EPISODE 113: OPERATION DANCE SENSATION (2003)

10/12/2018
More
It's another NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES PATREON SPECIAL, and that means something WEIRD! And, in this case, something GERMAN! Thanks to listener LARS for forcing us to watch the 2003 action-satire-gore-comedy OPERATION DANCE SENSATION, which has MASSIVE GUNS, endless NINJAS and an EPIC running time it doesn't quite deserve. But it's plenty violent, and has a snappy theme song, and that's good enough for us. GATHER YOUR FAMILY AND LISTEN!

EPISODE 112: PLAGA ZOMBIE: ZONA MUTANTA (2001)

9/15/2018
More
It's a NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES *FIRST*! A SEQUEL! Moe and Doug return to ARGENTINA to check out the mid-point of the beloved PLAGA ZOMBIE trilogy, and they LOVE IT! In fact, there's some discussion about whether this is the BEST NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES FILM EVER! But that's at the end. Before that, you'll have to enjoy hearing THE BOYS wax philosophic about beheadings, disembowlings and JOHN WEST! It's all that and a bag of chips, so what are you waiting for? START LISTENING, JERKS!

EPISODE 110: CARDS OF DEATH (1986)

8/3/2018
More
Does it get any better than a SOV horror that had a limited international release in the 80s finally getting released in North America 28 years later (thanks to Bleeding Skull)? No, it doesn’t! And CARDS OF DEATH isn’t just some boring obscurity, it’s weird as hell, and introduced the world to “Gunny” Gunther, the dumbest, angriest cop ever! And don’t get us started on the closing credits song! No-Budget Nightmares returns to its roots, and we couldn’t be happier. Want more of this goodness...

EPISODE 109: WHERE THE DEAD GO TO DIE (2014)

7/16/2018
More
Look, I'm going to be straight with you. This is a rough episode of No-Budget Nightmares. We didn't like the movie, which is just an unending parade of empty misery, and talking about it was just a tremendous drag. You'll hear how defeated we were by the end. However, if you've ever wanted to hear us be mentally and physically destroyed by a movie, this is the episode for you. It's the 2014 computer animated film WHERE THE DEAD GO TO DIE from director Jimmy ScreamerClauz. Don't say we didn't...

EPISODE 108: DRACULA (THE DIRTY OLD MAN) (1969)

6/14/2018
More
YOU ASKED FOR IT! YOU GOT IT! It's a Something Weird (and Moe Porne) favorite, 1969's DRACULA (THE DIRTY OLD MAN), featuring all manners of rubber bats, sexual assault, and a soundtrack full of lame jokes recorded to make up for its unusable original audio! You also get Irving Jackalman, sex through pants, and some of the most uncomfortable dirty talk you're likely to ever hear and uncontrollable laughter. Who could ask for anything more? It's No-Budget Nightmares!

EPISODE 107: BLOODY MUSCLE BODY BUILDER IN HELL (1995/2012)

5/25/2018
More
Take a splash of THE EVIL DEAD, a pinch of 1977's HOUSE (aka HAUSU), and a whole lot of BODY BUILDING and you have something resembling the Japanese microbudget horror comedy BLOODY MUSCLE BODY BUILDER IN HELL. Filmed on 8mm back in 1995, it wasn't completed until 2009 and didn't get an official release until 2012, and despite all those timeline shenanigans, it's still fun as HELL. Gory, funny, and packed with inspiration, it's something far more than a fan film. LISTENING TIME!

EPISODE 106: JESUS CHRIST: SERIAL RAPIST (2004)

5/2/2018
More
Look, we get it. That title is pretty rough. Also, this is a Bill Zebub film, so you know it's likely going to be awful. We at No-Budget Nightmares understand that some will be rightfully put off by such an extreme title, though the film in no way reflects the language of that title. There's no Jesus. There's no rape. Also, an HOUR of the movie is a SLIDESHOW OF IMAGES. SERIOUSLY. Dear lord. Anyway, we watched it, and now you get to hear us talk about it. It's a simply transaction. May god...

EPISODE 105: THE TAINT (2011)

4/18/2018
More
Exploding dongs. SO MANY EXPLODING DONGS. 2011's THE TAINT is a bad taste smörgåsbord, gleefully crossing the line at every opportunity with its unique mixture of quirky humor, bodily fluids, shockingly slick FX and a tremendous synth soundtrack. But IS IT ANY GOOD? Let your good friends Moe and Doug decide! Or not! We're not your parents! Also included is our big ROBOT NINJA announcement, so check that out. TIME TO LISTEN, JERKS!

EPISODE 104: WHO KILLED CAPTAIN ALEX? (2010)

4/3/2018
More
MOVIE! MOVIE! MOVIE! MOVIE! No-Budget Nightmares is BACK with Uganda's first action movie WHO KILLED CAPTAIN ALEX?, featuring Ugandan Bruce Lee (aka Bruce U!), "Kissed By a Rose", helicopter attacks, and NON-STOP action! Made for only $200, and featuring a feature length "Video Joker" commentary from VJ Emmie, it's an absolute marvel. EXPECT THE UNEXPECTABLE!

EPISODE 103: SCHIZOPHRENIAC: THE WHORE MANGLER (1997)

1/31/2018
More
After ANOTHER lengthy sabbatical, NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES RETURNS! For the first episode of 2018, Moe and Doug go deep on a film featuring murder, masturbation, necrophilia and ventriloquism! It's Ron Atkins' nutzo 1997 SOV classic SCHIZOPHRENIAC: THE WHORE MANGLER, featuring one of the most gloriously unhinged performances in microbudget cinema HISTORY. WE GOTTA GET STRONG SO WE CAN KILL THE WORLD!

EPISODE 102: SAMURAI VAMPIRE BIKERS FROM HELL (1992)

12/20/2017
More
HO HO HO! MERRY NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES CHRISTMAS! This year’s holiday special features Scott Shaw’s immortal SAMURAI VAMPIRE BIKERS FROM HELL, the film that brought the revolutionary concept of ZEN FILM-MAKING to the world, and one that somehow manages to be tedious, incomprehensible AND less than an hour long! Enjoy the opportunity to hear both Moe and Doug slowly lose their minds as they try to make sense of the plot, characters and stolen sound effects from DUMB AND DUMBER. IT’S A MIRACLE!...

It’s NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES: THE NEXT GENERATION! After crossing the 100th episode threshold, we’re back with 1991’s EXCEEDINGLY GORY SOV possession movie SOUL OF THE DEMON!

SIX YEARS. ONE HUNDRED MOVIES. It's been a long, strange, often baffling trip, but No-Budget Nightmares reaches episode ONE HUNDRED in STYLE with FOUR special interviews, a MYSTERY MOVIE for the ages, and a count-down of our very favorite NBN episodes.

9/26/2017
More
THE MARCH TO #100 CONTINUES! On this penultimate episode of NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES we toss our ENTIRE HISTORY in the WOODCHIPPER for a good ol' fashioned WOODCHIPPER MASSACRE! Jon McBride's 1988 black comedy classic features an incredible Casio keyboard soundtrack, wholesome slaughter and TOM, the oldest 12-year-old that has ever existed! THE END OF THE WORLD AS YOU KNOW IT IS RAPIDLY APPROACHING! Spend the apocalypse with MOE and DOUG!

EPISODE 98: TARTARUS (2005)

8/21/2017
More
The MARCH TO 100 continues with a return visit to the works of auteur DAVE WASCAVAGE, the director of NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES classics SUBURBAN SASQUATCH, FUNGICIDE and MALEVOLENT ASCENT! This time Moe and Doug delve into the long-awaited TARTARUS and get terrorized by the film’s vision of a CG hell full of TURD TABLES, terrifying OTTOMANS, and more UFOs than you can shake a stick at. It’s a MESS and WE LOVE IT! GIVE THE KIDS A COUPLE OF BUCKS AND TELL THEM TO STAY OUT LATE! It’s NO-BUDGET...

EPISODE 97: TERROR AT BAXTER U (2003)

7/31/2017
More
EVERYONE IN YOUR SEATS! On this episode of NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES, Moe and Doug are like school in summertime... NO CLASS! Also, a vicious CHUPACABRA is on the loose thanks to some potent Mexican sorcery. Students at BAXTER U are being dispatched in a variety of messy (off-screen ways), and it's up to a trigger happy lieutenant and a senior class of idiots - with the help of their not-at-all-suspicious teacher - to get to the bottom of the mystery. The whole thing is written (and stars!) Bill...

EPISODE 96: BIG MEAT EATER (1982)

7/18/2017
More
NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES returns with another Canuxploitation classic featuring ALIENS, ZOMBIES, NEW WAVE MUSIC, and LOTS MORE! It's 1982's BIG MEAT EATER and it's as crazy as a sci-fi/horror/comedy/musical gets, and - get this - it's actually pretty GOOD! A brief respite from the pain as we HURTLE DANGEROUSLY towards episode 100. Lots of LAUGHS, a few TEARS, and maybe, just maybe, you'll learn a little something. MEAT YOUR FATE!

It's the NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES debut of DAVID "ROCK" NELSON! Moe and Doug hop in the wayback machine to check out his epic (2 1/2 hour!) monster classic THE DEVIL ANT featuring Tom Savini, Forrest J. Ackerman, Roger Corman, Svengoolie, Conrad Brooks, John Russo and HILLARY CLINTON! By the end, you'll be going MAD! We're 95 episodes deep and there's NO GOING BACK NOW! Grab a cup of JAVA (with sugar) and some CHINESE FOOD, it's time to face the terrible, terrifying wrath of THE DEVIL ANT!

It's the ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE.. IN CANADA! Welcome to the NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES podcast, and we're looking at the first film in Brian Clement's MEAT MARKET trilogy featuring ZOMBIES, BUTTER TARTS, LUCHADORES, VAMPIRES and people dressed like IDIOTS. There's plenty of gore and pitiful acting, but also a big surprise: PORNOGRAPHY! Come for the gore, and stay for Moe and Doug getting endlessly confused about the cast, the plot, and pretty much everything else! LISTEN OR DIE.
