It's less than that and has no meat or bones at all to really turn an episode on it though?

I guess it'd be interesting from the perspective of what happened behind the scenes but it'd be less interesting from just a sheer bad movie perspective IMO, it's just a movie that's clearly all chopped up and incomplete
I'd also say it's one of those movies to get trapped in an internet critic feedback loop where everyone outraced themselves to talk about how it was the worst. comic. book. ever. when it just felt sad/empty/incomplete to me and had the IMO unfortunate effect of killing Josh Trank's career before it really got a chance to breathe

The first half of FF2015 is pretty good, honestly. Solid body horror and good performances all around. Last half is.. not good.

Unlike most "worst. movies. ever.", where the internet continually harps on it, it was basically forgotten shortly after it came out.

WHM needs to do more of the off the wall superhero movies that came before the big Marvel boom. The Shadow was a really fun episode with a surprising amount of insane concepts/actions going on in the background. Something like the The Phantom or Blankman would be right up their ally.

When they run out of horror franchises for the Spooktacular, they could do an On-Screen about The Munsters Today.

(There's what, Nightmare on Elm Street, Texas Chainsaw Massacre... and that's it, isn't it?)

man my biggest point of contention with an episode is their mockery of New Nightmare, which was the only good Nightmare on Elm Street sequel. Luckily, I know that It's Okay To Like a Movie.

i would love to see them do Texas chainsaw massacre 3D, it came out 3-4 years ago and it tried to make leather face and the evil cannibal family good guys and the people who did mob justice on a pack of inbreed monsters as baddies. but it too new for them unless they do it on some live show or if they just straight up break the rule.

Don't worry, there's a shockingly high number of horror films that spawned bloated franchises with both insane and pitiful sequels. Off the top of my head there's Hellraiser which I'm sure they've mentioned on a few episodes, The Howling (Crossover with werewolves and things?), Romero's of the dead films, that one with the killer puppets (the puppet master?) there were like six of them they even had a Freddy versus Jason style crossover. Oh and Tremors those last are particularly horrifying. :rimshot:

I genuinely enjoy the first two Wishmaster flicks, but I'd love to hear the gang rip into 'em. 3 and 4 not so much, if only because then they would have to watch Wishmaster 3 and 4, and I wouldn't inflict that on my worst enemy.

Yeah, that's the only Hellraiser I'd like them to cover. It's bad, but Doug Bradley hams it up in a hilarious way. After that, they aren't even Fun Bad.

Child's Play was awful but I want an episode on Bride of Chucky, even if it's not nearly as bad of a film.

Every time someone talks about The Wishmaster I keep thinking it's this movie:



It's also awful and the gang should do an episode on it. Or maybe a Very Special Animation Damnation

I watched that movie a lot as a kid

There was a videogame advertised in the trailers on the VHS that I really wanted to play back then, though I'm sure it's abysmal.

Not to mention the Witchcraft series, which went 13 movies strong, and slowly devolved from an entertaining mid-budget schlock-fest to full-on shot on shitteo.

"To be quite frank, Platinum sucks at making games. Vanquish was terrible and Metal Gear Rising: Revengance was so boring it put me to sleep."



Didn't like the Ghosts Can't Do It episode much. some nice bits but I couldn't follow the plot or who the characters were. That made it hard to follow. Maybe the movie was a mess but I think the team could have been a bit more disciplined and the nuttiness of the plot would have been effective. Too many tangents, a bit long.

My rebinge of the WHM archive has reintroduced me to The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking, which remains one of my favourite episodes. They're really good at explaining what's weird or bad about a movie without you having to watch it. A number of WHM episodes are on movies that aren't the typical trash fires that everyone in the Bad Movie Sphere knows about. They're the mediocre-to-bad failures that time forgot and when WHM does an episode on them, that's when they're skills really shine. I don't think WHM can truly have a bad episode because of how good they are.

Yeah I like it best when they cover mediocre movies that everyone thought were good at the time, like Face/Off and My Best Friend's Wedding.
