Welcome to the latest episode of Dead Air - the official podcast of The Liberal Dead!

This week, your host Jeff Konopka is joined by guest Jesse Bartel (of Geek Tyrant) to review the latest theatrical horror flick - Mama.

Things kick off with a spirited discussion of the film's #1 opening, the fate of its rival - The Last Stand - and the state of the January Box Office, in general. There is no "What We've Been Watching" segment this week, but it will return with the next episode.

Next up is the main course: a full-on in-depth review of Mama. You'll have to listen to find out the final verdict, but it's safe to say that there is a lot of varying opinions out there; both from the guys and audiences in general. Jeff also provides some intereseting feedback on the film courtesy of Twitter... Don't worry, spoilers are saved for last, and there is ample warning beforehand, so even if you haven't seen Mama, you can listen without having it ruined for you.

Dead Air will return next week with a look back at the the best genre films of 2012.

Also, keep your eyes peeled for the return of Dead Already - our Unofficial Walking Dead podcast - in February; as well as a new retrospective series on the Candyman films!
