Aquatic Horror Month #3: DEAD CALM (1989)

For the third week of Aquatic Horror month, we take to the open water with the 1989 Aussie thriller DEAD CALM!

Join us as we review the film, discuss Billy Zane’s extremely comforting and friendly filmography, and debut our new theme song!

Our theme music is “A Beat for You” by Pseudo Echo. You can find more episodes of this show and others at podpeople.me

Aquatic Horror Month #1: JAWS (1975)

It’s summertime and the dyin’ is easy! Put on your swim fins and prepare for a dip in Amity Bay with JAWS!

Join us as we review the 1975 Spielberg flick, dissect the man, the myth, the cartoon that is Quint, and make comments that are more than a little bit controversial about a minted classic. Even Brennan himself gets upset at some of the things he says.

Giallo Month #4: YOUR VICE IS A LOCKED ROOM, AND ONLY I HAVE THE KEY (1972)

For the final week of the increasingly interestingly-titled giallo month, we visit the 1972 flick YOUR VICE IS A LOCKED ROOM, AND ONLY I HAVE THE KEY!

Join us as we review the film, which was directed by co-host namesake Sergio Martino. We also try to wrap our heads around the serpentine plot, compare it to the source material (Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Black Cat”), and discuss everyone’s new favorite character: the Jim Henson Trash Lady!

Giallo Month #3: DELIRIUM: PHOTOS OF GLORIA (1987)

For the third week of giallo month, we visit Lamberto Bava’s 1987 flick DELIRIUM: PHOTOS OF GLORIA, one of the very last entries in the giallo cycle!

Join us as we review the film, discuss boobs for a solid fifteen minutes, and learn if the 80’s will treat Sergio any better than the 70’s!

Dark Castle Month #3: GOTHIKA (2003)

For the third week of Dark Castle Month, we explore the company’s first legitimate success, even if it was panned by the critics: GOTHIKA!

Join us as we review the film, marvel at how lucid Sergio is even though he napped during the movie, and discuss the deep societal issues being unearthed by this incredibly important film.

Dark Castle Month #2: HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1999)

For the second week of Dark Castle Month, we dare you to spend the night in THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1999)!

Join us as we review the film, discuss the world’s most devastatingly beautiful Krispy Kreme, and hear Brennan rant about the first theme month that wasn’t explicitly tailored toward his interests.

Dark Castle Month #1: THIR13EN GHOSTS (2001)

It’s time to open the cobwebby door of Dark Castle and discover THIR13EN GHOSTS!

Join us as we review the 2001 William Castle remake, discuss Sergio’s childhood love of the film, and experience a peculiar reversal as he actually has to defend a flick from BRENNAN’s ill will. Usually it’s the other way around!

Donation Drive #4: GALAXY OF TERROR (1981)

It’s our final Donation Drive episode! In honor of his donation to the ACLU, Patrick Hamilton got to make us watch GALAXY OF TERROR!

Join us as we review the film, get sidetracked discussing PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN ephemera, and explore exactly how this film fits into Brennan’s ALIEN marathon.

Gay Directors Month #4: SORORITY BABES IN THE SLIMEBALL BOWL-O-RAMA (1988)

For the final week of Gay Directors Month, we explore the David Decoteau’s 1988 sexploitation masterpiece SORORITY BABES IN THE SLIMEBALL BOWL-O-RAMA!

The title’s the best part about it. Join us as we review the film, if you can call it that, argue over a long-lost VHS slasher, and discuss the relative merits of Linnea Quigley’s filmography!
