We’re heading to the Yuppie-filled beach in this week’s episode on the 1987 supernatural comedy Hunk. Just how hunky is this hunk? Why is the devil a time traveller? What exactly IS included in the Yuppie Program? Some of these questions will be answered!
We gamed the system a little bit for next week’s movie, the selling-my-soul-to-the-devil-to-be hot comedy Hunk, but I can guarantee it won’t reach the dizzying heights we predict it will in today’s mini episode.
We continue our summer series of supernatural comedies with the aptly-named My Mom’s A Werewolf. This movie’s got it all: cheap-looking werewolves, John Saxon being a creep, a visit to a very weird dentist, and a man with the excellent name Lou Lamont (or does it?).
We keep rolling right along with the Summer Spooktacular (or whatever it is we’re calling it) by revealing our next film: My Mom’s a Werewolf. This title is so obvious, it’ll probably zig when we expect to zag and have no werewolves at all!
We finally tackle a Steve Guttenberg film as we continue our unintentional Silly Summer Spook-A-Thon (or whatever we’re calling this) with 1988’s horror comedy High Spirits. Why isn’t Beverly D’Angelo attracted to Steve Guttenberg? Why is Daryl Hannah so attracted to Steve Guttenberg? Just how tall is Liam Neeson? Why is that horse talking? Was Peter O’Toole really drunk all the time? Will we answer any of these questions? You’ll have to listen in to find out.
In this mini episode, we come up with a much better movie than High Spirits could ever be. If this movie is not about stoned ghosts, then what are we even doing with our lives?
In our most musical episode to date, we sink our fangs into the super goofy horror/musical comedy Rockula, wherein there are good songs, bad songs, and absolutely AWFUL songs. Plus: our hero has a sassy reflection, the ability to turn into a walking fart, and a band with Bo Diddley. We also invent an absolutely killer song about monsters mashing things.
In this mini episode, we break down the title of our next film and try to figure out what it could be. Rockula sounds pretty awesome on its face: a cool rock ‘n roll vampire, but can it match the awesomeness of our pitch? Tune in next week to find out for sure!
This movie was suggested by friend of the show Spencer Seams (who co-hosts Akira Kurosawa podcast High & Low) and boy oh boy, it is not good. Still, there are good goofs within this episode and a special appearance by Skinner’s daughter, who is just the best. You should listen for her commentary alone.
Friend of the show Spencer (cohost of the Akira Kurosawa podcast High & Low) suggested this film to us, so here we are. Will this be another smashing success like previous listener-suggested Turkey Shoot or another disappointing mess like the animal-themed Army Dog or Bunnyman Massacre (turns out we’ve done a ton of movies with animals in the title)? Only one way to find out…
