EP50: The Fog

Something happened to Antonio Bay tonight. Something came and tried to destroy them. We tried to warn the inhabitants but they refused to listen to our commentary on 1980′s The Fog. But if this episode had been anything but a nightmare of porn fluffers, powerful mustaches, deformed children, naughty priests and modern cinema complaints, the dark icy death could have come again. To the Terror Fiends at sea who can hear our voices, look across the water, into the darkness. The midnight hour is near… and we’re almost out of booze!

EP49: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

The podcast you are about to listen to is an account of the tragedy which befell two drinking men with a pair of microphones. It is all the more tragic that they were somewhat young. But, had they lived very, very long lives, they could not have expected nor would they have wished to bring you the mad and macabre commentary for the 1974 release of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. For them an idyllic summer afternoon became a nightmare of cinematic cannibalism, the radiant ’70s sex power of Marilyn Burns, misanthropy, scream queens, misdirected feminism, umlauts, and lots and lots and lots and lots of screaming. The events of that day were to lead to one of the most bizarre recordings in the annals of American history. And, it’s kinda funny, too.
