Two episodes of GME! Anime Fun Time in a row? Impossible! But it is the month of Halloween, and what better way to celebrate than with an anime filled to the brim with spooky skeletons? Join Ruth and I as we try to explain what kept us going through 13 episodes of Overlord, an anime that combines the worst elements of light-novel narrative structure with the worst elements of the “trapped in an MMORPG” science fiction subgenre. CLICK HERE or on the image above to download our review of the show.
Overlord does have some pretty boss character designs.

Let your freak flag fly, because Nightbreed is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the Bluray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring ‘Internet Terrorist’ Tom Pandich and Violence Jill.
Review in a Nutshell: Clive Barker is a weird dude and Canada is a strange place in this dark fantasy / supernatural romance that was originally miss-advertised as a slasher flick. The Director’s Cut of Nightbreed is a superior version of the film in nearly every respect, although Paul still has his reservations. See the film for its imaginative make-up effects and grim sense of humor.

You were expecting Crusher Joe, but it was me, Vampire Hunter D(io)!
Terrible meme humor aside, July is coming to a close and we’d be remiss if we didn’t offer up another quivering slab of Anime Fun Time. This time Tom and I take a look at Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, a slick albeit strange theatrical film from 2000. In a movie filled with vampires, torso-wolves, mechanical horses, steampunk tanks, and ghost lasers, can a fun time be far behind? Click on the movie title or the DVD cover above to find out!
Ghost vampires are like the worst kind of vampire.

Sharpen up your katana, because Versus is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film,
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.

Squeeze into your patent leather jumpsuit, because Planet of the Vampires is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film,
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.

Hold onto your precious essence, because Lifeforce is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring the UK’s own Ollie Bulmer.
Review in a Nutshell: Great special effects, droll British performances, and the lovely Mathilda May can’t prevent this troubled Golan / Globus production from being tugged in too many different directions at once. Is this the Greatest Movie EVER? Ollie and I disagree.
