This week the Horror Duo move away from RoboCop, and onto RoboCop's natural cybernetic enemy, the Terminator. After recording a fancy fresh Mondo Commentary for The Terminator, Forest shares his thoughts and memories of Terminator 2, while Cory explains how he tried to enjoy Terminator 3, in spite of it's shortcomings.

Cory also shares a retro second hand find, the Mummy Monster from the "Monsters" series of The Real Ghostbusters toy line, Forest gets mistaken for a drummer in a band, and they discuss what The Last Jedi may be.

All this and the conversation shifts toward kindertrauma, the television sit-com Mr. Belvedere, and the American Genre Film Archive.

Speaking of Conan movies, I think of "The Chronicles of Riddick" as a kind of Conan In Space adventure. Vin Diesel even winds up sitting on the throne at the end in a classic Conan pose. It would be cool if you guys could do a "Pitch Black" (a version of what Alien 3 could have been) and "The Chronicles of Riddick" double header.

I saw T2 in the theater when I was 9. My dad dropped my brother and I off at the theater and when my brother went to buy the ticket, the lady at the counter asked if we had parental consent. My brother pointed to the car outside and my dad gave the thumbs up.

It’s worth pointing out that T2 swept most of the technical awards at the 1992 Academy Awards, losing in total award count to SILENCE OF THE LAMBS.

Also, a couple of years after T2 came out, there was a Sunday-evening news program that showed the original filmed ending, which we see an aged Sarah Connor watching an adult John Connor playing with his children on a playground, while she narrates that the nuclear strike in 1997 never occurred.

For real serial killer films, some suggestions: “The Boston Strangler” with Tony Curtis; “M” with Peter Lorre; “The Legend of Lizzie Borden” with Elizabeth Montgomery; plus “From Hell” and “The Man in the Attic” about Jack the Ripper.

Also, there was a 1967 sci-fi movie called “Cyborg 2087” about a cyborg sent from the future to modern times to change the future.
