Really Awful Movies: Ep 200 – Really Awful Movies retrospective



On this episode, the Really Awful Movies 200th episode!

We look back at our jangled nerves when recording our first episode, how we began chatting about Yor: Hunter from the Future, and very basic mic setup we had for our first show.

We talk about our backgrounds growing up in Richmond Hill, Ontario. And how the (pending) legalization of marijuana has affected the show.

We started out as a blog, ReallyAwfulMovies.com. We talk about how the blog (and subsequent podcast) came to be named. Has the name helped or hurt our cause?

The Really Awful Movies Podcast has become a success!

The name has caused some issues. Some horror luminaries have taken umbrage with the name, as it seems pejorative. We talk about meeting and speaking with Robert Englund, A Michael Baldwin, Tom Savini, Victoria Price and many more!

Tune in, and check out our next 100 episodes! Now with much better sound quality!

 


Snowbeast



snowbeastposterFor some, the phrase “made-for-TV movie” is synonymous with crap. Those people are what we might call…”correct.” However, much like a basketball whipped overhand from half-court, there is the occasional one that connects and scores. Snowbeast, is not one of those. Duel is one of those.

However, we are talking Snowbeast, an abominable Yeti creature feature featuring none other than the hulking Bo Svenson (not playing the creature).

This 1977 production has a pretty game cast, but also some really odd romantic sub-plotting that our listeners will definitely get a kick out of.

The plot couldn’t be any more simple: a monster is attacking skiers in a Colorado resort town. And it’s up to the resourceful townsfolk to, uh, cover it up…and then do something about it when it gets to the point where they finally do a cost / benefit analysis and realize dozens of deaths aren’t good for local tourism.

It’s Jaws, on the slopes. Join us!
