Episode 29: Tales From The Crypt - Demon Knight (1995)
We hope you're hungry, because this week we're chewing scene after scene with Billy Zane in 1995's horror comedy (?) Tales From the Crypt: Demon Knight! Adam picked this one on a friend's suggestion, and now has one less friend; Matt and Scott do their best William Sadler impressions, and more disturbing light is shed on Scott's morning habits. Grab your flask of Jesus blood, it's time for another Horror Movie (Demon) Night!

Nyahnyahnyahnyah nyah nyah,nyahnyahnyahnyah nyah nyah, nyahnyah nyah nyahnyahnyahnyahnyah nyahhhhhh! It's episode 150 of Horror Movie Night and we decided to treat ourselves after midnight with a little film we like to call GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH from 1990! We also were finally able to bring our Podfather Jonathon London, creator of Geekscape, along for the ride, and this was way better than our original request to do CHUD with him 3 years ago... We have a blast revisiting this beloved gem and questioning some of the movie logic on display, but does it really matter because VEGETABLE GREMLIN! Thanks for sticking with us and helping keep us crazy enough to watch 150 horror films and discuss them weekly over the last 3 years of the show. Here's to 150 more (and Gremlins 3, written by, directed by and starring Pizzaboy Jon London)!
This week, we're talking about killer robots! No, sorry, we're not discussing Robocop 2. Or Terminator 2. Or Blade Runner. Or The Matrix. No, we're getting it on in the mall furniture store with Chopping Mall from 1986! Full disclosure, we're the ones awkwardly watching old Roger Corman flicks on the tv and clutching a pillow to our laps while our friends make weird squishy sounds. They deserve to get murdered by killbots, those dirty birdies. While not quite a lost episode, this is the second time Matt and Scott have discussed this film, and this round is arguably more coherent, so you're welcome? If you know what's good for you, you'll listen to Horror Movie Night. THANK YOU, HAVE A NICE DAY.
Just when you thought you had escaped the mediocrity of the Amityville Horror franchise, we remind you that things got really weird once the evil in the house started possessing random decorations. The clock is ticking, so join our discussion about AMITYVILLE 1992: IT'S ABOUT TIME! There's the dad from Monster Squad, the girl from PCU, and an old lady gets speared through the chest with a stork statue. Read that again. STORK. STATUE. KILL. That's about all we need to get a good episode out of this one, but rest assured, there's more to talk about than just that. But really. Stork statue kill.
