The Hell With This Podcast #25 - Back To School

Post by Chad Peter » Tue May 30, 2017 12:33 pm

Oh hello, everyone. Chad here. This week's podcast features people not including myself - I know, I know - but the show must go on (including next week, which I'm also absent for). All this aside, co-host Mark brings us two things this week: "Back To School", the 1986 Rodney Dangerfield classic; and a guest appearance by fellow podcaster & writer, Josh Trotter.

I saw John carpenters The Thing when I was in 3rd or 4th grade. We had three dogs and, at the time, I would come home from school to an empty house so of course the dogs would gather around to greet me as I came through the door. For about two weeks after seeing that movie when I came home from school I would sprint from the front door to my room and slam the door shut, dogs chasing and jumping as excited dogs will do, and I'd sit there and wait for someone else to come home before I'd come out.

It became my favorite horror until I saw Poltergeist (you guys want to borrow my copy?), Then American Werewolf in London, Hellraiser, and so on. I still credit The Thing for getting me into horror.

As for Back to School, saw the movie ad nauseam. So much so that It was hard to enjoy Rodney Dangerfield in other movies until Natural Borne Killers. It all just started to become the same joke over and over like Andrew Dice Clay's schtick. I remember enjoying it the first few times but I doubt I'll ever watch it again.
