At Pi Kappa Sigma, our girls pledge themselves to service, grow in poise and confidence, keep their sense of values and, on occasion, must deal with a homicidal crank caller or two. Yes, sorority life can be difficult, particularly during the holiday season, and that's why Matt and Jason wish to ease you into a cheerful position with their morally questionable commentary on 1974's Black Christmas. Join the sherry-soaked slumber party as your lecherous hosts fill you in on movie background and trivia, Canadian wackiness, perverse squirrels, banana toes, teen-seducing English teachers, telephone drinking games, the gritty '70s, Olivia's beautiful hair, race fun, and other stocking stuffers. So, bring your smuggled hooch and your sexy attitudes. We'll meet you in the attic. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

We're sorry to disturb you but we're at Q-2 status. It looks like we found that lost commentary for 1985's The Return of the Living Dead. Yes, Terror Fiends, we're pretty sure. We're getting confirmations on this in the form of film facts, fast zombies, vengeful party hats, '80s punks, wizard sleeves, the perverted majesty of Blu-ray, dog-urine birthday cakes, the wrongness of "Thom" and other rabid weasels. Apparently, there is no contingency plan and all that can be heard is a cry of BRAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIINS! So, given your options, are you wondering what would be the most horrible way to die? Well, not hearing this episode, of course! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Ladies and gentlemen! You have been called here again to receive further information from the farthest reaches of our galaxy. We will relay teleradio commentary for the 1958 interplanetary monstrosity, It! The Terror From Beyond Space. Once assumed to be lost in the cosmos, Matt and Jason are still at the helm, guiding their metallic missile straight into movie trivia, Jason's endless list of "favorite" movies, getting around sodomy laws, George Lucas's neck, the Occupy Pantyless Women movement, quack science in films and other murderous Martian madness. Following touchdown, your handsome crew will debrief you on their recently watched DVDs. Enjoy. But make sure you close that darn hatch! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Come one, come all! That's right, folks! Gather 'round because the podcast is starting right now. This is the one you've read about, you've heard your neighbors talking about it, and here it is -- our commentary on the 1932 release of Freaks! Watch the doorway, keep your ears open, you don't wanna miss any of the acts, and it's all free! Right here and starting right now, marvel at the wonders of full movie background, the aphrodisiac of argyle, so-called exploitation, those wacky censors, sex with midgets, metal sub-referencing, hobo dogs, Canadian permissiveness, embracing your inner freak and other monstrosities of nature. After the show, come on into the revival tent and hear your handsome hosts testify to what they've recently watched on DVD. Gooble gobble, gooble gobble, we accept you, one of us… -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

On the mean streets of New York City, the danger is very real: freaks, junkies, perverts, thugs, weirdos, and the biggest bloodsucker of all -- Count Dracula! He's in town, and he's looking for love in all the trendy, sex-crazed, disco dance clubs. So, while you're freaking out in a bathroom stall on too many quaaludes, Matt and Jason will try to talk you down with their commentary on the 1979 comedy horror flick, Love At First Bite. Just play it real cool as we drive our stakes into a brief history of comedy in horror, slob punching, pretty stewardesses, the "Irene" story, Richard versus Dick, neurosis with chutzpah, the perils of excess, Halloween costume decision making and other life-draining matters. For those who take their podcast on the rocks and with a twist, this blood's for you. Cheers and Happy Halloween! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Greetings, kiddies! We're Matt and Jason -- the CREEPS! -- and we'll be your guides on this five-part journey into fear. So get yourself some cake and gasp like a lunkhead as we creep up on you with commentary for the 1982 anthology, Creepshow. Awful anecdotes, yell yarns and fearsome fables will unfold in the form of movie background, the merits of long-haired ladies, more mass murder fantasies, Matt's home bar project, libertines, Netflix gripes, alcohol faux pas and other means to measure the bite marks. And, if you can hold your breath for a long, long time, we might even chat about some things after the movie. Of course, you know that if your dad catches you listening to this podcast again, you won't sit down for a week. Remember that! Tuck in! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Welcome to Hell House. We're delighted you could come. We're also certain you will find your stay most illuminating. Think of Matt and Jason as your unseen servants, and believe that during your stay, you will be taken over by the spirit of 1973's The Legend of Hell House. May you find the answers that you seek amidst movie trivia, Matt's exciting gin adventure, creative wordsmithing, psychic nonsense, Jason's anglophilia, the mocking of '90s music subculture and a host of other restless souls. After the evil has subsided, join M&J for post-movie chat on recent DVDs watched. Will YOU be the only one to make it out alive and sane? -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Deep in the jungles of Haiti, the natives are not only restless… they're UNDEAD! And they also seem to have some pretty good job security as they toil endlessly for the master in the 1932 creeper, White Zombie. If you look closely, you might see Matt and Jason lurking around the plantation, gathering a dark crop of information on prideful flatulence, the history of zombies, the silent-to-talkie transition, sex with pygmies, more pronunciation fun and plenty of movie background. Afterwards, there might even be time for some discussion on what M&J watched recently. So, never mind the taste. Just drink it. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Something happened to Antonio Bay tonight. Something came and tried to destroy them. We tried to warn the inhabitants but they refused to listen to our commentary on 1980's The Fog. But if this episode had been anything but a nightmare of porn fluffers, powerful mustaches, deformed children, naughty priests and modern cinema complaints, the dark icy death could have come again. To the Terror Fiends at sea who can hear our voices, look across the water, into the darkness. The midnight hour is near… and we're almost out of booze! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

The podcast you are about to listen to is an account of the tragedy which befell two drinking men with a pair of microphones. It is all the more tragic that they were somewhat young. But, had they lived very, very long lives, they could not have expected nor would they have wished to bring you the mad and macabre commentary for the 1974 release of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. For them an idyllic summer afternoon became a nightmare of cinematic cannibalism, the radiant '70s sex power of Marilyn Burns, misanthropy, scream queens, misdirected feminism, umlauts, and lots and lots and lots and lots of screaming. The events of that day were to lead to one of the most bizarre recordings in the annals of American history. And, it's kinda funny, too. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

These are the facts as we know them. There is an epidemic of mass murder being committed by a virtual army of unidentified assassins. So, stay in your homes and keep a close listen to this episode of Terror Transmission as we warn you of the dangers of 1968's Night of the Living Dead. Eyewitnesses describe two of the assassins as handsome, well-spoken and answering to the names of Matt and Jason. They also appear to have a lot of say about the dissolution of the American family, fear and identity, social breakdown, gang bang records and mass murder fantasies, plus M&J's making of "Night of the Living Deadbeats" parody short and some brief mentions of Monster Bash 2011 happenings. Once they're finished getting "all messed up," join your hosts as they discuss recent DVD viewings. Now get the hell down in the cellar! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Welcome, Terror Fiends. It seems Matt and Jason have rented a house tonight so that they can give a party, and you're all invited. There will be food and drink and ghosts, and perhaps even a few murders. If any of you will spend the next two hours listening to our commentary on 1959's House on Haunted Hill… well, we won't give you each ten thousand dollars. But we will give you some spooktacular synopses on movie gimmicks, William Castle, giant blonde mullets, bad relationship advice, mondegreens, and some truly heart-stopping facts on our feature film. The party's starting now. Are you brave enough to stay all night? -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

During difficult economic times, people will do a lot of things to make a few bucks: selling precious heirlooms, downgrading on living spaces, less socializing, riding public transportation… but robbing graves to sell corpses to medical science? That's a whole new level of commitment. And speaking of two people who should be committed, join Matt and Jason as they dig up all of the dirty details on the 1945 thriller, The Body Snatcher. Gather 'round the autopsy table as we dissect ethical quandaries, Matt's hatred of horses, drug slang, pretty young things, Jason's summer rage and, oh yeah, some stuff about this movie, too. Following the gruesome lecture, your handsome hosts chat about recently-watched DVDs. You'll never get rid of us, never get rid of us, never get rid of us… -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

In the center of a makeshift lab, the Resonator glows with an eerie omnipresence. Soon, all of your deepest desires will come rushing to the surface to consume and, ultimately, change you forever. So, while you're a gelatinous horny blob of flesh in the corner, you'll no doubt be in the mood for some entertainment. And entertain you we shall with our semi-focused commentary on 1986's From Beyond. Flip the switch and close your eyes as Matt and Jason fill your head with phallic imagery, the goddess that is Barbara Crampton, duality, the ugly side of BDSM, more VHS memories, other Lovecraft movies, and plenty of goopy stuff from another dimension. Once everyone else either dies or goes insane, join your handsome hosts for some much needed discussion on recently-watched DVDs. You are all such easy prey.  -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

The smell of summer is in the air -- and it carries with it the charming aroma of freshly burning Christian! Yes, it's a barbecue of the blessed and you're invited, so put on a scary animal mask and grab some mead because Matt and Jason will be sweetly singing you their commentary on the 1973 release of The Wicker Man. It is a pagan rite steeped in rich traditions, such as camel toes and bell bottoms, hare symbology, anti-Christianity, dirty British names, culture clashes, "low-hanging fruit" and other purely natural ingredients. So, fling off your clothes and dance around our perverse audio bonfire, whatever the hell THAT means! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Growing up without a mother can be a painful experience. Particularly, if you eye-witness her decapitation. So, what's a young man to do but put on a mask and kill all the neighbors! Over and over again. Sure, YOU could do that. Or you could put down the machete and listen to a soothing commentary from two men who know much about poor decision-making -- and '80s horror sequels such as the 1982 hack-n-slasher, Friday The 13th Part 3. Gain strength from the depravity of others as Matt and Jason clue you in on boobies in horror movies, gay porn allusions, the history of 3-D, the effects of bad beer on podcasters, and… hey, look, she's reading Fango! Either way, it'll give you something to scream about. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

The war machines have come to conquer the Earth. Mayhem, havoc, and death will descend upon the planet's inhabitants and few will survive to tell the tale. Like Matt and Jason, of course. They're special. And they'll be riding that short bus alongside you as they reveal their chilling commentary on 1953's The War of the Worlds. So, get your head out of Uranus and listen up as M&J pulsate with adoration for Ann Robinson, and also instruct you on alien cover-ups, hot librarians, the stupidity of self-sacrifice, Jason's feminist views, and other data on surviving a Martian invasion. When the radiation has dropped to acceptable levels, you will then be taken to the debriefing room by your handsome hosts for their rundown on newly-watched DVDs. Let the wave of fear begin! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Hold onto your horns! Because Matt and Jason will be swigging Danish beer and getting all of the nuns aroused with their heretical commentary on the 1922 silent classic, Häxan. Demons and witches will encircle you and fill you with all sorts of naughty thoughts, including those on Christian misdeeds throughout history, reality shows, Jason's skinhead side, dead baby jokes, wild women, the magic of silent films, and other delicious iniquities. Once the diabolical history lesson is over, your handsome hosts will return to discuss their recent DVD viewings. Witchy! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Deep in the castle's crypt, the master has been awakened by the spilling of innocent blood. With torches lit, your handsome hosts descend the stone stairs in search of answers to this ancient evil. And they will find them. So will you when you listen to their commentary on the 1966 fang-tacular film, Dracula: Prince of Darkness. Follow Matt and Jason as they cast their torchlights on sensitive British children, drunken seduction, relationship age differences, "nose cones", Matt's bachelor lair makeover, favorite Renfields, and all the grandeur captured under the terrifying cloak of Hammer Films. Once the creature of the night has been vanquished, join M&J as they chat about their latest DVD viewings. It'll be a bloody good time! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Get ready to experience an exclusive three-hour stay at the historic Overlook Hotel located in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The Overlook has it all -- breathtaking views, rustic charm, exquisite food and drink, bleeding elevators, creepy dead girls, paranormal attacks -- and don't forget the cozy accommodations! Matt and Jason will be your guides throughout your visit by commenting on the 1980 release of The Shining. Points of interest will include book/movie comparison, relationship power plays, Jack Daniels memories, catchphrasing, the brilliance of children, and enough psychological deconstruction to keep you lost in your own mental hedge maze. When your retreat finally ends, join your handsome hosts as they discuss their recent DVD viewings. So, come listen to us… forever… and ever… and ever… and ever… -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Ages ago, the warning was given but not heeded. The sarcophagus and its prematurely entombed guardian were not meant to be disturbed, but you just had to go and open it all up. No turning back now, so you might as well know what you're getting into by listening to our commentary on the 1959 epic Hammer Film version of The Mummy. Underneath all of those rotting bandages is a whole lot of ethnic confusion, heavy metal tinnitus, cowbell, inadvertent bestiality, rude cashiers, an abridged history of slavery and other primeval putrefaction. Once the stink has settled, stick around to hear about what your handsome hosts have recently watched on DVD. It's hieroglyphically delicious! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

The night of the dead has begun. The Gates of Hell have been opened wide and the dead will rise up in hopes of taking over the Earth. Time is running out for humanity and the only ones who can re-close those gates are... Matt and Jason? Scary, to be sure, but also your only salvation. So, one and all, sit around the séance table, hold hands, and listen by candlelight to our commentary on the 1980 zombie apocalypse known as City of the Living Dead. During your trance, expect otherworldly divination of drive-in sexcapades, Matt's vocal stylings, advice for necrophiles, party snack obsessions, debunking Fulci's bad rep and other revelations from the grave. After the gates are finally shut, M&J will enlighten you with what DVDs they've recently seen. Amo il lasagna!  -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Love will do strange things to a guy. One might write a song or read sweet poetry to his object of affection. Another might climb a mountain or drive across the country in order to show his true feelings. Or perhaps it might take... a little more than that. Follow Matt and Jason on a journey into the blackest depths of amour with their commentary on the 1935 dark suspense tale, Mad Love. It's a wild romance straight out of the asylum with rants and ravings on Peter Lorre, censorship, questionable wooing tactics, marrying rich, snacks, suicide, and enough tasteless stereotypes to keep you in stitches. And when the love finally dies, join your handsome hosts for some chat on their recently watched movies. Are you ready to kill the thing YOU love? -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Have no fear, Terror Fiends. We are here to protect thee. We are also here to show you the exciting and rewarding lifestyle of the Antichrist with our commentary on the 1976 Satanic shocker, The Omen. Let us be your murderous nanny as we instruct you in the ways of the Devil through such topics as bad remakes, British evil, an operatic tribute to the moose, shoddy parenting, gilf-mongering, pleasant Italian ladies, and just how gosh darn adorable that Damien kid can be. No matter how many sixes you have on your head, you'll be living it up with the Thorns in grand style. Just don't get in the little one's way. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com
