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

24 Dec

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!

248. Ernest Saves Christmas (1988) — A Holiday Special Torture Cinema “Adventure”

24 Dec

Bad driving, failed children’s television, and Varney, oh my!  Shaun, Julia, Mike, Rachael, Paul, and David join forces for this very special holiday edition of Torture Cinema, featuring the listener-selected flick, Ernest Saves Christmas (1988).  We watched it so you don’t have to suffer through it for Christmas (because you were totally going to do that, right?).  What more could you ask for?

We hope you enjoy the episode, and have a great holiday, whatever you may celebrate!

Torture Cinema Poll for the Holiday Special!

10 Nov

We used to call this the Christmas Special, but given that the winter months are host to a number of holidays, we think it’s time we take a page out of the Star Wars playbook and call this the Holiday Special.

You know the drill.  VOTE!

(Note:  We’re still trying to fill out our list of holiday-theme sf/f-ish bad movies.  If you have a suggestion, leave a comment below.  We’re also trying to find non-Christmas-themed movies for this; if you know any, please let us know!)
