This week’s edition of the Cinefantastique Round Table Podcast – the Podcast of Horror, Fantasy, and Science Fiction Films – is a sad one, as Dan Persons, Lawrence French, and Steve Biodrowski mourn the passing of Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane Smith in DOCTOR WHO) and Michael Sarrazin (the monster in FRANKENSTEIN: THE TRUE STORY). Also on the table for discussion: THE CROW remake runs into a legal dispute; Kate Beckinsale may – or may not – take the Sharon Stone role in husband Len Wiseman’s remake of TOTAL RECALL; and Dan Persons provides a capsule comment on PAUL, the sci-fi geek comedy from Nick Peg and Simon Frost, which disappeared from theatres almost too fast for anyone to see it. Was the rapid departure justified, or is this an overlooked gem from the team behind SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ?
