As we head into fall, the Made for TV Mayhem Show has decided to keep things scorching hot with our next ep.! We’re talking vixens and their older men and watching Summer Girl (1983) and The Face of Evil (1996).
Because of my increasingly hectic schedule, we’re recording very soon. So, we’ll need feedback by Wednesday September 12th. Check out how to get in touch via our Contact page. See you soon!
While I furiously edit our Propaganda Telefilm episode, I thought I’d go ahead and give a heads up on our next double. Since it’s summer, I thought it would be fun to get a little sand in our hair with Zuma Beach (1978), and The Hustler of Muscle Beach (1980)!
Update: I’m SO behind on my editing. I’ll hopefully have the Propaganda episode online right around the middle of June. Apologies for the delays. Life has a funny way of making things difficult.
As always, you can leave feedback through one of our convenient social media channels. We’ll probably record sometime around the beginning of July. I’ll update everyone when we know what day! And look for our Go Ask Alice / Mazes and Monsters soon!
We just recorded our love letter to Kathleen Beller, but I can’t get to the edits until the first week of April. So, I decided to go ahead and give everyone a heads up on our next episode. We’re going to look at a couple of classic message movies: Go Ask Alice (1973) and Mazes and Monsters (1982). We’ll probably record in the middle of April. You can send feedback through one of our many social media channels, which can be found here. Drop us a line cuz we love you!!!
We’re getting the gang back together in March and we’ll be looking at two of Kathleen Beller’s telefilms, No Place to Hide (1981) and Deadly Messages (1985). No recording date set yet, but it will be sometime around mid-March. Send us feedback!
I know it’s late in the game, but we’re recording this Thursday, February 7th, and would love any feedback you wanted to send in. We’re discussing Death Takes a Holiday (1971) and Deadly Love (1995), and it will be all romantic and stuff! Contact us!
The holidays may be coming to a close, but I can’t let go of this winter wonderland (well, in Texas it’s more like a soggy desertland, but still… gray cloud gloom is not so bad). So, we’re holding on to the season and watching two snow-set genre films: Snowbeast (1977) and Ski Lift to Death (aka Snowblind, 1978)!
As luck would have it, both films are streaming on Amazon Prime:
Please beware of the quality of Snowblind. That’s some crap transfer… I mean, it’s horrid. But I’ve been wanting to watch something called Ski Lift to Death for some time now, so I’ll suck it up and hope for the best.
Also, for extra credit, I saw that the 2011 SyFy remake, Snow Beast is also up at Amazon. Give it a go… I’m hoping to squeeze it in. Drop us a line and let us know what you think of these snowbound thrillers! We’re not sure when we’re recording, but it will most likely be somewhere in the middle of January.
And again, heartfelt apologies on the male stripper episode. I’m hoping to have it online before we release this one. There was some time and editing issues, which I’m still working through. Thanks for your patience and for hanging out with us. We love you!
Well, first an announcement: The male stripper episode might not be available until January 2018! So sorry for the delay, but my schedule is such that I just haven’t had time to edit the darn thing properly.
Alas, Christmas is knocking on the door, and I want to get a holiday episode up and running before the big day. So, we’re doing something a little different and a little the same this year. First of all, we’re welcoming back our BFF Joanna Wilson of Christmas TV History! We love Joanna, and are so excited that she’s going to be hosting another one of our TV movie games! And, then we’re going to discuss the 1971 tele-thriller A Little Game, which is Christmas set, but isn’t necessarily a holiday film. We chose this one because it came up during our Halloween episode and because I recently reviewed it for the upcoming book Yuletide Terror. It’s been on the brain folks, so let’s get it out there. It’s such an underrated gem. Plus, it stars Diane Baker and Ed Nelson. So. Good.
We’d love to hear from you, either about the TVM we’re discussing, or anything else you’d like to talk about. Reach us through one of our many contact options. We’re recording December 13th, so we’ll need to hear from you by the 12th. C’mon. We love you. Say hello!
