In their Season 2 premiere, cohosts Dino and Mike delve back into Friedkin territory with I Eat Movies #14: Billy Flops - Deal of the Century (1983) / Jade (1995). Exploring two of his undermentioned and critically maligned pictures, the fellas explore how a political satire led by the comedic force of Chevy Chase and accompanied by the likes of Sigourney Weaver and Gregory Hines misfired like a B-29 bomber. In addition, although beloved by the filmmaker himself, Friedkin's attempts to get frisky with erotic thrills and twists that do little to tantalize and resulted in a pair of Golden Raspberry nominations for its troubles is also discussed. Whether you asked for it or not, I Eat Movies is back!

For our second installment of Queer & Rotten, we're heading back to 1980 to dissect one of the most controversial movies of the last 40 years: William Friedkin's queer-panic serial killer thriller "Cruising," featuring one of last truly restrained Al Pacino performances. A film that was mired in controversy from the moment it was announced, Friedkin's film became the first studio-funded thriller to set its sights on the queer S&M community. Protests from the New York queer community throughout its filming and up to its theatrical release paved the way for decades of polarizing conversations and retrospectives surrounding the film, as it remains a cinematic curiosity to this day. We're joined by writer Kaycee Felton-Lui to discuss the films place in the queer canon in 2021, Pacino and Friedkin's contentious working relationship, the complicated legacy the film left behind, and its haunting reminder of the homophobia that permeated Hollywood and the rest of the world at the dawn of the AIDS epidemic. "Cruising" is currently streaming on The Criterion Channel.

 Enjoy this special bonus episode featuring an interview we conducted with JB Destiny, Boomer Payne, Lola Destiny, Blair Morgan, & actor Erik Thompson of Image 987/Cryptic Pictures out of Pittsburgh, PA to talk about their new film "The Dirty Hands Man" which premiered the night we recorded this interview. We'll go in depth behind what went into the making of the film covering the inspirations, special effects, makeup, acting performances and more. We'll also talk about George Romero's lost pilot for the Pro Wrestling show Iron City Ass-Kickers, also available from Image 987 and how Dan, JB & Boomer's wrestling careers all at least indirectly intersected at one point or another and they found they all had quite a bit in common, including mutual friends. We'll also get a great George Romero story about what inspired ICA and how George himself was a wrestling fan. This was a great time and we definitely hope to have the Image 987 crew back on.

We'll look at the powerhouse performances from Tony Todd (pre Candyman), Tom Towles (Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer, House Of 1000 Corpses), & Patricia Tallman (respected stunt performer in tons of major films and TV shows).
