They Must Be Destroyed On Sight!


TMBDOS! Intermission #37: ”The Astounding She-Monster” (1957).

December 24th, 2021


Lee & Paul are back together to cover the Z-grade sci-fi film "The Astounding She-Monster" (1957), directed by Ronald V. Ashcroft. This semi-forgotten, low-budget shlock about a sexy radioactive space alien has some interesting aspects to it, including the possibility of the titular star, Shirley Kilpatrick, faking her death to make a better film career for herself as Shirley Stoler! Don't touch this podcast, just listen to it at a safe distance!

TMBDOS! Intermission #36: ”The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms” (1953).

December 14th, 2021


In this latest Intermission episode Lee and Leah are back together to talk about one of the first (if not the actual first) atomic monster films from the 1950s, "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms" (1953), directed by Eugène Lourié. Much of the conversation revolves around the fantastic Ray Harryhausen special effects work and if the rest of the movie manages to live up to that. How is this both not based on a Ray Bradbury story, but kind of is at the same time? What the hell is Lee Van Cleef doing here? Why does Leah's cat keep butting in on the recording? All this and more. Listen before the Rhedosaurus destroys the podcast like it was some lighthouse or a diving bell!

TMBDOS! Intermission #35: Vacation Watches.

March 22nd, 2021


Lee, Leah and Paul return for another Intermission episode to talk about the sequel to "The Abominable Dr. Phibes", "Dr. Phibes Rises Again" (1972). Find out how the hosts thought this bolder, bloodier, and much more campy sequel stacks up to the original.

TMBDOS! Intermission #30: “Multiple Maniacs” (1970).

February 22nd, 2021


Lee and Leah check out a film Leah suggested for the podcast - and a film that is a shameful blind spot in Lee's trash movie viewing - "Multiple Maniacs" (1970). It's John Waters' first talkie, and features the incomparable talents and screen presence of Divine. Is it too transgressive for its time? Is it too tame these days? Should it be embraced by the LGBTQ community despite some of the less PC content? What's a rosary job? Tune in to find out.

TMBDOS! Intermission #29: Lee and Paul’s Top 20 Slasher Films.

January 11th, 2021


Lee and Paul sat down in October of 2020 to talk about their top 20 slasher films, along with honourable mentions and the like. This is not up to our usual low standards. It sort of went off the rails at times, and the sound quality isn't great (which is why it took so long for Lee to release it). But hey, if you've got an hour and change to kill, this might do the trick.

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

TMBDOS! Intermission #28: “Blood Song” (1982) & “Mortuary” (1983).

October 16th, 2020


Lee and Paul got back together to record some bonus horror content for October. This time out they review the two slasher films "Blood Song" (1982) & "Mortuary" (1983). This one is off the cuff, mostly unedited, and a bit dog-eared, but the conversation is a fun one. Due to some recording issues the mic levels were not able to be properly balanced, so it's best to use ear buds. Sorry about that.

TMBDOS! Intermission #27: “Fuckin’ Up”.

June 15th, 2020


Lee and Daniel intended to record a regular episode on "Strange Days" (1995), but technology conspired against them long enough that they decided to give up and just record an intermission, where you'll get to hear a bit of their fumbling with tech live, and then they move into a very casual chat about some tv and movies they've been watching, among other things. It's essentially just what happens off-air when they record every week, so don't expect too much.

Featured Music: Excerpt from the score for "Confessions of a Sex Maniac" (1974) & "Fuckin' Up" by Neil Young.

TMBDOS! Intermission #26: “The Final Terror” (1983) & “Superstition” (1982).

May 10th, 2020


It's time for another intermission episode, as Lee is joined by Paul to talk about two somewhat obscure slasher films that spent a lot of time on the shelf before getting anything approaching a proper release. First up it's the killer-in-the-woods slasher "The Final Terror" (1983), featuring a lot of future stars, and then they check out the supernatural slasher "Superstition" (1982), featuring a bunch of people who went nowhere after their work on the film.

April 29th, 2019


Things went to shit, so Lee and Daniel decided to record an intermission episode instead of the intended regular podcast.

October 31st, 2017


Lee is back for Intermission #21. Originally he was going to review a couple of horror movies that everyone else and their dead relatives have already seen and talked about, but thinking better of it, instead he decided to take a look at upcoming horror releases for 2018, and give his off-the-cuff reactions to them. Then he ends off sorting through his horror film collection and giving 12 humble suggestions for double feature watches for this Halloween night.

October 15th, 2017


Lee and Paul are on board to provide the first bit of bonus content for October 2017. They take a look at the bloody slasher film "Nightmare" (AKA "Nightmares in a Damaged Brain") from 1981. Does this video nasty still have an impact? How does it rate alongside similiar films like "Maniac" and "Don't Go into the House"? Is it a piece of shit like Tom Savini claims, whenever he's denying his involement on the film? All of this and slightly more!
