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·do
adverb & adjective
adverb: mondo; adjective: mondo

used in reference to something very striking or remarkable of its kind (often in conjunction with a pseudo-Italian noun or adjective).
"I think it's going to be mondo weirdo this year, Andy"
We 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.

Unnamed sources have referred to Mondo Commentaries as; "The poor man's RiffTrax" and "Bigger than Jesus", and who could argue that?!

To clear up any confusion, this commentary is is to be synced with the theatrical (more common) version of the film.

30 MINUTES OR LESS

Join the Horror Duo as they discuss the totally bizarre and very deadly true crime story behind the film 30 Minutes or Less. Hollywood didn't set out to make a stoner comedy. Instead they set out to make a film about an elaborate bank robbery that went wrong, and with fear of a negative backlash and perhaps even lawsuits, they changed their tune. What's especially fascinating is that THIS crime took place in Slaughter Film's home town. So grab a beer and enjoy!
