Something Wild feat. The Contrarians

May 9, 2021

He may have hit paydirt with his 90s classics Silence of the Lambs and Philadelphia, but Jonathan Demme's mid-80s road movie Something Wild remains one of the late director's most stylish and beloved works. 

On this week's podcast, Julio from The Contrarians stops by to share his thoughts on everything from Jeff Daniel's amazing dad dancing to a credits sequence for the ages, and much more...

Let The Right One In: Curse of the Killer Kitties (feat. The Contrarians)

Let The Right One In: Curse of the Killer Kitties (feat. The Contrarians)

November 1, 2019

Our Vampire season concludes with a chilly Nordic noir about a young Swedish boy who falls in love with a child vampire. Julio from The Contrarians Podcast joins us to talk Stockholm syndrome, incompetent serial killers, CGI cat attacks and more as we pitch sequels for Let The Right One In

Released in 2008, Let The Right One In was directed by Tomas Alfredson and adapted from the bestselling novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist. It was also remade for American audiences in 2010 as Let Me In, starring Chloë Grace Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Both versions are very good, but the prospect of forcing Harry to sit through two hours of Swedish was just too tempting. Tune in to find out how he fared...

Vampire’s Kiss 2: Uncaged

Vampire’s Kiss 2: Uncaged

October 25, 2019

Nicholas Cage suffers delusions of Vampirism in the insane dark 80s comedy Vampire's Kiss. Now most famous for birthing that meme, the entire movie is a campy, unhinged delight that truly has to be seen to be believed. And yet... we were left feeling that maybe it's actually legitimately good? 

Check out our full thoughts on the Cage phenomena, incompetent psychiatrists, hostile work environments and much much more in this week's episode...

Napoleon Dynamite’s High School Reunion

Napoleon Dynamite’s High School Reunion

September 12, 2019

A micro-budget indie comedy with no recognisable stars, Napoleon Dynamite was a surprise crossover smash in 2004. However, it was also highly divisive - and up until now, John has actively avoided watching it. Can Harry and this week's special guest convince him to overcome his prejudices, or will this movie land like a cold slab of steak to the face?

Tune into this week's episode to hear our thoughts on unlikable characters, questionable timelines, inexplicable Llamas and disgusting, disgusting food - plus our usual combination of drinking games, listener reviews and fantasy sequel pitches that attempt to imagine where Napoleon, Kip, Deb, Pedro and Uncle Rico might be today...

Maximum Overdrive 2: Attack of the Drones

Maximum Overdrive 2: Attack of the Drones

August 29, 2019

Stephen King may have written the novels that inspired dozens of iconic movies, but he's directed only one... the 80s gonzo epic 'Maximum Overdrive'.

Even King himself disowns this film as a cocaine-fuelled disaster these days, but could its audacious blend of gore, comedy and heavy metal be due for re-appraisal? Find out in this week's episode, as we discuss overly specific back-stories, terrible performances by future Simpsons actors, the definition of a road twitch and more...
