The Movie Matters podcast returns with a special themed episode focussing on the "video nasties" phenomenon. In the third instalment, co-hosts Lee Howard and Michael Mackenzie examine Jake West's new documentary Video Nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship & Videotape, and then take on the nasty to end all nasties, Meir Zarchi's controversial I Spit on Your Grave. We also discuss upcoming Blu-ray and DVD releases of interest, induct another title into the Blu-ray Hall of Fame, and ponder the question: "Do you get scared by horror movies?"

The music sampled in this episode is from What Have You Done to Solange? (Ennio Morricone), Videodrome (Howard Shore), Alien (Jerry Goldsmith) and Inferno (Keith Emerson), with clips from Video Nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship & Videotape and the theatrical trailer for I Spit on Your Grave. Special thanks to David Mackenzie for audio support.

Updated Tuesday, December 7, 2010 at 06:20 PM: A big thanks to Daniel Sardella for pointing out a major audio glitch at the end of the episode. A corrected version has now been uploaded, and I've now moved the alternate download source to Rapidshare, thanks to Megaupload's continued suckiness.
