Predator

Perhaps best known for playing Apollo Creed opposite Stallone in the Rocky franchise, Carl Weathers also had a prominent run in another big-strong-hulking-guy 80s flick opposite Schwarzenegger. In each, he more than holds his own. Thanks to Josh for the suggestion!

Cult of Chucky

Never released to theaters, this 2017 installment struck a perfect tone between humor and horror, which creative director and writer Don Mancini had been refining and reinventing over decades of our favorite possessed killer doll.

Since we’ve already covered the first film in a previous episode, we start things off at part 2, wherein Andy continues to be terrorized by grown killer in a doll’s body. And Charles Lee Ray really don’t wanna be in there no mo’.
