TOUGH GUYS DON'T DANCE (1987) and goodbye, for now!

Dear listeners, we're wrapping up the return of the show w/ this extra bonus Wings Hauser Month episode. It was a great comfort to talk to friends old & new during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully, we entertained you a bit, too. but for now, we don't have anything else planned.
Matt was joined by Joe (who dropped out due to technical issues) and Pete (an old friend from the band Ex-Hustlers) to discuss Norman Mailer's film adapted from his hardboiled noir book. It's, uh, something else.

Michael J. Murphy's ATLANTIS

Jacob Balcom and Seth Garon join Matt to talk about Michael J. Murphy's Atlantis, a movie we'd discussed reviewing since we watched Death Run/Mutant City a couple years ago,
Murphy had a sprawling, ambitious vision for his antediluvian saga about the great lost civilization of legend...and a few thousand pounds sterling and a rented psych-hospital outbuilding.

Joe & Ben join Matt to talk about a movie starring one of Matt's favorite '70s genre actors: Jim 'Black Belt Jones' Kelly in DEATH DIMENSION, directed by beloved schlockmeister AL ADAMSON. Also featuring Harold 'Odd Job' Sakata & George 'One-n-Done James Bond' Lazenby.
Evil crime-lord "The Pig" aims to sell new freeze-bomb technology to the highest bidder, but Lt. Det. J. Ash aims to put stop to it w/ punches, kicks, and nunchuks.

Matt's wife Renee and their friends Sarah & Mike joined the show for a double-date night, pandemic-style: a movie over a shared Zoom screen and a review after words.
We watched a screener of the new found-footage true-crime movie Murder Death Koreatown (2020)...not sure if we'll be sent screeners anymore. We talk about all things found footage, the good and the (mostly) bad.

Vincent Price Blogathon! SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN (1970)

We wanted to participate in the Vincent Price Blogathon this year, so we picked a pulpy sci-fi horror movie from Amicus that was new to us and talked about it with guests Rob Hafferman and Devin Bruce. Vincent is joined by Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, sort of, to tell an odd little tale about body-part farming and composite people in the highest levels of government...sounds familiar.

Devin sings!
Rob paints!
