Midnight Video - Doomsday Clock 12: The Exorcist III


BOOM!!!  This is it folks.  The clock has struck midnight and the last instalment of the Doomsday Clock resonates in harmony with our first ever show.  We've gone full circle and are rounding off things... for now, with another William Peter Blatty film:  The Exorcist III aka. Legion.

This'll be the last 'proper' show for the forseeable future, but we aim to get things running via Skype, once Phil has settled into new-father mode again.  As always thanks for listening and hope you enjoy.

Midnight Video - Doomsday Clcok 11: Dust Devil


Bruce Dickinson told us there was two midnights to midnight, but he might have been sketching out Lord Iffy Boatrace at the time.  Fortunately for us, Richard Stanley upped the ante after his marvellous HARDWARE with this extremely unique and visually sumptuous flick.  This ain't no hand-held hoover, this is a DUST DEVIL.

Midnight Video - Doomsday Clock 10: Santa Sangre


We're now in double figures and Doomsday Clock 10 is comprised of arm envy, oedipal rage and Al from Quantum Leap's brother.  Oh yeh, and it's directed by someone called Alejandro Jodorowsky.  It's bloody and could be considered holy, it's Santa Sangre!

Midnight Video: Doomsday Clock 9: Big Trouble in Little China


In the Mouth of Madness was the winner of the listener's choice in our poll, but a close second was this classic slice of Hong Kongesque hokum from Carp and Kurt.  With just three minutes left until midnight, we chop sockey towards Doomsday in the company of Jack Burton and Egg Sheng as they cause Big Trouble in Little China.
