Episode 101 - The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking

And so...we begin our second hundo with a rough and mean selection of films. We start off with 1977's Hitch-Hike, starring Franco Nero and David Hess. It tells the story of a vacationing Italian couple visiting America and running into a sadistic villain on the side of a lonely road. They pick him up and things go VERY badly. We follow that up with the 1974's sensational Rabid Dogs, from Italian maestro Mario Bava. This is the tale of a group of very bad men who commit a vicious robbery, kidnap a woman and end up hijacking a car with a man and his son on their way to the hospital. Things go VERY badly after that.  We finish up the episode with the truly outstanding When You Comin' Back Red Ryder from 1979 and starring an impressive cavalcade of stars.  Red Ryder is a very hard to find film, but we hope you'll make an effort, since it is such a singular and impressive piece of cinema.

Episode 100 - And The Winner Is

On this landmark episode, after 7 years of yammering on and on about weird movies, we decided to pause and reflect on where we've been.  We made lists of our favorites from the show, and also the ones we most despised.  Listen in as we go through them and present our foggy memories.  Rose-colored rear-view mirrors are certainly in evidence frequently during the discussion.  Please let us know what you thought of the show by writing to or or just post a message on the Facebook page.  While you're at it, why not pop over to iTunes and leave us a rating and review ( 5 stars please ), so we can spread the word to more weirdos out there.
