    Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde (1995)

    I have to bump this up. I randomly thought of this movie last night. I remember seeing it in theaters. This would be an amazing show.
  2. This movie opens all sorts of questions about killing werewolves. So correct me if I'm wrong, the sister is killed by a silver bullet, the bullet is removed and she comes back to life in her casket? Does the silver have to be lodged in the body forever for the werewolf to stay dead? Also they get real lazy with the idea that stabbing a werewolf with a silver blade also does the trick. It kind of makes werewolves just slightly stronger the actual humans. And shouldn't you stab them with the blade and leave the knife or axe lodged in there? The guy in the full on denim is just plowing down werewolves with a shot gun. So are those shotgun shells filled with silver fragments? Also, how did he get those guns to Transylvania anyway? What was the gun policy on planes in the 80's, could you just check them like regular baggage? Denim guy is just an absolute maniac, when Christopher Lee shows up and fills them in on his plans to stick a silver stake in his sister he just says in the most cold, unemotional way, "I'm gonna kill that son of a bitch." and follows him to the cemetery with not 1 but 2 guns to straight up murder him.
  3. Yes Cam Bert! I can't believe it wasn't mentioned in the show. Was this just some random New Wave band based out of LA that got an offer to play a werewolf orgy in Transylvania and were like, "well, it's a good paying gig, can't turn that down." There also seemed to be a bunch of non werewolf, or at least werewolf in human form punks attending the orgy just to listen to the band, how does that work? Was this a ticketed event? Maybe this band is like Phish and has a massive group of fans that just follow them on tour to any venue or sex party they might play? It's possible they were just splicing together footage of the orgy and the band back in LA. Also as far as orgies go, I can get behind seeing people in human form boning, I can even maybe get into full on werewolves boning, what I can't get into is a whole group in that mid transformation phase participating in a full on orgy. That was tough to watch. This whole movie had Sleepwalkers feel to it.

    Episode 174 - Jason X: LIVE!

    I'm having a slow work day an I'm hooked on this Friday the 13th wiki. I think maybe you guys were a little hard on poor Kane Hodder. He clearly has a soft spot for children and animals - guy just needs to make a buck after being left out of Freddy vs. Jason. Here's an interesting bit I just read regarding Jason Vorhees's feelings on killing children or animals: Whatever his motivations, Kane Hodder believes there is a limit to what he will do. According to Hodder, Jason might violently murder any person he comes across, but when Jason Takes Manhattan called for Hodder to kick the lead character's dog, Hodder refused, stating that, while Jason has no qualms against killing humans, he is not bad enough to hurt animals. Another example from Jason Takes Manhattan, involves Jason being confronted by a street gang of young teenage boys one of whom threatens him with a knife, however Jason chooses not to kill them and instead scares them off by lifting up his mask and showing them his face. Likewise, director Tom McLoughlin chose not to have Jason harm any of the children he encounters in Jason Lives, stating that Jason would not kill a child, out of a sympathy for the plight of children generated by his own death as a child.

    Episode 174 - Jason X: LIVE!

    It's possible that in this movie, every character apart from Alexa Doig were actually really realistic sex cyborgs/robots that have revolted, killed off humanity and continued civilization, just made it a whole lot sexier. Would explain why they're so horny and wear such little clothes, all part of their programming.

    Episode 174 - Jason X: LIVE!

    I read a brief bit about the Jason X novels on the Friday the 13th Wiki. Spoiler alert - apparently Jason has a son somehow and his son ultimately kills him by trapping his clone in an escape pod and sending him to a remote moon.

    Episode 174 - Jason X: LIVE!

    Also I don't understand how the guy in the bed with the lisp would think hear they recovered a 400 year old specimen tagged "Voorhees" and immediately think, "Is that notorious killer, Jason Voorhees?" Based on the last name, he could have just have easily thought Lark Voorhees of Saved by the Bell and Bill Bellamy's classic "How to be a Player." That would arguably have been a better movie.

    Episode 174 - Jason X: LIVE!

    So 400 hundred years in the future and the marines are using guns that seem to just shoot conventional small caliber bullets. The only difference is that they're made of some sort of bulky plastic which just seem like they'd make it harder to carry and aim. Where are the lasers or plasma guns? The only gun that packs any sort of punch is the one KM 14 uses to temporarily "kill" Jason, which seems to be some sort of futuristic low gauge shotgun capable of blasting limbs off a body. If they had that gun in the armory, why not use it in the beginning rather then ineffectively pumping 100's of rounds into him. I feel like Alexa Doig could have been a bit more helpful; she should know you basically have to blow apart or dismember Jason's body, yet she offers no helpful input before the marines go into the cargo hold to get picked off one by one. The whole future world that this movie is based around just seems unbalanced. The weapons seem outdated, the VR seems primitive and makes no sense, the clothes are ridiculous. You're telling me space travel between galaxies is a thing but they can't use auto pilot to dock at Solaris and you have to launch the escape shuttle from a totally separate part of the ship; why not just get in and fly away? Then they have robots for scientific research but why not robot marines? More importantly, given how horny this crew is, why not sex robots? When the pilot,"Fat Lou," hears the group has recovered a 400 year old frozen female specimen from Earth 1, his reaction is basically, "Is she hot?" What the hell? The first thing he thinks is how much he wants to bone this 450 year old person from a different place and time. Build this poor guy a KM 14 sexbot. Why is everyone so horny in the future?

    Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988)

    I saw in an article today that the sequel may still happen in 2018. Just wanted to bump this as Halloween draws closer. This would be an incredible October episode. I love this movie but it's completely absurd.
  10. This was one of the more cocaine fueled films that HDTGM has taken on, and that's really saying something. But clearly it was either written in a hotel room or poolside, next to a mountain of cocaine. The male dialogue in the restaurant was seriously on par with Pacino in "The Devil's Advocate." I'm pretty sure Sidaris just brought that blow up doll to the set as a joke and then was like, "Hey, let's get this in the shot! It'll be funny." I'm surprised the incredibly racist Asian accents done by Rowdy and Jade weren't addressed in the podcast.

    Episode 165 - Ninja Terminator: LIVE!

    What's with the role of throwing stars in this movie? Ninja Terminator seems to posit that each Ninja has a unique throwing star, covered in Japanese characters, serving basically as a business card for ninjas. Both the Black Ninja and Richard Harrison identify each other based on throwing stars thrown by the Red Ninja and blocked by their swords. So did the Red Ninja steel their throwing stars and purposely leave them behind in an attempt to frame Harrison and the Black Ninja in some way? And when the purpose of all ninjas is to be stealthy, incognito killers, why would they use ninja stars that basically give away their identities? Every ninja in this movie sucks at being anonymous, especially Richard Harrison. The Ninja Empire not only knows that he stole part of the statue, but they know his phone number and address. These guys are just downright bad ninjas. I'm not comfortable with any of these guys possessing the supreme ninja power.

    Episode 164.5 - Minisode 164.5

    This movie was not as bad to get through as I thought, of course I was watching it on my phone at work and not exactly paying attention. There are a lot of fights I kind of just listened too. It may be worth it solely for Jaguar Wong though. That guy is great.

    Hot to Trot (1988)

    My mother rented this movie for me when I was home sick in the early 90's. It has to be HDTGM worthy. I think the premise is basically a talking horse who helps Bobcat Goldthwait become a successful stockbroker.

    Episode 159 - Sleepwalkers

    When the Paul, Jason, and June mentioned the theory that Ron Pearlman was potentially a secret Sleepwalker in this film, it got me thinking. When I first saw Charles Grady in his secondary cat-human form, I was immediately reminded of another Ron Pearlman role from the 1987 TV series, Beauty and the Beast. This led to my theory as to how Sleepwalkers reproduce or at least how more Sleepwalkers potentially come to be. What if rather then sexual reproduction, much like a werewolf or vampire, the bite of a Sleepwalker could potentially turn a human into a Sleepwalker? Towards the end of the movie, Ron Pearlman as Captain Soames, has his fingers bitten off by the Mother and he suffers a nasty arm breaking which I don't really think would necessarily be life threatening. So what if Captain Soames survived and was turned into a Sleepwalker. Confused and ashamed, struggling between his demon state and lingering humanity, he assumes the persona of Vincent and moves to New York City, taking refuge in the sewers and subway tunnels beneath the city. Not really knowing the ins and outs of his new Sleepwalker status, how to dim himself or other objects, or how to shift forms, he is perpetually stuck in cat form. When he strikes up a relationship with Linda Hamilton's character in an attempt to feed, he falls in love. This is plausible as it is briefly suggested with Charles and Tanya, Sleepwalkers may be susceptible to love with their human prey. I think this whole movie is just a prequel to 80's version of Beauty and the Beast. Photo evidence below:

    Episode 159 - Sleepwalkers

    This movie was totally a love letter to cats I feel like. They're the undisputed heroes of this film. They really get a bad wrap in life and I, as a cat owner, am kind of tired of hearing it form Dog people. This movie posits that it's basically the mission of all cats to protect virgin women from shape-shifting werepeople. That's right, while they spend most of their days shitting in a box, eating, and lounging on the floor within that one sunbeam that penetrates your kitchen window, they are always on the job, protecting us from Sleepwalkers.

    Episode 159 - Sleepwalkers

    @ Ryan Sz, I do the same thing. I should probably listen but I totally got the same impression that the teacher wanted to blackmail the kid for sex. And I also kept waiting for Lauren Hill's vocals to kick in.

    Episode 159 - Sleepwalkers

    I totally thought Charles Grady was going to be a sympathetic character in this. He kind of seems like he's a kid who really just wants to settle down, make friends, have a girlfriend; basically just the normal teenage experience. Then he basically goes Freddie Krueger on her in the cemetery and starts cracking jokes, "Cop Kabob!" Weird movie. The dance scene at the end was actually really terrifying though. I vaguely remember seeing it on TV as a child and was pretty traumatized.

    Episode 158 - Body Parts: LIVE!

    I feel like this movie was missing an extended scene, maybe at the end where Dr. Webb explains that she'd transplanted the head of her son, Charlie Fletcher on a cadaver, but the cadaver had been dead for too long and it's tissue was breaking down and decomposing and he needed his original body parts which had been temporarily rejuvenating while attached to the nervous and circulatory systems of other "hosts," those being the recipients of the transplants. Then again, why is the torso still being preserved in the tank? I don't know how you spin this plot to make sense. But for a movie that was 80 minutes long, it seems like they could have added one more scene to explain this a bit better. Also what's with Fahey movies including awful Doctor names? Doctor's Larry Angelo and Bill Crashank.

    Absolutely right, I am listening now. I commented after I watched but prior to listening.

    Haha, just listening to the episode now, it seems like they've already picked up on my turtleneck color scheme theory.

    Episode 158 - Body Parts: LIVE!

    Adding to Gillian's point about his Turtlenecks, she's absolutely correct that their use tells a story. When I noticed the prevalence of these sweaters, my first thought was, "why would you cover up that body?" We've all seen Lawnmower Man and it's clear that the man is cut, so why keep a hunk like Fahey dressed in such thick sweaters? Now it could just be that this movie is clearly set during the winter months, we do see a bit of snow in the background, and such sweaters would have been fashionable at the time. But I think it's all about the symbolism. In the accident scene, when Fahey is driving to work, he's wearing a particularly thick white turtleneck. White symbolizes purity, innocence, wholeness and completion. So pre-accident and pre-surgery, Fahey is part of a complete body, one that is innocent and not yet corrupted by the arm of an evil serial killer. In the middle of the film he seems to fluctuate a few times between black and white turtle necks during the scenes he's confronting Remo Lacy and Draper, the 2 other recipients of Charlie Fletcher's evil body parts. In Gothic literature, black represents evil, fear, and death. The back and forth between black and white sweaters illustrates his inner struggle between good vs evil, dark vs light which Fahey battles during the middle part of film as he attempts to hold onto his humanity and pre-accident persona, that of a good person, father, and husband. The final act of the movie features a noticeably dark Fahey in a totally black turtleneck from the bar fight on through the dramatic finish in the hospital where he harnesses his inner darkness for a final showdown with Charlie Fletcher and Dr. Webb. Fahey has been spiraling into darkness throughout the movie and he himself thinks he's lost this inner battle when he writes what appears to be a rather abrupt and out of place apology and farewell letter to his wife after he steals the cop car. However our hero prevails in the end by killing Fletcher and re-claiming the arm for himself. The use of turtlenecks specifically, and the cover up of his neck, I think symbolizes detachment from one's body. His head, or his morality and conscious, float above a body that he doesn't have complete control of and fluctuates between good and evil. It's like a classic Jekyll and Hyde tale with the fashion sense of a 1980's ski movie. Finally at the very end, we see him back with his family, in a light blue shirt, neck exposed bringing a finality to the struggle, showing that his head is firmly attached to his body and they're acting as one; Fahey has reclaimed his body for himself, and becomes the man he once was. Besides the fact that this movie was really awful, made little sense, and was at times unwatchable; there's some brilliant turtleneck symbolism in there.

    Episode 157 - Surf Ninjas: LIVE!

    When I think of the song "Barbara Ann" by the Beach Boys, the first thing that comes to mind is this gem from Saved by the Bell: It's funny that TV and movies portrayed these 1990's teens as massive Beach Boys fans, and not even like the really good Pet Sounds Beach Boys either. At the beginning of Airborne, we also see Mitchell Goosen and his friend walking home singing "California Girls." I guess the writers at this time just thought any teens from California would be obsessed with the Beach Boys. Anyone notice the ninjas in one scene wearing what appear to be actual Zubaz Ninja outfits?

    Dead Heat (1988)

    Yes please. I actually haven't seen this movie and it's right up my alley. This movie would be a real treat. Treat Williams is great, I'd also back any of the Post-Beringer Substitute films. Basically it's Treat Williams inappropriately fighting teenagers for 90 minutes. Treat is really under represented on HDTGM.
  25. I don't really understand the business model for John Mcginley's company. So they charge each country a fee to protect them with their shield but there's only one shield station beaming off of one satellite making it basically all or nothing. I don't see how they could specifically exclude say, Kenya, should they decide they don't want to pay? Are they going to power down the whole thing if one country is late on it's payments? Also, it's not common knowledge that the radiation levels outside of the shield are now safe, correct? So as soon as that shield stations exploded, as Lambert and Virginia Madsen were gleefully walking off to have some quick street sex, we'd be looking at mass chaos and fear on a global level. Anywhere in the world where it was still night would likely plunge into mass riots, violence, and a total breakdown of law and order as people wait for what they believe to be a deadly sunrise, condemning everyone to a horrible death by dangerous UV rays. Places where it's daytime there would be mass confusion and fear as people clamor for shelter, it just seems like maybe someone should have alerted the media to get the word out that it's safe to be outside.
