27: Listener Requests! (The Hunger and Near Dark)

This week we got some requests from Honorary Hag Taylor. This week’s movies are The Hunger (1983), a mayo-based cold salad from the director of Top Gun and the cinematographer of Lethal Weapon, and Near Dark (1987). We also talk about what we would do if we met David Bowie (today), Bela Lugosi’s Dead by Bauhaus (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKRJfIPiJGY), how Ryan Murphy ripped off The Hunger for American Horror Story: Hotel, Joshua John Miller and Near Dark’s connection to Halloween 3 and Halloween 3’s glue for the horror genre, entirely metal playgrounds, and more
