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. 

Jan 17, 2018

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!

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.

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. 

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.

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. 

Jun 21, 2017

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. 

Jun 14, 2017

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. 

Jun 7, 2017

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. 

May 10, 2017

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. 

Apr 5, 2017

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! 

Mar 1, 2017

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.

Feb 23, 2017

Chris and Mike are joined by Randal from the Grawlix podcast to re-discuss the first movie ever covered on this podcast (and referenced in every episode since) 1977's The Van. When a ginger boy graduates from high school and buys that Van he's always wanted he wreaks terror on the unsuspecting women of Los Angeles and commits every sex crime possible. This movie is meant to be a comedy. Also, Danny Devito is in it for 7 minutes.

Feb 15, 2017

Welcome to the first part of the one year Vanniversary for the Grindbin podcast! On this episode Chris and Mike discuss the unofficial sequel to the first movie they ever covered on this podcast, 1977's The Van. Hastily produced after the "success" of The Van, Malibu Beach is an interesting effort from Crown International Pictures.

Feb 8, 2017

Chris and Mike dive into the dark sub-genre of killer kid movies from the 1990's with Mikey (1992). While horror films were experiencing a lack of creativity and major franchises fell under the weight of bad sequels and dwindling interest, Mikey arose as one of the most depraved and horrific offerings the early 1990's had to offer. This kid has more balls than Schwarzenegger, more one-liners than Stallone, and a colder heart than Bronson. 

Jan 18, 2017

Crown International returns to the Grindbin in spectacular fashion. Jocks (1986) is a late entry in the cannon of Crown films but it's just as bad and memorable as their earlier entries. Featuring Christopher Lee, Richard Roundtree and a young Mariska Hargitay. 

Dec 21, 2016

Welcome to the Grindbin Holiday Spectacular where Chris and Mike break down the 1989 classic Elves starring the one and only Dan "Grizzly Adams" Haggerty. When young woman finds she is the target of an evil Nazi plot to create the master race through selective breeding she turns to the only man who can help her; Santa. 

Dec 7, 2016

Chris and Mike pull up to Joe's Super Duper to fill up their tanks in a movie brimming with gas-related puns in 1979's Gas Pump Girls. When June's Uncle Joe suffers a heart attack she decides to get her friends together to save his service station the only way she knows how - which doesn't leave much to the imagination. This movie has everything: a musical number, time traveling greasers, every sex pun you can think of, and more! 

Nov 2, 2016

Welcome to the first week of Blairvember, five whole weeks of Linda Blair movies on the Grindbin. In our first episode we start with the 1970's "classic" Roller Boogie. Molly Osborne joins Chris and Mike to discuss a movie which decides to literally change it's mind and start again about half way through. Rollerpocalypses, attempted sexual assaults, characters named Bobby, this movie has it all; and more!

Oct 19, 2016

Chris and Mike uncover a real hidden gem from the late 80's. A legless woman, an ET-equse sexual assault, a demon cat, a father daughter love triangle and it's all wrapped within a giant commercial for Diet Coke. It's 1988's The Kiss.

Oct 12, 2016

Chris and Mike dive into a listener request this week with 1982's The Last American Virgin. A movie that starts as a sex romp and ends with a hard slap in the face of reality. Gary has an unhealthy obsession with Karen (the new girl in town). Will his stalker ways get her to finally love him or will he simply hang himself in his parent's garage? All this and more on this episode of the Grindbin. Thanks to Kevin who rated and reviewed this show on Itunes - which means he got his movie request to the top of the list.

Oct 5, 2016

Chris and Mike stumble upon a movie that features the work of two Academy Award winners at arguably the lowest moments of their careers. You probably have never heard of Catch The Heat and while I'm sure some people involved in the production would rather it remained that way, this is a movie that has an incredibly weird and interesting backstory. Everything goes wrong when an FBI agent has to go undercover as a Tango dancer with a terribly racist Chinese accent to catch a drug kingpin. If that sounds insane it's because it is.
