Shogun Assassin - 08/31/13

Every week, a group of Internet radio superstars known as the Saturday Night Freak Show (Brent, Tom, Colin, Travis and Sean) file into a subterranean screening room somewhere in Freakshow, IL where they witness sights & sounds undreamed of by mortal men. They emerge... changed, not quite the beings they once were. Good or bad, they will debate the merits of what they have just experienced for the entertainment of you, the listener, and the betterment of mankind.

This week, Colin subjects the guys to Shogun Assassin (1980), which chronicles the adventures of a renegade warrior and his infant son as they travel the length and breadth of feudal Japan, slashing and maiming their way through hundreds of ninja assassins who are bent on their destruction.  Join the conversation as we talk about spraying blood geysers, the entertainment value of graphic on-screen maiming, the political correctness of choosing the correct ninja outfit, the Lone Wolf and Cub series, Zatoichi the Blind Swordsman and more!
