Fanbase Feature: 40th Anniversary Retrospective on ‘Midnight Madness’ (1980)

As a special feature of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, the Fanbase Feature focuses on and celebrates a specific element of geek culture.

In this Fanbase Feature, the Fanbase Press staff and special guest Paul Pakler (co-host of the Paul and Corey Cross the Streams podcast) participate in a thorough retrospective discussion regarding Midnight Madness (1980) in light of the film's 40th anniversary, with topics including the film's clear (but likely unintended) commentary of social and political structures, its take on determinism, the future stardom of its cast, the many problematic elements throughout, and more. (Beware: SPOILERS for Midnight Madness abound in this panel discussion!)


Cast members
: Paul Pakler (co-host of the Paul and Corey Cross the Streams podcast), Barbra Dillon (Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief), and Bryant Dillon (Fanbase Press President, Writer - Identity Thief, Something Animal)
