BONUS EPISODE 6: Elves (1989)

HO HO HO! We hope each and every one of you fiends had a great Christmas.
To polish off the holidays in a merry fashion, we decided to do a Bonus Episode on a Bad Movie Sunday recommendation, the 1989 flick, Elves.

Kirsten hates Christmas. So much so, that her and her friends, who’ve dubbed themselves “The Sisters of Anti-Christmas” perform a ritual to ruin Christmas. But unbeknownst to them, they actually performed a Nazi spell, calling forth an elf who is on a mission to impregnate a woman in an attempt to create a super-race of people who will take over the world. Makes sense right?

Listen up as we discuss the weird incestuous vibes this movie puts out, Grizzly Adam’s upsetting lack of Santa attire, and the truly insane last words of our “final” girl. Enjoy!

Also, episode 100 is just around the corner, so please feel free to reach out to us with thoughts of what we should watch watch, or give us fun stuff to read on the air!

Episode 99: Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer (2000)

Merry Christmas, gentlefolk!
We’re deep in the holiday spirit here at Second Class Cinema, and Tom’s pick for the week says it all. We watched yet another weird Canadian animated Christmas film, Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.

This film covers the age-old Christmas tropes of greed, capitalism and hit and runs. No one in the Spankenheimer family believes Jake, when on Christmas eve, he tells them that he saw Grandma get run over by Santa’s sleigh. Nine months pass, with no word from Grandma, and surprisingly no one seems to give a shit. That is, until Jake’s gold-digging cousin Mel tricks Grampa into signing over the family store, which Mel intends to sell to the CEO of a giant corporation. Jake realizes it’s up to him to email Santa and venture to the North Pole to bring back Grandma, in one last attempt to save the family business.

This movie makes some interesting creative choices, to say the least. Listen up as we discuss Grampa’s senility, Santa’s secret dungeon, and how Grandma is likely a young, hot, were-reindeer. Merry Christmas!

Episode 60: Santa With Muscles (1996)

Check out the trailer here

We are RAPIDLY approaching Christmas here on Second Class Cinema so Tom thought it was only appropriate to bring a little Christmas spirit with him on his selection this week. We watched the 1996 Hulk Hogan holiday ho-down Santa With Muscles. We had special guest Tyler on to help us discuss this one. This is the SECOND Hulk Hogan movie he’s been on for so we’re becoming experts on the subject. Do we shatter our rating system trying to figure this one out!?

Listen up!
