Jeffrey and Richard talk about LamBava's quasi-remake of Mario Bava's Black Sunday, Demons 5: The Devil's Veil AKA La maschera del demonio (1989). Was Richard too sick to record? Yes. Did he let that stop him? Unfortunately no. As usual, things get strange and out of control but that's what LamBava is all about. Enjoy!
The priest did it! The priest did it! Which would be a spoiler if this movie had a priest in it. Anyway, Simon and Richard talk about The Crimes of the Black Cat (1972), a fun giallo which everyone should see if they're willing to track it down. Even more exciting, Simon officially joins the Doomed Show team. Welcome him or suffer the cat claws of doom! (Oh and Richard plugs his book at least twice.)
Giallo Meltdown (Richard's book):
In what could be the most rockin' episode of H!TITDS, Jeffrey and Richard talk about one of the most unfairly (or maybe fairly) obscure Italian horror films. From the mind of Luigi Cozzi in 1989, it's Paganini Horror! This one's got Donald Pleasence and his little demons and Daria Nicolodi and her not so little shoulder pads. Both are lovely!
Christian of Textual Relations and Good Movies For Bad People returns to the show talk about 1990: The Bronx Warriors (1982) with Richard. It's as relevant to 1990 as it is now! Is your grey matter in your butt? This is the episode where you'll find out.
Simon returns to the show to talk about Twin Peaks again. Just kidding, they're not doing that EVER AGAIN (until the new series has aired). For reals though, they're talking about one of the most convoluted gialli of all time, Autopsy (1975). Wow! It's great. But you should listen anyway as Richard and Simon try and figure out whose boobs they're talking about.
Richard's book, Giallo Meltdown:
And here it is, gang. The final episode with co-host Nafa. Richard introduces the show and says a few words about the passing of his friend. Then he and Nafa talk about a bizarre Kiwisploitation film from 1984 called Death Warmed Up AKA Death Warmed Over. This episode is brought to you by Bruno Lawrence and Cool Whip!
So the end of an era is just on the horizon. This is the second to last of the H!TITDS episodes with co-host Nafa, due to his unexpected passing. In this episode, he and Richard talk about two found footage films, As Above, So Below (2014) and Final Prayer AKA The Borderlands (2013). This episode is brought to you by Taco Bell, Cici's Pizza, Uncle Ray's potato chips, and probably Subway. Climb into the catacombs, good friends!
