There Can Be Only One – The Podcast 16: “House”

[Explicit language]


TCBOO-Podcast-logoTwo movies titled House enter, only one will leave (with its title) as Herman Davis and Robert Rau watch the 1986 horror film and the 1977 “it’s gotta be horror film because what else could it be” Japanese import to determine which film should be called House.

Like most of these podcasts, this episode came about because both Herman and Robert have watched one of these movies. Herman saw the ’86 version because his parents had no problem with Herman getting nightmares. Also, George Wendt plays the neighbor, and that’s always a plus. Robert owns the ’77 version on Criterion because it is totally bonkers and shouldn’t have ever been made.

While both films do feature houses, does either one deserve to have that title? Listen if you dare.
