Podcast 9: Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem (#74)

Format: GameCube Genre: Survival Horror Released: 2002 Developer: Silicon Knights

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a 2004 American romantic fantasy film scripted by Charlie Kaufman and directed by Michel Gondry. The film uses elements of science fiction, nonlinear narration and neosurrealism to explore the nature of memory and romantic love. It opened in North America on March 19, 2004 and grossed over US$70 million worldwide. This podcast is not about that film.

Instead Lewis and Ian discuss the well respected but not massively well known or successful GameCube game Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem. Well, Lewis does. Ian spends most of the podcast calling it Eternal Sunshine.

 

The original hero and villain, Pious.

 

WARNING – We ramble more than usual on this one, including such conversational vignettes as an appraisal of British actors playing Nazis, whether you can ever watch Eddie Izzard in a film without thinking ‘That’s Eddie Izzard’ and what it would be like for Lewis and Ian to share a bath.
