Really Awful Movies: Ep 298 – Mortuary

On this episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast: Mortuary! This is an underseen 1983 quasi-slasher starring a young Bill Paxton.

There’s a mortuary (duh) and two young guys start poking around. One of them goes missing. The other? He goes to the roller rink to ask where he might’ve gone. Ah yes, seeking answers from the oracle that is the disco roller rink

His girlfriend’s father was murdered. And she suspects that his demise has something to do with the local mortuary.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

There’s a figure clad in black, skulking around with a trocar, the cannula device used to extract bodily fluid. Jeez, I wonder who the perp could be? Could they be in some way connected to…a mortuary?

An all-over-the-map misfire, there are still fun elements to this one.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 297 – Friend Request

Marina is a social outcast at a made-up California university. She sits in the back of her psych class and pulls her hair out, and wears a hoodie and is gothed up – so you know she’s messed up.

She’s at the heart of Friend Request, this being just an expression as this is a movie with no heart, or soul, or passion for that matter. What we describe as “aggressively mediocre.”

Marina soon starts stalking a popular girl on social media, through a Facebook-like platform (it’s like Facebook and not actual Facebook, as Mark Zuckerberg did not take too kindly to this movie using his copyright).

Tied into all this is some witchcraft backstory, some unspectacular deaths, some cyber-bullying. It all amounts to a big, fat zero.
