Greetings! It’s Adam Frazier aka FamousMonster and it’s time for another transmission from Skull-Face Island. As always I’m joined by Oroku Saki, David Allen — wait a second… where the HELL is David?
Guys, I hate to break it to you, but David is missing – he was last seen down by the lagoon with a fishing pole and a pack of Marlboro Reds. Producer Tim Grant and myself tried to find David before this week’s transmission but alas, we didn’t have enough time to coordinate with the natives and organize a proper search party. I’m sure he’ll turn up eventually…
Being as David is probably somewhere whistlin’ the theme to The Andy Griffith Show, Tim pulls double-duty this week as producer and co-host, so you’ll get to hear him butcher names and slur his speech as he drinks Dale’s Pale Ale and curses my name under his breath.
If you missed our previous transmissions, let me explain how this works. In the year 1991, US Flight 1313 experienced a mysterious, magnetic anomaly somewhere over the South Pacific. Engines failed, pilots cursed and prayed to their Gods, and three boys (that’s us!) washed ashore on Skull-Face Island, which of course is an ISLAND in the SHAPE of a SKULL! How cool is that!?
After exploring the dark interior of the island with machetes and bullwhips, we found an old communications array. Here’s the weird thing, it still works. Not only does it work, this thing is like Netflix, Amazon Instant, Video on Demand, and Apple TV combined – it’s got all the latest movies and television shows. We haven’t even bothered sending out a distress signal yet because we’re re-watching all 635 episodes of Gunsmoke right now…
On this week’s transmission, we’ll be covering all the latest movie news and take time out to discuss John Hillcoat’s latest film, Lawless, as well as the recent leaked script for the upcoming Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot.
OK, enough talking. Get ready for a whole lot of obscure references and explicit language!

Movie Review: Lawless
Skull-Face Island Masterpiece Theatre: On this week’s transmission, Tim and I provide a dramatic reading of the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles script, which recently leaked. Bay insists this is an old draft that bears little resemblance to the film he’s producing but… you be the judge.
