Episode 112 - City Under Siege and The Beast of Yucca Flats.mp3

In main film this week is a cheesy Hong Kong action film called City Under Siege. Sunny's dream is to be the Flying Dagger, just like his father! Sadly, his knife-skills are somewhat lacking so he's forced to work as a clown in his uncle's circus. But when Sunny and some of the other circus performers get dosed with some leftover experimental chemicals from World War 2, suddenly everyone's got super powers (and some less desirable side-effects). While the others use their new found powers to embark on a life of crime, Sunny realizes he can finally be the hero he's always wanted to be. 

Then in our bottom 100 film, it's The Beast of Yucca Flats. Tor Johnson is an defecting Russian scientist but while escaping some Kremlin baddies he ends up being accidentally exposed to a nuclear blast. Sadly he doesn't really get any cool superpowers (unless you count mild special effects make-up as a power) but it does turn him into a mindless beast so that's something. This movie also features some of the best narration known to humanity. Truly a film for the ages.
