Episode 22: Small Screen Proto Slashers!

Screen Shot 2017-06-08 at 9.30.20 PM

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!

Also, our new friend Kevin has three podcasts you might be interested in:

Tuning In To Scifi TV podcast (covering all genre TV shows)
Saturday B Movie Reel podcast (covering Syfy channel & other B movies)
Tales Of The Black Badge – A Wynonna Earp fan podcast

Also, make sure to pick up Dan’s book, 80s Action Movies on the Cheap.

And my book, Are You in the House Alone? A TV Movie Compendium.

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.

And here’s a couple of more:

The Sixth Dimension: Soundcloud|iTunes

The Hysteria Continues: Don’t Go to Sleep: iTunes

I will be adding websites and more podcast links through the summer. Our goal is to build up a nice community. So, you know, contact us and let us know what you think of the show and who you are.

Tori Spelling To The Rescue!

Co-edCallGirlPublicityShotBlakely
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.


The one regret I have though is not mentioning that Dan’s new book is out and ready to be bought. Pop on over to Amazon and grab a copy of his Action Movies on the Cheap: 284 Low Budget High Impact Pictures! Go now!

We’re taking April off so I can go to London and talk TV horror movies at the Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies on May 20th at the Horse Hospital. Stop by if you are in the area and say hi! We’ll be selling copies of my book, Are You in the House Alone? A TV Movie Compendium: 1964-1999.

Our next episode will be a slasher-friendly double bill with Five Desperate Women (1971) and She’s Dressed to Kill (1979). Check out our contact page if you’d like to leave feedback!

screen-shot-2017-01-28-at-12-16-53-pm

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!

iTunes


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!

It’s the Christmas TV Movie Game Show!

screen-shot-2016-12-19-at-5-10-45-pm
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.

Happy Holidays! And enjoy!

Halloween Minisode! It’s Disco-licious!

screen-shot-2016-10-29-at-1-37-21-pm

We’re just in time for a spooktacular look at two beloved Halloween specials. The Halloween that Almost Wasn’t (1979) has a disco-battle with 1976’s The Paul Lynde Halloween Special (not really), and we duke it out ourselves with some serious Skype issues, including a sound delay which makes the whole recording just a touch bit awkward. But our love of the season is in check, and so is the fake Paul Lynde chest hair, so give us a whirl, disco baby!

 

And, as promised, here is a side by side comparison of the interiors of the (Paul?) Lyndhurst Mansion as it looked in The Halloween that Almost Wasn’t, and how it looks now:

At the end of the show, I also mention the book I edited, Are You in the House Alone? A TV Movie Compendium: 1964-1999, which is already listed on Amazon, in case you’d like to pre-order a copy!

Although the book’s street date is in April 2017, Monster Fest in Melbourne, Australia is hosting a launch next month! Read all about it here.

We’re also taking a pod-hiatus, but we’ll be back in December when the book launch has settled. That certainly does not mean that we don’t want to hear from  you, so check out our Contact Us page, or comment on this post. See you soon!

Episode 15 is here! We love Patty Duke!

amityville

Our newest episode is online, and it’s all about the great Patty Duke. The gang takes a look at Amityville: The Evil Escapes (1989) and Look What Happened to Rosemary’s Baby (1976)! Enjoy!

Get it on iTunes

Our next episode will be a Halloween spooktacular, as we look back on Paul Lynde’s Halloween Special (1976), and The Halloween That Almost Wasn’t (1979). Plus, we anticipate a return of Five Minutes with Nate, and we promise more treats than tricks. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss any small screen scares you love.
