Really Awful Movies: Ep 293 – Nightmare Beach



Now the weather outside is frightful, but 80s teen horrors are so delightful.

Join us, as we dive headfirst into Nightmare Beach (also released as Welcome to Spring Break), an American-Italian slasher directed by the incomparable Umberto Lenzi and Harry Kirkpatrick.

This might be the fourth Lenzi flick we’ve talked about here on the Really Awful Movies Podcast. He’s just so darned entertaining regardless if he’s tackling giallo, cannibal movies, demented zombie films, or straightforward (to the extent that this is) slashers.

Manatee Beach is being plagued by a spate of murders. And it turns out, the local leather-clad bikers aren’t to blame (this time). There’s a killer on the loose. And, to quote Jim Morrison, there’s a killer on the road. His brain may be squirming like a toad. He’s got a helmet, and also an electrified ride that he uses to zap Floridians.

This Nightmare Beach has all the makings of…well, something. It’s a turd. But a delightful turd. It’s just so much fun.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 291 – Uninvited



On this episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast, we’re back in animal attack / natural horror territory. And why not? It’s our favorite place to be. There is a wealth of animals-ran-amok movies, and practically every species in the animal kingdom is represented.

Listeners can go WAY back in our catalog to check out Night of the Lepus, for example, a little movie that could about killer rabbits.

This one, however, is about a cat. And not just any cat, but a genetically manipulated lab, cat within a cat.

You’re invited to check out this podcast about Uninvited, which has the added bonus of having two of our favorite character actors acting the crap out of their roles: Clu Gulager and George Kennedy.
