    Really Awful Movies: Ep 396 – Blood Orgy of the She-Devils

    Really Awful Movies: Ep 396 – Blood Orgy of the She-Devils

    On this week’s episode, a short discussion of Blood Orgy of the She-Devils and the life and times of horror maverick, Ted V. Mikels.

    The plot is pretty bare: a soothsayer / prognosticator becomes involved with a couple. It’s not exactly a “screaming plunge into the depths of hell” promised in the poster, but it’s a super fun low-budget affair.

    Really Awful Movies: Ep 395 – The Deadly Spawn

    Really Awful Movies: Ep 395 – The Deadly Spawn

    This week on the podcast, the uber low budget New Jersey regional horror, The Deadly Spawn.

    Filmed for a meagre 30k back in 1980, and taking two years to complete, this creature feature is a super fun flick for fans of goofy sci fi flicks. It’s spirited, and cheap ‘n’ cheerful.

    A meteor crash lands into a bucolic landscape (or, a matte painting). And gooey creatures make themselves at home, in a Victorian home, much to the chagrin of the occupants.

    Tune into the Really Awful Movies Podcast every Friday!

    Really Awful Movies: Ep 394 – Crimes of the Future

    Really Awful Movies: Ep 394 – Crimes of the Future

    On this week’s episode, Crimes of the Future. Let’s get gooey and check in with this David Cronenberg effort, a real return to form.

    Crimes of the Future is a 2022 science fiction body horror drama film written and directed by David Cronenberg. The body horror flick stars Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) and Kristen Stewart. The film follows a performance artist duo who perform surgery to audiences, in a future world where human evolution has accelerated.

    The film marks Cronenberg’s return to the science fiction and horror genres for the first time since eXistenZ (1999). Unfortunately, it bombed at the box office. Don’t let that stop you!

    Really Awful Movies: Ep 393 – X

    Really Awful Movies: Ep 393 – X

    On this episode of the podcast, X. The film follows a group of, ahem, filmmakers, through Texas as they location scout for an upcoming project, Farmer’s Daughter.

    Mia Goth (of the Suspiria remake) stars as one of the starlets, whose crew encounters hicks in the sticks.

    Artfully done, replete with atmosphere, X still kinda comes up a bit short. At least to these reviewers. Tune in, and check it out.

    Really Awful Movies: Ep 392 – David Gordon Green Halloween Movies

    Really Awful Movies: Ep 392 – David Gordon Green Halloween Movies

    On this week’s episode of the podcast, a brief look back at Halloween (2018), Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends.

    What mark has David Gordon Green left on this iconic franchise?

    The last film entry has proven divisive, while there’s consensus that’s emerged, that 2018 is the best of the three. Is that the case?

    On this episode, a look back at how Blumhouse dropped the ball on this one, other reboots (Slumber Party Massacre/Scream/Texas Chainsaw Massacre/Hellraiser), the Zombie fillms, highlights, lowlights, and where we go from here.

    Really Awful Movies: Ep 391 – Head of the Family

    Really Awful Movies: Ep 391 – Head of the Family

    Head of the Family!

    Who doesn’t like a low budget exploitation horror? Especially one with an obvious double entendre like that.

    This episode of the podcast is all about the legendary Charles Band, a man responsible for a huge swath of the movies we’ve binged for years and years, and who directed this cheap and cheerful mid-90s hybrid sci fi zombie horror.

    On this episode, a breakdown of disembodied head movies from The Brain that Wouldn’t Die to Re-Animator, Full Moon Features, the name “Otis” and its prominence in horror, particularly among trashy hicksploitation villains, the home movie scene in the 80s, the changing nature of how we consume films, and much, much more!

GREAT LISTEN

Great stuff!

Really Awfully Good

Really Awful Movies is a misnomer - what our encyclopedic hosts (Jeff and Chris) cover are films not necessarily ( but occasionally) horrible, but cult films that cover everything from women in prison to dystopic musicals and every kind of misbegotten (or under loved ) creature in between. Their true love of these films shines through in every hilarious podcast. Check them out. Tons o fun.
