Who loves props? We do. That’s why this episode we’re celebrating prop maker Michael W. Moore. We’ll be talking about 2 of our favorite films of his Critters 2 and Leprechaun 2. So sit back and let’s talk some wrought iron, critterballs, and motorboating a lawnmower. Also we come with our own sequel to the Leprechaun franchise called Leprechauns. It’s pretty great. Also we chat some Brawl In Cell Block 99, Slasher, and Fargo.
For some reason it was decided we should watch Critters and Leprechaun for this week’s show. The only reason Doug gave was “Little things eating people.” Seemed like a good enough excuse to me. Other things we talked about were Mom & Dad, Slasher, and Coffy. We also ramble a lot in this episode. Enjoy.
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!
Today, hot on the heels of Deadpool 2, Sony dropped the teaser for this fall’s Venom.
Give it a look here:
Not a lot to see as is the case with most teasers, but what’s the consensus? Are we hyped for this one? Cautiously optimistic? Hate it already?
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 looks like Marvel’s Merc With A Mouth will be breaking the fourth wall a bit sooner than originally planned. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news Thursday of a not insignificant shake up for Fox’s summer lineup of Marvel properties.
First up is The Merc With A Mouth, Deadpool, announcing that it will be moving UP its release date by two weeks, from June 1st back to May 18th. The new release date will set Deadpool 2 squarely in the middle of an already crowded month of serious box office draws with Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 hitting the screen on May fourth and Solo: A Star Wars Story dropping on May 25th.
In a fairly shocking bit of news, The Channing Tatum lead Gambit has been pushed back from Feb. 14, 2019, to June 7, 2019. It was announced that in the light of Director Gore Vebinski’s recent exit from the long gestating X Flick this late in pre-production has sentscrambling to find a new director, realizing they are going to need a lot more time to turn in a decent movie.
And last, but in my opinion, most upsetting, Josh Boone’s horror themed take on The New Mutant’s is being moved back a whopping 10 months from its scheduled April release. To many this looks as if there may be serious problems with the movie, however, insiders speculate it is to avoid Mutant overlap in overseas markets.
Let us know what you think of these moves in the comments below.
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!
Its been, objectively, almost a decade since SNL has been at the top of its game, but now that the show is back in the lime light, a popular sketch may be soon considered “canon” in the Star Wars Universe.
Adam Driver appeared in an Undercover Boss sketch as Kylo Ren, infiltrating Star Killer Base to find out what the crew really think of him during his hosting gig last year. The sketch became so popular that now you can take his “Matt the Radar Tech” character into the massively popular Star Wars Battlefront 2.
Star Wars HQ has released footage of the orange vest’ed, blonde haired Kylo Ren as Matt tearing his way through enemies on different maps.
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.
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.
