Episode 249: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)
Any other year, we would be knee deep in corsages, tulle, hairspray and prophylactics right about now (aka prom season), but a pandemic can be a real cockblock. So, to either soothe or further irritate that disappointment, we're talking a great prom-ish flick, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER (1993). This movie really needs no introduction, so just listen to the episode and quote along with us!

You voted and we responded. Wrapping up the year that was 2019 we watch a movie released in 1990 that was reflecting on the 60's... CRY-BABY. John Waters released one of his most mainstream films packed with rock-a-billy songs, awkward kissing and Johnny Depp at his Johnny Dreamiest. Join us on the film episode of HORROR MOVIE NIGHT (where we don't talk about a Horror Movie).
Welcome to the new year, dudes! We're, like, totally stoked to be here in 2019 with our flannel shirts and acid-washed jeans, backwards hats and smoked-out brains, and we're going to play you a bunch of air guitar to celebrate! You voted to give rock and roll to us, in the form of BILL & TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY (though Bill & Ted Go To Hell would've been a much better and more straightforward title). Matt is painfully excited about this one, while Scott is just in pain, and Brian is... well, Brian the peacemaker. Ring in another trip round the sun with your boys in HMN, starting with Alex Winter in disturbing full granny makeup!
We made it through Rocktober and there's only one way to top that - the spiritual successor to Teen Wolf, 1989's charming TEEN WITCH! While not all of the hosts may have had fun watching this one, at least one of them found a wellspring of joy in the magical escapades of the bookworm-turned-babe Louise Miller as she gains the power to turn frogs into sex slaves for Zelda Rubinstein, send date rapists to the Negative Zone, and bum denim jackets off of pop singers. Did we mention the multiple spontaneous dance numbers? Well now you know, so sit back and practice your "school sucks" raps, because it's Halloween on Horror Movie Night!
