This week a Joker is upset about another Joker, He-Man might be the master of the streaming-verse, rage rooms are all the rage, we continue our SpoOOOooOOOooky October by taking a look at Rusty Cundieff's 1995 anthology film Tales from the Hood and how it can work to balance the horror and the message, and Paul helps Steve pick out his Halloween costume.
This week we come back from our short break with almost the worst case scenario while being on a airplane, we learn that dogs will eat anything and everything, talk about how Spider-Man saved Spider-Man, Harley Quinn and the Birds of Maybe, creators regaining their rights, we kick off our month long SpoooOOooOooOooky October of horror films by talking about the George Romero/Stephen King 1982 anthology horror film Creepshow and contrast it with the first episode of the Shudder exclusive TV series of the same name, and Steve sees if Paul can survive the Treehouse of Horror!
This week we continue our journey through the Year of Cannon as we welcome El Goro of The Talk Without Rhythm Podcast and his pick of 1987's Masters of the Universe. Does Cannon handle the translation of a popular toy line into a successful film? The answer may or may not surprise you.
This week you have to make a sacrifice to see the director's cut of Midsommar, the Joker film has people divided about what's it effect will be, Ikea is good place to hide a lot of people, we discuss Todd McFarlane's art and his impact on the comic and toy industries and look into his 300th issue of Spawn, and then Steve has to decide what is all included in 300th issue of the Saturday Night Slasher.
The week we continue our journey through the Year of Cannon with special guest Jeff Ritchie as he choose to talk about 1986's The Delta Force. We discuss Menahem Golan's magnum opus and jingoistic fever dream of a film in which he attempts to tell the story of what should have happened during a famous terrorist plane hijacking. And by what should have happened we mean Chuck Norris riding around on a missile launching motorcycle and Lee Marvin being Lee Marvin.
Bonus: Because it would be shame to have Jeff on and not talk about Star Wars, the first 20 minutes is abut the recent D23 Expo.
This week we celebrate our 200th(ish) episode by doing what we do best, talking about puppies, ninjas, and... pumpkin spice favored abominations? We also talk about The Hunt being canceled, Overwatch making some odd character design decisions, and we interview Ash Crowlin, author of the extreme horror novella 'Birthday Girl' about what brought him to horror, his writing process, and the challenges and joys of self publishing. And to round it all out, Steve unleashes the Netflix, errr, Amazon Prime Wheel of Death™ on Paul once again.
We continue our journey through the Year of Cannon with 1985's Runaway Train. Two inmates, Manny (Jon Voight) and Buck (Eric Roberts) break out of a maximum security prison in Alaska and stowaway in a train engine looking to ride it to freedom. Things start to get more complicated when the train operator suddenly dies and the brakes burn off of the engine. Does Runaway Train pick up speed as it goes or does it derail halfway through like most other Cannon films? Listen and find out!
This week Steve might have bad dreams about a possible Nightmare on Elm Street reboot, people really want a film that probably doesn't exist released, don't flush your meth or else you will get meth crocs, and Paul asks Steve about the challenges and opportunities of self publishing a comic book and what it means to be an independent creator, and then we play the worst game we have ever had on the show (spoiler: it isn't the worst game).
