Ho-ho-ho! Merry Christmas! Just in time to stuff your stockings, THE MILKSHAKE BOOM bring you some serious Christmas cheer with ‘Darkman’; a 1990 film directed by Sam Raimi and starring Liam Neeson and Frances McDormand!

We do our best to delve into this cult classic, but occasionally get distracted as Robert and Christine have a date to see ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and were not going to miss it!  But we do get into the logistics of how dark ‘Darkman’ really is, Danny Elfman’s Batman-esque score, and how the plot completely hinges on a coffee stain!

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM welcome our special guest (and Robin’s sister) Erin to the podcast.  Erin is so ‘very’ with her movie selection: ‘Heathers’! This dark cult classic is directed by Michael Lehmann and stars Winona Ryder, Christian Slater, and Shannon Doherty.

We discuss our favorite Christian Slater/Winona Ryder films, dark comedies in general, and we reveal some of our high school horror stories! We also delve into a Three Stooges social thought experiment, major plot points on forgery, Christine’s hatred of ‘Army of Darkness’ and her theory that ‘Heathers’ is basically ‘Fight Club’.
