If You Wannabe My Tenant

This week we were supposed to have a very special guest from London but they decided instead to take a magical day trip with their old nanny. Left in the lurch and still having to watch her pick, The Florida Project, a slice of wonderfully performed indie drama with some pretty heavy issues that don't stem from anything on screen. Then Tyler makes us watch Spice World, because of wicked plotting in the night, which has different kinds of issues stemming from our evolving cultural understanding and perceptions. Sometimes looking back just makes you forever cringe.
All that and Kevin forces someone he claims to love down a dark path, Chris admits to pricing out how much he can sell his middle child for, and Dave has to put down his high horse after it broke a leg jumping over one of his wide gaps in reasoning. 
Join us, won't we?

Two Kinds of Ghastly Love

This week a pair of necrophiliac dream. First up Johnny X is banished to Earth for being a naughty 1950s biker gang leader and stealing the Resurrection Suit, when an unscrupulous concert promoter approaches him with an offer he can't refuse.... shenanigans ensue in this throwback homage to a vintage time. Then, inspired by a real case, The Man takes to the local mortuaries to get his sexy time on and deal with his feelings for the neighborhood hippie... shenanigans ensue in this Swiss product that isn't a pocket knife or cocoa mix.
A new guest emerges from the mists and more as RotP tackles The Ghastly Love of Johnny X and Bloodlust (aka Mosquito the Rapist)!

A Falcon Amongst Ewoks

This week we take the easy way and dive deep into some Waters of the River Lucas to get our Star Wars on. Plus it's our 100th episode... YAY! We take a look at Star Wars: Episode IV- A New Hope, Caravan of Courage, Battle for Endor, and Solo A Star Wars Story. Three out of four hurt someone, so even in this special time of celebration.... old habits die hard. Join us, won't we?

The Necrophiliac Adventures of Hawk and Cody

This week RotP is joined by a returning guest to take a look at two wildly different films. First up is Bruce Willis' smug ode to himself, Hudson Hawk! Then we take a look at Walter Hill's unique vision of another place and another time where there are Streets of Fire.
All that and... who am I kidding? I gave away the twist in the title. There's a lot of talk about necrophiles. This is the episode on RotP where we get sued for slander. Join us, won't we?

Gotta Ketchum All

     This week a Recurring Guest brings his love of horror and Josh Stewart to RotP. First, a semi-reformed thief has to steal a jewel from a family of rich assholes. He gets more than he bargained for when he also has to match wits with a magical serial killing carpenter in The Collector. After a narrow escape we board the train straight to Tylertown for our second Jack Ketchum adaption. Ray Pye is a mopey asshole in a town full of brain damaged incompetent cops which allows him to murder and eventually go on a fun kidnapping spree in The Lost. Finally we got to take tourist photos with the Godmonster of Indian Flats. I really don't know how to describe it... it's something... special? Sure, why not?

     All that and Tyler talks about salmon, Dave just can't with something, Kevin reveals intimate details of how his marriage works, and Craig shifts blame like a 1980s televangelist caught with his penis in the collection plate. Join us, won't we?

Bob Made a Prison

Dave has always been a listless, drifting, directionless, couch jockey, slacker until the day he decides to make a maze in his girlfriend's living room and his unreasonable desire to complete it no matter who he kills in the process. Are you ready to face the consequences when Dave Made a Maze? His maze is bigger on the inside, which isn't something that can be said about Dave. Either Dave... movie Dave is a bit of a useless ass and OUR Dave is a shallow hate machine but he's pretty.
Our very special guest takes a chance to spread the love of one of his favorites, Bob Gale's rightfully overlooked road movie Interstate 60. Is it a sweetly moralized film about a man finding himself or is it the hate filled rantings of a massively rich asshole who thinks because he made a classic that people would be suckered into watching his hateful shit because he calls in every favor he has on the books? Maybe it's both with a nice dollop of flat whimsy! Oh joy! At least there's a Ginger Oldman.
Finally we take a look at our first real Women-in-Prison movie. A venerable exploitation genre that we have woefully overlooked. That this trip turns out to be to one of the genre's best and most strongly girl power series is not at all a purposeful decision. Six convicts escape and go on a beautiful, brilliant, and bizarre adventure for freedom. Female Prisoner Scorpion: Jailhouse 61 
This week a guest steps up to fill the large haggis shaped hole left in our hearts by a missing cohost, Tyler proves again there is only love in his heart for movies not even their mothers could love, Dave says "fuck" a lot, and Craig learns a few valuable lessons about life in the big house.

You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream When It's Tyler's Turn to Pick

The week we take a look at a cult classic and a steamy indie drama. First up, we take a look at Below Her Mouth. It's the story of a fashion editor and the roofer she is irresistibly drawn to. Then the bottomless vat of pure sex named Clint Howard drives up in a van that could pass any health inspection to hand out some homemade frosty treats. He's the Ice Cream Man and no one will stop him from his appointed rounds. Not even Jan-Michael Vincent.
Also Dave gets two charitable donations returned, Craig adjusts to life outside the monastery, Kevin finally admits he has Ted Logan on his Pass List, and Tyler abides.
