The podcast where pop culture meets suicide prevention!

    #336 | Brainscan (1994)

    What would you do to get the ultimate video game experience? How about the ultimate horror experience? Edward Furlong would apparently go fairly far. School of Schlock, hosts Tom & Ryan, join us to talk about the 1994 cult classic, Brainscan. Through understanding this cult classic, we're talking about own beginnings within the genre of horror, the genre's problematic portrayal of women, the importance of community and so much more. This episode is brought you by All the Horror; a twitter celebration of all things horror in the genre and in the community.

    #333: The Curse of Audrey Earnshaw

    We’re conjuring up something spooky for this episode to talk about the coming of age, witch movie, The Curse of Audrey Earnshaw. The movie is now available on VOD and all digital platforms. Though before we get to some spells, we’re talking with Rosa Parra, LatinX Lens podcast (http://bit.ly/333guest). Rosa opens up about the need for diversity in film critique & podcasting alike and film recommendations to better understate the Latin cultural experience. Rosa joins Captain Nostalgia and staff writer, Mark Pettit, to discuss the mother-daughter dynamics of Audrey, the history of witches in media (& as a religion, at least from an outside perspective) & much more.

    Invincible Dragon | Minisode #6

    Invincible Dragon | Minisode #6

    Have you ever wondered what a Martial Arts movie would be like under the direction of Tommy Wiseau? Yes, the director of The Room. Look no further than Invincible Dragon. This movie is a camp classic silently waiting in the wings. It’s not only campy but equally nostalgic. Serving as a love letter to the Kung Fu films of the 1960s. Captain Nostalgia and our editor-in-chief, Cam Smith, break down the craziest moments, weird theories and more of the movie. You can pick up your copy wherever you get your digital or physical media beginning October 6th, 2020.
