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!
In today’s episode we are talking about Doug Robertson’s 1991 film HauntedWeen starring Brien Blakely, Blake Pickett, Bently Tittle & Brad Hanks! It’s a fun, goofy little slasher that we both really love. We talk about The Haunting of Hill House(Spoiler free), drink St-Ambroise Pumpkin Ale from McAuslan Brewing Inc. Then we dive into this regional comedy/horror that, we think, was way ahead of its time in terms of its kills!
It’s a Halloween Party at Hull House and we’re all invited! We talk about our Thanksgiving, drink Iron Maiden Brewery’s Hallowed and share our thoughts on the new Pet Sematary trailer. Then, we dive into talking all about Kevin Tenney’s NIGHT OF THE DEMONS starring Cathy Podewell, Alvin Alexis, Amelia Kinkade & our fave, Linnea Quigley. It’s one of the best Halloween movies around with a stellar soundtrack, great camerawork and some pretty admirable attention to detail! It’s far-fucking-out!
Our Halloween countdown continues and today we are talking 2004 horror film Hellbent, a gay-themed slasher movie from Writer/Director Paul Etheredge and starring Dylan Fergus, Andrew Levitas, Hank Harris & Luke Weaver. It’s a pretty standard slasher, but that really works for it and it has pretty rad production design! We talk the movie while enjoying Big Rig Brewing Co.’s Tales From the Patch Pumpkin Porter, then chat about the production a bit and as always find out how it 6 Degrees of Jamie Lee’s!
It's our second Halloween-y episode and we are talking about 1995's JACK-O! Starring Linnea Quigley (the only saving grace), Rachel Carter & Maddisen K. Krown with cameos by Brinke Stevens, John Carradine & Cameron Mitchell, this Halloween number is kind-of a disaster, but a fun one. It has everything... parodies of Conservative pundits, death by toaster, nudity and some of the worst child acting...ever!? This week we drink Lake of Bays Brewing Co.'s Pumpkin Ale, talk about our favorite Halloween costumes, dunk on the movie and learn about it's weird production process! Have a spooky weekend kids!
It’s the first of our Halloween-themed episodes and we are kicking things off with dark fairytale Pumpkinhead, we also get into the season by enjoying with Great Lakes Brewery’s Pumpkin Ale(not sponsored)! Directed by Stan Winston and starring Lance Henriksen, Cynthia Bain, Brian Bremer & Mushroom the dog, based on a poem by Ed Justin this underrated gem is a fully saturated trip and we love it!
It’s our Shot-on-Video episode! Today we’re talking about three super low-budget 80’s horror movies. First up, we’ve got 1986’s Terror at Tenkiller starring Stacey Logan and Michelle Merchant, this movie is about two friends spending their summer at a lake house when they’re pursued by both a killer and a douchebag ex-bf. Everybody talks very bizarrely. Second, and probably the lowest budget of the three with a light sprinkling of homophobia and misogyny we’re talking about 1987 slasher Blood Lake starring Doug Barry & Angela Darter a group of teens are stalked by a mysterious, cowboy-booted killer while at a cottage and finally we talk 1989 Ozploitation film Houseboat Horror, a lacklustre Friday the 13th rip off with way too many characters and too much going on.
In today’s episode we are talking an amazing example of the slasher genre and Tom Savini tour de force The Prowler. Directed by Joseph Zito, starring Vicky Dawson and possibly funded by mafia money, this is one heck of a fun movie! We talk about some of this week’s new horror trailers, chat the movie and then Christopher talks about its weird path to production and possible mafia ties.
It’s Friday and we’re having a whale of a time talking about 1977’s ORCA! Charlotte Rampling, Richard Harris, Will Sampson and Bo Derek star in this Jaws knock-off about an Orca seeking revenge against a Captain and his crew who killed his lady. It’s much more style than substance, but has one hell of a credits song. We also talk(spoiler free) about two new movies we watched this week, Puppetmaster: The Littlest Reich and Summer of ’84!
The dogs are barking and Ginger is snapping in this week’s episode! We’re talking homegrown werewolf-body-horror gem GINGER SNAPS starring Emily Perkins, Katharine Isabelle, Mimi Rogers & Kris Lemche. Mitch gives a brief review of Sick House by Jeff Strand, we combat (oddly appropriate) upstairs dogs being loud, discuss the movie and Christopher talks about the troubled production!
