92 - Lennie James Needs a Show

 They probably should have watched this instead.

This week on TheAvod your friends Count Vardulon and The Divemistress take a look at the pilot for The Walking Dead.  The DM rants once more about movie theatre etiquette and the Count asks the all-important question: do babies pay full price at the movies?  He then wonders why the opera trumps Paranormal Activity 2, and comes up with the lamest excuse ever for not keeping up with the Christopher Pike Book Club.  The two talk RED, PA2, and Dead End--not the Wrong Turn sequel, the other one with car and the dying and the stuff what makes no sense.  Tune in to hear about how the DM was knocked on her ass by Knuckle Supper.

91 - Not Feature-Length

This week on TheAvod, your friends Count Vardulon and the Divemistress discuss two wildly divergent movies, the underwhelming Cherry Tree Lane, and the surprisingly good The Stone Tape.  The DM encourages you to visit your local haunted house, even if it's kind of crappy, and the Count suggests you play the new Castlevania game.  Tune in to hear all about the best worst movie, and stay for a run down of "good" PG-13 horror movies.

90 - Tentacle Make-Out Session

It's TheAvod's 90th episode and to celebrate, Count Vardulon admits to being wrong about something.  He also admits to being woefully under-informed about Hatchet 2.  Three wildly disparate movies are under the microscope this week, the sequel to 30 Days of Night, the latest Superman/Batman pairing, and the "I-can't-believe-how-badly-marketed-this-movie-is" Monsters.  Tune in to hear all about the worst show on TV!

Poll results: It's unanimous! Social commentary must not always be present in a horror movie, not even if it's zombies.

89 - And Now, A Message From Iggy Pop

This week on TheAvod, your friends Count Vardulon and The Divemistress take a look at three wildly different films: the first is terrible, the second is slightly less terrible, and the third is hardly terrible at all.  The Count talks Dead Rising 2, giving it his highest rating.  The DM talks movie titles, giving one in particular her lowest rating.  What's in TheAvod's mailbag? Watch and see!

Poll results: Following on the "success" of Sharktopus, we asked the question, What should be the title of Syfy's next movie?  You answered 60% in favour of Countdown to Infinity.  Runner-up was a tie between Babylonium and Spiderat Moneky.
