#25 The Beyond Belief Cinematic Universe [S3E6 with Mohamad el Masri]

#25 The Beyond Belief Cinematic Universe [S3E6 with Mohamad el Masri]

Chris is out for this episode, but in his place we have guest host Mohamad el Masri, who is a writer on HBO’s Here And Now. Mohamad wants to believe in the supernatural but ultimately comes at things with a scientific approach.

Story 1: Red Line—a reckless race car driver gets a warning from beyond the grave.

  • Mohamad wonders if the speedway is haunted. Jesse believes that ghosts can haunt people in addition to places. If only Chris were he to answer that question…
  • Maybe the heat and the fumes caused the driver to hallucinate.

Story 2: Two Sisters—a woman marries her dead sister’s husband, only to discover something strange with the wedding dress.

  • It’s a logistical nightmare for the sister to switch clothes with her dead sister in the middle of the funeral floor.
  • The dress may have been un-wearable after the morticians fixed it to the dead body.

Story 3: Eclipse—on the eve of a full moon, a prisoner believing he is a werewolf asks to be placed in a room with no windows.

  • Jesse believes this one is a bottle episode.
  • Kyle points out that the vampire segment was true.

Story 4: The Ice Box—when a man suffers from heat stroke outside an antique store, a large block of ice appears at just the right moment.

  • Mohamad points out that the character in the Little Giants was named The Ice Box.
  • Mohamad doesn’t buy the initials carved into the icebox. Kyle thinks this detail was just added by writers.
  • Jesse thinks it was just a hot day in the writer’s room.

Story 5: The Gathering—a burglar attempts to rob four elderly women, but discovers he may be outmatched when strange things start to happen.

  • The group loves this one so much… but does that make it fiction?
  • Mohamad thinks it felt too silly to be fact.

The story results are revealed:

  • Tiffany gets a ZERO.
  • Mohamad points out the relevance of Beyond Beyond Belief in today’s culture.
  • To find out which stories are fact and which are fiction… you must listen to the podcast, or check out the full episode below or on Amazon Prime!

Mark still can’t decide on an intro, and there’s a theme to this episode: Dreams. And Revenge. Umm.

Story 1: The Nightmare—a woman who’s having nightmares of her husband dying, sets into a motion a specific sequence of events.

  • Mark still believes that dreams can predict the future. Jesse thinks it’s more like deja vu.
  • Most don’t believe that a person could stab a bush with shears in such a way that it would impale someone.
  • Tiffany thinks the woman killed the man and came up with this crazy story.
  • Everyone is impressed by how smart and competent they portray the groundskeeper.

Story 2: The Stalker—a widow & daughter are plagued by visions of a horrible ex-boyfriend through the fathers compact.

  • Turns out men don’t know what women’s compacts are.
  • No one understands how a man can be thwarted by shining light in his eyes.

Story 3: The Impossible Car Dream—a boy’s dream of his dream car comes true, but with a twist of vengeance.

  • Tiffany feels this is realistic but doesn’t see how it was told.
  • Jesse points out that it feels like a local news story, but who pieced it all together?
  • The 16 year old son was definitely played by a middle aged man.
  • They point out the weird dream sequence and how repetitive it is.

Story 4: The Dresser—a hot shot decorator takes over the mannequin display, only to discover some may not want him there.

  • The group agrees this is one of the wackiest stories yet.
  • Jesse thinks the man came up with this mannequin story to get out of the job.
  • Can it be too fiction to be fiction (TFTBF)?
  • Somewhat similar to The Twilight Zone episode The After Hours.

Story 5: The Burial—a tale of premature burial in the historical South ends in a shocking discovery.

  • Historical stories tend to be fact.
  • Kyle thinks it sounds like an urban legend for a southern hero.
  • Jesse couldn’t understand a word any of these men were saying.

Today we review Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction season 2, episode 7. Kyle and the gang agree that this episode was particularly good, though Kyle doesn’t quite know what a creepy noise sounds like, or what jelly sounds like. Jesse admits he doesn’t have a good grasp on the stories this week. Chris asks off air, “Do you guys write down fact or fiction ahead of time?” Kyle doesn’t. Tiffany does. Mark usually writes “fact” for all the stories ahead of time; Jesse usually writes “fiction”.
