    Guys, I don’t want to tell you your business, but if you want to stay on the indie horror beat, there’s a little chiller called ATM, about three dummies trapped in an ATM kiosk, that you might want to check out.

  3. Matt Wolf says:

    Holy crap! Did Scott Tobias really comment on a Flophouse ep? This is like some weird singularity of all my pop culture favorites!

    Already miss you at the AV Club.

    Also, this movie sounds too ridiculous to actually be real. Although “reverse Candyman” is now in my everyday lexicon.

  4. Thumbs up for “I have no mouth and I must scream” reference! XD

  5. Bwanasonic says:

    I don’t think I would wish any of the Ebert list on anyone. Unless they remade them with Nicolas Ca-Ay-ge.

  6. Bridgett says:

    I’m going to use “reverse Candyman” all the time now.

    More importantly, I’ve seen the 1968 Black Lizard and it is totally great. Yukio Mishima also has a cameo appearance as one of the human dolls. Fantastic. I can’t believe it’s out of print.

  7. GZoref says:

    Great ep.I’ve never heard of this movie. It sounds like you guys are making it up as you go along. But wait. All these college kids pranked a girl (was she their friend) into killing herself? The fuck?

    Also, not to be a pedant, but “Red Herring” in Spanish is actually “cortina de humo,” or literally “smokescreen.” Herring is “arenque,” in Spanish, but “Red Herring” isn’t literally arenque rojo.”

    And now you know. If you have anymore questions about Spanish, contact me.
