Our Festivus Series continues, and so does our yearly coverage of the Silent Night, Deadly Night series. We're onto part 3, subtitled Better Watch Out!, and we're talking about the lack of Christmas in this film, the poor continuity from the previous movie, the horrible direction and slow pacing, and a whole lot more flaws in this barely-holiday film. Also, we've got Brown's Brewery's Rauchbier on the show! Approximate timeline 0:00-12:00 Intro 12:00-25:00 Beer talk 25:00 - end Film review...

We're back with a new superhero episode! We're talking about the new MCU film THOR: RAGNAROK. We discuss the weird plotting issues that plague the film, Jeff Goldblum's presence, the colorful synth-y new world that Taika Waititi has built, and the more comedic aspect of this release.

Episode 87: Remakeoween V | EVIL DEAD (2013)

In our fifth Remakeoween episode we take on Evil Dead, the 2013 remake from Fede Alvarez that is not exactly a reboot and not exactly a remake. We talk about how it sits somewhere in between, discuss the attempts at homage, the increased violence, the poor acting, and the new plot involving drug addiction and metaphorical demons. We also talk about Kelso Brewing Company's IPA. Approximate timeline 0:00 - 16:00 Intro 16:00 - 25:00 Beer talk 25:00 - end Evil Dead //Subscribe to us on iTunes:...


Episode 82: Tobe Hooper Retrospective/THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE

On episode 82 we pay tribute to the late Tobe Hooper with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

We also tackle Genny Grungeist Pale Ale for the beer this week. Approximate timeline 0:00-20:00 Intro/Retrospective 20:00-40:00 Beer talk 40:00 - end The Texas Chainsaw Massacre //Subscribe to...


Episode 80: THE MANGLER/Olde Saratoga Death Wish Nightmare IPA

We take on The Mangler for episode 80 of the podcast, talking about the ridiculousness of Tobe Hooper's 1995 horror film. We discuss the 1800s working conditions of the laundry factory, Robert Englund's terrible makeup and over-the-top acting, Ted Levine's constant cursing, and the film's horrible CGI - and yet we loved it! We also briefly touch on DUNKIRK and talk about Olde Saratoga Brewing Company's Death Wish Nightmare IPA.


Episode 79: MAKO: THE JAWS OF DEATH/Big Elm 413 Farmhouse Ale

We cover the sharksploitation film MAKO: THE JAWS OF DEATH for episode 79 of Blood and Black Rum Podcast. Unlike its poster the film is very different from its obvious inspiration JAWS, with a plot about a man whose special talisman controls sharks to do his bidding. While we don't have a lot of great things to say about it, we talk about the overbearing soundtrack, the film's ridiculous plotting, and contemplate if it's so good it's bad. We also drink Big Elm Brewing's 413 Farmhouse Ale....

Episode 77: DREDD/Saranac Haus Lager

We talk about the 2012 action film DREDD for episode 77. We give props to Karl Urban, who manages to scowl for the entire length of the film. Speaking of length, we praise the 95 minute running time. We ponder whether Olivia Thrilsby actually does a nude scene or if it's a body double. We also talk about Saranac's new Haus Lager in their German Roots fall pack! Have a listen and let us know what you think! Approximate timeline 0:00-15:00 Intro 15:00-25:00 Beer talk 25:00-end Dredd...

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. Approximate timeline 0:00-20:00 Intro...



We're talking about SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING for our 75th episode.

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. Approximate timeline 0:00 - 16:00 Intro 16:00 - 30:00 Beer talk...

In our 70th episode we continue our coverage of the DC superhero universe with WONDER WOMAN.

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