Critters 4 - 1992

Critters 4 - 1992Join David, Ian, and Dylan for the first of our Horror Sequels in Space! series, where they review 1992's last word in the evil tribbles horror franchise "Critters". Yes, Critters 4, the one that takes place in space. You'll find that being the theme for the next few weeks. The film stars Don Keith Opper, Terrence Mann, Angela Bassett and Brad Dourif in situations where being able to convincingly act like you're terrified is a tremendous boon to your work.

I'm not going to lie to you and say that everyone in this movie actively partook in this boon. There's probably a better way to say all of that. This description is getting a little out of hand. That said, so is the censoring in this podcast.

Fun fact, this movie cost so little to make that I can't actually figure out how little money it was. To keep costs down, they actually re-used space footage from Critters 2 and 1982's Android, making the film look needlessly dated. But I guess when money is that big an issue, you're not about to be doing your own space effects. Especially if you've given up as hard as these guys apparently did.

Food for thought: How long till it gets a reboot?

See you next week.

Jason X - 2001

Jason X - 2001Join David, Ian, and Dylan for our second Horror Sequel in space! And guess what? It's Friday the 13th y'all! In October, no less, so we reviewed the only thing we possibly could on a day like today; Jason X. Yeah, one of the two Friday the 13th movies that wasn't called "Friday the 13th" in some way. In space, there are no Friday's. Maybe there was another reason, but we'll never know and I don't even want to.

For informational sake, it stars Kane Hodder, Lexa Doig, Lisa Ryder, Chuck Campbell, and Peter Mensah. Truth be told, this movie was only made as a stop-gap while Freddy vs. Jason was still in development hell, so they could keep interest in the character alive. I'm not sure if "interest" is what they generated.

Hell, we only had to wait another two years for Freddy vs Jason to come out, which was actually ten years after the Friday the 13th movie that it was actually sequelizing (Jason goes to Hell: the Final Friday - 1993).

I won't say that I don't like this movie, though. It is truly fun at times, and definitely gets silly enough to laugh at. This movie knew what it was enough to not take itself too seriously, and that's probably the best thing it could have done.

See you next week.

Hellraiser: Bloodline - 1996

Hellraiser: Bloodline - 1996Join Ian, Dylan, and Brett for the third Horror Sequel in Space (in no particular order)! This week we reviewed the final Hellraiser that rated being released in a theater; Hellraiser Bloodline, otherwise known as Hellraiser IV to those of us who can never remember the arbitrary subtitles given to almost every single Hellraiser film. Of which there are nine (ten if you're reading this after Hellraiser Judgment comes out).

But enough about the Hellraiser films we didn't watch, Bloodline stars  Doug Bradley, Bruce Ramsay, Valentina Vargas, and Kim Myers. Honestly, there are other people in it, I just usually copy whatever short list I can find. In fact, Adam Scott's in the movie. We weren't sure at first, but yeah, it was him. Neat. It was actually his second film, and it was a pretty substantial role, even if he wasn't in the whole movie. Although he was in in more than most other characters.

I'm not really sure what else to say about this movie other than Ian and Dylan really aren't about horror movies, but thankfully Brett is. It really helped that all the horror was pretty weak. Yes, Ian and Dylan may be complete pussies when it comes to this kind of thing, but they're discerning pussies.

See you next week.

Leprechaun 4: In Space (1997)

Leprechaun 4: In Space (1997)Join David, Ian, and Dylan for their final Horror Sequel in Space! This week we reviewed a movie that wore its heart on its sleeve. By that I mean that the subtitle of the movie is "In Space", and it happens in space. Yes, we watched "Alien-Monster-Bastard IV: In Space." Sorry, slip of the finger, I meant "Leprechaun 4: In Space." Starring Warwick Davis, Brent Jasmer, Jessica Collins, Guy Siner, and Rebekah Carlton.

But seriously, they never actually say the word "leprechaun" in this movie, so he's only ever referred to as alien, monster, bast**d, or a combination of the three. Is it just so far in the future that people have forgotten what a leprechaun is? Does this also mean that Lucky Charms went under at some point and no one gets to taste that magically delicious flavor ever again?

I'm not sure any of that matters, but if you've never seen this movie before, listen to the podcast to hear an explanation of the most confusing nudity in a horror movie ever conceived. That may be overselling it.

In any case, next week is a Patron's Choice, and the week after that we get back to Season 5!

See you then.
