Skull-Face Island Movie Podcast presented by Geeks Of Doom
Episode 01: The Batman
In the year 1991, US Flight 1313 soared unknowing to its death. As the vessel sank into the ocean’s depths, three boys washed ashore on Skull-Face Island…
Located at approximately 12Â°S 78Â°E “” somewhere off the coast of Sumatra “” is Skull-Face Island. This sub-continental land mass was believed to be nothing more than a myth, until a scientific expedition, funded by the Department of Heuristics and Research on Material Applications, discovered the tropical isle in the late ’70s.
The goal of the expedition was to establish a communications station on a remote island. Using sonar and satellite technologies, this communications array would allow the scientists to communicate with their base of operations located another remote, uncharted island. To their surprise, Skull-Face Island was filled to the brim with superstitious natives, prehistoric creatures, monstrous primates and way-too-big insects. I’m talking millipedes the size of IKEA couches, motherfucker – you don’t mess with that.
Luckily, the scientific expedition was equipped with flamethrowers and M41A Pulse Rifles to combat the fucking-huge insects and bad-ass dinosaurs as they hauled their highly-advanced technology over the ancient terrain.With their machetes the team hacked and slashed their way through jungle, swinging across pits and chasms until they reached the tip-top of the island’s highest summit, Snake Mountain.
There they constructed a wood-frame bungalow with a big-ass satellite dish on the roof, allowing scientists to transmit cryptic radio broadcasts to the outside world. That was the “˜80s, when a group of scientists could go to an island in the shape of a skull and fight couch-sized millipedes without fear of retaliation. Something happened to the scientists up there on Snake Mountain, and while we can’t say for certain, we’re pretty sure they got eaten by some goddamn dinosaurs or that gigantic gorilla that shows up to arbitrarily start shit.
That’s all we know. We’ve been stranded on this godforsaken island for twenty now, just the three of us: Tim Grant, David Allen, and myself – Adam Frazier aka FamousMonster. Well, not just the three of us, I mean there are still plenty of natives and prehistoric creatures and way-too-big insects to fight off while you’re shakin’ mango trees for sustenance – but you know what I mean.
We climbed to the top of Snake Mountain and found the old communications array. Here’s the weird thing, it still works. Not only does it work, this thing is like Netflix, Amazon Instant, Video on Demand and Apple TV combined – it’s got all the latest movies and television shows. We haven’t even bothered sending out a distress signal yet because we’re re-watching The Wire right now…
As soon as Tim figures out how to make the microphones work, we’re going to start transmitting a radio broadcast in hopes that someone out there hears us. We’re just three nerds in a mysterious, long-forgotten place. We’re Geeks of Doom, marooned on Skull-Face Island.
