Foycast 9 – Tar Balls to the Wall!



Foycast 9The greatest show about nothing since “Seinfeld” was canceled is back for its ninth installment. Tar balls may be the order of the day on the Gulf Coast where I roam, but this Foycast is more like a tar ball rolling downhill, building up momentum more and more as it goes on. My co-host Uncle Creepy started out ultra surly, but by the end he was all sunshine and rainbows after a giddy hour tripping down so-bad-it’s-good movie memory lane. “Let’s do the hustle!

After opening up discussing the oil spill currently threatening my hometown (tar balls, people!), talk moves on to contemplating why this summer movie season just plain sucks. Expect to hear more about the new Karate Kid movie than you ever thought you would on a podcast on a website called Dread Central. I’ll also tell you a bit about my obsession with Karate Kid knock-off films.

After that is when the tar ball rolling downhill achieves breakneck speed and destroys everything in its path, as I tell Creepy and all of you about the unsung awesomeness of Turbulence 3: Heavy Metal, an incredible motion picture that’s like Die Hard on a jumbo jet but if Marilyn Manson was John McClane and the terrorist hijackers were satanists trying to bring about the end of the world.

More? You want more? I Come in Peace! Split Second! No Retreat, No Surrender! Just a few of the other great slices of cinematic cheese we reminisce about.

And just when you think you’re safe – we talk Birdemic!

Somebody call the doctor ’cause it’s another hour of Foycast goodness. Some of you people actually listen to this crap. Some of you actually beg for more of this crap. Well, here you go. Now let’s do the hustle, dammit!

    Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy



    We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

    Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

    Principal photography began back in October 2017.

    Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth



    Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

    Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

    Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

    In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
