More like Jason BORE-hees, am I right fellas?

We return to Camp Crystal lake for the third time to round out the ‘Paramount era’ of Friday the 13th fims with 7th and 8th films in franchise.

7: The New Blood, has Jason Vorhees take on a psychic. While 8: Jason Takes Manhattan, finally sees the horror icon leave Crystal Lake for the big city. Jason Vs 'Carrie'! Jason Vs NY gangs! With killer concepts like that, these films can’t lose! Can they?

In this episode

  • Jason gets used to the water
  • Bad psychic battle tactics
  • Confusing timelines
  • Confusing travel times
  • Negligent electrical companies
  • And perhaps the biggest question of all, can Chris bear to watch any more of this film series?

It’s October so like every other podcast, here’s a loosely Halloween themed episode

In between 'franchise' episodes (where we delve into a particular film or series of films) we'll be doing bonus episodes where we talk about wider trends in sequel culture, sequel news, new trailers and whatever the hell we like.

In this episode…

-Brad Pitt’s World War Z sequel moves forward….but what will they call it?

-101 Dalmations ‘ Cruella DeVille never stood a chance

-Hellboy sizzle reel

-Halloween 2018 (the film) has an honest producer

-It’s Allen’s annual Halloween quiz

-The Suicide Squad sequel make a bold move

-and in an episode full of horrors, the man–flu!

Allen and Chris bring to life a monster of a podcast

James Whale’s two horror staples cemented Universal as the home of monster films, made Boris Karloff a superstar and gave us some of the most eduring images in horror. The two oldest films we’ve looked at so far but what films.

In this episode

  • Keeping that running time low
  • When are these film’s set?
  • Groovy intros
  • Undead chicks
  • How sane are you?
  • Colin Clive’s raspy voice
  • Elsa Lanchester’s iconic ‘Bride’
  • The queer subtext of Frankenstein
  • The other film going on in Frankenstein
  • We query the Scientific method of Dr. Pretorius
  • A new sponsor!
  • And we talk about jerking it. A lot.

Remind yourself of the films here:
