The Cinema Psychos Show

IT'S FINALLY SPOOKY SEASON!!! This week we are kicking off our favorite time of the year with the review of the wacky b movie, Deadly Friend from 1986 with our new friend, special effects makeup artist, Sarah Schuck! The film by Horror Maestro, Wes Craven serves as his pallet cleanser from the world of Freddy by giving us the world of B B the robot and an equally robotic Kristy Swanson in her first role. Known the world over for a very specific basketball-beheading meme, Deadly Friend is a weird anomaly that at one moment feels like an after school special about teen love then morphs into a...

Do you remember 1995?  We sure do!  This week as we close out Dystopian, 90's, Sci-fi, Cyber Punk Month, we are revisiting what people thought teens would do with a Packard Bell PC that cost 2k from Circuit City in 1995....HACK THE PLANET!  We're talking about of course Hackers starring Johnny Lee Miller and Angelina Jolie.  A movie that we think has some kind of a message, but gets kinda muddled by things like 30 year old actors pretending to be teenagers, Jolt Cola, roller blades, and some pretty insane fashion choices.  But is this movie as bad as some reviewers...

This week, we are heading again to 1995 to review Johnny Mnemonic. A movie that feels a bit like a chipotle burrito, jam packed filled with brain implants, yakuza assassins, a global pandemic created by "technology", a cyborg dolphin, and yea....Henry Rollins is in it too. But is this movie really all that terrible? Are there any redeeming qualities to a film that has the pedigree of William Gibson's writing and the direction of artist Robert Longo? Well get ready to jack in as we tackle the world of cyber implants, VR Internet, and Johnny Mnemonic! DISCORD!!!  Take the conversation...

The Cinema Psychos Show

Continuing on with our 90's Cyber Punk Dystopian Future Month, we've got another cult classic from Virtuosity Director, Brett Leonard. It's the 1992 VR Thriller, The Lawnmower Man starring awesome character actor, Jeff Fahey and a not-quite-James Bond; Pierce Brosnon. This movie tried to show us the 2 true horrors of the 90's, 32 Bit VR games and DRUGS!!! Lawnmower Man tells the story of Jobe, a hapless lawnmower man who just wants to be smart enough to read the text boxes in the Cybo Man comic books he collects and to maybe kiss the town floozie, Marnie. It also tells the story of Dr....

What happens when the big bad in a VR video game made up of 150 maniacs escapes to the real world "future" of 1999 as a nano bot blue goo android?  You get the shoot e'em up chase movie, Virtuosity starring Denzel Washington and a pre-gladiator Russell Crowe (which this might actually be his best performance outside of the 2020 film "Unhinged").  Joining us in VR land this week are fellow movie podcasters, Joe La Scola and Sean O'Rourke of Movie Dumpster.  We'll try to tackle the hard ethical questions in this movie such as how a Kevin J. O'Connor's "desires" are completely to...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, we are joined by The Art Director for The upcoming Eerie Horror Fest, Monster Mark Kosobucki as we review one of George A. Romero's early classics, The Crazies.  A movie that seriously has a totally different meaning in light of the past few years with the Covid-19 Pandemic, The Crazies is a tale of a small town in Western Pennsylvania that becomes infected by a bio weapon from the US Government and said government's attempt to quite it down to keep order.   This movie takes jabs at a government that at the time was in the midst of a crisis of credibility due to the...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, we are returning to our well of dark comedies and misunderstood misfit movies to analyze one of the darkest comedies to come out of the "edgy" and "extreme" 1990's- Very Bad Things.  A movie that plays to the trope of a bachelor party gone horribly horribly wrong and illustrates the lengths that people will go to avoid consequences.  Starring Daniel Stern of Home Alone fame, future Iron Man Director and Star Wars Savior John Favreau, and a very sinister Christian Slater, this movie was deridded by critics during it's original run, but is it really that awful?  ...

This week, we are reviewing the second half of the cinematic phenomena known as "BARBENHEIMER"!  And while Barbie was a celebration of a cultural icon going through an existensial conflict; Oppenheimer is very much the story of humanity's existential nightmare caused by the birth of the atomic bomb during World War 2.  Helmed by one of Cinema's biggest champions and featuring a massive cast of amazing actors, how does Christopher Nolan's nealry 3 hour long IMAX epic shake out and does it live up to the hype?   DISCORD!!!  Take the conversation further!  Come check...
