This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM have a mild case of tonsillitis, so we quarantined ourselves at home to watch the 2007 Spanish horror film [REC] starring Manuela Velasco and directed by Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza!

We also touch on found footage films, movies that scared us as adults, and remakes!

Episode 025 – Series 7: The Contenders

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM’s number has been ‘randomly selected’ and now we’re forced to compete in a game to the death called ‘Series 7: The Contenders’! This film, which some call a scathing indictment of reality television, is directed by Daniel Minahan and stars Brooke Smith, Glenn Fitzgerald, and Will Arnett!

We also offer up our opinions on the reality TV trend and discuss similar movies like ‘Battle Royale’, ‘The Hungers Games’, and ‘The Running Man’!
