As we do every podcast, the Professor and I dish up:
- Your recommendations of what's in the theater or on TV,
- This week's top 3 list: Ways childhood is different today than in the 1970s.
- And the movie review: Blood Freak (1972)
Join us for another round of retro-babble, dumbed-down movie critiques, and an overload of trivial pop culture connections. Enjoy the show!
Read on for the screenshot gallery:
Your humble narrator, Brad F. Grinter (co-writer and co-director of Blood Freak), who lectures us about the perils of drugs and chemicals in our food... whilst chain smoking (and hacking up a lung at the end of the film).
Our main characters: The angelic Angel, studly and stupid Herschell, and slutty drug addict Ann.
Guy, the drug dealer. He gets poor Herschell hooked... bad things follow.
Herschell and Angel enjoy a spot of tea with the head of a turkey ranch. This is Hersh's lucky day - he gets offered a job tending turkeys.
Herschell gives in to the dark side, and does drugs with Ann... then bangs her.
Did I mention Herschell is a badass mother f***er?
Herschell agrees to be the guinea pig for some crazy experiments goin' down at the turkey ranch.
Read this next sentence very slowly and carefully. Herschell grows a turkey head and begins murdering residents around the Florida Turnpike.
Ann is worried about Herschell. She'd go out and look for him, but she's too busy getting raped by drug dealers.
Where does it all lead? Will Herschell forever be trapped inside the head of turkey, sentenced to a life of killing white trash of the Florida Turnpike? Tune in to find out!
