An all Prime Screaming installment of 3D this week as we review...
BURKE & HARE, a black comedy from 2010 directed by John Landis and starring Simon Pegg, Andy Serkis and Isla Fisher
THE EVIL CLERGYMAN, a little oddity - one third of a movie originally titled PULSE POUNDERS that loosely adapts a Lovecraft story and stars Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton
and finally, TRAIL OF THE SCREAMING FOREHEAD, another absurd masterpiece of comedy horror from Larry Blamire.
We also cover a bit of news, the Pick Of The Pod and beer - as usual! NOTE: We had to move my recording space out of the Fortress Of Smallitude thanks to winter finally arriving here in the Rockies and this episode was recorded while I'm still dialing in the sound in the new space, so I sincerely apologize for the odd sound of this week's episode.
0:00 - Intro and Opening
04:51 - DRINK CHECK!
Drink Of The Week: Pumpkin, You're Dating An Asshole by Bearded Bastard Brewing
This was a small batch growler of beer from our friend Mike, the Bearded Bastard himself. The pumpkin was subtle and blended with the banana flavor of the hops, but the spice mix was dead on. We enjoyed it a lot - Thanks for the beer, Mike!
07:19 - NEWS!
Not a lot to cover here - I've started cutting a lot from this segment lately, because so much can be found from other sites like Bloody Disgusting and podcasts, so we've decided to only really discuss things that are of a specific interest or that we think fall under the radar. (Or items that I think will get Devon excited/pissed off.) This week those items are the weird trailer for KONG - SKULL ISLAND, new casting for the HAN SOLO SOLO movie and the Gremlins Vinyl OST from Mondo. WHICH IS STUNNING.
PRIME SCREAMING REVIEWS!
9:20 - BURKE & HARE (2010)
No real spoilers of note here, but we may discuss a few plot points of note. The movie is based loosely off of historical events. So read up.
Kris - 6.5/8
Devon - 7/8
We found this a fun movie - lots of dark, black humor, some great slapstick performances, amazing costumes and sets. Possibly our favorite Landis film in a long time. We watched Burke and Hare on the SHUDDER Channel on Amazon Prime.
6:40 - THE EVIL CLERGYMAN (1988)
Mild Spoilers - This is a half hour film about an evil clergyman based on a Lovecraft story - the plot is pretty much all there.
Ratings: I.... Failed to write it down - we both enjoyed it though. And there's a rat familiar with a human face doing some butt cuddling. We watched this on the FULL MOON Channel on Amazon Prime.
45:52 - TRAIL OF THE SCREAMING FOREHEAD (2007)
- No Spoilers of note here either, but just because the absurd plot of this movie has to be experienced and some mild spoilers don't affect that.
Ratings: (On the B-Movie Scale)
Devon: Liked it but never rated it. Because he's a rebel.
We love the quirky world these movies take place in. They aren't for everyone, but if you've seen Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, or love campy old school schlock, movie serials, B-Movies, etc, you'll probably find a lot to enjoy in Blamire's films. This was on the SHUDDER Channel on Amazon Prime.
1:06:06 - PICK OF THE POD!
- Kris: Westworld
- Devon: A reevaluation of EVENT HORIZON (Which he used to hate)
