Really Awful Movies: Ep 288 – Jason X



Not to be confused with Malcolm X, we’re turning our eyes to Jason X! After all, it’s Friday the 13th folks.

This one features the Butcher of Camp Crystal Lake, Jason Voorhees, out in space. Why? Why not? (or more accurately, because someone in the studio green lit an absolutely godawful idea, that’s why).

This film has a lot of detractors. But in recent years, some of us have developed a soft spot for what is undeniably a bit of a turd.

Jason Voorhees is frozen cryogenically by devious Doc David Cronenberg. Then, 450 years into the future, space explorers revivify the killer. Bad move. Jeez, they learned not a single thing in the interceding 5 centuries.

MORONS!

Join us on this podcast discussion. And enjoy Friday the 13th as well.

 


Really Awful Movies: Ep 278 – American Psycho



Cold. Calculating. American Psycho is an infamous flick adapted from an even more infamous book.

On this episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast, a deep dive into the 2000 feature, starring the incomparable Christian Bale.

He plays Patrick Bateman (a surname allusion to Hitch’s Psycho). He’s a narcissistic manipulator enjoying the high life in Manhattan.

We chat about the book’s origins, the different actors attached to the film, the trio of high-profile directors, the locations, and the stockbroker profession.

Also in this episode, we talk Leo Di Caprio, Wolf of Wall Street, Maniac, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Batman, Tom Cruise, and The Machinist (it’s quite a smorgasbord!)
