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.

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.

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.
