Episode 54: The Guardian (1990)


Sometimes there are directors who truly can do no wrong. Their careers are chock full of great films executed flawlessly... The director of The Exorcist is not one of those people, as evidenced by Adam's pick this week: 1990's baby-stealing opus The Guardian! The guys have a lot of criticism for the 90 minutes of film on either side of the biker gang deaths at the spooky tree, as they're all too jaded to be swayed by baby-crazy naked witches. Come bathe in front of your shirtless employer on a new episode of Horror Movie Night!
