"Enemy Territory" is hilarious territory! Guest co-host ROB SCHRAB!

Howdy again, HMN peeps -

They say April showers bring May flowers -- this particular May brings the blooming turdflower that is 1987's "Enemy Territory."

A down-on-his-luck insurance agent (Gary Frank) has a chance for a really big account, and it must be closed that day.  The problem?  She lives in a gang-ridden building, and night is falling.  As Barry enters the projects, another player in the drama arrives -- telephone repairman Will (played by Ray Parker Jr.) is there to, well -- fix the phones.  Once some inevitable gang interaction transpires, Barry and Will must team up and, along with some less-than willing residents of the building, attempt to escape the murderous clutches of the Vampires gang.

This not-on-DVD-or-Netflix film was billed as a breakout role for Ray Parker Jr. (yeah, the "Ghostbusters" theme song guy), who was expected to be minted as the next big action star.  Alas, like Howie Long, it was not to be.  Thankfully, we are left with this hilarious, over-dramatic actioner as his legacy.  The leader of the Vampires is played by Tony Todd, known to the horror world as the Candyman.  It's also one of the first roles played by "Clueless"'s Stacey Dash.  And we can't forget yet another constipated performance from Jan-Michael Vincent, as a Vietnam vet with a bizarre taste in pets, and interior decoration.

We couldn't be happier to welcome Rob Schrab as our guest co-host for this show.  You know him as an accomplished director and writer (Children's Hospital, Community, Sarah Silverman Program), and co-creator of the amazing Channel 101.  This show will be a treat!
