This week we’re discussing two Van Damme classics with Boodsport and Lionheart. So get ready to do some splits and punch someone in the nuts! After that we discuss Black Panther, I, Tonya, and some schlocky films starring Traci Lords and Linnea Quigley. Please be advised we do talk spoilers for Black Panther so from 1:13:00 – 1:42:00 there could be spoilers a plenty.
The Midnight Drive-In is going back to school! In what turned to be a weird coincidence we teamed up Class Of 1984 and Class If 1999 just because they had a similar title. Little did we know that they were directed by the same guy! Also we chat about such films as Robocop, The Ritual, and Doug gets excited about the new Karate Kid series on YouTube Red!
We get to see Brad and the selected Challenger enter an elimination. We do find out who is leaving the notes in Britni’s bed. Some drama in the kitchen makes Devin and Banana’s vendetta even stronger. And in the elimination TJ drops a surprise on everyone before a challenger gets an injury that might take them out of the game.
It’s an episode all about Jim Henson and his films The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. We discuss the awesomeness of the puppets, sets, and of course David Bowie’s bulge. We then chat about IT, The Cloverfield Paradox, The Shape Of Water, Pieces, and Before I Wake. Just before the show ends you get to find out that Noah is in fact a literate racist. Enjoy.
Work commitments kept us from recording a new Midnight Drive-In this week so we decided to dust off a classic episode of The Last Horrorcast and drop it in for a nostalgic look back before Bryan and Noah were on the show. Enjoy.
Grab a blanket and some hot chocolate. This week we are discussing a couple winter horror films. Despite some major technical issues during recording, we managed to actually record few thoughts on Frozen (2010) and We Are Still Here (2015).
We had a lot of fan mail this week, as well as some updates on our ongoing contest. Be sure to listen for the update.
We’ve been hearing about it for years. They’re making a sequel but ignoring the X number of films between this one and the first one. Lately it seems like it’s more and more a standard.
Everyone who knows me know I’m a continuity snob. I prefer it when continuity makes sense and flows perfectly. I can forgive a misstep here and there but overall I like it when you can watch an entire series and see how it all fits together without any glaring issues.
Marvel has released the official trailer for Ant-Man & The Wasp. We get our first look at Ghost who seems to be the villain for this movie as well as them seeming to use the shrinking and enlarging tech in fun new ways. What did you think?
We’re taking you back to a time of swords, wizards, and apparently a lot of rape. It’s Deathstalker and Yor The Hunter From The Future! Then we also chat about conventions, Bryan’s beef with Marc Singer, The Last Man On Earth, Harry Brown, Blue Ruin, I, Tonya, and The Midnight Man.
Welcome to a long episode. Why? Well we start off the show with Noah asking who is the best Muppet and devolve into the politics of gay unions on Sesame Street. We finally do talk about some Motel Horror with Eaten Alive and Motel Hell. After that we chat about A Nightmare On Elm Street, Return Of The Living Dead, and some SNL with I Am Chris Farley. Also a listener email brings a secret about the show to the foreground that not everyone may know.
We decide to take a look into what happens when those closest to us turn into monsters. We check out My Mom Is A Werewolf and My Best Friend Is A Vampire. Also we talk about completely selling out to the podcast gods, Insidious 4, and Doug talks some Hammer Horror.
It’s the future and in the future we do everything with Robots! We’re talking about the Charles Band films Robot Jox and Robot Wars! Also we chat about Black Mirror, The Blackcoat’s Daughter, and Annabelle: Creation. Thumbs up fist bump!
Merry Christmas! If you’re reading this then you got super sick of your family and their bullshit and decided to put in your earbuds and be whisked away to The Midnight Drive-In where there are plenty of Ho Ho Ho’s and the eggnog has been swapped out for straight whiskey. For your Christmas enjoyment we’re talking about two holiday themed movies with Santa’s Slay starring Goooooooldberg, and the new release Better Watch Out.
Also we chat about some other things we watched like How To Build A Time Machine, Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders, get some feedback for The Last Horrorcast, and at the end of the show Noah gets challenged to a bet that is really just a lose/lose situation.
We’re kicking off the Christmas season with two movies about killer snowmen. Well really they are one franchise about killer snowmen. We talk about Jack Frost and Jack Frost 2. Also Noah tells us how he gets into nerd arguments with strangers, we talk about Super Dark Times, The Punisher, and the news of Disney buying 21st Century Fox.
I’m joined by both of my co-horts from The Midnight Drive-In as we relish in our geek love for Star Wars in talking about The Last Jedi. This entire conversation is a spoiler review so be warned before turning on the podcast.

This week we’re looking at two films that have a cameo by the Almighty Lemmy. First up is the James Gunn penned Troma film Tromeo & Julliette. After that we check out the 1990 sci fi horror film Hardware. After some listener mail we get into some other stuff we’ve watch such as Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, Noah watched the entire SAW franchise, the 30 For 30 documentary on Ric Flair, and Joe Lynch’s new film Mayhem. Then at the end for no real reason we make fun of The Flat Earth Society.
In this special bonus episode of Challenged Bryan plays a game show with his other co-hosts called DID CT SAY IT? He reads off 15 quotes in his best CT voice and the others have to say if it’s a quote from CT or did another Challenge member say it. Lots of fun was had.
It’s here. The movie Marvel fans have been waiting for since the mid credits scene in the first Avengers movie is finally coming in May 2018. Avengers: Infinity War marks the end of what Marvel has been working towards for the last 10 years since Nick Fury waked out of the darkness and told Tony Stark he wanted to talk to him about the Avengers Initiative.
Whether you are over the superhero boom, was never into it, or are still in love with it as I am since 2000’s X-Men, you have to appreciate Marvel’s commitment to making this cinematic universe play out like it has. Rumors are we may be saying goodbye to some of our favorite heroes. My guess is that won’t happen until Avengers 4 in 2019.
Reports seem to be Marvel may forgo the serialized format for more stand alone films heading out of 2019 but I wouldn’t count on that as fact. I’m sure Marvel has plenty of surprises up their sleeve. I’m still holding on for a Slapstick/Sleepwalker crossover.
My co-host from The Midnight Drive-In Podcast Noah drops in and we sit down to talk some Justice League. What’s good? What’s bad? What just all around doesn’t make sense? After that we do talk some comics. There is a spoiler section so feel free to listen until the spoiler warning goes up if you are wanted to avoid spoilers.

This week we’re talking about 2 movies we put on our list but really have no recollection of why we teamed them up. The only thing we can guess is that they both have mutants in them? So we’re talking about Freaked and Street Trash. After that we go into some discussions of Spielberg, Thankskilling, Gremlins, Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, The Great Outdoors, Nightkill, RAW, and The Punisher.
With the release of the Punisher series on Netflix we figured it was a good time to go back to The Punisher’s cinematic roots. In addition it’s always a good time to go back and check out the 1990 cinematic version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Turns out these movies have a lot more in common than we thought. Since listener Allen asks the hard questions we also find out who is everyone’s favorite turtle is. We also talk about Baywatch, Robert Kirkman’s Secret History Of Comics, Event Horizon, and Colossal.
