Episode 49 - MY BLOODY VALENTINE!!!

We’re celebrating Valentine’s Day and talking about  George Mihalka’s 1981 Canadian slashterpiece MY BLOODY VALENTINE!!! Starring Lori Hallier, Cynthia Dale, Paul Kelman and Neil Affleck as young residents of Valentine’s Bluff where 20 years ago Harry Warden killed the heck out of a couple people with a pickaxe on Valentine’s Day and now, on the eve of the first Valentine’s Day dance in 20 years people are being killed at Hanniger Mine. We love this one, and it is Mitch’s favourite slasher movie with one of the nicest, most Canadian, good-intentioned blunders during production. Be our bloody Valentines!

Episode 48 - LOVERS LANE!!!

It’s the first of two Valentine’s Day episodes and we’re getting into the romantic mood and talking about loosely Valentine’s Day themed 1999 slasher LOVERS LANE starring Erin J Dean, Anna Faris, Riley Smith & Sarah Lancaster and directed by Jon Ward,  Thirteen years ago Mandy’s Mom and Michael’s Dad were murdered on Lovers Lane by a hook-handed maniac(or was it!?) and now its Michael and his pals being murdered. This movie is a pretty big mess featuring incestuous relations, a terrible wig and a whole bunch of Coke product placement in the age of Pepsi. Line drive, bitch.

Episode 47 - HIDE AND GO SHRIEK!!!

They’re a bunch of fabulous friends who survived high school… for now. This week we’re talking about Skip Schoolnik’s 1988 slasher HIDE AND GO SHRIEK starring Bunky Jones, Donna Baltron, Brittain Frye, Annette Sinclair & Sean Kanan. Eight freshly graduated teens spend the night at one of their father’s furniture store and are stalked by a killer who is anything but a Laz-E-Boy.

Episode 46 - THE INITIATION!!!

We’re dipping back into the murky waters of dreams, hypnosis, secret siblings and endless mentions of Freud and Jung this week with THE INITIATION! Starring Daphne Zuniga, Marilyn Kagan, Hunter Tylo and Frances Peterson as our sorority sisters and with big names like Vera Miles & Clu Gulager, this slasher has some quality acting and a pretty solid final 20 minutes but it’s definitely an uphill battle to get there.  We talk about the movie, Christopher talks a little about the production & Mitch can’t believe there were psychology consultants. Marcia says it best, “It’s like looking for the meaning of life in a donut hole.”
