Episode 070: Annihilation and Under the Skin

Strange SF is back!

Science fiction filmmaking was briefly set free of its genre constraints following Kubrick's 2001 - and in the early 1970s, flying saucers and rubber monsters were left behind in favor of experimental stories like David Bowie's The Man Who Fell to Earth and Saul Bass' weirdo ant-apocalypse, Phase IV. Sadly, it all came to a halt on May 25th, 1977 when Star Wars arrived to lock us into 35 years of Lucas-copycats - but recently things are starting to get strange again - join MG as we take a look at this new trend with Under the Skin and Annihilation!
