Episode 115: SUMMER OF FEAR (1978)

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”.

Episode 111: DEADLY FRIEND with Twisted Kid Radio

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.

PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK (1975)

On Valentine’s Day, 1900, a group of students from an exclusive girls’ college have a picnic at the titled rock in the Australian bush country.
Things turn tragic when three students and a teacher go exploring the upper regions of the cliffs and simply vanish without a trace.
Forever.

Episode 109: CREATURES FROM THE PINK LAGOON

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.
