BLACKENSTEIN: Bad Movie Podcast

BLACKENSTEIN: Bad Movie Podcast

As we’ve previously noted, in the sixties, the revolution wasn’t televised, and film wasn’t always an accurate conduit for measuring the temper of the times. BLACKENSTEIN was meant to ride the then-burgeoning wave of (duh) blaxsploitation films, reaching out to African-American audiences with a story that provided all the elements of [...]

SANTA CLAUS: THE MOVIE: Bad Fantasy Film Podcast

THE MAN WITHOUT A BODY: Bad Movie Podcast

THE MAN WITHOUT A BODY: Bad Movie Podcast

As best as we can determine, the producers of THE MAN WITHOUT A BODY had a camera and some film and said to themselves, “Well, we’ve got to do something with this stuff.” And the dedicated advocates of the Temple of Bad have to agree with these esteemed artistes: This film is certainly a thing. [...]

RIKI-OH: THE STORY OF RICKY: Bad Movie Podcast

RIKI-OH: THE STORY OF RICKY: Bad Movie Podcast

In the future — and by “future,” we mean 2001 — the Chinese prison system will be stupid. Also violent, sadistic, and quite, quite unsanitary — what with there not being a wall, fixture or floor that isn’t thoroughly coated with the viscera of its unfortunate inhabitants — but mostly really, [...]

MAC AND ME: Bad Film Podcast

MAC AND ME: Bad Film Podcast

MAC AND ME is another one of those transcendental experiences — a film so awful, a film so wrongheaded in all its aspects, a film so cynically devised and ham-fistedly executed that it practically redefines the idea of the bad film. An obvious rip-off of the Steven [...]

MARS NEEDS WOMEN: Bad Film Podcast

MARS NEEDS WOMEN: Bad Film Podcast

Oh, the Sixties, was there a way in which you weren’t one of our most fraked-up decades? War, assassinations, riots in the streets, MY MOTHER THE CAR on TV — never was there a time when it more seemed that society was shredding at the seams. Fortunately, director Larry Buchanan, the mastermind behind such cinematic [...]

Donnie Yen on DRAGON: Martial Arts Fantasy Interview Podcast

Donnie Yen on DRAGON: Martial Arts Fantasy Interview Podcast

But when he seemingly inadvertently [...]

Ben Browder on BAD KIDS GO TO HELL: Horror Interview Podcast

Ben Browder on BAD KIDS GO TO HELL: Horror Interview Podcast

In such series as FARSCAPE and STARGATE SG-1, Ben Browder traveled to distant universes filled with strange and fascinating creatures. But in all their adventures, neither FARSCAPE’s John Crichton nor SG-1′s Cameron Mitchell ever had to contend with an environment as daunting as high school, or a life form as enigmatic [...]

STARCRASH: Bad Film Podcast

STARCRASH: Bad Film Podcast

Italy has brought us so many wonderful things: Fellini; lasagna; Silvio Berlusconi (that last is debatable). But among the many marvels borne of those shores, truly the most wondrous has to be the knock-off film, a genre that took groundbreaking, innovative American titles and replicated them with [...]

Director Victor Ginzburg on GENERATION P: Science Fiction Interview Podcast

Director Victor Ginzburg on GENERATION P: Science Fiction Interview Podcast

Eve bit the apple, Pandora opened the box, and for a certain generation of young Russians, the first taste of a certain, ambrosial nectar that we in the West call Pepsi did close to the same thing: unleash a desire that, once freed, could not be contained. In the caustic, Russian [...]
