We don’t formally review any films this episode but we sure indulge in plenty of behind-the-scenes hyjinx. Yup, you’ll get a heaping noseful of our dirty laundry as we announce our plans for the summer and chew over the reasons that went into the decision to take the reprieve. Along the way we have a casual discussion about some of the upcoming summer releases and talk over Rob Zombie’s LORDS OF SALEM. Oh, we also welcome Jeff Shroeck to the panel. Glad to have you aboard, Jeff! Continue reading →
We take on the films of Gaspar Noe using I STAND ALONE (1998) and ENTER THE VOID (2009) as entry points, but that’s not before a contentious discussion about the micro-cinema film MANBORG (2011). Continue reading →
As we explain during the new intro to this episode, our first twenty some-odd shows have been vanished from public space since the demise of the Horror Palace a few months ago so, for the morbidly curious and the TCR hardcores, we’re rolling out re-releases of our humble horror beginnings.

The California Chainsaw Maxxacre is back! and he subjects The Cutting Room hosts to his cruel will and three truly disturbing films as only a bonafide sadist/sadomasochist could. Get ready for ‘Bodily Functions’ a’la Max Koch!
Not for the faint of heart, it’s great, big, cinematic helpings of poop, pee, and punishment this time around, folks. Continue reading →
All the world’s is a stage! Tom rolls the dice this time around and the topic of conversation for this installment of The Cutting Room Theater of the Mind is film adaptations of plays. Continue reading →

Come hell, come high water! Dave brings depression to the show. We may ostensibly be reviewing Mike Leigh’s NAKED, Lars Von Trier’s MELANCHOLIA, and the Ian Curtis biopic CONTROL, but what we’re actually doing is investigating our personal love affairs with sadness, the glorious tragedy of madness, and all sorts of other personal demons. Continue reading →
We’re honored to have had the chance to talk with Pat Healy on Mini-Episode 9! Pat’s an incredibly gifted character actor with an impressive list of projects under his belt. He’s worked with the likes of Werner Herzog, Paul Thomas Anderson, and Terry Zwigoff, to name just a few. His current film is the 2012 Sundance Entry COMPLIANCE.
Bonjour, amis! This episode is bursting with bones of contention, surrealist flourishes, French films and random hyjinx as Joe orders up the films of Jean-Pierre Juenet and Marc Caro.
We take an in-depth look at these steam punk visionary filmmakers and their films DELICATESSEN and CITY OF LOST CHILDREN. Somewhere along the way Joe gets into it with our special guest Sara Brooke [We love you, Sara!!] Continue reading →
The Orphan Shiller – Matt Farnsworth and Self-Promotion as Self-Destruction
by Dave Pace
This is a cautionary tale – a warning to all of us who would put ourselves Out There and try to court favour with the world. I can’t tell you exactly where the line that divides the marketing genius and the shameless whore is, all I can do is try and show you how far Matt Farnsworth went over it when trying to make the horror world fall in love with his film THE ORPHAN KILLER. Continue reading →
It’s Tom’s turn to call the shots this time around and he chooses two films from the mind of Mike Judge.
But before we get started with that your humble host offers up his review of Oliver Stone’s 2012 film SAVAGES.
Max, Jenna and Dave discuss the passion and pretense of all things Oliver Stone including his 2008 film W. This, logically, culminates in a discourse about the many wonders of marijuana. Continue reading →
All you listeners know by now that we need all the legitimizing we can get and to that end… hell, we’re damn proud to announce that The Cutting Room Movie Podcast is now officially part of Alltop’s kick ass family. Continue reading →
The founding fathers of The Cutting Room get together to discuss Spielberg’s Oscar nominated 2012 film of LINCOLN starring Daniel Day-Lewis.
Joe’s been off for a few weeks so he has energy to burn. He offers a sprawling introduction to the film before passing the baton over to Billy and Tom. It’s the first time the trio has been on together in quite awhile and it’s just like old times.
What does John Hughes and his film The Breakfast Club have to do with anything we are about to embark on in episode 026? Well, light up a smoke, put on the fights and get ready to be seduced by that sultry seductress Jenna Payne as we just may get to the bottom of this very odd question. Continue reading →
Merry Christmas! Welcome to the first annual Cutting Room Christmas Mini-Episode Special.
Inspired by the Christmas spirit, Joe, sitting in temporarily for Tom, welcomes back to The Cutting Room one the show’s original co-founders, William Bourassa Jr., aka Billy.
Billy helps Joe search for the true meaning of Christmas, absurdity, and language itself, using Frank Capra’s IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE (1946) and Dr. Seuss’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS (1966) as their guiding stars. Continue reading →
Benevuto! That’s right, no one does schizophrenia better than The Cutting Room. Come along for the ride as we make a complete about face from our previous episode– where we covered the Jackass phenomenon– and take a look at one of the most revered and influential masters of cinema, Federico Fellini.
Specifically we take a look at the lyrical LA STRADA and his soul-searching cinematic landmark film 8 1/2. Continue reading →
The moment has finally arrived! After a re-formatting transition that was tested by no less than the wrath of god (in the form of that power-robbing wench Sandy), we’re pleased to announce that we’ve emerged triumphant, like a gang of viking warriors. The spoils of our battle are here in the form of Episode 23, the first show in our new format. Check out our new duds! Continue reading →
Ah, parting is such sweet sorrow. Friends, Romans, Countrymen, we’ve had a mercurial dash across the horror podcast universe, scorching the sky like a blood-soaked meteor, but, alas, the time has come for us to part from this, the #1 horror review network on the planet. Foolhardy? Perhaps. Ballsy? Undoubtedly. But we part with fond farewells. Indeed, we’ve loved each and every minute that we’ve been here and wouldn’t trade our trials and tribulations for the world.
