François Truffaut once said that "Film lovers are sick people." He may have been on to something.

Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 75 - The Alternate 100 Part 9
2014 is drawing to a close and so is the Shot/Reverse Shot Alternate 100. For the penultimate installment, we talk about a couple of classic horror movies, films that triumphed over incredibly low budgets, and the angriest footsteps in cinema history. I also make a comparison between the 1962 film Carnival of Souls and the music of Daniel Johnston, which is great if you fall in the centre of a very specific Venn diagram.
Note: On several occasions in this episode I mix up The Sweet Smell of Success and The Secret of My Success. I blame this on being tired and the fact that those two titles are sort of similar.
