Happy Birthday, Mr. Wings Hauser!

Before Mind, Body, and Soul (1992), Wings Hauser & Rick (Hobgoblins) Sloane collaborated on Marked for Murder, a 1989 'thriller' featuring the children of Martin Sheen & Robert Mitchum, where a couple of hapless TV station employees get caught up in a high-stakes game of drugs, videotape, and death.

To Breen, with Love!

As you may already know, we have had a long-standing love affair with the visionary filmmaker, Hollywood outsider, and cinematic maverick that is Neil Breen.

To celebrate the day of his birth, we have served up all of our previous episodes covering offerings from his filmography. To you, Mr. Breen, we raise a can of tuna and hack into a government system!

Sister Tempest (from Joe Badon)

Matt is joined by Kyle and Jacob to discuss the new film from Joe Badon, Sister Tempest. We reviewed his God Inside My Ear back in Ep67 and were chomping at the bit to get back inside his wild, cinematic mind. We discuss the film w/o spoilers in the beginning and provide a spoiler-break point to stop the show, so you can wait until you see it before hearing the whole shebang.

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!

Rambu (The Intruder)

We're covering Pembalasan Rambu (aka The Intruder, aka Rambu: The Intruder), starring Peter "The Stabilizer" O'Brian, for our next ep. The only version on YouTube was a German dub and that's no fun for us! So, we uploaded an English version and made it private to share with you. Let's see how doing it this way works. Let us know if you have any problems watching or sharing it.

TCTT Coronavirus Revival* Is Here!

*For our sanity, we're reviving the show during the pandemic to give us an excuse to talk together and have a much-needed laugh.

Matt is joined by Joe Kincher and Jason Farrell to discuss NIGHT TRAIN TO TERROR, an infamous anthology film from 1985 that hacks 3 unrelated feature films into a delirious mess. God and Satan ride a train together and determine the fate of the characters from some weird-ass movie made even more weird-ass by hatchet-job editing. Check it out!

We're contributing to the Vincent Price Blogathon!

Since we're back and producing content for the people during the pandemic, we jumped at the chance to contribute to The Vincent Price Blogathon. If you're not familiar with the idea, bloggers, podcasters, et al, select a work from Price's vast resume and contribute a review or some other related content. We selected SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN from Amicus Productions, a producer of many of our favorite '60s and '70s horror films. Make sure to check it out on Amazon Prime and make sure to check out some of the other contributions from the blogosphere.

The Return of the Curse of That's Cool, That's Trash's Ghost!

 We hope all of you out there are staying home and staying safe. We've found that we're doing that easily, but staying SANE in these crazy times is another thing altogether. We decided that a fun alternative to watching the news and scrolling through Twitter endlessly would be to revive the show to help with our isolation stress and cabin fever. Hopefully, some new episodes would be a fun diversion for you, too. We're aiming for an episode a week. Some of the upcoming titles are pictured below. Have a title you always wanted us to do? Want to be a guest on the show? Let us know if in the comments below or on Twitter @that_trash

Series Finale: TWISTED PAIR (2018)!!!

Matt is joined by the core TCTT gang: Jacob, Joe, and Kyle to watch & review Neil Breen's 5th film Twisted Pair together for the big 100th episode finale. These 100 episodes have been a blast to create over the last 6.5 years and we want to thank all the wonderful people who gave of their time and sanity to explore the psychotronic world with us. We'll still be kicking around the 'Net and may do something for fun here or there, but for now, it's time to move on. Do us a favor, will ya? Stay trashy.
