What is Paths of Glory?

Paths of Glory; or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Shlock is a bi-weekly podcast hosted by Zack Long and Andrea “Danger” Gigeroff. Each episode, they talk about about two films: one “good” and one “bad,” that are related, however tentative that relation may be.

 

Andrea Gigeroff is a science student and movie enthusiast from Halifax, NS. She likes sci-fi novels, horror movies, snakes, and long romantic walks to the liqour store. In addition to Paths of Glory, she sporadically writes horror and science fiction film reviews on her personal blog, and is responsible for TombMates, a webcomic about witches and vampires trying to get by in this crazy world. Some of Andrea’s favourite films include, but are not limited to, Frankenstein (1931), La Strada (1954), Eyes Without a Face (1960), Bladerunner (1982), and The Road Warrior (1981).

Zack Long is the sole creator of The Light Is Fading, a filmmaker, an amateur film historian with a focus on horror, and cat owner. When he isn’t working on something film related, you can find him ‘enjoying’ an overabundance of caffeine, or playing roleplaying games with his friends. Some of Zack’s favourite films include: Drive (2011), Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (1970), The Evil Dead (1982), La Grande Bouffe (The Big Feast,1973), Der Siebente Kontinent (The Seventh Continent, 1989) and Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma (Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, 1975).

Episode 9: Bill Paxton Power Hour: Frailty (2001) and Near Dark (1987)

 

 

 

On February 25, 2017, the world lost an amazing actor.

Bill Paxton was synonymous with 1980s science fiction, having been killed by The Terminator, an Alien, and The Predator. Paths of Glory mourns his passing by looking at two of his finest works: Frailty, staring and directed by him, and Near Dark, featuring his most sadistic performance.
