Turtle Sweets

     This week... a steaming bowel of turtle soup and some old fashioned honey based junk food.

     Bernard Rose expands and reworks Clive Barker's "The Forbidden" into a new cinematic legend. When semiotics grad student Helen goes poking around Cabrini-Green, as part of her thesis on how urban legends can be used as a coping mechanism, she soon finds there is much more to her subject than she ever thought possible. A horror film about race and social class in inner-city and one of the greatest horror antagonist. Whatever you do, don't say his name five times... Candyman.
     A year has passed since the epic battles between Gamera and Gyaos left much of Japan in ruins. There had been no signs of more kaiju trouble since but you can never count space monsters out. On the night of a meteor shower, strange plants spring up all over the Sapporo and large insect creatures roam at night. What can be done to stop this invasion? Is all hope lost or will the Guardian of the Universe and friend to all children rise to save Japan again? The middle section of the Heisei trilogy, all of which are firmly rank among the best kaiju films ever made, Gamera 2: Attack of Legion.
     All that and Kevin learns the crushing feeling of disappointment, Tyler is elated beyond his wildest hopes, and Dave watches some TV. Join us, won't you?Episode 218- Turtle Sweets
