061 - Sexy Bee Vampire (with TJ Tallie) - Candyman (1992)

"I thought this was about Sammy Davis Jr.'s ghost!"

This week, Joshua and Joe look into a mirror and summon forth a conversation about Candyman (1992).

Our hosts welcome Dr. TJ Tallie to the Wes Craven Memorial Library. He is a professor of African History, and is seen but not heard.

The boys go deep into the politics of gay hook-up apps. Joe exoticizes White men. TJ makes his students watch Mean Girls for college credit. Joshua gushes over how romantic the Candyman is.

"If Candyman can ask for consent, and his insides are 97% bees, then so can you!"

060 - When You're Here, You're Family with Jacki from Jersey Ghouls! - ANOES 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985)

“What is a jock strap for? Is it like a bra for your junk?”

We had a blast at Monster Mania Con in New Jersey! We ate ABEETZ and drank some wooder! The boys get an education in North/South Jersey and Philly slang from special guest Jacki of the Jersey Ghouls podcast. Joe drops the soap! Joshua may have drained some energy from Jersey Ghoul Marissa's daughter in a desperate act of self preservation! The three of us talk about the really gay Freddy movie.

Check out the Jersey Ghouls if you haven't already!

056 - Fap Material - The Thing (1982)

"It wasn't sexual... at first."

We're being consumed by John Carpenter's The Thing (1982)! We discuss the upcoming Child's Play and Pet Sematary remakes, spilling imaginary tea with Lupita Nyong'o, and the state of our social media pages thanks to our latest student (ie unpaid) intern Brian! Joe gets very personal with Gus Kenworthy. Joshua goes on a rant about adaptations. We try to figure out if The Thing is about homoeroticism, the "devouring woman," or Cold War trust issues.

This episode is a sequel/reimaginaning/remake/reboot? of Fright School episode 3 GAYLIENS

055 - Buzz Buzz Buzzwords - The Fly (1986)

"Are we watching the same film?!"

This week the boys ponder the politics of insects, their own aging bodies, and the hubris of Jeff Goldblum. Joshua and Joe have very different reactions to David Cronenberg's The Fly (1986). Is it a tragic love story or just a really gross film? We're here for the body-ody-ody horror.
