Episode 55 - NHP B-Side Session
Living up to our “typically” every other Tuesday release schedule, here it is Hitchhikers...one week late, & not what we promised. Instead, it’s an open floor discussion of randomness including, but not limited to: Season 2 of Eli Roth’s History of Horror and Creepshow on Shudder, Rob Zombie remaking The Munsters, a mini-dive into Unhinged (2020), & we discuss a few documentaries that we’ve gotten into lately. We also talk about some other podcasts we enjoy, Wrestlemania 37, the Toxic Avenger remake, fantasy booking an episode for Season 3 of The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs, & we share our thoughts on the newest reimagining of Mortal Kombat that releases on 4/23. ***A Reminder: This will be the last show for at least a month...just need some time to refresh & recharge before we return better than ever with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) for EP. 56!!!

Episode 47 - Pumpkinhead (1988) Review
Greetings once again Hitchhikers!!! We’re halfway through our NHP Halloween Favorites theme for October & we’re bringing a guest with us this time - one of the hosts from Raised in Horror: The Psycho Siblings Podcast - Justin Ramsey!!! For this review, we dive into Stan Winston’s directorial debut, Pumpkinhead (1988) for EP. 47. We ask if the title is a bit misleading, leaving us with an earthbound Xenomorph-type being instead of a jack o’ lantern-headed entity. The Dick Warlock Factor is in full effect and we talk about shirtless Lance Henriksen way too much. *NOTE: At the end of the previous episode, we said Fright Night (1985) was the next review. Plans changed, so we bumped up Pumpkinhead and Fright Night will be released on Halloween.*

Episode 46 - The Ghost and Mr. Chicken (1966) Review
🎶🎵Reunited and it feels so good!🎵🎶 Welcome back Hitchhikers...it’s great to be back & it’s been way too damn long!!! Taking September off wasn’t the plan, but sometimes you gotta adapt to what’s going on. We’re so excited to kick off the spooky season of October with our first of three NHP Halloween Favorites, the King’s pick for EP. 46, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken (1966)!!! We decided to start the month off light-hearted and crank up the scary as we go on. This King family favorite is basically a Scooby-Doo plot without Scooby-Doo, that stars the legendary Don Knotts as our lovable loser - Luther Heggs. The Mayor has issues with crickets, there’s Don Knotts impressions, NHP Halloween giveaway news, & shenanigans abound.

AHHH...the great outdoors!!! There’s not many things better than scary stories being told by a campfire, so we agreed to make another go of a camping theme this summer, cracking beers & facing fears, making horror anthologies the topic of conversation, picking up right where we left off with Creepshow (1982), we bring you Creepshow 2 (1987) for EP. 44!!! We get some old school King parenting, while spiteful King makes a triumphant comeback! The Mayor says “filler isn’t filler if it’s effective,” and we give mini-reviews of the lesser known Creepshow 3, as well as our thoughts on the new tv series from Shudder.

The Lord envies the King a little bit and we discuss a certain jump scare from the movie while we try to figure out where it ranks all-time for jump scares. We ask what exactly is the measurement criteria to snag an Oscar nomination for Best Editing (let alone win it) and we get some wifey hot take mini reviews, in which the Mayor gets “Mayored.”

Episode 41 - Night of the Creeps (1986) Review
What better way to close out June than wait until the last day to release the final entry for It Came from Late Night TV Month...Night of the Creeps (1986) for EP. 41?! We discuss how this may be the ultimate love letter to all things horror/science fiction, King tries to crush the Lord’s fanboy dreams of meeting Fred Dekker, & we share bathroom stall graffiti memories from our younger days. We also ask is this and The Monster Squad (1987) in the same univer...Dekkerverse & do we really want a sequel 35+ years later?? Oh yeah...Tom Atkins y’all. Recognize. All this & more in EP. 41 - Night of the Creeps (1986)!!!

Episode 40 - Sssssss (1973) Review
Greetings Hitchhikers & welcome to our second entry for It Came from Late Night TV Month for EP. 40 where we are bringing to you Sssssss (1973)!!! First things first, we want to apologize for the poor audio quality we are regrettably exposing you to for this episode. Skype wasn’t our friend the night we recorded this show and our schedules didn’t allow us time to re-record segments that truly needed redone. This is the best chicken salad we could come up with. Anyways, we ask, “What exactly did Strother Martin inject Dirk Benedict with in one particular scene and was Harry, the drunken snake once human or a real snake?” Also, we discuss our favorite special FX/transformation movies from yesteryear. Our personal feelings toward the snake kingdom are revealed and we spitball ideas for the sequel that never happened.

Episode 39 - Silent Rage (1982) Review
Greetings Hitchhikers and welcome to “It Came From Late Night TV” Month here on the Highway for June!!! We are going to be reviewing three of our personal favorite, oddball, quirky movies you’d catch staying up past your bedtime that have become cult classics among horror/sci-fi fans. Roundhouse kicking this month off is the Chuck Norris vs. Great Value Michael Myers flick, Silent Rage (1982) for EP. 39!!! We compare fashion similarities between our bad guy John Kirby and the Lord, while we also feel brief “dad quarantine pity” for Kirby...until he picks up an axe. Chuck Norris pulls a Dr. Loomis and the single greatest line in NHP’s show note history begins a deep cut discussing one of the weirdest montages in 80s cinema. We also ask, “Is this a slasher horror movie?” The King and Mayor agree, while the Lord wants to be stubborn and oppose. 😜 What do you say Hitchhikers, is this a horror movie?!

Episode 38 - Silverado (1985) Review
HOWDY HITCHHIKERS!!! We have a rootin’, tootin’ review for you that will satisfy your inner cowboy as we finish out Wild West Month for May; we bring you the star-studded Silverado (1985)!!! Right off the bat we go barkin’ at a knot when we realize every VHS the Lord finds at Goodwill costs him a quarter and gives us the history and meaning of the muff pistol. We take time to recognize the massive amount of horror movie connections there are with this and we discuss luck and what lucky charms we all have. Did I mention there’s virtual social distancing whiskey shots with the King? There are...but only of the good stuff. Oh, and he also explains that Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and The Fast & the Furious are essentially the same movie. Somehow. All this and more in EP. 38 - Silverado (1985), available NOW on all your favorite podcasting apps!!!
