Yee-hah and giddy up Moongoons! This week we’re taking a trip to the rodeo to take on the fairly new horror movie “Lasso”. This bronco busting ride of good time film features roided out killer rodeo cowboys, a one armed bull riding bad ass, great kills with wonderful practical effects, and a bus full of senior citizen fodder. So, grab the reigns and saddle up, its going to be one hell of a rodeo!
Winter is in full effect and with it comes the frightful weather, but that’s no where near as frightful as this week’s movie “iced”. This ski themed slasher from 1988 features bad skiing, even worse acting, visually no gore, and an ex-child star that spends nearly her entire time naked in a tub. Along with a killer wearing a bright blue puffy ski coat and one of the worst and most logic defying endings in all of horror.
Here we go Moon-goons, we’re going big for our 150th episode! This week we’re getting sentenced to hell and locked up in the “Death House”. The movie that has been dubbed “The Expendables” of horror features pretty much every name in horror that you can think of, horrible CGI, terrible dialogue, immortal super powered villains that look like they’re from Krypton, and a surprising lack of gore. However, it will leave you confused, angry and very disappointed, so yeah there’s that. In the end when the dust settles will we give “Death House” a pardon or will we give it the death sentence? Here’s a hint its the latter.
We watched “Happy Death Day”. We watched “Happy Death Day”. We watched “Happy Death Day”. This week for the first time ever in the history of the Horrible Horror Podcast, Marshall had to go at it solo. Will the episode be good? Probably not, but at least it’s an episode, right?
The New Year is coming in fast so we’re ending 2018 with a bang! This week we’re celebrating the New Year by taking on the New Year’s Eve horror movie “Minutes to Midnight”. This relatively new slasher stars William Baldwin, a skeletal Richard Grieco and features horror icon Bill Moseley phoning it in. This film also features horrible continuity errors, a son who is older than his father, an ex-wrestler, and killers that looks like they were either ripped out of the pages from a Batman comic or were Mortal Kombat rejects. However, despite all that it does have some gnarly looking weapons, great fight scenes and was surprising fun to watch.
Christmas is fast approaching and nothing says Christmas quite like telepathic psychic battles and the killer ghost of an ancient samurai warrior. Well, okay everything probably says Christmas more than that. This week we’re taking our samurai katanas and slicing up the very rare and even stranger “Blood Beat”. This 1982 gem of movie truly needs to be seen. It’s combination of horrid acting, comically bad, yet awesome special effects, and insanely bizarre plot make for a one of a kind unforgettable movie watching experience. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie.
The holiday season is here, so you know what that means, Moongoons? It’s once again time for out month long Christmas Horror movie special. This year we’re kicking it off with a delicious feast of a movie, “Mercy Christmas”. This surprisingly good indie film, which we think is destined to become a new Christmas Horror classic, manages to combine horror, humor, and heart in a perfectly wrapped gift for the viewers. We do our best to fully describe and bring this movie to life for you, but “Mercy Christmas” needs to be seen to fully and truly appreciate it’s wonderfully awesome absurdness.
Happy Thanksgiving, Moongoons! This week we’re offering up a true cinematic feast, “Blood Freak”. An incredibly bizarre yet wonderfully awful piece of movie history. This one of a kind film from 1972, truly needs to be seen to fully understand and appreciate its awesome awfulness. Featuring a chain smoking narrator, drugs, Bible thumpers, the Italian Tarzan, experimental turkey meat, along with horrendous editing, horrific acting, horrible sound, the worst screaming ever heard played on a loop, and music stings that will make your ears bleed. Do yourself a favor and listen to this episode, then watch “Blood Freak” for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.
Hey, Moongoons, have you ever watched a good horror movie and then thought to yourself “Boy, I wish someone would make a stupid, and I mean a really retarded overly stupid version of this movie?” Well, if you have then “Camp Death 3 in 2D” is the movie for you. This soon to be released indie film is a spoof of the classic “Friday the 13th Part 3” and strives to be one of the stupidest movies ever made. And we think that they succeeded in that goal, probably too much so. This craziness called a movie features a cocaine addicted squirrel, puppets, speeder bike chases ripped from “Star Wars”, offensive characters and dialogue and more “F-bombs” than all of Quentin Tarantino’s movies combined.
Holy discombobulated mess, Moongoons! We don’t even know where to begin with this crazy drunken mess of an indie movie. We can tell you that it features more characters than a J.R.R. Tolken novel, including college kids, a psycho family of maniacs, ghosts, and vampires, along with a run time that lives up to both “Hell” and “Week”. Oh, did we mention that one of the vampires is a skate boarding vampire girl in lingerie?
Eight college kids camping in the woods and getting killed. It’s a tale as old as time, so you would think that it would be pretty hard to fuck it up, right? Well, the 2018 “Pledges” managed to find a way to do just that. Is this indie film a ghost movie, a demon movie, an alien movie, or a hodgepodge smash up of all of the above? The Hell if we know! All we know for sure is that we don’t know what the fuck we just watched? However, it does have surprisingly good special and visual effects and tolerable acting.
It’s Halloween weekend and we’re wrapping up our tour of haunted house themed movies with a visit to Hobb’s Grove, California to carve up “Dark Walker”. A 2003 indie movie that features a killer hippie monster with OCD, one dimensional characters devoid of personality, awful writing, California sized plot holes, and a plot that makes less and less sense as the movie goes on. However, it does have decent kills and gore for its budget and buckets upon buckets of blood. Sadly, that’s not enough to save this movie from being total garbage, so much so, that for the first time ever we actually came back after signing off to rant about this movie some more. So , stay tuned after the episode would normally end for the bonus segment.
In this special bonus mini episode host Marshall Hampton sits down with long time guest and HHP all-star Chris Samples, to drink beers and discuss “The Houses October Built 2”. The original “The Houses October Built” has gained a spot on our “all time most hated movies” list and whose sheer mention of it sends Chris into a blind rage. So, of course we had to bring him back, sit him down and force him to watch the sequel. Will this be the movie that finally makes Chris snap?
Our tour of haunted house attraction themed movies takes us “American Fright Fest”. A relatively new indie slasher starring Dylan Walsh of “Nip Tuck” fame and a now grown up Lil’ Romeo. It also features one of the highest body counts we’ve seen in a long time, but sadly it has just about as many plot holes. Can the good out weigh the bad and carry this movie across the threshold from bad to good? We were split in our opinions this week, so listen in and judge for yourself.
Halloween season is here & with it comes the mass explosion of haunted house openings!. So keeping up with that all month long we’ll be taking on movies that have a haunted house theme.S Starting with the 2012 “House of Horrors: Gates of Hell”. An indie movie that features some of the stiffest acting we’ve ever seen, demons, crappy CGI, the creative use of a grenade, and more spontaneous explosions then you can throw an exploding crucifix at.
Rock’in Rock. It’s time to squeeze into some spandex, and pull up your leg warmers. This week we’re getting sweaty with “Killer Workout”. An 80's slasher that needs to be seen to believe. It features a great soundtrack, aerobics, possibly the worst murder weapon in movie history, aerobics, bad acting, aerobics, roided out gym rats, aerobics, and kung-fu.
College kids trapped in an old theater being stalked by a killer clown, what more could you ask for? Well, a lot apparently. This week we take on the 1999 “The Clown at Midnight”. A direct to video slasher starring the awesome Christopher Plummer and features the crazy Margot Kidder, one dimensional college kids and more giant plot holes then a giant block of Swiss cheese.
This week we follow up "Night of the Living Dead 3D" with "Night of the Living Dead 3D: Re-animation". A prequel that sounds like a remake to a remake that nobody wanted. Featuring long, long stretches of dialog and hardly any zombies this may be the most boring zombie movie ever made. However, it does have a hot girl having sex with a dead guy, so there's that.
We're coming to get you, Moongoons. This week we dug up the 2006 re-make "Night of the Living Dead 3D". An abomination of a movie that no one asked for and features shoddy writing, poor effects, pot farmers, plot holes, and nonsense. On the plus side it does have a girl who spends nearly all of her screen time completely naked.
It's Shark Week! We're celebrating by chumming up the waters, I mean snow and taking a bite out of "Avalanche Sharks". A ridiculous movie about blue glowing CGI sharks and featuring bikini clad snow bunnies, the world's worst first responders, a platoon of identical looking male characters, a rickety old Sheriff with a child bride, and not one but two Olympian characters.
