It’s off to the Catacombs of Paris to decipher what the title AS ABOVE SO BELOW is supposed to friggin’ mean. And then, THE NIGHTMARE CLOSET creaks open to reveal bugs. Lots and lots of bugs. And a monkey. Also, quickie reviews of ALYCE KILLS and ANTISOCIAL, a tribute to JOAN RIVERS and the music of THE LINE-UP/THE SOULFUL.
It seems fitting that I mark the end of the season with WES CRAVEN and LINDA BLAIR’s made-for-TV terror treat, SUMMER OF FEAR (aka “Stranger in Our House”).
Black magic, bad perms and implied incest abound in what was presenting to the unsuspecting public as “suitable family entertainment”.
Only because I am forced to my sense of duty (and near-crippling Catholic guilt), here it is. The bottom of the barrel. The movie where even the title is a bald faced lie. Special guest: MICHAEL KEYLOUN
I’m sitting down with JAY EMMITT and MATT from TWISTED KID RADIO to talk about WES CRAVEN‘s teenage non-sexbot cautionary tale, DEADLY FRIEND. This is actually from their episode, but I’m sharing it here with you along with the sordid details of my voyage of international embarrassment.

I am joined this week by director/writer/man of woofiness SHAWN EWERT to talk about the deliciously fluffy puff pastry of retro campy queeny zombie mayhem known as CREATURES FROM THE PINK LAGOON! While bathing suits are optional at this sexy summer lake house, insect repellent is STRONGLY recommended.
