“Spookies” Podcast Movie Review

Spookies 1986Spookies – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 91

“Look at me! I’m Duke the horny ghost.”

Beloved cock-caster Daniel Barnes and accomplished John Jay impersonator 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.


Speed 2: Cruise Control (Darcey Self)


This week’s themed cocktail: Werecat Sidecar (1.5 oz. California Distilled Spirits Brandy; 0.5 oz. Rittenhouse Rye; 0.25 oz. Cointreau; 0.25 oz. Grand Marnier; 0.75 oz. lemon juice; splash orange juice; 0.5 tsp. simple syrup; 0.5 tsp. cinnamon bark syrup)

This week’s darer: Ryan L. Terry

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!”

IMDB synopsis: “A wicked sorcerer tries to sacrifice a group of people inside his house with the intention of using their vitality to keep his wife alive.”
