This week on the show we have a bit of an unintentional theme going as we have two different movies where animals are mixed with horrifying results. 

First up, it's 1993's Man's Best Friend starring Ally Sheedy, Lance Henriksen and an adorable dog named Max. Max is kind of like the Littlest Hobo in that he's a genetically-engineered super dog. Unlike the Littlest Hobo though Max has a slight tendency to brutally murder those who wrong him in some way. 

Then for our bottom 100 film, we have 1960's Horrors of Spider Island. A whole cast of incredibly useless people are marooned on a desert island. When one of those people is bitten by a giant spider he, of course, gains spider powers. But instead of being able to shoot webs and fly around New York City, he just gets a bad make-up job and some cheesy hands that only appear in close-up shots. 

So come join Trevor and Gabbie as they learn all about the dangers of mixing your animals!

Sure, Patrick Stewart has had lots of success exploring the galaxy and thwarting the fiendish plots of Magneto, but have you ever wondered about what his track record for taking groups of school children hostage is? Well, as luck would have it, this week's film, Masterminds, will explore that very subject! Gabbie will be talking about this definite high point in Patrick Stewart's career.

Then it's off to the wild outlands of Nova Scotia as Trevor answers another burning question - Can Dennis Rodman act? The answer may suprise you!* Trevor will find all about Dennis Rodman's acting ability as well as his super spy skills as he talks about this week's bottom 100 film, Simon Sez

*Surprise not guaranteed

Summer time sure is hot, isn't it? So what could be better than some winter and/or cold themed films to help you beat the heat? First up, we've got 7 Below. Unfortuantely, despite what you might think, the title isn't a temperature reference so such much for that idea. But it does have Val Kilmer, Ving Rhames and a bunch of other somewhat less well known actors in a haunted house during a big-ass thunderstorm so that's not so bad is it? Or maybe it is? You'll have to listen to the episode to find out.

Well, the next movie is our bottom 100 movie, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. With Santa in the title, you know you are in for some cold weather. And there are a couple scenes set in the North Pole. That's cold. As is the vacuum of space. The majority of the movie takes place on Mars though which isn't really known for it's cold weather. But we do get to see the martians learn about the magic of Santa. And that's pretty keen too, right? Right? 

Fine, I'll be in my trailer.

This week Trevor and Gabbie thought they would take a nice stroll through the forest. The only problem is, it turns out this forest is a Forest of Death! This 2007 Hong Kong film has telepathic trees and a rash of suicides but (fortunately) is nowhere near as bad as The Happening.

You can check out a trailer for the film here:

Then for the Bottom 100 film this week, the gang takes a look at the inaccurately named Seven Mummies from 2006. This horror film has appearances by the likes of Danny Trejo and Billy Drago so can it really be all that bad? You might be surprised to find out that Trevor and Gabbie disagree on that one (Bonus point to our listeners if you can guess who comes down on which side of the arguments).

This week Trevor and Gabbie discuss a much anticipated film, Troll 2! Really, there is no way that mere mortals can hope to summarize the awesomeness that is Troll 2, but Trevor and Gabbie give it their best shot. 

And what better way to further the Troll 2 love than with a discussion of the Michael Stephenson's documentary about the iconic film, Best Worst Movie

So make yourself a double-decker balogna sandwich and prepare for this week's episode!

This week, our feature film is 2010's White Wall. It's an interesting blend of post-apocalyptic sci-fi, action and even some noir. Both Trevor and Gabbie agree the trailer really gets you interested in the movie. But does a good trailer equal a good movie? The crew has mixed opinions on that one.

We also continue on our IMDB Bottom 100 trek with #84 on the list, In the Mix. It's a romantic comedy/crime drama starring Usher as a DJ who ends up working as a bodyguard. Is it as bad as that description would have you believe? Or is this another case of an undeserving movie getting a spot on the bottom 100 list? 

Also, will Trevor and Gabbie actually agree on something? Who knows?

A bit of a different show this week as Trevor and Gabbie give a recap of the 6th Shock and Awe that recently took place.

What's Shock and Awe you might ask? It's an all night movie marathon featuring a collection of obscure films (mostly from the 70s and 80s) and headlined by a more promiently known cult classic. It's also a hell of a lot of fun.

To hear all about the latest Shock and Awe event, just download this week's episode!

Sure Godzilla is all well and good, but is he a match for SpaceGodzilla? I don't think Godzilla Junior will be much help. And to make matters worse, Mothra is apparently on space vacation or something and can't be bothered to defend the Earth. At least Mothra sends along those weird twins to give advice to the psychic lady. Oh, yes, did we mention, there's also a telepathy sub-plot in this one. 

Also on the show, Trevor tackles #85 on the Bottom 100 IMDB list, 3 Ninjas - High Noon at Mega Mountain. What happens when you teach a bunch of kids martial arts and then make them fight evil ninjas lead by Loni Anderson and Jim Varney (yes, that Jim Varney)? Will even an assist from Hulk Hogan be enough to stop the Ernest now that he's gone to the dark side?

Have you ever wondered if perhaps the true key to human intelligence was not within the human brain but within the forehead? Finally there is a movie that tackles this controversial topic. Yes, from the people who brought you The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, it's Trail of the Screaming Forehead

Another question you may well have spent many an hour pondering, "Can chimps be taught to play baseball?" Fortunately, our bottom 100 movie, Ed, has the answer. 

For in-depth discussion on these topics and the implications of their answers, check out this week's episode!

This week, Trevor and Gabbie tackle that most sacred of high school traditions, the prom night killing spree. Will they be impressed by Mary Lou's resourcefulness and innovative strategies for regaining her title? Or will they throw this on to the pile of forgettable 80s slashers? 

Also, for this week's Bottom 100, Trevor and Gabbie watch a German bio-drama about the rapper, Bushido called Zeiten ändern Dich. Sure, neither of there are no subtitles and neither of them speak German but they aren't about to let little details like that get in the way of their mission to review every bottom 100 film. 

So be sure to check out this week's episode or you will be the aligator they will be seeing later.
