After a Halloween break Lee returns for more Blood on the Tracks. This month Lee looks at the soundtracks and scores from films that are about films, film making, or at least are in some way connected to this theme. He had a lot to sort through to make a playlist, so there probably will be a part 2 down the road at some point.

This week Lee and Daniel are joined by Matt Simpsun, major domo of the Compañeros Radio Network, which features the great podcasts Movie Melt, Get Soft with Dr. Snuggles and Songs on Trial. Together they all take a one-way trip on the Devil's train as they talk about "Beyond the Door III" (AKA: "Amok Train") (1989). Italian rip-off films and the state of Italian genre films in the late 1980s; Bo Svenson as a satanist; creepy Eastern Europeans; strange virginity tests; Disney+; and boobies and gore on 1990s A&E; "Commando 2" & "Tango & Cash 2"; are just a few of the topics brought up in this conversation. Also, as Matt is making his first appearance on the show, he gets to play the MOVIE GOD GAME; listener comment are responded to; and the hosts all talk about what they've watched lately.

Lee and Daniel are back to talk about two films suggested by listener Jeff Williams, featuring sexy and dangerous females. First up it is the classic film noir "This Gun for Hire" (1942), and then they move on to talk about an interesting B-western, "Woman They Almost Lynched" (1953). Thinly veiled fetish material; proto-feminism; cat fights; Confederate soldiers portrayed as heroes in westerns of this era; and the recasting of a modern remake of "Woman..." are just a few of the things brought up, as well as listener comments.

Check out Lee's appearance on the latest episode of Movie Melt.

Lee, Daniel and returning guest host Jack finally finish off their look into Sherlock Holmes adaptations by looking at the Guy Ritchie-directed and Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law-starring "Sherlock Holmes" (2009) & "Sherlock Holmes: a Game of Shadows" (2011). This much more informal than usual chat goes in and out of talking about both films at the same time. Some of the topics covered include casting choices; the films going in hard on the ambiguously gay themes; Guy Ritchie's slow-mo and gimmicky look into Holmes' brain; Christopher Lee's hairpiece (yet again); and a joke Daniel and Jack share that almost breaks Daniel and just leave Lee confused. Also: a listener comment and a bit of a talk about "Mindhunter" on Netflix.
