Really Awful Movies: Ep 330 – BMX Bandits

On this week’s episode of the podcast, BMX Bandits! This one has a VERY young Nicole Kidman (in her second role, but first major one) and is directed by friend of the site, director Brian Trenchard-Smith.

In BMX Bandits, three kids happen upon some hidden walkie talkies/police scanners, stashed by some seedy bank robbers. Soon, the Bandits find themselves being chased on two fronts: by the thieves, but also by the cops, who need to get their hands on the devices as well.

BMX Bandits is a silly joy ride, full of bike chases through Sydney Harbour. The dialogue is whip-smart, the villains suitably bumbling, and the direction, action-packed.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 282 – Motel Hell

On this episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast, the excellent Motel Hell!

This is a hicksploitation classic from the 80s, smack dab in the middle of the Golden Era of horror (at least in our estimation, and we hope yours too).

Rory Calhoun stars as Farmer Vincent, whose farm produces “Farmer Vincent Fritters,” which are sourced from mystery meat (you shouldn’t have to take too many guesses to find out what that means).

Often thought of as a satire of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Psycho, this leisurely charmer is a fun one.

Vincent, along with business partner and sibling Ida, lure unsuspecting folks to their motel, and subsequently murder them.

The plot isn’t overly detailed.
