Anyone that knows me or has heard The Bloody Pit podcast #5 is aware that SCROOGE (1970) is my favorite version of A Christmas Carol. I Like Life isn't my favorite song from this wonderful musical but it is a damned good one!

It is that time once again! After two months of talking about Jess Franco and Amando de Ossorio your humble podcasters return to the films of Paul Naschy with a vengeance. THE LAST KAMIKAZE was the last of the Japanese co-productions our Spanish cinema hero directed and, although we were upset that that it isn't a horror film, we are happy to take whatever Senor Molina offers. The 1980's was a period in which he stretched his creative muscles in new directions and he seems to have succeeded more times that not. Let's just say that because of this movie I am willing to forgive the scandal that was OPERATION MANTIS. This film may have some problems but it does not make the viewer cringe in embarrassment- well- maybe only in one scene involving dressing in drag.
I must apologize for the nearly three hour running time of this episode. Part of the reason for this excessive length can be put down to both Troy and I being so thrilled to talk about Naschy again that we went a bit too in depth. But, in truth, we also ramble off topic on several occasions with discussions of Wonder Woman and Earth 2 comic books being completely my fault. Sorry about that! But the real off topic rambling comes in the mailbag section when a couple of longtime listeners raise very interesting ideas and ask our opinions on a wide range of things. We talk about the early films of Lucio Fulci; give our opinions on the Friday the 13th series of movies; talk over Christmas wish lists; get excited about the impending Blu-Ray release of DEMONS and DEMONS 2 and we even spew forth a rant or two. That's right- both
Troy and I have a bone to pick with certain
people and it comes out in the mailbag discussions. I may have cursed a bit too
much in this one. Whew!

Yes! One of my all time favorite television shows marks its 25th Anniversary with the return of its much missed Thanksgiving tradition of a marathon of episodes. This is a welcome thing to make the family festivities slightly less awkward for those unfortunate gatherings that turn into uncomfortable attempts to shut Uncle Loony up about the Illuminati and Chemtrails. Of course, this marathon is only online at this address so fire up that streaming device and get ready for 12 hours of pure uncut funny! If you need a taste to get you through this short but busy week here is the entire Space Mutiny episode complete with Reb Brown screaming. Enjoy!

I have never read any of the Gold Key Buck Rogers comics but these covers are wonderful. This reminds me that I need to finish my rewatch of the old TV series to see if my memories are better than the show's reality.
