The Fog • TCS-008

Assault on Precinct 13 • TCS-007
The Dudes discuss John Carpenter's sophomore effort, Assault on Precinct 13, and one of them seriously considers classifying this cult classic as "Just for Johnny's Mommy". Who should you address that hate mail to? LISTEN AND FIND OUT!
Christine • TCS-006
Buckle up! The Dudes kick this episode into high gear to discuss John Carpenter’s 1983 adaptation of Stephen King’s novel about a ravenous roadster with a motive for murder. Yup, we're talking about that candy apple red 1953 Plymouth Fury, CHRISTINE, and you better watch what you say, cause she's real sensitive.
Halloween • TCS-005
We've reached the end of an era. With this episode, we can no longer endlessly taunt Jake for one of the most shameful cinematic sins ever confessed on the War Starts at Midnight and The Carpenter Shop, because today Jake finally watched John Carpenter's Halloween! Listen as we analyze this indie horror juggernaut, discuss the what does (or doesn't) make The Master of Horror a certified auteur and debate who would win in a fight to the death between R.J. MacReady and The Shape.
Dark Star • TCS-004
This transmission was recorded 20 years ago on a spaceship blasting through the cosmos and only recently found its way to Earth. It is the private audio diary of two podcasters known as Beardo and Crawdaddy - two intergalactic podcasters with one mission: seek out and discuss every single film in director John Carpenter's canon. This entry is entitled: "Dark Star," and appears to be a conversation of the director's earliest know piece of feature-length filmmaking.
In the Mouth of Madness • TCS-003
The Dudes critique Carpenter's cosmic horror flick In The Mouth of Madness! Does the trio get turnt over Carpenter's insane spectacle? Is the final film in the "Apocalypse Trilogy" a Lovecraftian let-down? Does it even matter what we thought because none of us actually exist and reality is a cruel illusion and we're all just tiny mites on Cthulhu's tentacled big toe...find out! *PLUS* Chris continues The Summer of Sours with a crazy complex ale that will either seduce your senses or drive...
Prince of Darkness • TCS-002
The Dudes descend to the seventh layer of the cinema to review PRINCE OF DARKNESS! Is the second film in John Carpenter's "Apocalypse Trilogy" a heck of a good time - or does it deserve to stay buried in the bowels of movie hell (a.k.a. the $5 bin at Walmart)?
The Thing The Carpenter Shop – Episode 01
To celebrate the launch of our new limited series, THE CARPENTER SHOP, we're re-broadcasting our special Halloween 2016 review of John Carpenter's THE THING.

Episode 50 – The Thing (Short Rounds)
October 31st can only mean one thing... time for a spooky special Short Rounds episode! Jake pays penance for his coldest War Crime - John Carpenter's The Thing. Do the guys see the human in this film, or is it as cold and alien as creepy crawly head-spider? Grab a flamethrower and handful of dynamite, because there's a 75% chance at least one of us has been infected by the intruder organism!
