196 - Strobe Lights Confuse Ghosts

This week on TheAvod, your friends Count Vardulon and DM really don't like 2/3 of what they watched. While Apartment 143 might have some interesting character stuff, the film's attempts at novelty are drowned out by loud noises, and in a new segment which they're calling "Loonie Movies," DM and the Count consider whether Last of the Living is worth a dollar. The Next Three Days, on the other hand, is well worth seeing even though it stars Russell Crowe. Tune in to find out what is and isn't an action movie, and stay to hear about the greatest SNL skit that isn't about cowbells.

  1. Loonie movies - good segment, by all means lets have more. Kinda like those collections of 'fifty horror classics' for $10 that load up on Poverty Row public domain films (with lots of
    Bela Lugosi) and strawberry-jam gore flicks from the'50's & '60's.

    BTW, is it me or are there no Full Moon Video films in your review archives? They were big here in New England in the late '80's & early '90's. Surely you have strong opinion on at least the Puppet Master series?

  2. Here's some truth: I've never seen a Puppet Master movie. I will put the question to the Count on the next show. I think I've seen Gingerbread Man, but I can't be sure if I'm remembering correctly. And The Pit and the Pendulum will be coming up in Loonie Movies eventually (if the one we have is the Full Moon release).
