EP 157 - TPUTS SUMMER TOP 10 80's EDITION - 1989

Welcome to Episode 157 of the Podcast Under the Stairs.

IMG_14B45D7D1030-1.jpeg

Join your host Duncan Under The Stairs discussing all things Horror on The Podcast Under the Stairs.

Summer has arrived at last Under the Stairs which means our 5th annual Top 10 series of shows has come to take you through those uncomfortably humid days with a hearty dose of horror!!

I am not one to be accused of short changing listeners or setting easy goals either which makes this years Top 10 series very special indeed!! Over the next 10 episodes in the series we will count down each year in the decade known as the 80's with the mission statement of creating the definitive Top 10 list of movies in the decade, but with a little TPUTS twist if you will. 

Noah's Ark rules will mean that each year will be represented in the creation of the list and will force myself and my guests to short list each year in the decade from 10 movies to 2!! That's right...only 2 movies from each year can go through which means that this list can/might & will be unlike any Top 10 list of 80's horror movies created on a podcast!!

On this final episode my guests are Daeron Wilson & Andy Blockley and we are looking at 10 movies from 1989 with mini reviews of Pet Semetary, The Burbs, Society, Shocker, The Church, Dead Calm, Tetsuo-The Iron Man, Santa Sangre, I, Madman, The Fly 2.

Intro – 0 - 4mins 15secs

Top 10 1989 - 4mins 15secs - 2hrs 31mins 25secs

Decision Time - 2hrs 31mins 25secs - 2hrs 53mins 50sec

Closing Out the Show- 2hrs 53mins 50sec - End

Closing Song - Ride on Time - Black Box

The 2 movies picked as going forward to the final roundtable representing the year 1989 are Society & Pet Semetary.

Which means the final list of 20 movies moving on to the roundtable to make the definitive top 10 list will be: 

  1. The Shining

  2. The Beyond

  3. The Thing

  4. Christine

  5. Gremlins

  6. Fright Night

  7. The Fly

  8. Hellraiser

  9. The Blob

  10. Society

  11. The Fog

  12. An American Werewolf in London

  17. Night of the Creeps

  18. Near Dark

  19. Pumpkinhead

  20. Pet Semetary

88 FILMS ITALIAN COLLECTION SERIES - DISC 15 - ALIEN 2: ON EARTH

The Podcast Under the Stairs presents our next instalment of The 88 Films Italian Collection Series.

italian15.jpg

Welcome to the next instalment of our sub-set of show exclusively looking at the Italian Collection releases of 88 Films.

88 Films have, for the last 2 years or so, have been on a tear releasing a torrent of Italian genre classics in high definition. I have been purchasing them and it should be no surprise to anyone, I have left them pretty much unwatched (what can I say...I'm a compulsive collector).

In order to watch the movies I buy, and of course create some quality content for you all Under the Stairs, I will be running through each of the movies on this bonus series between 1-2 movies a month depending on the TPUTS schedule.

So strap yourself in for a rollercoaster ride of alleged plagiarism, zombies, gore, rape, genital mutilation, sexism, revenge, gialli, cops and robbers, cannibalism, sci fi & more bush and titties than an annual subscription to Penthouse magazine.

Disc 15 is a frustrating little movie that was sued by the owner of Alien and then went on to sue the makers of The Descent...its weird rip-off unofficial sequel time as we look at Ciro Ippolito's Alien 2: On Earth (1980).

The grading follows the Netflix rating style of 1 = Hated It, 2 = Didn’t Like It, 3 = Liked It, 4 = Really Liked It & 5 = Loved It

Alien 2: On Earth

Duncan: 2.5

Up next on the Italian Collection Series is Disc 16 - The Mad Dog Killer
