Merry Christmas! Do we have a present for you!
Welcome to another Lost Tapes episode! This one is far overdue, which only helps it earn the “Lost Tapes” title.
Welcome to another Lost Tapes!
Welcome to another Lost Tapes edition of The Film Room!
This time we gaze into a mouth-shaped deep, dark abyss; we watch David DeCoteau’s A Talking Cat!?! (punctuation not ours), a family film that features notable actor Eric Roberts as the titular talking cat(!?!). Did we mention it was shot on the same set as some (extremely) soft core porn? By the same director? Did we?
After tumbling down the no-budget no-effort film hole, we try to climb our way back out by thoroughly picking it, and the importance of base filmmaking, apart at the seams.
This is The Whimsical World of Mary Crawford!

Look how similar all these actors look. JUST LOOK! How confusing!
This picture doesn’t even fully convey the cheapness of the talking effect. See below for video!

Welcome, welcome to FUN! This is technically our Episode 0. About a month before we had the idea to start the cast, we partook in an experiment of sorts. We watched The Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure and saved the resulting chat, spurring a discussion which germinated into the podcast you know today. What is contained within is a dramatic re-reading of that insane chat, with movie audio accompaniment. We discuss why this monumental theatrical flop not only doesn’t work as a film, but as a piece of children’s entertainment. We had a lot of fun doing this, and hope you will too! These are the lost tapes!
