342. Cowboys vs Dinosaurs (2015) — A Torture Cinema “Adventure”

30 Nov

Dino Olympics, Jurassic Park, and bikinis, oh my! For this episode of Torture Cinema, Shaun and Julia are joined by our intern, Becca, and special guest, Adam Callaway, to drunkenly review Cowboys vs Dinosaurs, an absolutely terrible movie about rampant sexism, one totally awesome guy (not the main character), and, you guessed it, cowboys fighting dinosaurs. Sadly, even Quaid couldn’t save this movie despite his massive arsenal of weapons. We have to say, Patreon supporters, you picked a truly torturous movie this time. Continue reading

332. Battle Beyond the Stars (1980) — A Torture Cinema “Adventure”

31 Aug

Suggestive spaceships, gin dispensers, and giant crystals, oh my! Paul and Jen are joined by one of our frequent victims, Michael J. Martinez, to discuss the 1980 Seven Samurai inspired space-sploitation(TM) film, Battle Beyond the Stars. Honestly, we probably should have known what to expect based on the producer (spoilers), but the sheer inconsistency of the plot and world-building, the offensive tropes, and the completely inane earnestness of the main character still had us scratching our heads and groaning in dismay. BUT AT LEAST WE GOT GEORGE PEPPARD!

We hope you enjoy the episode!

330. Night of the Comet (1984) — A Torture Cinema “Adventure”

7 Aug

Killer comets, zombie scientists, and arcade game rivalries, oh my! Jen, Alex, and Paul are joined by the wonderful Keith Manuel to discuss the 1984 post apocalyptic film, Night of the Comet! A film which is really not all that torturous even when you consider it has absolutely no logical consistency to how a killer comet kills everyone on earth… except teenagers who like malls and guns. Also, a baby Chakotay doing sit-ups. Yum.

We hope you enjoy the episode!

327. Fiend Without a Face (1958) — A Torture Cinema “Adventure”

28 Jun

Facehugger brains, Canadian tourism, and the mountains of Manitoba, oh my! This month, Trish, Shaun, and David (our resident Canadian horror film professor!) talk about the 1958… ummm… classic? Fiend Without a Face! It’s bad, folks, I mean, it’s really bad… So bad that Shaun ends up defending the Transformers films in response. However, David lays down some horror film factoids and Trish appreciates the stupidity, so make of that what you will.

We hope you enjoy the episode!
