We sat down with Jeff Nelson of Shout! Factory to discuss their upcoming Blu-Ray release of the classic 1977 telefilm The Spell! This is a non-spoilery behind the scenes look of what went into making the release, as well as a spirited conversation about why TV movies are important, and of course, why we all love The Spell. Enjoy!
As many of you know, I supplied the commentary track for this upcoming release, and Shout has also added an intriguing interview with The Spell‘s screenwriter, Brian Taggert! You can pre-order The Spell through Shout’s website, and you will receive it before its September 5th street date. Go buy it!
We are finally back with our summer episode, and it only took half of the summer to record it, edit it and get it online. To be fair, we had a lot of technical issues with this, so please be patient with the sound.
But Dan and I did have a blast discussing High School USA (1983) and Poison Ivy (1985). Lots of love given to Michael J. Fox, Nancy McKeon, Crispin Glover, Tony Dow, and some guy named Dirty Curt. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording it!
For the next episode we are taking a road trip to Crowhaven Farm (1970), and then stopping by Bay Cove (1987), where we’ll take on all things occult! Remember you can always let us know what you think about those films, or any telefilm you want to talk about by contacting us. See you soon!
We’re back and excited about our discussion about Five Desperate Women (1971) and She’s Dressed to Kill (1979). What makes a proto-slasher? We’re not sure we know, and that made the talk really fun for us. Hope you enjoy!
We’ll be diving into summer in a few weeks and discussing High School USA (1983), and Poison Ivy (1985). Viva la Michael J. Fox! You know the drill, contact us if you’d like to discuss these two films or any other TV movies you are interested in!
I also wanted to share some links from around the net:
Check out our good friend and listener Christin Haws’ Patreon page, as well as her interview with our other good friend Shannon on her podcast The Zero Plus Zero Show. And just listen to all of Shannon’s episodes. It’s a great show!

And if you are interested in what I discussed in London at the Miskantonic Institute of Horror Studies, you can get the full list here, and you can also connect with most of the podcasts I’ve been on recently here.
Wow, I can’t believe i got this mammoth episode edited and ready for listening (well, as ready as we usually are. Expect the normal volume issues and there’s a few pops and clicks as well). The gang discuss Death of a Cheerleader (1994) and Co-ed Call Girl (1996) in this Tori Twofer, and we feel our lives are better for it! We loved recording this and we all hope you enjoy listening.
It’s time to only speak of love and the Made for TV Mayhem Show has a lot of that for you on this very special Valentine’s Day episode. We’re looking at the May/December romances of the small screen with Anatomy of a Seduction (1979) and In Love with an Older Woman (1982), and the ooohs and ahhhs abound! Join us!
Next up is a Tori-Spelling-a-thon, and we’ll be discussing Death of Cheerleader and Co-ed Call Girl! Contact us here and let us know what your favorite TS film is, or why Co-ed Call is the best movie ever (cuz it is). Yay! See you in March!
We’re back and we’re going behind bars! Episode 19 takes us into the sometimes seedy world of small screen women in prison flicks, as we sit down for a discussion on the notorious Born Innocent (1974) and the far more campy Women in Chains (1972). Enjoy!
Next month, we will only speak of love! For Valentine’s day, we’re covering Anatomy of a Seduction (1979), which is currently streaming on Amazon, and In Love with an Older Woman (1982). Should be out in time for the holiday, and we’d love to hear from you, so please check out our contact page and drop us a line!
Welcome to our last podcast for 2016! We got together with Christmas TV expert Joanna Wilson to play a few games of Create A Synopsis For That Generic Holiday TV Movie Title, which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue but is a lot of fun to play! There’s clips, chatter, and lots of great holiday movie recommendations (real and imagined), as well as a look at Joanna’s new book: Triple Dog Dare: Watching and Surviving the 24 Hour Marathon of a Christmas Story, which you can purchase at Amazon or buy autographed from 1701 Press!
And as per usual, please ignore the popping and irregular sound. I’ll figure this thing out eventually.
