Its Halloween and who better to spend the holiday with than Vincent Price? Mr. Price made many a great movies and played many great and memorable characters, but we decided we’d go with one of his greatest roles (and a role where he doesn’t even get to physically open his mouth), none other than Dr. Phibes! Yes, we’ll be taking a look at The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) and Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972). Plus music by Tim Curry, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, The Viewers and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
It’s not quite Halloween yet, but we’re feeling the vibes and what is October with out a least a few Italian horror flicks? The two in question this episode are Dario Argento’s classic, TENEBRE (1982) and the more elusive, SPIDER LABYRINTH (1988). Plus music by: Baltimora, Goblin, Jack Hammer, and Raf.
October is finally upon us and we’re already basking in it’s radiant glow—or maybe it’s in the pale, pale light of the moon glow? We’re kicking things off this month with some sexy werewolf flicks—starting with WEREWOLF WOMAN (1976), then, because we can’t have a sexy werewolf episode without Paul Naschy, NIGHT OF THE WEREWOLF aka THE CRAVING (1981) and finally the sexiest of all werewolves, Sybil Danning in HOWLING II: YOUR SISTER IS A WEREWOLF (1985).
It’s not quite October yet, but Fall is upon us and we’re getting in the spirit with some horror flicks that aren’t afraid to make fun of themselves and those films are Unmasked Part 25 (1989) and Slashers (2001). There’s nothing wrong with some silliness with your horror, but sometimes the combination works and sometimes it doesn’t, lets see how these two stack up in the horror comedy world. Plus music by: Black Flag, The Dwarves, Haunted Garage, and The Novas.
It’s September, which means it’s even closer to Halloween, but it also means back to school for a lot of the kiddies. So we thought we’d take a look at the film that started it all for Brad Pitt, Cutting Class (1989), but before we go back to school, we get to go to Cheerleader Camp (1988)—but we start with our thoughts on the new IT movie as well as the filmography of the late great Tobe Hooper. He made a lot of good horror flicks and they’re all worthy of discussion. Plus music by W.A.S.P., Murderock, Oingo Boingo, Faith No More and Nirvana.
In our 2nd and final half of Kick Ass August we go back to the 80’s and check out the Ninja trilogy—what is the ninja trilogy? Well, we're not sure we even know, but the movies are: Enter the Ninja (1981), Revenge of the Ninja (1983) and Ninja 3: The Domination (1984). Grab a sixer of V8 juice and enjoy!
Kick Ass August is now in effect! That’s right, we’re diving into the action movie genre for all of August—but specifically, martial arts driven flicks. We needed a bit of a palate cleanser before we go into full horror mode in September and October. We’re starting of with 2 kick ass classics indeed: Kickboxer (1989) starring Jean Claude Van Damme and Rumble in the Bronx (1995) starring the phenomenal Jackie Chan. Plus music by: Don Henley, A Tribe Called Quest, KISS and Dean Martin.
Our 4th annual Summer Sextravaganza comes to a close this episode, but we’re leaving with a bang…or is that a buzz? Today we’re taking a look at the Slumber Party Massacre trilogy! Staring with the orginal from 1982, the sequel from ’87 and part 3 from 1990. It’s a rather fun slasher franchise that just happens to be directed and written by women! Plus music by: Andrew W.K., Quiet Riot, Nirvana, Alice Cooper and DMX.
Our 4th annual Summer Sextravaganza continues this episode with a look at two naughty versions of children's stories. First, the late-night Skin-O-Max classic, Cinderella (1977) and Fairy Tales (1978), a sort of softcore-live action-Shrek. Also, we reflect on the filmography of the late George A. Romero and his incredibly influential body of work. Plus music by: Danger Danger, Cinderella, 2 Live Crew, Goblin and the Misfits. ROMERO LIVES!
Welcome to our 4th annual Summer Sextravaganza where we honor all things smutty in film. This year we have quite the line-up. We’re starting things off with some lighter fair, because we don’t want to blow our wads too soon. This episode we’re talking a look at Weird Science (1985) and The Last American Virgin (1982). Plus music by The Gleaming Spires, Oingo Boingo, The Cars and K.C. and the Sunshine Band.
