I hope your Halloween candy-and-liquor-never-sicker hangover is just a terrible memory by now, and that you didn’t do anything stupid last night like go out dressed like this dude. Anyway, before we get to this weeks VMFNR, let me bring you up to speed with a few other very metal things.
The Movies About Girls podcast will be Skyping our 178th episode LIVE tomorrow at 3 PM PT. This week the gang gets treated to yet another striptastic Maria Ford flick, 1996’s Showgirl Murders. As usual we’ll also run down our picks for the Top Five and Bottom Five DVD and Blu-Ray releases, tell you what part of Florida to avoid (spoiler alert: ALL OF THEM), as well as play another round of everybody’s favorite parlor game, That’s Not A Real Band Name, Is It?, curated as always by yours truly. All that plus high doses of childish antics and folly that you’ve come to expect from the greatest group of teenage losers to ever hit the airwaves, the Movies About Girls crew.
I’ve also got a new Coffin Couture column up over at Destroy the Brain that I hope will help the quest to end Slutoween forever! I know, fat chance right? But I still gave it my best shot. Click here to read it, and leave a comment for me if you’re so inclined. I’d love to hear from you.
Now, let’s get to all the metal stuff that happened this week!
