There's a fungus among us! Well, more like... fungi? Believe me, the only fun guys you need to pay attention to are Matt and Jason as they don the evil sunglasses and hack up the Japanese language with their culinary commentary on the 1963 release of Attack of the Mushroom People. Let your handsome host shoot spores all over you in the form of film background, funny crimes, the Shipwheel Cult, Japanese Gilligan's Island, Matt the Yacht Rock Captain, the loss of humanity, hallucinogenic experiences, Reverse Geisha, exciting slave trader careers, Jason's anti-Gamera rant and other bulbous banter. Now, go on. Give it a lick. It'll make you feel good.  -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Great Cushing's ghost, Matt and Jason are seeing DOUBLE! But this time, it's not the booze. It's the blood-soaked bosoms belonging to the Twins of Evil. Become a servant of the Devil as your handsome hosts travel back to 1971 to bring you movie details, unintentionally filthy names, Matt's twin-dating experience, the Mammo-cam, more teens and their sex and drug riots, Jason's like for lackeys, polite groping, buying hookers when you're old, the Pubic Hair song, and lots and lots of the ol' Kensington Gore. May you find mercy at the seat of our Dark Lord.  -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

There are mysterious parts of this podcast, but the only true mystery is that your very lives are governed by drunken show hosts. And they will be imposing their knowledge upon you in the form of 1980's Inferno. But, Matt and Jason aren't talking about mythology, they're discussing movie background, the passive cuddle, pasta throwing as disapproval, killing off the old, Argento's colors/visuals, predator/prey relationships, the return of the Selleck Scale, favorite Bradys, Matt's house lighting tips for Jason, rats avenging cats, occult architecture and one MOTHER of a lunar eclipse! So, ask yourself... what do YOU believe in? -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

The basis of this scary tale is in reality. And the reality is that, once you check into the horror hotel, you'll be locked in your room with two cloaked gents chanting some ungodly commentary on the 1960 release of The City of the Dead. So, before you're sacrificed on the altar, you'll have some time to consort with film facts, Danzig's child-frightening forehead, metal band names in this film, "Dick"s, city vs. town, TV-watching as social curiosity, girls who wear your clothes after sex, Matt's welding woes, Jason's parrot traumas, the British round-pinchy-face, numerous callbacks from past episodes, the shaming culture and other savoring of heresies. So Mote It Be. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Woe be unto those who play this episode of Terror Transmission as you may open one of the seven gateways to Hell. Thankfully, your ungodly warlocks, Matt and Jason will help you face that sea of darkness while you hopelessly succumb to their cadaverous commentary on 1981's The Beyond. Evil will invade your eardrums as you are struck blind by movie details, Jason's recent trip to Italy, stupid American moviegoers, justifying Fulci, the non-racist implications of blech, trans-whatever, unsettling dentures, Mormon girls going wild, the public humiliation of film financiers, Peter Weller's emaciated doppelgänger and all therein that may be explored. Listen in or you will be cursed forever!  -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Bienvenue, démons terroristes! Join Matt and Jason at the Canuck pub for 19% alcoholic beer, poutine and something called back bacon, all the while questioning just what kind of party this is.

Even if the weather outside is cold and bleak, your handsome hosts will make you toss off your toques and feel elite with some schooling on movie facts, French-French vs. Canadian-French, Matt's strangulation tips, hot bitchy-witchy, nut-cheeking, Jason's sexy workouts, teen movies, weapons and sex, red herring overload, "give me souvenirs" and other ways to get the rich kids to like you.

Dear homeowners. While you were on vacation, we broke into your house, upturned some furniture, got loaded, and played a whole lot of crazy music. But we were so inebriated, we left behind a recording of our criminal commentary on 1971's A Bay of Blood. Your nerves might even twitch if you knew what really went down, including film background, death nerds, the Friday The 13th franchise connection, Countess Cripple, smiling dune buggies, carefree lifestyles, Matt and Jason's broken glass disasters, the evil of realtors, the Rape Sweater, the showmanship of corpse revealing, living in Giallo World and maybe even some skinny-dipping. Oh, and sorry about the bloody spear through the bed. But, we did have a Bava-lous time! Your pals, Matt and Jason. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

It's possible that, by drinking heavily and watching this movie, your handsome hosts might have summoned demons who used to rule the universe to come and take over the world. So spin your metal albums backwards and join Matt and Jason in the fires of their own hideous commentary on 1987's The Gate. It's an enjoyable descent into film facts, heavy metal memories, Matt's VHS capers, the weird kid in the corner, childhood movie crushes, purple camels, rooster hairdos, backmasking, psychedelic ejaculate, undead Harryhausen and other "touching" moments.

From the diary of Terror Transmission: First of April, 2014. At last, our long journey of drunken debauchery has come to this, the cryptacular commentary on 1958's Horror of Dracula. Have yourself some wine because you'll need it as you enter the castle vaults for our "arguably" best movie background, the seductive vampire, stealing gothic home furnishings, Jason's Doris Day hatred, the limitations of being leading men, Matt's love of Lisas, Codename: Hummus, vampire wish lists, cross-pollenating mediocrity and other unspeakable evils. It only remains for you now to await the daylight hours. Until then, sleep well, Terror Fiends. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Seated in the darkened theater, you notice that something doesn't feel right. There's an uncomfortable mood in the air amongst the crowd. But, just who are the audience and who are the actors? It is a question best answered, if at all, in our commentary on the 1985 splatterfest known as Demons. Let your handsome hosts snort coke off your cleavage as they sexily discuss film details, hot girls with ugly dogs, oopsie-poopsie, Matt and Jason's dating tips, skunk-spray birthday cake, drowning ponies, getting lucky in the movie theater, metal in Italian horror, concert destruction tales, cathartic violence, choosing your Argento sister and other instruments of evil. So, don't bother trying to stop the movie. Because we'll see you all in Hell. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

You cannot escape destiny by running away. It lies in the shadows, pale and ravenous, beckoning you to darkly embrace this commentary on 1922's Nosferatu.

You can hear the sound of a van pulling up behind you. The assaultive scent of Naugahyde and Aqua Velva follows as the approaching disco beat arouses your senses. You can't help yourself. You get into the vehicle as the driver pops in another 8-track tape; this time, commentary on 1980's Prom Night. Two handsome hunks in the back are staring lewdly at you and drinking heavily as you hear the chatter of film facts, Canadian slasher movie history, smart people who agree with Jason and the stupid people who do not, cruel kids, Matt's van-tasies, the Lou-nibrow, hot chicks in hot pants, disco vs. rock, the majesty of Slick, advice for teen virgins, why horny kids get killed and other things that are gonna get you. When you awake by the side of the road two hours later, just go home and never, ever tell anyone. No one but you will ever know. Maybe. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

And with that terrible rhyme comes their commentary on this 1988 creature feature. So, just in case God doesn't show (and he won't), enter the witch's lair and sit a spell while your handsome hosts dig up their deepest thoughts on film background, a salute to our Italian-American friends, douchebags with headbands, city kids invading the rural areas, the ubiquity of denim in '80s cinema, the gaping terror of Bundt cakes, gender ambiguity in monsters, names you can't take seriously, Pumpkinhead's black metal makeover, the evolution of music subculture chicks, and other things that'll scare the piss out of you. For each of man's evils, a special demon exists. And this one stinks of booze and off-color jokes. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com
