Mini Ep. 17

This mini episode was recorded during my visit to Minnesota and as a result, Skinner's daughter Holly picked the movie that we'll be talking about in full next week. Listen in on this mini as we predict the movie's plot just based on its (rather descriptive) title. We also invent a fake Subway restaurant chain and quiz Holly on armadillos.

17. Robot Wars / Kill Box (2016)

We recorded this episode together in the same room for the first time ever! The experience was great; we're just sorry the movie we picked isn't better. You can literally chart how far our excitement falls from Part 1 of this episode into Part 2. We really thought it was gonna be a good one! Why did they think calling this Robot War was a good idea when there is literally only one robot in the film? Why doesn't every sci-fi movie have a character named Decker? Why is Kyle such a nothing...

Mini Ep. 16

For this mini episode, we decided to try something different: recording in the same room. For the first time, we recorded an episode in person. Because this is a special occasion, Skinner decided to put our fate in my hands with something he called a Redbox Challenge. Will I pick something good? Will we survive? There's only one way to know for sure!

Ep. 16: Dr. Hackenstein (1988)

We close out our Spooktacularly Funny Summer Scare-a-thon with the absolutely lackluster Dr. Hackenstein. There is tons of potential here, but it just isn't explored in any memorable way - so we explore it for them by taking their premise and trying to make it better. Josh also takes a bold stance of the fate of crusty old deans.

Duration: 01:10:06

Mini Ep. 15

We prepare for the end of summer by revealing the last movie in our Summer Scare-a-thon Spooktacular Special Marathon (or WHATEVER we've been calling it). If only Dr. Hackenstein was actually about a computer hacker and not a lame retread of Frankenstein (probably! We haven't watched it yet!).

Ep. 15: Hunk (1981)

We're heading to the Yuppie-filled beach in this week's episode on the 1981 supernatural comedy Hunk. Just how hunky is this hunk? Why is the devil a time traveller? What exactly IS included in the Yuppie Program? Some of these questions will be answered!

Duration: 01:31:02

Mini Ep. 14

We gamed the system a little bit for next week's movie, the selling-my-soul-to-the-devil-to-be hot comedy Hunk, but I can guarantee it won't reach the dizzying heights we predict it will in today's mini episode.

Duration: 00:10:47

Ep. 14: My Mom's A Werewolf (1989)

We continue our summer series of supernatural comedies with the aptly-named My Mom's A Werewolf. This movie's got it all: cheap-looking werewolves, John Saxon being a creep, a visit to a very weird dentist, and a man with the excellent name Lou Lamont (or does it?).

Duration: 01:29:42

Mini Ep. 13

We keep rolling right along with the Summer Spooktacular (or whatever it is we're calling it) by revealing our next film: My Mom's a Werewolf. This title is so obvious, it'll probably zig when we expect to zag and have no werewolves at all!

Duration: 00:13:17

Ep. 13: High Spirits (1988)

We finally tackle a Steve Guttenberg film as we continue our unintentional Silly Summer Spook-A-Thon (or whatever we're calling this) with 1988's horror comedy High Spirits. Why isn't Beverly D'Angelo attracted to Steve Guttenberg? Why is Daryl Hannah so attracted to Steve Guttenberg? Just how tall is Liam Neeson? Why is that horse talking? Was Peter O'Toole really drunk all the time? Will we answer any of these questions? You'll have to listen in to find out.

Duration: 01:20:25

Mini Ep. 12

In this mini episode, we come up with a much better movie than High Spirits could ever be. If this movie is not about stoned ghosts, then what are we even doing with our lives?

Duration: 00:08:14

Ep. 12: Rockula (1990)

In our most musical episode to date, we sink our fangs into the super goofy horror/musical comedy Rockula, wherein there are good songs, bad songs, and absolutely AWFUL songs. Plus: our hero has a sassy reflection, the ability to turn into a walking fart, and a band with Bo Diddley. We also invent an absolutely killer song about monsters mashing things.

Duration: 01:18:14

Mini Ep. 11

In this mini episode, we break down the title of our next film and try to figure out what it could be. Rockula sounds pretty awesome on its face: a cool rock 'n roll vampire, but can it match the awesomeness of our pitch? Tune in next week to find out for sure!

Duration: 00:08:28

Ep. 11: Dino King (2012)

This movie was suggested by friend of the show Spencer Seams (who co-hosts High & Low: An Akira Kurosawa podcast) and boy oh boy, it is not good. Still, there are good goofs within this episode and a special appearance by Skinner's daughter, who is just the best. You should listen for her commentary alone.

Duration: 01:06:52

Mini Ep. 10

Friend of the show Spencer (cohost of the Akira Kurosawa podcast High & Low) suggested this film to us, so here we are. Will this be another smashing success like previous listener-suggested Turkey Shoot or another disappointing mess like the animal-themed Army Dog or Bunnyman Massacre (turns out we've done a ton of movies with animals in the title)? Only one way to find out...

Duration: 00:08:01

Ep. 10: Turkey Shoot (1982)

This is what we've been waiting for! We usher in the double digits by diving into one of the coolest, sleaziest 80s action ozploitation films to ever exist: Turkey Shoot. If you don't know anything about this movie, watch it now because we are going to spoil the greatest moment in the movie (and one of the greatest moments in movie history) and you need to see it for yourself before we do. Seriously, this movie rules. Big thanks to our pal Felipe Sobreiro (@therealsobreiro on twitter) for...

Duration: 01:28:10

Mini Ep. 9

In this mini episode, we prepare ourselves for a film suggested by listener and comic artiste Felipe Sobreiro (@therealsobreiro on twitter). We haven't been looking forward to a movie this much since the release of Crow Stab.

Duration: 00:12:23

Ep. 9: Equals (2015)

In this episode we take a look at Equals, a sci-fi romance suggested by previous guest Beau North. Spoilers: We absolutely nail the predictions this week, so really no need to listen to the second half of the episode. But if you do, you'll hear our thoughts on the nature of love, what it must be like to feel emotions for the first time, especially in regards to kissing and boners, as well as whether this future understands what werewolves are, and we predict what an Equals sequel might...

Duration: 01:17:17

Mini Ep. 8

Beau North, our special guest on last week's City Island episode, sticks around to reveal the film she chose to fall prey to our prediction powers.

Duration: 00:09:19

Ep. 8: City Island (2009) w/ special guest Beau North

In this episode, we're joined by author-podcaster Beau North to discuss the 2009 family dramedy City Island. We talk bad Marlon Brando impressions, accents, secret smoking, feederism, and introduce a new term into the Predict-O-Cast lexicon that's sure to capture the hearts and minds of everyone listening. Find out more about Beau North at her website
