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 391 – Head of the Family

Head of the Family!

Who doesn’t like a low budget exploitation horror? Especially one with an obvious double entendre like that.

This episode of the podcast is all about the legendary Charles Band, a man responsible for a huge swath of the movies we’ve binged for years and years, and who directed this cheap and cheerful mid-90s hybrid sci fi zombie horror.

On this episode, a breakdown of disembodied head movies from The Brain that Wouldn’t Die to Re-Animator, Full Moon Features, the name “Otis” and its prominence in horror, particularly among trashy hicksploitation villains, the home movie scene in the 80s, the changing nature of how we consume films, and much, much more!
