It's our one year anniversary! Woo. To make this episode extra special to us, we decided to watch the 1997 movie The Necro Files. Why is that special you ask? Our movie tonight was directed by Matt Jaissle, also the director of the first movie we covered Back From Hell (if you decide to listen be warned, it's rough)! We were lucky enough to interview Matt Jaissle about his work and you can find that episode here. Tom purchased this movie and waited for the right time to watch it and I think we found it.
Keeping on with Horror Movie Month, we watched something a little more traditional in style, kind of. Tom picked the 1987 sci-fi/horror movie The Kindred! This was an interesting watch for us because we really had no clue what we were getting in to. Brandon came on to help us discuss this movie, and this is one of his personal favorites. He even brought an old Fangoria magazine that had an article about this movie. Where do you think this movie will measure on the Fuck scale?
OCTOBER IS HERE!!! That means horror movies and so this is Horror Movie Month... OBVIOUSLY! Tom picked the 2012 Irish slasher/clown movie Stitches to kick it off. We all pretty much went in to one side on this rating. What side do you think our ratings fell on? Listen up as Tyler comes on and helps us discuss this insane clown picture.
God Bless Tiny Tim! Seriously, because if it weren't for him this movie would have been more unbearable than it already was. That movie was the 1987 horror movie "Blood Harvest". This was Tom's pick because it missed getting watched "too many times". Yikes. Mr. Tim is a creepy clown in a small town where people are being hung upside down and... killed! Sounds promising right? Find out how we all rate this movie on this week's discussion!
On this week's episode we watch Tom's pick, the 1987 action movie Hollywood Cop. This movie was directed by Amir Shervan, the same person that made Samurai Cop! You can expect a similar level of grime and crime in this awkwardly raunchy spectacle. This movie came out 4 years prior to Samurai Cop so we draw the parallels between the two and see how Amir Shervan differed from one movie to the other... If at all. IT'S NOT AWESOME!
It's still Kid's Movie Months here and Tom chose the 1992 movie Sidekicks starring Johnathan Brandis and Chuck Norris!!! YAAAAAY!!! Special guest Eric comes on to help us with this childhood gem. Only by listening will you know how great Joe Piscopo really was in this movie.
In this episode Tom picked the 1978 blaxploitation revenge film Death Force. AKA Vengeance is Mine. Alternate title: Fighting Mad. Ratings were all over the place and almost entirely ruined by one specific moment of the movie. If you've seen this film you might know what it is. All of that and more as we discuss successes, failures and risks of this samurai vengeance story!
Tom selects this week's topic of discussion with a movie from his childhood, 1993's Only The Strong starring none other than Mark Dacascos. We find out that capoeira is a pretty cool thing to watch, or at least we hear Tom defend this movie due to his bias growing up with it. Either way we still cover it's successes, failures and enjoy a nice ratings session. We also have first time guest Tyler on to help us break this movie down.
Successes, failures, favorite parts, ratings, ALL of these happen on Tom's selection this week. We watched the 1984 Filipino, action/martial arts movie, Death Raiders off of the Mercs DVD pack put out by VideoAsia. Special guest Aaron helps us put this movie in perspective and after some tequila, we definitely needed it.
