You asked for it. So we delivered. MORE weird Asian flicks. We invited our friend Don Anelli from the Horror Mafia Podcast to help us digest and upack these flicks from the 80s. They may be a little deeper cuts into the genre than normal. This week we talk about the psychedelic adventure ride from hell called “The Boxers Omen”. Existential horror at its best? This one blew our minds as it's trippy gore splattered our eyes. Next we talk about the gore soaked “Evil Dead Trap”. No, not an unofficial sequel to Evil Dead.

We save the spoilers for last.

Only to be forced to roam the afterlife looking for her kids. We talk about the many varying stories surrounding it. The real life origins of the story, the “La Llorona” sightings, real life copy cats and all the media surrouding this tale.

This weeks Flesh & Potatoes is a double feature from the 70s. We watched “I Drink Your Blood” & “I Eat Your Skin”.

This week we step into the office and then out victorious with a bloody stapler. We take on two “Corporate Chaos” films that on the surface seem to have a lot in common but really are quite different in tone. “The Belko Experiment” which was written by James Gunn the Director of “Guardians of the Galaxy” and directed by “Wolf Creeks” Director Greg McLean. Then we jump in with a bloody ream of paper for “Mayhem” which stars Steven Yeun (Glen on The Walking Dead) and is Directed by Joe Lynch (Holliston, Wrong Turn 2). We pick a winner and even answer a question about which protagonist would be the best choice for survival. It's a bloody office battle that you won't want to miss.
