We try to understand Godzilla vs Hedorah’s environmental message, as well as why it was delivered in such a strange form.

Hello and welcome to the much anticipated “Insidious Chapter 2” episode of Dead Times. Well this episode was a struggle, our first attempt didn’t record anything, and our second attempt was plagued with audio problems.

Scream (1996)

In today’s episode Peter and Tim watch the ultimate slasher movie, “Scream.” It’s one of Peter’s favorite movies, and they talk about how it is a meta-textual comment on slasher movies, and also just an excellent example of the genre. We dig into the characters and puzzle out their complex motivations. And wonder what could possibly be going on with that high school principal.
