Episode 72 - MADMAN!!!

We’re headed back into the woods again this week to talk about Joe Giannone’s 1981 non-union slasher MADMAN! Gaylen Ross, Harriet Bass, Jan Claire, Alex Murphy, Tony Fish and Seth Jones star as counsellors at a camp being offed in classic slasher fashion by the legendary lunatic Madman Marz!  It has elaborate jacuzzi twirling, decapitations and one of the worst hiding spots!

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 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 Twelve - OPERA!!!

We’re raven(see what we did there?) about Dario Argento’s 1987 film OPERA starring Cristina Marsillach, Daria Nicolodi, Urbano Barberini and Ian Charleston. It’s a fantastic movie with an amazing score, grisly kills (including one of the best ever) and the occasional hilariously bad dubbing. We talk about the Shakespearian comparisons and Christopher tells the story of a real-life murder at the Metropolitan Opera in 1980 that is a parallel to the film. We say ‘Macbeth’ many times so we are definitely cursed now.
