07/24/16 Episode 8: Goin' Coconuts (1978)



Donny and Marie Osmond are best-known for their charming 1976-1979 TV variety show and Hawaiian Punch commercials and lesser-known for their charming 1978 theatrically-released movie set in Hawaii.

Host Mike Spiegelman and special guest co-host Alyssa Westerlund discover why.

To their credit, there is a plot. And, yes, they play themselves.

07/10/16 Episode 6: "Rat Pfink A Boo Boo" (1966)



From Ray Dennis Steckler, the director of The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!? (1964) comes, well, Rat Pfink A Boo Boo (1966). I prefer the latter to the former. It's like some one burped out some crazy mid-60s burp. Watch it and see. One of my favorites. Only 67 minutes long.

Special guest Les Milton joins Mike Spiegelman as co-host.

07/03/16 Episode 5: Comin' at Ya! (1981)




Comin' at Ya! (1981) was the first 3D movie from the '80s, and its surprise success begat several copycats. Without this picture there would have never been Friday the 13th Part 3: 3D (1982), Amityville 3-D (1983), or Jaws 3-D (1983), let alone Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983). Effects includes flying bats, falling coins, paring apples, and most disturbingly, a naked baby.

This revenge story was shot in Spain by Django, Prepare a Coffin director Ferdinando Baldi. It premiered in America in July 1981, probably the only spaghetti Western theatrically released that month.

Mike Spiegelman and his old Bad Movie Night riffmate Ira Emsig watch it in 2D on YouTube.

Says Ira, "Every twelve minutes, they have to throw something at the camera."
