No footprints, no blood, no sign of a struggle. That might sound like the clever post-cleanup from one of Matt's or Jason's dates gone wrong, but it also describes the ghastly remains of a super-spider's lunch! What to do? Well, pay close attention as your handsome hosts weave a web of commentary around you, protecting you from the strange side effects of 1955's Tarantula! As the anti-toxin flows through your veins, enjoy the trip of movie background, lusting the grown up Shirley Temple, the joy of being cultural shut-ins, quack science, women in a man's film world, lots of movies your hosts like, drunken Nietzscheans, Jason's fear of spiders, and other creepy crawlers. After the napalm drops, retreat to your own peaceful desert as M&J discuss recent films viewed. And, remember: Science or no science, a girl's got to get her hair done. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

We believe we have made a significant find in the ruins of 1981, an audio volume of ancient drunken babble and entertaining movie chatter. The episode is entitled "The Evil Dead" -- roughly translated: Awesome Commentary! It deals with demons and demon resurrection and those forces which roam the forest and dark bowers of Man's domain such as film details, Deep Throat, the Jewish zombie question, our three-year anniversary, the Not-Campbell, arboreal rape, crappy beer, humor vs. horror, and other creatures that may lie dormant but are never truly dead. So listen in and, like the others before you, one by one, we will take you. JOIN US! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Some would say that this world is ruled by demons and monsters, and that we may as well give up right now. Others believe in witchcraft and the supernatural, that evil is good and good is evil. And then there are your handsome hosts, who just want to drink, ogle women and chat about movies. So, true believers, fire up your imagination and get ready for some crafty commentary on 1957's Night of the Demon. And while we're not from Missouri, we will indeed show you movie background, boobs, occult conspiracies, the magic of children, skepticism, Jason's hatred for the Andy Griffith show, psychological curses, dumb Deicide lyrics, playing the odds and… boobs! Once you emerge from the powers of darkness, stay tuned as Matt and Jason share their thoughts on recently-watched movies. Oh, no! It's in the trees! It's COMING! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Adolescence is a world of rapid uncertain change, social and cultural upheaval, and a period of turmoil in which the boundaries of normality and pathology seem notoriously indefinite. But for one young man, it is also a moment of discovering that he's the freakin' ANTICHRIST! So, before you start sticking holy daggers into random teenagers, please consult this commentary for 1978's Damien: Omen II. It'll be a real revelation when you uncover movie facts, the return of the Mini Moose, crow vs. raven, staying away from frozen lakes, fireworks fiascos, rewriting biblical mythology, gay perms, Matt's discovery of the foot rest, outsider teen struggles and other beastly blasphemies. Now, it's time to put away childish things and come with us. We won't ask you again. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

We're coming. We're waiting at the edge of the city, peering around buildings at night, anticipating your submission to our commentary on the 1973 release of Messiah of Evil. As the blood moon rises, lie down on the swinging bed and enjoy details on the film, as well as Jason's gas station rage, albino mulattos, Farrah's nipples, Metallica's downfall, theater prices, sexual compromising, more pre-Monster Bash scheming and one manly, macho high-five! So don't be afraid. Once you've been taken, no one will hear you SCREAM! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

England is a pretty hairy place. Lots of bloody horrible things could happen to you: bad teeth, a penchant for darts, drinking warm beer, wearing floppy hats and, of course, an unnatural death by lycanthropic attack. So, that's why you should take directions from us by listening to our carnivorous commentary on 1981's An American Werewolf in London. Until the curse is lifted, follow Matt and Jason completely off the road and into movie background, having fun with the British, being an upright citizen like Jason, pre-Monster Bash hijinks, urinating strategies, seducing innocent girls, the anger towards musical ringtones, the "Fonz Pubis" disease, Swiss Army knife suicide tips and other severe beatings about the face and neck. After the body is left bleeding and naked in an alleyway, join your handsome hosts in a discussion of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows movie. So, listen in or we will mock you… even in death! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Purchasing a home can be a costly and sometimes risky endeavor. In addition to bad neighborhoods, high utility bills, mortgages, remodeling issues, and other assorted hassles, you might also have to deal with a terrifying ancestral curse leading to total structural collapse… with YOU IN IT! Before you buy, consider our cautionary commentary on 1960's House of Usher. At our open house, we'll give you the full tour of movie details, Matt's Sex-Mex excursions, crassmanship, the King Diamond / Cesar Romero connection, "Dick"s, alcoholic nostalgia, trashing Matheson, the therapeutic value of confessions, and other mortal expenditures. After the dust settles, stick around for discussion on recently watched movies. Is there no end to our horrors? No. None whatsoever. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

It's quite possible that this episode has gone well beyond the boundaries of prudence and good taste. In fact, it might taste a little… familiar. So, pull up a chair to the cannibal feast as Matt and Jason serve up a big ol' slab of 1968 for their commentary on Spider Baby. Feel yourself caught in the web of movie trivia, women who look like monkeys, Hitler mustaches, gentleman vs. cad, exploring taboos, Matt's post-virginity Disneyland visit, maxims for all occasions, civil rights destroying black acting careers and other bites that sting, sting, sting! After everything makes a big flash and goes BANG, your handsome hosts will delight you with their thoughts on recent films watched. Oh boy! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Are you looking for an experience beyond limits? Wanting to become an explorer in the further regions? Let's face it: Are you a bit kinky… and THEN SOME? Well, here at Terror Transmission, we're waiting to hoist you upon the proverbial hooks by means of our puzzling commentary on 1987's Hellraiser. Demons? Angels? None of that will matter while you lament the punishment of film details, shoulder pads, Jason meeting Captain Kangaroo, sexual beach assaults, the multifaceted gem of deception, modern primitives, and other topics from two libertines who definitely have some disturbing sights to show you. Now, you must come with us. Taste our drunken, debauched, foul-mouthed pleasures. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

The zombies are coming. Run to wherever you think you'll be safe, but Matt and Jason will be on the roof, well-armed and transmitting their commentary on the 1978 survival horror classic, Dawn of the Dead. If you haven't been bitten yet, come on up as your handsome hosts instruct you on film details, mall culture, Matt's hatred of the sweater vest zombie, Jason's fledgling criminal career, surviving an undead assault, bad retro fashions, whiskey science experiments, the majesty of bullet belts, death with dignity, the illusion of safety, the Dawn of the Dead remake, and other large-caliber rounds to the head. So, don't just sit there… GET UP AND KILL! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

It seems the snatching just won't STOP! So, once more, Matt and Jason rain intergalactic spooge upon you, but this time with their commentary on the 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. So lie back, drift off to sleep, and let the duplication begin through movie background and trivia, urban paranoia, San Francisco nostalgia, anti-religious metaphor, the "sensitive male" ploy, Sutherland's mustache, the sex lives of pod people, government distrust, "flapjacks" and other pills that you should pop just like candy. And remember, it's more than a podcast… it's a conspiracy! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Ever feel like the people around you -- your family, your friends, your lovers -- just don't seem themselves lately? Sure, you could blame the economy or the doldrums of daily life. Or… maybe they AREN'T themselves! Maybe they're beings from another world bent on mediocrity and apathy. Sound entertaining? Well, of course it is when you unwillingly absorb our commentary for the 1956 science fiction classic, Invasion of the Body Snatchers. So, WAKE UP and let two grumpy old men plant some ideas in your heads, such as movie background, drugging your kids, rooster loops, making a tasty Manhattan, herd conformity versus individuality, the hotness of crying girls, and other alarming claims. Of course, if you fail to understand, then the same incredible terror will strike at YOU! That's right, you're NEXT! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Listen to them. No, NOT the children of the night… Matt and Jason! And while you're bedecked in your best cape and fangs, your handsome hosts will be compelled to present their corpuscular commentary on the 1979 version of Dracula. Leave your crosses and wafers behind because you'll really want to sink your teeth into movie background, apt comparisons to Coppola's Dracula, the silliness of belief in evil, Langella's hair, the dark side of romance, Jason's Harker hate, EVERYONE's Keanu hate, the eternal need for snacks and various other creatures needing to be dragged into the sunlight. And when it all turns to dust, follow M&J to the funeral where they'll discuss recently watched DVDs. So, follow us. Because you love to be frightened. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Is it a place of lodging, or a farm, or a shop for cheap, quality meats? Well, it's ALL THREE, silly! So, just plant yourself in the secret garden and listen to Terror Transmission's hypnotic commentary on 1980's Motel Hell. And if you think Farmer Vincent's fritters taste strange, wait until you get a load of Matt and Jason as they playfully grind up some movie details, more VHS nostalgia, population control, flirting with cannibalism, how to score damaged chicks, implied incest, fat-kid anger, Jason's girlfriend's hummus and various other schemes to lure you into compliance. Too many people, not enough food, but just the right amount of facts and funny. And, best of all… NO preservatives! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Konichiwa! Now drop those sushi rolls because terror's coming to Tokyo once more and only Matt and Jason can truly bring you the kaiju assault with their commentary on the 1964 release of Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster. Like a cross-dressing Venusian, we reveal way too much, including movie trivia, the human side of monster films, cooperating co-hosts, girls who are funny (and hot), stereotypes, Jason's strange "cleansing" diet, how to become Emperor of Japan, "get-along" juice and other stir-fried shenanigans. It ain't over 'til the Mothra Twins sing and, once they do, get ready for some recently-watched DVD talk from your handsome hosts. OHIO! -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

Under extreme duress, people are capable of extraordinary behavior. But, going after Crystal Lake's most infamous killer will take more than just nerves of steel and a bad haircut. You'll need horny teenagers for bait, an arsenal of home and garden tools for weapons, and some twisted advice from Matt and Jason contained in their commentary for 1984's Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter. Enter the morgue as your handsome hosts slide open the drawer so you can identify movie facts, Zito's neck, slasher favorites, metal in horror movies, advice for slutty teens, cinematic misdirection, the Coreys and other dismembered parts. Could this really be the last chapter? Listen in and find out. -- www.terrortransmission.com -- www.purgingtalon.com

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

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.

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

Aug 14, 2011

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
