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.

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.

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.

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.
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.

Things went to shit, so Lee and Daniel decided to record an intermission episode instead of the intended regular podcast. They respond to listener comments and talk about what they watched as of late. It's essentially the first part of a regular episode without following that up with an actual film review.

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.

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!

No regular episode this week, but Lee managed to work in an Intermission episode. What's he been doing, what's coming up on the podcast next, and what's on board for the month of October? All of this is covered as well as reviews of "Fracture" (2007), "Under the Shadow" (2016), and "Outland" (1981). There's also a brief mention of the death of Frank Vincent and a bit more talk about the death of Harry Dean Stanton.

As usual with these intermission episodes, the original plans fell through for an official episode, so here's a small fix for those who expect an episode every week. This time out friend of the show Kit Power has come through like a superstar to give you all a verbal beat-down of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" (2016), and then he has much more positive things to say about "The LEGO Batman Movie" (2017). Lee is also on this saying some things of less importance.

No regular episode this week, so Lee tries to come up with something to talk about in an intermission episode. Mostly it's just commercials and music. Can't win them all.

Fate has conspired against the regular podcasting plans this week so Lee is flying solo for an intermission episode. This week he shouts-out a podcast that mentioned TMBDOS! and goes over some of his recent DVD purchases. Then he looks at a list of upcoming horror films in 2017... and, well, he wasn't drunk enough to deal with it. Enjoy!

The second bit of bonus content for October 2016 contains a grab-bag of sorts. First off Lee provides a review of the short horror film "Lake Nowhere" (released 2016). Then guest reviewers James Murphy and Jack Graham chime in with some horror picks of their own to talk about.

Lee and Paul provide the first bit of bonus content for October 2016 with a casual chat about Lamberto Bava's "Demons" (1985) and "Demons 2" (1986). Although this is a listener request, take note that the usual level of research and prep work we do wasn't done here, as this is an intermission episode. Still, we think it's a pretty fun chat overall.

First up he looks at two sex comedies from the 1970s - "Guess What We Learned in School Today?" (1970) & "Jokes My Folks Never Told Me" (1978).
