Summer Sequel month 2018 continues with the movie our Patrons wanted the most, Death Wish 2! Grindbin Hall of Famer Charles Bronson returns to the show with arguably his most popular series of films. Death Wish 2 is a sleazy grindhouse epic that has Bronson trying to "clean" the mean streets of Los Angeles.
Our favorite Hollywood Hooker by night and straight A student by day returns to the Grindbin in a sequel that nobody wanted.
Everyone remembers the Wes Craven adaptaion of Swamp Thing... but does anyone remember the Jim Wynorski (Chopping Mall) sequel? To kick off our Summer Sequel Month 2018 we are delving into one of the movies that DC wishes would have never been made.
It's exactly what you think it is! Pieces is one of gorriest slasher films ever made, and it's also one of the weirdest. Taking place in Boston, Spain, Pieces is a movie that was never intended to be seen by a large audience but has found it's cult following and becoming a beloved classic among bad movie fans.
Grindbin Hall of Famer Charles Bronson returns with one his more memorable pairings with director J. Lee Thompson. What was intended to be a movie about Bronson hunting terrorists suddenly became a movie about him being an LA cop chasing a serial killer. How did this happen? Find out on this episode of the Grindbin.
Copyright infringement the movie! Bruce Lee returns to the Grindbin (kinda) in another Bruceploitation film where he fights fictional characters (and still living actors) in a hellscape world in order to get back to Earth. It's as insane as it sounds.

Mann and Mike are truly Breaking All The Rules in this episode. Not only are they releasing episode 101 before episode 100, they are without adult supervision in one of the weirdest and rule breaking episodes of the bin ever. Thanks to one of the Grindbin 4 for suggesting this Canadian "comedy" that truly makes us question that country.
In honor of the 100th episode of the Grindbin next week, we are bringing you a sample of our mini bin shows that are exclusive to our Patreon members. To join for as little as $2 a month visit: http://patreon.com/grindbin
Mann, Mike and Tanner are here to talk about the Crown International "classic", The Pom Pom Girls. A surprisingly mean-spirited teen comedy about a maniac (Robert Carradine) and his Jock friend. This movie was recommended by one of our Patreons: Joe Don Baker.
Herschell Gordon Lewis makes his Grindbin debut with his last movie from the 1970's. The Gore Gore Girls is a great example of Lewis' over-the-top gore and strangely slapstick nature. A true oddity of filmaking and a fun episode of the Grindbin. This is a Patreon pick from Shane McCollum.
Sunny Chiba makes his debut on the Grindbin with this Patreon request from listener Joe Don Baker. In one of the most bizarre episodes of the Grindbin yet, one of us watched a completely different version of the movie.
Another Patreon select this week on the Grindbin finds Burt Reynolds making his debut on the show with the "good old boy" classic White Lightning. Gator McKlusky gets out of prison to avenge the death of his brother by the hands of a corrupt sherrif played by incredible character actor Ned Beatty. A true Grindhouse classic.
The Grindbin celebrates the new year in style with a classic 1980's slasher film from Cannon Films. A mysterious killer, claiming a new victim for every time zone's new year, calls a New Year's eve TV show to annouce his kills and play them live on air.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
The boys are back to discuss a movie Hughes forced everyone to watch but he's never seen himself. Mugsy's Girls (also called Delta Pi) was billed as the "female Animal House" but that is not even close to being true. A star studded episode for sure as Oscar Winner Ruth Gordon makes an appearance in one of her last film roles, Laura Branigangoes from singing to attempting to act, and even Bob Hope stops by to say hi to the guys during the recording. A movie that is so bad it might rival Lunch Wagon in pure Grindbin hatred.
The episode that literally sent us to Hell and back trying to record it is finally here! A group of Las Vegas showgirls are hired to kill random Arabs in an attempt to save an ambassador's son. Hell Squad is a movie filled with bathtubs, bad foreign accents, terrible sets, and everything else you could ever want from an exploitation movie. This is a rate/review request from friend of the show Randy.
Motorcycles, graveyards, toads, deals with the devil, suicide, the living dead, and more! The boys take on a real classic exploitation film from the UK, 1973's Psychomania. When Tom unlocks the secrets to immortality he convinces his friends to kill themselves so they can come back and spend eternity messing with old people around their local town. If it wasn't for that blasted devil and his legally binding lease agreements they might have gotten away with it too!
Connie Stevens stars as the worst undercover cop of all time - if she even is a cop. Directed by Grindbin All Star Howard Avedis (The Teacher), Scorchy is a movie that entertains and confuses all at the same time. It's about a drug deal... or something. Listen as the boys try and break this one down and have some fun along the way. Will Scorchy catch the criminals? Is her name even Scorchy?! Find out on this episode of the Grindbin.
The boys are back to discuss a movie about rub downs and rub outs. When Katie inherits a business from her deceased uncle she had no idea she would be running a brothel. Her attempts to turn the business legitimate run afoul of the local mafia and she finds herself in a real sticky situation. A fun and very obscure exploitation film from the 1970's, the Manhandlers is a dig way down deep into the bin of grindhouse cinema.
Mike is joined by guest co-host Michael Tanner (co-author of Junior Braves of the Apocalypse) to discuss a movie from Grindbin All-Star Lee Frost (Policewomen). When a racist white surgeon is given two weeks to live, he decides to take desperate measures and perform the world's first head transplant. Only problem, the donor is not to the doctor's liking!
Chris and Mike roll into a real conundrum of a movie, The Amazing Mr. No Legs. Marketed as a movie about a man in a wheelchair who's a black belt in karate but it's actually just 90 minutes of two guys wandering around trying to solve crimes... sort of.
