You better watch out. You better not cry. You better be careful or you might DIE. Because Santa is coming to slay all of the naughty ones. But if you want to stay out of his Bad Boys and Girls Book, you must pay close attention to our tinsel-tousled commentary on 1980's Christmas Evil. There's plenty of spiked egg nog to go around as Matt and Jason sing seasonal songs of movie trivia, cheap toys, scary Xmas myths, serial killers, Fiona Apple, accidental holiday deaths, X-rated cartoons and a few other goodies tucked deep in our sacks. After the festivities, stick around as M&J summarize their latest viewings on DVD. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good fright! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

You are about to enter Hell. A world of torture and fire, betrayal and madness, Matt and Jason, darkness and fear... oh, it will be such punishment. And while you are bound to the slab, awaiting your eviscerating end, your handsome hosts shall comfort you with commentary on Roger Corman's brilliant 1961 adaptation of The Pit and the Pendulum. As the blade swings and slowly descends, there will be just enough time for discussion on movie and director background, American International Pictures, Richard Matheson, preferred torture deaths, classic movie gals worth sleeping with, butt chins, drunken edits, and a number of other painful implements at the ready. When all of the blood stops flowing, M&J will then exit the dungeon and comment on their recent DVD viewings. We have you exactly as we want you! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

It creeps. And leaps. And glides and slides. And then crawls into your ear and becomes the latest episode of Terror Transmission! Feel yourself being slowly digested by the gelatinous commentary for 1958's The Blob. Beware of Matt and Jason's otherworldly details on child retardation, uptight '50s teen girls, bad slang, irritatingly catchy pop lyrics, and an oozing onslaught of movie-related background and trivia. Following the carnage, M&J cool it and then make with the crazy DVD flick chatter. Later, gator! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

It's tough in this day and age to find the perfect mate. Women across the world are longing to experience motherhood at any cost. And that's why we at the Coffin Joe Institute of Eugenics want to impregnate you with a superior child. So, jump up on that examination table and let Matt and Jason put the evil seed in you as you weave in and out of consciousness, shaking and crying to the sound of their commentary on the 1964 Brazilian cult favorite, At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul. The anesthesia might smell like rum, but you'll soon forget all that as swirling images of Sepultura, blasphemy, Catholicism, tarantulas, Nietzsche, and spooky bearded characters fill your head. When it's all over, stagger into the waiting room as M&J share their thoughts on recent DVD viewings. Yes, we'll even pay the doctor's bill. Que gostoso! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Only true Terror Fiends will rule the apocalypse and your headbanging hosts will be there alongside them, raising the horns in commentary salute to the 1986 metal horror offering, Trick or Treat. Prepare the flaming Jack-o-lanterns as Matt and Jason take you on a musical battle of band trivia, censorship, music discovery as a kid, backmasking, metal nerds, and the answer to the eternal question: which one is quicker, wine or whiskey? Following the curtain call, M&J discuss their most recent movie viewings, and maybe a rant or two in there as well. One thing is certain: These evil podcasters have just got to be STOPPED! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Who calls this movie from out of the Pit?! It's Matt and Jason, you silly blasphemers! So, approach the altar as they unfurl the ancient scroll and read you their caustic commentary for the 1975 drive-in depravity, The Devil's Rain. Wear your best robe and bring a chalice full of quality swill because M&J will be seriously invoking such maligned subjects as Satanism and the Church of Satan, facial hair supremacy, "The Shat," Scientology, and movie/mob ties, plus plenty of saucy talk. After this extreme test of faith, stick around for Matt's and Jason's latest DVD viewings. In Nomine de Terror Transmission... we bestow this infernal episode upon you! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

You'll have plenty to be afraid of before this episode is over. And that's because Matt and Jason will be putting electrodes to foreheads for the 1931 groundbreaking horror classic, Frankenstein. Celebrate this precious new life brought into a cruel and undeserving world by joining your handsome hosts for chatter on Boris Karloff, Universal films, the Mary Shelley novel, the joys of drinking, the meaning of life, battle scars, foursomes and other sordid affairs. After M&J have laid this one to its final resting place, keep listening as they bring you their thoughts on recent DVDs seen. It's alive, it's alive, IT'S ALIVE! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Having a cat in your home for the first time involves more than you think. Cats are not necessarily the cuddly creatures some people imagine and you need to consider several things before sharing your abode with a feline: food costs, spaying or neutering, vaccinations, romantic jealousies, vicious attacks, brutal murderous rages, etc. Matt and Jason would like to help you through the transition with their commentary on the 1942 horror noir creeper, Cat People. Curl up in a ball and play with some yarn as M&J deliver the inside scoop on this Val Lewton classic, as well as pertinent discussion on crossdressing, public ogling, shoulder pads, wine, cats vs. dogs, and assorted obscenities. After the feature, zone out with some catnip as your hosts chat about their latest DVD viewings. Truly, a transforming experience. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

The battle for the minds of Terror Fiends will be fought in the video arena, and Matt and Jason will serve as your retina, your television, and your raw experience as they comment upon the 1983 body horror, Videodrome. The podcast is now the physical structure of your brains and, therefore, whatever appears on the podcast will be your reality: the behind-the-scenes movie details, the Blondie worship, the copious bottles of beer, the "freaky stuff" and the horror DVD discussion to follow -- all fall within your mind's eye. But be careful. It bites! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

There is someone in this room. The smell of death surrounds you while you frantically look for a way out. Who -- or what -- is in the room with you? Could it be a machete-wielding retard bent on revenge for the death of his mother? Nah, it's just Matt and Jason creeping through the darkness to bring you the commentary for the 1981 slasher sequel, Friday The 13th Part 2. Follow us to the campfire as we tell spooky stories of movie trivia, underaged girls, the fate of pubic hair, who the real Jason is, and with enough wit and charm to violently drive a spear through your frowny face. So, take that ridiculous pillow case off your head and listen in as we ring in our first anniversary of Terror Transmission with a true classic. Mrs. Voorhees would be pleased. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Rising from the pit of darkness comes the maddening sound of organ playing, each note struck as a glorious clarion call for revenge. Soon, murder fills the mind of the organist, and there is only one refrain to his dirge: as nine killed his wife, so nine must die. You might say he's abhorrent, but we know him as The Abominable Dr. Phibes. As each wax effigy burns, Matt and Jason will take you through this 1971 payback tale, bringing you plenty about American International Pictures, Vincent Price, various Satanic connections in this film, personal musings, and how not to panic after spilling red wine on an off-white carpet. It's like a magical drunken ride on a catapulted brass unicorn. Yes, it is THAT awesome. So, tune in or spend an eternity... in DOOM!   -- www.terrortransmission.com  -- www.purgingtalon.com

It's showtime! But, there's more under the big top than just circus acts, smiling children, and cotton candy. The biggest show this night... is murder. And deceit. And betrayal. And... missing arms? The mystery of this perplexing combination unfolds as Matt and Jason shine the commentary spotlight on the 1927 silent flick, The Unknown. We'll give you all you need to know about Lon Chaney, as well as the usual insight, wit, and off-track delights that Terror Transmission (and whiskey) can bring. Fun for the whole family... if your family is a bunch of maniacs and malcontents.  -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Welcome to the Tanz Academy, where strange colors and gruesome murders await you. Your first class of the day will be a real killer, so take notes because the instructors will be giving commentary on the 1977 Italian gorefest, Suspiria. You might have come to learn ballet, but you'll instead get lots of film details, lewd observations, various subtexts revealed, and an uncomfortable amount of ridicule aimed at the most unfortunate of folks. And if that's not enough... it's got Udo Kier! After the feature, stick around for the usual chatter from Matt and Jason on what they've recently seen on DVD. Sure beats meeting up with... THE LIVING DEAD! -- www.terrortransmission.com  -- www.purgingtalon.com

Once more, the terror comes from the skies. But, this time, it's personal. And you're going to need some serious help in order to avoid a bloody and violent alien assimilation. So, grab a parka and a flamethrower, and listen closely to our commentary on the 1982 body horror known as The Thing. The plan of attack includes extensive details on the film, personal anecdotes, and enough inappropriate humor to warm up all of your hypothermic limbs. Once the objective is met, you'll meet back at base for Matt and Jason's latest DVD viewings. No, we're NOT f**king kidding! Tune in! -- www.terrortransmission.com  -- www.purgingtalon.com

Reports are now coming in of a strange crash landing of a metallic spacecraft deep inside the Arctic ice. Hungry for blood, its otherworldly pilot stalks the barren tundra, seemingly unstoppable. Then, a lone beacon penetrates the harsh weather. Better than the Emergency Broadcast System, it's our commentary for the 1951 sci-fi spine-chiller, The Thing From Another World. This attention signal is followed by official information, including film background, wine-fueled tangents, sexual innuendos galore, and the horror-driven wit that is Matt and Jason. Our test concludes with chatter on recent DVD viewings and what's coming up next. Watch the skies, Terror Fiends!   -- www.terrortransmission.com  -- www.purgingtalon.com

The curse of Satan has been placed. And only Matt and Jason can aid you in removing the killing mask and avenging your bloodline through their commentary on the 1960 Bava classic, Black Sunday (also known as The Mask of Satan). It's like a succulent Italian feast of evil, but with some perversion and vampirism sprinkled on top. Oh, sweet Barbara Steele's cleavage, it is delicious! After your gruesome meal, stay tuned for M&J's recent DVD viewings, and a new listener contest giveaway. Que bella! -- www.terrortransmission.com  -- www.purgingtalon.com

The Colony. A relaxing retreat for those in need of escaping the hustle and bustle of urban life. A gathering of supportive and like-minded individuals. A place to collect one's thoughts... of transforming into a rampaging lycanthropic beast bent on carnage and wild abandon. Yes, it's werewolf time once more, and Matt and Jason are bringing out their own version of fang and claw with their commentary on the 1981 splatter spectacular, The Howling. All bases are covered: film background, philosophy, special effects, history, boobies... you know, the important stuff. Then stick around post-movie for M&J's chat on their recent DVD viewings. -- www.terrortransmission.com  -- www.purgingtalon.com

The Kaiju onslaught has begun and Tokyo's not the only town in trouble. Whether by land or by sky, the monster attack is on and Matt and Jason are there with their commentary for the 1968 suitmation smackdown known as Destroy All Monsters. The roll call is impressive: Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah, Rodan, Baragon, Varan, Kumonga, Manda, Anguirus, Minilla and Gorosaurus. Through an oriental haze of Sake and Plum Wine, M&J give you so much background and fun on this flick, you'll want to breathe fire and stomp on major cities posthaste. It's Japan-tastic! -- www.terrortransmission.com  -- www.purgingtalon.com

He comes from out of the murky depths, covered in slime and waiting to viciously seize you with his cold and clammy hands. He's tenacious, he's hungry for flesh, he's... Jason on a cheap wine-fueled bender at the strip bars? Well, yes, but it's also an apt description for the star of our commentary's movie, 1954's Creature From The Black Lagoon. Guided by two strange men wearing 3-D glasses, your fateful Amazonian expedition will take you farther and farther downstream to witness all of the fun and fear of this Universal classic. After the film, stick around for M&J's recent horror DVD viewings and some serious hint-dropping on the next movie. So, jump on in for a swim... perhaps, your very last. -- www.terrortransmission.com  -- www.purgingtalon.com

Dust off your terry cloth bathrobes and eyeball pentacle necklaces because it's time for Matt and Jason to put on the commentary cheer for the 1977 drive-in devil flick, Satan's Cheerleaders. Through margarita goggles, M&J relay the finer points of '70s extracurricular erotica with a cheesy devil-worship edge, going deep into the hirsute jungle in order to tell the tale to you fine pre-verts. After the feature, expect listener mail, contest details, and more. One for all and all for one, Terror Transmission has a ball (or... four)! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Life (or lack thereof) can be difficult for the recently reanimated. Whether it's trying to find gainful employment or that special someone, it can be tough at times to fit in with a world of smiling, happy, as-yet-undead people. That's why we at Terror Transmission have developed this commentary for the 1985 sci-fi/horror spectacular, Re-Animator; to help you in your time of need. Sit back and relax your rotting and mutated limbs as Matt and Jason lull you into a state of drooling hypnotic bliss, comforting you with their movie facts and related background, their strange choice in wine, and their ravenous appetite for bubble-headed coeds. After the film, M&J will give you some sense of closure with their recent DVD viewings, details on the next contest giveaway, and more. Welcome back to life! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com
