Really Awful Movies: Ep 324 – Frozen

Their lives are literally hanging in the balance…from a chair lift. Frozen is a ski-themed horror that’s capably put together.

A bunch of friends try and get in one more run (maybe courtesy of one of those ominous Black Diamond-designated hills that puts the fear of god into the authors of this site) and a staffing screw up results in the lift being shut down and them stranded amidst the icy coldness.

On this episode of the podcast….Winter…is…here. And much of Canada is already blanketed by the stuff.

Horror films set in winter are numerous, and there’s a cottage industry of Santa-related horrors like Silent Night, Deadly Night and Santa’s Slay. Frozen is a survivalist / animal attack hybrid that fails when it comes to the latter and eminently succeeds as the former.

Anyway, stay warm, grab an extra blanket and enjoy the latest episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast!

Really Awful Movies: Ep 323 – Lionheart

JCVD! Jean Claude Van Damme is another focus once again on the podcast, one of our favorites.

Here he is, portraying French Foreign Legion AWOL-er, Lyon.

The flick has one of our favorite action movie themes: the furtive underground world of unsanctioned fisticuffs!

Hardscrabble men gather under bridges, in dismal urban locales (and occasionally in squash courts!) to battle it out, pre-UFC. And all to earn an honest buck. If you define honest as under the table black market highly illegal and amoral activity.

It’s like Fight Club, but with a Don King-esque fixer chick in a little black dress!

Lionheart builds on Van Damme’s uber charisma, and truth be told, there’s not too much of a story arc to this. Still, there’s ass kicking aplenty. And that’s key, right?

On this episode, discussion on who the best actor is among the one-named action superstars your Arnolds, Chuck Norrises, etc, etc. Join us!

And don’t forget to pick up a copy of our action movie book, Mine’s Bigger Than Yours! The 100 Wackiest Action Movies. If you’re a fan of Cannon films, Steven Seagal, bizarre Philippines-lensed chop socky, you’ll love this tome!
