The Midnight Drive-In: Endgame & Deathrow Gameshow

Reality TV just doesn’t cut it anymore so we have to take things to a higher level.  How about a live TV show where one person is the prey and has to fend off a band of hunters?  Or how about a gameshow where prisoners on deathrow try to win prizes for their families after their death or maybe even their freedom?  If either of these sound great then you’re in luck.  First off we’re talking Endgame.  After that we take a trip to the wackier side with Deathrow Gameshow.  Also we talk some Walking Dead, Daredevil, and The Meg.

The Midnight Drive-In: Demon Seed (1977) & Split Second

This week we’re talking big guns and rapey houses.  First up is Julie Christie (which is the name of my very first girlfriend from back in 6th grade. true story) in Demon Seed.  After that Rutger Hauer gets Noah all a quiver in Split Second.  Also Doug tells us about trick or treating with little kids, we talk about the movie Trick ‘r Treat, and we go over favorite Halloween specials.

GeekNerdery Podcast: Tales Of Terror Live! Top 5 Obscure 80s Horror Movies

Bryan and Tony sat down in front of a packed crowd to talk about their Top 5 Obscure 80s Horror movies at the Tales Of Terror LIVE! Event.  Each one is going to drop some films that not everyone may even know about.  Listen in and get some ideas for your next horror movie marathon.

The Midnight Drive-In: Halloween 2018

This was initially going to be part of our regular episode, but we talked so much it deserves it’s own episode.  We talk very spoilery about what we liked and disliked about the new Halloween film.  What worked? What didn’t? What was the audience talking about during the movie? Find out all this and more!

The Midnight Drive-In: Trick Or Treats & Night Of The Demons 2

We celebrate halloween time by talking two movies set during our favorite holiday to mixed results.  Also Noah shares lots about his past, we talk some Annihilation, and The Haunting Of Hill House.  All this and more!  Happy Halloween Suckaaaaaas.

CW’s Arrowverse Brings Back The Original Flash

In the upcoming annual crossover on CW for the Arrowverse we’re getting introduced to BatWoman.  We’ve also learned in this year’s crossover (titled Elseworlds) that Barry and Oliver will be trading identities as Flash and Green Arrow.  Seems like fun.  But for me an exciting piece of news broke when Arrow’s Stephen Amell posted pics from the set with John Wesley Shipp in his original 90’s Flash costume.

Shipp has appeared already on Flash as Jay Garrick the first Flash but now it looks like they are trying to tie the 90’s Flash series into continuity as another Earth by bringing back Shipp’s original Flash.  We’ve already seen ties by having Mark Hamill reprise his version of The Trickster that he also played on the 90s series.  Does this make you more excited for the crossover this year?  It does me!

The Midnight Drive-In: Evilspeak & Brainscan

Computers rule our lives but is that a good thing?  This week we look at two movies that show how computers can ruin your life . . . sort of.  First up is Clint Howard in Evilspeak.  We then follow that up with Edward Furlong in Brainscan.  Also Noah tells us of his adventures on the high seas!

Final Reckoning: Wheel Of Fortune

We get two elimination competitions in this episode!  But one of them is for the Redemption House and we learn that the Redemption House is still a thing!  Lots of past relationship drama and name calling but we do get to see some people punch some walls so that’s okay.

The Midnight Drive-In: Last Action Hero & The Final Girls

This week we’re watching movies where people watch movies and then get pulled into them.  First up we get to see Arnold make fun of the action film in Last Action Hero.  After that we head to Camp Bloodbath with The Final Girls.  With Noah out on the high seas we decided to bring in filmmaker Tony Wash to give his thoughts as well as plug his wares as he has 3 feature films out or about to come out in 2018 alone.  If you want to check out more of his stuff head on over to Scotchworthy Productions and pick up some movies.

The Midnight Drive-In: The Fly (1958) & The Fly (1986)

This week we’re going Double Fly.  First we check out the 1958 Vincent Price version of The Fly.  After that we take a comparison look at the 1986 David Cronenberg version of The Fly.  Noah also tells us a horrible true store, we talk about Hell Fest, and get confused with the new Jeremy Sauliner film Hold The Dark.

New Hellboy Poster Is Legendary AF!

My first introduction to Hellboy was from the first movie.  I hadn’t become the Del Toro fanboy that I am now.  I knew Ron Pearlman as The Beast from the TV version of Beauty And The Beast.  I thought the movie looked cool so I decided to check it out.

I feel in love right away.  After that I devoured the comics as quickly as I could.  When part 2 came out I was completely in.  I loved every second.  Now just to wait till part 3.  But sadly we never got it.

When it was announced that they were not going forward with a part 3 but instead doing a full reboot I was bummed.  But then that first image came out with David Harbour in the lead role and I was instantly in love again.  He looks amazing in the role.  Mignola as said that this series will be a darker tone than the original series.  I’m in.

Yesterday they dropped the new poster for Hellboy and it proclaimed it “Legendary AF”.  With this poster it’s hard to argue.

The Midnight Drive-In: The Wraith & I Bought A Vampire Motorcycle

This week we’re looking at killer vehicles.  First up we keep going with more Charlie Sheen love from last week with The Wraith.  Then we head over to England for I Bought A Vampire Motorcycle.  We also talk about the movie Mandy, Bryan and Noah’s trip to the Drive-In, and Doug does a deep dive into the old Universal Creature movies.

*Just a show note.  The intro recorded by the ever awesome Julie from 19 Nocturne Boulevard seems very topical but was recorded months ago.  That’s how awesome she is.

CW Announces This Year’s Arrowverse Crossover

One of the highlights of the Arrowverse on CW is the annual crossover.  Ever since Flash started they have made sure to do a crossover with Arrow.  When Supergirl finally made her way from CBS to CW (where the show should have been since the beginning) it made it easier to have her be part of the crossover as well even with it taking place on a different version of Earth.  This year while they are trimming down the crossover by leaving out The Legends Of Tomorrow and Black Lightening (which also takes place on it’s own separate Earth) they are using it to introduce some new characters and bring back a big guest star.

Elseworlds!  Comic fans know that label applies to stories told in sort of a What If style in the Multiverse of DC.  How this is going to apply to the story is yet to be seen.  What we do know according to The Wrap is that it will be setting up the foundation for and introducing Batwoman, played by Ruby Rose, who will be getting her own show.

Along with that we will see the return of Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman and he’ll be bringing along everyone’s favorite reporter Lois Lane played by Elizabeth Tulloch of Grimm fame.

Some interesting casting comes as LaMonica Garrett has been cast as Mar Novu, The Monitor.  We all know The Monitor plays a big part in Crisis On Infinite Earths.  I’m curious if this is setting up a story for next season that will finally see all the various Earths collapsed into one reality.  It should be interesting.

Amazon Drops Familiar Poster For The Boys

If you’re a fan of the Garth Ennis comic The Boys then you’ll be happy with the first promo poster they have released for the upcoming live actions series on Amazon.

As you can see they have recreated the first cover of the comic.  In a world where superheros are celebrities The Boys are put together to make sure that those with powers keep themselves in check.  It stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Jennifer Esposito, and Elizabeth Shue.  It’s being brought to TV by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogan who also brought to life Ennis’ Preacher series on AMC.  Look for it in early 2019.

Freddy Kruger To Appear On The Goldbergs

I personally haven’t watched The Goldbergs but thought the scenario of looking at 80’s pop culture through a modern lens would be a lot of fun.  In the past the show has had guest stars like Rick Springfield and Rick Moranis on to add to their own love of the 80s.

In some episodes they deal with pop culture milestones like the release of Return Of The Jedi and even tonight are paying homage to John Hughes Films.

Well this Halloween one horror icon is getting his due.  Freddy Kruger will be on their Halloween episode.  And not only will the character make an appearance but Robert Englund himself will be donning the striped sweater and iconic bladed glove once again.  This marks the first time he has portrayed the character in movies or television since 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason.  Check out the promo below.

The Midnight Drive-In: Young Guns & Young Guns II

Not only is it the end of Slater September but it’s also Episode 50!  We sit down to go over the classic Young Guns and then follow that up with our Christian Slater film Young Guns II. On top of that Noah tries to declare who is the greatest Estevez of them all and after Doug brags about his free healthcare we make him read a long email.  All this and more!!!

Red Dead Redemption 2: How Weather Affects Your Horse

If you’re an avid gamer like me then you’re excited about the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2.  It boasts an enourmous map that covers 5 states.  Lots to do with building your gang and pulling off all sorts of shenanigans in the game.  One thing you didn’t know was going to be a part of the game?  How the weather affects your horse’s nether regions.

That’s right.  If it’s cold then your horse’s scrotum will shrink.  If it’s hot then is expands.  Do we think maybe there is a such thing as too much detail?  Either way I’m excited to check it out when it hits on October 26th.

The Midnight Drive-In: Slater September! Heathers & Sorority Row

It’s that time of year again.  The leaves are turning.  A small chill is in the air. It must be time to go back to school!  Luckily that falls during Slater September so we can celebrate with the Christian Slater classic Heathers!  After that we head to college to see what devious pranks befall the girls in Sorority Row.  Also Noah talks about his cat, Doug talks some Iron Fist, and Bryan goes back to the Summer of ’84!

The Midnight Drive-In: Slater September! Twilight Zone The Movie & Tales From The Darkside The Movie

Week 2 of Slater September is here.  First up is the movie take on some classic episodes of The Twilight Zone.  We chat about some of our favorite episodes and also talk the big controversy with the film.  After that Christian Slater appears in Tales From The Darkside The Movie to chop up some mummies.  Sit back and enjoy some classic horror anthologies.

The Midnight Drive-In: SLATER SEPTEMBER! Gleaming The Cube & Airborne

We kick off Slater September with his skateboarding classic Gleaming The Cube.  We then follow that up with one of Bryan’s favorite rollerblading movies from the 90’s Airborne.  Also some discussions of hating a ringing cell phone, Friends, and Jessica Jones.
