Welcome back to Flickers everyone. In this edition we dig into a
couple of tasty low budget nuggets from 1981. First up, we discuss Fear No Evil. Truly an ambitious effort, which results in a reach-exceeding-grasp situation. We still found ourselves rooting for this
thing like the little engine that could. Director Frank LaLoggia manages
to create some truly arresting visuals despite a plot that wanders more
than a tribe of hunter-gatherers. Coming in next, we delve into
Evilspeak, a flick that is a textbook example of how to take a tiny
budget and stretch it into something that, while not perfect, is totally
satisfying. With a star turn by Clint Howard and a cast packed with
"hey, it's that guy!' character actors, not to mention a healthy dose
of juicy, practical, gore effects, you will not be disappointed. As ever,

Are you getting too old for this shit? Is your fishing boat sitting in your driveway just waiting for you to finally retire from the force? Are you paired up with some loose cannon oddball hotshot young punk who takes too many unnecessary risks? Friend, have I got the solution for you! Plug in the wireless device of your choice and give a listen to episode 61 of the Flickers From the Cave podcast! In this edition we take a look at two prime examples of the buddy cop movie, well, sort of. Our first offering is 1991's Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man, starring Don Johnson in fine form and Mickey Rourke apparently trying to remember how to act. Although not really a buddy cop flick, our heroes are low level criminals fighting big corporate corruption, it manages to feature pretty much every cliche associated with buddy cop movies. Moving on, we take a look at Tango & Cash from 1989, starring power house duo Sly Stallone and Kurt Russell. With a cast rounded out with an impressive array of character actors, from Clint Howard and Michael J. Pollard to Brion James and Robert Z'dar, this movie had everything it needed to be the definitive buddy cop movie. Everything that is except a script that made any sense what so ever! Faults be damned, these are both way more entertaining than they have any right to be, considering how utterly devoid of common sense they are. If you want to watch a really good buddy cop picture, go get Lethal Weapon or 48 Hrs. If you want to see characters named after cigarettes and an epic super truck versus monster truck battle, turn off your brain and settle in with these two. As ever, please post comments on our Facebook page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.

Welcome one and all to episode 59 of Flickers. On this episode we are looking at three films from prolific genre director Albert Pyun. Right out of the gate we dig into Pyun's debut effort, The Sword and The Sorcerer. An insanely ambitious project to start your career with/ It is done with such youthful exuberance and ingenuity it became an almost instant cult classic. Next up, we look at one of his collaborations with JCVD, 1989s Cyborg. A straightforward post-apocalyptic pot-boiler, it delivers enough foot-face-way action to keep you interested. Finally we check out Pyun's much maligned Captain America from 1990. Filled with cheese in the best possible way, it harkens back to the classic serials of the 30s and 40s much as Raiders of the Lost Ark did. Don't believe what you read on IMDB, check it out for yourself and you'll be happy you did. As ever contact us on Facebook or at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and thanks for coming back to the cave!

Welcome back to the cave everyone! On this episode we slink into the world of spies and super villains. First up, we look at 1966's Kiss The Girls and Make Them Die starring Mannix himself, Mike “Touch” Connors. Featuring some amazingly bizarre 60's fashions and a solid supporting cast, including Terry-Thomas, this is a solid Bond rip off with something for everyone! Then we move on to 1968's Danger: Diabolik directed by Italian maestro Mario Bava and starring stalwart ex-patriot John Phillip Law! With spectacular production values and slam bang action, this is a sure fire crowd pleaser! If not, you need to find a new crowd. Sit back, plug in and get ready for some sixties era espionage action. Remember, leave us a review on Itunes, and thanks again for coming back to the cave. Send us email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or just post a message on Facebook.

Welcome to the Jungle baby! We are back, to close out the year of 2014 by focusing on two films with similar themes and VERY similar antagonists. We start off by looking at 1986's Link, from Australian director Richard Franklin and starring a young Elisabeth Shue and Terence Stamp. Our second film is 1988's Monkey Shines by the one and only George Romero, featuring perfomances by Jason Beghe and John Pankow. Both of these films rely strongly on performances by simian actors. Not since Lancelot Link have we seen apes and monkeys who can really bring characters to life with such pathos and, in some instances, genuine menace. These are both great little films ( no matter what you might've heard ) and we recommend them strongly. Please let us know what you think of the films and of the show by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or leave us a message on our Facebook page.

The topic of transformation is central to the movies in this episode of the podcast. We look at two of our favorites from our youth, starting with 1973's Sssssss, starring the one and only Strother Martin, and Dirk Benedict. This tells the story of a total stoner, who is working with snakes. Working a little TOO closely with them as a matter of fact. We meet a king cobra that would rather we just walk away, and we have our vision obscured by terrible tempra-paint foliage. It is a fantastic little film, with a really top-notch cast and darkness aplenty. We follow that up with 1982's The Beast Within. This was a landmark film from our youth, so we view it squarely through rose-tinted glasses. Starring Ronny Cox, Bibi Besch, and Paul Clemens, it is a tale of a small town in Mississippi where one family makes all the rules and ends up paying the price for their hubris. It has a cast of amazing character-actors and is MOSTLY excellent, though undeniably cheesy. Please let us know what you thought of the show by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, or by leaving a message on our Facebook page.
