Grindbin International Month continues with Bobby and Mike finding themselves in a compromising situation in Italy. Grindbin guest Julie comes to the rescue but the gang is forced to record an episode about an Italian Poliziotteschi film. The Tough Ones (also called: Rome Armed to the Teeth) is a classic Italian Cop Drama with everything you could ever want: Hunchbacks, Dirty Cops, Car Chases, and more!

As Grindbin International month continues, Bobby and Mike have found themselves floating on raft in the middle of Mexico with this week's special guest, Tanner! The boys, with nowhere to go, decide to review a great Mexican exploitation film, Intrépidos Punks.

As Grindbin International month continues, Bobby and Mike find themselves stuck in Indonesia and just so happen to run into guests Terry and Shane in the local Sizzler. The boys have all seen the movie The Devil's Sword and decide to record an episode about it. This movie has everything you could ever want! Violence, action, magic, and even crocodile men!

May 1, 2019

Grindbin International Month is here! The boys are stuck in a hotel room in France with fake beards glued to their faces and forced to review a classic French slapstick film starring Louis de Funès. Is it a way out?! 

Apr 26, 2019

What happens when you take a script from a feminist author that was meant to be satirical and have Roger Corman produce it? One of the most inadvertently hilarious slasher films ever made! Slumber Party Massacre is a true one-of-a-kind movie where half the crew had no idea what they were making. Bobby and Mike are joined by Eddy (@eddietheaxe from the Let's Get Sh**y Show) to discuss this Grindbin classic!

Apr 17, 2019

Mann, Bobby, and Mike are here to discuss an Alien rip-off from Roger Corman. With one of the oddest ensemble casts in sci-fi history, the crew of a space ship wanders around a planet for a while before a giant worm rapes somebody... seriously.

Apr 10, 2019

Tanner, Bobby and Mike are here to discuss a Patreon poll pick for what would seem like a very controversial movie. During hard times in a local neighborhood, the police no longer effective, a local group volunteers to help clean up the streets and provide food and medical care to the poor. When violence erupts, half of the group splinters off and buys Nazi uniforms, while the others are upset they didn't get invited to the pool party. A movie that truly squanders it's potential but it's bizarrely entertaining, 1975's The Black Gestapo makes for a memorable bin watching experience. 

Apr 3, 2019

Bobby and Mike are joined by Joel (We Cut Heads: A Spike Lee Podcast) to discuss a movie requested by our Patreon member Eric. Texas Lightning stars Cameron Mitchell, his son and, for some strange reason, Marcia Brady (Maureen McCormick) in a role that... doesn't age well. 

Mar 29, 2019

Mike, Bobby, and Julie are joined by Captain Jack Heartless from the Captain Jack's Armbar Emporium podcast to discuss one of the most successful independent movies of all time, Billy Jack. The story behind the husband and wife duo of Tom Laughlin and Delores Taylor making this movie is filled with all sorts of twists and turns; even a presidential campaign! Get ready to be wopped by the Grindbin.

Mar 20, 2019

Mann, Shane, and Mike discuss Lucio Fulci's Grindbin debut by featuring one of his most insane films. What can only be described as a mix of Suspiria meets Screwballs 2, Aenigma is a movie that is truly an enigma. A sometimes comedy, a sometimes horror/slasher, and a sometimes steamy romance film, Aenigma is weird, fun, and very, very Italian. 

Mar 13, 2019

Mike and Mann are joined by one of the Grindbin 4, Faustus, to talk about the origin of the term Grindhouse in a special double feature of the Grindbin. The guys discuss two different "scare" movie from the 1930s and find out why these films were once considered "educational". For anyone who is a fan of exploitation cinema, this is a must listen.

Mar 7, 2019

It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's... Turkish Superman? On this episode of the bin, Bobby, Tanner, and Mike discuss a movie requested from one of our Patreon members (Thanks Hughie!). Director Kunt Tulgar took a trip with his parents and saw Richard Donner's Superman, he then had the bright idea that he could do that himself... and he did! The result is one of the worst movies ever made.

Feb 28, 2019

Tanner and Mike are joined by special guest Eric to discuss a forgotten action gem from the early 90s that nobody remembers... and it stars Christopher Walken! 

Feb 20, 2019

Bobby and Mike are joined by Patreon member Shane (Undefeatable) to talk about a movie starring Evel Knievel and Gene Kelly... that nobody has ever heard of. How could this be? The story behind one of the most infamous flops in cinema history is a fascinating look at one of the most controversial characters in Americana during the 1970's, Evel Knievel. 

Feb 15, 2019

Spencer, from the "We Cut Heads: A Spike Lee Podcast", joins Mike and Bobby to talk about a Giallo movie from the early 70's that might give us a clue as to why Italian filmmakers used American-ized names in their future productions. In the Folds of the Flesh (1970) is an insane movie and fits right in with Valentine's day. 

Feb 6, 2019

Tanner, Bobby, and Mike are here to talk about a movie with one of the strangest titles of all time. Sssssss (7 S's), starts out as a classic Universal Monster movie but soon devolves into monologues about snake religion, snake racism and the belief that the title "king" in King Cobra actually means it's part of the royal family. It's a very, very strange movie that makes for some great Grindbin fodder.

Jan 30, 2019

Pam Grier finally makes her Grindbin debut, and we get the return of one of the greatest exploitation movie directors of all time, Jack Hill (Switchblade Sisters). Directly after making his first women in prison film (the Big Doll House), Jack Hill returns with The Big Bird Cage, which is one of the oddest takes in the women in prison genre we've seen yet.

Jan 24, 2019

Bobby, Tanner, and Mike are joined by Patreon member (and one of the Grindbin 4) Shane to discuss the first - of hopefully many - appearances of Cynthia Rothrock on the Grindbin. Cynthia kicks ass in high-waisted jeans while bringing down a mysterious serial killer. What is an absolutely insane movie gets even weirder when it's revealed that there is actually two version of this film - one of which has a completely different story and set of characters. 

Jan 16, 2019

We've talked about movies without plot before on the Grindbin; we've raged over runtime runtime runtime issues... nothing could prepare us for this movie. Nothing.

Jan 2, 2019

Bobby, Julie and Mike ring in 2019 with another Michael Sopkiw (Blastfighter, Massacre in Dinosaur Valley) classic. In a post-apocalyptic New York, the remaining people struggle to survive in the nuclear wasteland of the US where no babies have been born in over 12 years. It's up to Sopkiw to repopulate the planet.

Dec 25, 2018

We are sorry in advance to our listeners from the UK. In a very special Christmas episode, the boys from the Bomb's Away Podcast join Mike and Bobby for a movie that should have never been opened. From the creators of Pieces comes 1984's Don't Open Till Christmas! Complete with lots and lots of bad British impressions from your hosts.

Dec 19, 2018

Special guest Julie joins Mike and Bobby to discuss a movie that was never meant to be seen outside of Indonesia. Lady Terminator is one of the great rip-off movies to come out of Southeast Asia during the late 1980s. Attempting to capitalize on the Terminator franchise, but with a woman, and lots of nudity, this film is absolutely baffling and deserves a much larger cult following than it currently has. First she mates, then she Terminates!

Dec 12, 2018

Dan Haggerty returns to the Grindbin in a new DanCember classic. Maybe the greatest movie of all time, seriously, Mind Trap might be the greatest movie ever made. Ever!

Dec 7, 2018

Godmonster of Indian Flats is a movie about a giant sheep monster from space that is threatening to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting Nevada mining town! Except the movie isn't about this... at all. Is there even a sheep monster?! Find out on this episode of the bin.

Nov 30, 2018

Blairvember 2018 concludes with the only foreign film ever to appear in a Blairvember and a special appearance by a Grindbin favorite! Witchery is a real special kind of bad, the kind of the Italians could deliver. Featuring a return of David Hasselhoff to the bin.
