Krueger Nation Five-Oh!

Krueger-Nation-50-ShowsAw yeaaaawww! Johnny Krueg delivers the big five-oh, and this one is a standout episode, with several uber-cool guests dropping in with awesome movie reviews and tributes to the show. Things get rolling with a classic ‘Look What You Did!’® segment where Johnny ponders where the Wrong Turn franchise actually took its own wrong turn. Then, Mike Cadaver of Corpse Cast turns in a review of Oldboy, the 2013 remake of the mind-blowing 2003 original. Was a remake necessary? Tune in and find out!

Johnny himself reviews two great ‘80s movies, starting with Slaughter High, from 1986. Prepare for an in-depth discussion of mushroom stamps and unfortunate tile burns, followed by humorous descriptions of multiple onscreen deaths, by lawnmower, septic tank, acid bath, coat rack, and so on.

Lady Death Rattle follows up with an awesome review of Lucio Fulci’s okay-for-some-but-maybe-not-you TV movie from 1991, Voices from Beyond! Then Xander Kane crosses both an ocean and a language barrier for the 2012 made-for-TV Spanish thriller, Morgana, about a girl who suffers from disturbing visions.

After this, Johnny holds court on his second film, Cutting Class (1989), which featured Martin Mull, Roddy McDowell, and some guy named Brad Pitt!

Then Evil Druid and Pantsless Hillbilly drop by from Horrorcopia to dissect, uh, I mean discuss the new body-modification flick, American Mary, from 2012. The show wraps up with a segment of Stuff That Johnny Krueg Likes©: this time, he brings up some cool anniversaries for two classic horror franchises (hint: one is 30 years old, and the other is 40)! You can download this episode from iTunes or from the Krueger Nation site.

Enjoy—and here’s to the next fifty! Aw yeaaaaawww!

[Running time: 1 hour 33 minutes]

[Warning: In fine Krueger Nation tradition, this episode is peppered with a healthy mix of F- and T-bombs. Not recommended for playing at church functions, bridge tournaments, or any other events where they serve English tea with those little cucumber sandwiches that have the crusts trimmed off!] ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ image: Krueger Nation poster: Jason Voorhees mask, by Esparta Palma | source | CC
