When a horror buff who's not the same girl on the tape's box art surfs the early 2000's world wide web and downloads a just-deceased struggling comedian and taxi driver it's a a race against time to win the Halloween Haunted House contest, find an Egyptian cat artifact and get the ghost to heaven. Joined by special spooky guest, Kamarra, the Bandits eat the greasiest pizza ever and try out Mountain Dew's new Voo Doo mystery soda. It's a Netsploitation Halloween adventure!

Ep 87 Halloween Special: Jack-O

October 7, 2019

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

A pumpkin-headed monster conjured up as a tool for revenge is the concept for one of our favorite horror films, and also... Jack-O. What PumpkinHead lacks in literal pumpkin heads Jack-O makes up for. And what detailed mythology and character development PumpkinHead excels at Jack-O skims right through and gets straight to goofy Halloween madness. Dust off your VCR, pop in some night toast, celebrate Halloween the VHS Bandit way and join us as we watch Jack-O!

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.

Kwansu, dudes! The fictitious country of Something-or-Other is under the domination of and evil Leslie Nielsen and it's up to two surfer dude princes, and Rob Schneider, to restore the country to what it once was.

Somehow a movie about a zombie cop manages to be a better Resident Evil movie than the actual Resident Evil movie. Get your VCR's ready this summer and beat the heat... dead.

The year is... the future and in a post-apocalyptic Burger King Wasteland only one industry thrives: Robot Laser Taxis. A threat arises in a Chinese restaurant franchisee who wants to take over the world, presumably by implementing a high sodium diet via way of a robot takeover, giving a whole new meaning to restaurant automation. Only one taxi driver can stop him: some guy who looks kinda like Jake Busey. Can he save the already un-saveable world? Find out as we watch Full Moon's Robot Wars!

It's a real summer bummer at camp New Horizons where underprivileged 20-somethings go to camp with overprivileged 20-somethings. Last year the camp was met with a series of murders by the hands of disgruntled counselor Angela, but that couldn't happen again, right? Well, spoiler, it does! The body count is higher and the budget is lower and that's why we watched Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland!

Special Announcement!

Our brand new Patreon: patreon.com/VHSbandits
 
We've been hard at work at the podcast trying to put this together for a while, as our overhead has become daunting. We wanted to create a Patreon in order to limit the burden on us and also give back to our most dedicated fans and listeners, both new and those who have been with us for the past four years.
 
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!

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.

It's all a mad science experiment to repopulate an alien race.

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!

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.

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!

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!

'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.

Plug in the tree and pop in those earbuds. Get settled in to hear the VHS Bandits talk about THE CHRISTMAS TOY.

December 18, 2017

The Bandits trim the tree and deck the VCR with their local fan and pal Dan Alicata to bring you another yuletide podcast.

Forget santa-clad killers Billy and Ricky from the previous Silent Night Deadly Nights...this is an all new tale of boring barely-holiday body horror to help put you to sleep. And if you die before you wake...thank you...?
