Invisible nazis, a guy in a Nixon mask, a truly awful wig and rocket science! This week we’re talking bizarre slasher HORROR HOUSE ON HIGHWAY FIVE!!! Written and Directed by Richard Casey, this non-union flick stars Gina Christian(Christiansen here) & Irene Forrest(F.) as college students researching a rocket built by a nazi scientist who become the targets of a crazed dude in a Richard Nixon mask. It’s a very weird movie with lots of silence, a future superstar cinematographer and one of the best performances by a supporting actor ever! You must have a low IQ!
This week we’re celebrating Canada Day by talking about this absolutely wild and rare Canadian horror, Chris Poschun’s PSYCHO PIKE! Wayne McNamara, Dawn Kelly, Sarah Campbell and Douglas Kidd star as two couples heading up to Lake Shippagew for some relaxation, fishing and environmental espionage who run afoul of the local sawmill. There’s also a German toilet photographer, a farting sherriff and a one-eyed gas station attendant named Willy!
It’s Canada Day weekend(and Mitch started another new job!) so what better opportunity to take a break from our regular episodes and get to know a Canadian? In this episode of DFB Shorts Christopher talks his horror favourites. How would he die in a horror movie? What’s his favourite remake? Who is his fave Scream Queen? Find out the answers to these and more!!! It’s an episode!
We’ve been eating apples like crazy and that couldn’t even keep this episode away. This week we’re talking about 1992 slasher DR. GIGGLES! Starring Holly Marie Combs, Larry Drake, Glenn Quinn and Michelle Johnson this late-to-the-party film missed the slasher crazy by a few years but is still a fun cut-em-up with good production values and pretty solid acting. Long live Erica!
Grab those citronella candles and bug spray, this week we’re talking about giant, alien mosquito movie… MOSQUITO!!! Directed by Gary Jones and starring Rachel Loiselle, Gunnar Hansen & Ron Asheton as strangers brought together to do battle with killer mosquitoes. Watch out for the probosis!
Hey Sis, Uncle Ted is coming to visit for this week’s episode. We’re talking about Eric Red’s 1996 werewolf movie BAD MOON! Starring Mariel Hemingway, Michael Pare & Mason Gamble this creature feature is pretty good with great gore and practical effects but very short and falls victim to some pretty bad dialogue. We enjoy it! We talk the movie, a little about production and then discuss Eric Red’s legal woes. Sis, it’s a good time sis. Sis!
White socks, board shorts, off-brand Speedo’s, lots and lots of slow motion and the hardest working college doctor around… this week we’re talking about David Decoteau’s LEECHES! Directed by Mr. Coteau and written by Fangoria’s Michael Gingold, this movie(?) stars Michael Lutz, Josh Henderson and Matt Twining as members of a college swim team getting sucked on by steroid-loving leeches. It is a doozy. We talk the movie and then play a game of ‘Decoteau Plot or Not’ where Mitch has to guess if a plot is a Christopher original or a genuine Decoteau film.
We’re back and communing with the spirits of dead children via Kevin Tenney’s WITCHBOARD! This mid-eighties supernatural spook story stars Tawny Kitten, Todd Allen and Stephen Nichols as a love triangle dealing with a pesky entity terrorizing them. We talk the movie, the age difference between the lead actors and more! Come get progressively entrapped!
This week we’re dipping our toes into a Bay of Blood aka Twitch of the Death Nerve aka Carnage aka MANY THINGS. Seriously, this photo-slasher has a lot of alternate titles. Directed by Mario Bava and starring Claudine Auger, Brigitte Skay, Chris Avram and Laura Betti, Bay of Blood heavily influenced slashers to come. It’s a kooky, but enjoyable ride!
It might be May but we’re still thinking about the winter months and taking another stab at creating a DnD-inspired horror, S’NO’W WAY OUT!!! When a group of travellers all congregate at a diner/motel in the middle of nowhere after being forced to stop due to a huge snow storm, they find the previous group and employees dead. Can they survive the creature that just wants to kill them? Is that so bad? It’s a long but fun one, and if this isn’t your cup of tea we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming next week!
