On the mean streets of New York City, the danger is very real: freaks, junkies, perverts, thugs, weirdos, and the biggest bloodsucker of all — Count Dracula! He’s in town, and he’s looking for love in all the trendy, sex-crazed, disco dance clubs. So, while you’re freaking out in a bathroom stall on too many quaaludes, Matt and Jason will try to talk you down with their commentary on the 1979 comedy horror flick, Love At First Bite. Just play it real cool as we drive our stakes into a brief history of comedy in horror, slob punching, pretty stewardesses, the “Irene” story, Richard versus Dick, neurosis with chutzpah, the perils of excess, Halloween costume decision making and other life-draining matters. For those who take their podcast on the rocks and with a twist, this blood’s for you. Cheers and Happy Halloween!

  1. What an inspired selection! I enjoyed it so much that I’ve listened to it three times so far. Might be a personal record for TT listenings for me.

  2. GREAT choice! I loved this film growing up when HBO would play it….a lot. However, I find it disturbing that I’m admitting I had such a thing for Susan Saint James. Yes, I know her chest is the polar opposite of Arnessiaan (I’m going to get that word into the vocabulaary if it kills me), but there was something so sexy about her. I’ll even go out on a limb and admit she was the reason I watched Kate & Allie (shut up), at least until the blonde daugghter grew up and got WAY hot.
