Treatment 110 – Tales from the Darkside:The Movie

CatFaceThis week we tackle yet another anthology film, and sadly it does entail a Stephen King writing credit. It’s another cat story…seems cats are his “pet” peeve! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! Ahem…anyway, sorry. As a consolation, we also welcome back Christopher Boerger for another guest appearance on this week’s show.

Tales from the Darkside: The Movie

Joey Lawrence’s kid brother makes an appearance in this one, if you’re looking for a good reason not to watch it. It also features a slew of big name actors…mostly before they had reputations to destroy.

THRILL… as Christopher tries in vain to convince Marc to cover R. Kelly’s Trapped in the Closet!!!

SHRIEK… as Doug thinks Kirk‘s Christian Slater impression is a Peter Lorre impression!!!

YAWN... as the podcast stretches to 80+ minutes thanks to a protracted period of Matt confusing Gargoyles with Goblins!!!

As ever, look to Netflix Instant to find this week’s movie. It’s there. It’s also available free to Amazon Prime members! Check out our store, to find it in the video on demand section. Also, please head to iTunes, and subscribe to the podcast! Write us a review while you’re at it! We need the exposure!

Next Week: We’re going full cult, and watching The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension!!

Treatment 78 – Bubba Ho-Tep

Well, we’re really in it up to our necks this time. We totally screwed up. See when we let our special guest, Jon Cross from The After Movie Diner podcast, join us for this episode and pick this week’s film, we hadn’t counted on him choosing a film that’s actually good! I mean, the show is called Schlock Treatment, bad movies is what we do! But Jon would have none of it. He insisted, and the result is a podcast rife with appreciation, insight, thoughtful commentary, and genuine appreciation for an actual good movie. What were we THINKING?!?!

Bubba Ho-Tep

Yep, it’s our old pal Bruce Campbell, and he’s back in what is arguably his best film (What? I said “arguably!”). He plays Elvis (or does he) and co-stars with Ossie Davis as JFK (or is he?). The battle a mummy. ‘Nuff said. Watch this film!

KARATE CHOP… your preconceptions about our show, as Jon brings some much needed credibility to this “movie review” podcast!!!

TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS… as we reveal what director Don Coscarelli said about the film in a (very brief) “Twitterview!!!”

Lean BACK AND TO THE LEFT… to take in Marc, Doug and Jon covering topics like, American architecture, fans wearing thongs, guys getting choked up, commentary tracks, and alphabetizing DVDs (it’s a long episode) !!!

Yep, it’s a crazy week, so check it out! You can find Bubba Ho-Tep streaming on Netflix Instant, on Amazon Instant Video, or on DVD from Amazon! Check out our store for the Amazon stuff. We really, really, recommend watching it, by the way. It’s just a great, fun, well done movie! And after you do that, head over to iTunes and subscribe to the podcast! More fun stuff to come!

Next Week: This time, our guest is Ralph Santiago III of the RS3Feed Podcast, and he chose a much schlockier film. We’re watching the classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space for next time.
