335. Judge Dredd (1995) — A Torture Cinema “Adventure”

28 Sep Judge Dredd Movie Poster

Ewok traps, Finnish Ramones punk, and questionable cloning, oh my! Trish, Paul, and Julia are joined by our very own reviewer, Daniel Haeusser, to review the 1995 Stallone extravaganza, Judge Dredd. If only Rob Schneider hadn’t been in this film, it would still probably suck, but the team makes a few improvements, discovers some awesome music, and tries to figure out how this movie manages to be so gods awfully stupid. And Paul loses his mind diving deeper than he ever wanted to go into the motivations of Judge Dredd himself. Come back, Paul!

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.

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.

325. Queen of the Damned (2002) — A Torture Cinema “Adventure” w/ Megan O’Keefe

1 Jun

Scientology theories, nipple jackets, and, oh my god, is that Shaun singing?! This month, we honestly don’t know how to describe the bizarre twists and turns the conversation takes as Megan O’Keefe joins Shaun, Paul, and Jen to discuss the fairly maligned 2002 goth-wet dream, Queen of the Damned. Basically, the only reason to watch this movie is Aaliyah, because Lestat is an anemic, no-chinned creeper.

We hope you enjoy the episode!
