We're back! It's the start of a new era as we get into the 200's in the cave. Kicking things off are two movies starring the iconic Dolph Lundgren. We start off with "Red Scorpion" from 1988. Directed by show-favorite Joe Zito, it's the tale of a soldier who learns that he has been sent on an immoral mission and who has to find his humanity. It's f…
 
We finally hit our 200th episode! Wow! To commemorate the milestone, we decided to look back at the movies we've featured since episode 100 and rank them. We start with our favorites and end with the ones that we thought were scraping the dark corners of the cave. It's a fun talk with lots of memories and love. Please email us your suggestions for …
 
We're staying close to home for this episode as we look at two films produced here in North Carolina. We start off with the completely entertaining "Death Screams" from 1982. Low budget, but packed with fun, it's a tale of a mysterious killer stalking a small town and leaving a trail of bodies in his tracks. We follow that with 1984's "The Mutilato…
 
We turn our attention this time to two films from Mr. Duke Mitchell. After a VERY interesting career of acting and singing he decided he wanted to try directing so, in 1974, he released "Massacre Mafia Style". He plays Mimi, who comes to Hollywood with the intent to force his way into the local Mafia. It is violent and full of all sorts of distaste…
 
In this, the scariest of seasons, we decided to soften the spookiness with two horror films that lean into the funnier side of the holiday. We start off with 1999's "Ernest, Scared Stupid" from director John Cherry and starring the late great Jim Varney in the role that made him a star. It's a sweet-tempered movie aimed at a younger crowd, but at l…
 
Rutger Hauer was one of our favorites, from Nighthawks, to Blade Runner, to Wedlock, to Flesh+Blood, to Hobo with a Shotgun and countless other films, he left a huge mark on world cinema. We decided to look at two of his films on the show, starting off with 1986's Wanted Dead or Alive, from one of our favorite directors Gary Sherman. It's an action…
 
As we attempt to get back into a more regular schedule, we turn to something that is almost always reliable...the movies that seem at least slightly inspired by the epic Mad Max. We start off with 1988's Future Hunters which mixes the Bible, mythology, Nazis, Amazon warriors, kung fu and everything else you can imagine. All these crazy elements sho…
 
After a VERY long and unplanned break, we are finally returning with episode 193. We had technical issues the first time we tried to record this one, but we succeeded the second time! Our focus for the second attempt was the actor Wings Hauser, who always seems to rise to the top in any film he's in. We start off with 1983's Deadly Force, from dire…
 
In honor of Pride month, we looked at two films that we felt were interesting celebrations of different aspects of the LGBTQ+ world. We don't think these movies are going to necessarily change anyone or make the world a better place, but they are both excellent, thoughtful, and most-of-all FUN! We start off with 1982's Liquid Sky, from director Sla…
 
We bring out the Hellman's on this episode of the podcast as we look at two from Monte Hellman. We start off with the controversial 1974 movie "Cockfighter" and follow it up with the metaphorical masterpiece "Two Lane Blacktop" from 1971. Both films feature Warren Oates, Laurie Bird and Harry Dean Stanton, all turning in strong performances. Cockfi…
 
We decided to return to the work of Canadian director William Fruet this time for the podcast. We start off with "The House By the Lake" from 1976 ( also known as "Death Weekend" ). Starring one of our favorites, Don Stroud, and with a great performance from Brenda Vaccaro, it is a very well-told tale of home invasion which does NOT disappoint. We …
 
We turn our attention to director Jackie Kong in the cave this week by looking at two films from her career. We start off with her third film, 1987's "Blood Diner" which was originally planned as a follow-up to H.G. Lewis' "Blood Feast". It tells the story of two brothers who have the brain of their uncle in a jar and are being directed, by the bra…
 
We return to one of our favorite subjects, the "Regional Filmmaker", focusing on Mr. William Grefe, He produced most of his films in Florida and we had covered another of his films "Mako, the Jaws of Death" back on episode 90 of the podcast. We start off with 1977's "Whiskey Mountain" which stars one of our favorite actors, Christopher George. It f…
 
We recorded this episode on Valentine's Day, with love and romance filling our hearts and minds as we looked at two disparate films where sex and demons are connected. We start off with the light hearted goofiness of 1987's "My Demon Lover" where a woman in New York City is struggling to find the right man until she meets a weirdo who's possessed w…
 
We turn our attention back to one of our favorite genres, the big dumb action-movie! We talk about two obscure flicks from the 80s that have had a bit of a renaissance lately. We start off with 1982's "Kill Squad" where a team of martial artists team up to find out who attacked their leader. It's fantastic low-budget fun. We follow that up with "Ac…
 
Welcome to 2021! We kick off the new year with a look at a dark side of human behavior...road rage! First up is 2004's "Highwaymen", from the director of the 80's classic "The Hitcher" Robert Harmon. Starring Jim Caviezel and Rhona Mitra, it's a big, noisy action movie, that tells a story of revenge between two men who have fast, dangerous cars. Th…
 
We wrap up this shitty year with two VERY entertaining action films from the 90's that both feature the always-fun Robert Davi and also have plots that remind us VERY much of our favorite Christmas movie...a little flick called "Die Hard". We start off with "The Taking of Beverly Hills" from 1991, directed by Sidney J. Furie and starring Ken Wahl a…
 
This time, in the cave, we take a look at two films from VERY manly men. We start off with 1972's "The Getaway" from iconic director Sam Peckinpah. It stars another icon, Steve McQueen as an ex-con who gets back into a life of crime, only to have everything go wrong and he's left trying to get away from everyone who's out to get him. The movie was …
 
On October 31st, we were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of the legendary actor Sean Connery. He was someone that was held in high esteem by all of us in the cave. We decided to do a special show in his honor so we did a bit of a search for some less popular starring vehicles to look at for the podcast. We start off with 1966's "A Fine Madne…
 
It's another sausage party on the podcast as we look at two Disney movies from our childhoods that meant a lot to us. Featuring psychic power, gangs of children, flying saucers and more than a few screen legends, these two films left very large marks in our young, malleable brains! We start off with 1975's "Escape to Witch Mountain" where the villa…
 
We continue our Halloween tradition of looking at films that hit our personal phobias...this time, it's the idea of "eye trauma". We start off with 1975's appropriately titled "Eyeball" from Italian director Umberto Lenzi. A fairly boilerplate giallo with a gloved killer and tons of misdirects, but it is fun and moves along quickly. It also feature…
