Episode 102 - .com For Murder
So, uh… we’re back?
After an extremely impromptu, year-long break- which was filled with a multitude of inconvenient life dookie we won’t bore you all with- we decided it’s the right time to dive back into SCC. HOW WE’VE MISSED YOU ALL. We’ve got a few episodes banked, one of which we will share with you today!
Our good friend Fallon joined us for this episode - exactly a year ago today - and it’s been waiting to see the light of day ever since. We watched the sad,misguided, hypothesis of our internet future… also known as the 2002 murder flick, .com for Murder.
Sondra is wheelchair-bound after a skiiing accident, and is recovering at the high-tech home of her boyfriend (unnecessarily played by Roger Daltrey). Bored and on the mend, she’s joined by her sister, Misty as she logs into American Love Online- pretending to be her boyfriend and chatting up his various contacts. After witnessing a live-feed of a murder in one of the chats, they enlist the help of FBI agent Matheson (played even more unnecessarily by Huey Lewis) to track down the killer. But after a while, Sondra and Misty start to suspect they might be the ones in danger…
Listen up as we reflect on the good ol’ days when Spencer’s Gifts could meet all your rubber fetus needs, and every chat room was filled with 14 year old females from Cali. We’re back bitches!
Episode 101 - Welcome to Planet Earth (1996)
WELCOME TA EARF!
We were joined this week by our good friend (and local comic), Rob Pierce! He graced us- not only with his presence- but with a truly enjoyable second-class gem: Welcome to Planet Earth.
Our story begins with Joseph! Having just inherited his deceased mother’s boarding house in a dangerous urban neighborhood, he’s short on cash and desperate to find some tenants as soon as possible. Lucky for him, that very evening Charlie, Rhonda and their daughter Daphne show up on his doorstep- looking like they just stepped out of a Normal Rockwell painting, and needing a place to rent. At first it seems too good to be true, rich white folks with money to burn, who are all too pleased that Joseph wants to bang their daughter. But are they what they seem? Or are they aliens vacationing on Earth, here to take in all the sights and vigilante justice the inner-city has to offer? Only time will tell!
Welcome to Planet Earth stars George Wendt and Shanna Reed, and is truly a bizarre and unique film. We discuss this movie’s oddly adept social commentary and clever dialogue, the sexiness of violent women, and why Joseph’s mom loves singing in the graveyard. Listen up!

Episode 100 - Horror House on Highway Five (1985)
Hot damn y'all, it's our 100th Episode!
Thanks to all of you who have somehow stumbled upon us and continue to listen to our ridiculous banter. We’re so happy other people love these misfit films and want to celebrate them the same way we do- in a mockingly critical and often obnoxious manner. Especially when we’ve dropped off the earth for a while due to life, and you all still hit us up with new film recommendations and discussions on older episodes. We know we've been gone for a while, thanks for not making it weird. Also, thanks to all our friends, on this episode and every other, who are always down to watch bad movies and share their love and knowledge of trash cinema with us. We love you all.
For this super special occasion, we were joined by not one, not, two, not, three, but FOUR friends from previous episodes who came over to watch this flick with us… and for the first time ever we recorded a commentary during the movie! Tyler, Fallon, Gray and Aaron all came by to watch the newly restored Horror House on Highway Five, which we recently purchased from Vinegar Sydrome (you can purchase it here if you want to watch along with the commentary, or just in general: https://vinegarsyndrome.com/shop/horror-house-on-highway-5/ ). It was interesting, to say the least.
The synopsis of this film would tell you that it's about a crazed psychopath who stalks the streets, wearing a Richard Nixon mask, murdering helpless victims… but is it really? We had a lot of fun trying to break down the various threads of story in this film, which weren't always coherent… But hey, this is the second movie we watched recently that’s featured random Nazi -occult subplots! Also, ferns!

Episode 99 - Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer (2000)
DON'T TELL GRANDMA SHE'S A REINDEER! Or something like that. It's Christmas time in the city and we watched Tom's pick this week, the 2000 animated special Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer. History repeated itself with how we got to this movie and we're pretty glad it did I think.
