Talk Without Rhythm Podcast

Join El Goro, part-time luchador and full-time cinephile, as he delves into the broad grassy spaces and massed granite tarns of cinema. Each episode, El Goro discusses two movies tied together by some kind of theme. Action, sci-fi, horror, high-brow, low-brow: it's all fair game.

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm spending time with one of the greats. Before the Winchesters knew how to drive. Before Buffy made googly eyes at a smoldering undead. Before Spooky and Starbuck opened their first X-File. Before pretty much any supernatural-themed television, there was investigative reporter Carl Kolchak. So in honor of this legend I'll be discussing his first two appearances: 1972's The Night Stalker and 1973's The Night Strangler

And hey, since I love the character so much I'm giving away copies of the blu-ray of The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler. Listen to the episode to find out how to win.

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm taking a look at two films that represent the Horror legacy of Marvel Comics!

Okay...so only one of them is actually an officially licensed Marvel adaptation, but I've already covered the Blade films and I'll be damned if I'm going to watch Man-Thing again (shudder).

Anyway, this week I'm discussing 1980's Tomb of Dracula (aka Dracula: Sovereign of the Damned) and 1992's Doctor Mordrid.
