PODCAST 73: Pumpkinhead 2 & Maniac

This week Forest skims over Pumpkinhead as an introduction to Pumpkinhead 2: Blood Wings which hosts a cameo from the brother of former U.S. President Bill Clinton. Cory tries to top that excitement by reviewing the remake of Maniac, starring Elijah Wood.

The gang also talk about Ender's Game, poppin' the sweet virgin cherries of donuts, and mutated native-american pumpkin penises. All this and Punky Brewster... for some reason.

Maniac, I need to check that one out.

I think I might remember you posting something about eating one of those, from what I've heard, godawful mcribs. Well here's video with a picture of an uncooked one for you:

Noticed that you guys don't have a movie planned for Netflix yet. I'd like to recommend Freerunner, one of the best "so-bad-it's-good" movies I've seen in a long time. Just stick with it through the first 20-30 minutes, and then you'll be in for nonstop action, cheese, plot holes, nonsense, blood, etc. It's better if you go into that movie only knowing that there's a freerunner race tournament, and just wait to see the insanity unfold from there, and see what movie it shamelessly rips off.

And Forest, you know how you said that Friday the 13th Part 5 had the most shameless use of breast exposure in movie history? Well, I think Freerunner tops it in 1 scene. You'll know it when you see it.

Overall I like both versions of the Maniac movies. I rank them with Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. All 3 seem to have a gritty realism. The only part that ruins the new version for me is it seems the photographer figures out Frank is the killer to easily, but maybe I'm just used to movies where all the clues are there & the person doesn't figure out who the killer is & just buys into the persons lame excuses. Also it may be that we see Frank watching the news where they mention the other victims. This may have also been all in his head, but that seems rather odd even for an odd movie.
