Episode 048 – Vampire’s Kiss

Vampires-Kiss-poster-339x500
This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM take a trip to the therapist to work through our issues with 1989’s ‘Vampire’s Kiss’!

This bizarrely dark comedy, directed by Robert Bierman, nearly defies description, but we can say that it does star Nicholas Cage at the peak of his Cage-y powers!
Christine is back this episode, and Robin’s sister Erin stops by to weigh in with her amazing theory on what really is going on in this film!
I would tell you more, but I seem to have misfiled my notes….

Episode 046 – Southbound

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM hop in the pick-up truck, flip on the radio and keep it moving into the deep dark abyss that is ‘Southbound’! This 2015 horror anthology film is Robin’s pick and is directed by Radio Silence, Roxanne Benjamin, David Bruckner, and Patrick Horvath!
We also talk about other anthology movies, functional illiteracy, and Amazon drones that serve you court papers!
Speaking of which, I’m required to tell you that this episode was not brought to you by the fine folks from Amazon Prime! Furthermore, the views and opinions expressed by THE MILKSHAKE BOOM do not necessarily reflect those of any of our potential listeners; especially ‘Wonder Woman’ actor and all around superstar Chris Pine.

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM emerge from the dank, gas-filled sewers of NYC to bring your our above ground discussion on the even danker C.H.U.D.!  This 1984 sci-fi horror film stars Daniel Stern and John Heard and is directed by Douglas Cheek!


Episode 036 – The Thing (1982)

THE MILKSHAKE BOOM ring in the new year the only way we know how: with Kurt Russell, rampant paranoia, and graphic ultra-violence!  If you haven’t guessed it yet, Christine’s pick this week is the 1982 sci-fi classic ‘The Thing’ from the horror master himself John Carpenter!

We talk about the harsh critical reaction the film received upon release and the incredibly stiff competition it faced during the summer of 1982, which included ‘Poltergeist’, ‘Rocky III’, ‘Blade Runner’, and ‘E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial’ just to name a few!

We also give our spoiler-free thoughts on ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, discuss the similarities between John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’ and Quentin Tarantino’s latest effort ‘The Hateful Eight’; plus Jose breaks out his conspiracy chalkboard to detail his convoluted theory on who actually is ‘The Thing’!
