Episode 245: Werewolves on Wheels (1971)
Brian's love of bad 70s exploitation/horror is well-known on the show, and this week he subjected his unsuspecting cohosts to 1971's WEREWOLVES ON WHEELS! There's a lot of riding motorcycles while intoxicated (tsk tsk) and satanic rituals, but not much actual werewolf action. Join us as we scratch our collective head at this weird movie, which Brian has NO shame about choosing!

It's time to do your civic duty and cast your ballot for a man who will keep his campaign promises, specifically if those include turning into a blood-thirsty lycanthrope and disemboweling crooked politicians. We dig deep into the vault for the 1973 horror comedy THE WEREWOLF OF WASHINGTON! Your hosts are joined this week by the illustrious Chris LaMartina, the mastermind behind one of our favorite recent flicks, the WNUF Halloween Special, and we get into some polite political discourse between riffing on the weird stuff that occurs in Werewolf of Washington (there's a lot). Scott also gets a little starstruck by Chris's film credits (heyyyy Call Girl of Cthulhu) - do you think the Pentagon is behind this??
The world needs more werewolf movies, and by the world, we mean Horror Movie Night, because god damn, do we love werewolves on this show! We've suffered through some of the best and worst lycanthropic films (looking at you, Howling 6), and decided to treat ourselves to an actual good b-movie for once, 1996's Bad Moon - which, thankfully/surprisingly does NOT feature that stupid ass Creedence song... This movie also stars a very G O O D B O Y E named Thor (the titular character from the source material), so you know we're into it. Tow your jenky trailer to our backyard and tie yourself to the nearest tree, it's time for another episode of Horror Movie Night!
