“The Poison Rose” Podcast Movie Review

John Travolta in The Poison Rose

The Poison Rose – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 101

“What manner of sorcery is this?”

Disgraced ex-football stars Daniel Barnes and Corky McDonnell reluctantly return to Galveston to review John Travolta in The Poison Rose. An onslaught of private detective cliches crudely formed into a movie-like shape, The Poison Rose is filled with twists but bereft of surprises.

Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss suspicious pills, hotshot hotheads and meth lab security flaws.
