If there's one thing we love on this show, it's John Waters and killer clowns. Wait, that's 2 things. I guess you could say we hate math here too. In any case, we are tackling the fantastic and tragically forgotten OUT OF THE DARK (1989), which prominently features a clown-masked phone sex pervert, Divine's last film before passing away, and a totally unrealistic photo-shoot replete with fog machine and seizure-inducing freeze frames. It's even better than it sounds, and we want to...shed some light on the darkness surrounding this piece of cinema. Save up your quarters and grab some tissues, this week we're dialing 1-800-HMN-BOIS
Everyone knows that the death penalty is far more expensive and arguably more inhumane than life imprisonment, even if their murder-boners try to say otherwise. For-profit prisons are an abomination, and your hosts are here to show you what happens in them with a documentary film from 1988 called DESTROYER! In this totally-real-not-fantasy film, a convicted murderer doesn't die by electric chair, but just gets really swole and sweaty. He also really likes eating human hair, so take that as you will. We've talked Shocker and The Horror Show, it's time for the third installment of our electricity killer series, let's get buzzed!
You thought last week was our April Fools episode? SURPRISE! It's actually this week's (also Canadian) April Fools Evil Dead ripoff Killer Party from 1986. We got you good, right? Now listen to us quote this amazing and sadly forgotten 80s gem, and gush over how awesome the double fakeout opening scene featuring K-Mart Journey cover band White Sister is. Oh, there's also a haunted frat house, hazing, perms, off-brand Deadites and of course, a killer party. This is a film that must be seen to be truly appreciated, and it's our mission to spread the word about it henceforth. Plan out your best prank and grab the Aqua Net, it's time for another episode of Horror Movie Night!
