Movie Summary[]


Johnny Blaze, tortured by the Ghost Rider's curse, gets a chance of redemption through protecting the Devil's son, whose father is pursuing him.


Now hiding out in Eastern Europe, Johnny Blaze is still struggling with the curse of the Ghost Rider–the devil's bounty hunter. Johnny meets a priest named Moreau, who asks Johnny to find a boy named Danny and bring him back. But there's a catch–Satan is looking for the boy too, and has a personal stake in the matter. But if Johnny can find Danny first and save the boy's soul, there's a chance Johnny can save his own soul as well.

Listener Mail[]


"Mail Title" from Hector Lastnamewithheld @Time
Immediate digression regarding Elliott's dismay that somebody is posting under his name in the AV Club comments. Hector wants the Peaches to review more films featuring ding-dong mutilation.
"Mail Title" from Matthew Lastnamewithheld @Time
Regarding Prometheus and what constitutes "canon" in a fictional universe.
"Mail Title" from Dan Lastnamewithheld @Time
A suggestion that Stuart should exclaim "Sacrebleu!" during the climactic moment in Elliott's recounting of any given film's plot.


  • Deathdream (1972) by Bob Clark (Elliott) @Time
  • Space Jail (2012) by Stephen St. Leger, James Mather (Stuart) @Time
  • Topkapi (1964) by Jules Dassin (Dan) @Time
Deathdream is notable for its reasonable '70s clothes.
Elliott didn't know that Merlin aged backwards. They propose a pornographic film called Asian Backwards starring John Merlin, who isn't proud of what he did.
