[Horror Queers Podcast] Zemeckis Does Hitchcock While We Worship Michelle Pfeiffer in ‘What Lies Beneath’

Blonde Bony Heads.

It’s hard to believe that July is already halfway over! We began the month by (rightfully) praising the unfairly maligned 1997 teen slasher film I Know What You Did Last Summer, and followed that up with a character study in Lucky McKee’s May. On this week’s episode, we’re traveling to a breezy lakeside in Vermont to check in with Michelle Pfeiffer and her totally not-a-murderer husband Harrison Ford in Robert ZemeckisWhat Lies Beneath, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary tomorrow!

In the film, recent empty-nester Claire Spencer (Pfeiffer) believes that her lakeside Vermont home is haunted by a ghost when she starts seeing a young woman’s image in their home. Her husband, university research scientist Norman (Ford), dismisses her terror as delusion, but as Claire moves closer to the truth it becomes clear that this apparition will not be dismissed. She soon learns that the ghost is from her husband’s past and might be trying to destroy her seemingly perfect marriage.

Episode 82 – What Lies Beneath (2000)

We’re traveling to a breezy lakeside in Vermont to check in with recent empty-nester Michelle Pfeiffer and her totally not-a-murderer husband Harrison Ford in Robert Zemeckis’ What Lies Beneath, which turns 20 this week!

Join us as we both marvel at Zemeckis’ fantastic (if overlong) homage to Hitchcock (Rear Window? Check. Vertigo? Check. Psycho? Check, check, check!), praise Pfeiffer’s mesmerizing performance and discuss how the film can be viewed differently in a post #MeToo world (there’s so much gaslighting in this film, y’all).

Plus, why doesn’t ghost Amber Valletta just tell Pfeiffer exactly what’s going on? Why does Diana Scarwid just disappear from the movie? And why does the subplot about spousal abuse come to absolutely nothing?


Cross out What Lies Beneath!

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re going to the Welsh countryside to visit a bunch of kooky queers in James Whales’ 1932 classic The Old Dark House!

P.S. Check out last month’s article on 2016’s queer(ish) slasher Pitchfork, and we’ll have a new article soon on 1977’s Alucarda. You can find all of the old articles here

P.P.S. If you subscribe to our Patreon you can listen to bonus episodes! Since new films are actually getting released again, we’re going back to our regular Patreon format (meaning: no more theme months!). We’ve got an audio commentary on I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, as well as bonus episodes on Dave Franco’s The Rental, Sundance favorite Relic and Shudder’s new release The Beach House.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
