The Vampire's Coffin - Temple of Bad Podcast

The Vampire’s Coffin – Temple of Bad Podcast

Let’s not mince words about this: THE VAMPIRE’S COFFIN is a goofy movie, a Mexican horror-fest with rubber bats, balsa wood coffins, poorly choreographed fight scenes, and a “hero” (the star of THE BRAINIAC, actually) who caps off practically every scene by coming close to wetting his pants. It also happens to be a surprisingly [...]

Icetastrophe - Temple of Bad Podcast

Icetastrophe – Temple of Bad Podcast

Ever wonder what your cats do when you’re not around? Sorry to disappoint you, but likely they climb up on the couch and go to sleep. Ever wonder what kind of film Syfy runs when nobody’s watching? Very likely it’s ICETASTROPHE, a virtual non-entity of a natural disaster movie in which a meteor somehow manages to [...]

Patch Town - Temple of Bad Podcast

Patch Town – Temple of Bad Podcast

Oh, sure, anybody can look at a ROBOT MONSTER, a BIRDEMIC, a XANADU and say, “Wow, that’s stinky.” It takes next-level insight to take on the likes of PATCH TOWN, an ambitious tale of a grown up Cabbage Patch doll breaking out of the gulag-like factory where he’s enslaved to find the little girl who [...]

King Kong (1976) - Temple of Bad

King Kong (1976) – Temple of Bad

2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the film that changed the entertainment industry as we know it, the film the rewrote the rules on action entertainment, that dazzled audiences with its innovative special effects, that forever lodged in popular culture the notion that exciting adventures awaited audiences a long time ago, in a galaxy far, [...]

The Brainiac - Temple of Bad

The Brainiac – Temple of Bad

(Sung to the tune of Maniac):
A Satanist who can zip out of chains.
He is suave, and he’s smart, and clumsy.
He gropes all the chicks, and eats his victim’s brains,
Everybody says he’s eeeee-vil.
He gets burned at the stake, but is feeling no pain.
He knows it’s just a matter of time,
Three hundred years in fact, that he’s [...]

JOURNEY TO THE SEVENTH PLANET - Temple of Bad Podcast

A Tribute to Christopher Lee - The Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast

A Tribute to Christopher Lee – The Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast

No life is forever, not even that of the man who played immortal vampires, mouldering corpses, and psychotic satanists. Christopher Lee had so permanently placed his mark on the world of fantastic film that his death this past week sent a shock wave through film fandom, so assured were we that he’d always be around [...]

INVASION OF THE STAR CREATURES - Temple of Bad

INVASION OF THE STAR CREATURES – Temple of Bad

The good often travels along with the bad. The good in this case: Yours truly has made the move to the lovely city of Philadelphia, a process that led to the extended delay of this episode. The bad: the film we’re discussing, of course. The SF-comedy INVASION OF THE STAR CREATURES tries [...]

Horn's Alexandre Aja - The CFQ Interview Podcast

Horn’s Alexandre Aja – The CFQ Interview Podcast

A break from the standard Halloween fare of mad slashers and paranormal infestations, the new film HORNS brings a decidedly hometown slant to an examination of the good and evil that lives in all of us. Daniel Radcliffe plays Ig, a man (yes, man — we’re a long way from Hogwart’s) whose status within his [...]

A Talking Cat!?! - Temple of Bad

A Talking Cat!?! – Temple of Bad

We have to be clear about this: There are bad movies; there are reprehensible movies; there are movies that make you consider taking out a contract on the entire DGA, just to be sure that never in the future of humankind will there be a chance that such an affront to common decency could again [...]
