Ep412: Late Screening: The REAL King of the Monsters!

Today, The Kicking the Seat Podcast and Cole Rush of and The Quill to Live return with another installment of "Late Screening"! In the 40 years since Alien's release, Cole has somehow managed to avoid all the face-hugging, airlock-blowing excitement (yet he saw Prometheus;* go figure).

In this spoilerific, trivia-packed conversation, the guys talk about what makes Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror masterpiece so endearing and enduring, and why it succeeds where many of its imitators and sequels failed.

Also, Ian has controversial thoughts on a controversial issue, as portrayed in Saint Frances, which took home the Audience Award at this year's Chicago Critics Film Festial.
