We attempt again this year to bring you as many horror reviews and Halloween rentals as possible in a 90 minute format. The Death by DVD crew will trade off list after list of movies for you and your loved ones to check out on All Hallows Eve. Sit back with your kids, remove all razors from apples, de-roofie their roofied candy and turn the lights down low; cause you need to be prepared as two basement dwellers do you the public service of filling your Netflix cue for the next 6 to 8 months. And we promise, not a mention of Michael Myers....You do realize our promises mean about as much as a calculator means to Zerah Colburn, right?
Part 2 of our Halloween Halloween special. In this episode, we'll conclude the series by covering Halloween 5-8. That's right, the gunslinger in black all the way to Busta Rhymes. Rob Zombie's films will not be included seeing how they are remakes, and not part of the original series of 8. Tune in and be sure to keep an eye on your little brother who's dressed in the clown outfit.
This week Death by DVD welcomes returning guest Mr. Moose, who has personally selected the line up of classic monster movies we will be covering this week. The Death by Dvd crew puts on their favorite black leather jackets, penny loafers and argue on who's going to get to be Rudy in our on personal Monster Squad. We cover the whole box of Monster Pops discussing, Todd Browning's Dracula, James Whale's Frankenstein, Jack Arnold's Creature from the Black Lagoon, Karl Freund's The Mummy, and of course James Whale's The Invisible Man. We'll strap on our best plastic Batman masks and try not to cut our tongues with the mouth slit as we talk about classic by anyone's standards.
Since it's the time of year where we all take stock of our lives and resolve to be a better person; and what better way to celebrate this than to talk about the most mentally complete individual in the world, Michael Myers. That's right, it's Halloween, and we are talking about...well, Halloween movies. In the first of a 2 part special for this month, we buy our Greyhound tickets to Haddonfield, Il and crank up the B.O.C. We'll be talking Halloween 1-4 (to be followed in part 2 with 5-8)and the myth of, and the myth that surrounds Michael Myers. And yes, we will be talking Halloween 3 (the night no box office receipts came home) even though it contains no Myers. Be sure to tune in with your phasers set to laughter (now that was arch).
Considering it's the season, we here at Death by DVD would like to bring one of our most classic horror actors to front and center. Vincent Price may have only have been an actor, but through his performances over the years, Price established himself as a horror icon in a league with Dracula and Frankenstein. Price may have died damn near 20 years ago, but he remains a staple and a mainstay in the horror genre. This week we do a retrospective of some of Price's greatest films and performances. We discuss Abominable Dr. Phibes, Dr. Phibes Rise Again, Theater of Blood, Last Man on Earth, and Comedy of Terrors.
We just didn’t give a fuck in this show. Tired of all the whiny cry baby ass opinions that were flying around lately. We hit feminism with both fists, and stated that in MY opinion all Feminism and “Menisim” is doing is hurting gender relations. Feminists and Feminism is reverse discrimination. It’s ok to shit talk men, but don’t let a man talk shit about a woman. You feme-nazi’s may be saying FUCK YOU! Well, fuck you too!
I read a news story yesterday before the show that ICP (Insane Clown Posse) has come out claiming to be Evangelical Christians. I for one am calling Bullshit! Where is Penn & Teller when you need them. Sure their lyrics might have hidden meanings, but you can find hidden meanings in almost anything (daed si luaP).
There was also a story about a Pennsylvania Judge who is currently being branded as racist for saying that the white defendant in a recent case was offered a lighter plea bargain than a black defendant would have been. I feel he was a 100% correct.
What the hell is wrong with Southern Baptists? I found a story about this one holy roller who says Yoga is a disgrace to god. Seriously!? Why would you want your wife nice and limber for that baby making sex? Not to mention being of still mind and body for all your berating and belittling. Besides anything Missionary Style is just lame and boring.
Ladies, you have been saying for years that size doesn’t matter well one high school would like to beg to differ. Worried that their team would get hurt by the opposing team’s size difference, a Rhode Island school backed out of a game with a Massachusetts school. All I know is that those players are NEVER going to live that down. Just imagine how hard it’s gonna be to get a date after this.
Finally, in a move that seems counter productive. Budweiser and several other beer distributors have donated money to defeat Prop 19 (full legalization of marijuana). Anyone who knows how pot works and what it is used for medicinally would realize that it helps with nausea. What happens when you drink too much? You get nauseous and possibly vomit, so it stands to reason if they banded together that they’d help folks drink more.
At Death by DVD we have priorities alright. We have needs and wants. We need affection and female accompaniment. That's why it's ladies week here at Death by DVD. The week where we try our hardest to...well...well to get laid. And that's why we hand selected a list of titles sure to get us all kinds of action in the lady department. It's a list of titles that females are MOST likely to respond to. It's corpse bangin' week on Death by DVD (and no this isn't what my girlfriend says it's like to do me). We dig into the deep dark world of Necrophiliaplotation with a selection of movies all involving intercourse with a member of the opposite plane of existence. This is not a "pretty" topic, and we don't even particularly "like" most of the movies we'll be covering this week, but it's a film topic we have yet to discuss on this show. It was bound to come down to this sooner or later, so screw it, sooner. Nekromantik 1 and 2, Deadgirl, Aftermath, and Lucker the Necrophagous will all be featured items. So, we expect all sorts of great feedback from the ladies on this one, because in NO way is talking about this subject creepy, sick or disturbing. Right?....right....well hopefully.
Along with those three topics, we end up giving some sage like advice concerning tattoos. I also mention my trip to Cloverland Tattoo Company and the video that came from it which I’ll post further down this blog. We also give an impromptu math lesson and teach everyone that 7×13=28.
We had more fun than should legally allowed. I can tell you how grateful I am to Grim and Ginny for allowing me to do the show from their kitchen table. Sure it’s not my own studio like I had before, but it is a lot more fun having a room full of people to bounce off of and laugh with. It’s been a lot of fun and until we get our own internet we have been told that MWR will have a home.
Make sure you pick up your MWR bumper stickers. We added the price of them to the store page (I spaced originally). The price includes the cost of postage to mail them to you. You can see one of them on my laptop in the above image. They are black with white text, nice and simple and slightly elegant.
What happens when the government/big business contaminants our water with it's pollution, chemical and or medical waste, radioactive slime, mercury, DDT, face burning acids, atom bombs, swamp and mine gasses, petroleum run off, MSG, fairy dust and paint thinners? Mostly we all just get cancer and die. But if this wasn't the real world (and sadly it is) all of these pollutions and factors would lead to one thing: Nature Run Amok. That's right boils and ghoul....(rustling)....sorry William T. Gaines took my laptop away from me for a sec(yes, I am in Hell's waiting room right now) we will be doing Nature Run Amok movies where in some form or way, nature or nature's friends get back at us in the end. Whether they grow to enormous size or attack us from within, this at one time, only a menace is out to stomp our ass for diddling mother nature. Bugs, Ants, Slugs, and natures fiercest creature will all be coming to this weeks Death by DVD. Hey, when God sends specifically your show The Plague of Locust you do a week about it okay.
