No Rules November! continues as we cover another movie with more than 1000 views on Letterboxd. In fact, we kind of skip a lot of the details of this film and talk more about cinematic twins because we've got Lance's twin, Cody, as our guest!

It's No Rules November! That one magical time of the year when we break our 1000 views on Letterboxd rule. First up we're diving head first into the shallow end of the Ray Dennis Steckler pool and joining us is returning guest Zack Carlson, who co-wrote the 100-page booklet for the Severin box set. Just like No Rules November, we're also breaking the normal format of our discussion and having it as a much more informal chat about S...

For a deep dive into the Ramsay brothers' Purana Mandir, we've enlisted the help of Josh Hurtado, the exalted potentate of Indian cinema (ok, slight exaggeration, but he's definitely one of the most knowledgeable Westerners on this subject matter). In addition to the film, we discuss the best way to watch one of these films and some of the cultural idiosyncrasies that make films from India so unique. Josh's Twitter Spaces talk with...

Lance has taken a risk by choosing a horror comedy that very few people will find funny. But it gave us a chance to focus on one of our favorite actors, Oliver Reed. While we do get into the cast and crew, don't expect an in-depth discussion of Heckyl and Hype, as we spend most of our time talking about its star. Next episode: Purana Mandir (1984), available in the Bollywood Horrors box set from Mondo Macabro or on YouTube (turn on...

We're back in one of our favorite subgenres: rip-offs! But this time we've got one from a very unexpected country ripping off a very unexpected zombie movie.
