Yobo, Matt, Terry, and Mike discuss one of the greatest Grindbin movies yet! Death Machines has EVERYTHING you could ever want from a bin movie: overly complicated criminal plans, milk toast characters who you don't want to root for, excessive paperwork as a plot device, and more! 

Dec 20, 2023

Wick, Yobo, Chris in Miami, and Mike celebrate the holiday season with the classic Santa slasher, Silent Night, Deadly Night. When little Billy's grandpa tries to warn him about the evils of Santa, the kid doesn't listen and his whole life is destroyed. It's a movie, and episode, full of very valuable life lessons just like catatonic Grandpa used to tell you. 

Dec 14, 2023

Pia Zadora finally returns to the bin! Yobo, Bobby, new guest Jeff, and Mike discuss this Pia Zadora, Telly Savalas crime caper in Las Vegas. Despite being financed by Pia's then husband, filmed at his hotel (The Riveria), and simply a vehicle for more Pia screen time, this is a strangely enjoyable movie! So grab a Pia-tina and enjoy extended scenes of Telly gambling and grabbing butts. 

This episode featured some technical difficulties in our first hour. If you're interested in seeing and hearing the almost four hour cut (including live watches of Telly Savalas music videos) check out our Patreon

Dec 6, 2023

Yobo, Steve, Matt, and Mike discuss the ill-fated Olivia Newtown John and ELO musical. Featuring hot and sandy popcorn at the beach, maybe our most elaborate and nonsensical movie scam yet, guys rubbing themselves Xanadu in the Getty, and the hardest takes Yobo has ever had on interior design and rollerskating club logistics. 

With more than double the runtime of the movie, this is an epic episode of the bin that shouldn't be missed. 

Nov 30, 2023

Steve and Izzy from EILFM join Bobby, Mary, and Mike as Camvember 2023 comes to a close with the adult film Cameron didn't know he starred in... allegedly. Dixie Ray, eventually cut into an R rated film called "It's Murder Baby" is a noir thriller that features some of the most uncomfortable, exposition laden sex scenes, and a very, very drunk Cameron. It's the perfect, akward way to end 2023's Camvember. 

Nov 22, 2023

Camvember 2023 continues with J.M. Brandt returning to talk the original Slaughter with Bobby and Mike. Surely there are lots of outstanding questions we had from the second movie that are answered here, right? There has to be incredibly backstories for characters we met in the second film, right? There is at least a super computer at this Mexico (South America) base, right?!

Find out the answers to these questions (probably not)... and more!

Nov 16, 2023

Yobo, Daniel, Matt, and Mike talk about the reunion of Cameron Mitchell and Leo Fong! It's a Camvember miracle, right? right?! 

Featuring Cameron drooling over a teppanyaki, extended talk about Necco wafers, and Daniel's new rap persona.  

Nov 2, 2023

Bobby, Chef Robby, Terry, and Mike kick off Camvember with the unforgettable, Fred Olen Ray produced, direct-to-video slasher, Jack-O. Cameron's performance is brief but memorable in this one as he does something NO Grindbin all-star has ever done before! Also featuring a long dead John Carradine, the most uncomfortable nude scene of Linnea Quigley's career, and an bunch of pumpkins Fed kept in his garage for six months before filming started. 

Oct 25, 2023

Bobby, Faustus, Vaughn, and Mike talk about the Lucio Fulci cigarette smuggling movie Contaband. Two brothers have made a nice life for themselves smuggling in Marlboros to Naples until a mysterious drug smuggler appears and the bodies start piling up. Will Luca stop the flow of heroin into Italy, or more importantly, will he ever find out who's responsible for tire mountain?!

Oct 18, 2023

Tanner, Wick, Bobby, and Mike discuss the Frank Henenlotter classic, Frankenhooker (1990). When a "medical student" looses his fiance in a tragic lawnmower accident, Jeffrey pieces her back together with a bunch of sex worker parts and a little lightning, what could possibly go wrong?! 

Sep 27, 2023

Bobby, Terry, Candice, and Mike discuss the Lucio Fulci classic, The New York Ripper. When an enigmatic quackster starts dialing up the ladies, and the body count starts stacking like ducklings in a row, it's up to an NYPD detective and a guy he hires to solve the case for him to waddle their way to justice. 

Sep 20, 2023

Vaughn, Lee, Bobby, and Mike discuss the Jimmy Wang Yu classic that puts a shiv into the Shaw Brothers. 

A one-armed kung fu expert brings his students to a martial arts contest where a blind assasin with a blade hat starts beheading every one-armed man he can find. Chaos ensues, will our teacher survive? Is this murder spree actually because people didn't pay their restaurant bill? Find out on this action packed episode of the bin... which is also a sequel and Vaughn messed up the scheduling. 

Sep 13, 2023

Chef Robby, Chuck, Matt Anderson, Doug Wortel (from THE MIGHTY PECULIAR), and Mike talk about Corvette Summer. This coming-of-age "comedy" starring Mark Hamill (fresh off the set of Star Wars) and Annie Potts is one of the more disturbing movies we've seen on the bin in a long time. 

Mark Hamill loves to build strange cars and pose on the hood like Tom Savini in Knightriders. When his latest creation is stolen during a High School shop class field trip to Van Nuys Blvd, Mark takes off to Vegas in search of the Corvette. On the way he meets Annie Potts, a teenaged-sex-worker-in-training who helps him try to track it down between giving herself swirlies in gas station men's rooms. It's a laugh riot!!!

 

Sep 7, 2023

Summer Sequel Month 2023 comes to a close with the Patreon poll pick. Matt, Vaughn, Bobby, and Mike rent some tuxes, get a limo, reserve a table at the local Olive Garden, and take eachother to prom while discussing the supernatural sequel that has nothing to do with the first Prom Night movie. 

Aug 25, 2023

Summer Sequel Month 2023 continues with an absolute banger! Bobby and Mike are joined by J.M. Brandt and Tom Napolitano to discuss the Jim Brown classic featuring a sex guy Ed McMahon, the Red Baron ruining picnics, all the chicken livers you can eat, and maybe the most confusing crime yet in a Grindbin movie. 

Aug 16, 2023

Summer Sequel Month 2023 continues with another trip to the Penitentiary. Yobo, Terry, Bobby, and Mike are shocked to find a cheaper, weirder, and funnier? sequel to the prison boxing drama Penitentiary.

The guys discuss all the important aspects of the movie like if you can actually swim in a crochet bikini, small TV placement during a murder, what the rate of inflation is for buying "services" during a prison boxing match, and whether or not Bee Movie is about a woman trying to have relations with a bee or a bee trying to have relations with a woman.   

Aug 9, 2023

The Kaiju Krew is back to talk about Gamera Vs. a Giant Street Shark. When two kids stumble upon a flying saucer that takes them to a strange planet with pretty space girls and mom's donuts, only one space turtle can save them... as long as he doesn't have any cuties in the queue. 

Aug 2, 2023

Summer Sequel Month 2023 kicks off with a trip back to the beach with The Grindbin Beach Party Crew!

The second in the Beach Party movies finds the gang renting a love shack on the sand next to a stable of human-trafficked bodybuilders managed by Don Rickles. Incredibly bad surfing montages, Dick Dale, a very pissed off Anette, and NO ERIC VON ZIPPER make for an entertaining, if slightly infuriating, trip back to the beach. 

Jul 26, 2023

Can you see us? Can you hear us? The Grindbin has returned! Bobby, Yobo, Mike Rat, and Mike discuss the epic merging of Ken Russell and The Who in 1975's rock opera, Tommy.  If you ever wanted to hear Yobo sing, this is the episode for you!

Jul 5, 2023

Bobby, Mann, Eddie and Mike oil up and hit the beach to talk about a recent Patreon Poll winner, Hardbodies (1984). Based off a Penthouse letter (not a joke) Hardbodies is about the laziest movie you could ever imagine... and it's amazing. 

Jun 28, 2023

The other Tim, Bobby, Steve and Izzy, and Mike discuss the winner of a recent Patreon Poll, The Black Tight Killers from 1966. Hondo is on a flight home from the fireworks war and befriends a flight attendant, only to find out she is kidnapped and now he is apparently tasked with finding her. An incredible hidden gem, BTK is perfect Grindbin fare. 

Jun 21, 2023

Yobo, Jersey James, Bobby, and Mike discuss a real NEW YORK movie. A karateman goes on a search-and-destroy mission to kill the ruthless landlords who maybe murdered his father. We learn all about the New York of the 70's complete with old building kings, marking your territory, and how the rats used to be great! 

Jun 8, 2023

Bobby, Mary, Fern, and Mike discuss the Italian definitely-not a rip-off of Jaws that features an incredible accent changing performance from Vic Morrow. This might be the most American movie ever, we're talking shark guns, mysterious cowboys, shotguns on boats, American flags, and the biggest fu^&ing net you've ever seen! So grab those pillows, load that meat pole, and get ready for some shark biting action! 

Jun 1, 2023

Bobby, Yobo, Terry, and Mike discuss Jamaa Fanaka's prison boxing epic, Penitentiary. On this epsiode we learn way too much about Mr. Goodbars, a new Yobo grift to become a professional boxer, what Nell's favorite candy bar would be, and more!
