It’s September, which means it’s even closer to Halloween, but it also means back to school for a lot of the kiddies. So we thought we’d take a look at the film that started it all for Brad Pitt, Cutting Class (1989), but before we go back to school, we get to go to Cheerleader Camp (1988)—but we start with our thoughts on the new IT movie as well as the filmography of the late great Tobe Hooper. He made a lot of good horror flicks and they’re all worthy of discussion. Plus music by W.A.S.P., Murderock, Oingo Boingo, Faith No More and Nirvana.
In our 2nd and final half of Kick Ass August we go back to the 80’s and check out the Ninja trilogy—what is the ninja trilogy? Well, we're not sure we even know, but the movies are: Enter the Ninja (1981), Revenge of the Ninja (1983) and Ninja 3: The Domination (1984). Grab a sixer of V8 juice and enjoy!
Kick Ass August is now in effect! That’s right, we’re diving into the action movie genre for all of August—but specifically, martial arts driven flicks. We needed a bit of a palate cleanser before we go into full horror mode in September and October. We’re starting of with 2 kick ass classics indeed: Kickboxer (1989) starring Jean Claude Van Damme and Rumble in the Bronx (1995) starring the phenomenal Jackie Chan. Plus music by: Don Henley, A Tribe Called Quest, KISS and Dean Martin.
Our 4th annual Summer Sextravaganza comes to a close this episode, but we’re leaving with a bang…or is that a buzz? Today we’re taking a look at the Slumber Party Massacre trilogy! Staring with the orginal from 1982, the sequel from ’87 and part 3 from 1990. It’s a rather fun slasher franchise that just happens to be directed and written by women! Plus music by: Andrew W.K., Quiet Riot, Nirvana, Alice Cooper and DMX.
Our 4th annual Summer Sextravaganza continues this episode with a look at two naughty versions of children's stories. First, the late-night Skin-O-Max classic, Cinderella (1977) and Fairy Tales (1978), a sort of softcore-live action-Shrek. Also, we reflect on the filmography of the late George A. Romero and his incredibly influential body of work. Plus music by: Danger Danger, Cinderella, 2 Live Crew, Goblin and the Misfits. ROMERO LIVES!
Welcome to our 4th annual Summer Sextravaganza where we honor all things smutty in film. This year we have quite the line-up. We’re starting things off with some lighter fair, because we don’t want to blow our wads too soon. This episode we’re talking a look at Weird Science (1985) and The Last American Virgin (1982). Plus music by The Gleaming Spires, Oingo Boingo, The Cars and K.C. and the Sunshine Band.
Our stay on Elm street comes to an end this episode. So far we’ve taken a look at part through 6, but now we’ve come to the last three films in the ANOES franchise. First, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994), the remake from 2010, then we’ll be dipping into the archives for our review of 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason from when we did the Friday the 13th franchise. Will the end of the franchise end like a dream or a nightmare, tune in and find out. Plus music by Crowded House, Alice Cooper, The Everly Brothers, Kiss, and Judas Priest.
