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!

For the first week of Mexican Horror month, we check out the 1975 nunsploitation (which is apparently a genre) movie SATÁNICO PANDEMONIUM!

Join us as we review the film, dissect yet another wonderful DVD synopsis, and struggle to remember the names of ANYBODY in the movie.

Warning: The discussion gets a little blue. If you’re listening with children, well, why did you even decide to do that in the first place?

First Films Month #1: DUEL (1971)

It’s the first week of First Films month and we’re starting with the big guns. Did you know filmmaking giant Steven Spielberg cut his teeth on a TV movie thriller in 1971? That’s right, in this episode we’re hitting the road and watching DUEL.

Join us as we review the film, discuss our vague memories of American history, and talk roadside safety and/or proper sandwich ordering. 

Vampire Month #4: VAMPYRES (1974)

We couldn’t let vampire month go by without exploring the majorly important subgenre of lesbian vampire flicks! There’s a fine line between lecher and film historian, I can tell you that. For our final week we visit the 1974 British shocker VAMPYRES.

Join us as we review the film, attempt to play our vampire Bingo, and find out just how boring British cinema really was in the 70’s!
