Episode 287: My Bloody Valentine (1981)


Hey all you lovebirds out there! We know what your sweetheart wants this Valentine's Day, and it's definitely a human heart in a heart-shaped chocolate box. We're discussing the cult classic MY BLOODY VALENTINE (1981) thanks to Brian and we could just kiss him for it. Lucky for him, it's still a pandemic and we don't live close enough to menace him with physical affection.

More 80's Slashers

Remember what we said last week about questionable content? It's back in full force with Matt's first official pick of 2021, 1980's FADE TO BLACK. If you like bad Cagney and Monroe impressions, boy do we have a movie for you! It's not good, but at least we got to talk about that sweet TOURIST TRAP poster in the first 10min of the movie.

We try to keep it topical here on HMN, so this Thanksgiving we're going to really just beat you over the head with Scott's lifestyle choices as we discuss the phenomenal cult classic MOTEL HELL (1980). We discussed this way back in the first iteration of the podcast, but watching the fresh Blu-ray remaster really elevates everything beyond 80s nostalgia and splatter. As we all know, meat's meat and man's gotta eat, so dig in and happy Thanksgiving!

Listener Submitted Month wraps up with one of Matt's favorite movies. We couldn't have a listener submitted month without the unofficial 4th host Kyle Kuchta. Matt saw this at a drive in and thinks that makes him special. We dive into Dean Koontz's novelization, this extremely slow burn film and how amazing the last 15 minutes of this movie is.
