Really Awful Movies: Ep 373 – Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama

Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama. What a title, right? This is a wonderful, cheeky, low-budget effort that’s a creature feature and based around the infamous short story, The Monkey’s Paw.

Some nerds and some sorority pledges have to bust into a bowling alley to steal a trophy to prove their mettle. While inside, they encounter an imp, but not just any imp: a wish-granting imp!

And this imp, ain’t no wimp. Soon, some of the sorority sisters are turned into rapacious she-demons and all hell literally breaks loose. Good times, good times!

Genre heads will get a kick out of the cast, which includes Scream Queen Linnea Quigley, but also Robin Rochelle, who starred in Slumber Part Massacre and American Ninja 4 before her untimely, young passing.

Tune into this one, which was distributed by the legendary Charles Band, whose book I’m reading now.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 357 – Paganini Horror

On this week’s episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast, not enough sax and violins together, but plenty of the latter, as we visit Italian horror and Paganini Horror.

The plot revolves around a failing female rock band, whose manager is beside herself about their inability to drum up, so to speak, a hit. Desperate, she solicits a strange piece of music, via the group’s producer called Le Streghe, aka, The Witches.

It’s a long lost piece by the eponymous and infamous in some circles, Italian composer and musician, Niccolo Paganini.

Paganini, like Robert Johnson much later, apparently sold his soul to the devil in order to totally shred on his instrument. Ah, the classic Faustian bargain horror. Join us. Grab your bow, rosin it up, and play along with.

Is this movie a Stradivarius, or is more of a cheap dime-store fiddle? You tell us!
