Bad Movies We Watched this Week. This is a recurring segment on our show, the Really Awful Movies Podcast.
On this week’s episode: Hide and Go Shriek discussed. It was a spur-of-the-moment blind rental from one of the few remaining video stores left in Toronto (sad, so sad).
It starts with a panoramic view of a beaten down neighborhood — so far so good —and then it veers into drag queen / prostitute territory!
However, Hide and Go Shriek pretty soon becomes your typical teen slasher film. Eight teens begin to get picked off by a mysterious killer, which is pretty par for the course.
The other film on the docket is Alien Abduction. It’s got two can’t miss words in its title, “alien” and “abduction.”
It’s a sci fi flick that features a military hospital that deprograms people who think they’ve been abducted by aliens. That’s a pretty darn fantastic premise for a film. However, it’s super super cheap and there’s a weird central vacuum type cranial surgery patients are subjected to.
