Adam and Scott are back for a one-off episode discussing Joe Begos’ lo-fi Action Siege Film V.F.W.
Per IMDb the plot for V.F.W. is such; A group of war veterans must defend their local VFW post and an innocent teen against a deranged drug dealer and his relentless army of punk mutants.
V.F.W. is the perfect example of the term “elevated genre”. What does that exactly mean? Well, Adam and Scott venture into the world of lo-fi, low-budget action films to not only define it but discuss it in detail. Let them convince you that V.F.W. isn’t just a worthy entry into the Siege Film sub-genre but that you need to see this bad motor scooter of a film right now. Listen to Scott’s Fantastic Fest story about meeting the legendary cast of the film. Adam discusses Begos’ other recent film Bliss (micro-pod inside of a micro-pod, how meta of him). Also, they give a whole lot of films to watch if you love this film.
Bonus points to Adam who name drops Abel Ferrera’s The Driller Killer and The Addiction.
Double bonus points to Scott for telling a dirty joke!
The music at the beginning and end of the podcast is from the extremely talented Steve Moore’s score for VFW.
