Summer Slash: Der Samurai
Jun 09, 2020 Season 20 Episode 2
Johnny Spoiler, Atomic Atom, Nicky Lates, Dangerous Dave

It's week 2 of Summer Slash 2020, but we have to stop and take a minute to discuss a movie tangent.  A Made For TV situation.  We have to discuss all the Knight Rider sequels and rebooting attempts. Like Knight Rider 2000, Knight Rider 2010, Knight Rider: 2008, and Team Knight Rider.  Yes, Knight Rider: 2008 comes after Knight Rider 2010, that's not a typo.


There’s a German Slasher film out there with a 100% Rotten Tomato  rating, it was the debut feature of a filmmaker named Till Kleinert that he crowdfunded and he also used non-actors as the lead and the killer - Michel Diercks and Pit Bukowski did I mention it has a 100% rating on the tomato meter. 


A katana wielding maniac in a dress emerges from the woods and attacks a small village with 2 police officers, the hero of our story being the new kid with a badge.


I know police officers are not people’s favorite heroes right now, but this dude is just some innocent kid himself who seems to have taken the only job in this one job town he could get.  He spends most of his time feeding wild animals and he doesn’t even carry a gun.


This dude literally tries to reason the killer out of his killing spree with kind words and suggestions. 


One Word First impressions of the Der Samurai? Disturbing.


Last week? Summer Slash covered Scream Series and that took us all the way back to the 90s, so John tells the guys about this website he found called My Decade TV that takes you back to a bunch of decades on an old school TV dial.

Other highlights:

  • John tells the guys about Shirley on Hulu.
  • John talks about Spike Lee’s upcoming Netflix movie, Da 5 Bloods a Vietnam War drama.
  • Have you guys seen Samurai Cop? How did this one slip past us? 
  • Alien fans are still debating the eggs / Ridley’s 3rd prequel was centered on this problem.
  • Dave Has a solution for the HBO Max problem.
  • Our thoguhts on the new Nightmare 2 doc, Scream, Queen!
  • Ryan Gosling as the new Wolfman? 
  • Labyrinth 2 is looking for the new Goblin King.

Der Samurai Review (You Have To Listen to Hear The Whole Delicious and Delirious Details):

Crudest definition Der Samurai is a slasher film.

A slasher film is a sub-genre of horror films involving a killer murdering a group of people, usually by the use of bladed tools.

Let’s get back to our fluffy little hero in this movie and discuss the movie’s elements.

Like the killer mailing the murder weapon to the hero and then the hero delivering it to the killer on accident…The sword. The Penis. The Woods. The Wolf.

Highway To Hell? Since the hero was a cop. Let’s talk about a cop that polices Hell. In Highway To Hell.

Next week: Blood Diner.
