Episode 61: Dungeons and Dragons (with guest host Sabrina!)

This week our party of bold adventurers delve into the incomprehensible, sordid labyrinth that is the novelization of Dungeons and Dragons: The Movie. And joining me on this ridiculous quest is the fearless Sabrina, as we roll our own heroic characters in order to battle strange prose and Marlon Wayans! What we lack in constitution we make up for in charisma. Or maybe that’s the other way around?

Episode 60 : Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (with guest host Xavier Rubetzki Noonan!)

This week we face down the fearsome fingers of Freddy Krueger as we read the audaciously meta novelization Wes Craven’s New Nightmare!

 As Wes and the original cast return to make a new Nightmare on Elm Street movie they are haunted by Freddy as he seeps into the real world, and as author David Bergantino writes his movie adaptation HE TOO is haunted by Freddy who is seeping into the real world. And as Xavier from Something Something Joystick and I record this episode are we too plagued by inexplicable nightmares? This is one of the most unique novelizations we’ve ever read!

Episode 59 : Mortal Kombat! (with guest host Simon Haynes!)

This week we compete in the deadliest tournament of all as we read the book based on the film based on the video game... Mortal Kombat! I’m joined by staunch opponent Simon as we hurl supernatural projectiles, barbs, and bicycle kicks at each other in the gruesome fight for Mortal Kombat supremacy! Join us for what is surely the literary equivalent of Johnny Cage punch to the nuts! This book was so bad I could barely FINISH HIM!

Episode 58 Doctor Who: The Movie (with guest host Courtney Coulson!)

This week we meddle with the time-stream, travelling back to 1996, where we read the novelisation of the widely disappointing, Americanised, Doctor Who: The Movie! And joining me on my time and space defying adventure is my trusted female companion and Who aficionado, Courtney Coulson! No daleks! No cybermen! No budget! The odds are against him, but let’s see what McGannigans the new Doctor gets up to!
