This week we watched a movie that was weird, wrong, and awesome on so many levels. The movie we speak of is the 1988 cult classic ‘Hell Comes To Frogtown,’ starring the one and only Rowdy Roddy Piper! Most know Piper from his days as a professional wrestler or from the bubble gum chewing hero from ‘They Live,’ but very few know that he followed up ‘They Live’ with this over the top gem. The film is set in an post-apocalyptic wasteland where few fertile men and women exist due to atomic fallout and, as a result, the government places a high priority on those that can still breed. In comes Sam Hell, played by Piper, who is captured by the women ruled government and given a mission to rescue fertile women from Frogtown and fuck for freedom. Will Sam Hell make it out of Frogtown alive? Will he breed, like he’s never bred before? Will he defeat the leader of the frog-people Commander Toadie? Watch the movie in full on YouTube then listen to Episode 70 to find out!
Next week we watch a little known 1989 remake of ‘The Phantom of the Opera,’ starring Robert Englund. He was Freddy now he’s the Phantom, in this darker and gorier version of the classic Gaston Leroux novel. A young soprano becomes the obsession of a horribly disfigured composer who has plans for those oppose himself or the young singer.
Remember every movie we watch is available for streaming on Netflix or YouTube! [Unless we say otherwise]
