This week we’re headed into sequel territory and revisiting Hong Kong’s best supercop in Jackie Chan’s Police Story 2.

Ep. 172 – Police Story

With our spooktacular October fright-fest in the past, this week we look to another genre of films entirely. Get ready for high intensity hijinks with Jackie Chan’s Police Story.

Ep. 171 – Night of the Living Dead

Before they were walkers, they were…well…they were kind of unnamed. But they definitely gave rise to the modern interpretations of Zombies. Let’s take a look this Halloween at Night of the Living Dead.

Ep. 170 – Jigoku

Dr. Zed sincerely hopes there isn’t an otherworldly punishment for getting the podcast up a day late, since Jigoku’s depiction of the bowels of Hell certainly has some apt punishment in store for him. Perhaps the Sisyphean task of editing an episode that never ends!

(Repost) Ep. 128 – Repulsion

It’s the spooky season and we’re taking a look back at one of the spookier movies we’ve watched in the past. Join us for a little Repulsion.

Ep. 169 – Macbeth

This week we’re taking inspiration from the Bard and exploring the tragic tale of one Macbeth. However, this isn’t your average stage production; get ready for the gory Macbeth you’ve always dreamed of!

Ep. 168 – Antichrist

We’ve seen Willem Dafoe playing the role of Jesus before, but how will he fare in Lars von Trier’s depiction of the hell on earth that we all face? Join us for Antichrist.

Ep. 167 – Blow Out

Did you think John Travolta was compelling in Grease? Magnificent in Pulp Fiction? Well, he’s stepping off the dance floor and into the recording studio…as a sound engineer caught in a deadly political game. Will his foil, John Lithgow succeed in his plans? Join us for some John on John action in Blow Out.

Ep. 166 – Saraband

Wait, you thought we were done with the adventures of Johan and Marianne? Didn’t you watch the final episode of Scenes from a Marriage? That was clearly way too optimistic, am I right? So, roughly thirty years (and some weird in-universe aging shenanigans) later, how do you think our (un)happy couple is doing? Let’s find out in Ingmar Bergman’s final film: Saraband.

Ep. 165 – Scenes from a Marriage, Ch. 5 & 6

This week, we bring the sage of Johan and Marianne to a close. Will they reconcile? Is marriage truly the strongest bond on earth? Can Ingmar Bergman produce a happy ending? Find out in Scenes from a Marriage, episodes 5 and 6.
