Episode 14: Undefeatable, ft. David Hollingsworth
Martial artist and host of Mouthful of History David Hollingsworth joins me to look at the classic Cynthia Rothrock/Godfrey Ho film Undefeatable. Listen and learn how this action-packed b-movie is actually one of the most powerful commentaries on neoliberal capitalism out there, and we're probably not entirely joking!

Episode 13: Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth, ft. Bill Smiley
After being on lockdown, we're back! Bill Smiley joins us for our coming-back party with Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth, one of the most disliked sequels out there. Join us as we meet the Cenobites even Pinhead thinks are sub-par.

Episode 12: Death Wish 4, ft. Jonathan Root
After a bit of a hiatus, we are back with the series whose title poetically encapsulates the mood of 2020: Death Wish! Join Jonathan and I as we discuss the movie along with Hitler's sex life (it makes sense in context, I promise). Does Death Wish 4 begin to hold up to the gloriously deranged third installment?

Episode 11: Hitler's Daughter, ft. Doug Tilley
It's our most controversial episode yet! Doug Tilley joins me from No-Budget Nightmares to help make sure the obscure made-for-TV thriller Hitler's Daughter is remembered for posterity. Enjoy our in-depth analysis of the threat to political civility posed by Hitler's Daughter Bros, Doug's deconstruction of the film's sophisticated and intricate conspiracy plot, and Chad revealing some very disturbing tendencies. Check out more Doug Tilley at No-Budget Nightmares.

Episode 10: Truth or Dare?: A Critical Madness, ft. Tim Lehener
Tim Lehener comes on air to proselytize me on the virtues of Truth or Dare?: A Critical Madness, a very low-budget yet very clever take on '80s slashers brought to us by Tim Ritter when he was 18 years old. Also I manage to relate our discussion to my feelings about the new Star Wars trilogy, so hopefully we at Trash Canon will be getting a check from Disney for offering a stealth review.

Episode 9: Ice Cream Man, ft. Chris Dobson
Chris Dobson defects from the b-movie podcast he co-hosts, Your Stupid Minds, to talk with me about everybody's favorite treat: Clint Howard movies. A surreal, low-budget slasher movie that is also somehow simultaneously the best Three Ninjas movie ever made, find out why Ice Cream Man is a worthy addition to the Trash Canon. And I only accidentally called Clint Howard "Ron" once! For more Chris Dobson, check out Your Stupid Minds.

Episode 8: Halloween: Resurrection, ft. Lisa Cavalear
In a bold attempt to reinvent the Halloween franchise, we have an installment all about Tyra Banks and Busta Rhymes trying to make an awful premise for a reality TV show work. Also Michael Myers has to deal with a home invasion. Lisa Cavalear rejoins me to debate whether or not this is the worst or perhaps the most underappreciated movie in the series. (Spoiler: It's definitely the worst). Find more Lisa Cavalear at https://www.etsy.com/shop/creativecatloafer/

Episode 7: Plumbers Don't Wear Ties, ft. David DeMoss
David DeMoss returns to help me process the greatest contribution to the medium of interactive PowerPoint slides, Plumbers Don't Wear Ties. Are there any redeeming qualities to this artistic equivalent of a term paper that didn't get started until 3:00 the morning it was due?

Episode 6: Death Wish 3, ft. Jonathan Root
Literal '80s pop culture scholar Jonathan Root shares his expertise on one of the most culturally significant movies in the Trash Canon, Death Wish 3! We talk about the politics of the whole franchise, speculate on what the movie's original plot might have been, and even discuss President Trump's passion for the movie Bloodsport.

Episode 5: Street Fighter, ft. Zaki Hasan
Veteran podcaster Zaki Hasan stops by to discuss one of the "great" video game adaptations-in-name-only of the '90s, Street Fighter, brought to you by the writer of Die Hard, 48 Hours, and Hudson Hawk. Can Raul Julia's acting overcome even Jean-Cluade Van Damme's anti-acting? Find more Zaki at Zaki's Corner.

Episode 4: Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace, ft. Adam Clarke
Proud Canadian Adam Clarke joins me to confront one of his nation's greatest sins, the creation of Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace. And Chad confronts his inability to pronounce even simple names. Find more Adam at Megaphonic FM.

Episode 3: Hard Ticket To Hawaii, ft. David Larkins and Desiree Valdez
I lose my Andy Sidaris virginity (and gain a sometimes echo-y voice) for this discussion of "Hard Ticket To Hawaii". Death frisbees, topless blondes, and rocket launcher-bearing hunks in Hawaii all make for a fun ride, but is it truly a Trash Canon staple? Find David and Desiree at the Esoteric Order of Roleplayers and sirlarkins.com.

Episode 2: Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers, ft. Lisa Cavalear
Just in time for Halloween (both the holiday and the new movie that's the 27th or so reboot of the Halloween franchise), we talk about the infamous Halloween 6, the movie that gave Michael Myers a backstory as working for a secret Druid cult trying to save their town in a way more dramatic than just trying to revitalize their downtown...or was a really ill-conceived scientific experiment in breeding evil unstoppable serial killers, depending on which version of the movie you watch!

Episode 1: Crazy Fat Ethel II, ft. David DeMoss
For our inaugural episode, David DeMoss joins me to discuss Nick Millard's beautifully titled slasher film, CRAZY FAT ETHEL II. Does it just owe its place on the Trash Canon to its title or does it have a deeper beauty? Find David DeMoss at And You Thought It Was Safe! http://aytiws.com/ Title theme: Purple Planet Music, "Cafe Bleu" http://www.purple-planet.com/
