Terror Eyes



As the old saying goes, you can't judge a book by it's cover. But can the same be said about VHS box art? I don't think so. You see something like 1989's Terror Eyes and you definitely judge it. And if you're anything like our Shea, you buy it, no questions asked. Because it looks fucking awesome. Or terrible. The thing is, around the Companeros Compound....there's not much of a difference.

And in case this shot on film, shot on video, shot on film anthology isn't enough for you, don't worry. We brought our usual bag of tricks and party favors to pepper our little party; James Best's List of the Best Movies, PG Boobs, Catch and Release, Songs on trial..and even better..Jake couldn't make it... so no Anime!

But that's not all because the gang's newest member, Alistair(aka Dr. Snuggles)treats us to a brand new segment: Companeros Fun Film Fact! Today, we'll learn all about why Milton Berle was such a big deal around Hollywood. Enjoy the show here.

Parole Violators



For our tenth stellar episode, resident VHS Hoarder, Justin selected one of his personal favorites; 1994's straight to video stunt-filled no-budget Z-grade gold, Parole Violators, and it didn't take long for it to become a house favorite at the Companeros Compound. I don't think the gang has sat through anything this weird since we covered Nightmare Weekend in our debut episode.

An ex-cop and part time cable access T.V. host -who moonlights as the cities own Video Cop-deploys his own brand of justice as he tracks down and busts a never ending hoard of parole violators, catching them in the act...and on video! And that's just the first 30 minutes of this non-stop DIY action extravaganza.

And as usual, we plow through some of the worst(or best?)music ever made(with Shea stepping in as judge), check out the latest and greatest DVD and Blu-Ray releases, listen to a heartfelt plea from James Best's mom, take a close look at Daryl Hannah's boobs, and of course, yet another attempt by Jake to convince Matt to like anime.

It's non-stop laughs and hijinks as the gang knocks another episode out of the court. Have a listen here.

Over the Summer



This week Matt dug deep into his VHS collection and pulled out a real gem! But then he put it back and grabbed Over the Summer instead. Actually I'd call it a forgotten classic, but I can't because no one even remembers it. Bada-bing!

Seriously though, as far as obscure film goes, this one definitely fell through the cracks. In fact no one associated with it did anything film related after this awkward coming of age film, making 1984's Over the Summer a rare bird indeed. And honestly, it's worth seeing.

But of course, it wouldn't be a show without our wonderful cast, and to make up for the fact that a few of our standards had something better to do(making toast, staring at the wall, etc..), we imported Alistair AKA Dr. Snuggles all the way from Australia to join us!

And as usual we check out the best and worse DVD and Blu-Ray releases of the week, James Best delivers his Best movies list, Jake rambles on and on about some anime movie, and  a very special edition of PG Boobs introducing our first venture into the world of PG-13 boobs. Have a listen here.
