The leaves are falling, and pumpkins are burning, and the clown who lives under your bed is stirring. It’s time again to watch every horror movie you can! Since we have been doing this ‘Jaw for five years, we decided this year to reflect back on the last half decade of horror and present to you our Top 5 Scariest Scenes of the Last 5 Years.

johnLaflamboyRiotFest

As has become our Halloween tradition, we travel to the local (which just happens to be the best in the nation) haunted house and talk with Mr. John LaFlamboy, actor, filmmaker, horror aficionado and haunted house proprietor. John runs Statesville Haunted Prison and City of the Dead, not to mention Zombie Containment at Navy Pier, so he knows his stuff when it comes to scary. In addition to that John has two films under his belt Moleman of Belmont Avenue (available on Netflix) and soon to be released The Adventures of Kitty Zombie, so he knows movies as well. Could there be a better guest I ask you? NO!

Big thanks to John for hosting us as his wonderful attraction. hope you enjoy our Halloween Special!

Joining us is a damn nice lady, comedian, actor and all around performer Jen Bosworth. Fresh off her one-woman show entitled “Why Not Me. Love, Cancer and Jack White,” Jen talks to us about her experience acting here in Chicago as well as LA. She can sling a Nic Cage story with the best of them to boot. Safe to say we had a great time talking to Jen about Courtroom Movies and a bunch of other stuff.

CinemaWAR: Is Kevin Smith Still Relevant?
Sponsored by: Onscribe

He sat down at his keyboard, the half-eaten sandwich taunting him from his periphery. How do I write a post about writing a post, he thought. How is that done? He let his fingers stretch and began to type. He enjoyed the felling of knowing where the letters are in space as a subconscious muscle memory. He enjoyed not thinking about typing and letting the words flow out of his mind directly onto the screen. He began to write a post about writing a post about his podcast. The episode in particular that he was writing about that day, just happened to be about “Meta” Movies. Meta a term, especially in art, used to characterize something that is characteristically self-referential. This, of course, was entirely coincidental.

Ok, enough of that.

We also have a great guest this week, Director Param Gill who’s recent movie Last Supper is buzzing on the film festival circuit this fall having just won at the San Francisco Movie Fest. Param helps us get inside our own heads as he talks to us about his new movie, filmmaking, and  his experience working with Eddie Griffin and Penny Marshal! what a great guest!

In addition to all of that we have I for an I, cinemaWAR, reviews, news and all the greatness you have come to expect from a podcast about movies that are about podcasts about movies…. Think about it.

This week on CinemaJaw we take a long look at the long take. Some views are best left unbroken by a cut away. There is a tone and kinetic feeling that can be conveyed by a good filmmaker who knows when not to edit a scene. The rehearsals and the blocking, the camera movements and the technical challenges can make the long take a real achievement to pull off! There are some truly special Long Takes, and we hope we’ve picked you a good batch!

CinemaJawWcalebPike

Joining us is fellow podcastser of the DSLRVideoShooter show, Caleb Pike. Caleb  is a camera operator, editor, and podcaster based in Chicago, IL. His experience branches from documentary and commercial, to film and educational material. In 2010, Caleb started DSLR Video Shooter where he podcasts, writes reviews, and shares tools and techniques for filmmakers. What a perfect guest to discuss long takes with!

You’ll find all the usual goodies on a long episode on long takes.

Joining them is filmmaker Eugene Park, who’s most recent short Self-Deportation is about to make the rounds on the festival circuit. We are excited to talk to Eugene both about the Fall films, his film, and just film in general. I highly reccommend local JawHeads get out to see his film, as it is a cut above the rest.

This week on CinemaJaw we play ourselves in the movie of this podcast, or something like that, as we cover Top 5 Actors Who Play Themselves. Not including documentaries or simple banal cameos (otherwise Stan Lee would have for sure been at the top of Matt K’s list) we try to dig a little deeper and find the creative roles where actors play a version of themselves. It can get quite meta.

Joining us this week from your source for cinebriation, Alcohollywood podcast are Clint and Jared! These guys know many things, but no two things better than movies and cocktails. Needless to say, they are awesome!

So stop playing yourself and take a listen…

Vannin

This week on CinemaJaw we are following up with Nick Nummerdor and Andrew Morgan of Little Cabin Films who we last interviewed back in January of 2013. At that time they were just about to launch a Kickstarter for their documentary film Vannin’. Well guess what, the Kickstarter was a success and we have a finished film to review and discuss (and it did not disappoint)!

Vannin’ – A Documentary Trailer from Little Cabin Films on Vimeo.

In honor of the theme of Vannin, (which obviously is vans) we are exploring the greatest movie vehicles of all time, with the help of Nick and Andrew. Vehicles can mean a lot of things in Hollywood, as we will discover, and there is an amazing argument about just what counts as a vehicle on this episode!

In addition, we also take a moment to reflect on Robin Williams career, and we remember his best.

All of that plus our usual bits, Reviews, Interviews and Trivia. It’s a jam packed jaw.
