Superman III - 7/23/16

Travis goes to bat for Superman III (1983), in which someone thought it would be a good idea to put Richard Pryor and Superman together for the Man of Steel's third big screen showdown. In this sequel, Superman faces off against a gifted computer hacker, an evil tycoon, and - wouldn't you know it - a Super Computer that may be able to destroy the Son of Krypton once and for all! Listen as we talk creepy cyborg transformations, that day that Superman became a jerk, and more on on this week's exciting episode!

Jaws 3-D - 7/16/16

Colin dares to go back in the water for Jaws 3-D (1983), and finds that the third dimension is terror! Florida's SeaWorld is about to open an new underwater attraction when a giant, 35-foot great white shark swims in through an open sea gate and terrorizes the visitors on opening day. Dennis Quaid, as the son of Amity police Chief Brody, runs around trying to save the guests and his relationship with perky whale expert Bess Armstrong. Listen as we relive the brief 80's 3D movie craze, compare the Jaws shark to Friday the 13th's Jason, and get our eyeballs gouged out by amazing 3D in this week's exciting episode!

This sequel adventure finds the diminutive Gremlins/Critters ripoffs (from Charles Band's Empire Pictures) hiding out in a travelling carnival's spook house, where they wreak all sorts of havoc, mischief and murder until a plucky carny, his drunken uncle, a leggy harem dancer, and a profit-conscious businessman, get wise and try to send them back to Hell with ancient carny magic. Listen in as we gab about the entire Ghoulies series (so you don't have to!) on this week's exciting episode!

Sorceress - 6/25/16

Colin conjures up the 1982 fantasy film Sorceress, a campy flick from the post-Conan, 80's fantasy movie craze. An evil sorcerer searches for his twin girls (Playboy's Leigh and Lynnette Harris), warrior women who were raised as boys, and who now team up with a barbarian, a satyr, and a dwarf, to stop him from conjuring an evil deity to enslave the world. Listen as we name drop as many 80's fantasy films as we can while pointing out the bad acting, bad dubbing, and altogether hysterical awfulness of a movie that has to be seen to be believed, on this week's exciting episode!

The Last Dragon - 6/18/16

Holly tries to find "The Glow" of Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon (1985), Motown's first (and only) motion picture production. A kung-fu movie by way of MTV music videos, this blacksploitation flick centers on a martial arts student, Bruce Leroy (Taimak), who seeks to become master of his discipline, which can only be achieved by defeating both the Sho'Nuff - the Shogun of Harlem - and a slimy corporate type who threatens a pretty TV VJ (Vanity). Nothing could have prepared us for the explosive, laser-enhanced final battle!

Watchers - 6/11/16

Sean takes a look back at a movie that terrified him as a sensitive 15-year-old: the Corey Haim vehicle Watchers (1988). Based on a novel by Dean R. Koontz, Watchers is the story of a super-intelligent, genetically engineered dog who has a psychic link with another, more beastly creature. When both of them escape from a government research facility, they somehow end up putting 80's teen heartthrob Corey Haim and his family in danger. Listen as we give props to the genius of Michael Ironside, have a lengthy aside about the merits of the Sylvester Stallone movie Cobra, and figure out how you can make a monster movie without having a monster in your movie.

Ninja III: The Domination - 6/4/16

Travis takes us back to a pop-culture moment in American history when ninja popularity peaked with Ninja III: The Domination (1984), in which an aerobics instructor (Lucinda Dickey) - who moonlights as a telephone repairman - becomes possessed by the spirit of an evil ninja and starts hunting down the cops who killed him. Join us for full-on ninja-skills dissection of an absolutely insane 80's gem, plus we try to determine where movie nudity has disappeared to when we answer listener mail!

Pieces - 5/28/16

Colin proves you don't have to go to Texas for a chainsaw massacre with Pieces (1982), a camp-classic splatter opus. A child hacks his mother to death after she catches him assembling a naughty jigsaw puzzle; forty years later, a black-gloved serial killer starts carving up coeds at a Boston university with a chainsaw. Could they be related? Is the killer trying to assemble a human jigsaw puzzle? You'll howl with delight at both the movie and our episode as we try to recreate classic Pieces line-readings, marvel at completely random kung-fu, and behold the majesty of Pieces - it's exactly what you think it is!

Sorority House Massacre II - 5/21/16

Sean takes us ringside for the cleavage vs cleavers experience that is Sorority House Massacre II (1990), not to be confused with Slumber Party Massacre II, although this is a sequel to Slumber Party Massacre. Got that? Nubile sorority girls buy a former murder house - in the hope of transforming it into their new sorority house - and then inexplicably summon the killer's spirit with a Ouija board, and are murdered one by one.  Come back with us to the late age of the boobs & blood slasher formula as we try to sort out Sorority House Massacre II on this week's show!
