0038 ApesIn this week’s episode, dear listeners, we are joined once again by Matt Kessen for a discussion of Planet of the Apes! Matt Kessen, as you may recall, is the gentleman behind Reverend Matt’s Monster Science, and he is also a complete and total Planet of the Apes nerd.

  1. I’ve seen Beneath far too many times, probably for the same reason I’ve seen Megaforce and The Pirate Movie and something called Superfuzz (…oh, poor Ernest Borgnine) a bunch of times: Back when HBO and Cinemax were the cable movie channels you could get in rural Washington state (on your 13-channel TV) they would run certain movies over. And over. And over. It’d be Megaforce in the mix for a month, then it’d be back again a few months later, and so on. For some reason they really liked using Beneath more than any of the others.

    Basically, I grew up thinking that the bomb cult was the most important part of the Apes movie canon. Sad, no?
