The phrase ”guilty pleasure” is used too often to alleviate any shame we might feel for enjoying a particular movie. What if the films we called ”guilty pleasures” were actually good? Films that lack the big Hollywood budgets, might be some of the greatest films ever made. Besides, what’s better than sharing an experience with your significant other?

Join Nigel and Kaitlyn as they share with each other their love of dating, bad films, and genre films, and try to take them just a little bit more seriously.

    Killbots (aka Chopping Mall Redux) (1986)

    A group of teenagers must fight for their lives in a mall guarded by malfunctioning killbots! 

    For this 100th episode of Bad Movie Date Night, Nigel and Kaitlyn decided they needed a chance to redeem their favorite of all the "bad" movies, Chopping Mall, the classic film about malfunctioning robots blowing up heads and chasing down teens in a mall after it closes. This episode is chock full of soapboxes as Nigel discusses how far the podcast has come, the fine line between horror and horror-comedy, the lack of respect the horror genre receives, and why so many other shows look down on films.

    After returning from the grave, a zombie attacks a group of teens trying to enjoy an autumn hayride.

    What better way to capitalize on one of the most iconic roles ever than to play it again! S.

Tune in this week to hear Nigel and Kaitlyn discuss the similarities between FleshEater and Night of the Living Dead, as well as where the zombie mythos came from (and where it's going), and the countless sequels to Night of the Living Dead.

Dynamic Duo

These two make a fun and interesting Duo. They play well off of each other.
This isn’t your typical movie review podcast. Nigel and Kaitlyn always make me want to watch the movies they review. Good or bad they make the movies interesting.
