Episode 42: Hello Mary Lou - Prom Night II (1987)


Hop in your fliptop, grab your best girl and pin her up on Lovers' Lane, because this week, the guys are going steady with 1987's Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II! Matt is the square Mary Lou is dating, Adam is the one she's hooking up with backstage at the prom, and Scott is somewhere writing songs about it all. This barely-related sequel to the Jamie Lee Curtis vehicle original has religious parents, teen pregnancy, daddy-daughter tenderness and one of the podcast's favorite topics: ghost sex. Your tux better be pressed and the corsage cooling in the fridge, because it's Horror Movie Prom Night...2!

WANT A PODCAST? LOOKIN FOR COMPANY? LIKE CAPS LOCK? HOW ABOUT 1990'S FRANKENHOOKER? This week, the guys get elbow deep in giant crack rocks and purple goo, and discuss Matt's romantic evening plans, Adam's scientific proclivities, and Scott's ongoing obsession with head explosions. Got any money? It's Horror Movie Night!

We walk a thin line with the movies discussed on the show, one balancing nostalgia with the reality of b (and sometimes z) grade horror. Often, the former cannot even out the latter, but not this week. No, this week, we discuss CARRIE 2: THE RAGE from 1999 and it's somehow better now than it was when it was first released. If you avoid comparing it to Brian De Palma's original, this is a well-executed sequel with a LOT of great kills. Put on your party dress (red, of course) and cut loose with your bros in Horror Movie Night!

Ever wonder if the pretty girls in high school were actually evil? Well, grab your favorite Jell-O (lime), put on your favorite record (Low Shoulder) and shine up your favorite utility knife, cuz the boys are discussing Jennifer’s Body and have the answer! Scott finds himself eating lunch alone again, Adam wants to give Diablo Cody a swirly, and Matt’s just here for the soundtrack. Sing along to some omnipresent radio rock and hold a candlelight vigil - we’re back for another Horror Movie Night!
