Ep 105: Sleepaway Camp (with live audio commentary)

August 11th, 2017

How does one cope when their partner is killed in a boating accident? I suspect its not suddenly change the gender of one of your children causing innumerable deaths some years later at a co-ed kids camp, but who are we to judge. This episode marks a lot firsts and lasts.

To start, this episode was recorded in June, planned for July, and releasing in August. Quite a bit has changed since then. First, we got the old opening song. a classic to be sure. Next, we have for the first time a real LIVE audio commentary of the film in its entirety. You can skip to minute mark 10:10 to get right to it, just make sure you got the original movie queued up. Finally, you'll hear a familiar voice from TWR previous. While not Willows official last episode at the time, this marks her last full appearance on the show.

Of course there are gags a plenty including wondering why everyone is at a 9.5 on the anger scale, enjoying the couselors Steve Perry and AC Slater-Baio, and asking "where is the curling iron going?"

So sit back, turn on this campy schlock-filling summer camp horror movie, and listen to the dulcimer tones of our voices as we do our best mediocre MST3K impression. Thanks and enjoy!!!

down? Then why not take a trip down memory lane and later, you can have a Total Recall of it later! Yes, 1990 strikes again
as we watched Total Recall. Another Paul Verhoeven vehicle that keeps you asking "what the hell is going on" long after
you wanted too. Listen in as Arnold tries to seperate dream from reality and Greg proposes a whole new take on the plot.

Total Recall's greatest hits:
-Chekhov's nuclear wessels
