This week we’re taking a look at two movies that tried to put some old pulp heroes into their own movie franchises but ultimately failed. First up Alec Baldwin tries to show us that THE SHADOW knows. After that Billy Zane gets ripped and tells us to slam evil in THE PHANTOM. After that we chat about CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY, MUPPETS MOVIES, and finally end per usual with some Mandalorian talk.
We are revisiting the Blacula films with Pam Grier in SCREAM BLACULA SCREAM. Then we’re visiting a scientist who has the best intentions but sadly he ends up creating BLACKENSTEIN. We also talk about the merits of Friday The 13th films, Good Boys, The Movies That Made Us, and Of Unknown Origin. Also at the end we chat about the latest episode of The Mandalorian.
This week it’s time to spend some quality time in the rooms in our houses that we neglect. First up we talk DON’T LOOK IN THE ATTIC and then we DON’T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT. After that we talk some Jojo Rabbit, 21 Bridges, Star Wars Rebels, and in what has become a new segment we talk about episode of 4 of THE MANDALORIAN.
We have a weird theme this month but let’s just say it was parents going on crazy adventures. Ok? First up Jeffrey Jones and Teri Garr have to save the Earth from destruction from Jon Lovitz in MOM AND DAD SAVE THE WORLD. Then John Ritter and Mindy from MORK AND MINDY get sucked into their TV . . . that Jeffrey Jones sold them in STAY TUNED. Also we chat about Disney+, The New Kids, and Doctor Sleep. Then at the end of the show we chat about the first two episodes of The Mandalorian.
This week Doug and Bryan are reviewing some spy movies. First up Michael Caine gets his son kidnapped and gets to ride on a Hovercraft in THE BLACK WINDMILL. After that Robert Redford finds all his office mates dead and of course that means he has to sleep with Faye Dunaway in THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR. Also we chat about THE MANDALORIAN, DOCTOR SLEEP, and STAR WARS in general.
We keep the vamp train going with a comedic twist. First up is Jim Carrey playing a virgin who gets picked up by a sexy vamp in ONCE BITTEN. Then Nic Cage goes crazy in VAMPIRE’S KISS. After that we chat about LIVING WITH YOURSELF, HAUNT, and HALLOWEEN.
It’s time to talk about some badass vampire slayers. First up is the movie that introduced us to the biggest mall girl around BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. Then after that we see how cool it is to wear all black pleather before THE MATRIX made it cool in BLADE. We also talk about LIVING WITH YOURSELF, ROBOCOP, and Doug throws a fit over THE BABADOOK.
This week we’re checking out two Masters Of Horror episodes from Stuart Gordon. First up a student moves into the weirdest apartment building in DREAMS IN THE WITCH HOUSE. After that Edgar Allen Poe finds that his feline friend is actually his worst enemy in THE BLACK CAT. After that we talk JOKER, 3 FROM HELL, SHADOW OF THE MOON, and get really mad at VALENTINE.

End bumper performed by Eric Daino.

After that Larry Drake makes a house call in DR. GIGGLES. We also talk about JAY AND SILENT BOB REBOOT, EL CAMINO, and CANDYMAN.
At the last minute we decided to tackle two Stephen King inspired movies. First up is the recently released IN THE TALL GRASS. Then we discuss GRAVEYARD SHIFT. You’ll notice this week we jump right into the reviews because Doug and Noah decided to chat about Joker for 20 minutes at the beginning of the show. Luckily that has been tacked on to the very end so stay tuned after the outro music. We also discuss the upcoming Crisis On Infinite Earth cross over on the CW, AEW wrestling, and Batman 66.
This week we invite friend of show Tony Wash back onto the show to celebrate one of the recently fallen of the genre Sid Haig. Tony talks about working with Sid on his film HIGH ON THE HOG and then we chat about two movies starring Sid. First up is the maddest story ever told with SPIDER BABY. Then we head out into space to talk about GALAXY OF TERROR. We also talk about IT Chapter 2, THIRTEEN GHOSTS, and CREEPSHOW episode 2.
We close out Slater September with a pretty worn out theme. Two movies written by Quentin Tarantino, directed by someone else, and has Tom Sizemore as a cop. How many podcasts have done that theme? First up Christian Slater falls in love only to end up with a bag of cocaine in TRUE ROMANCE. Then we watch Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis go on a murder spree in NATURAL BORN KILLERS. After that we talk about Rambo, Christine, Grindhouse, and we get spoilery about first episode of the new Creepshow series.
For this week of Slater September we chat about two Stephen King adaptations. First off Christian Slater plays a bad guy mobster that gets confronted by the plastic bag kid from AMERICAN BEAUTY in DOLAN’S CADILLAC. After that David Arquette plays a version of death that is . . . well . . . David Arquetty in RIDING THE BULLET. We also talk about Hotel Artemis, Friday The 13th, Terrifier, and Rambo.
Slater September rolls on with two movies about guys who are too immature to deal with the situation they find themselves in. First up in KUFFS Christian Slater has to take over his slain brother’s security district. He uses this as a way to hunt down his brother’s killer all while breaking the fourth wall. Then we watch Richard Grieco play a high school student (snicker) who gets mistaken as a secret agent and gets mixed up in saving all of Europe in IF LOOKS COULD KILL. Also we talk about Netflix’s Dark Crystal, Blade Runner 2049, In The Flesh, Get Carter, Batman:Hush, and at the end of the episode we throw up a spoiler warning for a very spoilery talk about IT: Chapter 2.
So I tested all you listeners to see if you would listen all the way through last episode. Good thing is you all passed and I for sure didn’t forget to put the Mindhunter discussion at the end of the episode. As a reward here is the Mindhunter discussion that is very very spoilerific. Enjoy.
It’s Slater September and we’re bringing the most requested Christian Slater Film ever to the first week. We tune in to Happy Harry Hard On’s show and talk about PUMP UP THE VOLUME. After that we time travel back to the 60’s and check out some scandalous rock and roll in PIRATE RADIO. We also discuss Ready Or Not, the new Dave Chappelle stand up special, Dunkirk, and after our outro music we do a spoilery discussion of the new season of Mindhunter.
We close out Hauergust with a very specific theme that was unintentional. First up Rutger Hauer plays a former Medical Examiner who has to team up with a female cop to stop a killer that has returned from his past in BONE DADDY. After that Hauer plays a gynecologist who has to team up with a female cop (played this time by Pam Grier) to stop a killer sort of from his past in SLOW BURN aka WILDER. After that we talk about Cooties, Invader Zim, The Crush, Teen Titans: Judas Contract, 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, and Nightmare Cinema.
