Monster Bash 2011 – Runthrough


EP62: Dracula (1979)

Listen to them. No, NOT the children of the night… Matt and Jason! And while you’re bedecked in your best cape and fangs, your handsome hosts will be compelled to present their corpuscular commentary on the 1979 version of Dracula. Leave your crosses and wafers behind because you’ll really want to sink your teeth into movie background, apt comparisons to Coppola’s Dracula, the silliness of belief in evil, Langella’s hair, the dark side of romance, Jason’s Harker hate, EVERYONE’s Keanu hate, the eternal need for snacks and various other creatures needing to be dragged into the sunlight. And when it all turns to dust, follow M&J to the funeral where they’ll discuss recently watched DVDs. So, follow us. Because you love to be frightened.

EP61: Motel Hell

Is it a place of lodging, or a farm, or a shop for cheap, quality meats? Well, it’s ALL THREE, silly! So, just plant yourself in the secret garden and listen to Terror Transmission’s hypnotic commentary on 1980’s Motel Hell. And if you think Farmer Vincent’s fritters taste strange, wait until you get a load of Matt and Jason as they playfully grind up some movie details, more VHS nostalgia, population control, flirting with cannibalism, how to score damaged chicks, implied incest, fat-kid anger, Jason’s girlfriend’s hummus and various other schemes to lure you into compliance. Too many people, not enough food, but just the right amount of facts and funny. And, best of all… NO preservatives!
