Episode Info:

Some movies are so strange, so bizarre, so ultimately excellent that they belong in their own pocket universe of The Sci-Fi Podcast, known as Planet X! Mattroid will be joined in each of these short episodes by a special guest and together they’ll discuss a relatively unknown movie and any number of related (and unrelated) tangents.

The big 50 is almost here! Episode 50, nearly finished in the editing room, is almost live. Until then you’ve got something to hold you over. This episode’s guest is the subtle, quiet-yet-hilarious Zach Merris. The reason Zach was chosen for this Planet X episode is because Zach is an 80s comedy aficionado, huge John Hughes fan, and 80s era music enthusiast – but he doesn’t know crap about sci-fi movies. It was also his first time watching this movie, which just so happens to rate as one of Mattroid’s all-time-favorite 80s AND sci-fi films – WEIRD SCIENCE.

Have you seen it?

Chat about the movie in the comments section.


There’s a big episode coming up, so until then make sure to check out our friends and family at Movie Podcast Network.
