Episode 81 - Freak Dance and Boggy Creek 2: And the Legend Continues

We go a bit outside of our usual wheelhouse this week with 2010's Freak Dance. Cocolonia has wanted to be a dancer all her life and when she finally gets her chance and joins Fantaseez, the nefarious building inspector general shows up and threatens to shut them down! Will they be able to pay off the fines in time? There just so happens to be a big dance contest coming up! Unfortunately, Dazzle and his army of private dancers could stand in their way!

Then for our bottom 100 movie, it's Boggy Creek 2: And the Legend Continues. Professor Lockhart takes two of his best students, and one of their friends, with him to Boggy Creek in an effort to find the Boggy Creek Creature. That's right, it's a Bigfoot movie! Will the Professor succeed in his quest? Or will they have to make due with meeting creepy Old Man Crenshaw?

Also, there's some talk about the Evil Dead remake!

Episode 80 - Mom and Dad Save the World and the Prince of Space

This week it's all about unusual heroes battling in outer space for the amusement of children! First up, we have Mom and Dad Save the World featuring the likes of Jeffrey Jones, Jon Lovitz and even Eric Idle. With a collection of actors like that, surely this will be a great film! Or will it?

Then in our bottom 100 film, the people of Krankor want to take over the Earth. Fortunately, the Prince of Space is on hand to stop them!

Episode 79 - The Birds and Birdemic

What is the biggest threat facing mankind? Global warming? Nuclear war? Zombie apocalypse? Bah, mere child's play. In this week's episode we learn that the true threat to mankind is those damned birds! (though maybe global warming has something to do with it? Also, spruce bark beetles!)

So grab the nearest coat hangar and join Trevor and Gabbie as they discuss the Alfred Hitchcock classic, The Birds, and the James Nguyen 'classic,' Birdemic: Shock and Terror.

Episode 78 - Dead and Breakfast and Pumaman.mp3

The horror comedy is always a bit of a tricky balancing act. Very few movies manage to strike the right balance of horror and comedy and it's quite often that the movie will fail to be all that scary or all that funny. Dead & Breakfast is a little light on the horror (though it does have some nice practical effects gore) but it is pretty funny and its got an a interesting voodoo-like take on its zombies that makes for good watching. Trevor and Gabbie will tell you all about it.

Then, with our bottom 100 movie, we learn that being a Pumaman gives you all sorts of puma-like powers. Powers like super strength, seeing in the dark, a danger sense, entering a pseudo-death state, flying through the air and teleporting to any location you have been to before. Truly the puma is one of nature's greatest creatures. This week, we will tell you all about the wonderfully awful Pumaman featuring none other than Donald Pleasence!
