Episode 90 - Terror Train and Crossover

Everyone loves a big New Year's Eve Party. Even better, this particular party is a costume party. And it takes place on a train! Of course, the presence of Jamie Lee Curtis suggests perhaps this is a Terror Train! It's a barrel of fun and MURDER!

Then in our bottom 100 movie, who better to introduce us to the seedy world of underground street basketball than Whose Line Is It Anyway's Wayne Brady? Bad acting, silly editing and the least threatening underground gambling ring in history - Crossover has it all!

We also have a bit of a discussion on Psycho 2 and characters that struggle with their sanity.

And for those who are wondering, the documentary Gabbie refers to is Screaming in High Heels: The Rise & Fall of the Scream Queen Era.

Episode 89 - Deadly Friend and Space Mutiny

What could be better than having your own self-aware pet robot? It can wander around, protect your car from thieves and even say "BB" all the time! Surely, our hero Paul has it made. On the other hand, this week's film is called Deadly Friend, and it is directed by Wes Craven so I suppose things might take a turn for the worse at some point.

Our bottom 100 movie this week is a blast. When Kalgan and his team of enforcers decide to take over the Southern Sun, it's up to Reb Brown, a floor buffer, stock footage from the 70s BSG and some random dancers to save the day! Truly, Space Mutiny is b-movie paradise.

Episode 88 - The Magic Christian and The Hottie and The Nottie

Our first film this week has Peter Sellers playing Guy Grand, an obscenely wealthy business man. After adopting a random homeless man from the park (Ringo Starr) as his new son, Youngman Grand, the two use their enormous wealth to demonstrate that people will do anything for money and to mess with the upper class. Trevor says hilarity ensues, but Gabbie disagrees. But that's The Magic Christian for you.

Then in our Bottom 100 movie, the much maligned The Hottie and The Nottie, Nate wants to win the girl of his dreams, but first he has to find true love for her best friend. Trevor and Gabbie take a rather controversial stance on this terrible-looking film.

Episode 87 - Queen of the Damned and Going Overboard

Our main film this week is 2002's Queen of the Damned. The vampire Lestat has been asleep for centuries but decides to wake up to become a big rock star! The other vampires don't really appreciate his public declarations of vampirehood though. And then Trevor risks life and limb by saying some not so positive things about the film.

Then for our Bottom 100 movie, it's Adam Sandler's first ever film, 1989's Going Overboard. In this movie, Adam Sandler plays a guy who desperately wants to be funny, but he just can't seem to pull it off. No irony there at all! Also, in a shocking twist, Gabbie develops a crush on the young Mr. Sandler. 

All that and more on this week's episode!

Episode 86 - Infestation and Die Hard Dracula

Don't you hate it when giant bugs knock you unconscious, wrap you in webbing and start feeding off your sweet, sweet nectar? Cooper, the lead character of Infestation sure does! But on the bright side, his dad is played by Ray Wise! So it kind of balances out for Cooper, really.

For our bottom 100 movie, we have a title that combines two storied franchises into a single film. It's Die Hard Dracula! Steven Hillman is bummed about the death of his girlfriend so his parents ship him off to Europe. Too bad that's where Dracula lives! Hilarity ensues. Plus Gabbie gets to try out her Keanu Reeves impression!
