Moustapha Akkad begs Michael Myers to return for Halloween, Michael Myers and Dr. Loomis fall in love Lloyd Dobbler style, Andrew solves the gas crisis, credit card technology continues to perplex, Dr. Loomis stammers a bunch, Michael Myers drives a truck, the Haddonfield School of Witchcraft and Wizardry opens its doors, a small basic continuity error drives both Tripp and Andrew crazy, so many Uber drivers hang out, Tripp pitches a wacky comedy starring Dr. Loomis and some teens, Andrew (briefly) breaks the no politics rule and so, so much more. Plus, Tripp tells his famous vomiting story!

We kick off FOURBRUARY 2017 with Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master! In this episode: Freddie Krueger opens a pizza shop with a very interesting list of toppings and competes in Street Fighter, Tripp plots a wintry Friday the 13th sequel and makes a very specific request about his future funeral, we discuss the viability of nunchaku and whips as offensive weapons, fight over puns, the return of “boy look how sweaty that actor is!” and Andrew gets his groove back.

All this and more!

Out of context quote from this episode “I also started hearing in my head guys playing ‘Wonderwall’ on the saxophone…like every dorm room has a saxophone in the corner.”

On this episode, we ski the K-12 with John Cusack and Curtis “Booger” armstrong in Better Off Dead!

In this episode: Tripp gushes about how much he loves this movie, Andrew creates a ghost ski movie, foreign exchange students are treated so, so poorly, and Cusack creatively tries to kill himself!

#61 Amityville II: The Possession

amityvilledt80s

Out of context quote from this episode: “They have a full on conversation that includes the line ‘Mommy doesn’t want to make love to Daddy anymore.’ What? What? Why? *Vomit sounds*”

We recorded this episode wayyyy back at the beginning of 2016, and were waiting to time it up with the release of Amityville: The Awakening, but it got moved for the fifth time and we gave up!

Just what’s needed to have an exorcism? Why is there a major incest subplot? Why is there a random fourth act? Who decided to have a seriously abusive dad? Plus, the one-off return of Hot Tag Taglines!

#60 The Christmas Gift

Out-of-context quote from this episode: “We mention that at least once per episode – ‘She’s All That’ – and I feel like we mention it more than most people talk about ‘She’s All That.'”

Folk hero John Denver plays the lead in a typical Christmas movie, meaning a busy city business person visits small town America and learns the true meaning of Christmas. But in Georgetown, Colorado…they think Santa is real!

Just what, exactly, made John Denver and Jane Kaczmarek fall in love? Why is EVERYONE writing letters to Santa? Why is EVERYONE begging this visitor’s daughter to be in the Christmas pageant? How long does it take before John Denver sings (42 mins.)?

All this and more!

#59 Mannequin

Out-of-context quote from this episode: “This is a batshit insane movie. That it exists at all is a testament to cocaine.”

In this episode we discuss the finer points of She-Mann-igans (mannequin shenanigans), Andrew learns about Olestra chips and their side effects, we convince ourselves that our dad was secretly in this movie, and Estelle Getty steals our hearts.
