1985 happened 30 years ago and so did I. Now I’m watching all of the movies from the year of my birth. Yes, all of them.

Review: Last week my friends Big Willy and The Samurai at The Gentlemen’s Guide to Midnight Cinema announced that they’d be reviewing Mr. Vampire on their next episode and I thought, “holy shit, that’s on my list!” So I got in touch with the gents, asked to be on the show and something like 48 hours later we were recording.

I should say, this podcast is 2 hours and 45 minutes long and we don’t get to Mr. Vampire until about the 2 hour mark. Still if you want to hear an in-depth discussion on Zodiac as well as some brief thoughts on classics like Zipperface and Sidekicks, you should give this a listen.

I should also say that we started recording at 2am on Saturday night and didn’t wrap up until 5am Sunday morning. If I sound tired, it’s because I am.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a non-podcast entry in the series.
