Thirty years before this podcast begins it was a time of darkness in the Monster Squad clubhouse. Fast forward three decades to a time when John and a small band of freedom fighters (Pat) conspired to rid the world of vampires and monsters... and to save mankind from the forces of eternal evil by producing a podcast so amazing that the entire world would listen to it and marvel....

They blew it.

Legend has it, that it was written by the dark ones: NECRONOMICON EX MORTES; Roughly translated...The Book of the Dead. To trace the origin of the Book, we must go a day when spirits ruled the earth. When the seas ran red with blood. It was this blood that was used to ink the book. It was also with this blood that we recorded this podcast. Even though that doesn't make any sense at all. But it doesn't have to... it's Evil Dead II.

She's come to the world of men and we don't deserve her. Much to the surprise of movie executives — but not movie fans — Wonder Woman has been the biggest success of the DCEU so far.

David has a bit of a dysfunctional relationship with his father and — by default — the rest of the human race. As a result, some decisions he made 10 years ago, coinciding with a run-in with an alien race that may have been our creators, has lead him to where he is today: alone on a dead planet, tinkering and learning the flute. Oh... and he's got a connection to a certain xenomorph we all know and love.

Most of our 80s movies have been the nostalgia-filled romps through the sporting world, fantasy adventures, time traveling teens, or the high school hangups of John Hughes... this episode we take a turn into a dark corner of the 80s with Less Than Zero. Based on the novel of the same name by Bret Easton Ellis (writer of American Psycho), this film follows three friends during the winter break after their high school graduation. Clay has gone east to attend an Ivy League school, leaving his girlfriend Blair and best friend Julian back in Los Angeles, where Blair is modeling and Julian has failed at being a record producer. To top it all off, Julian and Blair have fallen prey to the LA drug and party scene. When Clay comes back home for Christmas, he realizes that he might be the only one who can pull his friends out of this pit.


We've got Glass (the sequel to M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable), a little Indy 5, a few other movie news snippets... then Dennis finally gets to gush about his love for Lea Thompson in this movie (or did he really have a crush on Mary Stuart Masterson all along?) It's 1987's under-appreciated John Hughes' film — Some Kind of Wonderful.
