Paxton, Jaime and Shawn are back with the second part of Episode 2 of the Cult Film Club. For this episode we side-stepped discussion of a particular film in lieu of talking more generally about cult movies and our personal experiences with the genre. Whether it was benefiting from older sisters, taking in 99 cent Monday Movies with Dad, or browsing the various mom & pop video rental stores of our youth, we were all exposed to a plethora of films at a young age. We talk about memories of “Skin-e-max”, that video section behind the beaded curtain, Jim Henson’s A Tale of Sand, and alternate cuts of films that only aired on certain TV stations or airplanes. There’s also a lightening round installment of It’s Time For a ReCast, as well as a well deserved plug for the Ninja III: the Domination episode of the Nerd Lunch Podcast.
