Yee haw! This episode we’ve got so much merriment you’ll squeal like a pig. First, for this week’s horror movie Monster of the Week we plunged deep into the backwoods and swamps of rural America. And Slovenia. And South Wales, apparently. Listen, every country has their own version of the hillbilly and that’s the theme of this episode. Hixploitation!
Randy talks moonshine and lederhosen with Slovenia’s first horror film, Killbillies (aka Idila). Jesse braved the primitive landscape of 2006 BBC 3 television by revisiting Torchwood Season 1, Episode 6: Countrycide. Melanie wraps the segment with a recommendation of the excellent horror-comedy Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.
Then we attempt to take on the relentless onslaught of news from the happiest investor’s call on Earth. Yep, it was Disney’s Investor Day! Just the sound of that has us filled with merriment and wonder. Enjoy!
