INTRODUCTION

For this episode we welcome a show favorite, John Cribbs. John, along with co-founder Christopher Funderburg, manage and contribute to the long form movie review, discussion, archive and analysis website ‘The Pink Smoke’ www.thepinksmoke.com one of the greatest film website situations on this godforsaken planet.

The film we are discussing tonight was introduced to me and Dan Pullen (aka ‘fucking Dan Pullen’), by John and is a first view for both of us. The movie does not include our usually amount of blood and mayhem… or any of Dan’s favorite subjects (Demon Fucking) but it does have a darkness and subversiveness to it that lends itself well to our Four Brains One Movie compendium of questionable material.

Tonight’s film is Noel Black’s 1968 film “Pretty Poison”, starring Anthony Perkins and Tuesday Weld.

We had a great time with John and learned a lot as usual when he is on the show. Give the show a listen, and when you are done with that, let us know what you think on Twitter…. links:
