Episode 280- The Evil Dead (1981)
Release Date: 05/11/2020
In this week's episode, we learned a very important lesson: sometimes Keanu Reeves is just not enough. We're discussing the 2015 Eli Roth erotic (sigh) horror film "Knock Knock." Special topics for your consideration include: a slight limitation in Keanu's acting range, corny middle-aged dads with an eclectic vinyl collection, tossing a fried egg on it, opinions about art, and a joke that finally finds its home. We've done one other Eli Roth film-- Episode 179- "Cabin Fever." We've also covered two other arguably erotic (SIGH) horror films-- Episode 286- "Knife + Heart" and Episode 302-...info_outline Episode 314- Phantasm 2 (1988)
In this week's episode, we're discussing a listener pick (thanks Roland! I guess?) with the 1988 sequel "Phantasm 2." Special topics for your consideration include: cool NBA nicknames for your pals Allen and Katie, an in-depth analysis of Tallman's horniness, a classic impression from a cinematic great, brain boyfriends, Whopper Jrs (Whoppers Jr.?), and the bewildering enigma that is Reggie. Did you miss our discussion of the original "Phantasm?" It's Episode 67. Want to check out some episodes on other films from the great great year of 1988? Some of our favorites are Episode 137- "Monkey...info_outline Episode 313- The Fate of the Furious (2017)
This episode marks our last one of this terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year. Rather than suffering through our semi-traditional New Years romcom, we decided to end the year by covering a movie that would bring us pure joy. We hope it makes you feel the same way, and that you'll forgive us for this brief foray out of horror and into TWO AND A HALF HOURS OF SOLID ACTION, BAY-BEE! We're talking about the 2017 8th installment of one of America's most beloved film franchises-- we're talking about "The Fate of the Furious." Special topics include: family! respect! cars! butts! and... babies?!...info_outline Episode 312- Black Christmas (2019)
Listen buddies, I am like 99% sure we made it through this episode without morosely singing "happy holidaaaaaays" even ONCE. I might be wrong about that though; regardless, we tried. For this year's holiday spectacular, we're discussing the 2019 remake "Black Christmas." Special topics for your consideration include: POOTS! Great cat names! Not borrowing your friend's DivaCup! Starting a cult! Ben Shapiro! We're all over the place, it's the holidays. This is our SEVENTH holiday episode, holy ghost. Here are the first six: 2014: Episode 9- "Silent Night, Deadly Night" 2015: Episode 61-...info_outline Episode 311- Girl on the Third Floor (2019)
*URGENT ALERT* In this week's episode, we get pretty lewd and we're sorry about it. In general, we hope you don't listen to our episodes with kids around but this one reeeaaally takes the cake. What can we say, we got punchy! We're discussing a 2019 film that stars everyone's favorite straight edge former pro wrestler, CM Punk, "Girl on the Third Floor." Special topics for your consideration include: the perils of being a generally non-confrontational person, having nebby neighbors who don't actually give you any helpful information, financial advisor tattoos, a very very drippy bodily...info_outline Episode 310- Among the Shadows (2019)
In this week's episode, Katie finally gets what she's been asking for and instantly regrets it. We're talking about the much-anticipated 2019 Lindsay Lohan spectacular, "Among the Shadows." Special topics for your consideration include: presidential prom limos for President Husband, having no motivation to do any of the things you do, FREXIT!, the benefits of recording episodes from one's home, sorta-vampires and kinda-werewolves, and the true gloriousness that is Lindsay Lohan. Big fan of LL? Please enjoy Episode 104- "I Know Who Killed Me." Big fan of absolutely nonsensical werewolf movies?...info_outline Episode 309- Urban Legends: Final Cut (2000)
In this week's episode, we let you jerks pick the movie and YOU PICKED BADLY. We're talking about the 2000 sequel "Urban Legends: Final Cut." Yikes. Special topics for your consideration include: the incredible Eva Mendes and a bunch of other bunko people, a brief dive into the life and times of Chris Gaines, some true crime talk, some urban legend talk, and winning the Hitchcock Award: how your life will be changed forever. Did you miss the first "Urban Legend?" It's Episode 221. Do you for some reason love kinda crappy slashers of the late 90s/early 00s? How about Episode 8 (!)- "I...info_outline Episode 308- Beyond the Door (1974)
In this week's episode, we're here to just roll around in an absolutely bananas Italian film, the 1974 supernatural (?) horror movie "Beyond the Door." Holy ghost. Special topics for your consideration include: pea soup straight from the can, distracting leg/head ratios, extremely funky songs, a feeling of genuine pity for child actors, and what would happen if you heard about the plot of "The Exorcist" then confused it with another movie you read about called "Rosemary's Baby" and immediately turned it into a script. Oh and by the way, we changed the name of this podcast to "Boat Homes" so we...info_outline Episode 307- Attack the Block (2011)
In this week's episode, we're loopy on prosecco and the fact that we still didn't know who won the election at the time of recording, which is just fine because we are talking about the 2011 British sci-fi horror comedy "Attack the Block." Special topics for your consideration include: an extremely brief synopsis of a television series that has been running for nearly 40 seasons, wiggly dog butts, slang we *absolutely* do not understand, the concept of Katie being Freaky Friday'd with a teenage boy and digressions: lots of em. British horror comedy! First and foremost, check out Episode...info_outline Episode 306- Tenebrae (1982)
In this week's episode, we go back to the well of Dario Argento with the 1982 film "Tenebrae." Special topics for your consideration include: a very low bra budget, a special appearance by your favorite Italian plumber brothers, the appeal and impracticality of an entirely marble interior, tacking some weird future sci-fi stuff onto your movie but not really telling anyone and a very Dario Argento self-own. Would you like to experience Katie's true journey to acceptance when it comes to Argento films? If so, we've got Episode 23- "Suspiria," Episode 84- "Demons" and Episode 185- "Deep Red."...info_outline
In this week's episode, we're headed to a dumpy little house in the woods with the 1981 original entry into its film series, "The Evil Dead." Special topics for your consideration include: scenes that do not age well, the stereotype of an "Evil Dead dude," Davey & Goliath & Gumby, Allen's grave mistake (thanks, quarantine brainfog!) and lessons learned from this movie: never cross a bridge with a warning sign! Never enter a basement that is locked with chains! And NEVER play pranks, ya jerk.
Did you miss our discussion on the third installment of the series? You can catch it in Episode 229- "Army of Darkness." Do you like films that hat tip this one? You might enjoy Episode 16- "Cabin in the Woods."
