Episode 98 - Critters 2 and The Creeping Terror

This week on Failing Grade we take another trip to Grover's Mills to revisit those charming little balls of death, the Crites, in Critters 2: The Main Course. Brad's family has all moved away (and out of the franchise) but conveniently Brad's in town to visit his grandmother and wouldn't you know it, the critters are back! Mayhem ensues. 

After that, it's time for the most terrifying movie ever made about a killer carpet from outer space, The Creeping Terror. If you have ever wondered what it would be like to have a narrator forced to try and carry an entire movie, this is the film for you!

Episode 97 - City of the Dead and Who's Your Caddy?

We kick things off this week with 1960's City of the Dead. In this movie we learn, yet again, why you should never, ever trust Christopher Lee. He's Nan Barlowe's professor and when she's looking to really get some hands on experience for her term paper in witchcraft, he just happens to know the perfect place she should go. What could possibly go wrong? 

The in the bottom 100 film, poor Jeffery Jones. It's bad enough that he kept getting one-upped by Ferris Bueller, but now he's stuck as the villain of Who's Your Caddy? Christopher "C-Note" Hawkins is anxious to join an exclusive golf club, but unfortunately they're all a bunch of racists. On the bright side, he has Uncle Phil in his corner!

Episode 96 - Critters and Sura

Gremlins sure was great, wasn't it? So great that it seems like everyone just couldn't wait to get their own Gremlin-knock off out in to the market. Some of these were pretty good, and some not so much. This week, we're taking a look at Critters. But which category does it fall in to? You'll have to listen to find out!

Then in our bottom 100 movie, we go back to watch what is probably the longest movie on the list, Sura. Sura just wants to help his village, but when a corrupt government official plots to steal their land, things get serious! Fortunately Sura is basically a superhero so the bad guys aren't going to have an easy time of things!

Join us we explore these films!

Episode 95 - Children of the Corn II and Girl in Gold Boots

Holy bananas! It's time for a new episode of Failing Grade!

On this week's show we continue the journey through the Children of the Corn franchise with the not-so-aptly named, Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice. After the grisly murders of the first movie are uncovered a neighboring town decides to take in the surviving children. The children decide to repay this kindness with murder!

For our bottom 100 movie, we have Girl in Gold Boots from 1968. Three strangers, Buzz, Michelle and Critter cross paths and decide to head to LA together so Michelle can try to make it as a dancer. It's like Showgirls but without the nudity!

Truly this week's show is one for the ages!
