Episode 380: ...and the Fifth Horseman Is Fear (1965)

Guest Co-Hosts: Kat Ellinger, Ben Buckingham

Zbyněk Brynych’s 1965 film The Fifth Horseman is Fear stars Miroslav Macháček as Dr. Braun. The film is ostensibly set during the Nazi occupation of Prague where Dr. Braun isn’t practicing medicine. Instead he’s cataloging the items the Nazis have pilfered from Jews who we can assume have been sent to the slaughter. This is never spoken aloud nor are a lot of other things. Instead, the film is rife with a sense of overwhelming dread that manifests in several interesting ways.

Kat Ellinger and Ben Buckingham join Mike in this first #Czechtember2018 entry.
