There Can Be Only One – The Podcast 21: “Hush”

[Explicit language]


TCBOO-Podcast-logoTwo movies titled Hush enter, only one will leave (with its title) as Herman Davis and Robert Rau watch Jessica Lange try to steal Gwyneth Paltrow’s baby and a Netflix exclusive horror movie to determine which one should be called Hush.

First up is a 1998 thriller that soooo wanted to be The Hand That Rocks The Cradle, but with a PG-13 edge. Jessica Lange is a controlling mother and really wants a grandchild, but is settling for Gwyneth Paltrow and all her helicopter parent nonsense. While silly, and toothless, the real problem is the lack of not talking in the movie. Why call this Hush if no one shuts up?

Now, the second movie had a better idea. Starring a woman who can’t hear (not for reals, because acting) and featuring only four actors, there’s less than 15 minutes of actual dialog in the movie. Will this be enough to sway our crew into making a VHS classic change the box art? Listen if you dare.
