Michael Myers is back and Jamie Lee Curtis isn’t putting up with his shit in a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s classic, ‘Halloween’… also called ‘Halloween.’ Does this slasher still cut like a knife, or are we looking at death by a thousand AARP card cuts?
We’ll go in depth on this latest installment, directed by David Gordon Green and co-written by Danny McBride and featuring an A-list cast that includes Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton and a return cameo from the original The Shape, The Nick Castle . We also tease a discussion on the Michael Myers-less “Halloween III” which we end up saving for another episode because after a two month hiatus, we talk for a really long time.
Grab your Shatner masks and listen in on our discussion. Let us know what you thought of the new ‘Halloween’ on Twitter.
As celebrators of earnest awfulness at the Sobadcast, there’s something about listening to an enthusiastic caller sharing their experience sharing a couple of tall ones with a mullet-sporting sasquatch on some backwoods Washington State logging trail that just sits right with us. All the better that you couldn’t tell who was nuttier, the callers or the hosts.
As an homage to those paranormal radio shows like Coast to Coast AM hosted by Art Bell, George Noory and the like, we present you some archival footage of the little-known Full Moon Radio show with host Pat Moon (and guest host Philipander Poon). Sponsored by Aqua Velva.
Have you ever wondered how certain movies just never appeared on your radar, despite having seen most other entries in the genre? So did we when we recently stumbled upon the 1981 slasher flick Final Exam. Then we watched the movie.
On this episode we study out the misguided homages to better films, the extra long scenes that don’t lead anywhere or further the plot and of course the random wedgie tug that may have been a character choice but probably wasn’t.
Stick around at the end where we shamelessly namedrop the Skip to the End podcast and hand out some grades of our own for some of the latest releases.
What beats a paradox? A full house. Actually, hell if we know, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about Netflix and J.J. Abrams’ Super Bowl surprise – another entry in the Cloverfield series. By now even your pet guinea pig, Colonel Squeaker has weighed in on this one, but we’ve decided to take a crack, too. Hey, we never said we were timely.
The golden age of 80s slasher cinema produced some interesting, if not great movies. In this episode, we buy a ticket for Terror Train, a 1980 Canadian-American production that slipped through the cracks of our adolescent viewing. Jamie Lee Curtis, Ellis from Die Hard and David Copperfield playing against type as a – wait for it – magician! It can’t be all bad can it?
Podcasts are dropping left and right analyzing the latest Star Wars blockbuster, The Last Jedi. But one major plot point that’s not being discussed in all these podcasts is, “What happened to that Star Wars disco record?”
On this episode, we’re taking it back to the funky Seventies to talk about the brief era where John Williams’ iconic themes were slapped and slathered with a jazzy disco sheen. We also go in depth on the album below by noted* jazz funk surf legends, the Jeff Wayne Space Shuttle. If you have any desire to listen to some, err, interesting interpretations on the Star Trek, Planet of the Apes TV show as well as the Superman and Batman themes, check out this blog post from 2012 that has a link to access .mp3 files of the entire album.
What is it they say about sequels being bloated and paling in comparison to the original? Well we here at the So Bad It’s… podcast don’t listen to such talk, because Part 2 of our discussion on the Friday the 13th movie series with is longer, better and more entertaining than the Crispin Glover dance from the Final Chapter. Click play already!
Somewhere along the journey of growing up in the 80s, Friday the 13th moves went from making us scream with terror to scream with laughter. On this episode of So Bad It’s… we’re joined by fellow Friday aficionado Graham LaMontagne as we track our memories, thoughts and insights and discuss the series and all things Jason Voorhees.
In keeping with the series’ myriad of sequels, this is the first of a two-part episode. So grab your hockey mask or burlap sack and meet us up at Camp Crystal Lake with Dudley, Corey Feldman, Crispin Glover, Alice, Kris and the rest of the gang.
The passing of Adam West on June 9 was felt by generations. Whether you knew him as Mayor Adam West from Family Guy, or for the role that came to define him, Batman from the 1960s TV show, there was no mistaking that butterscotch smooth voice. The world is a little less entertaining now that he’s gone.
On this episode of So Bad It’s…we talk about Adam West and the 1960s Batman television show, including listing our favorite Pow graphics, some of which are shown above. They may or may not be real. Jon then relates his fond memories of Batgirl Yvonne Craig. Also, Broadway Joe Namath stops by and gives us an idea for a future episode, because of course he does. Go long!
