    Great podcast. Amazing facts. The conjunctivitis fact was mind blowing

    I gotta say I love the fact you are finishing the Xtro trilogy but I gotta say in public it was not my idea. I would never recomend 2 or 3 😉 but you get my respect for finishing the lot though. Part 3 next Watch the skies, im gonna go with No comment but I will look forward to your review

    Im glad Rob liked part 1 too.

    I also like Cat’s eye. Quitters inc has a good performance by James Woods that I enjoy. Middle story I agree is kinda week

      Xtro 2 had nothing to do with the original and 3 is as bad I assume.

      • Dennis Atherton

        Your right, its all downhill after part 1, just watch part 1 which is amazing and you can quit happily

  • CurseofZodLovesMaude

    Holy crap! The Beast Within is the template for all horror movies should be shot. It’s grubby, scuzzy vibe is constantly unsettling… I hate most horror films today because they look to shiny and pristine… over lit, like an ugly music video.

    One of my favourite guest, amazing stories and really knowledgeable, loved this episode even more this time

    And the conjunctivitis fact is possibly the best thing ever
