Really Awful Movies: Ep 293 – Nightmare Beach

Now the weather outside is frightful, but 80s teen horrors are so delightful.

Join us, as we dive headfirst into Nightmare Beach (also released as Welcome to Spring Break), an American-Italian slasher directed by the incomparable Umberto Lenzi and Harry Kirkpatrick.

This might be the fourth Lenzi flick we’ve talked about here on the Really Awful Movies Podcast. He’s just so darned entertaining regardless if he’s tackling giallo, cannibal movies, demented zombie films, or straightforward (to the extent that this is) slashers.

Manatee Beach is being plagued by a spate of murders. And it turns out, the local leather-clad bikers aren’t to blame (this time). There’s a killer on the loose. And, to quote Jim Morrison, there’s a killer on the road. His brain may be squirming like a toad. He’s got a helmet, and also an electrified ride that he uses to zap Floridians.

This Nightmare Beach has all the makings of…well, something. It’s a turd. But a delightful turd. It’s just so much fun.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 292 – Madman

On this episode of the podcast, the shaggy dog horror, MADMAN.

Yes, it’s a rather paint-by-numbers “maniac in the woods movie”.

There are campers. There are counsellors. There are woods. There are tales of things lurking in the shadows. Urban legends. Some unique kills.

Still, there’s enough to commend this silly effort, which has drawn unfavourable comparisons to the likes of Friday the 13th and The Burning.
