Ep96: He's Been Usin' Brand X!

On today's episode, Ian and Graham get trashy with trailer talk as they dive into the recent glut of summer-movie previews and fan rumors. How much info is too much to give away? Do movie studios really know what they're doing, or should we listen to the Dorito-dust-doused-fanboy speculation that Josh Trank's Fantastic Four is Dr. Doomed to failure?

Also, Ian provides his semi-weekly reminder about the upcoming Chicago Critics Film Festival, and raves about Gorilla Tango Theatre's newest parody, Thunderballs: A James Bond Boylesque! In a world...where darkness reigns...and evil...stalks the land...Episode 96...shines...a...light!

Anthony Kosar, and modern sci-fi icon Doug Jones! All that plus a contest, and a few words about Bio-Dome's Blu-ray debut! Episode 95 is packed to the gills and ready to thrill!

Also, Ian talks up the latest KtS Contest, teases Thursday's big Chicago Critics Film Festival announcement, and remembers a slew of horror-movie celebrities who passed this week. The KtS Podcast kicks into high gear with Episode 94!

Ep92: Born Every Minute

Once again, Graham talks Ian down from the ledge as the guys discuss David Robert Mitchell's indie-horror sensation, It Follows. Have they both seen it? No, but that doesn't hinder a robust conversation on the waning effectiveness of genre films.

Also, Ian forgets to wish Graham a "Happy Birthday" on air; promotes his movie-reviewing mistress, the upcoming Chicago Critics Film Festival; and talks about his deeply personal connection with Arthur Penn's hippie manifesto, Alice's Restaurant (now available on blu-ray from Olive Films). The only way to shake Episode 92 is to pass it along to someone else!
