Grab your space-backpack and space-belt because we're taking a trip with Vitsie the video sitter... to space! And boy is it a trip. This video was made as a babysitter substitute for deadbeat parents who were sick of their whining kids and wished that they could blast them off into out space and spend a romantic evening by themselves at the Moon Motel in a coin-operated anti-gravity bed. Back in the day, Vitsie made that wish come true, for 30 or so minutes anyway. Who is Vitsie? Well, she is a cracked out cyborg in a mustard robo-suit with glowing eyes, ya know, someone you can really trust with your children. What are we waiting for? Let's blast off!

School is about to be back in session and if you haven't decided in a major yet why not enroll yourself into Buster Burger University to become a proud Buster Burger store manager! Of course you'll have to refrain from having sex with your classmates because there has to be some sort of thin plot line to string the semesters together. Oh, and you'll also want to avoid the pickle shaped iron maidens, being turned into a human chicken,  angry biker gangs, and Dick Butkus.

Ep. 107 “The Misery Brothers Y2K”

July 27, 2020

Join our Patreon for extra episodes and VHS goodness! Patreon.com/VHSbandits

 

This week we bring you one of Dane Train's favorite movies (spoiler: not one of KevBot's favorite movies) The Misery Brothers Y2K! What the heck is this movie? Great question, we're not sure the writers even knew. However, it does have a star-studded cast including Lou Ferrigno, Abe Vigoda, Roddy Piper, Erik Estrada as an Elvis impersonator, and a bunch of other actors who presumably owed someone a favor. This movie has it all, musical numbers, mafiosos in drag, flying plastic babies, goofball Italian goons, and lots of inexplicable chickens. If that doesn't sell you on this flick I don't know what will. So sit back, don't ask too many questions, and pop in The Misery Brothers Y2K!

Ep. 106 “Deep Rising” with Kevin James

July 13, 2020

Join our Patreon for extra episodes and VHS goodness! Patreon.com/VHSbandits

It's officially time for summer blockbusters! But we watched Deep Rising instead. For this episode, we are joined by the ultra talented filmmaker and podcaster, from Guaranteed Audio, Kevin James! Luckily for us, Kevin happens to be the official VHS Bandits Deep Rising expert.

If you think watching Harrison Ford kick some aquatic alien ass on a cruise ship sounds awesome then you're in for a treat! Treat Williams that is, because Harrison Ford isn't in this movie. But hey, Dead Heat rules so there's that. With a plot that has about as many holes as the sinking ship, it takes place on Deep Rising will keep you on the edge of your crap-trap until you're sucked in by a toilet tremor!

Check out all of Kevin's work and more that we mention in the episode because, seriously, everything this dude makes is gold and right up any VHS Bandit's alley.

Kevin's latest video game documentary "Not for Resale" is available now and a must for physical media lovers like us! "Not For Resale examines the sea change in video gaming from physical media to the digitally distributed future, featuring interviews with store owners, game developers, journalists, and  preservationists about what lies ahead for the world of physical media  and how it affects more than just video games."

It's Lorenzo Lamas month here on the podcast and we're kicking it off with a very special episode. This marks our 101 regular episode milestone! Our very first episode was "SnakeEater 2: The Drug Buster" and if it weren't for this series of films this show may have never existed. That movie was just too good not to do a podcast on. Along the way, we also covered "SnakeEater 3: His Law" and now we bring it around full circle, like a snake eating its own tail, with the original SnakeEater! Soldier Kelly must rescue his sister from a band of backwoods kidnappers. Will he be able to take them on? Of course, he will! He's Lorenzo Lamas!

It's officially Monkey Month and we're opening the season with the Matt LeBlanc vehicle "Ed". A monkey joining a minor league baseball team was the perfect pitch for the studios to greenlight funding. That pitch being a bunch of 90s jumbled together ideas for a cash grab kids movie. Sitcom star to pull in the parents: check. Guy in a monkey suit: check. Fart jokes: check. America's favorite pastime: check. A plot replaced by a series of random events: check. Rewind your tapes and wind up your pitching arm for Ed!

Then go watch "Poolboy 2: Drowning out the Fury" because he does that, or you could just watch this movie and drink enough Diet Juicy Squirt until Wings Hauser looks enough like Richard Karn to satisfy your darkest fantasies. Much like most things we watch this film makes little to no sense but we do our best to break down the complexities of it's fine film making craftsmanship.

85 - Your Movie Warehouse Video Store

September 9, 2019

As the summer winds down Dane Train took one last vacation trip up to Wolfeboro, NH. Lake Winnipesaukee is a beautiful place and the best part about the area is a small brick n' mortar video store, Your Movie Warehouse. Laura, the owner, has been in business for 13 years selling DVDs, BluRays and wall-to-wall VHS. It's a real treasure trove of movie heaven and you never know what you're going to find. The nostalgia kicks in immediately as it's the closest thing to a real video store of the golden days you can get today. Stop in to this little shop to hear Dane and Laura talk about the store's history, it's importance to the local community, physical media, sustainability, and more.

This podcast has been an amazing experience for us. We started the show doing what we did anyway: watching tapes with pals, eating junk food, laughing and talking about the movie. Little did we know how many other tape heads were out there who share our passion for film in the era of the video store. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to be a part of this amazing and ever-growing community.
 
Back in 2015, there were only three VHS Bandits. Over the years we've seen that number grow and grow and we are honored to have you, the listeners, as full-fledged VHS Bandits.
 
Thank you.

80 “Dee Snider’s Strangeland”

July 1, 2019

This week we're joined by Sully from the Wrassle Flicks podcast to watch a movie with more nipple rings than the breastfeeding station at Ozzfest and arguably the best Netsploitation film ever made: Dee Snider's Strangeland. The year is 1998 and Cyber Predators are cyber predating the world wide web for victims. The most notorious digital villain is the body modification/tribal tattoo obsessed Captain Howdy, played by Dee Snider himself. Full of late 90s nu-metal and fake movie internet, you're gonna want to re-open your Dead Journal because Strangeland is one for the e-books!

79 “Where Did I Come From? Narrated by Howie Mandel”

June 17, 2019

This week's show is all about education as we take a look at a tape from our WTF section to learn about where babies come from the way that God intended us to learn, via naked cartoons narrated by Howie Mandel. For instance, did you know that babies start as sperm and have to race against covert sleeper cell sharks? Well, you'll learn that and more on this weeks episode as Howie Mandel answers the age-old question "Where did I come from?"

78 “Kick Ass Wrestling: School’s Out”

June 3, 2019

This week we had a blast from our own past and watched Kick Ass Wrestling: School's Out. What is KAW? It was an early 2000s backyard wrestling promotion put on by high schoolers in Shrewsbury, MA. Two of the premiere wrestlers involved were none other than your hosts KevBot and Topher Hansson, although this episode was before their time. Join us for a shitload of DDTs, an indestructible plywood table, and karaoke machine commentators as we relive the glory days of Kick Ass Wrestling!

Since this is such an ultra rare tape nobody has ever seen outside of Shrewsbury we have digitized it and uploaded it to TouTube for everyone to watch along, just click the link below. We'll see you in the ring! ...and by ring, we mean mattresses laid on the ground covered by a tarp.

76 “Dr. Alien!”

May 8, 2019

All three Bandits are back together in person with an appointment to see Dr. Alien! A martian disguises itself as a sexy college science teacher and injects glow stick sex juice into a nerd's butt. He transforms from Steve Urkel to Stephan Ur-kel overnight becoming irresistible to women while an alien worm pops out from his scalp just like in FROM BEYOND! It's all a mad science experiment to repopulate an alien race. Get ready for laser guns, LOTS of party hats, 80s new wave sunglasses, Creep-O-Ziods cereal, heavy metal and station wagon burnouts in the sci-fi teen sex comedy hit DR. ALIEN!

74 “Baby Huey’s Great Easter Adventure”

April 15, 2019

Finding an Easter special on VHS can be like an egg hunt...but boy did we find the golden (or rotten) egg!

The beloved beer gut buffoon cartoon character Baby Huey is back and this time in his first and only live action home videocassette. And it's a musical...well the second half is. A Las Vegas sleazeball duo and Nazi middle school science teacher are trying to kidnap and exploit Baby Huey (just like in the Sesame Street movie Follow That Bird). It's up to a guy in a giant duck costume to keep breaking things obliviously in order to save Easter! It's a kooky bananas off the rails holiday special that doesn't mention anything about the actual holiday at all. Happy Easter Zombie Jesus, everybody!

WARNING: This episode of the VHS Bandits Podcast is a CHOKING HAZARD - Small Parts. Not for children under 3 years.

73 “Secret Adventures: Snap, How to Act like a Responsible Almost-Adult”

April 1, 2019

This week we watched a film with a title just as long and just as confusing as the movie itself, Secret Adventures: Snap, How to Act like an almost Responsible-Adult. Now with a title like that, you'd probably assume it would be an educational video teaching you how to be more independent. Well, you'd be wrong because it's actually about a talking toaster speaking to a girl who loses children that she's supposed to be babysitting but instead brings them along into her acid trip transforming them into cartoon dogs. Now that's a secret adventure, enjoy!

72 “Child World/Children’s Palace Video Toy Chest”

March 25, 2019

Child World and Children's Palace were toy stores back in the 80s and 90s and, unlike Toys R Us, they went bankrupt and out of business before it was cool. This week we watched their promotional tape full of 1990  goodness and a rapping creepazoid named Robo T. in the tape group of kids produce their own TV show which is just a bunch of toy commercials because they're sellouts and have no qualms about compromising their art.

70 “Expect No Mercy”

February 18, 2019

The VHS Bandits have seen the future and it isn't real... It's Virtual, but also still real. Real enough anyway for Belly, I mean, Billy Blanks to kick some ass. It's up to him and also some other dude, and also a Sonya Blade rip off, to defeat the evil Virtual Arts Academy, the subsidiary of ITT Tech where the students master in becoming virtual (but also real) assassins! There's even a video game based on the film. So pop in the tape/floppy disk/cartridge with us and Expect No Mercy!

It's a post-Y2K world where anything can happen. Most notably, a government experiment gone wrong creating a genetically enhanced "every-snake" killer python! Casper Van Dien plays a southern bell who is the leader of the Snake Patrol Unit of the U.S. Military and will stop at nothing to destroy this reptile of unusual size. Robert Englund is a snake doctor who will also stop at nothing to destroy this reptile of unusual size. Some other dude plays a chemical plant owner/extreme BMX biker who will also... you get it. Join as we watch this Ginanimal of a film, Python!

68 “Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers”

January 21, 2019

Not quite episode 69 but we just couldn't wait! This week we watched Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers. Sometimes you investigate missing person cases and sometimes those missing people turn out to be a part of an ancient chainsaw worshiping cult of prostitutes. For Jack, this is one of those times.

67 “Invisible Dad”

January 7, 2019

"Now you see him. Now you don't!" Those 90s kids movies where the people on the cover aren't even in the movie...this is one of them. When a kid discovers a wish-granting machine, he accidentally turns his old man into...INVISIBLE DAD! Wacky adventures ensue as they try to stop a shady contractor from building a mall out of cheap lousy bricks. Invisible Dad also has an invisible smooch with his son's school teacher. Also the kid wishes a babe with some serious party hats to appear in his bedroom and says he's an alien that's going to probe her invisible butt. Grab your earbuds and a mop with your non-invisible hands! This looks like a job for Invisible Dad!

66 “The Christmas Toy”

December 24, 2018

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the Video Basement not a creature was stirring...except The Three Wise VHS Bandits watching a Jim Henson 80's yuletide toy TV special about dolls, action figures and stuffed animals coming to life competing for the love of a young girl on Christmas morning. Living toys attempt to trek from the playroom to the Christmas tree in the living room without being caught...or else THEY DIE. It's a real touching holiday tale about jealousy, egotism and friendship that seemingly inspired Toy Story and Child's Play. Grab some candy canes and hot cocoa. Plug in the tree and pop in those earbuds. Get settled in to hear the VHS Bandits talk about THE CHRISTMAS TOY.

🎄The VHS Bandits Christmas Mix Tape, Super Dracula's Ghoul Night Christmas Special Featuring Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, and the VHS Bandit's very own full-length Christmas movie The Bestest Christmas Ever are available NOW for FREE at this link through December 31st, 2018🎅🏿:

Magellan, Eureeka, Batley and the rest are putting on a Christmas play to an audience of nobody. Magellan seeks a pre-trimmed tree out in the forest and gets lost.
