PODCAST 259: Humanoids From the Deep & Prophecy [Eco-Horror Edition]


This week the Horror Duo share their thoughts on a pair of environmental horror films. Forest takes on the sleazy Humanoids From the Deep - teeming with sea-men and gushing with blood. Cory follows suit with Prophecy - focusing on contaminated waters that create a giant mutant bear.

Forest shares tales of the bountiful bosoms of beautiful Bavarian beer wenches. Cory expresses pleasant surprise by M. Night Shyamalan's Split as they discuss the rise and fall of Shyamalan's films. Also the Horror Duo prepare themselves for Episode 260 - marking the fifth anniversary of the Slaughter Film Podcast!

Excellent choices for reviews, guys. You could even say that your theme was, “Donald Trump is taking America out of the Paris Accords, so let’s watch some old school eco-horror.”

Leonard Maltin basically praised Humanoids from the Deep as trashy fun not to be taken seriously, while he dismissed the mutant bear from Prophecy as looking like a salami. I’m an avid reader of Maltin’s books, and I think that he really, deep down, just loves gratuitous nudity. He gave two-star ratings to most of Andy Sidaris’s 80s films AND to Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-o-Rama, which even horror fans look at in disgust, because of the female skin on display.

About ideas for THE PURGE, I was wondering: What would be the chances that on the day of the Purge, you could head over to the local high school and come across an orgy of teacher-student pairings that would normally result in arrest for statutory rape, but not on that day?

THE BOOGENS was made in 1981 and thus predates GREMLINS. It’s supposed to be a legitimately-good low-budget monster movie.
