episode 011 – Interview With Ate de Jong

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.

episode 008 – Nothing But Trouble

Jen is once again joined by Mike Rosen to suffer through Dan Aykroyd’s sole directorial credit, Nothing But Trouble! We have nothing else to say except that if you Google the Demi More picture we allude to, don’t do it at work.

This week’s episode will be delayed at least a day, sadly. I recently switched my Adobe software from CS4 (!) to CC, and I’m having to learn an entirely new audio mixing process. In the meantime, why not enjoy the trailer for the subject of episode 8?

episode 007: The Day the Clown Cried

Jen invites author, artist, and asshole Mike Rosen on the show to discuss Jerry Lewis’s unfinished Holocaust, um, comedy-drama The Day the Clown Cried. Thanks to Flemish TV and Australo-German filmmaker Eric Friedler, enough footage from the notorious project has surfaced for us to discuss it. Shoutout to Friedler and the Library of Congress curator who were too important to talk to us.

Mike Rosen is the cartoonist responsible for the webcomic Guttersnipe. He also authored the graphic novel Malleus Maleficarum, available from SLG Publishing, and illustrated Misunderstanding Comics.

episode 006: The Johnsons (1992)

CONTENT WARNING: Besides the usual immaturity, this episode covers a film whose plot involves rape and incest. Use caution!

Jen welcomes filmmaker and burger expert Yfke van Berckelaer to discuss one of about three Dutch horror films, The Johnsons! Yfke provides an excellent survey of the Dutch film industry (it’s not just Paul Verhoeven!) and gives some background on the making of the film, which is a bit of an undiscovered horror classic.

Yfke is a Dutch genre filmmaker who lives in Los Angeles and is obsessed with everything that sparkles and yes, that includes the 80s. She also writes about awesome things for the cult magazine Schokkend Nieuws, and you can follow her burger adventures at www.burgerists.com and @burgerists on Instagram and Twitter.

And when in Los Angeles, be sure to visit Cinefile Video!
