Really Awful Movies: Ep 264 – Ice Cream Man

Some 90s horror for your listening pleasure this episode: Ice Cream Man. This Clint Howard starrer is an odd duck, and is about, not surprisingly, a killer ice cream man.

A neighborhood kid goes missing. Suddenly, all signs point to the local oddball eccentric, the man in the white uni who brings treats to all the kids.

Ice Cream Man also features Jan Michael Vincent as a cop, in as lazy a performance as you’ll ever see, as well as Olivia Hussey (Black Christmas, etc).

The cast of kids is what makes this film so joyous. There’s Tuna, the fat one, Johnny, Heather, and the bizarrely named, Small Paul.

The 90s was a rough time for the horror genre, but it’s nice to see a few quirky gems like this one.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 261 – 7 Valentine’s Day Horror Films

On this special bonus episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast, Valentine’s Day Horror Films.

Today is a day to reignite your passions and tell loved ones they’re loved. But also, there’s no better occasion than to dive into what we love: horror movies! Horrors are oft-known to be set around holidays, whether it’s New Year’s Evil, Silent Night, Deadly Night, April Fool’s Day, etc. And there’s no reason this faux-holiday should be any different. After all, there’s already red liberally spread around, right? How about add some squibs to that, and make things blood spattered?

As the poster tag-line for Valentine says, “love hurts.” While this is undoubtedly true, you can learn to love again. But you’ve only got one life to live, and that’s something to remember when some nasty serial killer is bearing down on your. The Canadian classic, My Bloody Valentine, is called that for a reason.
