The holidays are here and they’re going to the dogs (and also Dean Cain). That’s right, we’ve got two Dean Cain-and-dogs-and-Christmas-and-Santa movies coming up this month, and we’ve got two special guests to help us keep our sanity. In this mini episode, we reveal our special guest and the film for next week’s episode. We also have a lot of questions regarding whether the dog will talk.
Month of Thanks wraps up with Arctic Heart, a movie suggested by author (and our friend) Beau North that is way crazier than we initially gave it credit for. In this episode, we discuss insanely athletic sex acts, adorable fake penguins, UPS’s arctic delivery division, and much more.
Happy Thanksgiving! Month of Thanks rolls on with a suggestion from friend of the show Tyler Petty. He’s brought us a treat from Mexico that perfectly scratches that Twilight Zone itch. The Similars is at once horrifying, hilarious, and (as with previous Month of Thanks films Pin and Valerie and Her Week of Wonders) contains imagery that is sure to be seared upon our brains for some time to come.
In our most rambling episode to date, we discuss the 1970 Czechoslovakian surrealist cult classic Valerie and Her Week of Wonders. We can’t seem to make heads nor tails of this thing, but we’re not sure if it matters. All you need to know is that there are vampires, magic jewelry eating, and a 30 year old grandmother who’s painted white.
Many thanks to Caroline Fulford for recommending the film. Check out her excellent podcast The Loose Canon wherever you listen.
We kick off our Month of Thanks with recommendation from comic artist Felipe Sobreiro. Pin tells the story of an anatomical medical dummy and the boy who loves him, and it’s a whole lot of crazy. Topics of discussion include: Terry O’Quinn’s quiet intensity, one-side face-licking make-out sessions, Leon’s awful poetry, and the best boyfriend in movie history.
On this mini episode, we kick off our Month of Thanks! Throughout the month of November, we’re thanking you, the listener, by diving into our list of recommendations and picking four films that listeners have suggested for the show. That means four weeks of full-length episodes. Will we survive this? Let’s find out!
The last of our Halloween-centric episodes is here and we aren’t sure if this film is a trick or a treat. What do a porn director, Orson Welles, and the Log Lady from Twin Peaks all have in common? This movie! Josh also declares his choice of best Halloween snack, and much like Skinner’s choice last episode, it probably isn’t something you’d expect.
In this mini episode, we reveal next week’s film and then talk about some our most memorable Halloween tricks and treats.
Halloween Hell is less a movie and more a collection of scenes intercut with a guy in demon makeup punching at the screen. Also, Eric Roberts is here in Dracula cosplay. And… that’s about it. Enjoy?
We’re getting into the Halloween season by talking about horror movies (we’ve never done that before right?)! Actually, we talk more about “Halloweenifying” our names on twitter than we do about the movie we’re discussing next week.
