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.
