EurocultAV Doomed Moviethon Movie Party #2: Werewolf Shadow

Scott of EurocultAV.com and I had such a blast at our first movie party that we are having another one! Here are some choice moments from Twitter while we watched Pieces. We used #piecesofgeorge to mark this historic event. Here are some choice moments:

We are going to do this again with the essential Paul Naschy film: Werewolf Shadow. At the stroke of midnight (Eastern Central Time) on January 31st, start the film and join us on Twitter so we can frolic in the slow motion vampires and sexual power of Waldemar Daninsky. This time, use #NaschyShadow to be a part of the fun. Be sure to follow us on Twitter: @EuroCultAV and @doomedmoviethon and we'll see you on January 31st!

Hello! This is the Doomed Show Classic!

To take advantage of every online format available today and also to celebrate new episodes being recorded THIS MONTH, I uploaded a classic episode of Hello! This is the Doomed Show to YouTube. Brad, Jeffrey, Nafa, and I are looking forward to killing it in 2015. KILLING IT! I'd tell you every single movie that we plan to talk about but um... that would be really dumb of me. You said you loved surprises!

Grindhouse Video [Tampa]

Some kind soul on The Facebook invited me to like a place right here in Tampa called Grindhouse Video. It didn't take me long to get off my butt and go investigate. Like most things in Tampa, Grindhouse Video is awesome! It is a small store next to a comic book shop/record store and a barber shop. What more could you possibly ask for? Mike, the owner, was there to tell us about the shop and be very friendly. He said, "How many stores can you walk into that are playing Fright Night 2? And on VHS?" Seriously though, how many? Now when I say it's a small store, don't think it's not packed with gory goodness. Here are just a few titles that I saw: August Underground's Penance, The Manson Family, Horror House on Highway 5, Countess Dracula, Faces of Death III, Graduation Day, etc. Of course, it's not all horror. GV caters to all your cult movie needs (including but not limited to screwball comedies, action, and kung-fu). Seriously. I highly recommend this place!

Please note: I only photographed half the store! Not pictured: the Blu-ray section, the boxsets, and much more!

Doomed Moviethon EurocultAV Movie Party #1 - Pieces

So we tried this over the weekend with a double feature of Graduation Day and Pieces but alas, I had a migraine and had to bail. So we're trying it again. Doomed Moviethon in conjunction with EurocultAV.com is having a Movie Party. At midnight EST this Saturday (that's 11pm for you Central Time peeps), we are going to have a showing of Pieces. Where is this happening? On Twitter and Facebook! Where else? I'm hoping that we can have this little Movie Party once a month.

So anyway, start the film at the stroke of midnight (or 11pm or whatever your corresponding time zone may be) and we'll all hang out and get destroyed like a BASTARD BASTARD BASTARD!! Remember, this event is this Saturday, 12/27/14. Be there or end up in Pieces. The hashtag for the event is #piecesofgeorge so don't forget to use it and abuse it.

Doomed Show Presents #1 - Comic Books

In an effort to prove to you that we are, in fact, nerds, Brad and I recorded an episode on comic books. Since we are not talking about horror movies, we decided to make Doomed Show Presents, a little offshoot of the legendary Hello! This is the Doomed Show. Things like books, spaghetti westerns, TV shows, food, pirate stories, and old kites will be discussed in this series which we will do from time to time. If you like this first episode then "Merry Christmas!" If you don't like it then "Merry f__king Christmas!"

Hello! This is the Doomed Show will resume properly in the 2015. Jeffrey, Brad, Nafa, and I all have crazy ideas and lists of things we want to talk about in the world of slashers, gialli, and European horror as we are wont to do! So there you go! Have a nice week.

Listen here.

We're on the iTunes.

H!TITDS Episode #61 - The Kindred

It's the last episode of 2014? Really? Yep, it's true. Our hiatus which started -like 2 months- ago is finally kicking in. We will be back in January (and if you're nice and not too naughty, there may be a special surprise from Brad and I in two weeks). But yeah, Jeffrey and I recorded our talk on The Kindred a while back and I put it in the "Rainy Day Episodes" folder until now. It's a good time episode, that's for real. Listen and write in to the show (doomedmoviethon [at] gmail.com). You should suggest a film for us to cover. If we haven't done it before, we'll totally cover it in 2015. Or just write in to let us know if you hate us!

Listen here.

We're on the iTunes as well. If you're into that kind of thing.

Screw Thanksgiving, Here's A Halloween Blog Exclusive!

Back in September, I watched 9 Halloween films in one day. It was pretty awesome. I tried to have my video of me documenting this moviethon ready for October 31st. Well, I missed that self-imposed deadline by a mile. Hippopotamus! So I finished the video last night and I wanted to share it with you guys. I'm not posting this anywhere else until next week. No Facebook, no Twitter, no Friendster! So you guys who are doing some Cinema Somnambulist crawling today get to see it first. Happy Thanksgiving but really, happy Halloween...
