Hey everyone! Welcome to another episode of Motion Picture Meltdown! We're finishing up our theme of this month of "Non-Monsters" with a couple of horrible movies! We know you're sad to see the theme end, but next week is our Halloween special, where our old co-host Mark Hinto will be joining us for a couple of Halloween themed movies. Anyway...this week's episode is Phil, Dehart and myself roasting through Stephen King's The Mangler as well as the heaping pile of poo known as The Shaft(Or...Down?). In this episode, you will hear us discuss the reasons these movies get made, we talk about how effective giving exorcisms with a sledgehammer would be, and we talk about just how dangerous factory machinery really is. Enjoy!
Hello everyone! Hope you're having an awesome October! We're continuing our theme of "Non-Monsters" with a couple of creature features where the monsters are some of the cutest and cuddliest animals you can think of! Phil, Dehart and I roast through the 1972 cult classic Night of the Lepus as well as the newer and surprisingly good Black Sheep. In this episode you'll hear me talk about my favorite movie transformations, you'l hear Philip and I discuss our distaste for tanks for centipedes and spiders, and for once, we don't spoil a movie. Enjoy!
Hello everyone! We at Motion Picture Meltdown hope you're having a great month of October! To continue our monthly theme of "non-monsters", we are joined by our friend Robert to talk about some RIDICULOUS horror movies about things that shouldn't be able to kill you. Philip, Dehart, Robert and myself go through Deathbed: The Bed That Eats as well as work out the kinks with the 80's horror film, Death Spa(Witch Bitch...?) In this episode you will hear us select the most frightening house-hold items, we discuss the dangers of forgetting that you made a movie, and decide that "Witch Bitch" might be the worst name ever for a movie. Enjoy!
Happy October everyone! Welcome to another episode of Motion Picture Meltdown! This month we're going with the theme of murderous monsters that would NEVER be murderous monsters. To kick off October, Dehart, Phil and myself roast through a couple of killer plant movies. We go through the 1978 cult classic Attack of the Killer Tomatoes as well as the science fiction classic based on a book, The Day of the Triffids. In this episode you'll hear Phil discuss the fact that you don't need to add killer plants to being blind for scary factor, we discuss what we think is the most dangerous plant, and once again complain about movie covers that have nothing to do with the movie. Enjoy!
Hey everyone! Welcome to the final Not-So Superhero September episode of Motion Picture Meltdown! To close out the month, we welcome our friend Sean Moriarty...one of the co-hosts of Nerds on Film. This week, Sean joins Phil, Dehart, and myself as we discuss a couple team-based superhero movies. We roast through the never-released Roger Corman presented Fantastic Four, as well as the the team-based 90's hit, Mystery Men. In this episode, you'll hear us talk about Mr. Fantastic's REAL special powers, we cross-examine the similarities between The Thing and Raphael, and we discuss how saying things backwards is not only wise, but awesome. Enjoy!
