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.
We’re back at it again this week, and we brought friends!
It was Brittany’s pick this week, and she took us in a real weird direction by choosing the 1996 kid’s fantasy-adventure, Forest Warrior… Starring the one and only, Chuck Norris. And in a rare Second Class Cinema occurence, we had not one, but TWO guests on to discuss this week’s movie. So, welcome our pals Aaron and Tyler back to the show!
Forest Warrior follows a ragtag group of kids who go on a camping trip, only to discover that a greedy lumber tycoon is seeking to illegally deforest their beloved mountain. In a desperate bid to save it, they team up with a mythical, shape-shifting, mountain man (played by Chuck Norris) to take down Thorne by any means possible… Like hijacking their walkie-talkies, hijinx with fishing poles, and calling upon their animal friends for help. Can they defeat Thorne and save the mountain before it’s too late? They can if Chuck Norris’ mullet has anything to say about it!
Listen up as we discuss clapping bears, Chuck Norris breastfeeding a raccoon, and the power of rock & roll!
So the only place we could find to embed this trailer was the New York Times? Sorry about the ad.

On this week’s episode, we allowed Aaron to bring a movie on for us to watch! So he went on eBay and purchased Deathstalker IV: Match of the Titans on VHS for $24.99. And then he brought it over for us to watch. Head the warning and apologies if this is your first listen to us.
It was Brittany’s turn to pick the flick this week, and I’m sure you will all be very shocked to hear that she picked yet another horror comedy. Taryn joined us once again, and we watched 1988’s Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama, and it sure was a movie.
After getting caught sneaking into a sorority house to watch the initiation ceremony, a group of geeks are forced to escort the sorority pledges on the last mission of their initiation- sneak into the local mall/bowling alley, steal a bowling trophy, and bring it back to their senior sorority sisters. Along the way they encounter a punk chick named Spider (who is also robbing the Bowl-o-Rama), a ghoulish little clay-mation imp, and lot of other things that really don’t matter or make sense in the least.
Listen up as we discuss uncomfortably lengthy and awkward sex scenes, jokes with no punchlines, and Linnea Quigley as the one enjoyable aspect of this film. Enjoy!
We watched a submission film this week, and boy, was it weird. Erik’s sister Melissa recommended a bunch of awesomely terrible looking flicks to us, and while we wish we could say that the cream always rises to the top… We just aren’t goddamn liars.
We ended up picking the 1982 sci-fi/fantasy film, She. When Tom and Dick’s sister Shandra is kidnapped by the evil, football-pad-wearing Norks, they set off on an adventure to save her. On the way, they become entangled with She, the leader of a local tribe of Amazon-eque female warriors. She begrudgingly decides to help them rescue their sister. Along the way they encounter everything you could possibly imagine- from radioactive mutants and toga-wearing werepires, to a telepathic god named Godan. Will they make it past their many obstacles and rescue Shandra before it’s too late? Typically we have a lot of complaints about films that beat their viewers to death with their heavy-handed exposition… But in this case, it would have been more than welcomed. This is a lengthy saga, with very little explanation of, well, anything. We had to just take it at face value. Would we recommend it? Listen up and find out!
For the second episode of Kid’s Movie Month we had our friend Aaron come over with a movie and he brought the 2002 fantasy movie Max Magician and the Legend of the Rings! Not only did he bring that but he also came with a very big secret to let us in on as well, as a matter of fact we all let everyone in on a personal secret. We’ll cover the movie and much, much more all on a great episode of Second Class Cinema.
Sponsoring Kid’s Movie Month (for no other reason than they are also giant children like us) is Fat Foot Films! Check out their site http://www.fatfootfilms.com/ for a back log of our episode AND tons of other great content!
Coming to the site soon is a short comedy that was shot for the Boston 48hr Film Project that Tom directed and produced along side Fat Foot Films AND Aaron too. AWESOME!
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?
