Episode 82: The Thing (2011)


For this episode of Schlocktober? Jock(Jams)tober? Sarlacctober? Kyle & Ryan handle another sequel to a movie from they discussed last year “The Thing (2011)” a movie that many criticize for its overuse of CGI and attempts to recapture the magic of a cinema masterpiece. The boys attempt to detach themselves from that classic film and look at the prequel with an objective eye and evaluate it on it’s merits. this is also the second episode recorded in the new Experience Grind HQ 3.0 so you should notice some sound improvements.

Episode 81: An American Werewolf in Paris


It’s Shocktober! Rocktober? Jerktober? Kyle & Ryan have difficulties naming the month of October a catchy theme name, maybe there are some residual effects from #StonerMovieSeptember still hanging around? Anyways the boys get together in a new recording space to discuss the sequel to a Horror movie they discussed last October, the special effects masterpiece “An American Werewolf in London” Does this quintessential 90’s film hold up as the original it tries to emulate and pay homage to? Maybe. (pssssst! probably not)

CORRECTION!!! We state Tom Savini performed the special effects in “An American Werewolf in London” when it was actually Rick Baker a special effects pioneer we discussed and gave credit to in that episode and we got it wrong here, blame the booze.

The boys also discuss their first ethnic kiss and tongue kissing in general, and is it bestiality if you bang a dog while you’re transformed into a werewolf?
