Really Awful Movies: Ep 395 – The Deadly Spawn

This week on the podcast, the uber low budget New Jersey regional horror, The Deadly Spawn.

Filmed for a meagre 30k back in 1980, and taking two years to complete, this creature feature is a super fun flick for fans of goofy sci fi flicks. It’s spirited, and cheap ‘n’ cheerful.

A meteor crash lands into a bucolic landscape (or, a matte painting). And gooey creatures make themselves at home, in a Victorian home, much to the chagrin of the occupants.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 394 – Crimes of the Future

On this week’s episode, Crimes of the Future. Let’s get gooey and check in with this David Cronenberg effort, a real return to form.

Crimes of the Future is a 2022 science fiction body horror drama film written and directed by David Cronenberg. The body horror flick stars Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) and Kristen Stewart. The film follows a performance artist duo who perform surgery to audiences, in a future world where human evolution has accelerated.

The film marks Cronenberg’s return to the science fiction and horror genres for the first time since eXistenZ (1999). Unfortunately, it bombed at the box office. Don’t let that stop you!
