This week on the Acid Pop Cult Podcast, Jason and Jeremy are in horror movie mode. Jeremy recounts his highly anticipated viewing of ‘Insidious 3’ and how it almost went horribly wrong. He offers up a full review of the flick and what excites him Leigh Whannell’s upcoming projects. Jason gives us a look at the plethora of eclectic upcoming interviews at Icon Vs. Icon (www.iconvsicon.com) before the duo then turn their sights to another horror flick recently made a big impact in the collective radar of horror fans! Ted Geoghegan’s ‘We Are Still Here’ is the director’s love letter to the classic haunted house films that impacted him in his youth, yet incorporate all of the style and excitement of modern horror cinema. Check out out Jason’s interview with this new force in horror at the end of the show! Other topics range from kids sayin’ the darndest things, the trailer for the ‘Point Break’ remake and ‘Giuseppe Makes A Movie.’ It’s an action packed show and the guys are primed and ready to make the magic happen!
So Robin Williams is dead, and that is sad. What’s sadder is the flood of suicide prevention posts on social media that followed. Why is it the only time we care about important issues like these is when it happens to a celebrity? Jeremy brings the issue to the table this week in one of his most inspired rants yet. Lee covers the new Jim Norton show on Vice, featuring his Ed McMahon, trans-gender porn star Bailey Jay. Then Jason gives us all an update on the Bad Karma Body Count Celebrity Death Pool, and makes plans to hit in Monster Mania Convention in New Jersey.
This week the gang discuss their latest trades in the Bad Karma Body Count Celebrity Death Pool, Lee almost gets a haircut, and Jeremy talks about the recent addition to the DC Cinematic Universe. Jason breaks down some sweet new interviews over at Icon Vs Icon, Jeremy hates Tammy, and Lee gets World Cup Fever. It’s almost as sexy as Pac-Man Fever. Almost. The boys also plan a trip to Walmart to pick up some sweet Topps Trading Cards in celebration of Major League turning 25 years young.
This week the boys talk about Aquaman’s beard, “What’s in the Box,” why music sounds different each decade, and joining up with Icon Vs. Icon for a Celebrity Death Pool.
This week Lee and Jeremy bust out a new segment called By Definition where our humble hosts pick three films from a certain sub-genre that by definition make up said sub-genre. They kick off this new spot with Misfit Comedies. But first, Lee gets heated over a certain Geico add and romanticizes the idea of a ginger free world. Jeremy informs us that The Flashpoint Paradox is a must see film. He then gives his initial thoughts on Batman, Incorporated #13. Also, the boys (somewhat) celebrate the life (and death) of Marilyn Monroe. It is 5:25pst August 5th… Check out Lee’s article over at Mysterious Universe.
Acid Pop Cult, now 68.267% more interactive! The gang answer emails and tweets from the world of four listeners. Chris and Jeremy talk about their fun at C2E2, including Jeremy’s dreadful time during the Maniac remake, Chris hating on nerds, more Aquaman hate, some hard Kevin Smith dick sucking, and a beer line. Lee educates the boys on some literature and “The Confederacy of Dunces.” Jeremy says “in concession” instead of “in succession” twice in one episode, which drove him nuts during the edit. Words were not his friend on episode 59. If you’re not a fan of Kevin Smith, Jeremy is sorry in advance. If you are a fan of Kevin Smith, you’re welcome in advance. For some stupid reason I can’t upload our episode card… it’s really funny and I’m now suicidal because of this tragic blunder.
*Editor’s note: We don’t really think Lee is a racist. We’re sorry in advance.
