Episode 222 - The New Kids - A Sleazy Spader Springtime! 2: "The Sleazening" No.3
Jim Wallace joins Jon Cross again for their third wade through the strange and sleazy swamp of James Spader.
This week they're discussing The New Kids in which Spader plays a flowery, western style blouse wearing cowboy villain in chic, grey boots and with bleached blonde surfer hair. It's most odd. He terrorises two orphaned army brats who live on their wheeling-dealing Uncle Charlie's Santa themed gas station-carnival-funfair-petting zoo until they can't take it no more and the tables get turned.
I'd say you couldn't write this stuff but apparently you can if you're Jake Gyllenhaal's Dad!
Directed by the man behind Friday the 13th, Sean S Cunningham, The New Kids turns out to be a divisive movie for our two intrepid hosts and leads to discussions of every nook and cranny of this odd genre mash up for signs of sleaze and redemption.
