Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021) - Movie Review - Episode 208

3/25/2021
This week we have some earth shattering news about the future of the podcast to couple with our earth shattering review of Zack Snyder's Justice League. We felt this movie was so important to review that we bumped our review of Hannibal to next week. You hear that DC?! We pushed a conversation about Anthony Hopkins eating brains for you. So join us as we unpack this 4 hour long epic (and believe me the behind the scenes drama of this is an epic unto itself) that details the battle between...

Leprechaun 2 (1994) - Movie Review - Episode 207

3/16/2021
Happy St. Patrick's Day to our Irish friends and fans and of course to those special fans who happen to "pretend" to be Irish every St. Paddy's Day. In honor of the holiday, we are cracking open the second entry into what arguably might be the last gasp of the slasher era. We're talking about 1994's Leprechaun 2. A movie that literally has nothing in common with the original, other than Warwick Davis carrying the entire film due to the absence of the real star of the original, Jennifer...

Bloodsucka Jones vs. The Creeping Death - Indie Film Review - Episode 205

2/27/2021
This week, after our review last week of the turducken of terrible that was Neil Breen's "Pass Thru" , we here at The Cinema Psychos Show needed a bit of a pallet cleanser. And wouldn't you know it, we got one in the form of the Justin Armaos' new release, "Bloodsucka Jones vs. The Creeping Death." A movie that serves as not only a comedic play off of blaxsploitation cinema but also zombie movies (which has our interest already peaked as we are all based in Pittsburgh: The Zombie Capital of...

Pass Thru - The 4th Horseman of the Breenpocalypse - Episode 204

2/13/2021
This week, we are opening the 6th seal of terrible cinema and unleashing the 4th horseman of the Breenpocalypse with Neil Breen's "Pass Thru". A movie that some say isn't really a movie but more or less a collection of clips and drone footage from the raving of a sundrenched madman bent on solving the worlds problems by "cleansing" the world of bad people. So yea....It's a fun movie for the whole family....if that family is perhaps the Manson family. So grab your finest booze and strap...

1/28/2021

The battle is of course over HBO Max's decision to release their 2021 blockbuster films on streaming as well as through traditional theaters. We get in a heated debate that tackles everything from whether studios will continue streaming after the pandemic ends, whether consumers will go back to theaters, and what movie...

1/20/2021
This week, we are saying one final good bye to the unending maelstrom of misery and depression that was 2020 with PART 2 of our Year End Retrospective. There weren't a great deal of movies that came out during 2020 as we all were trying to divert our attention away from the doom scrolling with Tiger King or trying to master chess after watching Queen's Gambit. But the few offerings we did get deserve a little love......or hate. So we'll be breaking down our picks for the best and worst...

Black Christmas (1974) - Movie Review- Episode 200

12/25/2020
This week, we are breaking through the episode 200 barrier in Yule tide style. We are reviewing what arguably might be the very first slasher film....no we aren’t talking about John Carpenter’s 1978 classic, Halloween. We’re talking about the 1974 Canadian Xmas murder-fest Black Christmas. A movie that gives us party girl Margot Kidder before she became Lois Lane and one of the first roles to feature John Saxon as a police detective; a role that Saxon would literally be in for the remainder...

Scrooged (1988) - Movie Review - Episode 199

12/6/2020
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. Even though 2020 has done a number on all of us, we here at The Cinema Psychos Show refuse to let it take away our celebration of odd ball holiday classics. And no movie is more odd ball enough than the 1988 Bill Murray classic, SCROOGED. A film that marked the return of Murray into a leading comedic role (we'll ignore that Little Shop of Horrors cameo), Scrooged retells the classic Charles Dicken's story, "A Christmas Carol" through a...

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles - Movie Review - Episode 198

11/24/2020
This week is Thanksgiving here in the US which means that it is time for us to pull out one of our Thanksgiving horror classics to review......hmmm aside from Thankskilling which we already did, there doesn't seem to be any left. Might as well turn to what everyone considers a classic Thanksgiving movie, The 1987 John Candy and Steve Martin road movie, "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles". A movie that broke John Hughes out of the box of making movies consisting of 80's yuppie teenagers and...

A movie that might just be Mr. Bean's only serious role and oh yea is 100% nightmare fuel. Dead parents...check. Horrifying witch practical makeup....double check. A...

11/9/2020
This week, we are back after a little Halloween hiatus with a little retrospective just as we leave spooky season and march toward the mass consumer orgy that is Xmas with a tale of toys gone bad....well more like movies about a single toy gone bad. We are of course referring to academy award winning actor, Brad Dourif portrayal of the "all rubber" serial killer in a matching jumper, Chucky in The Child's Play Series. The series is a rollercoaster ride of camp, gore, and a bit of voodoo from...

This week, just like mixing our peanut butter with our chocolate, we are doing a deep dive into our top 5 favorite Comedic Horror Movies! Comedic Horror movies might arguably be one of the hardest genres to try and crack with very few successes.

This week, we are diving head first into spooky season by analyzing what arguably might be the lowest point of The Alien Franchise (not counting Resurrection, Alien Vs. Predator, Prometheus.....or Alien Covenant) and what might be the lowest point of David Fincher's career. We are of course talking about 1992's Alien 3. A movie that takes all the things you loved about Alien and Aliens and dumps it into a toilet bowl full of brown depressing poo. A movie that suffers from some of the most...

This week, Brian and John are again running the show sans Laine, sparing her the horror of reviewing what arguably might be the biggest budget B movie of all time. A movie filled with an equal amount of hollywood intrigue, financial shinnanigins, and lawsuits.....and oh yea the movie is hot hot garbage. We are of course talking about the one and only (thank god) film about gold hungry aliens: Battlefield Earth. A favorite drinking game at every film school, Battlefield Earth was billed as...
