The-last-wave-1977-final.jpg

Lee and Daniel try to keep their heads above water while exploring Dream-time in Peter Weir's "The Last Wave" (1977). Can they make sense of what the film is trying to say about the relationships between colonial powers and decimated native populations, especially those found in Australia? Does the movie even know what it's trying to do? The hosts also respond to listener comments and play an interesting variation of the Movie God Game.

Originally Lee and Daniel were going to cover "The Last Wave", but Lee sustained a real life knee injury that prevented his prep-work. So the hosts decided to record an informal chat about what they've been watching as of late, and opened up to the listeners for some questions, which they answer on the second half of the show. There's lots of random asides and a bare minimum of editing in this one, which is essentially just an extended version of the usual opening bit of TMBDOS!. If you can't get past "umms", "ahhhs", "like" and big pauses, then it's best you skip it altogether.

Lee and Daniel finish their look at the Amando de Ossorio Blind Dead films with 1974's "The Ghost Galleon" & 1975's "Night of the Seagulls". Is "Ghost Galleon" really the worst of the Blind Dead films? If so, is it any good at all? Did Ossorio mange to perfect the formula with "Seagulls"? How would the hosts remake the Blind Dead films if they had the chance? All of this and more in this episode!

For the first time in TMBDOS! history one of our guest apperances on another podcast makes it onto the TMBDOS! feed. That's because Cort and Matt of Cinema Psyops invited the whole crew over to help them talk about Jess Franco's "Mansion of the Living Dead" (1982). Lee, Daniel and Paul help them ponder if this really has anything to do with the Blind Dead films, or is it just a well-paid vacation for Franco as he films his future wife, Lina Romay, having tons of lesbian sex? Can the hosts stop making crude sex jokes about sexual fetishes? All we know for sure is that this crossover episode of CINEMA PSYOPS MUST BE DESTROYED ON SIGHT!

Lee and Daniel are joined by the fantastic Cort Psyops of the Cinema Psyops and Obsessive Cinema Discourse podcasts to tackle the first two entries into Amando de Ossorio's Blind Dead series "Tombs of the Blind Dead" (1972) & "Return of the Evil Dead" (1973). This is the first part of a collab with Cinema Psyops, as some or all of the TMBDOS! crew will in turn join Cort and his co-host Matt on Cinema Psyops to check out the Blind Dead rip-off film from Jess Franco, "Mansion of the Living Dead" (1982). TMBDOS! will cover the final two entries of the Blind Dead series in the next episode.

As well as just talking the films, in this episode the hosts discuss porn parody, facism, and how to remake the Blind Dead films. Cort also gets to play the Movie God game, which leads to possible tension between Dan and Cort when we discover that Quentin Tarantino might be movie Hitler. Listener comments and what Cort has watched as of late are also covered.

Lee and Daniel check out a slightly obscure Italian-USA co-production from 1959; the Riccardo Freda & Mario Bava-directed "Caltiki, The Immortal Monster". Is this post-"The Blob" blob monster film any good? Better than "The Blob"? Or is it just a load of tripe? The special effects, sweaty breasts, and dissolved jerk-off hands are somehow brought up in the conversation. What the hosts have watched lately and a listener comment is also covered.

Lee is joined by the host of one of the best horror movie podcasts out there (as well as a plethroa of other quality horror and non-horror podcasts) Duncan McLeish, host of The Podcast Under the Stairs. Together they tackle Gary Sherman's "Dead & Buried" from 1981. A video nasty in the UK, and hamstrung by the decisions the producers made behind the scenes, the film had little chance of success when first released. The hosts dive in and decide if it's best forgotten or if it's a classic that more people should seek out. Also, a pre-recorded mini-review from Paul is spliced in, and Duncan plays a round of the Movie God Game, which may very well have taken years off his life!

960__the_funhouse_blu-ray_2.jpg

Lee, Daniel, and Paul dare to face the challenge of The Funhouse (1981), directed by Tobe Hooper. Is this an over-looked classic, or is it just a bit too dull to be anything but just okay? The crew has a spirited discussion of the film, tv guide, and jacking off in a Frakenstein's Monster mask. Who in the cast looks like a Troll Doll? What Lee has watched as of late and a couple of listener comments are also covered.

Lee and Daniel have a slightly shorter than usual chat about Jorge Grau's 1974 zombie film "Let Sleeping Corpses Lie" (AKA: about a million other titles). The homages and departures from Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" are discussed. Were the many title changes an attempt to repackage a terrible film or is this a hidden gem? Lee also talks briefly about what he's watched as of late.

Twins-of-Evil-1-1400x839.png

What's better than three Hammer films about vampires? Why three Hammer films about lesbian vampires of course! In this episode Lee and Daniel are joined by their friend and fellow podcaster, Gary Hill, of the Cinema Beef podcast, to tackle two films in the so-called Karnstein trilogy. Together the three talk about "The Vampire Lovers" (1970) and "Twins of Evil" (1971). After that it's just Lee and Daniel left to cover "Lust for a Vampire" (1971). Lengthy asides about IMDB users and how films were watched back when these were released are had. This episode is big, bloody, and full of massive boobs (and some really lovely knockers are talked about as well). What's not to like?

Lee and Paul decided to go way out into left field from what we've been covering as of late and check out the Joe D'Amato-directed, and George Eastman-written and starring slasher films "Antropophagus" (1980) & "Absurd" (1981). Do these noted members of the Video nasties list live up to their reputations? Are they any good? What lengths did Paul go to to first see these films? Is "Absurd" just a rip-off of "Halloween"? All this and more in this rather informal chat.

Countess-Dracula-1-1400x788.png

Lee and Daniel are back this week to talk about yet another vampire film - well, it's vampire-like anyway. This week it's Hammer's "Countess Dracula" (1971), directed by Peter Sasdy and starring the lovely and, in a couple of instances, nude Ingrid Pitt. How close does this story, based on the real life "Blood Countess" Elizabeth Bathory, stick to the known facts? Does it go far enough? What's with all the romance stuff and funny hats? The hosts also talk about what they've watched as of late and discuss how they'd remake this film, and who they'd cast and hire as director. Drop your blood-sokaed sponges, towel off, and take a listen.

Lee and Daniel take a trip deep underground to feast their eyes on "Death Line", AKA: "Raw Meat", from 1972, directed by Gary Sherman. Being a film that was buried for many years, the hosts dig into the deeper-than-expected social commentary and the brilliant performances, as well as the vivid gore & make up effects work. What the hosts have watched lately is also covered. Come on in and listen - just make sure you mind the doors!

Lee and Daniel tackle a film they don't think was made for white boys like themselves. This time out it's "Ganja & Hess" (1973), directed by Bill Gunn. Is this Black vampire film just a "Blackula" rip-off or is it so much more? Why was it not more of a box office success? How much Black donkey dick is in it? What do they think about using bathwater for something other than washing oneself? A listener comment is also covered.

The whole gang takes a look at a late Hammer Horror offering - one that was an attempt to breath some life into the quickly dying studio. The film in question is "Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter" (1974); a film that's not your usual Hammer production. Is it different enough? Is it any good? How does it compare to previous Hammer vampire films? Did Paul once hit on Caroline Munro in real life? Is this really just a test run for "Highlander II: The Quickening"? All this, as well as listener comments are covered.
