There are plenty of Holiday themed horror films but Christmas Evil is a real standout in the genre. A mentally deranged toy factory employee decides he’s going to bring Christmas back and make people respect Santa Claus again!

Deezember 2018 starts with... We honestly can't believe we are here right now. A month of Eddie Deezen movies? Will the Grindbin survive? Can the guys take it? Find out on this week's episode of the Grindbin.

Eddie Deezen becomes a "mob boss" in this "comedic" sendup of the Godfather by direct-to-video king Fred Olen Ray. Flailing Tommy Guns, terrible puns, and lots of regret in this first week of Deezember!

The guys close Blairvember 2017 with a return to one of their favorite Linda Blair movies, Savage Streets. A see-to-believe type affair, this movie is the perfect embodiment of what you would imagine a Grindhouse film to be. So get on that leather onesie and jump into the tub with us to celebrate the close of this year’s Blairvember!

Nov 22, 2017

Blairvember 2017 continues with one of the most schizophrenic movies ever made. Have you ever wanted a family drama, slasher film, cop melodrama, family revenge saga, and the elephant man all in one movie?! Well you'll love Grotesque!

Nov 16, 2017

Blairvember 2017 continues with a real hidden gem in Linda's filmography. The pairing of Linda and Ernest Borgnine in a movie that might be one of the most offensive ever presented on the Grindbin is an episode not to be missed.

Nov 8, 2017

Blairvember continues with one of our most hated actors making his triumphant return, Grindbin hall of shamer, Murray Langston. In this week's film Linda Blair goes undercover as a homeless woman to write stories for the newspaper and ends up falling in love. It's definitely as horrible as it sounds.

Nov 1, 2017

Blairvember 2017 kicks off with the pairing of a lifetime, Grindbin All-Star Dan Haggerty joins Linda Blair in a movie about frozen dinners that come back to life because of a thunder storm. A production that is so embarrasingly low budget and just a disaster from start to finish, it's a great way to kick off everyone's favorite month of the year!

Oct 27, 2017

Welcome to the first of our monthly mini-episodes. This is a Patreon exclusive show where the boys will review obscure and classic TV shows from past decades. It also includes the return of the fan favorite segment, Sick Reviews - from everyone's favorite critic.

Oct 26, 2017

Part 2 of the Grindbin Halloween blah blah blah is in effect! One of the worst movies ever made just so happens to have one of the strangest back stories ever told. Spookies was a movie that should have stayed dead and buried but someone decided to release this turd and now we have another episode of the Grindbin. Enjoy everyone! Thanks to our Patron Julie for her donating and recommending this movie.

The summer might have ended but the ice cream truck just rolled up in this direct-to-video "thriller" starring Clint Howard as a murderous Ice Cream Man. 

Oct 11, 2017

Mann, Hughes, Bobby and Mike are here to discuss the Italian/Canadian answer to the 1970's King Kong remake, Yeti: Giant of the 20th Century. When a Yeti of varying size is unfrozen from a fallen glacier he comes to understand that the modern world might not be for him. 

Oct 4, 2017

We are back on the Grindbin with another one word movie about killer animals. We should have learned our lesson the first time. David McCallum stars as a highly unlikable scientist who is trying to figure out why domestic dogs keep killing people... sort of. 

Sep 27, 2017

One of the greatest exploitation movies ever made makes it's way to the Grindbin. The Cannon Group (Kinjite, Last American Virgin) brings the art of Ninjitsu to American audiences with a movie that was much more successful than it had any right to be. Franco Nero (dubbed and completely miscast) stars along martial arts legend Shô Kosugi and Christopher George (with a scene stealing role) in of the best bad movies ever made. 

Sep 20, 2017

The boys are back to talk about a film from infamous grindhouse director Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust). Atlantis rises up from the ocean and it's up to two random guys to do... something about it. A complete mess of a movie but a fun ride regardless, The Raiders of Atlantis is an exploitation classic.

Sep 13, 2017

The boys are joined by Spencer from the High and Low Podcast to talk about one of the most controversial movies of all time, Ralph Bakshi's Coonskin. Protested, pulled from the theaters, and causing national outrage, Coonskin is a unique movie that is certain to offend almost anyone who watches it. Bakshi (most well known for Fritz the Cat and Heavy Traffic) takes aim at institutional racism in America and organized crime. This is a little bit of a different episode for us but we hope your guys enjoy it. 

Sep 6, 2017

Grindbin All-Star Claudia Jennings (Gator Bait) returns to the bin in an early 70's Roger Corman flick about the world of professional roller derby. Michael Tanner (guest from The Thing With The Two Heads) joins Hughes and Mike to discuss this cult classic. 

Sep 4, 2017

Do you want all the amazing stories from The Voyage of the Rock Aliens production? Well you've come to the right place. After receiving a transmission from space, the guys managed to get two of the rock aliens to agree to an interview on the Grindbin! Marc Jackson and Jeffrey Casey join us and share all the things you ever wanted to know about what happened behind the scenes of one of the strangest musicals ever made. You can find the new RHEMA album on Itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/rhema/id1229422507

Aug 30, 2017

The boys are back to discuss a musical that was never officially released in the USA. Featuring Pia Zadora, Grindbin All-Star Ruth Gordon, Jermaine Jackson and a few very special guests! This is a Grindbin you definitely don't want to miss.

Aug 17, 2017

The boys welcome Roger Corman back into the Grindbin with one of his directing efforts, 1959's A Bucket of Blood. The oldest movie we've covered on the show and a real hidden gem in Corman's filmography, A Bucket of Blood follows the exploits of a simple minded busboy as he tries to become an artist and fit in with the beatnik crowd at the coffee shop he works at. Filmed in only 5 days and with a shoestring budget, this is a film that proves the talent in front and behind the camera doesn't always need a large budget to produce a enjoyable film.

Aug 9, 2017

The boys take a trip down to Brazil for their first adventure into the cannibal sub-genre of exploitation film. Marketed as "Cannibal Ferox 2" in the UK despite having literally nothing to do with the first movie, Massacre in Dinosaur Valley is an exercise in the absurd. Rivaling Raw Force in it's random dubbing and nonsensical plot, Dinosaur Valley is an incredibly enjoyable bad movie that is a true hidden gem in the exploitation catalog.

Aug 2, 2017

The guys lock themselves into the drive-in for their first expedition into the Ozploitation genre of films. From acclaimed Australian director Brian Trenchard-Smith (Turkey Shoot, BMX Bandits, and a few of Leprechaun movies) comes Dead End Drive-In, a movie about a post-apocalyptic Australia where the government comes up with creative ways to deal with the unemployed. What seems like an episode of the Twilight Zone quickly devolves into something... well we don't really know what to make of it actually.

Jul 26, 2017

Summer Sequel month comes to a close with possibly the most depraved movie of all time; Screwballs 2: Loose Screws. A movie so vile it could be tried for sex crimes, Loose Screws takes the formula for a teen sex comedy and turns it up to 11. Four guys who've repeated the 12th grade a number of times are finally expelled and sent to an academy for idiots; where they just commit more sex crimes (and this time on the freshman class). This is a true Grindbin movie and it's a fitting way to end a month that has become quite the disaster in the annals of Grindbin history. 

Jul 19, 2017

Summer Sequel Month continues on the Grindbin with a listener request from our great friend and sponsor of the show: Shawn Thompson from LooseRounds.com. House 2 is a sequel that has almost nothing to do with the first one (that seems to be a running theme this month). When a married couple inherits a Nickelodeon game show of a house from their dead relatives they find it actually contains a portal to another dimension filled with dinosaurs and reject muppet creatures. Will House 2 bring summer sequel month back from the dead after the disastrous Surf 2? Find out on this episode of the Grindbin. 

Jul 12, 2017

Summer Sequel month continues with Rudy Ray Moore's followup to Dolemite (Episode 21 of the Grindbin). A movie that's less a sequel and more a re-imagining of the first movie. Dolemite brings down the Mob and a group of racist cops while providing plenty of patented Dolemite one-liners along the way. Human Tornado is an amazing movie and a worthy follow-up to the classic Dolemite.
