The battle for the minds of Terror Fiends will be fought in the video arena, and Matt and Jason will serve as your retina, your television, and your raw experience as they comment upon the 1983 body horror, Videodrome. The podcast is now the physical structure of your brains and, therefore, whatever appears on the podcast will be your reality: the behind-the-scenes movie details, the Blondie worship, the copious bottles of beer, the “freaky stuff” and the horror DVD discussion to follow — all fall within your mind’s eye. But be careful. It bites!
There is someone in this room. The smell of death surrounds you while you frantically look for a way out. Who — or what — is in the room with you? Could it be a machete-wielding retard bent on revenge for the death of his mother? Nah, it’s just Matt and Jason creeping through the darkness to bring you the commentary for the 1981 slasher sequel, Friday The 13th Part 2. Follow us to the campfire as we tell spooky stories of movie trivia, underaged girls, the fate of pubic hair, who the real Jason is, and with enough wit and charm to violently drive a spear through your frowny face. So, take that ridiculous pillow case off your head and listen in as we ring in our first anniversary of Terror Transmission with a true classic. Mrs. Voorhees would be pleased.
Rising from the pit of darkness comes the maddening sound of organ playing, each note struck as a glorious clarion call for revenge. Soon, murder fills the mind of the organist, and there is only one refrain to his dirge: as nine killed his wife, so nine must die. You might say he’s abhorrent, but we know him as The Abominable Dr. Phibes. As each wax effigy burns, Matt and Jason will take you through this 1971 payback tale, bringing you plenty about American International Pictures, Vincent Price, various Satanic connections in this film, personal musings, and how not to panic after spilling red wine on an off-white carpet. It’s like a magical drunken ride on a catapulted brass unicorn. Yes, it is THAT awesome. So, tune in or spend an eternity… in DOOM!
It’s showtime! But, there’s more under the big top than just circus acts, smiling children, and cotton candy. The biggest show this night… is murder. And deceit. And betrayal. And… missing arms? The mystery of this perplexing combination unfolds as Matt and Jason shine the commentary spotlight on the 1927 silent flick, The Unknown. We’ll give you all you need to know about Lon Chaney, as well as the usual insight, wit, and off-track delights that Terror Transmission (and whiskey) can bring. Fun for the whole family… if your family is a bunch of maniacs and malcontents.
Welcome to the Tanz Academy, where strange colors and gruesome murders await you. Your first class of the day will be a real killer, so take notes because the instructors will be giving commentary on the 1977 Italian gorefest, Suspiria. You might have come to learn ballet, but you’ll instead get lots of film details, lewd observations, various subtexts revealed, and an uncomfortable amount of ridicule aimed at the most unfortunate of folks. And if that’s not enough… it’s got Udo Kier! After the feature, stick around for the usual chatter from Matt and Jason on what they’ve recently seen on DVD. Sure beats meeting up with… THE LIVING DEAD!

Reports are now coming in of a strange crash landing of a metallic spacecraft deep inside the Arctic ice. Hungry for blood, its otherworldly pilot stalks the barren tundra, seemingly unstoppable. Then, a lone beacon penetrates the harsh weather. Better than the Emergency Broadcast System, it’s our commentary for the 1951 sci-fi spine-chiller, The Thing From Another World. This attention signal is followed by official information, including film background, wine-fueled tangents, sexual innuendos galore, and the horror-driven wit that is Matt and Jason.

The curse of Satan has been placed. And only Matt and Jason can aid you in removing the killing mask and avenging your bloodline through their commentary on the 1960 Bava classic, Black Sunday (also known as The Mask of Satan).

The Kaiju onslaught has begun and Tokyo’s not the only town in trouble. Whether by land or by sky, the monster attack is on and Matt and Jason are there with their commentary for the 1968 suitmation smackdown known as Destroy All Monsters. The roll call is impressive: Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah, Rodan, Baragon, Varan, Kumonga, Manda, Anguirus, Minilla and Gorosaurus. Through an oriental haze of Sake and Plum Wine, M&J give you so much background and fun on this flick, you’ll want to breathe fire and stomp on major cities posthaste. It’s Japan-tastic!
