On this special "lost" episode of the Cult Film Club we reach back into our archive to save a show that we thought was unrecoverable after we recorded it last year. Thanks to some technical wizardry we were able to piece together our discussion on 1987's Gary Marshall fish out of water romantic comedy, Overboard! We talk about our favorite scenes, the obvious chemistry between real-life lovebirds Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, the great child actors, and the fun score and soundtrack. So knock yourself on the head, get abducted by a single handyman and join us as we go overboard for Overboard.

On this episode of the Cult Film Club Shawn, Jaime and Paxton dig into the 1987 Michael J. Fox rock drama, Light of Day. Directed by Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, American Gigalo) and co-staring Joan Jett, Light of Day was a commercial and critical failure, but we feel it deserves a closer look. So quit your job at the tray-stamping plant, buy an econo van and go on tour with us as we dig into a very overlooked gem.

On this episode of Cult Film Club Jaime, Shawn and Pax discuss the controversial Disney classic, Song of the South from 1946 starring James Baskett, Bobby Driscoll and Hattie McDaniel.  We discuss the movie, the music and of course the controversy surrounding the subject matter of the movie and why it has never been released on home video in North America.

On this mini episode of the show we visit the Concession Stand to talk a bit about Gremlins 2.  After covering the first film on episode 43 of the show we also ended up talking about the sequel, but it was too much for one episode, and not enough for two.  So sit back as we have a short conversation about the sequel, Phoebe Cates' horrible head gear, evolved Gremlins, Joe Dante's penchant for making cartoon movies, and why the salad gremlin rules all.

On this episode of the Cult Film Club Jaime, Pax and Shawn are kicking off year five of the show by covering one of our favorite Henson fantasy flicks, Labyrinth from 1986.  Though the film was a financial flop when it was released, it has become a cult hit over the past 30 years, to a point where it might just be one of Jim Henson's most beloved films.  Starring Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie, the film is a modern day fairy tale all about that awkward balance between dreams and reality and when to let go of your childhood.  Featuring astounding creature designs inspired by artist Brian Froud, music by Bowie and sporting a script co-written by Monty Python's Terry Jones the film is unlike anything else that was released before or after.
