Brittany’s selection this week was the 1984 track and field slasher Fatal Games! We always thought javelins looked dangerous and this movie proves it.

Episode 18: Dollman (1991)
Fresh out of Cult Month, Erik picks the 1991 Action-Comedy Dollman. Brought to us by Full Moon Entertainment; this movie was not the movie we thought it was going to be when we started but we’re sure glad we were wrong. Second time guest Brian assists us in reviewing this one.
Episode 17: Gymkata (1985)
We learned how misleading this title is when we watched it as our latest pick for Cult Month. Joined once again by our dear friend, Aaron, we viewed and discussed this 1985 gynastics-riddled “martial arts” film.
Jonathan Cabot is an accomplished gymnast who is rigorously trained in martial arts and is forced to compete in the grueling survival competition, known as “The Game” (not the one starring Michael Douglas). The Game takes place in the eastern European country of Parmistan. The prize for winning? The ability to ask the King for anything, and have it be granted. There’s a whole other subplot about a dad, a space station, and some dude with a rat-tail… But we won’t spoil it all.

Episode 16: Freeway (1996)
Brittany chose the movie this week and she picked 1996’s Freeway for her Cult Month selection. This is probably the closest we’ve come so far to watching something with actual substance. First time guest Jimmy is on to help us recap this mid-90’s gem.
Episode 15: Friday the 13th V: A New Beginning (1985)
Not only is it Cult Month here on SCC, we are graced with a Friday the 13th. This made our next selection very easy. On our Friday the 13th Special we cover the fifth in the series, 1985’s A New Beginning with first time guest Brandon.
Episode 14: Samurai Cop (1991)
Erik selected our second film for Cult Month, and we watched the 1991 buddy-cop, shlock-fest Samurai Cop. This movie became a fast favorite for us at Second Class Cinema, so it was an obvious choice to present it for Cult Month!
Hot-shot cop, Joe Marshall (“Samurai Cop”), and his partner Frank, take to the streets to put a stop to the notorious Katana gang. Of course, they make time along the way to bang some babes, have gunfights and eat birthday cake in a speedo. Everything about this movie is hilarious, from the bad dialogue and continuity (that WIG!), to mullets and matching underwear. This is a rare b-movie gem. Oh! It also stars Robert Z’Dar’s face!
Listen up, as we try to dissect what makes this movie so amazingly enjoyable.

Episode 13: Miami Connection (1987)
CULT MONTH IS HERE! Tom kicks it off with the orphan-rockin’, ninja killin’ madness that is Miami Connection! First time guest Aaron joins us for our first installment during Cult Month!
Episode 12: Girlfriend From Hell (1989)
On the last episode before we announce next month being Cult Month!.. We dig in to Brittany’s selection 1989’s Girlfriend From Hell. There’s something about 1989 that just make me feel like a shimmering pile of glitter. Ya know?
