Episode 93: THANKSKILLING/Keystone Light

Our Thanksgiving episode hits a little early with our coverage of Thankskilling, the 2009 low-budget horror film. We try to figure out if it's intentionally or unintentionally bad; either way, we enjoy the ridiculousness of the plot, the bad dialogue, the tons of puns, the big boobies at the beginning of the film, and more! We also talk about Keystone Light because that's what they're drinking in the film. Approximate Timeline 0:00-15:00 Intro 15:00-25:00 Beer talk 25:00 - end Film...

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. We also discuss Budweiser's new 1933 Prohibition Repeal Amber Lager!

Episode 90: Remakeoween VIII | HALLOWEEN (2007)

Our last Remakeoween episode is Rob Zombie's Halloween from 2007. We saw this in theaters back when it released but haven't seen it since; we talk about the Zombification of John Carpenter's original, the trailer trash Michael Myers in this film, the presence of Malcolm McDowell for some strange reason, the film's inability to come up with a solid backstory for Michael despite spending an hour on his past, and more! We also talk about Genesee's Dark Chocolate Scotch Ale. Approximate...

Episode 89: Remakeoween VII | A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (2010)

On our seventh Remakeoween episode, we take on the remake A Nightmare on Elm Street with Jackie Earl Haley as the killer Freddy Kreuger. We talk about the CGI violence and gore, Freddy's jokey presence, the transition from Kris to Nancy as main character, douchebros, and compare the whole thing to Wes Craven's original. We also drink Harpoon's Flannel Friday and Golden Ale beers. Approximate timeline 0:00-10:00 Intro 10:00-20:00 Beer talk 20:00-end A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)...

Episode 88: Remakeoween VI | FRIDAY THE 13TH (2009)

On our sixth Remakeoween episode we talk about Friday the 13th, the 2009 remake - and luckily it corresponds with Friday, October 13th! We talk about stupendous boobies, all of the film's gory scenes, the douchebag bros that populate the cast, the fast-moving Jason, and we critique the film's 20 minute pre-title opening. We also cover some News in a new segment, and a new beer segment: Sam Adams Octoberfest vs. Harpoon Octoberfest! Approximate timeline 0:00-15:00 Intro 15:00-25:00 News...

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 86: Remakeoween IV | HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1999)

Our Remakeoween continues with HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1999), a remake that attempts to capture the cheesiness of the original William Castle film by adding a Vincent Price-esque figure and some real supernatural events. We talk about Famke Janssen, Chris Kattan's weird role, the CGI effects for The Darkness, and the fun late '90s feel of the movie. We also discuss the new beer delivery service Hopsy and Bronx Brewery's Summer Pale Ale with lemon. Approximate timeline 0:00 - 12:00 Intro...

Episode 85: Remakeoween III | NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1990)

Remakeoween continues with our coverage of Tom Savini's Night of the Living Dead remake, which was also re-written by George Romero. We talk about the increased gore and zombie effects, compare it to the original film, discuss Tony Todd's role as Ben, wonder about Romero's attempts to retcon his own series to better fit with the later Dead films, and ponder how well this film's conclusion matches the original's theme. Plus, we're drinking Adirondack Brewing's NYS Octoberfest! Approximate...

Episode 84: Remakeoween II | IT (2017)

Remakeoween continues with our 2nd remake (and we're cheating a bit), 2017's IT. We do a lot of comparing between this one, the original miniseries, and the novel, and we get into the positives and negatives of adapting such a long book into a relatively short film. We talk about the solid acting, the film's childhood humor, the resemblance to '80s films like The Goonies, the lack of adult "evil," CGI Pennywise, and more! We've also got Goose Island Festbier for drinking! Approximate...

Episode 83: Remakeoween I | THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (2003)

We start our Halloween Remakeoween series with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre from 2003 starring Jessica Biel as... a body of T&A. We talk about the film's lack of atmosphere, its nonchalant approach to the slasher genre, the heightened presence of gore, and its bland cookie-cutter aesthetic. We're not too kind to this one since it's often kind of boring and we recently watched the original for our Tobe Hooper retrospective! Approximate timeline 0:00 - 13:00 Intro 13:00 - end The Texas...

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. First we take a look at Hooper's films, then we get into TCM itself: the lengthy scenes, the noise soundtrack, the creepy Leatherface appearances, and the mental health illness of just about everyone in the film. 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 81: BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA/Modelo Negra

On this week's episode, we head to BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA with Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrall. We talk about how much of a different film this is for John Carpenter, discuss the soundtrack from Carpenter and Alan Howarth, commend Russell for his unusually comedic performance, and contemplate the background of the film's Chinese mysticism. We also drink Modelo Negra! Approximate timeline 0:00-10:00 Intro 10:00-16:00 Beer talk 16:00 - end Big Trouble in Little China //Subscribe to us on...

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 78: ATOMIC BLONDE/Denizens' Lowest Lord ESB

We're talking the new action/spy thriller ATOMIC BLONDE for our 78th episode! We discuss Charlize Theron's and Sophia Boutella's nudity, the context of Cold War spy games, James McAvoy's Green Street Houligan's haircut. and then we debate whether Charlize Theron's character actually has feelings for her female counterpart. It gets pretty heated. Beer on the show is Maryland brewery Denizens' Lowest Lord ESB. Approximate timeline 0:00-20:00 Intro 20:00 - 30:00 Beer talk 30:00 - end Atomic...

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...

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

Duration: 01:53:16


We're talking about SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING for our 75th episode. We discuss the film's humor, the CGI action sequences, Marisa Tomei's hotness, how well this Marvel film fits into the universe, and more! We call it "the best Marvel film we've covered on the show;" that's some pretty high praise. We also talk about both Dogfish Head Flesh & Blood IPA and the Sam Adams Rebel Juiced IPA.
