Episode 121: Ghostwatch (1992)

This month we’re watching the legendary British television cult classic GHOSTWATCH and also discussing the approximate number of people who are dummies.

 

Next time on Bride of the Creature: Joey has selected Bob Balaban’s 1993 horror-comedy “My Boyfriends Back” and you’re gonna be in trouble.

Episode 120: The Night Strangler (1973)

Like a phoenix from the ashes, we have returned.

After an unscheduled hiatus (we looked all over the damn house for my beautiful KINO special edition blu ray of this film… it’s the one with the awesome Sean Phillips cover art) we’re back to discuss this wonderful TV movie from 1973, and a whole lot besides! This episode could also probably have been titled: “old man yells at cloud.”

Next time on Bride of the Creature: A bunch of rubes got fooled that an obviously fictional halloween special was real. There is a better than average chance that we are going to fight about whether they should have been. Don’t miss next episode when we review GHOSTWATCH.

Episode 119: Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988)

I’ll tell you what I’m going to do with these pies, man! I’m gonna invite you and all your friends over for a pie party! It’s gonna be a really great way to buoy the spirits of the community and bring us closer together!

 

Next time on Bride of the Creature: If you thought Mulder was a sexy, smoldering hunk wait until you get a load of Kolchak! It’s Dan Curtis’ 1973 Kolchak movie “The Night Strangler” (yes, it’s the second Kolchak movie, no you don’t need to have seen the first one, yes you should still watch the first one and the television series).

Episode 118: Werewolves Within (2021)

Easily in the top 3 werewolf movies that reference Mr. Rogers.

 

Next time on Bride of the Creature: What ARE you going to do with those pies, boys? It’s KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE!

Episode 117: Gonjiam: The Haunted Asylum (2018)

We’re gonna get 1,000,000 downloads of this episode… because… it’s HAUNTED*

*not actually Haunted

Next time on Bride of the Creature: WEREWOLVES WITHIN!

Episode 116: Yokai Monsters – 100 Monsters (1968)

This wasn’t the movie I meant to pick… Still, how ’bout that Umbrella guy?

 

Join us next month for Nicole’s pick:
