As part of Larry Cohen Month, we’re unlocking our Patreon episode on the Larry Cohen-directed Eric Roberts-starring The Ambulance. This movie is an absolute blast! Things we love: James Earl Jones’s simmering hatred of Eric Roberts. Red Buttons’s over-the-top newspaperman. Stan Lee as himself. Random street toughs. Bulletproof ambulance. Seriously, this movie is everything we wanted.

Larry Cohen Month continues in this mini episode, where we reveal the next possibly movie-centric movie we’re covering on the show, plus we come up with a great, not-at-all-hard to say name for your garage band.
On today’s episode, we finally unravel the mystery at the center of Deadly Illusion, and folks… it makes no sense at all. It’s one of the most unnecessarily convoluted plots in cinema history, but honestly it doesn’t matter because there’s a scythe fight, a helicopter opening fire on a posh restaurant, and two men fighting inside a Christmas tree. Plus Billy Dee Williams strutting around in a blazer with no shirt. This movie gave us a thrill like so few do. This one is a real dumb gem.
We kick off Larry Cohen Month by bringing along Billy Dee Williams to explore a Deadly Illusion. Hamberger (don’t make fun of his name, okay?) is a crack-shot private investigator who is hired to kill a man’s wife. Since things aren’t always as they seem in a Larry Cohen movie, what’s really going on? Do the rich folks live on Plum Island? Will they solve the JFK Assassination in this movie? Will Hamberger deflect a killing blow with a head of lettuce. We’ll know for sure in Part 2 on Thursday.
On this week’s mini episode, we launch our newest theme month, celebrating a filmmaker we love around these parts: Larry Cohen!
In this clip from our Patreon-exclusive trip to Pup Academy, we talk a lot more about toilet travel because of course we do.

We’re taking the week off to but we didn’t want to leave you without an episode so we’re opening up the Patreon vault and releasing our episode on the oddity that is Dangerous Men, originally released on December 26, 2018. We’ll be back next week with a mini episode setting up an exciting theme month for July. See you then!
In this clip from our Patreon-exclusive episode on the Brian Bosworth biker gang action classic Stone Cold, we discuss the racist biker gang’s plan and how even if they are successful (they are), they’ll be dead by the end of the day (they are).
We recorded a commentary track for the opening scene of Stone Cold! Check it out on our YouTube channel!

This week on the show, we’re joined by Dan McCoy, cohost of the Maximum Fun podcast The Flop House, to discuss 1973’s Lady Ice!
Dan is back to discuss the rest of the film, and we are just unexplainably laughing uproariously. Along the way we discuss the somewhat convoluted plot, George Lucas’s almost involvement in the film, and some of Donald Sutherland’s intimidation tactics.
