Really Awful Movies: Ep 141 – Scream

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since SCREAM.

The film’s hella fun, but polarizing, as some people aren’t as enamored with its self-referential, ironic tone.

Still, with a cast like that (C’mon, Barrymore/Cox/Campbell/Arquette) it’s still one for the ages and the iconic killer has stood the test of time, even if he doesn’t kill with the same ruthlessness and unstoppability of a Mr. Voorhees or a Mr. Myers.

A look back at Ghostface, Wes Craven and the comedy horror of Scream on Ep 141 of the Really Awful Movies Podcast.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 126 – Eating Raoul

There are many ways to finance a dream restaurant – line of credit, bank loan, angel investors – but none of these include robbing people from the personal ads. Unless of course, it’s EATING RAOUL, a zany 1982 black comedy and brainchild of co-star Paul Bartel.

This film is rightly “a tasty comedy of bad manners.” The Blands, an uptight couple, find they can finance their dream boite by luring swingers to their LA homestead, murdering and then robbing them. They conspire with thieving locksmith Raoul, who helps them dispose of the bodies.

Terrific fun.
