Episodes of Channel 37s Midnight Movie Show
030: Donovan enters the octagon that is the Channel 37 Home Office to class up the place with two-fisted kickpunchery! We don't want to oversell things, but we may have seen the greatest thing in the history of things with 1974's Black Belt Jones. Then, we were worried that film was too buttoned-down and sensible, so we loosened up with 1976's Master of the Flying Guillotine.
.: 1:21:31 :: 19 July 2024 :.

029: For the first time in nearly a century, we wake up in the morning to a world without Roger Corman in it. In addition to reshaping the face of American cinema for generations, he also directed a few movies. We spend as much time as we can discussing 1963's X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes and 1959's A Bucket of Blood before we can hold back no longer and gush about how awesome Dick Miller is. Kirby, WHXN's Executive Vice President of Wanting You to Throw the Ball, Please, chimes in with his own thoughts.
.: 1:09:18 :: 28 June 2024 :.

028: The New and Improved British Invasion is well and truly underway, as Ian stops by the Channel 37 Home Office to remind everyone of the clear and present danger we are all in from that guy in the car next to us. Especially those two in the camper, as evinced by 2012's Sightseers. After that, we're reminded of a uniquely American sort of vehicular homicide, brought to us by some rookie director whose name we've already forgotten. Anyway, here's 1972's Duel.
.: 1:30:45 :: 21 June 2024 :.

027: Speculative fiction has long been a means of answering some of life's greatest questions. What happens when we die? What are we going to do with all these dead guys' brains lying around? Can Denise Richards have implied sex with a robot dinosaur in a way that doesn't trample her character's sense of agency? All this and more, as we study 1931's Frankenstein and 1994's Tam(nn)my and the (Teenage) T-Rex!
.: 1:17:39 :: 14 June 2024 :.

After Midnight 05: What do you get when you cross three directors, two scripts, a hand puppet, a pirate were-cat, a Founding Father's estate, an exploding Grim Reaper, flatulence golems, and Duke the Horny Ghost? We're not 100% certain either, but we got a little closer when we watched 1986's Spookies.
.: 55:29 :: 10 May 2024 :.

Season Three Trailer: Season three of Channel 37's Midnight Movie Show is almost upon you! Come smell the excitement!
.: 00:45 :: 04 May 2024 :.

026.5: We're taking a quick break from our quick break to wish everyone a merry merry and also to scratch that completionist itch. With that, we wrap up the most important trilogy of the 21st century with 2017's A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby! (We're super hyped for the prequels.) With that dragon finally slain, we see out 2023 with a Christmas zombie romantic comedy musical and I'm already exhausted just trying to take all of that on board and anyway it's 2017's Anna and the Apocalypse!
.: 1:18:11 :: 21 December 2023 :.

026: We're at the end of Season Two, and there are still a bunch of musicals on the shelf. What better way to clear some of them out than picking a bunch at random? In so doing, we took a deep dive into the summer of 1984 with Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo (don't worry, we'll catch you up with the first one so you don't get lost) and Streets of Fire, starring Willem Dafoe in rubber overalls and a Wolverine haircut! Finally, we close things up with 2001's cinematic adaptation of Hedwig and the Angry Inch! Listen in and help us save the orphanage!
.: 2:24:36 :: 25 November 2023 :.

After Midnight 04: Self-care is important. When life seems like a lot, it's important to slow down, appreciate the beauty of nature, and take refuge in the arts. So slow down, take some you time, and wrap yourself in a warm, soothing embrace of exploding inflatable dolls, razor frisbees, and radioactive poison toilet-snakes. Also boobs. It's 1987's Hard Ticket to Hawaii!
.: 44:07 :: 10 November 2023 :.

After Midnight 03: There's one episode to go before we wrap up Season Two, and we're gonna spend it making fun of a movie the internet as a whole forgot about two years ago. Join a panel of musical theatre experts, and also Dan is there, as we puzzle our way through 2019's Cats. Free the Butthole Cut!
.: 1:19:00 :: 29 October 2023 :.

025.5: It's the most wonderful time of the year, and we're jumping into the festivities with a pair of highly influential movies that start from a similar place but go in wildly different directions: 2013's The WNUF Halloween Special and 1992's Ghostwatch! Don't worry, you can get back to that special where Garfield gets threatened by an old man when you're done. You ever see that? That cartoon is fucked up!
.: 1:34:00 :: 13 October 2023 :.

025: Sometimes two movies with very different vibes turn out to have a lot in common. Like a plot. And general goofiness. Kicking things off is a certified classic of science fiction, This Island Earth from 1955! Then, we're gonna gaze wistfully at an uncertain future in the stars while we ponder how much Star Wars we still had in us by 1984. Turns out a lot. It's The Last Starfighter!
.: 1:22:34 :: 29 September 2023 :.

024: Animation can free the imagination and give full, colorful voice to worlds full of wonder and inspiration. We discuss this with Rankin-Bass' 1977 (under 90-minute) adaptation of The Hobbit! After that, we can remember what it's like to wonder what it'll be like to have sex someday, along with 1981's Heavy Metal!
.: 1:00:55 :: 15 September 2023 :.

023: The journey from fresh-faced, innocent newcomer to crumpled-up has-been is a fixture of song and story from time immemorial. The library's copy of the Edda was checked out, though, so instead we focused on two ends of the music industry: 2001's Josie and The Pussycats, and 1984's This is Spinal Tap. One was way better than anyone remembered. The other was exactly as good as everyone remembers.
.: 2:03:08 :: 01 September 2023 :.

022: There's nothing we enjoy more than taking a deep dive into the WWE's long and storied history of self-mythologization. Remember when Hulk Hogan tried to act? Find it as adorable as we did as we tackle 1989's No Holds Barred! After that, we're gonna see if this Florence Pugh person might be someone to keep an eye on with 2019's Fighting with My Family!
.: 1:41:34 :: 18 August 2023 :.

021: We recently lost character actor Treat Williams, pulp villain and WB-dad par excellence. To pay tribute, we look at two of his many contributions to midnight movie culture: the zombie buddy cop horror comedy Dead Heat from 1988 and 1998's Indiana Jones and the Luxury Ocean Liner Full of Tentacle Monsters Deep Rising!
.: 1:35:27 :: 04 August 2023 :.

020: What theatrical form gives you the opportunity to express your emotions, delve into philosophy, and achieve classic status more effectively than the rock opera? Asking for a friend. While you ponder that, give a listen as we go over a couple of tentpoles of the genre with 2008's Repo! The Genetic Opera alongside Ken Russell's 1975 adaptation of The Who's Tommy!
.: 1:56:23 :: 21 July 2023 :.

019.5: Don't let all that sunshine and not being in school get you down! We're here to ask Santa for a podcast sponsorship and a baby brother, but in lieu of that, we're going to say hello to some old favorites while we criticize their outfits, the way the holidays should be! Come a-wassailing with us while we discuss 2018's A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding - The Legend of Curly's Gold!
.: 58:51 :: 14 July 2023 :.

019: The comic book movie boom of the 1990s was responsible for some classics, probably, but here we're looking at the best in cardboard spaceships and Lori Petty turned up to 11. Settle in for 1994's unreleased Roger Corman masterwork The Fantastic Four! We're following that up with basically a Mad Max remake except it's a Jim Carrey movie. It's 1995's Tank Girl! Let loose the Bjork Army! ('90s!)
.: 1:34:13 :: 07 July 2023 :.

018: On your way to a remote village with unknowable secrets whispered about only in rumor? Spend your poorly planned trip with us as we dive into 1973's The Wicker Man, then follow that up with 2019's Midsommar! (After that, we just needed to be alone for a while.)
.: 2:05:02 :: 23 June 2023 :.

After Midnight 02: Sometimes something sounds like it's gonna be an absolute riot before you actually have to do it. Anyway, Here's 2015's Sharkansas Women's Prison Massacre. Before you ask, no, there's no women's prison. Or a massacre.
.: 50:00 :: 09 June 2023 :.

017: Memorial Day Weekend! A perfect time for picnics, cookouts, and watching 30-year-old teenagers hold surfboards without ever getting in the water! We’re kicking off summer 2023 by heading back to summer 1965 and sneaking into a twin bill of Beach Blanket Bingo and The Beach Girls and the Monster!
.: 1:00:08 :: 26 May 2023 :.

016: We see a Full Moon rising! We're gonna explore the early days of Charles Band's empire with 1985's Trancers (yes, we know, that one's technically Empire, shut up) and 1989's Puppet Master, all while trying to figure out how a company that started out consistently entertaining ended up making Barbie and Kendra Storm Area 51 or whatever.
.: 1:21:17 :: 12 May 2023 :.

015: From the depths of the nightmare plane they return! One is previously underappreciated and currently receiving a modern re-evaluation. The other is super goofy and has the Wings lady in it. Get your Jolt Cola and stay awake for 1985's A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge and 1987's Slumber Party Massacre II!
.: 1:32:16 :: 28 April 2023 :.

014: Both of this week's movies probably had a plot, but we couldn't bother following them. One of them had a lawyer, we think? Doesn't matter. We're here to sing the fiery, kick-punchy, bullet-riddled praises of this year's nominees in the category for Greatest Movies Called Above the Law, Not Starring Steven Seagal Division: 1989's Action USA and 1986's Righting Wrongs!
.: 1:17:23 :: 14 April 2023 :.

013: Richard Elfman and the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo brought their musical theatrical arthouse cabaret thing to the big screen with 1980's Forbidden Zone! Four decades later, Elfman made a movie where his son poops an obelisk after having sex with his stepmom! It's 2019's Aliens, Clowns and Geeks! We don't get paid for this!
.: 1:02:30 :: 31 March 2023 :.

012: The Midnight Movie Show is back and roughly the same as ever! We're kicking off Season Two with the 1964 film that changed pop culture foreve: A Hard Day's Night! (We're here to shine a light on obscure cinema.) After that, the Monkees smash that theatrical self-destruct button with 1968's Head! Fab!
.: 1:44:05 :: 17 March 2023 :.

Season 2 Trailer: Season 2 of Channel 37's Midnight Movie Show is coming soon!
.: 00:33 :: 16 March 2023 :.

After Midnight 01: Everyone at the Channel 37 Home Office is still on a beach somewhere, but that doesn't mean we aren't still watching goofy shit. The gang comes together to present 1966's Rat Pfink A Boo Boo, winner of the Cannes Etoile de platine award for Outstanding Achievement in Not Being a Typographical Error!
.: 47:30 :: 04 February 2023 :.

011: We're all about getting that educational content in under the wire as we take a look at the UK's Video Nasty era! We open with 2021's Censor, a film set during the height of the controversy. Then, we look at two of the films directly affected by the censorship laws of the day: 1968's Night of the Living Dead and 1972's The Last House on the Left.
.: 2:24:25 :: 16 December 2022 :.

010.5: From all of us at WHXN 37 to all of you, happy holidays! We're celebrating with some of the finest examples of blessings and tidings and cheer and all that, starting with 2000's A Diva's Christmas Carol! After that, we will hear nothing against 2017's A Christmas Prince!
.: 1:35:14 :: 09 December 2022 :.

010: We've got animation from across the globe for you this week! Fantastic Planet from 1973 will make you laugh! It will make you cry! It will make you think someone might have put something in your Fruity Pebbles! After that, recapture the feeling of looking for Japanese boobie cartoons in a shabby video store while we look back on 1986's Project A-Ko!
.: 1:16:28 :: 02 December 2022 :.

009: We're coming together as one to battle the forces of evil this week on The Midnight Movie Show! Follow Barry Bostwick into hell and back, even as he does that weird thing with his thumb, in 1982's Megaforce! After that, we're going to look in on Wish.com's Robocop in 1990's Super Force, but stick with us anyway!
.: 1:12:56 :: 18 November 2022 :.

008: It's Vampyr (pronounced wom-PEER) weekend on The Movie Show! You haven't truly seen 1931's Dracula until you've experienced it in the original Spanish! As if that's not enough, we got cowboy vampires on horses once we were able to track down 1987's Near Dark!
.: 1:25:02 :: 04 November 2022 :.

007: If you're gonna find yourself in pitched battle on the plains of a lost fantasy kingdom, you'd better find yourself a kickass weapon to carry around - and not use! Cast members of half a dozen TV shows you vaguely remember take this responsibility very seriously in 1981's The Sword and the Sorcerer! Then, get ready to doodle the Glaive in the margins of your English notebook after we dig into 1983's Krull!
.: 1:35:19 :: 21 October 2022 :.

006.5: It's the most wonderful time of the year! Celebrate your Halloween season with us and a few classic family specials! First, has any hero peered as unflinchingly into the face of terror than the bumbling pharmacist invited to 1967's Mad Monster Party? Then, the immortal Impaler of Transylvania matches wits with some amateur teenage detectives in 1979's The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Meet Dracula!
.: 1:13:31 :: 16 October 2022 :.

006: We're getting hassled by The Man on the Movie Show this week. Bruce Campbell's here to keep the streets of New York safe for the last half hour or so of 1988's Maniac Cop! After that, ROTOR isn't even the best robot in his own 1987 movie! All glory to Willard!
.: 1:16:14 :: 07 October 2022 :.

005: Go ahead and skip your lessons at Sensei Doug's this week, we've got you covered! First, 2021's New York Ninja remains lost in the swirling mists of time no longer! Then, we're gonna dive headlong into the seas of Cannon Films with 1984's Ninja III: The Domination!
.: 1:11:47 :: 23 September 2022 :.

004: You've had a rough week, so we're easing you into your weekend with classic British horror! First, a Victorian country squire solves the "nobody wants to work anymore" problem with a labor plan that's sure not to go badly at all, in 1966's The Plague of the Zombies! After that, sure, you got your Peter Cushing, you got your Christopher Lee, but really we know you're here for Kung Fu Rod Stewart dressed as a Dracula. It's 1971's The House That Dripped Blood!
.: 1:29:26 :: 09 September 2022 :.

003: We've got a smile on our face and a song in our heart! You will too, once you start your weekend right with 1974's Phantom of the Paradise, the best glam rock opera featuring a guy in a bird suit ever made! Then, Professor PJ Soles cultures your ass with 1979's Rock 'n' Roll High School! Gabba Gabba Hey!
.: 1:33:52 :: 27 August 2022 :.

002: Donald G Jackson: misunderstood visionary cinephile, or not that? Decide for yourself after tonight's double feature of Jackson-directed masterpieces! First up is the 1986 postapocalyptic nunsploitation oddity Roller Blade! After that, stick around while Rowdy Roddy Piper repopulates the human race despite frog monsters getting up in his fries, in 1987's Hell Comes to Frogtown!
.: 1:05:53 :: 12 August 2022 :.

001: Welcome to the season premiere of Channel 37's Midnight Movie Show! We're kicking off your weekend with tales of vengeance, beginning with 1984's iconic video store mainstay Angel! Then, only Squiggy and the American Werewolf stand between a cyborg assassin and her prey in 1991's Steel and Lace!
.: 1:44:42 :: 29 July 2022 :.
