Todd was thrilled to finally introduce Craig to the official Troma catalog, and he selected one of their most recent horror-comedy-musicals that more or less accurately represents the notorious low-budget movie house’s wacky, no-holds-barred, punk sensibilities. What did Craig think of it? Have a listen to find out.
We love to do kid-oriented horror movies, and this week we turn once again to Tobe Hooper’s oeuvre for this modern update of the 1953 B-movie classic. It’s not the best, but it’s not the worst. Come join us for an in-depth review.
Jeepers Creepers 3 sprung on us suddenly last year, seemingly out of nowhere. With a limited release in theaters for one day only, and an almost immediate release on VOD, we had high hopes for this film, based on the previous two. Sadly, we had to join the chorus of mixed reviews. But admittedly, it’s complicated. Major thanks to the many people who requested this one as we wrap up request month!
Normally we would wait until winter time to review a film about Nazi snow zombies, but we got several requests for this one. So we decided to throw it up during request month. And we both agree that this one is even better than the original. Non-stop fun from beginning to end, with an original plot and a funny cast, Dead Snow 2 gives Shaun of the Dead a run for its money.
Request month continues with this early 90’s (and it shows) film with an all-African-American cast and crew, produced by Troma, and featuring Samuel Jackson and Kadeem Hardison from A Different World. It may be a bit plodding, but at least it plods with some style.
