MONDO YOUR EARS
WHAT IS A MONDO COMMENTARY?Mondo Commentaries are in depth conversations about films, synced in time with those films, sharing interesting behind the scenes factoids, film interpretations and, of course, the familiar humor that one comes to expect from The Horror Duo of the Slaughter Film Podcast.
mon·doWe chose to call them "mondo" commentaries because the word is fitting, but also it's a throwback to the swinging '60s in which the word was often used in conjunction with documentaries that focused on exploitative subjects. More mondo in film here.
