It’s time for the Dead Air Christmas special featuring Jeff Konopka, Jesse Bartel of GameTyrant and yours truly, Dr. Jimmy TERROR of Dr. Terror’s Blog of Horrors. Today we’ll be discussing the remake/reimagining of Silent Night Deadly Night simply entitled Silent Night. I’m not gonna lie to you. We get into a fairly heated debate about the merits of this picture, but I believe we all come to an agreement that this movie needs a sequel. Also, no matter what I said about Malcolm McDowell, I can assure you that I love the mother! Find out what I said and why and listen in. There’s plenty of holiday hi-jinx, chicanery and out and out mischief. Jesse Bartel premieres his new hip hop album… no really. Pay attention for the discussion of It’s a Wonderful Life and Silent Night Deadly Night, the first one and the entire franchise.
In addition to the in depth review of Silent Night, we discuss what we’ve been watching. Jesse’s been digging on a lot of non-Christmas movie and even further, quite a few NON-HORROR movies. Let me just say that I haven’t seen any new non-horror movies so to even begin to wrap my head around some of what Jesse’s been watching would be like stepping out of a time capsule and the year being 3000. Jeff has been doing quite a bit prepping for the John Carpenter Retrospective series podcasts as have I. That series is about to end and expect to see the remaining episodes popping up in your feed shortly.
So sit back by the fire. Let your chestnuts hang out (roasted or unroasted). Fill a stocking or two (if you interpret that as “jerk sock” we have a room ready for you at The Ward). Make sure to leave cookies out for Santa, drink plenty of Christmas brew and party like it’s the end of the world (yes, we realize the friggin’ Mayans just gave us all a big “PSYCHE”).
Remember, there are definitely spoilers. No plot will be spared. Either watch the movie before you listen to the podcast or listen to the podcast and avoid the suffering that might happen if you should actually watch the movie. I’ll say that there are fewer spoilers in this edition, but that’s simply based on the subject matter. This episode is jam packed with nearly 3 hours of material!

We’re gonna be switching web hosts pretty soon… fairly soon… well,we’ll do it when we damn well feel like it, but we’ll be sure to let you know. Our dear friends at Blog Talk Radio don’t have the quality that our listeners deserve (even if the podcast deserves a ham radio signal). That means you’ll have to make the transition with us and subscribe over at the new site (to be named… ooooo… spooooooky). Until then, keeping tuning in to the JC retro series and Dead Air over and Blog Talk and iTunes and await further instruction.
I urge you to pay attention to the intro and outro for this podcasts. It’s some of Jeff’s finest creative work and deserving of an award… or at least a couple extra minutes in the bathroom. Also you can check out my full review HERE.
