Counter Destroy

Viewing Date: 2/21/19

Starring: No One

Plot: Joyce rents an old haunted home to pen her horror script, which releases an evil army of robot vampires, a knife-wielding demon and a battalion of otherworldly creatures (from IMDB).

Something supernatural happens
Vampires
Abrupt scene changes

Viewer Quotes:
“Why couldn’t they be in the bath together, shaving each other with a can of Barbasal.”
“Those are nice melons.”
“This is probably the most incoherent plot we’ve ever watched on a BMT.”

Things We Learned:
Rotary phones can kill.
The sacred bird can tell your fortune from sealed envelopes.
Vampires hop like rabbits.
The best way to kill someone is jumping over a car and slicing them with a putty knife.

Final Take:

Bad, and not in a good way.  We cannot recommend this movie, as it was a slog to get through.  Too bad.  There was a lot of potential here, but the mishmash of a bunch of other movies doesn’t work.

  • “Could you take Nick Cage in a fight?”  –  “No, he’s got too much crazy.”

Things We Learned

  • Trump killed all the fish in the ocean
  • In the future, people use 6 screens.
  • Nick Cage likes to sit on a porch and hold dead birds.
  • Nick Cage is never what you might expect.
  • In the future, El Caminos will be controlled by an app.

Final Take: This was pretty slow at times.  Not all that great, but not terrible.  If you’ve seen any of Nick Cage’s recent Netflix offerings, it was his same character in a different setting.  You should know what you’re getting yourself into by now.

Slay Belles

Date Watched: 12/20/18

Starring: Barry Bostwick, Richard Moll (blink and you miss him), some Belles

Plot: It’s Christmas Eve, and three cosplaying women come across the malevolent Christmas demon Krampus. The girls must team up with Santa Claus himself to battle the creature and save the world.  (From IMDB)

Rules:

  • Say or show Adventure Girls or putting up Youtube

  • Say “Krampus”

Quotes:

  • “Merry Christmas Bitch!”
  • “I’m not fat, you’re fat.”
  • “We’re trying to help the real-life Santa.”  Santa’s response… “Sup!”

Viewer Quotes:

  • “Was this filmed at Enchanted Forrest?”
  • “Chopping Santa’s head off.  It’s one of those things.  Had to be done”

Things We Learned:

  • Krampus sniffs out naughty women.
  • Santa is basically Gandolf aka the White Wizard.
  • Santa started a business with Mrs. Claus that failed, and they ended up eating the reindeer.  Then Mrs. Claus became a bartender.  Then she got into bestiality.

Final Take:

It’s a fairly entertaining romp.  I wouldn’t go out of my way for it, but it made a decent holiday Bad Movie Thursday pick.  It really should have upped the gore, nudity, and ridiculousness to really take it over the top.  At 77 minutes, it was over, done, and then easily forgotten before we had time to even finish more than a few drinks.
