titles of the new S&M episodes

posted by bai_ganyo on - last edited - Viewed by 265 users

The titles of the season 2 episodes were allready hinting at movie titles. While they stretched from comedies What's New Pussycat, dramaesque movies Mo' Better Blues to horror movies Night of the Living Dead, the titles of season 3 seem to be aimed at movie titles as well. In the site for "The Devil's Playhouse" we see a cinema with posters. This time though it seems they are exclusively pulp movies. The trailer also seems pretty pulp.I know They Stole Hitler's Brain and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.
Does anybody know some of the other movies, the titles aim at?

  • I only got Night of the Living Dead and Chariots of the Gods. Are the other three really well known in America or something?

  • I only knew What's New Pussycat and Night of the Living Dead, but in French. The first one is a common enough phrase that I didn't make a connection with the movie title, and the second I would have translated into "The night of the undead" so it didn't tilt in.

    Depends on how old you are. :)

    Get off my lawn!

  • (And Chariots of the Gods? is more famous as a book, but there was a movie made of it, so it fit the rules).

  • Sorry, I don't know that one.

    After a check, it's called "Présence des Extra-terrestres" in French (Presence of Aliens) but I didn't know it in French either.
    Seems pretty accurate though considering the French title (I'm assuming it's about aliens). Good job on that one (and night on the raving dead, too).

    EDIT: Since we're confessing things, I have absolutely no idea what that "Twilight Zone" everyone keeps talking about is.

  • The one I got inmediatly was Night of the Living Dead, mostly because "Muerto Viviente (Living Dead)" was our way to tell zombie before we knew the word zombie.

  • Well, living dead is how we say undead in French. But I'm so used to translating it "undead" that I didn't think it could be said "living dead" too.
    Also, I wasn't thinking about movies so anything short of obvious (to me) was going to be missed.
    I realised there were references to horror movies, just didn't realise the name of the episode was just two letters away from the title of a movie.

    An American anthology show from the early 60s. The stories all had science fiction-y premises, and many had a twist ending. It was so popular that it entered American pop culture and has been parodied or homaged approximately 482304 times.

    The most well known story, which was called Time Enough At Last, was about an man who liked to read but never had the time. After becoming the last survivor of a nuclear holocaust, he had plenty of time to read without being disturbed, until his glasses fell off.

    My favourite is the one where the Earth was spiralling into the sun, but in the end it turns out to be the main character's nightmare; the Earth is really moving away from the sun. I probably liked it because I like apocalypses and I was currently in the middle of a heatwave.

    I've seen that parodied in lot of American stuff, but never knew where it came from. I kind of assumed it was a short story of some sort (probably because short stories tend to have these kinds of twists). But now I know.
    Thanks!

  • I realised it for Night of The ravin' dead but not for the rest since I normally don't hear the english titles for movies. I did know the song "What's new Pussycat" by Tom Jones which seems to be on the soundtrack for the movie.
