The Guilty Pleasure Podcast - Blade Trinity (2004)
/

Welcome once again to our ongoing Guilty Pleasure’s bonus series! A series we begun as part of our friends Bloodhound Pix #HorrorNotFear campaign and was supposed to end last summer. But the show rolls on now that we have become a firm fixture at the Morbidly Beautiful network and we just have so much damn fun doing it. So, it will now roll on forever! (or however long people allow us to keep doing this!).

We ran a poll on social media platforms to see which film we would look at in our “Corny Comic Book Horror” edition. Would it be 2004’s “Blade Trinity” or 2007’s “Ghost Rider”? It was a pretty tight vote but in the end you went for the day-walker Blade in his silliest on-screen adventure.

Alongside NHE host Scott Murphy to dive into this one we have a couple of great former guests in the form of author Lex Jones (The Old One and The Sea) and director Michael Peterson (Knuckleball).

Over the course of the episode the three talk how this was the first (of a few) Deadpool dry runs for Ryan Reynolds, the (alleged) weirdness of Wesley Snipes on-set behaviour and their thoughts on the comic book movie oeuvre of David S. Goyer. Plus they get into the movie’s tonal inconsistencies, how this might be one of the weakest showings for Dracula and its troubled production history (beyond the Snipes stuff).

Elsewhere the trio get into 90s comics book’s, vampire mythology and early-mid 00s hyperactive editing.
