Episode 26 – Halloween III

sobadcast_pitfall2_1500x500

There’s no law saying Halloween can’t be extended beyond October 31, so we’re keeping the spirit alive with an added episode which asks the question, “Why did Pete make Jon watch Halloween III?” The answer is simple: so we could do a podcast episode on it!

Halloween III gets a lot of grief because it doesn’t feature Michael Myers as the antagonist and is an outlier in the series. It’s also gained a cult status over the years as the oddity in what became an increasingly odd series. But does that mean it’s any good?

It does have America’s Treasure Tom Atkins going for it, so…

Epsiode 24 – Full Moon Radio

full-moon_1500x500

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.

Episode 23 – Final Exam

sobadcast_pitfall2_1500x500

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.

Episode 22 – Ghosthouse Part 2

Just when you thought it was safe to back into the Ghosthouse…

Our 132-hour expose of this 1988 Italian horror movie continues with Part 2, where Jon, Pete and guest Bernie Gonzalez dial it up a few notches to discuss Willy Moon, world’s creepiest happy-go-lucky hitchhiker, among other details.

Episode 21 – Ghosthouse Part 1

Since friend, artist and all-around great guy Bernie Gonzalez told us to watch the bizarro 1988 horror flick Ghosthouse (it has been give then RiffTrax treatment) it’s only fitting we have him on to explain himself. We also get a comprehensive summary of Italian giallo cinema, of which Ghosthouse is a part. When the Italian director uses the nom de plume Humphrey Humbert in the credits, you know something messed up is happening.

Add a little ghost girl, a not really creepy clown doll and some Troll 2-level acting and you have this beautiful disaster. Plus America’s favorite happy-go-lucky hitchhiker, Willy Moon. Ciao!

Episode 20 – The Cloverfield Paradox

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.

Episode 19 – Terror Train in Vain

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?

Episode 13 – Comedy on the Death Star

What would it be like to entertain the stormtroopers with a stand up gig on the Death Star? You know the Empire has its own galactic version of the USO and working on the Death Star can’t be the most exciting job in the world. Sure, you get to blow up occasional planets and transfer bad hombres to the detention block, but walking those long, sparse hallways gets tedious.

On this episode of So Bad It’s…we talk through what a stand up comic might go through on the galaxy’s ultimate weapon. And in a future episode where we might showcase a 15-minute Star Wars stand-up act, if we can actually come up with the material. Worst case, we just X-Wing it.

 

Episode 12 – Random Questions Part 2

There were questions. There were answers. There were more questions. Therefore, there is a Part 2. In this episode, we pick up where we left off in Part 1, with Pete throwing Jon random questions which lead to equally random answers. It starts with the Commodore 64 and goes from there. Buckle up and press play.

Episode 11 – Random Questions Part 1

website-banner-hulk

All the questions you never knew you wanted asked. None of the responses you know you didn’t want answered.

We tinker with the formula on the latest episode of the So Bad It’s…podcast with a series of random questions about ninjas, the Six Million Dollar Man, how good a diplomat Godzilla would be, which Nintendo Ice Hockey player was the best, Dungeons & Dragons, and more. So much more, we’re making this a two-parter. You’re welcome!
