Danny! and Tim have an thoughtful debate on how to best tackle homelessness in America on this month’s Double Murder! Street Trash by James Muro describes distributing a toxic, yet affordable, liquor to discerning winos that will reduce the homeless into putrid heaps of neon gore.

It’s Christmas time on Double Murder!
To get everyone in the mood for this holiday season, Danny! is joined by Lauren Taylor (of News From The Crypt fame) as they review two holiday treats: Rare Exports and Santa’s Slay! Both films tackle the age-old question of “What if Santa was actually a murderous beast?” from completely different angles.
Rare Exports, a Finnish film from 2010, examines the subject with a serious eye, blending the myth of Santa Claus with the classic “…archeologists start digging and uncover…” trope. Santa’s Slay, from 2005, takes a decidedly more tongue-in-cheek approach casting pro-wrestling star Goldberg as a wise-crackin’, neck-breakin’ Santa. Which one of these films is a welcome present under the tree, and which is a lump of coal? Tune in to Double Murder to find out!

Rammbock is a unique take on the rage virus/infected zombie genre, dealing both with coming to terms with emotional loss and survival in a city gone mad. Phase 7 shows what happens when an apartment building is quarantined and it’s occupants regress back to rule-of-the-jungle anarchy and paranoia. Both films deal with confinement and disease, and both films have memorable, fresh characters…but which one is the best? Tune in to “Double Murder!” on Bloody Disgusting Radio to find out!

They’ve covered controversial movies. They’ve had controversial opinions (especially in regards to Rob Zombie). But now, Danny! and Tim have made their most controversial episode of Double Murder ever: “Bram Stoker’s Dracula vs. Twilight!!!”
Bram Stoker’s Dracula was not Francis Ford Coppola’s first horror movie, but it was certainly his grandest. It included an all-star cast (in spite of Keanu Reeves), including a masterful performance by Gary Oldman as Count Dracula. But how does it hold up over time, and does it have enough to stand up to the newcomer: Twilight? Released in 2008, Twilight caused quite a stir by mixing the vampire genre with teen romance. However, after grossing almost $400 million worldwide, it can be described as nothing short of a phenomenon. Has Stephanie Meyer’s modern take on the vampire genre come to de-throne Bram Stoker’s classic tale!?

Tim has returned from another successful tour of the United States to join Danny! on the latest episode of Double Murder: Devil vs Prince of Darkness! As the first film in M Night Shyamalan’s “The Night Chronicles”, Devil shows you what happens when five strangers are trapped in an elevator with “The Devil”; stop being polite, and start getting real…dead. Can the detective and security guards watching on camera solve this supernatural mystery in time? Will Devil be as good as Unbreakable, or as bad as The Happening!? One of John Carpenter’s most overlooked films, Prince of Darkness combines theology with modern science to bring you a new twist on the God vs Satan concept. A group of graduate students and professors are tapped to unlock the mysteries that have been locked in a church basement for hundreds of years. As they get closer to discovering the truth, the evil escapes and immediately recruits to it’s army…that’s right…Alice Cooper. Tune in now (iTunes, inside, or on the Podcast page) to find out which one of these films is a hidden gem, and which one is to be avoided like the plague! And heed Danny!’s advice: Don’t be an asshole on Halloween!!!
