After a month long (and unplanned) break, we are finally back! This episode was recorded with the intention of getting it into October but here we are on Thanksgiving day instead. OH WELL! Erik picked the Japanese cyber-punk, horror movie Tetsuo: The Iron Man. Good pal Jimmy came on to help us discuss this very eccentric, low-budget shocker.
We're officially off that hellish ride through space, and onto bigger and better things. It was Brittany's turn to pick the flick this week, and feeling as though we deserved to treat ourselves, she selected 2014’s Housebound- a thriller/comedy straight out of New Zealand. Having heard nothing but great things about this movie, it felt a little indulgent… But hey, treat yo’self, amiright?
Housebound follows Kylie, a young delinquent who is sentenced to house arrest under her mother’s care after being arrested for breaking into an ATM. While stuck with her mother and stepfather, Kylie learns some disturbing things about their family home. Like how a teenage girl was murdered there decades ago… Back when their house was used as a mental institution. NBD. As Kylie becomes obsessed with solving the murder, things around the house just get weirder and weirder. Can she solve it before her and her mother become the killer’s next victims?
We've had a pretty good track record with movies made in New Zealand, so we discuss how this measures up to some of our favorites!
Brittany is back at it again with another horror comedy. We watched the 2015 release from New Zealand, Deathgasm! A death metal band forced to battle the devil after playing a song that causes people in ear shot to become possessed. This movie was BRUTAL! What kind of brutal you ask? Listen up to find out how it measure up on the Fuck Scale!
We take in our 50th episode with Erik's pick for our horror movie adventure this month with the Japanese horror/comedy Wild Zero! Yes. We did in fact play along with the drinking game portion of this movie. Our friend Jimmy comes on to help us drink, discuss and debate.
We watched Erik's pick this week and that was the 1988 movie Robowar! Predator meets RoboCop when a bunch of guys just wander around the jungle unloading their automatic weapons on things they think they see. Erik has a predilection towards "Robo" movies and I think we finally get it now. Listen up as this episode gets -GREASY-.
YES ANOTHER BONUS EPISODE! A day early as well! In this episode we "very quickly discussed" the 1985 French horror movie Devil Story. We went out in PUBLIC to watch this one though, that's right, The Arkham Film Society put on this show for us in Providence. Since we didn't have notes to take, nor did we have the immediate discussion on our side, we reduced this episode to a reaction to some of the major moments as well as rating it.
