EP16: Creature From The Black Lagoon

He comes from out of the murky depths, covered in slime and waiting to viciously seize you with his cold and clammy hands. He’s tenacious, he’s hungry for flesh, he’s… Jason on a cheap wine-fueled bender at the strip bars? Well, yes, but it’s also an apt description for the star of our commentary’s movie, 1954’s Creature From The Black Lagoon. Guided by two strange men wearing 3-D glasses, your fateful Amazonian expedition will take you further and further downstream to witness all of the fun and fear of this Universal classic. After the film, stick around for M&J’s recent horror DVD viewings and some serious hint-dropping on the next movie. So, jump on in for a swim… perhaps, your very last.

Review: Dexter, Season 1

JasonReviews“And to think… I hesitated.”

That is one of my favorite lines in film, as delivered by Dr. Channard (Kenneth Cranham) in Hellbound: Hellraiser 2, and serves as an accurate appraisal of my apprehensive dread and overdue appreciation for the cult phenomenon, “Dexter.” When something sends shock waves through the pop culture universe as pervasively as this television series did, I tend to run in the other direction and stick my head in the sand, like a misanthropically overstimulated ostrich. My leanings usually sound something like this, “If so many halfwits and hipsters love it, it must appeal to the lowest common denominator and will, almost certainly, revile me and confirm my decidedly anti-television, anti-human being stance.”

Hmm… well, 99.99% of the time this assessment saves me a great deal of monies on headache medication and keeps me out of unflattering prison stripes, which is nice, but this rather fantastic Showtime series falls neatly into that .01% category and had me hooked like a coked up Patti Hearst after about 10 minutes. Stockholm Syndrome, you ask? Nope. Just damn fine television.

EP15: Satan’s Cheerleaders

Dust off your terry cloth bathrobes and eyeball pentacle necklaces because it’s time for Matt and Jason to put on the commentary cheer for the 1977 drive-in devil flick, Satan’s Cheerleaders. Through margarita goggles, M&J relay the finer points of ’70s extracurricular erotica with a cheesy devil-worship edge, going deep into the hirsute jungle in order to tell the tale to you fine pre-verts. After the feature, expect listener mail, contest details, and more. One for all and all for one, Terror Transmission has a ball (or… four)!

You can’t keep a good cheerleader down. Especially when there are Flickr pics involved.

NEW: Watch Jason make our episodic drinks and introduce EP15’s guest star!
