Ep86 - A*P*E (1976)

TCTT goes to the movies! Joined by JB from The Broken Plane Podcast, we ventured out to Joy Cinema to see A*P*E, a 3-D quickie aimed at beating Dino De Laurentiis' big-budget and much-hyped remake of KING KONG to the screen. Shot in South Korea on a budget of $23,000 in 14 days, this one doesn't quite measure up to the Jeff Bridges one, but does that one have King Kong flipping the camera off? No, I didn't think so. How many 3-D snakes are thrown at and knock over the camera? Zero? Hard pass. JB & TK: https://thebrokenplanepodcast.blogspot.com/

Ep104* - Scream and Scream Again (1970)

We wanted to participate in the Vincent Price Blogathon this year, so we picked a pulpy sci-fi horror movie from Amicus that was new to us and talked about it with guests Rob Hafferman and Devin Bruce. Vincent is joined by Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, sort of, to tell an odd little tale about body-part farming and composite people in the highest levels of government.

Ep98 - Demon Cop (1990)

Matt is joined by regular guest Jacob Balcom and his cousin Seth Garon returns to talk about DEMON COP, the Blood Meridian or The Sound and the Fury of psychotronic auteur films. Demon Cop seems to be the tragic story of a widower who becomes the host of a demon of retribution & changes into a beast with the moon to stalk the members of Denver/Aurora Hills gangs. A virtually impenetrable web of exposition, non-sequitur scenes, and kaleidoscopic plot.
