Lee and Daniel find themselves knee-deep in the swamps of the American deep south this week as they tackle Walter Hill's "Southern Comfort" (1981). The conversation mostly is split into two parts, where the hosts try to give the film its fair shake as both a semi-survival horror/hicksploitation mash-up film, as well as a very obvious discussion about America's sins during the Vietnam war (even if Hill denies the latter up and down). Also covered: listener comments and what the hosts have watched as of late. Come swampin' wit' us, mon amis.

The podcast has made it to episode 200, and thus it goes back to cover the last film in George A. Romero's original "Dead" trilogy - the trilogy where its name and mascot originated. That's right, the hosts have decided to time travel ahead from where they currently are in their reviewing schedule, and cover 1985's "Day of the Dead". Long lost host Paul has returned! In addition to this, podcaster Ricky Morgan of The Hail Ming Power Hour, Short Bus Cinema, and a ton of other great podcasts sits in the guest host chair. Smart zombies; scenery chewing; compromised production budgets; mad scientists; predicting a pandemic crisis, and how people would actually react; who is cooking the food?; and the terrible remakes are all topics that are brought up. Listener comments are also covered. So why not waste your time in this audio monkey farm, eh, Frankenstein?

Lee and Daniel found themselves in the talkies by mistake this week, but that didn't stop them from watching and giving their thoughts on "In Old Arizona" (1928) & "The Virginian" (1929), which are two post-silent era pre-code Westerns with a hell of a lot in common both good and bad.Things brought up include brown-face and bad stereotypical accents; the genre tropes of love triangles and the schoolmarm taming the wild cowboy; strange tonal shifts; The Cisco Kid series that "In Old Arizona" spawned; great moments in these early films that are ignored by so-called film experts, and the value of said experts opinions; and how "The Virginian" is really just a prequel to a film we've already covered, also starring Gary Cooper. Also covered: listener comments and what Daniel has watched as of late.
