The Godfather - For Annual Subscribers

Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob are making listeners an offer they can’t refuse:  a retrospective of Al Pacino’s greatest gangster performances, kicking off with the Francis Ford Coppola classic The Godfather. Did Al have to cut the head off a horse in order to land the star-making role of Michael Corleone? And does Pacino, then an untested New York stage actor, prove to be a contender sharing the screen with heavyweight thespian Marlon Brando?

Beetlejuice - For Annual Subscribers

It’s showtime once again for Betelgeuse… better known as Beetlejuice. (Just don’t say his name thrice!)  The fast-talking “bio-exorcist” made the heads of millions of moviegoers spin when he debuted in theaters 30 years ago this month. Now “co-hosts with the most” Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart dig up this first collaboration between Batman star Michael Keaton and director Tim Burton to see if the zany afterlife comedy still kills.  Listeners can join them in the conga line when they become a Now Playing Patron!

Hellraiser: Judgment - For Annual Subscribers

For the last several sequels, the Hellraiser franchise has been chewing through bad scripts and vomiting the pages all over Jakob, Arnie, and Stuart. Now 10th chapter Judgment aims to break this cycle by employing a kooky new collective of Cenobites - including a nebbish Auditor, a glutinous Assessor, a cleaver-wielding Butcher, and a recast Pinhead (Paul T. Taylor).  Are they guilty of bearing false witness against Clive Barker by pursuing a serial killer with a Ten Commandments fetish? Donate Now to find out if there’s any soul left to tear apart!

Day of the Dead: Bloodline - For Annual Subscribers

A new Day has come!  The third installment of George Romero’s Living Dead saga rises from the grave once more (despite Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart repeatedly shooting the hyper 2008 Day of the Dead remake in the head). Official reboot Bloodline finds a virginal med student (Sophie Skelton) stalked inside an underground military bunker by a lustful zombie (Johnathon Schaech) who holds the key to an undead vaccine.  Will her #MeToo moment result in a medical miracle, or merely leave a rotten taste in your mouth?  Donate today and find out!

Jeepers Creepers 3 - For Annual Subscribers

The Creeper is changing his tune.

But are Marjorie, Arnie, and Stuart more inclined to give the predator the finger for this final chapter of the Jeepers Creepers trilogy?  Donate today and find out how well this long-delayed Victor Salva effort flies.
