The whole gang is back together this week as Lee, Dan and Paul talk about two more slasher films from the 1980s for our Slasher Series. This time out it's two films considered to be legit cult classics by most slasher fans in "Sleepaway Camp" (1983) & "The Burning" (1981). Are they overlooked classics or just over-hyped?  Also covered: listener comments and what we've been watching as of late.

This week Lee, Daniel and Paul kick off a series on 1980s slasher films by checking out the somewhat urban legend-based "Madman" (1982), and then on to the effects-driven "The Prowler" (1981). Due to some tech issues, Paul had to record a separate discussion with Lee on a different night, and he was without a good mic, thus his sound is a bit lower. People using ear buds be aware and adjust accordingly. Also: Daniel returns with another list of both recommended books and films, this time dealing with the subject of artificial intelligence. They also cover what they've watched as of late.


Featured Music: "Song of Madman Marz" by Gary Sales.

Lee and Daniel are back and this time Daniel has picked both movies reviewed for this episode. First off they look at a little Euro sex in "The Libertine" (1960) and then they move on to a strange pseudo-doc surrounding the people involved in a 1980s computer chess competition in (you guessed it) 2013's "Computer Chess".

Also: listener comments, what we've been watching, and a list of recommended films/documentaries to help one better understand the religious right in America.

Featured Music: "Brute Calculations" by Morgan Coy.
