Lee, Leah, and special guest Vaughn Kuhlmeier of the excellent podcast Motion Picture Massacre attempt to slay the dragon that is Terry Gilliam's Monty Python-adjacent film "Jabberwocky" (1977). Not loved at its time of release, is this still a critical failure, or has its politics and social messages aged much better over the years? Is it funny? What did they get away with while still rated PG? Why is Steven Spielberg a fucking hack? Also: the hosts talk about what they have watched recently, and Vaughn plays a harrowing round of the Movie God Game! So take up your lances and charge at the monster with us!
Check out Vaughn's podcast here.
Featured Music: "The Bankquet Pt.3 (Brandle De Brourgogne)" by Spencer Nakin & "Les Damnes" by Pierre Arvay.

Lee, Leah, and the returning Daniel hang-out in the desert to get drunk and talk about giant ants, that are bent on spreading communism across the world. Or something. Yes, it's the Gordon Douglas-directed, 1954 atomic age monster movie classic "Them!". We talk about the thinly veiled themes in the film; the agency of female scientists in a 1950s sci-fi horror; educational films about ants; government, military, and local authorities actually working together like they should to solve issues; and way too much about formic acid. Leah and Daniel also talk about what they've watched as of late.
Featured Music: "Main Title" & "Military Takes Over; Through The Tunnels" by Bronislau Kaper.

Lee and Leah are back this episode to talk about Guillermo del Toro's fantasy/horror/anti fascist film set in the post-Spanish Civil War era, "Pan's Labyrinth" (2006). Most of the talk revolves around what is or isn't real in the film and the central themes, as well as the amazing special effects and visuals. You might say the hosts really Faun over this one. Thank you, we're here all week. Try the veal. The hosts also cover what they've watched as of late.

Featured Music: "Long, Long Time Ago" by Javier Navarrete; "Dance of the Satyrs" by Deamonia Nymphe; and "En los Jardines de Granada" by Rafael Medina.
