This week’s movie picks are:Background Info (from Wikipedia): Killer Klowns From Outer Space is a 1988 American comedy horror movie, made by The Chiodo Brothers and starring Grant Cramer. It is the only Chiodo Brothers’ directed and written film – they have worked in many other projects in other roles, such as producing and visual effects. The film is about a race of aliens (who resemble evil clowns) that arrive on Earth to capture and harvest people to use as sustenance.

Jason P.’s Pick: 

Copycat (1995)

Jason’s Pick:

The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)

Joel’s Pick:

The Dark Half (1993)

Next week’s episode, and the FINAL movie in the 2012 October Spooky Flix Fest is Halloween (1978). While certainly not a “forgotten flick” with horror fans, it’s definitely one worth discussing and remembering, especially when you consider the recent remakes and numerous sequels. And to make it even better, we’ll be joined by guest host Darrell Taylor of the The Taylor Network of podcasts!

    Joel and Jason,
    Thanks so much for having me as a guest on Forgotten Flix. I had a blast, and I love the way this show turned out. It was one of my all-time favorite guest visits. I’ll plug this episode big-time during Episode 005 of Movie Podcast Weekly.
    Thanks again.
