When it comes to the “whodunit” subgenre of mystery movies, the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, knows the filmmakers are going for and area ready for the surprises. The question is where and from tone do the surprises around. Murder mysteries seem to have two speeds: deadly and irreverent. The Cinephile Hissy Fit team found a movie and a guest co-host to fit those two descriptions.

For their 104th episode, two murderous film critics, two well-heeled dads, and two suspicious teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan welcome guest Mark Krawczyk of Special Mark Productions to the first of two feature episodes. A lover of cult classics and schlock of any variety, Mark suggested the boys put their detective skills and funny bones to the test with 1985’s much-loved Clue. Mark brings his own cinematic magnifying glass to toasting this brand of comedy. Come for the shared challenge and tirade and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Enjoy our podcast!
