There's a psychopath roaming the streets of New York City. And no matter how fancy shmancy you think you are with your fancy dresses and lipstick, he'll get you. Unless, of course, you find that poorly-lit alleyway where Matt and Jason will drive you crazy with their commentary on the 1980 release of Maniac. Strike a few sexy poses while your handsome hosts take you away with film background, red light districts, urban paranoia, the gritty '70s NYC cinema, ironic hipster nonsense, hot modern mannequins, angry womyn, vintage porn critiques, horror survival tips, the Maniac remake and other means to possess you... forever. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

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

Bolted doors and windows barred - Matt and Jason stand on guard - another episode not to dread - yes, of course, it's Pumpkinhead! 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

In honor of our 100th episode, it has been decided that the malignant influence of the show should now extend far beyond our earthly bounds. So, your handsome hosts have rocketed into the deepest reaches of space to spread their vile commentary on 1981's Galaxy of Terror. The Master has spoken! So enter the wet black hole and receive movie background, Eddie Albert Junior hatred, old man moments, fictional planets for carnal misconduct, picking on sacred cows, Jason's love of Red Shoe Diaries, magic psychedelic beer, sexual assault in movies, film opinions changing over time, and other celestial silliness. Your countdown to Hell is about to begin. So, start drinking now! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Will listening to this podcast be enough to stop the huge beast? Will the miracle be granted? Or will it be yet another of man's puny efforts to oppose this irresistible force of ancient nature? Probably that last one. But, don't be sad. Down a few pints of lager and let Matt and Jason lead you to the circus's most fearsome attraction: 1961's Gorgo. Sure, we'll probably have to answer for all of the urban devastation in our drunken path, but in the meanwhile, we can enjoy movie facts, Jason's fear of patricide, the joys of gutter-stepping, Asian perversions, non-smoking co-hosts, the uselessness of guilt, dancing penises, the divisiveness of Gamera, vicariously living through destructive monsters, and other things that should not be. Overwhelmed? Exhausted? Helpless? Then we've done our job. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

In a distant room, you can hear the haunting sounds of music. As you approach the source, you gasp in horror as you see the hand that plays the piano is completely dismembered. Now, this might seem shocking but you haven't experienced anything until you've listened to Matt and Jason's cacophonous commentary on 1946's The Beast With Five Fingers. Now come the hallucinations as your handsome hosts soothe you with movie background, Matt's tween superhero days, robot girlfriends, cunning stunts, Batman and Penguin's hilarious sexual escapades, dictators and the women who don't love them, "pianists", Jason's hatred for female hairstyles of the 1940s, the gayness of mustaches, and other nails hammered into your extremities. So, relax and let the music… slay! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

You have received a transmission of unknown origin. The course of your journey has been interrupted for three hours in the darkness of space, in which no one can hear you scream. Your special order is to return with our commentary on 1979's Alien. All other priorities are rescinded as your handsome hosts celebrate Terror Transmission's 4th anniversary. You'll also have plenty of time before the emergency destruct system reaches zero to enjoy film background, misunderstood genius, movie tech vs. modern-day tech, science fiction's influence on actual tech, machine vs. man vs. monster, "face hugging", Matt Meets The Plush Godzilla, token vs. token, dictator directors, comparison to Aliens and other primordial pustulence. This is Matt and Jason, signing off. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Sometimes, it really does take a mob of sexually assaultive sea monsters to bring a community together. And group action is what your handsome hosts are all about as they foster their own twisted brand of awareness for 1980's Humanoids from the Deep. Listen as Matt and Jason build good social relations through film facts, fat kid ineptitude, the biblical justification for stoning babies, Terror Transmission's booze cruise, Morrow's wacky death, overinflated Indian names, gay code, plucky women and other ways to create deeper respect and mutual trust. There's certainly nothing fish-y about that! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

High atop the icy mountain peaks, the tentacled terror awaits you. Given the circumstances, there isn't much time to descend the face of that terrible cliff. But, you do have an hour or two to spare for a breath of fresh air known as 1958's The Crawling Eye. Avalanches are the least of your worries as you survive the harsh conditions of movie background, the crawling fly, the return of British evil, tacky Americana, Jason's type of guy, the Germans and their twisted naughty films, the NEW chosen land, pseudoscientific quackery, another out-of-the-blue Bond rant, eugenics, and other radioactive freaks of nature. That's right. Nasty business. Very nasty. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Right now, he's out there. Watching, waiting. Don't look... he'll see you. Don't move... he'll hear you. Don't breathe... just listen carefully as Matt and Jason give it to you straight at their fireside chat on 1981's The Burning. Deep in the forest, you'll hear the cries of film details, the glut of camping murder movies, pot deal refunds, IMDB idiocy, Matt's love of ice princesses, summer camp memories, the horrors of terrycloth, the misunderstood Cropsy and other revenge on those meddling kids. So, are you in? Because, if not... YOU'RE DEAD! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

We like pretty girls. We only kill pretty girls. And that's why only a couple of ladykillers like Matt and Jason could bring you the sanguinary saga of 1964's Blood and Black Lace. So, slip on your murder mask and meet us on the catwalk as we parade movie details, quack psychology, misogyny around the world, spontaneous homicide musings, Jason's million mentions of Black Sabbath (the movie), the compliance of deceased sexual partners, Bava vs. Argento, models as meat, and other tasty Italian treats. Does the sight of beauty make you lose control? Then listen in! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

The funeral is about to begin. Never mind the scurrying creatures and flying weaponized spheres. Just bow your head and hang on tight as Matt and Jason open the portal to 1979's Phantasm. You might think that when you die, you go to Heaven, but you'll actually come to us for movie trivia, '70s dirtbag guys, why modern cars suck, Matt's intentionally bad French, hair helmets, bachelorette parties gone wild, dwarf vs. midget vs. little person, unisex names, and other things that are little, brown and low to the ground. It's definitely going to be a hot time. Hot as love. You know? -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Sometimes, you just have to get your lovin' where you can. And Matt and Jason really get out their grave digging shovels for 1964's The Tomb of Ligeia. Prepare for a mindless sort of madness as your handsome hosts exhume movie background, natural lighting for home porn, British horses, death and resurrection, May-December relationships, Jason's necrophiliac desires, Matt's favorite Dr. Who, sexy pale girls, drinking breast milk and other things that make you go meow. Just don't look into their eyes. They will confound you! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Teleportation can have some odd side effects. You might start sprouting strange hairs or even acquire the ability to climb all over the walls. If these and other symptoms persist, you should listen immediately to our helpful commentary on 1986's The Fly. Although your handsome hosts are not actual scientists, they will professionally guide you through film facts, improbable user interfaces in cinema, Jason's magical journey through someone else's beard, post-coital decorum, judging hairstyles, science over belief, the BrundleFly / Michael Jackson connection, Matt trying J&B for the first time and other means by which to make your flesh crazy. So, take a deep penetrating dive into our plasma pool, and we'll see you on the other side. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Everybody needs some change now and again, to get away from it all and become someone else. Or... something else. So, enter the disintegration chamber and your handsome hosts will see you on the other end with their recombinant commentary for 1958's The Fly. Sometimes you have to destroy in order to create, and Matt and Jason do their share of breaking down movie background, math wizards, dumb horror podcasts, the perils of Canadian French, heavy metal facelifts, the hotness of crying girls, repressed '50s housewives, tips for finding sex entertainment in Quebec, post-1985 James Bond hate, and other questionable experiments. But, don't worry. They wouldn't harm anything... not even a fly. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Spirits surround you on every side. Murder is in the air. And the mesmerizing voices of Matt and Jason cannot be resisted as you slowly open the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. You'll find yourself in a hypnotic haze as you silently spiral into 1920 to witness movie facts, the Siegfried Steamer, those fun-loving Germans, the secret hidey-hole, Jason's love of silent film gals, Matt's use of "comely", semi-consensual roleplaying, Hitler, the death of cursive writing, hotel Bible destruction, and other plots of doom. But, don't ask us for more. You wouldn't like to know your fate. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Buongiorno, Demoni del Terrore! Step into the parlor and let Matt and Jason make you a nice pizza pie... along with a special vino just for you: Deep Red, vintage 1975. After a few bottles, you might feel a bit woozy, so lie down in the back of the Ferrari as your handsome hosts take you for a ride through movie background, loads of giallo film recommendations, Italian gender-bending, the power of J&B scotch, the glory of unfettered breasts, the beauty of cinematic death, the creepiness of puppets, Jason's fear of little girls, arguments about pajamas, Matt's spontaneous desire to solve crimes and other means by which to smash faces of pretty girls into glass. Que bella! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Have you ever been bored? Not merely restless and unoccupied, but really, REALLY bored? Bored enough to... slaughter a bunch of hapless virgins and bathe in their blood? If so, then do we have an episode for you! That's right, heave up that cleavage and hoist your drink to eternal youth as Matt and Jason bring you the sanguinary story of 1971's Countess Dracula. Sure, there isn't a vampire to be found, but that shouldn't stop you from suckling the teat of movie background, female serial killers, magic Dio ashes, the Eric Roberts lookalike, Ingrid's Nazi tales, gay reindeer, an extensive look at the Bathory tale, the Ingrid Pitt / Peter Criss Connection, learning diversity from Benny Hill, the smell from the DVD room and other questionable fluids. And if your handsome hosts disappear, remember... try the whorehouse! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Nazarene charlatan, what can you offer humanity? Certainly not the greatest horror commentary podcast... EVER! And where he has failed, Matt and Jason deliver with their utterly blasphemous commentary on 1981's The Final Conflict. So, sit back and let your handsome hosts show you the raptures of their kingdom through movie facts, feeling the spirit, Bud Dwyer, Reagan and the Fundies, Christian hypocrisy, the enjoyment of power, Jason's fascination with twins, bad girls, failed prophecies and other trivial lusts and perversions. Disciples of the Watch... do you HEAR US! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Is it real... or all make believe? People say that a lot about Matt and Jason but you might also place the burden of that question upon this episode's movie, 1935's Mark of the Vampire. With white faces and burning eyes, your handsome hosts occasionally interrupt their drinking to bring you film background, eating stale gingerbread houses, Hollywood orgies, completely unrelated movies, hissing in film, anger for the end of this flick, the attraction of villainy and more deadly cold breath on your throat. It might not end the way you think but it'll still be the hilariously debauched hell ride you crave. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Jan 1, 2013

Achtung, Terror Fiends! Run for the attic because your handsome hosts are goose-stepping their way into all things verboten with their commentary on the 1977 Nazi zombie classic, Shock Waves. Your food supply might be running out but there's plenty of Matt and Jason to go around as they dictate movie details, perverted New Year's resolutions, "flapjacks", time travel shenanigans, the 3/4 Rule, Unterseezombies, and extensive discussion on Nazi interest in the occult, plus a special announcement or two and listener e-mail. Frohes neues Jahr! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com
