The fiends are coming to get you Barbara, because this week on Misfits Mondays, Michael and Eric revisit George A Romero's zombie classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. The fiends dig into the greatness and legacy of Romero's work, the classic Misfits track of the same name, VEROTIK, recent Misfits gossip, The MANDALORIAN, THE GIRL ON THE THIRD FLOOR, Darren Aronofsky, Johnny and Gilbert Ramone, the brilliance of Tom Savini, and much more!
Whip out those peacemakers, because this week on the show we've got Tim Kasher of indie/post hardcore legends Cursive and The Good Life to dive into the underrated Stephen King adaptation SILVER BULLET. They dig deep into the film, as well as being an early adopter of VHS, falling deeper in love with horror later in life, the tragic brilliance of Gary Busey and Corey Haim, the PHANTATSM-SILVER BULLET connection, the film's gloriously obscured werewolf costume, Stephen King's signature dialogue, just how deep Tim's connection with the film gets, CHRISTMAS EVIL, the most promising rising filmmakers, and much more!

In a very special episode, Michael sits down with his Misfits Mondays co-host Eric Kelly to look back at the 2010s in horror cinema. From their favorite films like THE WITCH and MANDY, to the stellar 2012 EVIL DEAD remake, to some of the not so great horror films, Michael and Eric discuss it all! The 2010s were a really special period for horror, so there was no shortage of cinema for the fiends to tear into!
Rev up those chainsaws, because this week on Toxic Schlock, Michael chats with Jessie Clavin of Bleached about one of the greatest horror movies of all time, Tobe Hooper's THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. Michael and Jesse discuss the film's fairytale origins, cleverly implying gore, the unique experience of growing up in Los Angeles, the trauma of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, the soul purifying experience of falling in love with horror, and much more!
Toxic Schlock goes back to high school this week with a chat with Sam Woodring (formerly of modern emo/indie greats Two Inch Astronaut and now of Mister Goblin) about the modern darkly comedic film Jennifer's Body. Sam and Michael dive into this deeply under-appreciated film, it's miscalculated promotion campaign, it's relevance in the modern landscape, the pitch perfect depiction of late 2000s adolescence, and much more!
