Episode 76: George Romero Retrospective/NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD

We talk about George Romero on this retrospective for the late director, including his Dead series and other directed films. Then we get more specific with our discussion about NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, including criticism of the shock-addled Barbra, a contemplation on the metaphorical element of casting a black man in the lead roll, and tackling the highs and lows of this classic zombie film. We also talk about Stewart’s Shops High Cliff IPA.

Episode 73: HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL/Jeremiah Weed Sarsaparilla Whiskey

On our 73rd episode we tackle the 1959 horror classic House on Haunted Hill starring Vincent Price, a film that holds up surprisingly well despite some hokier scares. We talk about the ghosts and murderous twists, the excellent linguistics of Price, the treatment of women and their “hysterics,” and the drunken antics of Pritchard. We also cover Jeremiah Weed’s Sarsaparilla Whiskey!

Episode 71: THE MUMMY/Pilsner Urquell & Genesee Helles Bock

Blood and Black Rum Podcast covers the trainwreck 2017 film THE MUMMY starring Tom “Clueless” Cruise. It’s a vapid, overblown action film that truly has nothing to do with the original Universe horror classics, and we talk about its stupid action scenes, Tom Cruise’s obvious flaws as a scamp character, the idiocy of the film’s multiple settings, and more! We also discuss Pilsner Urquell and Genesee’s Helles Bock beers.

Episode 68: ’90s Slasher Month (4) HALLOWEEN: H20

Ending our official ’90s Slasher Month, we take on Halloween: H20 – one of the worst sequels in the franchise, so bad that we’re not sure if it’s worse than Halloween: Resurrection. We talk about Michael Myers’ non-presence in the film, the awkward use of John Carpenter’s original score, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s quick presence, Adam Arkin’s mauling of Jamie Lee Curtis, and much more!

Continuing our ’90s Slasher Month, we take on THE FACULTY, the 1998 body snatcher film about high school students battling killer aliens.
