In this very very sweary episode, we look at our first movie that has 0% on Rotten Tomatoes - The Ridiculous 6. This alleged comedy western was the unholy product of a deal with Adam Sandler, Netflix and presumably Satan and quickly gained a reputation as one of the worst movies ever made... We find out why. WARNING - this podcast contains very strong f****** language from the c****** start! DIRECT DOWNLOAD - COMMENTARY CLUB 015 - The Ridiculous 6
In a little bonus episode in between our explorations of the Cthulhu Mythos, we have a reading of a short piece by HP Lovecraft. A strange little tale, almost a prose poem, in which we first meet the Crawling Chaos, Nyarlathotep!
It's cult film time again, and this time we are back to the 1980s for a slice of Arnie sci-fi action! Yes it's The Running Man, directed by Paul Michael Glaser - Starsky himself - and loosely based on the Richard Bachman novel, which itself was really a Stephen King novel. Bad impersonations and some very bad language ensues... DIRECT DOWNLOAD - COMMENTARY CLUB 14 - The Running Man
In this episode we continue our exploration of The Mound by HP Lovecraft and Zealia Bishop. Firstly we uncover the history and evolution of what is now called the Cthulhu Mythos - how it emerged in Lovecraft's writings and how it was developed by other authors. And then we explore the links The Mound has to other works in his canon, investigating the strange lost lands mentioned, the secret history of the earth, and cataloguing the eldritch races encountered in the tale.
