3.17 Orca (1977)

A happy couple have their world destroyed when a greedy drunk attacks their home and leaves a mother dead, along with her unborn fetus. The father survives and makes the misery and death of the one who ruined his life the only thing that can satiate his vengeance…all told from the viewpoint of a killer whale! Captain Nolan played by Richard ‘Dumbledore Prime’ Harris tries everything in his power to avoid coming to blows with his aquatic adversary, even as the whale destroys the town around him. Bo Derek and Will Sampson also come along for the ride because our journey wouldn’t be complete without a damsel in distress and a Native American stereotype! C.B. Smith from ‘Taking a Page’ joins us to talk about the differences between the novel and the film and OH BOY, are they plentiful! Break out the circus peanuts, headbutt a Jaws™ into oblivion, and lead your nemesis toward their icy grave, because we’re breaching into Orca!

M04 Ami Dolenz

Watch out for those skittering blood-suckers, especially that massive Panic-sized one, because we’re bringing you another minisode! We interviewed the wonderful Ami Dolenz as a companion piece to our latest episode, 3.16 Ticks! We asked Ami about her time working on the flick, along with some of her other roles including Stepmonster, Witchboard 2: The Devil’s Doorway, Pumpkinhead II: Bloodwings, and more. So sit back, put your feet up, hit play, and please ignore the infested Clint Howard in the corner.

Make sure to check out Ami’s artwork as well as her children’s book at Amibluebellart.com!

3.16 Ticks

In the woods across from the old campgrounds where Gunnar Hansen battled giant mosquitoes, Clint Howard is using some of Farmer Spivey’s secret ingredient to help his latest batch of super weed grow faster. A barrel of toxic waste spills carelessly through the floor onto some arachnid eggs, causing them to multiply in size and hatch into giant, blood-sucking parasites. But don’t panic—we’ve got Alfonso Ribeiro and Seth Green here to squash them! With an angry reincarnated Hesse from Demonic Toys out for revenge against Charnetski the Brown, some mutated eight-legged freaks seem like the least of their problems! Then there’s those strange science experiments Wayne Szalinski was talking into a tape recorder about—something about a Necronomicon he found in the basement of the cabin or whatever? Uwe Boll also makes his sad return to the show as we take some listener questions. So climb out of that mine shaft, light up a fat J-bird, and summon Simon Bossell’s flaming broom, because we are about to be infested with Ticks!

3.15 Deathdream (1974)

THE NIGHT HE CAME HOME! Happy 4th of July, Dumpster Dwellers! Following our Black Christmas episode last season, we bring you the Bob Clark horror classic that inspired it. After receiving word that her son Andy has been killed in Vietnam, a grieving mother stresses the universe into instantaneously resurrecting him. Be careful of what you wish for though, because that boy ain’t right! Cold, emotionless, and sadistic, the Andy his family and friends knew didn’t make it out of the war. We dive headfirst into uncomfortable topics like family drama, the horrors of war and the people who come back from it, and how exactly a father could screw up so badly. Uh…Happy 4th! Is Andy a Revenant? Is Quan Chi behind this? Will Dr. Loomis finally be of any use? Find out by pulling up a rocking chair and join us in the dead of night for Deathdream!
