In this, the fourth episode of The Forgotten Flix Podcast, Joel and Jason get into a “passionate” debate discussion about the 1989 creature feature double bill: Deepstar Six and Leviathan.

Then, we spend some quality time sharing the “6 Movies You Must See featuring Creatures from the Deep”.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the show:

— We have a brief discussion about some recent movies we’ve seen.

— We get into the meat and potatoes (or is that calamari?) of Deepstar Six and Leviathan.

— We play listener feedback.

— We give you our six movies you must see.

So, check it out and let us know what you think! You can send your feedback to feedback (at) forgottenflix dot com or leave a voice mail message at the number located beneath the VHS tapes.

    Hi Joel & Jason
    I watched “Alligator” last night! It’s been on my shelf for a couple of years, I’ve just never gotten around to it. You guys talking about it, reminded me, so I of course had to have me some gator mayhem! And a good thing too because, wow, it was actually better than I expected it to be.
    Robert Forster was outstanding and Henry Silva… ha ha… OMG!!
    Thank you for reminding me! πŸ™‚

    I will now relate a little anecdote in regards to the “Creepshow 2 episode: The Raft”

    One summer many many years ago we used to go to this lake close by. It had a little jetty that formed a little basin or pool for young kids and further out into the lake it had a small raft. (See where I’m going with this?) I swam out and climbed onto it to soak up some sun and also relax a little. I’m not sure how long I lay there, not a care in the world, but after a while I decided to swim back. The moment my feet hit the water, this damn episode “flooded” my mind and I quickly retracted my feet…
    I sat for a couple of minutes thinking: DAMN YOU, Stephen King!! before I dove back in and, like a deranged person, swam for the shore and shot out of the water onto the jetty. All this whilst trying to keep my cool, of course. πŸ˜‰

    For the remainder of the day I stayed on the shore…

      Peter– Now, that’s an awesome story! I think those of us with overactive imaginations have been there a time or two. Actually, I had the same experience after watching JAWS. Of course, it was night time, so the idea of getting in the water was freaky-deaky indeed. Oh, I should probably mention that it was a SWIMMING POOL I wouldn’t get into! Yep, I’m your friendly, neighborhood wuss. πŸ™‚

      Great story! Thanks for sharing it.
