We bought 3,120 DVDs on a whim. Now we're watching them one by one, and reviewing them... badly.

Episode 97 - So Many Twelfths

It's been a minute since our last episode, so we have many movies to review for your listening pleasure. We begin with Uncle Peckerhead, Nacho Libre, Black Bear, End of Days Inc., Willy's Wonderland, and the entire Wrong Turn Cinematic Universe. And if that wasn't enough, we still watched two DVDs from the actual collection: Freddy Vs. Jason, and one of our 14 copies of Superbad.

Episode 96 - Rated R

After much hiatus, we are back. Yet somehow, we barely watched any movies so we manage to stuff not two, but four main features into this episode. All but one of the movies we watched (including non-features) were rated R, but we seriously question the rating system at this point. From outside the collection, we watched Nina Forever, Letters to Satan Claus, Red Dog, and Psycho Goreman. For the main features, we review Eastern Promises, Hide and Seek(aka Cord), Red Eye and Hot Shots.

Episode 95 - What Is This Place

This week Jen is fed up with all the movies that include the line "what is this place," which early estimates show is about 66.6% of all movies. From outside of the DVD collection, we watched Castle Freak (2020), Spare Parts, The Special, Freaky, and also a buck-wild documentary called Tickled. Our main feature is a Robert Rodriguez double-feature with two polar opposite movies: Planet Terror and Spy Kids 3D: Game Over. Take a wild guess which one of those we liked better.

Episode 94 - Ravioli Make-Out

We are back from hiatus and have a stack of mostly 90's movies to review. First, we discuss the Canadian TV series Monster Warriors because holy crap you guys, you've gotta watch at least some of it. Then, we talk about Idiocracy, Urban Legend, Monstrous, It Cuts Deep, and probably some others but who remembers. For the main feature, we discuss FUBAR fairly briefly and do a deep dive on a sweet little gem called Point of No Return.

Episode 93 - Air Mattress Orgy

We love it when all of the movies we watch coincidentally tie together somehow. This week, the theme is SEX! We watched Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge, Scream Queen, Crash, and the outlier was Max Reload and the Nether Blasters. For the main features, we watched Manhunter and then promptly became the authoritative experts on Step Up 2 The Streets. Should it be read as "Step Up 2: The Streets" or "Step Up to the Streets?" Tune in to find out!

B-List Special Ep.001

Darcy and Devon from Dead Prairies Productions talk B-List horror. We talk about some of our favorite experiences with B-List movies, video rental stores and horror conventions. Devon's B-List pick is Leprechaun which you can stream on Tubi, Darcy's B-List pick the elusive Frankenstein's Army which can be rented on YouTube. If you like this episode let us know, we could make this a regular thing. Huge thank you to Alien To The Ignorant for allowing us to use their song Change Caused Tragedy as the intro and outro for this episode

Episode 92 - Reve Edosipe Tseb

Jen's podcasting ability continues to decline and Darcy is forced to carry the show. However, we did watch some fun stuff this week. From outside "the Collection," we watched The Wolf of Snow Hollow, Love and Monsters, Class Action Park, Troll 2, and Under ConTroll. Then for the main features we watched two movies that are mostly set in shopping malls: Dawn of the Dead and Clueless.

Episode 91 - Garmuc! I Choose You!

This week there is something wrong with Darcy and Jen is unusually jaded. We discuss Head of the Family, Antebellum, Save Yourselves! and Leprechaun. Actually, we don't really discuss Leprechaun so much as Jen just berates it. Then for our main feature we review Pokemon: Mewtwo Returns as well as Insomnia.

Episode 90 - Manbearpig!

This week has been quite the ride for us movie wise. We started with Glenn Danzig's Verotika, then dove into Barbie and Kendra Save the Tiger King, both of which you should definitely watch. Then Darcy watched The Keep by himself and it sounds like that was for the best, and then we watched 1979's Prophecy together. This one is a sleeper and might as well be the main feature of the episode for us, so definitely check it out on Youtube. For the actual main feature, we watched From Hell, and The Onion Movie.
