Note: Celebrating the 25th Anniversary (which recently occurred this past July 31st), Eric Diaz returns (read his article on the film here) and together we talk about the film's influence on other vampire mythologies (such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Twilight), the unfortunate death of Corey Haim (he will be missed), the original concepts for the story and the fascinating sequel that almost was, The Lost Girls.

Subject: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)
Record Date: August 08, 2012, 06:40 PM
Plot Summary: A Valley Girl Cheerleader (Kristy Swanson) discovers she is the Chosen One, tasked with saving her SoCal town from a growing army of bloodsucking undead.
Note: This past July 31st marked the 20th Anniversary of this flawed but fun film's theatrical release, so William (of Crave Online and The B-Movies Podcast) and I decided to celebrate. We discuss the differences between Joss Whedon's script and the finished film, the television series and our thoughts on the film's reception, both back then and today. It's an analytical examination of the film, but also just a heartwarming love letter to the Buffy mythology, eventual franchise and humble beginnings. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the movie on your DVD.

Subject: Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil (2010)
Record Date: July 27, 2012, 02:42 PM
Plot Summary: Two innocent Hillbillies are mistaken for cold-blooded killers, when a group of college kids start dying in random accidents.
Note: Requested by frequent contributor Tysto, he returns to the podcast to discuss this underrated, Horror-Comedy gem. We talk about our mutual appreciation of Alan Tudyk, the subtle nuances of Tyler Labine, the revelation that is Katrina Bowden and the new, creative voice of writer/director, Eli Craig. Mostly though, we just laugh hysterically at this side-splitting splatterfest. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the film on your DVD.
