Episode 85 - Remains and Keloglan vs. The Black Prince

This week on the show we kick things off with 2011's Remains. In some ways, it's your typical post-apocalyptic zombie movie, but it also brings along a few interesting twists on the typical format (along with some not so interesting moments).

Then, things really get going with our bottom 100 movie, Keloglan vs. The Black Prince. Have you ever found yourself thinking, "Boy, I really love those horrible movie movies (like Scary Movie and Epic Movie) but I wonder what it would be like if there was a Turkish version. And what if it mainly dealt with fairy tales?" If you have thought that, you are a very strange individual. On the bright side, but I am happy to say that Keloglan vs. The Black Prince has got you covered. And it's not nearly as terrible as you might think!

Episode 84 - Children of the Corn and The Maize

It's a good old-fashioned corn boil at Failing Grade headquarters this week. First up, we have the sort of cult hit, Children of the Corn. In this film Peter Horton and Linda Hamilton wander into a very bad part of Nebraska that is controlled by evil, evil children.

Then for the bottom 100 film, we have The Maize: The Movie. It's called The Maize because it takes place in a corn maze and another word for corn is maize. And when a horrible pun is the best thing a movie has going for it, you know you are going to be in for a world of pain. And corn. But mostly pain.

Episode 83 - Dawn of the Dragonslayer and The Blade Master

This week, we kick things off with the fantasy adventure, Dawn of the Dragonslayer. After Will and his father learn a valuable lesson about not stealing dragon eggs, Will gets to go live with a cantankerous baron and his rambunctious daughter. Wackiness ensues! We also learn way too much about Gabbie's leprechaun fetish.

Then it's time for our bottom 100 movie, Ator the Invincible 2/Cave Dwellers/The Blade Master/etc. In this film, Ator the world's greatest hero/scientist/guy in a loincloth, is tasked with defeating the evil Zor and his crazy hat. Fortunately, Ator has his trusty sidekick, Thong, a couple big-ass swords, a freaking hang glider and the most important weapon of all... science!

Episode 82 - Harper's Island

This week, we weren't able to record an episode. Fortunately, we had a back-up episode on hand for your listening pleasure.

And really what could more pleasurable than going to a peaceful little island to see old friends get married? Okay, sure, there may be a bit of a high body count, but really what's a wedding without a few complications?

Join Gabbie and Trevor as they discuss the under-appreciated and under-watched horror series, Harper's Island.
