List: Top 3 Expendable Movie Casts
This week on Episode 214 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by the new science-fiction horror film Life, we discussed our favorite movies with “expendable” casts – aka movies with big casts for the sole purpose of killing them off throughout the film. This is a tactic we’ve seen in all kinds of film, including action, horror, war and even crime movies. Meaning, there was a rich variety to pick from for this list and our lists will certainly highlight that to some degree.
On that note, which movies would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:

1) The Raid: Redemption / The Raid 2
2) The Godfather
3) Night of the Living Dead

3) Cabin in the Woods
