B&S About Movies episode 71: Clownhouse

On one hand, Clownhouse is an interesting movie from a young filmmaker. On the other, that same filmmaker was sexually molesting his star. So right off the squeaking bat, this is a weird movie. And it gets even weirder. We watched it. Please listen either on the link below or find us on iTunes.


Episode 70 – The Paperboy

This episode, we’re watching the 1994 Canadian thriller The Paperboy. A kid who wants a family so bad, he’ll kill just about anyone and everything to get it — or maybe he’s just Canadian and a little bit off. Either way, you can listen to it here: https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/bandsaboutmovies/episodes/2017-07-19T20_38_46-07_00
