On this episode of B Movie Breakdown we discuss, for the first time on the podcast, a film by none other than the kings of B Movies, Troma! It’s a pretty obvious choice when doing a B Movie podcast to just cover any number of their insane movies and we held off from the obvious for far too long. Now instead of going with the other obvious choice of Toxic Avenger, we went with another hero in the Troma universe. That’s right folks this week we discuss the 1990 action comedy Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. This is yet another one of Lloyd Kaufman’s true masterpieces, but for some reason isn’t talked about as much as Toxie or even Tromeo & Juliet. In this Troma Team Release, Detective Harry Griswald becomes possessed with the spirit of an ancient Kabuki master that gives him the powers to become Kabukiman! This has made him ‘the chosen one’ to do battle with ‘the evil one’. Does Kabukiman prevail in the end? Find out yourself by watching the movie on Netflix and then listening to Episode 85 of B Movie Breakdown!
Next week on the podcast we travel to a small farming town in the Midwest and take on some pesky little monsters…or some may call them CRITTERS! Oh yeah, that’s right, the Gremlins knock off with a little more horror edge is our movie for Episode 86. A hoard of hungry flesh-eating monsters from outer-space with razor sharp teeth and a witty attitude are on the prowl! A family must seek the help of a local drunk and his critter-fighting bounty hunting pals before its too late…
Remember majority of the movies we watch are available for streaming on Netflix or YouTube! [Unless we say otherwise]
