This week Chris and Mike delve into a classic film from exploitation auteur Jack Hill - Switchblade Sisters (1975). This forgotten classic is a true gem of grindhouse cinema that offers much more than simply trashy entertainment. Lace - leader of the Dagger Debs - is threatened when a new girl moves onto her turf and catches the eye of her boyfriend Dom. Politics, love triangles, bake sales, this movie has it all!
Chris is currently on tour with his band Leftover Crack. Recently he is was New York and had the opportunity to sit down with Joey Steel for an interview on his podcast: Dispatches from the Underground.
Chris and Mike delve into one of the most classic 1980's films, Thrashin'. This gem has avoided falling into complete obscurity because it stars Josh Brolin and features a cameo by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It's a true 80s film in every sense of the word: the clothing, the music, the dialogue; it's amazing. While it might not fit directly into the world of Grindhouse or Exploitation cinema it's a treat and we think you will agree.
Welcome to a special interview episode of The Grindbin. Chris and I recently had the opportunity to interview filmmaker Tanner Beard about his new film 6 Bullets to Hell - a Grindhouse Western just realesed on the Apple Store, Google Play and other streaming services.
Chris and Mike find out just how much trouble one man with a VHS camcorder and a Casio keyboard can get into with this week's "film", Black Devil Doll from Hell (1984). This is without a doubt the worst film Chris and Mike have ever seen; there is absolutely no question about it.
When Helen walked into a curio shop one day she never expected her life to change. Going from a god-fearing woman to a sex craved maniac all because of a simple doll.
Chris and Mike stay after class to discuss the 1974 thriller, The Teacher, a movie that's not at all what it's advertised to be. What's advertised as a simple sexploitation romp turns into a tale of a predator, her prey, and the inevitable consequences of a relationship that never should have happened.
