New York has got a brand new problem. No, not Ebola. Bedbugs. Seven foot tall bloodthirsty mutant super-intelligent bedbugs. They also sing. It’s BEDBUGS!!!…it’s a musical.
What’s Halloween without a visit to New York’s scariest haunted house? And this year they’re tackling the most terrifying thing of all….New York City itself. NIGHTMARE: NEW YORK CITY brings you face to face with everything that makes this city truly horrifying.
Halloween month continues as I am joined by the musically delicious and super-woofalicious HOMER MARRS to discuss the Cryptkeeper’s first big screen venture.
We also spend an obscene amount of time talking about stamps.
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
