    EPISODE 127: LISTENER SPECIAL

    Your no-budget pals Moe and Doug have been at this since 2011, so we figured it's about time to let our listeners get a word in. On this VERY SPECIAL episode of No-Budget Nightmares we have letters and audio clips from our listeners, who are eager(?) to ask questions, make comments, and to reinforce why it's probably best to leave this to the professionals (does anyone know any?). It could be a disaster, but there's only one way to know for sure. Let's listen!

On the way, there's rabbit attacks, squirrel attacks, gorilla attacks, turtle attacks and SO MANY MORE ATTACKS. It's RISE OF THE ANIMALS and it's a) fun as hell and b) only an hour long. WHAT A CONCEPT! TAKE DRUGS AND LISTEN.

    EPISODE 123: PANTHEON BLACK (2010)

    In the arms of an angel! It's NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES #123, and we're getting RELIGIOUS with the apocalyptic green-screen sci-fi madness of Fabian Rush's PANTHEON BLACK. It's a bit like ALIEN, a bit like EVENT HORIZON and a bit like that dream you had after eating a burrito where nothing made sense and everyone looked a bit fuzzy. But you have MOE and DOUG as your guides, which means FUN (fun not guaranteed). Time to watch!

    EPISODE 122: METAL NOIR (1990)

    EPISODE 122: METAL NOIR (1990)

    This week on No-Budget Nightmares we're chatting about a true obscurity. It's the brand new (actually old) shot-on-video horror film METAL NOIR, originally directed by David R. Williams back in 1990, before immediately falling into obscurity. That was, until shot-on-video writer, creator and historian Tony Masiello unearthed it, polished it, and brought it back to the world as a special edition DVD. But was all that effort worth it? It's up to Moe and Doug to pass judgment. I wonder what they'll say? GUESS I'LL HAVE TO LISTEN AND FIND OUT!

Fantastic podcast!

One of my newest favorite podcasts! Covering the kind of films I love! Both Doug and Moe are hilarious and do such a great job covering their films. So glad to have found them!

No Budget Movie Fans rejoice!!!

Fans of micro budget cinema look no further, there is a podcast that talks about the films you love! The hosts are entertaining throughout, Doug with his witty humor and Moe with his epic replies, they really have fun while talking about these films that a lot of others would brush to the side. And even if it’s a film they love they still show faults in them with the upmost respect to the craft these directors have done to make a product with no money. So with that said give No Budget Nightmares a shot!!!

Low budget high passion

Fun and detailed romp through a sub-sub genre of film, with the refreshing goal to highlight the genre as a whole and show what truly independent cinema can offer. They do not go out of their way to make fun of or mock the films as they work their way through, but not to say they are without humor. Douglas and Moeseph exhibit wonderful chemistry and we as the listener feel as though we are sitting on the couch together as the film is explored through the review. Their passion and patience for the genre or level of film making sometimes even surpasses that of the film makers themselves and is contagious. If you ever wanted to explore the DIY or tape trader scene this is an excellent entry point to those films.
