It’s the second of our annual SHOCKTOBER shows, focusing on lousy horror films, and it’s a doozy! Mark Walhberg unleashes all his whispery energy on the modern master of “Hey jackass, betcha didn’t see that one coming!” M. Night Shyamalan, and his eco-horror-tale The Happening. Meanwhile, Elliott explains his failed cartoon-writing career, Stuart crosses the sexual line, and Dan opens a pun Pandora’s box he can’t close.
0:00 – 0:39 – Introduction and theme.
0:40 – 41:28 – It’s a Flop House event! We’ve been waiting so long for the DVD release for M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening that we jump right in and don’t stop talking about it for forty minutes. (Would I call it a “Flop House happening?” No. That would be dumb.)
41:29 – 44:17 – Final judgments on The Happening.
44:18 – 48:30 – What the heck. Final judgments on M. Night, too.
48:31 – 56:40 – The sad bastards recommend.
56:41 – 58:26 – Goodbyes, theme, and outtakes.
**In this episode, Dan refers to Alan Rudd. He meant Alan Ruck.
