Episode #282 – Castle Freak

It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for — we discuss the fabled Castle Freak. And we don’t do it alone! We do it with noted B-movie aficionado Joe Bob Briggs who you can also see on Shudder’s “The Last Drive-In.” Meanwhile, Dan asks salient questions about Grimace’s anatomy, Elliott denies all of Dan’s best bits, and Stuart fulfills his destiny.

    I can’t even express how happy I was to see this come up on my podcast feed. The drive-in/B-movie king himself AND Castle Freak!? Shut down the Flophouse, it’s all downhill from here.

    For real though, thank you so much. (all the way from Perpignan, France!)

  3. Wildride says:

    Isn’t the real Castle Freak the friends we made along the way?

  5. C says:

    Giorgio clearly survives that interim period by ripping off his own ding-dong and eating it.

  6. Matt says:

    I’m so disappointed that Stuart’s recommendation wasn’t either Head of the Family or Invisible Maniac.

  7. Jim says:

    Speaking of literal metaphors, does the Freak wrapping himself in sheets make him “a freak in the sheets?”

    can you post the specifications for the logo contest on your website?

  11. AK says:

    Stuart are you possibly conflating this with the jackin’ scene in ‘I, Zombie: The Chronicles of Pain’ (1998)? Because that dude straight-up rips off his own ding dong in the process of said jackin’.

    Maybe the cartoon first person game Dan was thinking of is Bendy and The Ink Machine?
