Cult Film Club Podcast

On this very special holiday edition of the Cult Film Club, hosts Shawn, Paxton and Jaime finally tackle the most awesome genre Christmas film of all time, Gremlins.  Released in 1984 and directed by Joe Dante, this film is the perfect mash-up of family film and gross out horror fun.  Starring Zach Galligan and Phoebe Cates, the flick centers on a strange creature called a mogwai that is presented as a Christmas gift to Billy Peltzer by his inventor father.  Before the audience knows what to make of the mogwai Gizmo, he multiplies and the litter of new critters soon morph into an army of tiny murderous Gremlins.  Can Billy and his girlfriend Kate save the town of Kingston Falls before the Gremlins destroy it?

Introducing a new set of episodes to the Cult Film Club called The Concession Stand.  Basically, in between our main single-movie-focused episodes, Paxton, Shawn and Jaime will be recording some smaller, bite-sized episodes dealing with other cool cult film related topics that don't quite fit into the normal shows.  So grab a box of candy, get a frosty beverage and join us as we take a look at the fringes of cult cinema.  On this first episode we spend some time discussing the world of movie novelizations.  What we love about them, what we don't, what it's like collecting them, and what we wish we'd see in the hobby.

On this episode of the Cult Film Club, Shawn, Jaime and Pax break out their Powell/Peralta skateboards and do some pool shredding while discussing the 1989 flick Gleaming the Cube.  Starring Christian Slater, the movie is a mix of skating action wrapped around a mid-80s-era Cannon Asian crime drama.  Weird, but so worth the viewing, if only for the angsty Footloose-style skateboard dancing scene performed by the badass Rodney Mullen.  So strap on your elbow and knee pads and join us on the half pipe as we dig into this flick.
