Johnny reviews the cult classic Z-grade slasher Sleepaway Camp! There’s a serial killer picking off campers one by one, and nothing (besides copious amounts of alcohol) will prepare you for the ending. On the plus side, there’s lots of hot pants and Daisy Dukes on display. On the minus side, they’re mostly worn by the guys.
This episode, Sofie is joined by Joey Tedesco to discuss a show they both hate with a passion: the 2012 animated series Ultimate Spider-Man, which has nothing to do with Marvel’s line of Ultimate comics, or its regular comics, or anything Spider-Man related for that matter.
If you’ve seen the first House of the Dead, you know it’s a terrible movie. This movie, on the other hand, is not. House of the Dead 2 is a sequel in name only, and it blows the first movie away.
In this episode, we take nearly one hour to look at the beloved live-action/animation hybrid Who Framed Roger Rabbit!

Yes, Baby Geniuses, widely considered one of the worst movies of all time, has not one, but two sequels, each worse than the last.

Planet Baab’s most admired astronaut Scorch Supernova is sent on a mission to a a notoriously dangerous planet, in an animated film that even fails at pop culture references. Enough said.
A geeky Ryan Phillippe (see his glasses?) goes to work for an evil software company that is totally not Microsoft, run by a murderous CEO played by Tim Robbins who is totally not channeling Bill Gates. Sexy nerd boys, product placement, scenery chewing, and Linux: what more could you want in a film?
In his Agony Booth debut, Il Neige takes a look at the fantasy adventure Eragon, a film based on a book written by a kid, for kids. It’s the Kidz Bop of Fantasy Literature!
