Up next...and...lost Ex-Hustlers found

Next week, we'll be doing something a little different. We'll be watching a movie for the first time together and then recording our show immediately after (sort of like how we did with F.A.R.T.: The Movie, but 'tapping out' isn't an option this time).
This time, Joe and Jacob will come together to watch 2009's After Last Season...a movie with a cat-on-a-Casio soundtrack, a cardboard and paper MRI machine, and 'cutting edge' computer animation straight out of 1990's The Mind's Eye series. It appears that YT has had to pull the full film down, but you can find it if you roll your sleeves up and look.

 Also, Matt dug up the final track that the guys were wrapping up when the band Ex-Hustlers went on (what turned out to be permanent) hiatus. He edited together a final version of the various mixes and even made a vintage MTV-style music video for it. Enjoy.

Matt is joined by Kyle and Adam to discuss the 1986 Canuxploitation martial arts classic TWIN DRAGON ENCOUNTER. Mullets, mustaches, matching vans...SOLD! This movie stars Michael and Martin McNamara, twin kickboxing brothers who produced the film to brand themselves as Canada's answer to Chuck Norris (or the animated version of Rambo).

Thank you, Mr. Miller...

Debuting in Roger Corman films of the '50s, Dick Miller was the jovial every-man character actor for generations of moviegoers.
A personal favorite is 1959's A Bucket of Blood, directed by Corman. It's hilarious and morbid and a perfect jab at the bohemian pretensions of the Beat era. He would often reprise that character, Walter Paisley, in other film and TV appearances: Hollywood Boulevard; The Howling; Twilight Zone: The Movie; Chopping Mall; Shake, Rattle & Rock; Rebel Highway...including his last role, in the as-yet-unreleased movie Hanukkah.

Thanks for all the thrills, chills, and laughs, Mr. Miller.

Matt's love affair with the filmography of Renee Harmon continues. Joe and Jacob are back to talk about this 1986 shot-on-video movie that's got mad science, gaslighting, pool parties, a hooded killer, and a ghost. Directed by Felix Girard.

Thanksgiving Special: Blood Rage

We have a new Thanksgiving episode just for you. Give this bad boy a listen while driving to visit family...or better yet, use those fancy wireless earbuds and drown out your relatives at Thanksgiving dinner. Stream it from the player or click the download button.

Granted, your family probably isn't as messed up as The Simmons: One of the twin boys, Todd & Terry,  brutally murdered someone at a drive-in theater 10 years ago...and one of the twins has been in an institution since then. He breaks out and heads home for Thanksgiving to make things right with the world. Lots of slashing and some effective gore FX ensue.

We've got The Broken Plane Podcast hosts JB & TK back for more. They were kind enough to be guests on last year's Turkey Day extravaganza Home, Sweet Home. Check out their show and give them a follow on Twitter: @TheBrokenPlane.

From all of us, safe travels and happy Thanksgiving!

TK's Blood Rage limerick:
There were two twin brothers, Todd & Terry
Todd went silent when Terry got scary
When Todd snapped out of it
That's when Terry lost his shit
Thanksgiving dinner's served with blood, not cranberry

That's not cranberry sauce, Artie...
