Kill Streak is a weekly podcast where we pick a horror movie franchise, and then every episode covers an entry in that series. We talk about the making of the movie, behind the scene stories, recap the plot, and then rate it using our patented Kill Streak criteria. Finally, we rank each movie in the series in our canonical order from worst to best.
Brought to you by filmmakers, friendz, and horror dudez Eric Gosselin and Mike Price.

68. Beyond Re-Animator (2003)
We close out the Re-Animator series with the largely overlooked direct-to-video/cable stepchild, "Beyond Re-Animator." If nothing else, it's a solid title!

67. Bride of Re-Animator (1990)
This week on the pod, it's the Brian Yuzna directed, Mary Shelley inspired sequel "Bride of Re-Animator." It's got more gore, more chintzy synthesizers, and Alotta Fagina! But does it justify its existence as a sequel to one of the all time horror greats? Listen to find out. Then in the end segment, Mike and Eric introduce an exciting new feature where they get in touch with their inner high school horror geeks!
June 01, 2021
66. Re-Animator (1985)
Paging Dr. Herbert West. The bangers keep coming! The guys breakdown one of their all-time favs, the 1985 gore-soaked black comedy RE-ANIMATOR!

Then we rank the whole series from worst to best. Stay tuned to the end to hear the next series we'll be covering!
May 17, 2021
64. Phantasm: Ravager (2016)
This week on the pod, it's the final installment of the Phantasm franchise and BOYYYYYY is it a hot mess! This labor of love with an odd origin story marks the final screen appearance of the late, great Angus Scrimm. Give us a listen as we try to make any kind of sense of the unhinged plot, and then stay tuned for the much anticipated return of COLON EXAM after the movie.
May 10, 2021
63. Phantasm IV: Oblivion (1998)
This week on the pod, it's the penultimate Phantasm film, coming a cool 19 years after the release of the original! It's a big jump into the future, but this film also spends a lot of its time dwelling on the past. Does it make for a perfect blend of old and new, or tonal mishmash of '79 and '98? Listen to find out! And then stick around after as Eric's basement gets crowded in the special-est of special final segments!!!
May 03, 2021
62. Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead (1994)
Things get a little goofy on this episode (recorded on 4/20, maaaannn!) and in this film, as the Phantasm series takes a turn for the tongue-in-cheek. So how does this entry stack up against its brethren? You'll have to listen to find out. Then after the flick, we unleash upon the world a particularly profound edition of "Mt. Rushgore!!!"
April 26, 2021
61. Phantasm II (1988)
What do you think happens to you when YOU die? Hopefully, you come to us so we can joke around and watch horror movies together. But more likely, you'll end up in the clutches of the Tall Man! This week, we dive into the long-awaited sequel to Phantasm, with all the Gravers, Lurkers, gold sentinels, and forehead foreplay scenes you can handle! We've got some great behind the scenes stories and plenty of hot and spicy takes to interfere with your GI system. Then, after the movie, we get REAL goofy with our newest segment, "Recastaway!" This one is car themed for all the gearheads out there. I know that sounds confusing and it is. But you should REALLY listen to it if you're in the mood for a laugh.
April 19, 2021
60. Phantasm (1979)
The BOOOOOOOYS get loose with this twisty-turny horror/sci-fi classic! Don Coscarelli's first foray into horror movies is a lot of things, but straightforward it ain't. It looks great, it sounds great, it oozes charm and creativity, and it's weird AF. What's not to love? After much confusion and a false start, Mike takes on recap duties. It's thorough. Mike is a very thorough man.
April 13, 2021
59. Alien Wrap-Up and Rankings
AND WE'VE COOOOME, TO THE END...OF...THE ROOOAD. That's Boyz II Men. Look it up zoomers. ANYWAYS, we've come to the end of the road on the Alien franchise and it's time to hand out some statues!! On this ep, we give out some coveted awards like: Best/Worst Lead and Supporting Actor; Worst Vacation Destination; Best Xenomorph Variant; and the Peter North Award for Android Gore!! Those and many more, plus the moment you've all been waiting for: our canonical rankings of the Alien series! Then stay tuned for the announcement of the next series we'll be covering.
April 08, 2021
58. Alien: Covenant (2017)
This week we cover the final (for now?!?!?!) entry in the Alien franchise, the "Alien" prequel/"Prometheus" sequel "Alien: Covenant." For all you android horndogs out there, you get double your Fassbender in this one. Plus some answers to the big questions about vases full of black goo but not so many answers about the big questions of life. Then after the flick, meet our newest end segment baby, "The Rip Off Tip Off" which definitely goes off without a hitch! Seriously though, give it a listen, it's a special kind of mess.
April 05, 2021
57. Prometheus (2012)
Ok, let's get something clear right out of the gate: we know Noomi Rapace rhymes with "gloomy the boss" AND that it's Logan MARSHALL-Green, not Logan MICHAEL-Green. OK?! Don't @ us. Alright, glad we got that out of the way. This week on the pod, it's "Prometheus," which prompts some of life's big existential questions, like why in the hell would a biologist take his helmet off after 20 minutes on the surface of a foreign planet and then try to pet an alien penis snake that's clearly displaying a defensive posture? Also, we shook things up this week, Eric handles the production deep-dive and Price is doing the recap (which it turns out can get long pretty easily when you don't know what you're doing). Then in the end segment, we have a little speech-jamming fun with some great horror monologues. Give it a listen and don't forget to always RUN PERPENDICULAR TO THE GIANT THING BARRELING TOWARDS YOU!
March 29, 2021
56. Alien Resurrection (1997)
"France, we come from France!" Just like SNL's beloved "Coneheads," this week's feature serves up its extraterrestrials on a crunchy baguette with a side of creamy Brie cheese as acclaimed French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet takes the reins of the Alien franchise. We dive in with somewhat differing opinions on what works and what doesn't in this AGGRESSIVELY late 90's film written by famous Hollywood persona non grata Joss Whedon. One thing we can all agree on: someone has some mommy stuff going on! Then after the recap we welcome back the voice of Kill Streak, one Ryan Martin, for a rollercoaster of an Alien quiz.
March 22, 2021
55. Alien 3 (1992)
Tune in this week to hear our hot takes on one of the most infamous director vs. studio shitshows in all of horrordom, "Alien 3." Is this the worst Alien movie? Probably not! Is this the worst Fincher movie? The answer to that probably depends on your stomach for Brad Pitt as an old man baby hijinks! Is this a weird, fucked up, interesting to think and talk about movie? Definitely! After our breakdown, stick around to hear about the brand new "Kill Streak Hall of Shame," and how you can help decide who gets inducted!
March 16, 2021
54. Aliens (1986)
"This time, it's plural." With this unforgettable catchphrase, James Cameron and his collaborators gave birth to the archetypal action blockbuster, and paved the way forward for the highest grossing horror franchise of all time. Does "Aliens" still hold up 35 years later? Yes, duh, of course it does. Listen along with us and we take you behind the scenes of the biggest sci-fi/horror/action extravaganza ever made, as well as into the dark recesses of Eric's perverted mind. Then after the movie, we do a quick "Chop Quiz" of the 10 highest grossing horror series, Family Feud-style. EDIT: Apparently the film's catchphrase is actually: "This time, it's war." Everything else still stands though.
March 08, 2021
53. Alien (1979)
"Alien." It's a noun. It's an adjective. It's horror. It's sci-fi. It's a cinematic masterpiece. And it's this week's movie on the ol' Kill Streak pod, baybeeee! This is one of the only seventeen or eighteen places to hear two unapologetic fanboys worship at the altar of Scott, Giger, and O'Bannon. Which could also be a really gnarly law firm, come to think of it. Coincidence? Only one way to find out...YOU GOTTA LISTEN!
March 01, 2021
52. Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994)
Alright, alright, alright. This week, we (Price and Eric aka Mick and Dick Ghoulie aka The Ghoulie Bros.) set our sights on the much derided "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation." Is this movie a steaming pile of head cheese? There’s no way to know without hearing our very special opinions!! Then stay tuned for the final segment where we wrap up the series by doling out our superlatives and ranking all 4 TCM movies. Last but not least, listen to hear the next blockbuster series we’ll be covering!
February 23, 2021
51. Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990)
"Look at me, I'm Leatherface!" - Idle Hands, 1999 Twenty four years after the release of the iconic original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, New Line got their hands on the franchise license and decided to take a crack at turning power tool enthusiast Leatherface into the next Freddy Krueger. Did this gambit pay off with a slice of prime horror mayhem and a critical and box-office revival? Or did it result in naught but a pile of scrap meat, destined for canned army rations and the Purina factory? There are only two ways to find out: listening to the pod, or a cursory Google search. But only one of those options will also allow you to hear Eric's anxieties about his mortician friend seeing his dick after he dies! After the movie discussion, we also do a rousing Top 5 of "Favorite Horror Movie Murder Weapons!!" Give it a listen!
February 15, 2021
50. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986)
This week we cover a sequel 12 years in the making...maybe another 12 years would've done the trick? This one was much-maligned at the time of its release, but recently has started to receive some praise. Does it deserve a reevaluation? Listen in and find out what we think. Then after our frank, hard-hitting discussion, we unveil a brand spanking new segment called "The Meta Critics," wherein we take a look at other sequels that have marked tonal shifts.
February 08, 2021
49. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
It's gritty. It's gruesome. It's one of the all-time greats. This week, we fawn over "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre." We talk about what makes it so great, and why no one should make a movie like this again. Price also misidentifies the film as being "almost 40 years old" multiple times because he still wants to believe it's the aughts and he's in his 20s. Also, some great listener questions and comments, and after the movie, "Staff Picks: Dead by Dawn."
February 02, 2021
48. Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)
Our big January Drac-Off comes to a close this week with famed director Francis Ford Coppola's wild gothic romance of the early 90's. If you're not horny for Gary Oldman yet, you will be by the time you finish this movie. This one is a blast and we had a real fun time talking about it. But that's not all this jam-packed episode has to offer! We decided to plow right ahead and do our Drac-Off rankings and superlatives as well, so look for that after the movie to find out who won such coveted awards as "Best Fainting Woman" and "Biggest Cuck" in the Dracula-verse! Then, finally, we announce the series we'll be covering in February, and it's a doozy!
January 25, 2021
47. Dracula (1979)
THE JANUARY DRAC-OFF CONTINUES! Eric may be recovering from COVID-19, but that's not going to stop us from going deep on DRACULA (1979) aka The Cucking of Jonathan Harker! How does this steamy version stack up against the previous 3 entries? Grab the armrests of your chair and listen as these two naughty boys go to town on everything you hold ear. Plus they play a vampire-centric Chop Quiz. Make sure to stay for that.
January 23, 2021
A Brief Announcement
Eric is sick! Today's episode is delayed. Pray for Mojo!
January 18, 2021
46. Horror of Dracula (1958)
Round 2 of the January Drac-Off begins as we get introduced to the sexy, imposing British-ness of Hammer's "Horror of Dracula." It's 27 years later and this time, you know they're gonna show some fangs! Also in this episode, Eric tries a new, more aerodynamic approach to the recap section. Plus, Count Dooku battles Grand Moff Tarkin! Listen to the full episode to find out what other treasures this full color classic holds. Then afterwards, stick around for the new segment "BB Fucking C" to play a quick round of UK censorship trivia.
January 12, 2021
45. Dracula (1931)
We jump into our January Drac-Off with the granddaddy of all the celluloid Draculas...Universal's 1931 classic (?) "Dracula" starring Bela Lugosi. You know it's famous, but the real question is, "is it good?" You know how to find out: listen to the pod!! We are podcasting children of the night, and oh what music we make! After the movie, we play a round of "Bela Lugosi's Dead," a segment that definitely WASN'T conceived name-first, then working backwards from there.
January 04, 2021
44. Rare Exports (2010)
On this very special holiday episode, Finnish Santa Claus is here to decide who's naughty, who's nice, and who deserves a pickaxe to the head! Whatever you do, don't call him Krampus, because that's Central Europe, you uncultured yokel. Tune in to hear all about this fun little Nordic yarn, as well as an update on Eric's budding love affair with his catfisher. Then after the movie, we toss back a few nogs and reminisce about the "scariest moments in non-horror holiday films." And finally, stick around til the very end for an exciting announcement about what we'll be covering in the new year. Happy holidays to all you Kill Streakers out there!
December 21, 2020
43. Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver
Gingerdead Man might be the perfect COVID series, because having to watch these movies is not dissimilar to having to suffer through the discomfort and offense of this year's pandemic. BUT! This episode was fun to record. Much more fun than the process of watching these movies. And stick around for after the movie, because we've got a...TWIST ENDING! Happy holidays, Kill Streakers!
December 14, 2020
42. Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust (2008)
The Gingerdead Man series is...still bad! But sometimes bad movies are the most fun to talk about. Is that the case with this week's episode? Only one way to find out: listen in! After the movie, we attempt to right some wrongs with some Staff Picks, where we run down some better options if you're looking for a horror movie about filmmaking.
December 07, 2020
41. The Gingerdead Man (2005)
Alright everybody, here at Kill Streak we're big enough to admit our mistakes, and listen, we fucked up. It turns out this isn't a holiday themed movie, AT ALL, and in fact it is barely a movie, period. "The Gingerdead Man" is in fact an exercise in doing the absolute bare minimum required to skate by. But that's not what we here at Kill Streak HQ are gonna do. No ma'am! We gave this episode our full effort and by god, we reviewed this film fully and with the discerning critical eye that we bring to each and every show we do. And then, after that, Eric introduced a new segment called "Wet Hot Busey Hounds" that is not as gross as it sounds. Please enjoy this non-holiday themed trash fire.
November 30, 2020
40. Evil Dead Wrap-Up and Rankings
On this special Turkey/Colonizers Day episode, we put a nice little bow on the Evil Dead franchise! Tune in first for a quick segment on the Starz series "Ash vs. Evil Dead." Then we dish out our customary franchise superlatives, including such hits as "Best Ash One-Liners" and "Most Satisfying Kills!" Then, of course, we rank the series in both our personal orders and the CANONICAL Kill Streak order. And finally, we reveal our winter holiday-themed franchise, and damn it smells delicious!
November 26, 2020
39. Evil Dead (2013)
This week on the pod, the Kill Streak boys are doling out some HOT takes! In this century, horror remakes are a dime a dozen but they're usually worth less than that. Does the Tapert/Raimi/Campbell produced remake/reboot of the Evil Dead series rise above its brethren? Or does this relentless gorefest belong in the depths of hell with the rest of its hot trash cousins? The only way to find out is to listen to this episode or to politely ask someone else who has! Then after the movie, we introduce a new segment honoring some of the least essential films in the horror canon. It's a must-listen!
November 23, 2020
38. Army of Darkness (1993)
What a wild one this is, Kill Streakers! This week we unpack the final installment of the original Evil Dead trilogy and answer some of the big questions on everyone's minds, starting with "who keeps packing up these movies?!" This was a beloved teen classic for us, so listen in to find out if it still holds up in the eyes of these jaded old men. Then after the movie, we do a little "Scored to Death: Danny Elfman Edition!" with the voice of Kill Streak, Mr. Ryan Martin himself.
November 16, 2020
37. Evil Dead II (1987)
What do you get when you take the creators of one of the best indie horror movies ever, give them ten times the budget to make a sequel, and set them loose in the woods of North Carolina? If you guessed one of the single greatest horror comedies of all time, you guessed right! And this week on Kill Streak, we dive DEEP into the making of "Evil Dead II" and all the thrills, chills, and Bruce Campbell spills that happen along the way. Then in our late segment, we lovingly carve a Mt. Rushgore of Horror Hunks out of the hardest of rock.
November 09, 2020
36. The Evil Dead (1981)
Now that Halloween season is over, it's finally time to start covering well-known, well-liked horror movies again! This week, we cover one of the greatest indie horror successes of all time, the one, the only, THE EVIL DEAD! Listen along as we gush about the profound impact this movie had on horror, low-budget filmmaking, and little Mike and Eric! Then, stick around for a particularly MATURE end segment...
November 02, 2020
35. The Ward (2010)
We've reached the big finale of John Carpent-ober with our hero's latest (but probably not greatest) directorial effort. Sure, it's got a 33% on Rotten Tomatoes, but is it really that bad? You'll have to listen along to find out. One thing is for sure, it definitely came out at the height of popularity for "Mad Men"! After the movie, we indulge our inner trick-or-treaters and taste test some of last week's top candy picks. Listen as we put our money where our mouths are by putting a lot of chocolate and peanut butter where are mouths are, also. AND THEN, listen at the very end to find out what November's series is going to be...IT'S A BIG ONE!
October 26, 2020

October 22, 2020
34. Village of the Damned (1995)
John Carpent-ober marches on with "Village of the Damned," a remake of the 1960 film of same name. Neither of us had ever seen this one, because we heard it sucked!

Then, stick around for the end segment where we rank the Top 5 Halloween Candies to find in your little plastic pumpkin. It's a sweet treat you absolutely WILL NOT want to miss.
October 19, 2020

In our second live commentary of October (the most haunting of months!) we hang out with the hilarious and loveable Carol Fahey and Josh Briggs of the Mummy x Deaddy Podcast. Watch along with us as we take a chest-mounted lawnmower to the Kiwi horror classic "Dead Alive," or as it is known in the rest of the world, "Braindead." Which, coincidentally, is how the rest of the world has taken to referring to Americans! (Viewing note: we're watching the 97-minute US unrated cut! Check out our Twitter @killstreakpod for a viewing link!)
October 15, 2020
33. Escape from L.A. (1996)
This week's episode is all about the City of Angels, baby! John Carpent-ober continues with "Escape from L.A," the much maligned sequel to the cult classic "Escape from New York." Is this movie worth a second look? You'll only find out if you listen. Please, god, listen! Along the way, you'll learn exciting factoids like Snake Plissken's real first name and which one of your hosts likes the band Tool. Then in our final segment, we take all you listeners to "Film School" with a painstakingly curated curriculum of movies that can teach viewers about the real Los Angeles. We love it!
October 12, 2020
Maniac Live Commentary w/ Jefferson Dutton!

October 01, 2020
30. Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning (2004)
This week we tackle the third and final film in the Ginger Snaps trilogy! In this installment, the Fitzgerald sisters pull a "Back To The Future III" and give us some 19th century action (or general lack thereof). Can this trip to the Canadian frontier resurrect the brooding, sexy, witty vibes of the first film? Can the flirtations of Ginger and "The Hunter" match the smoldering chemistry of Christopher Lloyd and Ted Danson's wife? Will ZZ Top make a cameo appearance as a not-quite-period-appropriate band? All the answers and more lie within! Also, the voice of Kill Streak, Sir Ryan Martin OBE dishes out a piping hot werewolf movie quiz. This is appointment podcasting folks, don't miss it!
September 28, 2020
29. Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed (2004)
This week we're back with the second installment of the Ginger Snaps series. First one wasn't dark enough for you? Well buckle up, buttercup! This one is BLEAK. But it's also...surprisingly well done for a direct-to-VOD sequel?? Then during our wrap-up, it's the return of the segment everyone is clamoring for. That's right, get nice and relaxed for another COLON EXAM!!
September 22, 2020
28. Ginger Snaps (2000)
On this week's very special episode, we bark at the moon, pee on the rug, and lick ourselves. In between, we find a little time to review turn of the millennium gem "Ginger Snaps." If you've ever wanted to listen to two men spend an hour plus trying really hard not to make fools of themselves while talking about female puberty, this is the episode for you! Then stick around for our Top 5 lists of "Coming of Age" horror films.
September 14, 2020
27. Deep Blue Sea Rankings and Wrap-Up
In this fast-paced episode, we run through their definitive rankings of the Deep Blue Sea films. See if you can guess!! We also cover some superlatives and of course, stick around for the end where we unveil the next series we'll be covering!
September 10, 2020
26. Deep Blue Sea 3 (2020)
This week on the pod, Kill Streak heads to the theaters! Just kidding, no one should be going to the theaters because of the uncontrolled pandemic threatening the nation for the seventh consecutive month. We did, however, watch a brand new release!! It's...fine? It definitely has sharks and genetic engineering and questionable human decision making. We'll walk you through it in our newly rerecorded plot recap necessitated by some technical difficulties on Price's end. Then stick around for a brand new segment that went pretty well, all things considered!
September 07, 2020
25. Deep Blue Sea 2 (2018)
You thought you had seen the deepest and bluest the sea had to offer?? Well you were wrong! This week things get deeper, bluer, and much much cheaper as we wade into the murky waters of the SyFy original "Deep Blue Sea 2." This episode is gonna answer all the big questions we know you'll have because you almost definitely didn't watch this one along with us. Will big pharma once again monkey with the genetic code of killer sharks? How similar is the best CGI money could buy in 1999 to the cheapest available CGI of 2018?? Will you recognize anyone in this cast??? Then afterwards, stick around for a "Mt. Rushgore" of "scientists playing god with predictably horrific results!"
August 31, 2020
24. Deep Blue Sea (1999)
Price and Eric's hats are like shark fins in this wet and wild episode. This movie has it all: scientists playing God, sharks sneaking up on people in hallways, a wisecracking parrot...and perhaps the greatest end credits song of all time? Also, the boys compete in a shark movie trivia extravaganza, and the winners of the Horror Villain Tag Teams are announced.
August 24, 2020
23. Friday the 13th Rankings and Wrap-Up
Our long vacation at Crystal Lake (and briefly Manhattan) has come to an end.

Stay tuned to the end to find out the next film series up!
August 17, 2020
22. Friday the 13th (2009)
Old is new again! There’s nothing new under the sun! Nothing (g)old can stay, Ponyboy!

Then stick around to hear Mike and Eric’s ideas for horror films that might be more deserving of the remake treatment.
August 14, 2020
21. Freddy vs. Jason (2003)
What happens when two titans of horror cinema share the same screen? They kick the crap out of each other and murder everyone! After years in development hell, Freddy vs. Jason finally splattered it's way onto screens. Will our two heroes, Eric and Price, survive this ordeal? Will they find love along the way? Also, Price and Eric assemble their horror movie dream tag-teams. And they find love along the way (spoiler alert).
August 10, 2020
20. Jason X (2001)
Ground control to Major...Jason?! It’s 2001 and the Friday franchise has finally delivered the kind of space epic that Asimov and Kubrick could only DREAM about! Hear the guys tell all about this trip to the stars and then stick around to welcome back Ryan Martin, as he administers a rousing round of interstellar horror trivia. In space, no one can hear you buzz in.

18. Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)
Start spreading the news...this movie blows! Batten down the hatches, as Eric and Price brave the stormy seas of the Pacific Northwest in this laughable shitshow of a motion picture that has exactly one scene shot in NYC. Then stick around for some ‘Staff Picks’ as the boys recommend some better ways to get that New York fix you’ll surely be craving after this stinker.

17. Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988)
Buckle up for a telekinetic rollercoaster of an episode! If Jason vs. Carrie sounds like one hell of an elevator pitch, then this might be the Friday film for you. Orrrrr...you might hate it! Listen to Eric and Price take opposing sides in the debate over whether this movie sucks or is kinda fun! Either way, it's definitely different. Then the boys keep the mind over matter thread going with a Mt. Rushgore of telekinesis!

Together you'll dodge snakes on fishing line, yo-yos, projectile eyeballs, and harpoons on fishing line.

The time has come for the team at Kill Streak HQ to tackle one of the great pillars of horror franchise-dom! It's July, and even though summer camp is cancelled this year, you can still relive those sepia-toned memories with us as we cover the Friday the 13th series. Join us in the year 1980 for the one that started it all!

10. Blair Witch Rankings and Wrap Up
We bring the Blair Witch franchise to a close by ranking the three movies, recapping the highs and lows, and unveiling the Blair Witch dioramas we made for our class presentation. Then a rousing round of "Mt. Rushgore: Witch Movies," and finally, the unveiling of our next franchise. And let me tell you, constant listener, IT'S A BIG ONE!

9. Blair Witch (2016)
Beware, for this is the most cursed episode in annals of Kill Streak lore! Twice derailed by recording failures and haunted by recurring microphone bumping, is this episode marked by the Blair Witch herself? Eric and Price have never disagreed so much on a single film so much, perhaps one of them is possessed by the spirit of Elly Kedward!! Also, the boys play a rousing round of 'Marry, Fuck, Kill: Which Witch? Edition' and it's almost as regrettable as that sounds. You'll have to listen to believe it!

Bonus Episode 1: Listener Questions!
On this week's very special episode, Eric and Price start by shooting the shit about what they've been watching and playing outside the pod. Includes such classics as...Kevin Bacon and trophy wives! Why the Dark Universe sucks! Exploitation, poison bum wine, melting hobos, and trigger warnings! Price spends too much time and energy ranking the Star Wars Skywalker Saga! And many more! Then the boys field your questions about biggest franchise letdowns, perfect batting averages, potential nominees for future episodes, sequels we'd like to see, and then we wrap up it all with our Top 5 paranormal experts in film (some liberties taken)!

8. Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (2000)
On this week’s episode we do a deep dive on goth rights with the Blair Witch sequel that never should’ve been. It’s chock full of half-assed orgies, death owls, and Marilyn Manson B-sides. Then, a cherry on top with an all new installment of “Colon Exam.” Enjoy!
June 22, 2020
7. The Blair Witch Project (1999)
This week Eric and Price launch into a brand new franchise with "The Blair Witch Project." Price has never seen it before! Eric can't finish a sentence! Price keeps breathing into his mic like a poor man's Tony Soprano! And a movie is discussed! Then the boys talk "Mt. Rushgore" of found footage horror. It's a real whirlwind!

June 11, 2020
5. Return of the Living Dead: Rave to the Grave (2005)
This week features the final film in the ROTLD series and a fresh Romanian hell for all to enjoy. Eric and Price dissect this EDM themed zom-com (which curiously lacks much actual EDM) and ask the big questions, like "why don't any of these characters remember the events of the previous film, in which they starred?" Then the boys subject each other to a Chop Quiz, which like any good horror flick, quickly gets messy...
June 08, 2020
4. Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis (2005)
After a 12 year layoff, the ROTLD series is BACK, BABY! Was the wait worth it for "Necropolis?" In a word, no! No it was not! Eric and Price follow the franchise as it makes a big move to Romania and abandons 90% of the series' mythology. On the plus side, there is 100% more motocross and buttrock. Then after the recap, the boys introduce their newest segment, engaging in a rousing round of "Colon Exam!"

3. Return of the Living Dead 3 (1993)
Things take a turn for the darker in the third installment of the Return of the Living Dead series. If you're feeling nostalgic for the halcyon days of the early 90's, when everything was all sunshine, lollipops, and body modification, then this is the flick for you! It's got everything you could ask for: S&M zombies, star-crossed lovers, and literal nine inch nails. Then to wrap things up, Price and Eric nominate their picks for the "Mt. Rushgore" of body horror directors.
June 01, 2020
2. Return of the Living Dead Part II (1988)
Join Eric and Price as they tackle the misbegotten second film in the ROTLD franchise! There's a chintzy all-synth score, innumerable pointless changes of location, a moonwalking Thriller zombie, and a sassy southern talking zombie head that just won't quit. Why oh why won't it quit? Then the guys wrap things up with the first installment of "Staff Picks" where they put on their video store name tags and recommend some superior alternatives to rent. So fire it up and take a listen, and while you're at it, get that damn screwdriver OUT OF MY HEAD!
