IT'S A CHRISTMAS EVE BONUS EPISODE YAAAAAY! Bad Movie Sunday recently watched this movie and had recommended we do the same to fulfill out yuletide obligations of bad so we went ahead and watched the 1989 holidy horror movie Elves. Episode 100 is just aroud the corner so please reach out to us with thoughts of what to watch or even some fun stuff to read on the air. @2ndclasspodcast on Twitter, SecondClassCinema on instagram and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
DON'T TELL GRANDMA SHE'S A REINDEER! Or something like that. It's Christmas time in the city and we watched Tom's pick this week, the 2000 animated special Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer. History repeated itself with how we got to this movie and we're pretty glad it did I think.
A CLOWNHOUSE?! Yes it's the 1989 horror movie Clownhouse and WE watched it! It's of no surprise that this movie was chosen by Brittany as we are all aware for her prediliction towards 1989. Attempting to put aside the backstory to this movie whilst having it remain a fact throughout the viewieing experience was a bit tough but I think we managed it pretty well. Was this movie worth the watch?
After a month long (and unplanned) break, we are finally back! This episode was recorded with the intention of getting it into October but here we are on Thanksgiving day instead. OH WELL! Erik picked the Japanese cyber-punk, horror movie Tetsuo: The Iron Man. Good pal Jimmy came on to help us discuss this very eccentric, low-budget shocker.
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?
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.
This week we were joined by a first-time guest- our friend and professional funny-lady, Liz Moniz. We even let her pick the flick! Liz had told us about this really strange movie she had watched with her Dad when she was a kid, a movie about a possessed refrigerator that eats people… So naturally we wanted to watch this ASAP. It took two years, but we done did it!
This movie follows a couple, Eileen and Steve, who have just relocated to NYC from Ohio, presumably in pursuit of Eileen’s dream of becoming a Broadway star. The two get a deal on a shabby apartment and quickly set about turning it into a home. Soon thereafter, the couple is visited by a seemingly crazy neighbor who warns them about previous tenants disappearing and other strange goings-on in the apartment. It’s not long before Eileen and Steve are plagued by nightmares and visions involving the refrigerator, and soon people they know begin disappearing as well. Who can quell the refrigerators demonic hunger?!
We cover a plethora of relevant topics in this week’s discussion- including gourmet cheeses, mother/daughter sexual tension, the lack of gore, and the least believable thing about this movie: $200 a month rent.
This week's was Erik's pick and he went back to basics. We watched the 1986 karate movie No Retreat No Surrender. Holy mackerel. Erik has been pretty adamant about JCVD as of late so he was very excited to get to this and now we're ALL excited. We've also cross-references some lists and wouldn't you have it Bad Movie Sunday (@BadMovieSunday1) also watched this one! Enjoy!
It was Tom's pick this week and guess what happened? He picked a movie he got at a flea market! That movie happened to be the 1989 action movie One Man Force. Special guest Jimmy comes on to discuss this movie and also helps us rank restaurant chains. Do not be fooled by the beginning of the episode, we did not watch Holy Mountain. Thank god we didn't.
On this week's episode we watch a movie submitted to us by a friend of the show and fellow podcaster Dave Bullis (@Dave_Bullis)! He stumbled across the 1988 horror-ish, thrill ride that is Uninvited and let us know that we should probably watch it. We're kind of glad we did. Well, some of us were happier than others. I guess you'll just have to listen to hear what we think about a movie with a MUTANT DEMON CAT!!!
