Episode 65: ’90s Slasher Month (1) URBAN LEGEND

For the start of our ’90s slasher month, we cover Urban Legend (1998), a film with a star-studded cast – at least from the late ’90s – and an amazing amount of nostalgia. We talk about the presence of Urban Legend in our early years, the awesome ’90s names like Damon and Parker, and the amount of people who happened to have the same parka during the spring.

Episode 64: ALIENS

4/26 is Alien Day, and we’re celebrating it with the film that helped inspire the day: ALIENS! We talk about the film’s excellent setting, the infusion of both horror and action, Lance Henriksen’s perfection as a humanistic robot, and whether we like Alien or Aliens more. We also drink Bronx Brewing’s spring beer pack.

Episode 62: DEMOLITION MAN

We check out DEMOLITION MAN, the 1993 film starring Wesley Snipes and Sylvester Stallone that actually accurately depicts the future! We talk societal implications of a government that monitors all human choice, the comedic continuity within the film, the action scenes, and the wooden acting from Sandra Bullock.

Episode 61: GHOST IN THE SHELL (2017)

We’ve covered the original Ghost in the Shell anime, so it’s only fair that we cover the new 2017 adaptation starring Scarlett Johansson. We talk briefly about whitewashing, how this live-action film measures up to the original, the huge amount of exposition forced onto the viewer, and how ScarJo looks in a body suit; plus, we discuss our new local brewery, Stump City Brewing.

Intro: 0:00-10:00
Beer talk: 10-00:18:00
Ghost in the Shell: 18:00-end

Episode 60: THE NIGHT EVELYN CAME OUT OF THE GRAVE

We cover another giallo on the Blood and Black Rum Podcast – or at least a giallo/Gothic hybrid. This film has it all – redheads, constantly naked women, a drafty castle, ghosts, double- and triple-crossings, and a female-on-female murder! The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave is a crazy film, but it’s not perfect, and our two hosts disagree on a number of matters, making this episode an interesting listen.

Episode 59: St. Patty’s Day Special! LEPRECHAUN 2

We continue our annual Leprechaun viewings for St. Patrick’s Day with Leprechaun 2! This film is much better than the first, but it also feels like an adult Are You Afraid of the Dark? episode – we discuss how that’s both good and bad. We also talk Warwick Davis, Michael McDonald, Guinness’ new porters, and Catholic Lenten rules for St. Patrick’s Day!

Approximate timeline

Intro: 0:00-14:00
Beer talk: 14:00-25:00
Leprechaun 2: 15:00 – 1:07:00
’90s music from the film: 1:07:00 – end
