Scott’s friends perk up when they realize his abnormalities are actually useful to them (it’s poor Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer all over again).
Is Teen Wolf a painfully dated ’80s embarrassment like fanny packs, acid washed jeans, or Reaganomics?
Werewolf rodeos never really caught on as a national pastime.
One of the best werewolf movies in recent years.
“Wolf accomplishes what I previously thought was impossible: it actually features Jack Nicholson being restrained.”
Is this movie a graveyard smash, or an undead turkey starring the Happy Madison goons?
“As long as it’s not Twilight, it’s hard to mess up vampires, right? Well… don’t count on that.”
After an awesomely successful Kickstarter campaign, the Fear Fan is back! This time, he’s reviewing the lesser-known 1981 film Wolfen. What do you get when you take a a police procedural, Native American mysticism, and a feral, nude Edward James Olmos, and put them in a blender? We have no idea, but we’re about to find out!
We look at the criminally underrated and unloved monster mash that is Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale in Van Helsing! With the help of his friend Harold and questions from the public, Tom delves into the history of the Van Helsing character, the various attempts at a sequel, and why Van Helsing is the archangel version of James Bond. Featuring a special guest appearance by Dracula!
It’s the first video of Sofie’s Twilight Month (which will probably now last into April) as she reviews the final Twilight film, Breaking Dawn: Part 2. It’s the end of a saga… Yeah, a saga, sure.
The vampires are back, and more sparkly than ever. Will Bella be able to get over Edward? Will Jacob give up shirts altogether? Do you even care? Il Neige sure doesn’t, but that’s not gonna stop him from sitting through this two-hour mess of a sequel.
In this episode, we take a look at the classic ’80s horror/comedy An American Werewolf in London, directed by John Landis. We’ll look at the Landis’s inspirations and what effect the film had on his future directing career, including Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. We’ll also look at the Oscar-winning makeup effects by Rick Baker, and why they make the film so unforgettable.
Together, the two luchadores battle the Mexican Dracula, vampire women, the Wolfman, a cyclops, the Mummy, and the Frankenstein monster. It’s cheesy, ridiculous fun. In other words, a Santo film.
gooder: (adj) a movie that goes from bad to awesome because of at least one single key moment.
Watch the genesis of Friday Night Fright Flicks with this episode from the archives of The Count Jackula Show, guest-starring the Horror Guru and Film Renegado! Count Jackula (with help from his alter-ego Count Wiso-ula) counts down his 13 favorite movies that are so bad, they’re awesome, including The Green Slime, Toxic Avenger, Jason X, Chillerama, and many more!
Phil reviews the unbelievably awful An American Werewolf in Paris, the sequel to the John Landis horror classic An American Werewolf in London, and the poster child for sequels that completely miss what made the original great.
Count Jackula and Horror Guru go on a killing spree due to the last entry of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn: Part 2, starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner.
Stephenie Meyer’s novel gets split into two movies to extract an additional billion dollars from Twi-hards who line up for these things no matter how tedious or repulsive they get. And this one is certainly repulsive, as Bella gets pregnant with a half-vampire baby who treats her womb like a bouncy castle, Edward performs a Cesarean with his teeth, and Jacob embarks on an 18 year quest to groom his future wife.
Sofie is joined by the Fear Fan, who gets a bit uncomfortable with her… eccentric behavior. But that doesn’t stop the two from reviewing The Wolf Man starring Lon Chaney, Jr as the poor cursed soul who becomes a werewolf, and Claude Rains as his strict father.
Together with the Porn Critic, Sofie witnesses such exciting things as… a marriage! And a pregnancy! And pedophilia! Oh, Twilight, what will you come up with next?
Edward decides his kind is too dangerous to be around Bella, so he goes into contrived self-exile, leaving Bella to screech like a maniac for months before finally finding comfort in hot werewolf Jacob. Alas, Sofie’s endless mocking of the movie earns her the wrath of Pia (played by Sofie Liv), a scantily-clad airhead who breaks into Sofie’s house to share a love of all things Twilight!
