We take a look at the horror/giallo film PHENOMENA from Dario Argento, talking about the insane plotting like a girl who can control insects, a random chimp, a disfigured mystery killer, and more! We also get into the power metal soundtrack, Goblin's synth boss battle songs, and Donald Pleasance's resume as entomologist/zookeeper/doctor/author/etc. We're also drinking Sam Adams Oatmeal Stout and Breckinridge Vanilla Porter.

We're celebrating New Year's with the only New Year's movie that we really know: NEW YEAR'S EVIL! We're talking about the film's punk rock/hair metal/new wave soundtrack, the early release of this slasher, the reveal of the killer's identity early, enjoying Roz Kelly's getup, and other crazy things about this ridiculous 1980 slasher.

In our final Festivus Series episode, we take a look at Die Hard 2, a very similar sequel to the Bruce Willis-led original. We talk about the differences from the first film, the bloated runtime, John McClane actually making things worse, Reginald VelJohnson's top billing, and the star-studded cast including William Sadler and Dennis Franz! We've also got the Sierra Nevada winter pack on the show.

Our Festivus Series continues, and so does our yearly coverage of the Silent Night, Deadly Night series. We're onto part 3, subtitled Better Watch Out!, and we're talking about the lack of Christmas in this film, the poor continuity from the previous movie, the horrible direction and slow pacing, and a whole lot more flaws in this barely-holiday film. Also, we've got Brown's Brewery's Rauchbier on the show!

We start Festivus 2017 with THE SANTA CLAUSE, the original 1994 comedy starring Tim Allen as a corpulent guy turning into jolly old Saint Nick. We talk about Neal's sweaters, Tim Allen's sarcasm, the underlying sinister intent in the film, Santa Claus kidnapping minors, and other comedy gold from this nostalgic Christmas movie. We're also drinking Brooklyn Winter Lager.

We continue our coverage of all of the new superhero films with Justice League - even though we were disappointed with Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad and only fairly intrigued with Wonder Woman. Justice League is definitely a step up from the former two films but it doesn't match the solid storyline of the latter - we talk about the problematic characterization of the Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg, the issues with the infusion of tone-deaf humor, JK Simmons' toupee, Aquaman's uselessness, and more! We also drink New Belgium's Cellar Blender Sour Ale!

Our Thanksgiving episode hits a little early with our coverage of Thankskilling, the 2009 low-budget horror film. We try to figure out if it's intentionally or unintentionally bad; either way, we enjoy the ridiculousness of the plot, the bad dialogue, the tons of puns, the big boobies at the beginning of the film, and more! We also talk about Keystone Light because that's what they're drinking in the film.

We're back with a new superhero episode! We're talking about the new MCU film THOR: RAGNAROK. We discuss the weird plotting issues that plague the film, Jeff Goldblum's presence, the colorful synth-y new world that Taika Waititi has built, and the more comedic aspect of this release. We also discuss Budweiser's new 1933 Prohibition Repeal Amber Lager!

We hope you enjoy our Halloween Special on JIGSAW as we do a deep dive into the franchise itself and compare this new installment. We talk about the traps, the twists, the incorporation of Tobin Bell, and more! Just a warning: there are all kinds of spoilers in this, so make sure you watch the film first. Happy Halloween from Blood and Black Rum Podcast!

Our last Remakeoween episode is Rob Zombie's Halloween from 2007. We saw this in theaters back when it released but haven't seen it since; we talk about the Zombification of John Carpenter's original, the trailer trash Michael Myers in this film, the presence of Malcolm McDowell for some strange reason, the film's inability to come up with a solid backstory for Michael despite spending an hour on his past, and more! We also talk about Genesee's Dark Chocolate Scotch Ale.
