028B Side Slop: Critters II
If Tremors and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes got busy and a made a furry monster baby... and that little jerk is hungry. That baby would be named Critters 2: The Main Course
026B Side Slop: Murder Rock
At the intersection of Dance, Prog Rock and Horror sits a lonely figure. His name is Fulci and he is ready to party. This week Jon is joined by the infamous Peter of Peter's Movy Nites fame to have a shared hallucination guided by "Brujo" Fulci who oversees as they bask on the Murder Rock and let its psychedelic fumes over take them.
023B Side Slop: It (2017)
Jason and Guest Mack of Super Movie Ball fame dive into the 2017 Remake of Stephen King's classic It. A film renowned mostly for having a title that is too short and for ruining clowns for a generation.
019B Side Slop: Critters
On a very special Side Slop Jon and Jason finally meet. It's like Cinema Slop has all been one long time travel episode of Doctor Who and we just finally were introduced after a years long romance. If that sort of sentimentality doesn't get you in the cockles... Wait! There's more! We also bring in Special guest Alisa. Her official duties as Jason's wife make the aforementioned romantic rendezvous a little awkward but to break up the tension we played Critter-ball. It's like soccer in that you try to kick the small round thing and Jon is bad at it!
Tony Todd does a great vanishing act in Shadowdbuilder but when he goes into the magic box with no mirrors where does he emerge? This week we find out that the answer is a tenement in Chicago.... lets check out Candyman!
Last time Michael Rooker was a cop in The Replacement Killers. Today he is a hired gun... for the Lord! That's right! We ARE watching the seminal breakthrough Bram Stoker classic Shadowbuilder. Old Rook has to stop an evil cabal of Catholic Satanists from plucking three hairs from the head of a stigmata-baby and chanting real loud at a couple of sticks summoning a sentient humanoid shadow-demon impersonating the space cowboy Spike from the spaceship Bebop to open the door to hell... ya follow?
014B Side Slop: Hush
Hush. It's not just a thing you say to babies anymore its also a home invasion horror movie that is inconsiderately telling a deaf woman to shut up with its title. In todays Side Slop special Guest Boots invades Jon's home movie watching habits to force Jon to use a Netflix. The results are messy and chaotic and theres a lot of messing with the clicker. Check it out.
012b Side Slop: Suspiria
Jon said to Jason one too many times "thats a Giallo thing" so now were gonna do a Giallo! In this weeks Side Slop we check out Suspiria a movie where a dance maverick uses her dance skills to buzz the witchy-tower of the stuffy dean. Thats close enough. Find out what Suspiria is all about at the same time as Jason. Check it out.
012 Corpse Mania
Last week we enjoyed what in hindsight was a completely uncontroversial and fun blaxploitation/James bond style globe hopping adventure starring Ni Tien as the cute as a button but deadly serious martial arts skilled sidekick of cleopatra Jones. Let’s hope this week things are just as cheerful and carefree as they were in Ms. Tien’s heroine kingpin busting days. We join the necrophilic adventures in progress in Corpse Mania
Claudia Christian handled herself commendably against the reanimated corpse of a rouge policeman last week so naturally we asked ourselves, "Self... how do you think Ms. Christian would fare against the most fabled beast of yore? (Dramatic Pause) The Lycanthrope! (Music cue)". Well if you, like some of us at Cinema Slop, have spent the last decade writing Cmdr. Susan Ivanova vs Hideous monster fan-fiction then you're in luck because we finally know the answer! This week... its The ultimate military officer vs. The Matron of Satan... Mom!
008 It’s Alive
Last week we found out that a corpse can be the most important plot point in a movie other then Weekend at Bernies. Since the corpse was so dang important we wanted to see what other acting gigs required those sorts of acting chops. This week we meet a very much alive Patrick McAllister in the delivery room where the babies are alive... and thats somehow an issue?
007 The Prophecy
We like Amanda Plummer and she was a weirdo Nun Last time in Freejack. This Week she's gone to the other side and confirmed all her beliefs to be true.. or not... theologically I'm not sure what we find out this week. We meet the devil and stuff but who knows what the hell this all means.. maybe you can figure out what The Prophecy is talking about?
This Week Special Guest Contributor Zac
005 Maximum Overdrive
Today we followed the garbagy pong of Emilio Estevez from Men at Work to a small highway truck stop where Emilio has gotten promoted all the way to line cook. Things start getting weird for our country diner when the earth goes through a comets tail... yep. Those two ideas are directly connected in Maximum Overdrive.
003 The Thing (1982)
After battling the forces of evil in San Fran Kurt Russell's Pork Chop Express has arrived at its final destination, the Arctic. It's a wintery hell-scape but old Kurt likes it just fine. Just don't mess with his shack, his scotch or his bodily autonomy. Let's sit back and watch...
