#35 | The Witches of Eastwick 2: Wizards of Wakefield

October 12, 2017
00:0000:00

In the first part of our special Halloween-themed trilogy, Harry and John revisit one of the most deliciously camp horror-comedies of the 80s - The Witches of Eastwick. 

Starring Jack Nicholson as Satan and Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfieffer as a coven of impeccably styled single mothers, George "Mad Max" Miller's adaptation of the acclaimed John Updike novel is the supernatural smash hit that's been keeping drag queens in fabulous costumes and witty one-liners for the past thirty years. 

Join us as discuss perm symmetry, sexual lounging, church freakouts and much more. Along the way, we also come up with some positively sinful drinking games, and of course pitch our own fantasy sequels to this iconic movie, including a gender swapped remake with a twist, and a sequel that ushers in a new generation of bad-ass witches. 

Each week on Beyond The Box Set, we watch a classic standalone movie and get together to pitch ridiculous sequel, prequel and remake ideas to bring them back to the big screen. Our podcast is available on all major platforms, including iTunes, Stitcher, aCast, Podbean, Google Play and more. Hit subscribe on your preferred app to get a new episode direct to your inbox every Friday morning.

#28 | Interview With The Vampire 2: Fangs For The Royalties

August 24, 2017
00:0000:00

Before the Twilight franchise ruined vampire movies for everybody, two of Hollywood’s most iconic leading men signed on to play a bloodsucking duo with a relationship so dripping with homoeroticism, producers briefly considered adding Cher to the cast to butch things up a little…

This week on Beyond The Box Set, John and Harry revisit the campy/scary delight that is Neil Jordan’s Interview With The Vampire. Join us as we discuss Tom Cruise’s magnificent scenery chewing, appreciate little Kirsten Dunst’s fierce post-mortem ringlet game and struggle to identify exactly what the plot of this movie is.

After waxing nostalgic for a while, we move on with our fantasy sequel pitches, including a Dark Universe crossover that stretches Harry’s celebrity impersonation skills to the limit, and an origin story that attempts to answer why celebrated vampire novels always seem to be written by bored housewives with no previous writing experience…

Each week on Beyond The Box Set, we take a classic standalone movie and compete to pitch the most ridiculous sequels, prequels and spin-offs to bring them back to the big screen. If you enjoy our Interview With The Vampire episode, hit subscribe for a regular dose of ludicrous fan fiction, and leave us a nice review so other listeners can find us as well. I mean, you don’t have to, but we’d really appreciate it if you did…

#24 | The Talented Mr Ripley 2: Tom Ripley’s Disco Years

July 27, 2017
00:0000:00

Everybody should have one talent. Ours is coming up with questionable sequel ideas for classic movies. This week it’s the turn of Anthony Minghella’s fiendishly gripping 1999 psycho-sexual thriller The Talented Mr Ripley, featuring Matt Damon as a murderous bisexual con artist, Jude Law in speedos and Philip Seymour Hoffman being the most Phillip Seymour Hoffman he can be…

This week on Beyond The Box Set, we flash back to this star-studded 1999 thriller and pitch our spin-off ideas, including a Tom Ripley origin story and a sequel that catches up with him in the Disco Seventies. Along the way we also discuss Cate Blanchett’s role as the ultimate gap year girl from hell and reminisce about the days before Gwyneth Paltrow forgot how to act…

#13 | Swiss Army Man

May 12, 2017
00:0000:00

Not many people actually saw this unexpectedly sweet gay necrophiliac love story, but we liked it so much we decided to come up with some sequel ideas. Obviously Daniel Radcliffe being in it means our ideas are mostly just Harry Potter jokes, but who among us wouldn’t want to see JK Rowling’s boy who lived reimagined as a flatulent corpse?

#8 | Heathers: Damage Control

April 7, 2017
00:0000:00

It’s the endlessly quotable cult comedy that turned Winona Ryder into an icon. But how would Heather’s pitch-black sensibility translate in 2017? From comic book crossovers to copycat killers, we explore the possibilities in another bewildering edition of Beyond The Box Set. Join us, it’ll be very…
