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!
Once more, the terror comes from the skies. But, this time, it’s personal. And you’re going to need some serious help in order to avoid a bloody and violent alien assimilation. So, grab a parka and a flamethrower, and listen closely to our commentary on the 1982 body horror known as The Thing. The plan of attack includes extensive details on the film, personal anecdotes, and enough inappropriate humor to warm up all of your hypothermic limbs. Once the objective is met, you’ll meet back at base for Matt and Jason’s latest DVD viewings. No, we’re NOT f**king kidding! Tune in!
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. Our test concludes with chatter on recent DVD viewings and what’s coming up next. Watch the skies, Terror Fiends!
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). It’s like a succulent Italian feast of evil, but with some perversion and vampirism sprinkled on top. Oh, sweet Barbara Steele’s cleavage, it is delicious! After your gruesome meal, stay tuned for M&J’s recent DVD viewings, and a new listener contest giveaway. Que bella!
The Colony. A relaxing retreat for those in need of escaping the hustle and bustle of urban life. A gathering of supportive and like-minded individuals. A place to collect one’s thoughts… of transforming into a rampaging lycanthropic beast bent on carnage and wild abandon. Yes, it’s werewolf time once more, and Matt and Jason are bringing out their own version of fang and claw with their commentary on the 1981 splatter spectacular, The Howling. All bases are covered: film background, philosophy, special effects, history, boobies… you know, the important stuff. Then stick around post-movie for M&J’s chat on their recent DVD viewings.
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!
He comes from out of the murky depths, covered in slime and waiting to viciously seize you with his cold and clammy hands. He’s tenacious, he’s hungry for flesh, he’s… Jason on a cheap wine-fueled bender at the strip bars? Well, yes, but it’s also an apt description for the star of our commentary’s movie, 1954’s Creature From The Black Lagoon. Guided by two strange men wearing 3-D glasses, your fateful Amazonian expedition will take you further and further downstream to witness all of the fun and fear of this Universal classic. After the film, stick around for M&J’s recent horror DVD viewings and some serious hint-dropping on the next movie. So, jump on in for a swim… perhaps, your very last.
Dust off your terry cloth bathrobes and eyeball pentacle necklaces because it’s time for Matt and Jason to put on the commentary cheer for the 1977 drive-in devil flick, Satan’s Cheerleaders. Through margarita goggles, M&J relay the finer points of ’70s extracurricular erotica with a cheesy devil-worship edge, going deep into the hirsute jungle in order to tell the tale to you fine pre-verts. After the feature, expect listener mail, contest details, and more. One for all and all for one, Terror Transmission has a ball (or… four)!
NEW: Watch Jason make our episodic drinks and introduce EP15’s guest star!
