APOLOGIES, for our lengthy and unannounced absence, Citizens!
The last month has been a doozy and we had to take an unplanned break due to purchasing real-estate, sickness, ailments, Pokemon cards… the works. But we’re finally back this week with a fucking weird movie, which, of course, Jim joined us to watch.
This week Erik picked the 1989 cyber-punk, body-horror insanity that is Tetsuo: The Iron Man. Apparently this film is about a metal fetishist who is hit by a car and left for dead by the main character- known only as “Man”. The fetishist then seeks revenge by slowly causing the “Man” to grow random parts and appendages made of metal… Slowly turning him INTO metal.
Listen up as we try to discuss this truly bizarre film… We try to mask our confusion by struggling to discuss the plot, and having a grunting contest.
It was Brittany’s turn to pick this week, and we’re sure it will surprise everyone to know that she picked a horror-comedy. We watched the 2015 New Zealand gore-fest, Deathgasm.
After being forced to live with his overly religious aunt and uncle, Brodie tries to make the best of things by making a few new friends and starting a metal band. He even attracts the attention of his classmate, Medina, who is a total babe. Unfortunately for him, it’s not enough to make him feel at home. He gets beat up by his cousin for talking to Medina, his family treats him like the spawn of Satan, and his classmates think he’s a freak. So when he and his best friend Zakk discover an ancient text- a song to summon demons, known as the Black Hymn- it’s not a surprise that they think it’s metal as fuck and decide to play it. Bloody chaos ensues, and now it’s up to Dethgasm (and Medina) to stop the demons and prevent the demon Aeloth from taking over the world.
This movie was a gem in the same vein as Dead Alive and Evil Dead, and was a gory joy to watch. Listen up as we discuss dildo murder, barbed wire weed-whackers and the power of chainmail metal babes! BRUTAAAAL!
We are keeping up with Horror Movie Month by watching a DOOOOOUBLE FEEEEEATURE! We watched May and The Loved Ones, a couple of SCAAAAARY LAAAAAADIES! We had b-movie professional and our friend Fallon come on to help us dive deep in to the insanity of a woman.
We take in our 50th episode with Erik’s pick for our horror movie adventure this month with the Japanese horror/comedy Wild Zero! Yes. We did in fact play along with the drinking game portion of this movie. Our friend Jimmy comes on to help us drink, discuss and debate.
OCTOBER IS HERE!!! That means horror movies and so this is Horror Movie Month… OBVIOUSLY! Tom picked the 2012 Irish slasher/clown movie Stitches to kick it off. We all pretty much went in to one side on this rating. What side do you think our ratings fell on? Listen up as Tyler comes on and helps us discuss this insane clown picture.
On this week’s podcast we discuss Erik’s pick, the 1988 Godfrey Ho monster movie Thunder of Giant Serpent! This is Erik’s second time picking a Godfrey Ho movie, the first being RoboVampire. We had our friend and fellow b-movie lover Fallon on to help get in to grave detail the deeper meanings of girls mounting snakes. It get’s real analytical-like here on the Second Class Cinema this week so listen up and find out how it may have impacted our ratings!
YES ANOTHER BONUS EPISODE! A day early as well! In this episode we “very quickly discussed” the 1985 French horror movie Devil Story. We went out in PUBLIC to watch this one though, that’s right, The Arkham Film Society put on this show for us in Providence. Since we didn’t have notes to take, nor did we have the immediate discussion on our side, we reduced this episode to a reaction to some of the major moments as well as rating it. This is the second AFS movie we’ve done on the show as we covered the 1981 slasher Home Sweet Home. Currently on YouTube only, but soon to come to Podbean!

It’s the LAST day of Kid’s Movie Month! YAAAAAY!!! We felt like wrapping the month up with something a little strange, and that was the 1988, sci-fi/thriller Nukie! Ok maybe it wasn’t a “thriller” but Nukie IS terrifying. Jimmy came on to talk about this one with us to help figure out who Nukie is, why he’s here, and why he just won’t die. We go over whether or not this movie would be watchable for children today as well as a long detailed list of what we think Nukie is ACTUALLY made of. LISTEN UP!
