Skull-Face Island Movie Podcast presented by Geeks Of Doom
Episode 04: Champagne With My Campaign
Hello! It’s Adam Frazier aka FamousMonster and it’s time for another transmission from Skull-Face Island. David Allen, Tim Grant and myself haven’t slept in days – we’re too busy watching the 25th Anniversary of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. I mean seriously, how can you afford to sleep knowing there’s Grade-A programming like this being broadcast over the airwaves? Hey, speaking of sharks…
“Sometimes that shark looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And the thing about a shark is he’s got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll’s eyes. When he comes at ya, he doesn’t even seem to be livin’… until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then… ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin’. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin’ and the hollerin’ those sharks come in and… they rip you to pieces.” — Quint, Jaws
Yeah Quint we get it – you’re a grizzled old man who’s seen some pretty messed-up things in his day. You’re hardcore, but all you ever had to worry about were a few measly sharks. Sharks? Seriously? Try this on for size, you old seafaring bad-ass you:
In the year 1991, US Flight 1313 soared unknowing to its death. As the vessel sank into the ocean’s depths, three boys washed ashore on Skull-Face Island. Near death, pursued by vicious creatures, the boys stumbled upon shelter – who built it and for what purpose, none could say.
To their shock and amazement, a 55-inch TV glowed within, streaming every movie ever made. Those three boys grew up to be three (handsome) men – men who build stuff with their bare hands and fight prehistoric monsters with bullwhips and machetes. Men who, when they’re not too busy exploring ancient temples or swimming with saddle-backed Megladons, watch movies and discuss them for your listening pleasure.
On this week’s transmission, we talk about special effects master Carlo Rambaldi, Terry Gilliam‘s next movie, and casting possibilities for The Expendables 3. This week’s movie review is Jay Roach‘s latest comedy, The Campaign, starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis.
Get ready for a whole lot of obscure references and explicit language, and maybe – if you’re lucky – The Prince of Darkness quoting Ingmar Bergman.

Movie Review: The Campaign
The Red Phone: We dial 6-6-6 on a mysterious red rotary phone that is apparently a direct-line to Satan, the Prince of Darkness himself. Turns out he’s a pretty nice guy.
