    084 - Withnail And I

    Perhaps the finest cult film known to humanity, this week Sam and Dan dive into Arrow Video's release of WITHNAIL & I, Bruce Robinson's endlessly quotable and fondly loved British comedy starring Richard E. Grant, Paul McGann, Richard Griffiths and Ralph Brown.

    Other film recommendations of a similar vein this week include LOST WEEKEND and GUEST PARADISO, plus reviews of recently-seen films including VIVARIUM. NB: Apologies for a slight technical hitch with Sam's microphone towards the end of the episode.

    080 - Dream Demon

    This week, Sam and Dan tackle DREAM DEMON - a terrific blend of psychological horror and late 80s practical gore effects featuring Jimmy Nail and Timothy Spall.

    079 - White Fire

    This week Sam and Dan tackle the infamous exploitation epic WHITE FIRE starring Robert Ginty and Fred Williamson, a so-bad-it's-good action 80s film about the legendary ‘White Fire’ diamond — a priceless rock so hot it actually burns those who try to lay their hands on it!

    Other film recommendations this week include such films as DEADLY PREY, TIGER ON THE BEAT and THE INFORMANT.

Funny and intelligent

Awesome podcast, sam and Dan are a great duo. Very knowledgeable on all cinema (both schlock and classics)
This is not your typical movie podcast where they go into depth on the film, but if you want a quick discussion like you might have with likeminded friends or are looking to learn a little more on an arrow release before you buy give them a listen!

One of the Best

Sam and Dan have the knowledge film fans wish they had. From an analytical, practical, or outsider’s point of view, they break down films perfectly and sell everything they speak about. It’s a top 5 show for sure.
