Quickie spoiler warning: if you haven’t seen the Netflix doc Making a Murderer and want to avoid story details, skip minutes 23:00 through 23:38.

Jen and globetrotting co-host Tim discuss a boilerplate Charles Bronson film, 10 to Midnight. This one was helmed by the director of the original Cape Fear and written by the guy who gave us Magnificent Seven, but somehow doesn’t quite meet those heights. It does feature a nude serial killer, though!

episode 010 – Dead of Night

Jen and Tim discuss a classic and sadly overlooked gem of British horror television, Dead of Night. The series dates from 1972 and thus, emerging as it did during a less enlightened time when it came to archiving, only three of the original seven episodes still exist.

The Paranormal Activity parody written and directed by Tim and starring your hosts (!) may be found on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PDSKT9Pc64

episode 009 – Vile Pervert

WARNING: Today’s movie was made by an alleged sex offender and constitutes his own defense against said charges.

Jen is joined by Mike Rosen to discuss Vile Pervert: The Musical. This slice of pure internet was made by Jonathan King, a music impresario and TV presenter turned convicted criminal. If you’ve been looking for the perfect mix of mobile phone video, Oscar Wilde, and sheer unfettered egotism, this will have to do. The entire movie is freely available on YouTube, if you’re either a masochist or just love demented music as much as Mike does.
