Episode 18: Shot-on-Video Horror, Part Two, feat. Patrick Ripoll of Tracks of the Damned

ENJOY EVEN MORE TALES OF THE TAPE AS WE DELVE FURTHER INTO THE INSANE DEPTHS OF THE MOST NEOPHYTIC MOVIES EVER TO GRACE A VIDEO RENTAL STORE!



Bring on part two of three! Wait, of three? That can’t be right. Oh, yeah, this is a four-part epic now. Gabe and special co-host Patrick Ripoll of Tracks of the Damned (who did most of the research) break down 21 more shot-on video horror movies; nine of which one or both of them have been able to actually see, including ‘classics,’ like the Polonia Brothers’ Hallucinations (1986) & Splatter Farm (1987), Jeff Hathcock’s Night Ripper! (1986), Chester Novell Turner’s Tales from the Quadead Zone (1987), and Gary P. Cohen’s genuine cult classic, Video Violence (1987).
