, Sam and Trish. Enjoy. We'll be back next week, next year, with a brand new episode. Cheers!

The 99% becomes the 1% and the 1% becomes the 99% in a comedy classic about seeing how the other half lives. Trading Places (1983) stars Eddie Murphy, Dan Aykroyd, Ralph Bellamy, Don Ameche, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Paul Gleason and yes, fits our holiday theme criteria because we like to stay festive here on the Mothership. Join the Invasion of the Remake Podcast in discussing the financial themed comedy and remaking it in a strikingly similar, but very different modern world where the divide between the rich and the poor is greater than ever. Don't worry, we bring the funny too. Lots and lots of funny.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Joyous Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah, Fictitious Festivus, and a wonderful Life Day if you live on Kashyyyk.

When you make a Christmas film whose message is against the commercialization of Christmas, the one thing you shouldn't do is fill it with a bunch of gratuitous advertising. Also, if you are trying to right a ship that has gone very wrong with Superman III and Supergirl, you may not want to hire the same director as one of those flops for your next big budget idea. Sadly, that's exactly what Alexander and Ilya Salkind did with the big budget Santa Claus: The Movie (1985) starring Dudley Moore, John Lithgow, David Huddleston, and Burgess Meredith. Despite a whole lot of wrong, the film has since gone on to become a holiday favorite and cult classic. It's so bad, it's good.

But we think we can do it better. We rethink the plot, shave some things off, add a lot more, and recast it. We also tease what a David Cronenberg version of the film might look like. Leave it to the Invasion of the Remake podcast to turn a sweet holiday film into your worst nightmare. Hilarious!

'Tis the season to be stabby, fa la la la la la la la.

Killing sorority girls in there jammies, fa la la la la la la la.

Somebody put that tune in the next remake! This week we focus on Canadian horror classic Black Christmas (1974) directed by Bob Clark of Porky's fame and starring Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, John Saxon, Marian Waldman, and Andrea Martin. Does the 2006 remake by Glen Morgan stand up against it? The all-star cast in Michelle Trachtenberg, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Lacey Chabert, Katie Cassidy, Kristen Cloke and a returning Andrea Martin certainly give it all the reason to have great success. Or does it crash and burn in a flaming Christmas tree of death and destruction that claims the souls of all who see it? Maybe somewhere in between. Only one way to find out and that's by listening to this week's amazing Invasion of the Remake podcast!
