70: A Quiet Place

Imagine a world in which making a sound could mean certain death. A sudden cough or a sneeze (or probably a toot) could result in your being mauled by a vicious monster! Thankfully, this is just the premise of today's featured property—the recent blockbuster horror flick, A Quiet Place—and not real life. We can fart to our heart's content! However, in this episode, your favorite sham host Andrew asks Eric and Marcus to set a story in the film's terrible, silent world. Will they keep their cheeks clenched? Or will a loose toot be their doom?

64: Brigsby Bear

Hi friends! It's your friend and host for this week, Andrew! Isn't it great that I get to do a show with my friends, Eric and Marcus, and you all (also my friends) listen to it? The world is a big place and full of strange and unknown things, so it's important to have friends to go through it with. I learned that from Brigsby, but you know that. ... Wait... You don't know Brigbsy? From TV? He's a bear that travels through space and time, teaching lessons to aliens and children. It's my favorite show! Eric and Marcus didn't know anything about it either, so I pitched it to them in this episode, along with the story of my friend, James, who's had a really weird life. I hope you like it! It's dope as s***!

61: The Shape of Water

The darkly beautiful fantasy worlds of director Guillermo del Toro have captured movie-goers' imaginations for over twenty years. Now, with The Shape of Water, his work has captured the film industry's top honor, the Academy Award for Best Picture, and del Toro himself received the award for Best Director! Holla at ya boi! About damn time, says Andrew. It's also about damn time we hold a duel of the shams with del Toro's work, which itself is an honor of some sort. But do Eric and Marcus have what it takes to make us both swoon with longing and squirm in horror? Listen now to find out!

54: Demon Knight

Hello kiddies! Since our special guest The Crypt Keeper had to reschedule, we decided to write our own blood-n-slime-filled takes on the most excellent 1995 odyssey in filmmaking known as Tales from the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight! In this episode, Marcus and Andrew get hot and heavy, commune with angels and demons, and even get a little pruney. So come on down to the Mission Hotel where we'll serve up two bowls of x-rated Sham Fiction! Seriously, don't let the kids listen to this one.

42: Marcus writes The Iron Giant

Travel back to a simpler time when school desks were your best defense against nuclear weapons, and giants were made of good ol' fashioned iron - well, space iron. Yes, animation fans, this week we're shamming director Brad Bird's breakout classic, The Iron Giant! Marcus is our writer because somehow a movie about robots and teaching them to love snuck past him. It's the perfect match of sham-writer and material! This episode is bound to excite, thrill, and entertain you so much that you'll scream "HOG HUG!" at the top of your lungs! Quit worrying about the Communist menace and listen already, tiger!

40: Eric writes Scream

Happy Halloween, sham-listeners! We've reached our final destination on the Spooky-tober trail! Let's kick this episode off with a question: Do you like scary movies? The killer in this week's property sure does. He'll quiz you on them before he MURDERS you! Jeepers creepers, gang, that means it's time to sham horror-movie-maestro Wes Craven's nineties classic, Scream! Will this week's sham-writer, Eric, be able to sufficiently (and self-referentially) spook us? Will Marcus struggle to mask his dislike of the film? Will Andrew claim to be a movie expert and get most of his references wrong? All these questions (and more) will be answered! BOOGA BOO!

Read the Fiction.

37: Eric writes Suicide Squad

To kick off our Halloween-themed Spooky-tober series, Marcus and Andrew implant an explosive into Eric's head and tell him to go save the world with a team of DC Comics villains you all know and love! We've got everyone! The Joker! Harley Quinn! Deadshot. El Diablo... Slipknot...? Captain Boomerang...?! You know and love all of them, right? We swear we didn't make any up - even if one shares a name with a popular masked heavy metal band from the mid-aughts. Do you know what happens when you order those bad guys to do good? It turns into some sort of... Suicide Squad! Listen, if you dare... BOOGA-BOO!

33: Marcus writes Brick

Cover for us in homeroom! We have some sleuthing to do! Well, Marcus does at least. This week, he's raiding lockers, turning over tables in the cafeteria, and knocking heads together under the bleachers - anything to solve the mystery at the heart of Rian "Star Wars Episode VIII" Johnson's high school film noir breakout, Brick! He just better watch out for any of those long-haired lugs! Especially if they're named Chuck Burns!

From the Vault: Marcus writes There Will Be Blood

The Dueling ShamFiction finale proved too big a beast to tame in only a week's time! In its stead, we've pulled an episode out of the vault! This is a complete test cast from back in 2015 when we were sussing out the show's structure and getting comfortable in front of the mics. We believe you'll find the quality of the content and the audio to be more than sufficient for your listening pleasure! Can Marcus drill deep enough to strike black gold? Find out in his attempt to break into the oil business with this sham of Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood!

12: Marcus writes Howl's Moving Castle

Don't step out into the Wastes without your good hat, a sentient scarecrow companion, or some sort of hairy child-apprentice, because there are witches and wizards out there (and boy do their curses stick!). This week, Marcus relieves some pressure in his steam-powered take on Howl's Moving Castle.
