It's Wednesday, and you know what that means, it's cruise night over on Van Nuys Blvd. In this episode Chris and Mike return to the cannon of Crown International Pictures to discuss one of their more pointless entries.

Bobby arrives home at his trailer where his topless girlfriend hands him a beer. He turns on the TV and finds a local news report discussing Van Nuys Blvd. It's at this moment where he decides to leave his old life and go cruise the blvd. What happens next is about an hour and a half commercial for Six Flags Magic Mountain (That's not a joke).

What makes this movie special is that is comes with a commentary by the director of the film, William Sachs. Mike and Chris discuss his comments and gain some much needed insight into how a Crown International Picture is born.

This week Chris and Mike try and explain one of the most bizarre films ever made, Supervixens; directed by Russ Meyer - king of the sexploitation genre.

Clint Ramsey is forced to leave his dream job at a gas station when his wife is murdered by a psycho cop, Harry Sledge. From here things only get weirder as Clint is continually accosted by busty women who force themselves onto him until he is reunited with his one true love, a new job at a gas station.

Chris and Mike also try their hands at internet dating with Kim Bentley from Malibu High (1979).

Blood Diner is one of those rare movies that succeeds by being bad on purpose. Typically these types of movies don't come across as genuine and create a false sense of so-bad-it's-good. Bad movies that we remember and talk about are never made to be bad on purpose, they are earnest attempts by filmmakers who simply won't back down in the face of people telling them they are insane. These are the true gems of trash cinema and Blood Diner somehow crosses over this line.

The Director, Jackie Kong, was certainly aware of what she was making but the final product is so bizzare and disjointed from reality that you can't help but laugh. Most of the dialogue (if not all) seems completely re-dubbed in the ADR booth. Exposition is haphazardly fired off by characters (onscreen and off) talking almost in fast forward. This movie is simply one of the most bizzare spectales you will ever witness.
