On our 4th episode Murf weights in on the Amy’s Baking Co. melt down. We mourn the loss of a legend. In case you missed it: we talk about the most impractical Kung Fu weapon of all time and the “Honey Badger” of martial artists. Super Man stomps a mud hole in Gokus ass while we drool over Eric Powells Goon.Monsters teams up to take over the world in the board game Smash up. Then we talk about how much we enjoyed the new Star Trek film despite it’s lack of bitchin space abs.
The Massive One went to see Iron Man 3 tonight… and it was good, I liked it better than two. Going in I’ve heard mixed reviews through podcast and written, but I’ll make my own judgment, if you will. And The Massive One enjoyed it… Well, there was that whole fake Mandarin situation which I thought was a cop out. I’m not a huge Ben Kingsley fan, but he was good until he got goofy.
People have said, there wasn’t a lot of Iron Man action and or Tony Stark in the suit, but I like the direction it went. And how the story unfolded was Massive! Like the rise and fall of Tony Stark.
The heat seeking people reminded me of something out of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, but I digress. They were fine. Now then! The parts that I thought was Massive… When Stark’s mansion was getting blown up and he through the suit on Pepper that was a mark-out moment, like Hogan slamming Andre or Punk dropping the pipe bomb. Another moment of Massive was when Pepper returned from the flaming ashes of fire to take out Aldrich. I mean I didn’t see that coming, thought she was dead. I guess you can’t kill fire with fire or a Johnny Storm type.
The Avengers / Aliens in New York references was a good nod and glad to see Stan Lee back with the perfect ten. Overall, it’s a buy when it hits baby blu. And I’ll give it a three star frog splash. Massive.
Trailers that previewed.
White House Down – Action Comedy that looks promising. (No Joke)
World War Z – Who doesn’t want to see it, I red the book (Audio Style) and liked it.
Fast & Furious 6 – The Rock, need I say more. Okay, I haven’t seen any of the sequels past The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
Thor: The Dark World – Hope it’s better than the first film.

Lord Blood-Rah’s Nerve Wrackin’ Auditorium presents a classic story of man against nature…both wild, untamed nature and base human nature! Here is an exciting tale of betrayal starring Mr. Vincent Price! From “Escape!” comes the shocker Bloodbath!
Welcome to our MY BLOODY VALENTINE episode. We check out the new remake that is now out in theaters and compare it to the original. And in this episode you will probably hear us at our drunkest. It gets pretty crazy. And get the tissues ready as during listner mail we get an email that brings Bryan and Producer Amanda to tears. You’ll find out why. Keep an eye out for a My Bloody Valentine commentary up later this week.
Reasons why Black Cat (@FlairChops) shouldn’t take the word of Meltzer.
Dave Meltzer is a man that can’t be trusted! His love of pro wrestling is fading and it’s fading fast, thanks to his new love MMA.
Back in the 80′s he was the dirt sheet king and in the 90′s his word was gospel, but now he’s corrupting the minds of the new generation of wrestling fans by talking about MMA and being wrong on numerous occasions.
For example look at Black Cat, his mind is so corrupted he’s paying for the Wrestling Observer when he can get dirt sheet news for free! And he thinks Meltzer is a wrestling god… Which is crazy, because JBL is the true wrestling god. Black Cat also listens to the Wrestling Observer podcast and word on the street is, if you listen to it backwards you can hear Meltzer saying “Subscribe, Buy, and Obey”.
What I’m saying is Black Cat from The Old School Wrestling Podcast needs our help. Meltzer has him brainwashed and it’s up to us to help him. And how do we do that? By listening to The Old School Wrestling Podcast, Emailing in and telling him how wrong Dave Meltzer is. Also tweet Black Cat at @FlairChops with your thoughts on Meltzer. Massive.
After the longest hiatus any of our podcasts have ever seen The Castle Rock Podcast is back! Myself and my new regular co-host Wes sit down with friend and fellow DZPN member El Goro to talk about Stephen King’s most controversial book to date Rage. What has caused this book to be taken out of print by King himself? In our short story selection we cover The Lawnmower Man. We discuss this crazy little story and about how this story is also pretty controversial when it comes to King but in a completely different way. It more deals with the film adaptation. All that and much more. Music is from The Lawnmower Man films and video games.
Another episode from the vault while we recoup from people being on vacation, conventions, and whatever other lame excuses we can come up with. But in case you haven’t heard it we’re bringing you our interview with Adam Green from back in our Spiral press junket. We ask him about his work on Hatchet, Spiral, and what he wants to do outside of the horror genre.
We’re back! And as promised it’s time to talk about the classic haunted hotel story The Shining. We talk about the book, the two adaptations, and add a short story selection to our line up for each episode. Since we’re talking about haunted hotels we figured the best short story to team up with The Shining would be 1408. We also discuss briefly the movie adaption starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. Some clips in this episode are of a story about Stephen King on Primetime Live, Stephen King at a live event telling a story about when he first talked to Stanley Kubrick, Shelly Duvall and Kubrick but heads on set but she talks about their working process, Jack Nicholson chats about what you bring to the table when working on a Kubrick film, and finally John Cusack does an interview with a show in France about working on 1408. Music is from The Shining (1980), The Shining (1997), and 1408. Check out our friends at The King Cast and the Everything’s Eventual Movie. Enjoy!
In this week’s episode Murf and the Fat Kid take on the mooches at free comic day, an email from a listener looking for a game, and Rubber a film about a killer tire. We talk about our feelings about Iron Man 3 and how it could be fixed.
Yay a psychotic clown movie! Welcome back my painted freaks. Next up Chemical Burn’s “Sloppy the Psychotic” directed by Mike O’Mahony and written by Mike O’Mahony and Erich Fiche who brought you “Deadly Detour” and starring a bunch of unknowns. This is the lowest of the budget, independent as it can be, of productions.
OK psychotic clowns. The idea is a valid one. Clowns are creepy. John Wayne Gace confirmed this. I get it. However this concept is a BIT over used. Any way I jumped in head first. I had to look up the title twice. You would think it would be “Sloppy the Psychotic Clown”. Oh no I confirmed it. It is simply “Sloppy the Psychotic” thereby cheating itself of hundreds of dollars being sold to the Juggalo crowd.
Pore ole Sloppy. He is hassled by his father to get a real job. He gets picked on by a douche bag while picking up groceries in his home made clown car. Then he is accused of child abuse and is fired. Really, what kind of child draws a picture of a girl holding a clown’s hand who has his dick out for no good reason? So what does Sloppy do? Turn to the demon alcohol of course. Now Sloppy is a big guy, as am I. The small ammount of alcohol Sloppy takes on board would not push me over the edge. Really nothing in this movie really seems bad enough to force someone into a psychotic break with reality. Plus we are talking pretty piss poor acting as well.
Let’s talk about the box art here. Nevermind the fact it is a clown imposed over “Attack the Block” box art. You will never see Sloppy the superhero flying from building to building. Hell this flick isn’t even in a city! The box art may have cost more than the film itself.
So from the tired plot, to the lack of action, to the bad effects, to the bad acting, the over use of dissolves, and the over all unimpressive and unoriginal script, I did not care for this fifth graders back yard film.
Hello my happy holiday trippers. This time I watched the British film “Hollow” directed by Michael Axelgaard (Lollipop Man 2009), written by Matthew Holt (Lollipop Man 2009) starring Emily Plumbtree as Emma the sweet asthmatic girl, Sam Stockman as James the jilted film guy, Jessica Ellerby (Get Him to the Greek 2010) as Lynne the blonde, and Matt Stokoe as Scott the douche bag.
Well to tell the truth I had no idea this was going to be a found footage movie. To tell the truth I don’t really care for found footage movies on the whole, and this movie is why. It was BORING. The story is as old as the hills. Two couples go on a road trip. First couple is the nice girl and the douche bag and they are engaged. The second couple is the rejected lover of the good girl, and a girl he brought is bait to lure the douche bag to pounce. Injected into this weak sauce is a tree where couples find themselves compelled to hang themselves together due to a medieval legand of a monk and a squire’s daughter who hung them selves there. There were two versions of the tale. One was the monk confessed his love and the squire wouldn’t allow the union so they hung themselves to be together, or the monk confesses his love and is rejected so he strung up the squire’s daughter and hung himself next to her.
Any way like I said you watch these insufferable characters all the way to the end and they end up in a car. At the end in the car is the most exciting part of the movie but still drags it’s ass alittle too slowly for me. That is probably due to the fact that these characters are annoying. The good girl you should feel for, right? You should care she has asthma and needs an inhaler. The inhaler started to piss me off. Look, if I was going to marry some chick who constantly has to tug off an inhaler I would have one within reach at ALL TIMES. Why is it constantly getting misplaced? After the first time, I would’ve stapled one to her chest.
How do they explain the camera being on? Because the camera’s light only works when then the camera is filming. OK I guess that would explain why they reach for the camera in the “scary bits”.
This movie was BORING I do not recommend it, PASS.
When this DVD first came out it was marketed as a documentary with an extra couple disc of matches, like the E does. Well, as TNA Impact Wrestling likes to do they swerved everyone, even The Massive One!
This set is four disc and for the most part it’s good, if you don’t already own the majority of matches thanks to other TNA DVD collections. All four disc have the same formate, starting with a short segment with Double J talking about his life and career then afterwards you get a match. Times that by four disc you might be just skipping the matches for the Double J segments.
One thing this compilation has going for it is the early NWA-TNA Nashville Era matches with Raven, Ron Killings, Vince Russo, and a young AJ Styles. The timeline of the matches are in order from early NWA-TNA to when TNA broke away from the NWA alliance. But none of the matches are from the Impact Wrestling era, when they dropped the TNA call letters.
Not only will you be hearing from Double J himself, but people like Sting, Jim Cornette, AJ Styles, Dutch Mantell, Terry Taylor, and good ol’ Dixie Carter to name a few.
On disc four you do have five extra matches from CWA with Jarrett facing the likes of Jerry Lawler, Hector Guerrero, and Cactus Jack.
Well, with all that said I say it’s a buy. I mean I don’t see the E putting together a Double J DVD in the future. Massive… Slap Nuts!
Odd events and awful goings on dominate Lord Blood-Rah’s Nerve Wrackin’ Auditorium tonight as a house of evil spreads it’s ghastly influence! From “Suspense!” comes the shocker The House in Cypress Canyon!
Anyone that has listened to us in the past few years you’ll know that we’re big fans of Jen and Sylvia Soska. We screened their movie Dead Hooker In A Trunk in 2010 at our film festival and just recently reviewed their follow up film American Mary. When we heard that they were going to be at C2E2 we were elated as we were finally going to get to meet them in the flesh. They were nice enough to give us a few minutes of their time to chat on the mic so we could all say how much we loved each other. They give us a scoop on their next film. We recorded this on the floor of C2E2 and it was a little loud. I had to do some tweaking so you can hear what we’re saying but it does have a little bit of an underwater effect. Deal with it. Make sure you stop by the Twisted Twins website to check out what the ladies are up to.
In the lead up to the release of the new Castle Rock Podcast episode I present another classic episode where we talk about King’s vampire tale Salem’s Lot. The newest episode has been recorded so in a few more weeks you’ll be hearing an all new episode. Until then I hope you enjoy these classic episodes. The original show notes:
Well after an unplanned break we’re finally back with episode 2. We delve into Stephen King’s vampire novel Salem’s Lot. Lot’s of discussion on what has happened to the vampire in current fiction. We chat about the multiple movie adaptations, what we’ve been reading outside of King, and read some comments from the website (which as of this writing is wonky). Also Blake from the 2 In 1 Showcase On Comics Podcast stops in to review King’s current vampire project American Vampire.
Music from this show is from the original 1979 movie adaptation and one song after our adapation discussion is from the new 2004 version. All the music was provided to us by Brother D over at Mail Order Zombie. Much thanks to them.
Strange forces take control of Lord Blood-Rah’s Nerve Wrackin’ Auditorium this week as a mild mannered man fights for control of his very soul! From “Mystery in the Air!” comes the classic tale The Horla starring Peter Lorre!
Back in the day when we were popular and actually tried to have some journalistic integrity we some how got asked if we wanted to interview the cast and crew from Spiral. We of course said yes. We got to interview Co-Director Adam Green, co-star Zachary Levi, and star, writer, co-director Joel David Moore. So in order to relive our glory days here is our interview with Joel David Moore. We chat some about Grandma’s Boy and all around tom foolery. Enjoy.
As you all saw yesterday I posted that Patrick has done a dramatic reading of my short story THE INCIDENT AT BOWLING BALL TREE. He has given me permission to post the episode here. You should be listening to his show anyway but in case you’re not enjoy the story here. I listened to it and actually got goosebumps. From my own story! here is the original show notes from Scream Queenz:
In this week’s very special episode, I’ll be reading INCIDENT AT BOWLING BALL TREE, an original short story written by Drunken Zombie‘s BRYAN “Blumpkin King” WOLFORD. It’s a nostalgic little tale about the bygone summer days of youth, filled with baseball games, swimmin’ holes, and really, really pissed off wolves. Really, do I need to say anything else? I thought not.
Special thanks to Peder Bjærum Helland for his original instrumental music for the story.
Check out his YouTube Channel with more of his compositions HERE.
Additional Music: “The Werewolf” by Barry Dransfeild
WrestleMania 29 weekend was filled with wrestling events surrounding the New York – New Jersey area, but nothing was hotter than $5 Wrestling and it’s main event buildup, that took place at WrestleCon.
Five Dollar Wrestling Champion Freight Train made an open challenge with his title on the line to anyone that is man enough to face him and try to strip him of his title… and what came from that challenge is now wrestling history.
If you seen the preview video at HightSpots you know what went down, I won’t spoil it for you.
Overall, any of the Live $5 Wrestling events is a buy and Live 4 is no different. Colt and Marty did a good job entertaining and interacting with the crowd while commentating. Also a couple guest stopped by, such as Mr. 1859 Cliff Compton, Kevin Steen, and let’s not forget drunk guy “Charlie Haas”.
The only extra is a promo with Freight Train and Jake Manning promoting WrestleCon and the open challenge.
Bam Bam Bigelow vs. Jack Hammer
Cujo vs. Otter
Metal Manaic vs. Coach Tom Costello
Bobby Piper vs. Psychotron
Steve Corino vs. Mr. Puerto Rico
