Spookies – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 91
“Look at me! I’m Duke the horny ghost.”
Beloved cock-caster Daniel Barnes and accomplished John Jay impressionist Corky McDonnell devour the 1980s horror smorgasbord of Spookies. It’s overstuffed and pointlessly convoluted in a good way, a go-for-broke horror buffet that offers some surprisingly good monster effects and some unsurprisingly abysmal acting and writing.
Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss comedy relief puppets, werecats, and Connecticut coke party casual.

Ryan’s dare: “This is the criminally underrated obscure schlocky movie that delivers everything you wanted (and even that which you didn’t know you needed) out of a horror B-movie! Prepare to witness a monstrous creature-effects extravaganza, a sheer spectacle of love for the American horror film! It’s possibly the most lovable hot mess of a horror movie ever, and you will love every second of it!”
