Phantom Zoned – Episode 39: BELLE AND THE BEAST w/ Abby Olcese

This week, Adrian and Scott are joined by film critic Abby Olcese (@indieabby88), to dive into the Christian reimagining of a classic fairy tale in 2007’s Belle and the Beast. After working through the boring movie, the gang also dives into a discussion about faith-based films and what makes a good one.

Check out Abby’s writing at Sojourners (

Phantom Zoned is a weekly podcast where host Adrian Torres leads us on a voyage through the worst movies that cinema has to offer. If judged guilty of crimes against cinema, the film will be jettisoned into the Phantom Zone, an inescapable prison where they will remain for all eternity.
