On this week’s Cheer and Loathing, it’s all about lady killers and epic endings as we discuss “Sleepaway Camp” and “April Fool’s Day”.
THIS EPISODE: “SLEEPAWAY CAMP” AND “APRIL FOOL’S DAY”
Meet us at the waterfront after the social. We’re going to listen to this week’s Cheer and Loathing episode!
It’s a new month and a new theme on Cheer and Loathing. In honor of April Fool’s Day, we’re featuring movies with shocking twist endings. This week, we’re taking a fashion-forward trip to the 80s to explore a couple of cult classic slasher (sort of) films. First up is the film that boasts what, to this day, remains one of the most talked-about twists in horror history. It’s all about Angela, Angela, Angela on Sleepaway Camp. Then we get in the spirit of tomfoolery by debating a film whose marketing campaign and surprise ending hoodwinked a lot of horror films. Of course, it’s April Fool’s Day. Get ready for the ultimate drinking game…and the ultimate weekend getaway. It’s a can’t miss episode!
Don’t forget that each month you have a chance to win a killer prize just for supporting the show. This month, if you leave a review of the show on iTunes, you’ll be entered to win a a stunning “Hereditary” inspired poster from one of our favorite artists, Chris Garafolo of Quilt Face Studios.
