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 kicking off the holiday season with two European horror films with multiple titles featuring movie-obsessed children facing off against psychos in Santa Claus outfits, which has to be one of the more peculiarly specific themes I've ever booked an episode around.

Anyway, I'll be discussing 1989's Deadly Games (AKA 3615 code Père Noël, Dial Code Santa Claus, Game Over, and Hide and Freak) and 2005's A Christmas Tale (AKA Películas para no dormir: Cuento de navidad).

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast we salute the cinematic work of the late Sean Connery with two films that highlight his gravitas, presence, and resolute refusal to attempt any kind of accent other than his own: 1987's The Untouchables and 1990's The Hunt for Red October.

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I am going BIG for Halloween, with a discussion of the complete cinematic Evil Dead franchise! 

We begin with 1981's The Evil Dead, with special guest host Dynamo Marz of The Deadites, The Five Hossmen, The Force Insensitive Podcast, and Danger Meows Publishing.

Then, I head back to the cabin with Mike White of The Projection Booth and esteemed TWoRP Elite Patron Jacob P. to discuss 1987's Evil Dead II.

After that, it's through the time portal to face 1992's Army of Darkness with two of my favorite primitive screwheads (and two more members of the Five Hossmen) - Johnnie Wolfenstein of Trick or Treat Radio and The Force Insensitive Podcast and Michael Koopmans!

Finally, we reach the gore-soaked conclusion of this epic saga, as I am joined by fellow Hossman Jake of the Cult of Muscle and Brett the Wiz of Brettro Culture to discuss 2013's Evil Dead.

So gas up the chainsaw, load up the boomstick, and have good one-liner ready as I embark on the Ultimate Experience in Grueling Podcasting.

Happy Halloween!
