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.
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.
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.
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.
