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 the World). So join us this week as we take a look at the world of Bloodsucka Jones vs The Creeping...

The Cinema Psychos Show

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 yourselves in as we dive into the mind of Neil Breen with Pass Thru. PATREON! We've just launched our...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, we are tackling a topic that is tearing Hollywood apart. The guttaral street fight that has broken out between HBO Max and streaming services vs Movie Theaters. 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 theaters SHOULD do to compete in the post pandemic world where streaming might seriously threaten their...

The Cinema Psychos Show

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 examples of cinema to come out of the year that broke Hollywood. PATREON! We've just launched our...

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 of his career (literally he was a police detective in a nightmare on elm street too) . So lock...

The Cinema Psychos Show

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 modern parody that touches on everything from late 1980's obsession over television, income inequality,...

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 their problems, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles is the type of movie that serves up plenty of laughs (even...

This week, we are taking a look back at what might be one of the weirdest and most terrifying children's films that has probably led to the emotional scars for an entire generation of children.....no we aren't talking about Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory....we're talking about his 1990 follow up, The Witches! 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 plot that involves witches who murder children by turning them in mice.....triple check. Yup this movie...

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 the mind of Don Mancini. But how does this cavalcade of horrors from the cabbage patch doll from hell...
