Episode 34: The Minion

The Minion

On this month’s episode, it’s Dolph vs. the Antichrist!  …or more specifically, Dolph vs. the servant to the Antichrist — in 1998’s The Minion!  In this supernatural thriller, Lundgren stars as a warrior monk named Lukas who’s sent to New York to stop a wicked demon from unleashing the Antichrist upon humanity!  Joining the show to chat this one is Tom Jolliffe, screenwriter and content contributor to the website, Flickering Myth!  Just how cool is Lundgren’s demon-smashing weapon (and why would writers have it disappear so soon in the film)?  In what ways are the film’s budgetary constraints apparent?  Could this be the most Canadian of all of Lundgren’s films?  And why does the climax have Dolph battling a door?  Join Tom and I as we try to make sense of Lundgren’s foray into the realm of supernatural-religious action, The Minion!

Major thanks to Tom Jolliffe for joining me.  Check out his articles over at Flickering Myth, as well as his Instagram!  Please feel free to rate and review the show on iTunes, Stitcher, or your podcast app of choice!
