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

Apr 1, 2011

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

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

Oct 15, 2010

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

Sep 15, 2010

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

Aug 15, 2010

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

Aug 1, 2010

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
