Really Awful Movies: Ep 282 – Motel Hell



On this episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast, the excellent Motel Hell!

This is a hicksploitation classic from the 80s, smack dab in the middle of the Golden Era of horror (at least in our estimation, and we hope yours too).

Rory Calhoun stars as Farmer Vincent, whose farm produces “Farmer Vincent Fritters,” which are sourced from mystery meat (you shouldn’t have to take too many guesses to find out what that means).

Often thought of as a satire of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Psycho, this leisurely charmer is a fun one.

Vincent, along with business partner and sibling Ida, lure unsuspecting folks to their motel, and subsequently murder them.

The plot isn’t overly detailed.

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!)
