Welcome to the home page of The Black Dog Podcast.

Join Lee, Darren, Jim and Elton as they waffle, wonder and jabber on about film, geek news, video games and any other tangential rubbish that springs to mind. Before reviewing a movie from yesteryear removing either the Rose-Tinted Specs or a Shit-Covered Goggles, to see if the film was really as good (or bad) as popular opinion would have you believe.

This week Jim returns to normality, but still manages to watch a film about screaming foreheads. Elton runs, well walks, well kinda misses, a half marathon. Darren gets a new(ish) phone which is not wanted by the police, HONEST! He also watches Monkey Man and plays a horror game fighting Muppets (as you do). While Lee takes part in a film quiz, in a cinema, surrounded by "media studies" students, a pillow of popcorn hangs in the balance. And he also watches a creepy low budget indie film found in the depths of Amazon Primes rent list. 

Then after some feedback for last weeks episode we move on to this weeks film. A remake (kinda) of the Patrick Swayze 1989 action classic Roadhouse which should have perhaps been renamed Beach Front Tiki Bar.
