Join them for a hot, fresh, piece of Baked Xavier while they discuss the greatest face-off of all time, Mr. Jingles vs. Ramirez; and some other classic pairings. All theories are laid out on the table, including some that actually might not be bullshit.

Cecily and A.Ron dissect the latest episode of FX’s American Horror Story: 1984, “Slashdance”. Who is a friend? Who is an enemy? Nobody knows, but we are taking on all theories!

Cecily and A.Ron dissect the latest episode of FX’s American Horror Story: 1984, “Mr. Jingles”. We discuss all hyper hiker ghostly and/or time traveling theories, Brooke’s very bad day, the finer points of hog washing, and question how we can possibly endure the world’s longest night. Then in the mailbag, a listener blows our minds with evidence of just how long this night may last.
Cecily and A.Ron dish on the premiere episode of FX’s American Horror Story: 1984, “Camp Redwood”. It’s a great looking episode where the cast is having a lot of fun, and there are 1980’s horror tropes aplenty, but that fun comes at the expense of , well… the Horror. Still, fun counts a lot for us, so we’re all in.

Merry Christmas, Jason Miller! Your wife, Aime thought it would be a nice present to commission you a pair of podcasts to open beneath the tree. This is one of them, 1984’s cult horror classic, “The Toxic Avenger”. Directed by Michael Herz and “starring” Mitch Cohen, Mark Torgl, Andree Maranda, it’s a work of pure cinematic insanity of over the top and cheaply filmed gore, sex, violence, and sexual violence. We discuss Troma films in general, pollution, dick punching, and much more as we attempt to review a movie that defies criticism.
Sean Ray commissioned one of his favorite movies, the Coen Brothers’ 1984 directorial debut, Blood Simple. Starring Coen favorite Frances McDormand, it’s an interesting look into the prehistorical fossil Coen record. So many shots and themes established in this first film go on to make up the DNA of their later works. You’ll see Fargo, Miller’s Crossing, No Country for Old Men, and even a few dashes of Raising Arizona and The Big Lebowski in this film. Having said that, there is a whole helluva lot of 1980’s film making and first time directing on display as well.
