Episode 122: Halloween Party

All Hallow’s Eve is nearly upon us and during this time of tricks, treats and ghouls in the night we’ve decided to each come up with a list of five movies that would make perfect viewing for any Halloween get together you and your friends might be planning.

Our only restrictions were that they had to be of the horror-comedy ilk and that they had to play well to a crowd. The results? A whole lot of zombies causing havoc, a late night TV hostess, an adaptation of a cartoon strip, a loving homage of 50’s creature features and more.

To kick off we talk about the 19(!) films we’ve watched since last episode and seeing as this is a Halloween themed one it’s mostly horror – but we weren’t the best at picking the best quality horror – as Josh dives back into the HELLRAISER sequels, Chris headed to the theatre for two anniversary screenings, we cover a couple of anthology films with good credentials and much, much more!

Episode 121: Full Moon

Formed in 1988 from the ashes of Empire Pictures, Charles Band’s FULL MOON has been delivering all sorts of b-movie madness in their thirty-plus year existence. It’s a ride that includes killer puppets, demonic toys, freaks, shrunken heads, miniature humans and even evil bongs(?!).

We welcome back past guest, Vince D’Amato, to talk about what Full Moon means to us and have each chosen five of their releases that we think you should check out if you want to know just what a Full Moon experience truly is.

First, as usual, we kick it off talking about what we’ve been watching including a few Netflix originals, a Japanese zombie movie with a difference, rampaging animals galore, one of the most bizarre early 80’s big studio films ever, some time travelling murder, a four-boobed medieval stripper and so much more!
