Written by horror icon Clive Barker (a.k.a. Pervy Lovecraft) and based on his short story, Rawhead Rex sees the return of a goofy-looking hell demon to terrorize a small Irish village, with only an obnoxious American photographer and his sexy grey cardigan to stop it. Check out our episode, along with our custom cocktail and drinking game!
We test our commitment to Sparkle Motion with Jon Espino of The Young Folks and HollywoodChicago.com as we revisit Richard Kelly’s 2001 cult time travel teen drama Donnie Darko! The hit of the Hot Topic crowd in the early 2000s, for better or worse, we go back to this twisty, navel-gazing mixture of American Beauty and The Butterfly Effect to see if its profundities still hold up. Take a listen, and check out our custom cocktail and drinking rules!
Regular guest Derek Jarvis joins us to talk about the little-seen (but surprisingly effective) home invasion thriller Unlawful Entry! When a couple (Kurt Russell, Madeleine Stowe) narrowly survive a home invasion, they run into a shady cop (Ray Liotta) who seems all too willing to abuse his power to take over as man of the house. A creepy post-Rodney King erotic thriller about police brutality and white flight, we actually dug Unlawful Entry quite a bit. Check out our review, along with our custom cocktail and drinking rules!
we toke up with Shannon Campe (of the podcast Stage of Fools) and Zach Powers (also of Stage of Fools and The Revisionists) as we dig into 2001’s stoner comedy How High! When Method Man and Redman get into Harvard by smoking the ashes of their dead friend, you know you’re in for a baffling experience. Along the way, we talk about the film’s quaint early-aughts racism, the weird blending of frat and hip-hop cultures, and the fact that a college comedy buries the lede by secretly being about GHOST WEED.
