Episode 100 - Horror House on Highway Five (1985)

February 28, 2017

Hot damn y'all, it's our 100th Episode!

Thanks to all of you who have somehow stumbled upon us and continue to listen to our ridiculous banter. We’re so happy other people love these misfit films and want to celebrate them the same way we do- in a mockingly critical and often obnoxious manner. Especially when we’ve dropped off the earth for a while due to life, and you all still hit us up with new film recommendations and discussions on older episodes. We know we've been gone for a while, thanks for not making it weird. Also, thanks to all our friends, on this episode and every other, who are always down to watch bad movies and share their love and knowledge of trash cinema with us. We love you all.

For this super special occasion, we were joined by not one, not, two, not, three, but FOUR friends from previous episodes who came over to watch this flick with us… and for the first time ever we recorded a commentary during the movie! Tyler, Fallon, Gray and Aaron all came by to watch the newly restored  Horror House on Highway Five, which we recently purchased from Vinegar Sydrome (you can purchase it here if you want to watch along with the commentary, or just in general: https://vinegarsyndrome.com/shop/horror-house-on-highway-5/ ). It was interesting, to say the least.

The synopsis of this film would tell you that it's about a crazed psychopath who stalks the streets, wearing a Richard Nixon mask, murdering helpless victims… but is it really? We had a lot of fun trying to break down the various threads of story in this film, which weren't always coherent… But hey, this is the second movie we watched recently that’s featured random Nazi -occult subplots! Also, ferns!

Enjoy!

Episode 96 - Blood Games (1990)

October 18, 2016

Happy October!

Tom picked the flick this week, and he thought the premise of a women’s baseball team lost in the woods with deranged killers sounded like a real home run (I’m sorry)… Our friend Aaron stopped by the studio to help us dissect this bloody baseball debacle.

When a group of drunken rednecks lose a baseball game to a traveling team of buxom babes, they are incensed, but get over it rather quickly. That is all short-lived however, when one of their own, Mino, tries to stiff the baseball coach out of $1000 he owes him over a bet on the game. Things escalate quickly, resulting in the accidental death of Mino’s son, Roy. Mino resorts to full-on Vietnam flashback mode, calling for the girls deaths, and offering $1000 per head. The race is on, can Babe and the Ball Girls escape this hillbilly nightmare unscathed, or are they all doomed to die in the woods?

In this episode we discuss our satisfaction with the death scenes, ponder the inexplicable decision made by Mino to pay $9,000 for 9 dead women instead of the paltry $1K he originally owed, and we cover just a ton of straight up grab-ass.

Unfortunately, this was not quite the splatter-fest we were hoping to grace you all with for October. But how did it measure up in every other regard?


Listen up!

Episode 95 - Don’t Go In The House (1980)

October 12, 2016

IT'S OUR 100th POST!! Don't worry we'll have something better for our official 100th episode. It's Brittany's pick this week and keeping in the horror fashion she chose to watch the 1980 horror/thriller Don't Go In The House. Or The Burning. But not The (GOOD) Burning. Tyler joined us for this one and it was certainly a change of pace for movies we typically watch with him. We were as disappointed as he was that Hulk Hogan wasn't in this.

Episode 90 - The Guest (2014)

September 8, 2016

It was Brittany's pick and she did us all a favor and broke our spell of watching movies that are of sub-par quality (even though her last pick was the Chuck Norris movies Forest Warrior)! Yay?  Either way, she picked the 2014 thriller/action movie The Guest! We had our OWN very special guest on the show, Fallon! She was actually the one who had recommended this movie to us to watch so Brittany only felt it appropriate to have her watch it with us. Fortunately for us our guest was not as intense as THE Guest. Listen up!

Episode 80 - Housebound (2014)

May 10, 2016

Hellooooo Citizens!


We're officially off that hellish ride through space, and onto bigger and better things. It was Brittany's turn to pick the flick this week, and feeling as though we deserved to treat ourselves, she selected 2014’s Housebound- a thriller/comedy straight out of New Zealand. Having heard nothing but great things about this movie, it felt a little indulgent… But hey, treat yo’self, amiright?


Housebound follows Kylie, a young delinquent who is sentenced to house arrest under her mother’s care after being arrested for breaking into an ATM. While stuck with her mother and stepfather, Kylie learns some disturbing things about their family home. Like how a teenage girl was murdered there decades ago… Back when their house was used as a mental institution. NBD. As Kylie becomes obsessed with solving the murder, things around the house just get weirder and weirder. Can she solve it before her and her mother become the killer’s next victims?


We've had a pretty good track record with movies made in New Zealand, so we discuss how this measures up to some of our favorites!

Episode 68 - INhuMANity (2001)

February 8, 2016

This episode was a close call folks.  It was Tom's pick this week and he almost had to do this whole episode by himself. We watched the crimer/thriller movie "Inhumanity" from 2001 that Tom procured at the Bargain City Galleria! What's unfortunate about this situation is, it's typically best if the listener has watched the movie before listening OR that there's some interest in the movie at all before listening to the episode, and sadly neither are the case for this particular endeavor. I honestly don't know how you'd get a copy because it sure isn't worth the investment, nor would I assume anyone outside of the filmmakers family has seen this movie. But gosh darnit if it isn't our job to watch and immediately discuss. So we did.

Episode 54 - May (2002) and The Loved Ones (2009)

October 27, 2015

We are keeping up with Horror Movie Month by watching a DOOOOOUBLE FEEEEEATURE! We watched May and The Loved Ones, a couple of SCAAAAARY LAAAAAADIES!  We had b-movie professional and our friend Fallon come on to help us dive deep in to the insanity of a woman.

Episode 25 - Unfriended (2015)

April 19, 2015

As a group we decided enough was enough and we were going to see something new to review for once, so we ventured out to see teen cyber-thriller Unfriended. After seeing the trailer before It Follows, it seemed like it was going to be at least a semi-good time. Was it?  How do you think it measured up during our Fucking Ratings?

Episode 22 - Bitter Feast (2010)

March 30, 2015

Brittany's selection, Bitter Feast is a 2010 movie in which a celebrity chef captures a food blogger and tortures him whilst also making him perform food challenges.  Obviously we watched this one, but the outcome was quite surprising.
