Episode 36: Evilspeak (1981)
Ever wondered what Mean Girls would be like if it the genders were switched, it took place in 1980 and the Mathletes are swapped for a satanic computer program? Of course you did, and for your mental troubles, we decided to discuss Evilspeak, starring the one and only Clint Howard. Get ready to compare 3 1/2 inch floppies in the shower, it's Horror Movie Night!

"ESTABAN" - Everyone
More Clint Howard Films
We try to stay up on all trends on this show, so this week we don some streetwear, stupid sunglasses and listen exclusively to Outrun music - HMN has gone full vaporwave aesthetic and we're talking the Charlie Sheen/Clint Howard Knightrider worship flick THE WRAITH (1986)! This movie is hot garbage, and has a serious cult following we just. don't. get. The car doesn't even look sweet! Or talk! But we can imagine the mountains of coke that brought this film to life, and we respect that. So take a bump on this back-desert road as we drag race through another episode of Horror Movie Night!
Lactose intolerant listeners, beware: this movie stinks more then your bedroom at night after drinking a whole milkshake... It's been far too long since our favorite weirdo has graced us with his onscreen presence, so we struggled through Clint Howard's "acting" in 1995's The Ice Cream Man. There's implied cannibalism, malpractice lawsuits everywhere, oh and Cool Chris from Punchline quoting the douchey older brother's best lines! Seriously, Chris Fafalios is our guest, and we're on our best behavior. Kinda. Get your oral fixation under control with a push pop or rocket pop and settle in for another creamy episode of Horror Movie Night!
What's better than Christmas in July? A Brian Yuzna Christmas in July! At Scott's longtime insistence, the boys finally tackle 1990's barely-xmas-horror goop-fest Silent Night Deadly Night 4: Initiation. It's got everything you expect from a Yuzna flick - racial caricatures, bugs, nightmare logic, and of course the requisite swimming pool full of KY. Hey, it's even got our boy Clint Howard in it! There is absolutely no reason to sleep on this one, except for the fact that it's only available as a multipack DVD with SNDN3 (brain under a glass helmet Santa killer) and SNDN5 (rapey Pinocchio), so maybe go searching on Vimeo for it like we did. Don't forget to put out some milk and cookies for the giant cockroach!
