The Deadly Spawn

The Deadly Spawn

big gaping mouth of teeth

This homage to B-Movie sci-fi films of the 50s becomes the very definition of a “creature feature”: An entire film centered gratuitously around a big, ugly monster and little else. Back when this rare and gritty low-budget gore-fest beckoned from the video store shelves, neither of us had a chance to see it. Thank you, Internet.

    Hi guys! I just wanted to say that I love your podcast and have made my through your back catalog like a Crite chews through disposable extras.

    I recently watched (to the general annoyance of my family) Death Bed: The Bed That Eats. If you still do requests or whatever I’d love to hear your take on the best bad movie ever.

      Hi Joel! Thank you for the message! The title alone sounds crazy. I will add it to our list. At one point, I suggested to Craig that we do a theme month of “killer objects” horror, like The Lift, Killer Condom, Christine…and this would fit in neatly. Thanks for listening! How did you find us, by the way? -Todd

    I also just discovered your podcast and enjoy it quite immensely, and am in the process of catching up (The way I found it was just typing one of my favorites, Sleepaway Camp, into the podcast search function on iOS). You both seem to greatly enjoy what you’re doing.

    I’d like to request the 1997 cult classic, Cube. It’s unlike any movie I’ve seen, and far ahead of its time. It’s just a really fascinating character study with thriller and horror elements. I’d also like to request the b movie cheese fest, 2003’s Leeches. Literally about an almost always shirtless male swim team being stalked and sucked to death by leeches mutated by steroids.

      Thanks Gary! We made a promise to each other, long ago, that we would stop doing this when it stopped being fun. Here we are, 180 episodes later and counting! Thank you so much for the kind words, and I’ll add those two movies to our request list. Cheers!

    I found you guys on iTunes, I’d just watched Chopping Mall after listening to an episode of the — sadly now-defunct — Horror Show podcast, so I wanted to listen to another take on that insane movie (great episode too by the way!).

    Ah Joel, that’s great! Chopping Mall is one of my all-time favorite episodes of ours, actually. It was so much fun recording that one. Thanks for listening!
