Oh, hi Mark! Welcome to Phantom Galaxy Episode 34.

We return to kick off a big December full of podcasts with our first Cult Double Feature.

Remember when looking in on and obsessing over the lives of seemingly mundane schlubs was the purview of the Truman Show? Reality TV vaporized that taboo long ago, and left us with a burnt-out wasteland of entertainment that sometimes still produces gems of absurdity.

In this episode we look at two 'singular' individuals and the movies and cults they have inspired.

First off, Nathan Seth and Chris study the cosmic badness of Tommy Wiseau's The Room and then review the new film 'The Disaster Artist', a manic account of the film's making.

Then, we zoom into obscure cult territory with one of Chris' favorite movies; Windy City Heat or, How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love Perry Caravello. Not only do we explore the small but obsessive fan base that has rallied around Perry, but we've also got a shout-out from the man himself!

Jump down the cult movie rabbit hole for another crazy jaunt through The Phantom Galaxy!

Welcome to Phantom Galaxy Episode 33.

Positively tiny compared to most of our episodes, this one is a quick review of Marvel's new Thor: Ragnarok. Nathan and Chris jump into a non-spoiler discussion of what you can expect from this latest jaunt into the world of Norse mythology and comic world-building. And there's Goldblum, y'all!

Welcome to Phantom Galaxy Episode 31. Nathan,  Seth and Chris continue the Stephen King series with new guest, Jason Swam, who drops some impressive King knowledge along the way.

This is the first part of a 3 part series dedicated to King's short stories and their adaptations. Tonight, we look at the Children of the Corn saga, The Mangler, Sometimes they Come Back, Cat's Eye, The Lawnmower Man, Battleground, The Woman in the Room and, of course, Maximum Overdrive.

This discussion was too long to post as a whole episode, so we'll be back in a few days with the second half, discussing Skeleton Crew and the movies made from The Bachman Books.

Welcome to Phantom Galaxy Episode 30.

Ever had that movie that was a certified clunker by everyone you meet, that resembles the inside of the microwave after an unfortunate burrito accident, but....you like it anyway?

In this episode, Nathan, Chris and Seth discuss the ultimate 'hot mess' movies; films that aren't ' so good they're bad' or eccentric cult items, but films that were heading somewhere but got lost somewhere in translation. There is no denying their failure in a conventional sense, but for some reason, there's something approaching affection there anyway.

Join us as we look at goofy game adaptations, space vampires in the buff, tv channels from Hell, and a few off-the-wall literary misfires.

And don't forget to let us know which movies you consider a 'hot mess'!

Welcome to Phantom Galaxy Episode 29. Nathan and Seth continue the Stephen King series with som help from Chris as they examine the new blockbuster film IT and the book that inspired it.  

We discuss what we liked about the new movie, and what we think of the changes. We'll begin with a review, and then Seth and Nathan dive into the merits of the book, why some of the changes were necessary, and where others may lead as the sequel shapes up.

Don't worry about putting on your galoshes, because we all float down here!

Welcome to Phantom Galaxy Episode 28. This is the start of our long awaited 'Stephen King Goes to Hollywood' series.

Stephen King is one of those undisputed masters of pop  horror, and his work has saturated so many aspects of our culture. This series will look at all King's film and television adaptations, while comparing and contrasting them with the original works that inspired them.

For this first episode Nathan and Seth go back to the beginning, to find a struggling writer hitting it big with a terrifying tale of a young, bullied girl lashing out with untold supernatural power. More than 40 years later, that writer is still going strong and Carrie, the story that started it all, has left four film adaptations and a musical in its wake!

Join us as we explore the appeal of King, how he came up Carrie as story, and what we think works best about his first novel.

Then, we'll jump into the films; DePalma's stylish thriller, the questionable sequel, a tv remake, and a big budget 2013 adaptaiton.

Keep the lights on for this one constant reader (or listener), and get ready for a trip down the King's Highway.

Welcome to Phantom Galaxy Episode 27.

They sit there, they stare with their unblinking eyes, tiny artificial hands and painted mocking smiles, planning your doom.

Nathan, Chris and Seth open up the pop culture attic and go looking for creepy evill dolls and demonic teddy bears. Here you'll find Chucky, Annabelle, Talky Tina, and others. Join us for a march down the toy aisle of terror!

Open PS to Slappy the Dummy: Yes, we forgot to mention you. Please don't throttle us in our sleep.

Welcome to Phantom Galaxy Episode 26.

A few weeks ago, the horror world lost George Romero, arguaubly one of the genre's most influential voices. Nathan, Chris Durham and Jason Kuppler team up to walk through every one of Romero's directed films and examine what made the man and his work seem so special.

On a sad note, our own podcast community lost a friend. Ivolee Henson (whose humorous observations on 'No Escape' were shared in Episode 23) passed away suddenly last month. Ivolee was a good friend and a caring mother and grandmother. I'm posting a link to a Go-Fund Me Page to raise education funds for her three grandchildren. Please consider it.

And finally, as promised, a link to George Romero directing....Fred Rogers getting a tonsillectomy!

Welcome to Phantom Galaxy Episode 25. Seth and Nathan continue their journey through David Lynch's strange country of Twin Peaks: The Return.

It's been several episodes since the mind-bending, myth-busting epsidode 8, and fans of the original Peaks have been given much to rejoice over and even more to fluster over.

This episode we delve into where Lynch really seems to be going with the overall arc of the show, teasing out the mysteries and guessing at what comes next.

And of course, what's with that scary teddy?

Note: This is complete spoiler territory. We discuss in detail events that occur in these epsiodes as well as our theories about what's coming next.
