Viewer beware you're in for an old geezer with spiders in his hair! We kick off the Halloween season with VHS Bandits Super Fan, Chase AKA @TheDVDCreep, to go trick or treating in 1996 while saying "Carly Beth" 400 times. 

The tables have turned and this time one of the bullies from the first Haunted Mask wears another haunted mask. This one comes with an AARP card, a can of V8 tomato juice and complains about young people and how he used to walk to school for miles in a blizzard. Only a porcelain symbol of love can free him from the evil powers of halloween.

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!

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!

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."

Ep. 99 “Ed”

April 6, 2020

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!

Ep. 97 “The Carpenter”

March 9, 2020

This week we watched The Carpenter! Ever wonder what it'd be like to see Al Borland go ape shit and kill a bunch of people? 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. Also consider checking out our ShitStarter Campaign for Shit-Bit the personal dookie tracker!

95 “Future Kick”

February 10, 2020

We're KICKING off Future Month with a movie about the FUTURE. On the moon rich people program virtual reality headsets while poor people live in the streets and strips clubs of Los Angelos, Planet Earth. It's up to neon blue blooded and Blue-Blocker wearing cyborg, Don "The Dragon" Wilson to KICK some asses and stop some guy from ripping people's hearts out to sell at a body modification company. Get ready for tons of recycled Roger Corman footage, stripper parts hats, unexpected gore, darkwave synth music, and Sean Penn's cyborg brother battle-damaged in green lettuce. It's FUTURE KICK...or was it all just virtual reality...????
