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!
It’s November, and as we enter into the chilly wintertime I thought it might be fun to heat things up with a look at the male stripper TVM! We’ll be covering For Ladies Only (1981) and Ladykillers (1988). We’re looking at recording some point during the week of November 13th-17th, and I will update the social medias when I know for sure. But for now, if you’d like to comment on this thing known as male exotic dancing and its love affair with the small screen, drop us a line! We’d love to hear from you!
Yes, I know our ABC Afterschool Special episode hasn’t gone out yet, but we’re recording our next episode very soon and we need YOUR help! We want you to let us know what TV horror movie marathon you would plan for Halloween. Contact us with 3-5 TVM titles. You can just send just the names of the movies or give us a sentence or two letting us know why you chose those telefilms. We haven’t set the exact recording date but it’s sometime before he 12th, so please drop us a line!!!
So totally stoked over our upcoming special episode where we’ll be discussing two Lance Guest Afterschool Specials, Please Don’t Hit Me, Mom (1981) and Between Two Loves (1982, aka Two Loves for Jenny). Lance was kind enough to answer a few email questions about working on the ABC Afterschool Special, as well as reflecting on some of his other TV work, and I’ll be hosting this Q&A over at my blog! I’m so super thrilled he took the time to do this!
We’re scheduled to record on the 28th of September, so if you have any thoughts you’d like to share on the Afterschool Special or the CBS Schoolbreak, please have all feedback to us by the evening of the 27th. You can contact us by several different methods, and we are also accepting MP3s now! We’re almost modern over here!
