Episode 52: American Zombies

With the return of “The Walking Dead” upon us, we’ve decided to dive into the flesh-eating sub-genre of zombie flicks placing our focus on the American made entries.

We all know that George A. Romero and Night of the Living Dead is responsible for reinventing zombies in 1968 but what about what came before that? Was it all just voodoo and non-gut munching? And what do we think are worthy movies that followed in Romero’s wake?

Tune in as we talk all about the undead and their cravings for flesh! First we talk about what we’ve been watching including newer fare like The Love Witch and Train to Busan as well as the torture porn-like home invasion of The Collector, a third trip to the world of The Lost Boys, and the first installment of “JOSH’S VHS ADVENTURES” where our brave co-host tries to pare down his VHS collection and starts with a whole lot of Philip Michael Thomas.

Episode 51: RoboCop Franchise

Nowadays 1987’s RoboCop is considered a sci-fi/action classic. We thought it was time to revisit the entire franchise and learned all about the law of diminishing returns. We also declare that Paul Verhoeven is awesome, Frank Miller needs to stick to writing comics, and Peter Weller is, in fact, the man. (Plus Josh really doesn’t like Nancy Allen in these movies).

First off we talk about what we’ve been watching with us both weighing in on The Final Girls and Blair Witch as well as some Cynthia Rothrock, 80’s comedy spoofing, and cannibalistic westerns. Plus much more!
