Tom picked the flick this week, and he thought the premise of a women’s baseball team lost in the woods with deranged killers sounded like a real home run (I’m sorry)… Our friend Aaron stopped by the studio to help us dissect this bloody baseball debacle.
When a group of drunken rednecks lose a baseball game to a traveling team of buxom babes, they are incensed, but get over it rather quickly. That is all short-lived however, when one of their own, Mino, tries to stiff the baseball coach out of $1000 he owes him over a bet on the game. Things escalate quickly, resulting in the accidental death of Mino’s son, Roy. Mino resorts to full-on Vietnam flashback mode, calling for the girls deaths, and offering $1000 per head. The race is on, can Babe and the Ball Girls escape this hillbilly nightmare unscathed, or are they all doomed to die in the woods?
In this episode we discuss our satisfaction with the death scenes, ponder the inexplicable decision made by Mino to pay $9,000 for 9 dead women instead of the paltry $1K he originally owed, and we cover just a ton of straight up grab-ass.
Unfortunately, this was not quite the splatter-fest we were hoping to grace you all with for October. But how did it measure up in every other regard?
We tried to bring you a horror review this week, in celebration of this most magnificent month… But it didn’t QUITE pan out that way. Our friend Tyler graced us with his presence for Brit’s pick this week, and she picked 1979’s, Don’t Go In The House.
Donny is a very quiet and withdrawn man who, seemingly, does not have a lot of friends or interests outside of taking care of his elderly, ailing mother. It isn’t long before we learn about how overbearing and abusive his mother was, as we’re shown her holding his arms above a lit stove in an attempt to burn the evil out of him. After a particularly dramatic workday, Donny returns to their home, only to discover that his mother had passed away during the day. Donny is pumped, and celebrates by cranking the music, smoking cigarettes in the house, and jumping all over the furniture. His excitement is cut short however, by a sinister voice in his head, a voice that is telling him to go out and punish evil women… To burn the evil out of them.
Will someone put a stop to Donny before it’s too late? Or will Donny and his flamethrower reign in terror as they purify the masses?
This movie promised us a madman terrorizing women with a flamethrower… Did it deliver? We discuss our varying ideas of what it means to “terrorize”, everyones inability to Stop-Drop & Roll, and the overbearing-mama-trauma that creates psychos. Listen up!
This week we were joined by a first-time guest- our friend and professional funny-lady, Liz Moniz. We even let her pick the flick! Liz had told us about this really strange movie she had watched with her Dad when she was a kid, a movie about a possessed refrigerator that eats people… So naturally we wanted to watch this ASAP. It took two years, but we done did it!
This movie follows a couple, Eileen and Steve, who have just relocated to NYC from Ohio, presumably in pursuit of Eileen’s dream of becoming a Broadway star. The two get a deal on a shabby apartment and quickly set about turning it into a home. Soon thereafter, the couple is visited by a seemingly crazy neighbor who warns them about previous tenants disappearing and other strange goings-on in the apartment. It’s not long before Eileen and Steve are plagued by nightmares and visions involving the refrigerator, and soon people they know begin disappearing as well. Who can quell the refrigerators demonic hunger?!
We cover a plethora of relevant topics in this week’s discussion- including gourmet cheeses, mother/daughter sexual tension, the lack of gore, and the least believable thing about this movie: $200 a month rent.
