After the hell year that was 2020, the Thieves are at long last back on the couch together!  We catch up by chatting about the zaniness that is Record of Ragnarok and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 5, discuss Heat’s ongoing mission to ruin movies watch a new movie every day and how that’s been going, bum ourselves out with a double dose of sad news items, and finally give our thoughts on Studio Trigger and Hiroyuki Imaishi’s first feature film, the loud, energetic, and joyously colorful, 3DCG/2D hybrid from – can you believe it? – the year 2019: PROMARE.

Team B review Jack Frost (1998): the Michael Keaton film in which he plays a neglectful father and musician who, after dying in a fatal automobile accident, is given one last chance to make things right when his son summons him back to life (using a magical harmonica he gifted him on the eve of his death) as a wisecracking, fun-loving snowman – Oh Joy!

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming this evening to bring you a scream filled night of ghouls, ghosts, vampires, and kung fu. *Record Scratch* You heard me! On tonight’s Blade Licking Thieves spooktacular we’re watching the 1974 Hammer Films and Shaw Brothers co-production, The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires, in which Hammer Films regular, Peter Cushing (a.k.a. Grand Moff Tarkin), reprising his role as the legendary vampire hunter Van Helsing, teams up with Hong Kong martial art superstar David Chiang (and a host of other Shaw Brothers talent of the 70s) to wage battle against Count Dracula and the Seven Golden Vampires of China in this one of a kind East meets West genre mashup.
