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!
On today’s episode, we continue talking about 1982’s Deadly Games. We predict there has never been a more thoughtful or thorough discussion of this film by any other podcast or media outlet. We discuss the killer’s motive and why his identity needed to be a secret (it didn’t!), and wonder just how many people are boning each other in this town. But before we get into the discussion, Adam Roche from Attaboy Clarence and The Secret History of Hollywood drops by to help us set expectations the film can’t possibly meet.
In this episode, we begin our discussion on 1982’s Deadly Games, a film that, at first, appears to be a standard slasher, what with its wheezing, black-gloved killer and helpless victim, but with the addition of a very cheesy looking board game. Also, what role will football hall-of-famer Dick Butkus play in the film? There’s only one way to find out!
We’re back with our thoughts on the rest of Murder Weapon, a movie that is shockingly violent and shockingly inept in almost every way, but an absolute blast to watch (if you skip the interminable first 20 minutes). The kills are insane, the villain apparently has super strength, and the guys are dumb as rocks. This movie took our expectations and smashed them to smithereens with a sledge hammer. We are absolutely giddy with excitement over this thing. Enjoy!
In our first proper episode of Season 2, we wrestle with Murder Weapon, a seriously sleazy 1989 movie that is about… something? From these first 10 minutes, we’re actually not sure what it’s about. Maybe vampires? Split personalities perhaps? We make our predictions and prepare ourselves for what’s to come. The only way you’ll know for sure what we’ve gotten ourselves into is to come back on Thursday when we discuss the rest of the film in Part 2.
Josh and Skinner are still off sipping mai tais on the snowy slopes so Daniel and Claude from The Canon Ball podcast saunter in to cover the trippy cult classic Liquid Sky.
Content warning: the movie has some rough moments, including sexual assualt, and it is discussed in the episode, though briefly and in no detail.
