    Time to dive in again, maniacs! We're still swimming down the Underwater Uneasiness theme for this month with James Cameron's sci-fi flick The Abyss! Tune in as we discuss other topics such as Cabin Boy himself Chris Elliot popping up in a cameo role, our loving nickname for Michael Biehn's wacko character, and an important question: did this movie introduce the world to the Nintendo Power Glove?

Great podcast- heavy on comedic vocal stylings

Good 80s horror podcast! In The early episodes one of the hosts is pretty funny doing impressions every once in a while. As time has gone on the podcasts are filled with him and his impressions. It’s distracting but it appears this is the format they are going with. While the constant vocal stylings of the host grinds my nerves, I’m still trying to give the later episodes a shot. The podcast in itself is informing and the selections are fantastic! Give it a listen if you’re a 80s fan!
