The Unheard Nerd Movie Podcast #7 [Evil Dead II]

February 21, 2013

John and Will are joined by a very special guest this week to discuss that film. Thomas Quinlan of Hand Solo Records pulls up a chair as the trio talk about Evil Dead II.

-

Why Evil Dead II? Have you never listened to the show before! Will confessed to having never seen Evil Dead II in the very first movie podcast. Disgusted at this omission from his viewing history, Thomas threatened to boycott the show until the situation was rectified. Several months of trickery and deceit later and Will has finally watched the film. Did he like it? Thomas and John do. Find out.
