Ep.181: Halloween Night (2006)

Halloween Night 2006.jpg

This week we're taking on the 2006 slasher "Halloween Night". This indie movie from Asylum Films is just another run of the mill cookie cutter, paint by numbers slasher that follows the same old formula that we've seen hundreds of times before. It doesn't reinvent the wheel or break any new ground, but it has really great kills, solid gore and practical effects, pretty decent acting and a boob count that is through the roof.

Ep.178: Zombie Holocaust aka Dr. Butcher M.D.

You got your cannibal movie in my zombie movie. You got your zombie movie in my cannibal movie! This week we're taking on the Italian gore movie "Zombie Holocaust" aka "Dr. Butcher M.D.". This hot mess of a gore film suffers from a major identity crisis not knowing if it wants to be a gory cannibal movie or a crappy nonsensical zombie movie. The only thing the makers of this mess seemed to care about is the gore and shock value. Which we will say for the time they succeeded at, but that's pretty it.

Ep.177: Ghoulies 3: Ghoulies Go to College

Finally, our lost episode has been found, fixed and is ready to go. So check out our take on "Ghoulies 3: Ghoulies go to College".  We originally recorded this back in the spring of 2017 with special guest Paul Cochran, who would later go on to co-host the "Pop Culture Intervention Podcast". There may be some audio issues with this episode due to the issues we had with the new audio recording software we used on this episode, but other wise sit back and enjoy our long lost episode.

Ep.176: Miner's Massacre aka Curse of the 49er

Miner's Massacre.jpg

This week we're grabbing our pickaxes and going gold hunting! Will we strike gold with the listener suggested "Miner's Massacre" aka "Curse of the 49er" or will we hit a turd vein? This early 2000's slasher features all the usual suspects of a bad horror movie but yet also features some great actors in confusingly small and meaningless roles, a killer with a confusing backstory, and more explosions than blood.

P.S.- Please forgive the echoing effect that comes up near the end of the episode

Ep.173: Sharkenstein

It's shark week again, so that means its once again time to chum the waters for another terrible shark movie. This year we fished up, cooked, and sank our teeth into the 2016 "Sharkenstein". A movie so unbelievably bad that it's nearly beyond words. Featuring bad acting, horrendous CGI, tons of stock footage, and a terrible puppet shark that looks more like an ugly blue burrito with the face of an old man than a shark.

Ep.172: Friday the 13th Part 7: The New Blood (watch along)

Friday the 13th part 7.jpg

This week we invite you to join us as we watch one of our favorite installments in the "Friday the 13th " series, "Friday the 13th Part 7:The New Blood". This particular installment holds a special place in our hearts and was our favorite way back when we were just little Moongoons. So, watch along with us as we pop some beers, crack some jokes and take a trip back to Crystal Lake.

Ep.171: Bedeviled

This week's listener suggested movie is a cautionary tale about over dependence to cell phones and a killer "Siri" like app. We watched "Bedeviled", a 2016 techno-paranormal horror movie featuring run of the mill high school kids who are clearly not high school kids, techno-babble, practically no kills, no gore, and so much blue lighting that Eiffel 65 would loose their God Damn minds.

Ep.170: Ice Cream Man

The dog days of summer are here and with that comes the 4th of July, so that means fireworks and ice cream. So in honor of that  this week we're scooping up the "Ice Cream Man". This 1995 straight to video horror flick stars Clint Howard, as the creepy Ice Cream Man and he crushes it. Also, starring Jan Michael Vincent (who clearly doesn't want to be in the movie), Lee Major Jr., a not fat, fat kid and the MILF kid from the "American Pie" movies. It also features ridiculous sight gag props, virtually no gore, and bikes equipped with missile launchers.

Ep.169: Lake Fear 3

Lake Fear 3.jpg

Well Moongoons, this week's movie "Lake Fear 3" just may be one of the all time worst movies ever made. It's so bad that I don't even know what to say about it. It has no plot or story, barely any characters; the ones we do get have zero real personality or development, there is practically no meaningful dialogue. The lighting is atrocious and the sound design is even worse! There is also no sense to be made from this catastrophe of a movie, and for a movie called "Lake Fear 3" there's also no LAKE! But hey at least about 90% of the movie is shot in slow motion!

Ep.168: The Devil's Rain

The Devil's Rain.jpg

This week’s offering to the horror God’s is “The Devil’s Rain”. This obscure cult classic from 19975 is one crazy and confusing ride. Lead by an insane all star cast this whack-a-doodle movie features a confusing and head scratching plot with no exposition, dozens of melting Satan worshipping occultists who bleed colored ice cream, lots of bad decisions, and a pre-Scientology pre Xenu John Travolta. AND THAT’S NOT ALL! It also stars a half man half goat Ernest Borgnine and a topless screaming William Shatner and both men absolutely crush it!

Ep.166: Slumber Party Massacre 2

Slumber Party Massacre 2.jpg

This week we’re going slumming with “Slumber Party Massacre 2”, a sequel so bad that its nearly unfathomable. A horror movie that is more musical and product placement commercial than an actual horror movie. It features loads of terrible music, a leather clad guitar drill welding greaser killer, and more dream sequences than a “Nightmare on Elm St.” movie and “Inception” combined. In the end it left us thinking what the hell did we just watch and more importantly just…why?

Ep.165: Blood Hook

Blood Hook.jpg

This week we’re going on a little fishing trip, we’re baiting our hooks and fishing up “Blood Hook”. This obscure mid-80’s horror movie is certainly one of a kind, in that it may be the only fishing themed slasher movie ever made. This unique Troma distributed movie features lots of fishing, muskies, giant killer fishing lures, angry cicadas, music theory, and insane rants. However its not all bad, it also has surprisingly good acting, the world’s worst expertise obsessed mother, and an ending sequence that is just pure insane ridiculousness.

Ep.164: The Last Slumber Party

Last Slumber Party.jpg

This week we’re slipping into our PJs, popping some popcorn, calling over all our girlfriends, and pillow fighting with “The Last Slumber Party”. This 1988 straight to video slasher just may be the worst movie ever made and nearly broke Marshall. This fascinatingly terrible movie features an entire cast that seems to be doped up on Xanax, horrendously bad to nonexistent blood effects, atrocious and robotic acting and writing, and a killer that defies all the laws of science and nature and always seems to look like he just snorted a line of meth. If you think you can handle this monstrosity think again, you are not prepared.

Ep.163: Prom Night 2, Hello Mary Lou

Prom Night 2.jpg

It’s Prom season again, so that means we’re dressing to the nines, renting a limo and saving the last dance for “Hello Mary Lou, Prom Night 2”. This 1987 sequel about the revenge seeking killer spirit of a dead Prom Queen is one part “Carrie” one part “Nightmare on Elm Street” with a pinch of “The Exorcist”. This surprisingly fun film features awesome special effects, great kills, mundane items that explode, and the world’s worst school principal. A whoop bop a lou bop, a whoop bam boom!

Ep.162: Bunni

Bunni.jpg

This week we’re going back to our roots with the indie-licious “Bunni”. This ultra indie slasher from 2013 is a crazy mixed bag of a movie. It features all the usual suspects of a terrible movie: bad writing, horrible acting, one dimensional characters, and a shoe string budget. However, it also has some really good things going for it too. “Bunni” has some really good kills, a unique killer, solid practical effects and a smoking hot leading lady. In the end this movie left us teetering like a see-saw between its terribleness and its moments of sheer greatness and when the dust settled this film left us feeling split.
