Join me (Joanna) as I (virtually) sit down with Ryan Lambert for a Q&A about, you know, The Monster Squad! But these aren't my questions. They come straight from the mouths of babes - my babes, to be exact, Milo (8) and Ash (6)! So, if you ever wanted to know why Dracula drives a car or need an explanation about why the Mummy isn't all that scary, you've come to the right place. And Ryan's answers do not disappoint.
And while you're at it, don't forget to pick up a copy of the newly released MS doc Wolfman's Got Nards. It's clearly a must buy if you want to be in the goddamn club.
Disclaimer(s): I used a phone recording app, so the quality isn't stellar, but it works! Also, I had a small coughing fit (not COVID, I promise) and forgot to edit it out. Oops (insert eye-roll emoji here).
Phew - we did it! We finally finished part 2 of our Friday the 13th revisit! In this episode, we look back at The New Blood through the 2009 remake/reboot/re-installment. And then we rank them alllll!
Freddy vs. Jason gets a semi-redemption viewing, Joanna gets tipsy, and we preview a couple now-expired Terror Tweets!

In honor of a belated Valentine's Day, on this most recent episode, we discuss all four (FOUR) Poison Ivy movies! From Drew to the Ice Box, it's a wild ride full of deceit, icky sex, flowery names, and, well, a lot of boobs. Obviously.
We also chat up a couple recent movie viewings (The Terror of Mechagodzilla) and tease the next episode (Stephen King-centric).
Drinking game: Let's get wasted, every time we mention boobs.
We're back and we're kicking off the new year with an episode 2+ years in the making - it's a revisit of the Warlock trilogy! (In truth, we meant to do this topic in October of 2017.) We chat up Julian Sands, Bruce Payne (not Wayne), director Anthony Hickox, and the lost charm of 90s direct-to-video sequels.
Of course, we also talk about recent movie viewings, Twitter picks for recasting the Warlock, and tease the next episode (Poison Ivy?).

Join us this month for a special metal music-minded Halloween episode! We revisit ROCKTOBER BLOOD (1984) and TRICK OR TREAT (1986), before giving HACK-O-LANTERN (1988) a first-time viewing! And, boy, are we glad we did.
We also chat up recent movie viewings a bit -- including some theater watches like READY OR NOT and HOBBS & SHAW (which made for a delightful double-feature, by the way).
Drinking game: Every time a band is mentioned (fictional or not); every time Johnny sniffles.
Yes, we are revisiting all of the Friday the 13th movies and talking about them (as we did with A Nightmare on Elm Street a while back).

Drinking game options: Every time we talk about a final girl or Tommy Jarvis.
Every so often we like to give movies another watch, another go to see if our opinions change. Sometimes we appreciate a movie more (Satan's Little Helper) and sometimes we like it even less (RZ's Halloween 2). So, this week we're tackling two previous genre disappointments: The Video Dead and Street Trash. Listen to see how and if we change our tune on these 1987 flicks...
We also chat up recent movie viewings AND interview our wild kids for 5 minutes!
Drinking game options: Every time we talk about set design; every time we talk about icky characters.
Oh, shit — we’re back with a “new” BP podcast episode! We say “new” because it was actually recorded two month ago in March and has been sitting stagnant, unedited, while life got super-crazy. But here we are!
On this episode of the BP podcast, we celebrate our 10-year wedding anniversary by looking back at films from 2009! But to add some spice to the format, we’re giving out movie superlatives (i.e. best kill, best villain, etc).

Yes, it’s mid-January, but the podcast is back with a rockin’ New Year’s countdown of our favorite movie musical moments!

We do an official countdown where we each pick 5 movies to add to the mix – and they are secret picks with surprisingly (sorta) no overlap!
We also chat about recent movie viewings (Deadpool 2), read some tweets about first movie watches of 2019, and tease the next episode (stupid sexy sequels?).
Drinking game options: Every time Joanna giggles or says something is "of the time."

And we don't mean dieting (I mean, we do, but not for this)! We declare what we want to watch and take on for this year. Movies, directors, genres and more.
We also take a look back at our 2017 resolutions to see how we fared with our goals. Spoiler: it's spotty. And, of course, we chat up some recent movie viewings!
