New Splathouse Podcast Episode Details: From Splathouse: “On this episode of The SPLATHOUSE Podcast, Lexy Myranda (@lexy_myranda) returns to talk about her first time watch of 1978’s THE BEES (available in the US on bluray from @vinegarsyndrome and streaming on @shudder)!
This movie has it all, but all it really needed, let’s be honest, is the raw sex appeal of a Mr. John Saxon. WHICH. IT. DELIVERS. IN. SPADES. (It will make you not want to get your pets spayed or neutered, Mr. Barker!*)
Something, something WU-TANG CLAN, something, something BEE MOVIE, something, something BEES ARE INCREDIBLE CREATURES AND WE WILL MISS THEM WHEN THEY’RE GONE!
Russ P. Coltrane T. Firefly did some creeping and entering to drop off this week’s tape. Ms. Sarah Jane (aka @fookthis on Twitter and Letterboxed) gives her recommendations for fans of THE BEES. Sarah and Mike argue. Jim refuses to pick a side. And Lexy is thankful this is a shorter episode than usual.
All this and MORE on this week’s SPLATHOUSE!
Thank you for listening! Share the episode any way you can. Break into your friend’s phone and subscribe them to this show; maybe they won’t be mad. IDK LMK.
