We would like, if we may, to take you on a strange journey through all things Rocky Horror to close out the Halloween season. We discuss the original stage show, the 1975 classic film, it’s cult legacy and influence on us, then close things out with a discussion on the recent misguided remake.
Our month long Halloween celebration continues with a love letter to horror’s number one Mistress, Elvira, in honor of her 35th anniversary! We’re joined once again by the biggest Elvira fan we know, Alex Dakoulas of strange-ways.com, to talk about her Movie Macabre beginnings, cultural impact, feature film ventures, huge gay following, and everything else related to the incomparable Mistress of the Dark! Also, we grab the Queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race by the pussy, and dish about the second episode of the trashiest reality TV show this side of Teen Mom, The Presidential Debate.
October is upon us, and we kick off a month of all things mad and macabre with our favorite Halloween themed movies and TV specials from our childhoods, before delving into a feature love fest of Hocus Pocus! But first, we spill the tea about RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, Christian Slater seducing a Disney star, and the trash reality TV show that was the Presidential Debate.
We’ve seen Rob Zombie’s new film, 31, and go through his entire filmography, touching on how we feel about him as a filmmaker, and how we would rank Sheri Moon Zombie’s performances in all of them. Then we delve into longer, spoiler filled thoughts on our fav of his movies, The Lords of Salem, as well as our immediate thoughts on 31. Also discussed, Lena Dunham in a tuxedo, a trans Matt Bomer, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 2, and Don’t Breathe
Pack your bags, kiddies, because we’re heading to summer camp! This week, we get a surprisingly effective look into female sexuality as we resurrect 1980’s long lost coming of age dramedy, Little Darlings, then go full love fest and quote happy as we discover what salty pancake batter tastes like in Daniel Waters brilliantly subversive and unfairly rarely seen gem, Happy Campers! Also discussed, Winona Ryder’s triumphant return in Stranger Things, and Spencer’s discovery of the trash classic, Mama’s Dirty Girls!
Celebrate the 4th of July by revisiting our infamous Jaws Retrospective episode! We took a trip to the drive-in to watch the original masterpiece, then unabashedly gushed over why we love all three controversial sequels!
Last time, Spencer and John took you to the prom. This week, they’re heading to the high school reunion! No, we’re not arguing over who’s the Mary and who’s the Rhoda, but we did have another VHS inspired slasher double feature with 1978’s The Redeemer: Son of Satan and 1986’s Slaughter High! Also discussed, the latest queer-centric headlines, J.Lo’s erotic mess-terpiece , The Boy Next Door, and the darkly satirical merits of The Neon Demon.
Teenage fornications are in the spring air, and we have a burning hot date with Hamilton High’s head bitch in charge, Mary Lou Maloney! Join us as we score a home run with Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night 2, then question why the second date wasn’t as satisfying with Prom Night 3: The Last Kiss.
