Episode 58 - SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE 2!!!

This week we’re talking about one of Christopher’s favourites, SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE II!!! This sequel from writer/director Deborah Brock stars Crystal Bernard, Kimberly MacArthur, Heidi Kozak Haddad and Juliette Cummins as a girl band spending the weekend at a condo when Courtney’s dreams start bleeding into reality and they’re stalked by Rockabilly babe/Driller Killer Atanas Ilitch. Slumber Party 2 is a quirky, music-forward follow-up to the original that may not be for everybody. Love the one you’re with, baby!

Episode 57 - ROCKTOBER BLOOD!!!

Big hair, electric guitars and very little sense… this episode we’re talking about 1984 hair metal slasher ROCKTOBER BLOOD! Written by Ferd & Beverly Sebastian with Beverly also in the director’s chair Rocktober Blood stars their son Tracy Sebastian (or Tray Loren as he’s credited here) as Billy Eye, a seemingly(but not really) undead maniac singer with his sights on revenge! Rounding out the cast are Donna Scoggins as Headmistress’ new lead singer Lynn and Nigel Benjamin as band manager Chris, as well as performing the vocals for Billy. This thing is a mess. We share our spoiler-free thoughts on the new Pet Sematary, talk about the movie and then Christopher explains how Nigel Benjamin ended up lending his vocals.

Episode 56 - JUST BEFORE DAWN!!!

This episode we’re going camping and you’re all invited! We’re talking great backwoods slasher JUST BEFORE DAWN (1981). This little gem is directed by Jeff Lieberman and stars Deborah Benson, Gregg Henry and Jamie Rose as ill-fated campers heading into the Oregon wilderness for a fun weekend of spontaneous dancing and crossing rope bridges. It has an eerie score, some beautiful cinematography and one of the BEST Final Girl confrontations ever!

Episode 55 - SLAUGHTER HIGH!!!

Electrocution by bed, drowning by sewage, bathcid and poorly stored hazardous chemicals can only mean that we're talking about SLAUGHTER HIGH! This April Fool's Day themed slasher has a trio of Writers/Directors in Mark Ezra, George Dugdale and Peter Litten and stars a 36-year old Caroline Munro as a high schooler and Simon Scuddamore as revenge-seeking nerd Marty Rantzen. We talk the movie and its production, learn about Director Peter Litten's ghost movie and as always find out how it Jamie Lee's.

Episode 54 - AEROBICIDE!!!

We’ve got our lycra onesies, headbands and tank tops ready because this episode we’re talking about David A. Prior’s AEROBICIDE aka KILLER WORKOUT!!! This very 80’s slasher stars Marcia Karr, Ted Prior and Teresa Van der Woude as tight-bodied aerobics aficionados dealing with a killer who’s making their way through the client base of Rhonda’s Workout. It has a great title, bitchin’ aerobics montages, crazy choreographed fight scenes and amazing music but that’s really where it ends and it never reaches the potential it could have had… but, we had fun watching it.

Episode 53 - LEPRECHAUN 2!!!

We Lepre-can’t believe that it is St. Patrick’s Day weekend and we’re celebrating with our first legacy film, LEPRECHAUN 2 (aka One Wedding and Lots of Funerals)! Directed by Rodman Flender and starring Warwick Davis, Shevonne Durkin, Charlie Heath & Sandy Baron, this follow-up has little in common with the first film and isn’t even as fun. Warwick Davis does his best to carry the movie but it ends up being a boring mess with some unfortunate sets that don’t hold up. We talk the movie then learn about the skeleton puppeteer and what the original plan for the film and its sequel were. Did you have your iron today?

Episode 52 - FINAL STAB!!!

It’s a party at the Palermo Estate and we’re all invited! This episode we’re talking about David DeCoteau’s Final Stab aka Final Scream starring Erinn Hayes, Melissa Renee Martin, Chris Boyd, Jamie Gannon and Laila Reece Landon as young folks killing and being killed at a secluded house that was the site of a quadruple homicide. It’s kind of like April Fool’s Day meets Scream but with a lot of strobe lightning, a camera that’s always moving and barely a moment that doesn’t have score playing underneath it. We talk the movie and then play another game of ‘DECOTEAU OR PORN?’ where Mitch has to decide between two titles to guess which is a film by prolific director David DeCoteau or a regular ol’ porno.

Episode 51 - THE DEAD NEXT DOOR!!!

Hold on to your yellow trucker hats because in this episode we’re talking all about 1989 zombie flick J.R. Bookwalter’s THE DEAD NEXT DOOR starring Pete Ferry, Jolie Jackunas, & Michael Grossi (Plus Bruce Campbell). This little gem is a fun, goofy low budget feature shot on Super 8 in Akron, Ohio that follows a team of soldiers (Zombie Squad) as they set out to complete the serum that can finally kill the zombies. But it won’t be that easy because they also have to do battle with a local end-of-days cult that believes it’s God’s plan to kill the human race. We LOVED it!

Episode 50 - THE MANITOU!!!

It is our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY and we’re talking about one of the craziest movies we can think of… THE MANITOU! Written and Directed by William Girdler and starring Tony Curtis, Susan Strasberg & Michael Ansara this movie features 3(maybe 4) cases of brown face, finger lasers while nude, a levitating elderly woman and lots and lots of chanting. It is a disaster that everybody should see.

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. The fashions are outrageous, the hair is huge and the lighting is dark but we love this one! We discuss the criticisms that the movie is homophobic and give our opinions and then Christopher talks about his admiration of Bunky Jones and her hair, the lack of information about her lead him to find out about her passing in October 2015.

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.”

Episode 45 - SORORITY HOUSE MASSACRE!!!

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!

Episode 44 - THE POOL!!!

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!

Episode 42 - TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!!!

‘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!
