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.

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.


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