339. Maximum Overdrive (1986) — A Torture Cinema Halloween Special “Adventure”

31 Oct Maximum Overdrive Poster

Cocaine, man eating machines, and AC-DC, oh my! In this special Halloween Horror edition of Torture Cinema, Shaun, David, and Alex are joined by Zena, the Real Queen of Horror, to review the 1986 Stephen King written and directed “horror” film, Maximum Overdrive. Apparently, even Stephen King couldn’t get Stephen King right. The crew discusses how stupid the premise is, eviscerate the despicable characters, muse on where one might find a goblin semi-truck, and share a story that makes the reality of this coked out travesty even more horrifying than the movie. But at least Zena liked the movie, and that means our work here is done. Continue reading

Torture Cinema Poll: June Classics

2 Jun

Even though you probably haven’t even had the pleasure of listening to Shaun’s singing in our Queen of the Damned episode yet, it’s time to pick our torture for June! This time, we’ve decided to force you to torture us with a classic… Ok, so ‘classic’ is probably being too kind to the utter drek that you get to pick from this month. May Cthulhu have mercy on our souls.


Torture Cinema Poll: Mayday!

1 May

Well, everyone, Babylon AD was pretty awful. More awful than some of us remembered. So good job on your April pick! This time around, there are no redeeming features to any of these movies. We swear. None. So pick away and be confident that whatever you do choose, it will be torturous for our participants!!

319. The Core (2003) — A Torture Cinema “Adventure”

31 Mar

Magical geodes, giant tumors, and drill-dos, oh my! This month in a hilarious edition of Torture Cinema we visit the 2003 scientific masterpiece, The Core, which was chosen by our completely unbiased listeners with absolutely no help from certain members of the Skiffy and Fanty Team and in NO WAY influenced by the fact that we have our own resident geologist, Alex, to spoil all our ignorant fun. Come for the laughter, stay for the geology lecture.

We hope you enjoy the episode!
