We go so much great feedback from our last “You Should Watch It”, we decided to make it a regular addition to the podcast. We love it because it allows us to venture deep into the archives and find classics that are just outside of our action wheelhouse.
This episode is exactly one of those situations. We don’t normally cover scifi and we’ve NEVER done a horror movie. So, why not both? Melissa and Dominic are huge horror fans (anyone want our Shudder login?) and were right at home with a classic horror with amazing practical effects. John is the scifi geek and loves the flamethrower cops in special suits running around the sewers.
Oh yeah, and its got a fantastic cast! We love C.H.U.D. as much as we love Toxie and we think you’ll love it too.
Podcast, but in YouTube form!
