Best Of Season 8 - Hammer Time! The Complete Dracula - 4/9/19, 12.31 AM
5846

Sit back and roll this beautiful sound, it's the best episode of our recently wrapped Season 8, most played and top downloaded!!!

Dangerous Dave and Johnny Spoiler binge-watched the entire run of Hammer Dracula films.

Below is the original episode description:

"And now for your listening pleasure, our complete run on the Hammer Films Dracula series...

Relive the technicolor horror dynasty that brought us the epic cinema rivalry of Peter Cushing vs. Christopher Lee and still inspires horror filmmakers today.

The Binge Watchers have begun to notice an emerging pattern as they sludge through these sequels buried deep in horror film history…The ginger always dies, the innkeeper knows too much but is apathetic, and there is always a melodramatic speech during the 2nd act lull before 10 minutes of really intense violence. 

Somehow, Full Moon Pictures’ shared universe comes up and there is a brief side discussion about the Subspecies vampire series and The Vampire Journals.

As our exploration of Hammer’s Dracula series winds down, John finds a Dracula movie Dave actually likes.  And they question the choices Van Helsing’s granddaughter, Jessica makes."

That Serial Killer Movie With Matt Dillon - Binge-Watchers Podcast #229
1952

Disclaimer: We discuss a really dark movie from Sweden that you can’t unsee.

Remember that time Matt Dillon played a serial killer in a Lars von Trier movie? And that movie stirred up some controversy with critics and audiences.  Let’s relive the good times, shall we…

House That Jack Built:

“In five episodes, failed architect and vicious sociopath Jack recounts his elaborately orchestrated murders -- each, as he views them, a towering work of art that defines his life's work as a serial killer in the Pacific Northwest.”

646

Just a quick bite while we watch The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot.
And take a master-class in acting from Sam Elliot.
Watch what he does in a kitchen.
Sitting in a kitchen.
Waiting for coffee to brew and discussing the nature of heroes.
In a F@#king kitchen.

The Movie:

Decades after ending World War II by assassinating Adolf Hitler in an undercover operation, unsung American hero Calvin Barr is called upon by the government to hunt down the fabled Bigfoot, the carrier of a deadly plague that could destroy humanity.

The Review:

More sentimental than savage.
