They Must Be Destroyed On Sight!


TMBDOS! Episode 106: “City of the Living Dead” (1980) & “The Beyond” (1981).

October 9th, 2017


Lee and Paul kick off October by covering the other two parts of Lucio Fulci's so-called Gates of Hell Trilogy, "City of the Living Dead" (1980) & "The Beyond" (1981). Including-in "House by the Cemetery" (which was covered here on the podcast two years ago), is this really a trilogy? Which is the best film of the three? Do any of these films make any sense? The hosts drunkenly ponder these questions inbetween several cuts from Fabio Frizzi's amazing scores for the films. They also talk about what they've watched and purchased as of late, and cover a plethora of listener comments.

TMBDOS! Episode 103: “From Beyond” (1986).

August 21st, 2017


Back for more Lovecraft-inspired weirdness this week, Lee and Daniel jump headfirst into the kinky, goo-covered Stuart Gordon adaptation "From Beyond" (1986). There's lots of conversation about how effectively the film adapts and branches out from the original source material, and if it manages to effectively balance the BDSM elements and special effects with Lovecraft's central themes. Lovecraft's own fears and thoughts on race and sexuality are also briefly talked about. Aside from that, some opening talk about what the hosts have watched is also included.

Lee and Paul are here (but not really sober) this week to kick off a run of episodes looking at H. P. Lovecraft-inspired films. In this episode they check out the somewhat overlooked "Necronomicon" (1993). Does this horror anthology manage to live up to the lofty term "Lovecraftian"? Regardless, is it any good? Also covered: what they've watched as of late and/or purchased, and Paul SINGS for your entertainment. Yes, that's right.

Episode four of Blood on the Tracks takes a trip overseas to explore the land of Gialli, cannibals, Mario Bava, and Hollywood rip-offs. That's right, it's the vast landscape of Italian horror cinema. Lee found himself down another rabbit hole this month, making some difficult decisions on what did and did not manage to make the cut for the show. Put on some black gloves and a trenchcoat, badly dub your voice, and try not to impale your eyeballs on sharp objects.

July 10th, 2017


They Must Be Destroyed On Sight! has finally reached 100 official episodes! To celebrate, Lee, Daniel and the returning Paul take a gander at the George Romero classic "Night of the Living Dead" (1968). It's a full-on drunken commentary for the film. While they are not sure if they provided any original insights, the hosts at least had a lot of fun sitting back and chatting about the film. Also, before watching the film, they cover a couple of pieces of listener feedback and talk a bit about what they've most enjoyed about the first 100 episodes, and which were their favourites.

For your convenience, you have the option of either listening to the official 100th episode, or you can download the stand-alone commentary track here. Or, if so inclined, you can watch the commentary track put over an existing copy of the film on Youtube here.

TMBDOS! Episode 99: “Jackie Brown” (1997).

July 3rd, 2017


Lee and Daniel have finally made it to the end of the podcast's extended series on crime films with a massive episode on Quentin Tarantino's 1997 adaptation of Elmore Leonard's crime novel "Rum Punch". That's right, time to talk some Pam Grier in "Jackie Brown"! Is it QT's best film? Is it the best modern era crime film? Is this Grier's best work? Is Spike Lee an ass for being critical of the liberal use of the dreaded "N" word? All of this and much more is discussed at length, including a longer-than-usual talk about what they've watched as of late. Forgive them, as it's been a while since they've recorded together, so there was a lot of catching up to do.

Blood on the Tracks Episode 3: Heavy Metal Horror.

June 26th, 2017


It's the third episode of Blood on the Tracks, and this episode comes as a result of a poll Lee ran on the TMBDOS! Facebook page. The people voted for Heavy Metal Horror, so Lee went down a much deeper rabbit hole than he initially expected. Most of these tracks come from films that do feature heavy metal as part of the plot, but in some cases it's just films that are well-known for their metal soundtracks/scores. So make a devil sign; tell Gene Simmons to fuck off, because he doesn't own the rights to it; and come bang your head with Lee for an hour.

Note: Lee mentions that the film "Demons" (1985) contained a score from Claudio Simonetti using the Goblin name. This is an error: Simonetti is credited as himself for his work on that film.

TMBDOS! Episode 98: “Zodiac” (2007).

June 5th, 2017


Lee & Daniel are joined this week by the fantastic Mike Murphy of the Badasses, Boobs and Bodycounts podcast to talk about the 2007 David Fincher-directed "Zodiac". How accurate is it? Is it overrated? Does it work as a film as a whole? All these things and more are mulled over in this lengthy episode, including if the Zodiac was, in fact, Mike's dad. Also, Mike gets to play the Movie God Game, and the hosts talk about what they've watched as of late and respond to listener comments.

Castellari film, "The Heroin Busters" (1977). Much of the talk of the latter surrounds Fabio Testi's amazing wardrobe and how the British have sex. Also: does your motorcycle have airbags? You might wish it did after listening to this conversation. What they've watched as of late, and listener comments are also covered.
