Show Notes

Time to pay another visit to the Dungeon of Directors, and unleash a variety of cult horrors. Writer, director, producer, Larry Cohen just had a knack for taking ideas and fleshing them out. Making something that sounds ridiculous, much more compelling and fun than it has any right to be.

The Davis family is expecting, and the pregnancy seems so perfect. Until the baby is much more monstrous than expected, and goes on a crawling killing spree in It's Alive (1974)! A series of murders in New York City, committed by people who seemingly have no connection, all provide the same response when asked why they did it: God Told Me To (1976). And then from there, are you eating it, or is it eating you? There's a new dessert treat craze sweeping the nation, but it seems to have a mind-altering effect on those who consume it. Enough is never enough of The Stuff (1985)!
