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.
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?
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.
