On this week’s episode, we tackle 1988’s truly nutso horror flick MONKEY SHINES, directed by the granddaddy of suspense, George A. Romero. What happens when a quadriplegic with anger issues is paired with a cute Capuchin that is undergoing sinister lab experimentation? Well, one could say monkey trouble, but we’re above such cheap puns here at SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER!?! Monkey see, monkey do, monkey kill a whole bunch of people! OK, seriously, we’ll stop now. But it takes a special film to combine adorable monkey antics with brutal murders and graphic sex scenes. Yeah, you’ll have to listen to this one to believe it.
On this week’s episode we head back to the movies for 2017’s THE BOOK OF HENRY, and how could we resist? It’s a heartwarming family dramedy featuring such staples of the genre as child sexual abuse, negligent parents, terminal illness, interpretive dance, and cold-blooded murder. Yeah, this one’s crazy. So grab a waffle and take a listen! WARNING! THIS EPISODE CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS!!
