JFD415: Transylvania 6-5000, Alice, Happiness
Gadzooks! It's an insane trio of creepy/weird/silly/horrifying films this week, as picked by our very own Patreon Pals! Listen along this week as we are driven very nearly to the edge of sanity by the demands of our beloved Dom Deluise Dudes.
First up: we review that cult-classic Transylvania-themed horror/comedy with the fun song and the big boobs. No, not that one. It's Transylvania 6-5000 from (1985), and somehow Kevin Moss ain't never seen it before! Shouts-out to listener Mickey for picking it!
Next! The SVANK-MAY-ER vertical theme continues across the month with our review of his first feature-length film, his 1988 adaptation of the classic Lewis Carroll tale Alice. It's like that classic wonderland tale, except everything you know and love has been replaced with rotting dead animal corpses and screaming baby dolls. You'll like it? Thanks, Evan.
Finally! Parker Bowman confronts a hellish runtime, Sean Byron confronts hellish black comedy, and Kevin Moss confronts a hellishly short film role for Jon Lovitz in indie darling Todd Solondz's 1998 transgressive dramedy Happiness as per Joseph's wishes. Will they ever be the same?
All this plus some real creep shit, witty banter between pals, the unheralded return of Shelby the Cobra, extremely extensive Wild Wild Country chats, Parker's memories of partying with dinosaurs and Jenny Lewis, checking checkboxes, a harrowing review of Super Troopers, Parker Bowman is a complicated man of two minds about a film, Skype Boobs, weird looking rooms, the edge of a podcasting axe, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, slime-filled coughs, uber-belches, no rides offered (or taken), minor-key nose whistling, semi-fervent glances, freshly-squeezed gleekspit, genuine fake-bat eyelashes and a whole lot more!
