Not to be confused with ‘Strange Circus’.

featuring Franklin Raines of Children of the Blazing Fist.

Review in a Nutshell: Trashy, exploitative, surreal, humorous, grotesque…all of these words and more apply to Alejandro Jodorowsky’s most accessible film, Santa Sangre, a tale of murderous Oedipal urges, religious cults, dismemberment, insanity, and the circus. Quite simply, this is an amazing and beautiful film.

Dead Teenagers. IN SPACE!

Sharpen up your katana, because Versus is the Greatest Movie EVER!

featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting and Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder.

Review in a Nutshell: Frenetic, funny, and action-packed, Versus is a genre-bending action / horror / Yakuza picture with a mystic twist. It’s an independent movie with a small budget and a big heart.

to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Oli Bulmer.

Review in a Nutshell: A dark fantasy Spanish / Italian / Mexican co-production that cribs liberally from such films as Conan the Barbarian, Clan of the Cave Bear, Clash of the Titans, and Beastmaster, Conquest is long on smoke machines and short on plot. Expect wolf men, cave men, swamp mummies, and bows that shoot lasers. It’s a very strange film which I think everyone should watch, because Lucio Fulci is a weird dude.

It Creeps, and Leaps, and Glides, and Slides…

Tune up your hot rod, because The Blob (1958) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: The quintessential killer ooze movie, The Blob (1958) combines “youth at risk” pictures with high concept science fiction to create a film that is still fun to watch over 50 years since its initial release.

Once Again, Space Vampires. Maybe.

Squeeze into your patent leather jumpsuit, because Planet of the Vampires is the Greatest Movie EVER!

featuring Jeremy of Destroy All Podcasts DX.

Review in a Nutshell: A pulpy science fiction / horror film made on no budget whatsoever, Planet of the Vampires nevertheless succeeds because of Mario Bava’s invasive cinematography, the weird aesthetics, and the clever twist. The film conveys a strong sense of tension throughout.

“BOOOOOOOOOOOOY!”

Break out the impromptu guitar jam sessions, because Phantasm is the Greatest Movie EVER!

featuring Tom Pandich of Tomics! by Tom!!! and the Alter Ego’s podcast.

Review in a Nutshell: Phantasm is a shining example of that rarest breed of horror film – the horror movie that functions on a symbolic level. Strange, dream-like, and surreal, it’s a movie that constantly challenges the viewers’ expectations.

FINAL THOUGHT:
