We stopped in this phoney California town and there was nobody here.” - Michael Cisco, Animal Money

Calling All Units - Three Sex-Repulsed 80s Genre Films

I’m joined by Astrid Budgor to talk about three genre films from the early 80s that thrum with deep-seated disgust and fear of sex. This kind of thing often goes unaddressed in genre fiction criticism, aside from a “woah, weird!“, so I’m delighted we had this discussion. The three films are Scream For Help, Butcher Baker Nightmare Maker and Incubus

Calling All Units - Some Instances Of Physical Pain I Have Experienced

"No doubt, leave a rapper in a body cast
And wonder what he was doing while we was in a karate class
Snotty ass, it's really like he was a white-belt
Right before he "night-night" ask him how the light felt" - Viktor Vaughn, Vaudeville Villain
