The Net 2: The Trial of Mozart’s Ghost

June 13, 2021

Back in the 1990s, the world had a vague idea of how the internet might look - and that image inspired a range of movies! First up - the Net, a classic Sandra Bullock thriller with a very loose grip on reality!

From chat room politics to the mechanics of 90s viruses, we break it all down in this week's very special episode!

A slightly lesser-known pick than usual this week, but as soon as we saw this bananas high-altitude thriller starring Chloë Grace Moretz, we knew we just had to talk about it!

Reindeer Games 2: Away In a Manger

Reindeer Games 2: Away In a Manger

December 7, 2020

Our alternative festive season continues this week with Reindeer Games, a bizarre attempt to put a festive twist on a Tarantino-style crime thriller. 

Released in February 2000 to terrible reviews and negligible box office, the film stars Ben Affleck as Rudi, an ex-con who poses as his deceased former cellmate in order to win the heart of a lonely woman played by Charlize Theron. However, he quickly regrets his deception when he's dragged into a complex criminal plot to stage a heist at a local casino. 

In this week's episode, we discuss overly complex plot mechanics, bizarrely shoehorned-in Christmas references, disturbing kissing technique and much more. As always, we also throw in some drinking games, catch up with our listeners and pitch some improbable sequel ideas!

Black Christmas 2: The Man With The Bag

Black Christmas 2: The Man With The Bag

November 30, 2020

'Tis the season to be... jolly? In the spirit of our complicated feeling about Yuletide 2020, we're kicking off this year's Festive mini-season in a slightly darker mood than usual. Enter cult seventies slasher Black Christmas...

Credited by some with essentially inspiring the teen slasher genre, thanks to its influence on the subsequent Halloween franchise and all that followed, Black Christmas is notable for a smarter script and higher quality performances than most horror fare - not to mention one of the most sinister endings ever committed to film. 

In this week's podcast we discuss the joy of Margot Kidder, Olivia Hussey's improbably plummy English accent, the iconic Sherry-swigging landlady and much more. As always, we also check in with our listeners, brainstorm some drinking games and pitch some seriously twisted sequel ideas!

Each week on Beyond The Box Set, we revisit a classic standalone movie from cinema history, and attempt to pitch the silliest sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen.

What Lies Beneath

What Lies Beneath

October 26, 2020

Visual effects guru Robert Zemeckis was on a real hot streak in 2000. He filmed What Lies Beneath while waiting for Tom Hanks to lose enough weight to complete production on Cast Away. Both wound up as enormous blockbusters. 

In this week's episode, we conclude our Halloween ghost season with a look back at this silly, but refreshingly grown-up take on the haunted house horror trope. Tune in to hear our thoughts on Chekhov's artillery, curious dog logic, Harrison Ford in a rare but convincing villainous role and much more.

We also offer a forensic breakdown of the plot, brainstorm some drinking games, pitch some sequel ideas and check in with our listeners for their reaction. If you're a fan of the original, you won't want to miss this!

The Frighteners 2: Female Trouble

The Frighteners 2: Female Trouble

October 19, 2020

As our Halloween mini-season continues, we welcome back one of our favourite returning guests, the fabulous Phil Better. Having introduced us to the wonders of Wolf back in 2018, he returns this week to discuss Peter Jackson's cult 1996 horror comedy The Frighteners. 

A crucial stepping stone between Jackson's early video nasties and his blockbusting Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Frighteners is a witty, if slightly over-stuffed, horror comedy starring Michael J Fox as a psychic con-man who becomes embroiled in a very real spate of paranormal murders. 

In this week's episode, we break down the plot and discuss special effects, sassy ghosts, the scenery-chewing mom from E.T. and much more, plus drinking games, listener submissions, sequel pitches and much more...

Insomnia 2: I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead

Insomnia 2: I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead

September 21, 2020

Released between the indie-breakout success of Memento and global blockbuster Batman Begins, Insomnia could be considered the forgotten Christopher Nolan movie. 

The only film that the infamously oblique director didn't write himself, the movie is a remake of a gritty Norwegian crime thriller. While it doesn't quite reach the head-scratching heights of the director's later work, it still boasts many classic Nolan signifiers, in addition to a brace of strong performances from Oscar winners Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hilary Swank.

Tune into this week's episode to hear our thoughts on anti-typecasting, un-mourned murder victims, driftwood parkour and much more as we break down the plot and pitch some sequel ideas - with the help of special guest star Ross Burton!
