The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, Brian and John travel to the year 10191 the the world of Dune.  Being that Denis Villeneuve's masterpiece was recently released on HBO Max and theaters to rave reviews and serving as a visual effects schmorgasborg, we thought that instead of do a review on that movie that we take a look at the bizarre and hard to understand 1984, David Lynch version that gave us such wonderful moments like Sting in a triangle cod piece, Sir Patrick Stewart discussing that moods are for "cattle and love play", and of course the wacky wacky wacky Harkonnens.  So, grab a little bit of the...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, Brian and John are explorers in the further reaches of experience as we take a trip back to the year 1987 and review a film that serves as a perfect fit between this gap of time between Halloween and Thanksgiving; Clive Barker's Hellraiser.  A movie that is equal parts family drama (just like thanksgiving) and sadomascistic demons from beyond the grave.....see I told you it works for both holidays.  Hellraiser was a film that stuck out from the masked killers and dream demons from the 80's.  It presented something new, an intelligent monster that ultimately was not...

The Cinema Psychos Show

What happens when nostalgia for a horror book series from the 90's collides with a streaming giant with an insatiable appetite for content....you get the 3 part extravaganza, FEAR STREET! As we come down from the halloween highs, Brian and Laine felt it was a good idea to take a deep look at this series that manages to on one hand bring a good amount of gore and decent characters to life, but at the same time anger and confuse Brian due to a lack of attention to detail or following the film's own rules. So strap into our time machine as we blow through the inner drama between Shadyside and...

WARNING:  SPOILERS!!! Happy Halloween Everyone!  This week, Brian and John are bursting at the seams with the spooky season spirit and tackling a review of one of the most hotly anticipated movies to drop on theaters and streaming.......NO NOT DUNE!  We are of course talking about Halloween Kills (2021).  The sequel to the 2018 hit that served as more of a mouth wash to cleanse the pallete of the Rob Zombie stink.  Yet the question remained, where do you go from here?  Last we left Michael Myers, he was roasting in a firey death trap set by Laurie Strode and fam...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, we are rolling out the perfect trick (or treat depending on how much you like this movie) with a trip back in time to the 80's.....we're not sure the year because the little gem of a movie we are reviewing may have been shot in  1984, 1985, and then released in 1986, 1987, and 1988.  The movie is the mutant mish mash that is SPOOKIES!  A movie you probably remember bits of pieces from during those late nights on TNT's Monster-Vision or USA's Up-All-Night from the 90's but never actually sat down to watch the whole film.  And why would this movie not be memorable?...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, John and Brian are back with a breakdown of a indie horror film just in time for Spooky Season.  Friend of the show, Steve Rudzinski has dropped the sequel to his 2016 magnum killer unicorn opus with CarousHELL The 2nd.  We try to remain fairly spoiler free on this one but be warned there are a few plot points dropped in this review that may be spoilery.  CarousHELL The 2nd is one of the rare movies that we've come across that fostered a pretty decent back and forth conversation over what worked and what didn't work, the role of story in films that feature over the...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, Brian and John break down the life and career of the king of the parody film.....No not the Zucker's and no not Naked Gun or Airplane.  We are instead talking about Mel Brooks.  A man who has helped shape comedy (and film history) with his fantastic wit in his ability to write and punch up scripts for TV, his parody films knocking everything from the western all the way to parodies of Dracula and Frankenstein, and funding and producing films that transcend cinema with credits for The Fly and The Elephant Man.  So join us for a "roll in the hay" as we break down the...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, we are back after a brief hiatus dropping one of our most introspective episodes to date.  Most of us have a deep down love of terrible cinema.  It's the demented gremlin cousin of the part of you that laudes the best director or best film of the year.  Deep down, we all love to watch an awesomely bad film.  But did you ever take a step back and ask yourself why you love terrible cinema?  That's the question Brian and John attempt to answer today.  What is it that drives us to revel in the bizzarre and often illconcieved world of bad movies? FROM THE...

Batman and Robin (1997): The Batman and Robin (1997): The "Wacky Deli" of Superhero Movies - Episode 220

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week's episode is 220 episodes in the making.  This week, we are closing out our long running review of the Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher Original Batman Series with 1997's Batman and Robin.  What is truly amazing about this cluster of neon, terrible acting, terrible story, puns, and camp galore is that this movie was the fear that fan boys had back in 1988 when Michael Keaton, at the time knkown for comedic roles, was cast.  A fear that Batman would return to the ridiculous and over the top parody as seen in the 1960's Adam West series.  This film is notable for being...

This week, we are hanging out at the mall as we take a look at the darker side of fashion...and comedy in the 2020 Canadian dark comedy horror film, SLAXX.  Slaxx is a movie that we all discovered while surfing Shudder and boy oh boy is it a bloody good time but also forces Laine and Brian to relive their deepest darkest memories of working in Retail Hell.  FROM THE CONCESSION STAND-  YOUTUBE SHOW!   We've got a brand new youtube show called "From The Concession Stand."  It is a biweekly look at all your favorite content coming from the world of streaming...
