A podcast dedicated to discussing our favorite late night movies!
Antichrist (2009) with guests Jeffery Owens & Krysta Curry
2:38:35The podcast gets slightly elevated as we bring on two guests, Jeffery Owens and Krysta Curry, to discuss Lars Von Trier's controversial movie "Antichrist". We cap off our "self-destruction" block of movies with this one, or we smash it in the dick with a log of wood, depending how you look at it. This movie is notable for being one open to wide and various interpretations, so we really dig into the soil of the dark forest this movie resides within to determine what exactly Von Trier is trying to tell us with it. One thing we can say for certain: Chaos does indeed reign. The featured band for this episode is Arizona's doom wizard's Goya with the track "Satan's Fire".

Vanishing Point (1971)
1:38:09For part 3 of our "self-destruction" block of movies we are hitting the great American highway of yore as we talk about 1971's cult hot rod movie "Vanishing Point". We join Kowlaski on this disastrous mission to get a white Dodge Challenger from Colorado to California, poppin' bennies, out smartin' smokies, and meetin' nudie biker cuties along the way. But Kowalski isn't just trying to outrun the law; he's trying to outrun his dark past. Our featured band for this episode is French death grinders Whoresnation with the track "Everyday Kriegspel".

Bad Lieutenant (1992)
2:03:20Keeping within our theme of movies dealing with "self-destruction", we revisit the works of one of New York City's finest auteur's, Mr. Abel Ferrara. This time we are discussing 1992's "Bad Lieutenant" a film we collectively regard as a true classic in American cinema. Harvey Keitel stars as the titular bad lieutenant, or L.T., giving a lifetime performance. We have a duo of featured bands on this episode: Indianapolis' World Eater with the track "Burning Season" and Seattle's Streetwalker with "In Fading Light".

Man Bites Dog (1992)
1:37:49On this episode of Midnight Flix, we are introducing a new thematic series of movies, starting with 1992's morbidly comedic mockumentary, "Man Bites Dog" directed by Remy Belvaux. The theme: self-implosion, or the consequences of hubris, if you will. We tag along with Ben and the gang and witness their wanton murder and mayhem as objective observers...or are we? Our featured band for this episode is Seattle's own d-beat maniacs, Nightfeeder with the track "Cut All Of Your Face Off".

The Last Man On Earth (1964)
1:25:13On this episode, we return to author Richard Matheson's work for the source material of our cinematic discussion. This time it's 1964's proto-modern zombie flick "The Last Man On Earth", starring classic American horror's most erudite and esteemed god-father, Vincent Price as protagonist Dr. Robert Morgan. Hop in the hearse and take a spin down to the everlasting burning pile of the vampiric-zombie-undead hordes, won't you? And don't forget to pick up some garlic at the local grocery along the way. Our featured band is Oakland's veteran masters of sludge, Brainoil with the track "Dark Eyes Of My Past". Email us at [email protected] and follow us on the socials @midnightflixpodcast.

That’s right, we talk about that maniacal duo Duane and Belial making a return in Frank Henenlotter’s follow up to the gritty, lo-fi, unhinged splatter masterpiece Basket Case. Basket Case 2 introduces a whole menagerie of new oddballs, mutants and weirdos to accompany our reprised anti-heroes. It’s a real Nightbreed for nitwits here, folks. And we brought our friend Nathan Herbert from the Demolisten Podcast back on to have a laugh about it.
