This week we’re talking about Carol Frank’s 1986 slasher and spiritual sister to Slumber Party Massacre… Sorority House Massacre starring Angela O’Neill, Wendy Martel, Pamela Ross & Nicole Rio. It’s a miraculous 80’s time capsule (with absolutely amazing clothes) that actually kind-of holds up and is a lot of fun! We talk the movie & find out what Angela O’Neill is up to now! I mean, too chic!
Grab your board shorts, Heineken and off-brand Euro pop-rock songs, in this episode we’re talking about 2001 German slasher shot in English in the Czech Republic. The Pool aka Swimming Pool stars Kristen Miller, Elena Uhlig, Jonah Lotan, James McAvoy and Isla Fisher as students at an International High School in Prague who are getting picked off by a masked killer. This movie borrows a lot from more successful films and is obviously VERY influenced by Scream, but a kind of fun slasher romp! Who took away your happy thoughts?

In the second part of our Christmas Spooktacular Mitch and Christopher create MALL SANTA MASSACRE. When a sack made from remnants of WWII Krampus bells finds its way to Winter Falls, Idaho eight unfortunate mall employees are locked in with a killer possessed by Krampus himself. Done as a DnD-style slasher movie, we draw our villain and supporting characters from the black velvet bag of doom and create our own final girls. This episode is very different from what we normally do but we had a lot of fun doing it and hope you have fun listening!
‘Twas the episode before Christmas and all through the house, nothing was happening and people keep getting milk and beer. We’re talking about TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT starring Jennifer Runyon and Linda Gentille. Shot in 10 days in California, this is a truly bad Christmas slasher that we found very dull and uninspired but we had fun razzing it! It’s a supersized, two-part CHRISTMAS SPOOKTACULAR episode and in part 2 we try something different and attempt a mostly improvised DnD-style slasher movie!
Today we’re continuing with our winter episodes and ripping sick powder bro, talking about 2001 snowboarding slasher SHREDDER! Starring the voice of Aladdin, Scott Weinger, Juleah Weikel and Lindsey McKeon this movie has everything, decapitations, a large amount of gay jokes, icicle stabbing, Scream music riffs and intense snow-blowers… its a lot! Christopher talks about Director Greg Huson’s inspiration behind the film and Mitch tells us all of the prestigious awards and titles that the location holds! Dude, bad karma.
It's 1973 in Canada, Trudeau is the PM, Alex Trebek has just moved to the States for his first hosting gig and cannibal girls are eating men in small towns everywhere... well, in Farnhamville! Before there was Ghostbusters, there was Ivan Reitman's Cannibal Girls! This little exploitation flick stars a very young Eugene Levy and Andrea Martin and features Randall Carpenter, Mira Pawluk and Bonnie Neillson as the eponymous Cannibals. We chat about the movie while drinking Beau's Janis and talk about the improvised script and stressful post-production.
It’s curtains on fall and we’re kicking off the winter season with… CURTAINS! Directed by Richard Ciupka(and Peter Simpson) and starring some great genre talent like Lynne Griffin (Black Christmas), Samantha Eggar (The Brood), Lesleh Donaldson(Happy Birthday to Me) & Sandee Currie(Terror Train) this home-grown Canadian slasher is kind-of a mess but features great performances, a spooky mask and a pretty iconic ice-skating chase. Christopher talks about the troubled, long production that spanned almost 3 years and as always we find out how it Jamie Lee’s.
Gobble, Gobble. Happy Thanksgiving to our American listeners! Today we are talking about Thanksgiving slasher BLOOD RAGE starring Mark Soper, Louise Lasser, Julie Gordon and Lisa Randall. This movie features some pretty memorable performances, great effects and a hefty dose of quirkiness. We chat about the movie, Christopher talks a little about production and then Mitch workshops his Thanksgiving slasher, ‘The Carver’!
We’re back from our impromptu fall break and talking about the true king of the fall break, THE MUTILATOR(aka Fall Break)! Written and Directed by Buddy Cooper and starring Ruth Martinez, Matt Miller, Connie Rogers, Bill Hitchcock & Frances Raines, this little gem does not disappoint in the gore and is relatively unique while also being a very by-the-numbers slasher film with perhaps THE best original song in a horror movie. As always we talk about the movie then Christopher fills us in on the production! FallBreak4Ever!
Happy Halloween!!! It’s our first edition of our ‘Shorts’ episodes where we will be talking about and reviewing new horror movies and we’re kicking things off by blabbering about David Gordon Green’s Halloween (WARNING THIS CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!) starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak & Nick Castle.
Happy Halloween! We celebrate by talking about the amazingly perfect John Carpenter’s Halloween(of course!). Starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Donald Pleasence, PJ Soles & Nancy Loomis(Kyes) Halloween started and exemplified the slasher craze of the 1980s and we couldn’t think of a better way to usher in its 40th Anniversary and our holiday! We drink Great Lakes Brewery’s Saison DuPump while chatting Halloween and then get real with a true crime story about “The Candyman” who killed his own son and tried to kill four others on Halloween night in 1974. We hope everybody has an awesome Halloween, play safe kids!
