GCU #16: The Birds & The Deadly Bees

GCU #16

The Birds and The Deadly Bees! Yes, it’s time to have THE talk. We discuss the Alfred Hitchcock classic where birds of a feather KILL together as well as a less than buzzworthy bee themed murder mystery that wishes it was The Birds. Plus, how might these films be combined into one shared universe? The Birds vs The Deadly Bees: Winged Justice! That’s how.

GCU #15: Trick or Treat/The Devil’s Candy Cinematic Universe

It’s a heavy metal Halloween with this headbanging horror double feature! We review Trick or Treat (1986) in which a bullied metalhead resurrects his dead rock hero by playing the rocker’s last record backwards. Then it’s on to The Devil’s Candy (2015) in which a hard rockin’ dad is possessed by evil forces to paint some truly metal artwork… but he’s not the only one being influenced by the dark lord.

And as always, we wrap this episode up by figuring out how these two movies could be combined into one CINEMATIC UNIVERSE!

In a future where the line between reality and fantasy, man and machine are blurred… no one seems to know what is really going on. Do androids dream of Martian mutants?

GCU #8: Ants! / The Wasp Woman Cinematic Universe

Ants and The Wasp Woman

Ant-Man and the Wasp hit theaters this weekend and we wanted to celebrate the release of the latest MCU movie. However, we decided to go… a different way. No, we will not be discussing Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. Instead, we will be discussing Ants!, a 1977 made-for-TV movie, and The Wasp Woman, the 1959 Roger Corman low-budget monster flick.

That’s not all! We pulled Jesse over from Grawlix Podcast Prime to join us in reviewing these forgotten cinematic gems.
