Episode 48: Attack of the Transplants

 
 

The last episode of Season 4 is about transplants. The medical miracle that can completely change the course of a dying body to a thriving body. Or it can completely change your personality and turn you into a crazy maniac on the run from society. Either way, Slate will wrap Season 4 with “Attack of the Transplants.”

Episode 47: Horrible Hippies

If cinema is to be believed, a hippie is nothing more than a sex crazed, pot smoking, drum circling burnout who doesn’t work, doesn’t bathe and would want nothing more than to join a death cult and go on a LSD fueled murder spree. On today's episode we’re gonna groove out on the films that show the wilted side of flower power. So be sure to turn on, tune in and drop out with us a we become Horrible Hippies.

Slate's Season 4 director profile is all about a filmmaking couple, Michael and Roberta Findlay. The Findlays made some of the weirdest, sickest underground roughies and sex films throughout the 60s and 70s until Roberta graduated to super-violent horror movies of the 80s. They worked under a variety of different names with a variety of underground filmmakers and porn actors and actresses. And their story gets weirder by the minute. Today we present Michael and Roberta Findlay - Sexploitation’s First Couple.

Episode 40: Big Bugs

 
Slums_GIF_BigBugs.gif
 

Bugs are disgusting, horrible creatures. So naturally Hollywood started exploiting our fear and fascination with bugs in the early 50s. These early monster bug films, born of the atomic age, continued to blossom into a few new genres of Big Bug films over the next 50 years and they still turn up every now and then today. We hope this one gives you nightmares for weeks to come!
