Madman (1981)
Rusty and I talk about the painfully slow-paced, 80s slasher, Madman. Why are camp cooks so dirty? Why does everyone insist on splitting up? Where does Madman Marz get his nails done? We try to answer these questions as well as argue about Christopher Nolan.

The Peanut Butter Solution
Molly’s back! Try to keep up with us as we go over one of our childhood favorites. It’s the familiar story of a boy who regrows his hair with a peanut butter solution, a recipe he receives from ghosts. He then gets kidnapped by his art teacher who harvests his hair in order to manufacture paintbrushes that create magical paintings people can walk into...y’know, the usual. Trippin’ balls Skippy style.
