Torture Cinema Poll: October Doubleheader (VOTE!)

2 Oct

It’s that time of year again.  Halloween is upon us, and that means we need to get ready for our Halloween special.  But we also haven’t recorded an episode of Torture Cinema in a while, so that means we’re going to do two in October to make things extra fun.

There are two polls:  one for early October and one for Halloween.  So, vote away!

(Note:  the Halloween Special poll will remain open until Monday 10/10!)

 

298. Sphere (1998) — A Torture Cinema “Adventure”

27 Jun Sphere -- Poster 1998

Eggs, squid, and bad dreams, oh my!  Our latest listener-directed Torture Cinema episode has finally arrived.  This time, we discuss the infamous adaptation of Michael Crichton’s Sphere starring Dustin Hoffman, Sharon Stone, Samuel L. Jackson, and more!  At least two of us have a bit of a rant about this movie, so you should expect some pure, unadulterated Skiffy and Fanty rage in this episode!

We hope you enjoy the episode!

294. Mazes and Monsters (1982) — A Torture Cinema “Adventure”

20 Apr Mazes and Monsters

Gorvilles, LARPing, and Tom Hanks, oh my!  In our much delayed first Torture for the year, the entire crew joins forces to tackle the infamous anti-D&D TV movie, Mazes and Monsters.  And boy did this one get away from us.  I think the best way to describe this episode is with a gif:

289. The Santa Clause (1994) — A Torture Cinema Holiday Special “Adventure”

24 Dec The Santa Clause

Elf special ops, killer hot cocoa, and reindeer, oh my!  The holidays are here, and no holiday would be complete without a holiday-themed Torture Cinema episode.  In our final episode of the season, we tackle 1994’s Tim Allen venture, The Santa Clause.  From kickass elves to creepy child kidnappings to the wonderful joy of the Christmas spirit, we’ve got plenty to say about this supposedly awful movie!

We hope you enjoy the episode!

288. Barbarella (1968) — A Torture Cinema “Adventure”

21 Dec Barbarella

Hairy children herders, orgasm machines, and sexy hands, oh my! In this sadly late edition of Torture Cinema, the Skiffy and Fanty crew tackles the infamous 1968 sexploitation film, Barbarella.  We cover the film’s legacy, the strange imagery and sexploitation elements, hairy guys, orgasm machines, and so much more!

We hope you enjoy the episode!
