Episode 16- Return of the Killer Tomatoes

4/17/2019
More
Return of the Killer Tomatoes is so much fun, we invited a special guest, Rob Krosky, to join in the review this week. As far as the cast and crew’s credentials and careers, the only real noteworthy actors are George Clooney (From Dusk till Dawn, Return to Horror High, Batman & Robin) and John Astin (The Addams Family, Batman (no, seriously, he played The Riddler in 2 episodes). This film would later be adapted into a cartoon show called Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, which ran for just over...

Episode 15- The Lost Boys (Bryan's Birthday Party Edition!)

What better movie to review when oldening than the one that promises eternal youth for bloodshed?! This week, we review The Lost Boys, starring Jason Patric as Michael, Mike, Mikey, Mikowski. His brother, Sam, is played by the late Cory Haim, while his mother is played by Academy Award Winner, Dianne Wiest (Edward Scissorhands, Hannah and Her Sisters). Horror veteran, Corey Feldman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Goones, Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter) plays Edgar Frog, half...

Episode 14- Street Trash

4/3/2019
More
While not a Troma film in name, Street Trash definitely fits the bill in spirit. This film is one of the most revered “melt movies,” spawning several imitators. Originally, director, James Muro Jr., created a 15-minute short film of the same name. He later teamed with his former professor at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and screenwriter, Roy Frumkes, to turn the gross out short into a feature film. Of note, Roy Frumkes played the pie face zombie in Dawn of the Dead, and his...

Episode 13- The Running Man (Slash Action Hero Edition)

3/27/2019
More
A schlocky action movie on your favorite horror movie podcast? Yup. Why? Because we felt like it. Also, this movie is based on a novella of the same name, written by Stephen King (under his Richard Bachman pseudonym). Also also, there is a murderer who wields a bladed hockey stick and literally epitomizes the name of this show. Though it was released in 1987, it feels more like 1984, given the military state in power. The story follows Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator, Conan the Barbarian,...

Episode 12- Ice Cream Man

3/20/2019
More
Ice Cream Man, a horror movie starring professionally unsettling, Clint Howard, whose face only a rich, talented older brother could love. Clint has been in the industry since he was two years old, ranging from The Andy Griffith Show to The Waterboy with Blubberella and Evilspeak in between. He even started a band called The Kempsters back in the 1980s. In this film, by a porn director attempting reformation, Clint's character kills David Naughton (An American Werewolf in London) with a...

Bonus- Leprechaun 4: In Space (w/ Special Guest: MY WIFE!)

3/17/2019
More
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Sure it’s a holiday about driving allegorical snakes out of Ireland and not debauchery, leprechauns, and lucky charms, but we figured there was no better way to celebrate than a bonus episode reviewing Leprechaun 4: IN SPACE! Warwick Davis reprises his role as the titular leprechaun, in his quest to wed an alien princess and take over the galaxy. The film parodies Alien, Aliens, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Fly, and many others. While it is not art in its purest form,...

Episode 11- Leprechaun

3/13/2019
More
"Your luck just ran out," because Slashers is back with a new episode. This file stars a debuting Jennifer Aniston (Friends, Horrible Bosses, Quantum Leap), opposite Warwick Davis (Star Wars, Life's Too Short, Harry Potter, Willow). The film was written and directed by Mark Jones, a veteran of children's programing and it certainly shows in this film, which is more silly than scary. This film ultimately spawned numerous sequels, which range from "da hood," to da outer space. Leprechaun,...

Episode 10- Castle Freak

3/6/2019
More
It’s that time again, goons: another episode of whimsy, fart jokes, and gore. This week we review Stuart Gordon’s Castle Freak. The film starts Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton, both having starred in Re-Animator and From Beyond, also by Stuart Gordon. Combs (The Pit and the Pendulum, The Man with Two Brains, Frightmare) plays recovering alcoholic, John Reilly, who inherits an entire castle from an aunt he never knew. His wife, Susan, played by Crampton (Chopping Mall, Puppet Master: The...

Episode 9- Carrie (w/ The Worst Horror Podcast)

First and foremost, we are excited to announce the start of the Crap Ass Little Podcast Network. It is a group of podcasters that we know and respect and are eager to introduce you to! To help out this week, the gals from our little sister show, The Worst Horror Podcast, join Jake to talk about Carrie (1976). This was the first novel written by acclaimed horror writer, Stephen King (IT, The Shining, 'Salem's Lot, Pet Sematary). Brian De Palma (Dressed to Kill, The Untouchables, Phantom of...

Episode 8- Blood Diner

2/20/2019
More
Originally conceived as a sequel to Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Blood Feast, the cult classic, Blood Diner, became its own frighteningly unique entity. The New York Times reviewed the film, stating plainly that “this is not a movie; it’s celluloid swill.” The plot is a tale as old as time, two idiots and a talking brain in a jar set out to resurrect an ancient Lumerian goddess. The parallels to Blood Feast are great as both films center around men harvesting the body parts of women to serve as...

Episode 7- Salem's Lot

2/13/2019

It's that time of the month again, the boys are hopped up on smelling salts and ready to talk Stephen King (Carrie, IT, The Shining)! This month it's cult classic, Salem's Lot or 'Salem's Lot, whichever you prefer. In this podcast, your favorite goons review both the book and movie, so you can don't have to (they even touch on Jerusalem's Lot and One for the Road). Just sit back and enjoy impressing your friends or the host at your local pub's Wednesday night trivia with your knowledge...

Bonus- Pet Sematary Trailer Review (w/ Special Guest Becki from Teenage Werewolves Horror Film Fiend Club)

2/12/2019
More
Pet Sematary will always be near and dear to us at Slashers. As you may recall, it was our first episode. Naturally, we have been following the production of the new remake very closely. It seems that the newest trailer reveals a remarkable twist to the source material. Becki is kind enough to discuss those changes, their impact, and how it affects our excitement of the upcoming film. Stephen King, Kevin Kölsch, Dennis Widmyer, Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, John Lithgow, Horror...

Episode 6- The Craft

2/6/2019

To further celebrate Women in Horror Month (and 90's Horror Week), we gave Bryan the week off while Jake and Ciara reviewed The Craft. The film stars Robin Tunney as Sarah, Fairuza Balk as Nancy, (a pre-Scream) Neve Campbell as Bonnie, Rachel True as Rochelle, and (a pre-Scream) Skeet Ulrich as a creepy jock DOUCHEBAG. In this episode, we discuss the comparisons between this film and Hocus Pocus (1993) and the works of J.K. Rowling. Sarah, whose mother passed away during her infancy, is a...

Overtime: Bundy Bonus

2/2/2019
More
First and foremost, if you stumbled onto this episode because you liked Netflix's true crime documentary series, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, this might not be the episode for you. This was originally conceived as a weekly episode, but the boys pretty much absolutely, kinda entirely hated the series, so it was demoted to the first ever Slashers Overtime (bonus) Episode! (Frankly, they enjoyed the trailer for Zac Efron's Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, more...

Episode 5- Mimic (w/ Special Guest: My Wife!)

1/30/2019

As a precursor to Women in Horror Month (February), my wife was kind enough to guest host an episode of the show. In this episode, we discuss Mimic, the sophomore effort of director, Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim), starring Mira Sorvina (guys, did you know the lady from Romy and Michele's High School Reunion won a friggin' Academy Award?). The film features an ensemble cast including a pre-Thanos Josh Brolin, a pre-The Walking Dead Norman Reedus, and Doug Jones...

Episode 4- C.H.U.D.

1/23/2019
More
A recent (well, not SO recent since this movie came out in 1984) article in a New York newspaper reported that there were large colonies of people living under the city... The paper was incorrect. What is living under the city is not human. C.H.U.D. is under the city. On this episode, the boys review C.H.U.D. and its many meanings. Jake has had a fondness for this movie since stumbling onto it based on the drummer, Dr. CHUD of the now defunct reincarnation of The Misfits from the 1990's....

Episode 3- The Faculty

It's a hat trick, ladies and gentlemen! Our third official episode is live! This week, we discuss the Robert Rodriguez cult classic, The Faculty. We review the parallels to The Breakfast Club, address each and every sci fi homage in the movie (Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Puppet Master, Men in Black, The Thing, Alien, etc.), and we rank the film in comparison to our prior episodes.

Episode 2- An American Werewolf in London

Sure, the first full moon of the year, called a "Wolf Moon," is not until 1/20, but what kind of monsters would we be if we made you wait for this episode any longer? This week, the film is An American Werewolf in London. Writer/ Director, John Landis (Twilight Zone, Blues Brothers), paired up with Rick Baker (The Wolfman, Men in Black, Star Wars), whose effects earned the first ever Academy Award for Best Makeup, for this comedy-horror classic that arguably started a somewhat low-key...

In this first official episode, your gregarious goons go over Pet Sematary, Pet Sematary 2, Stephen King's original novel, and briefly look at the upcoming remake. We analyze what from the original source material would make the new film superior because as it goes with books, "sometimes read is better."
