Ep #44: RoboCop 3

Ep #44: RoboCop 3

2022-05-2601:23:34

Don't think we've gone Hollywood or anything, but Fred Dekker gave his career so that we could have this insane threequel! ROBOCOP 3 (1993) casts a sans-Weller RoboCop in a PG-13 Detroit - filled with splatter punks, ninjas, and jetpacks - in the hopes of telling a brand new story the same way again. Dead or alive, creeps, you'll buy that for a dollar! INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | FACEBOOK
Boot up, kiddos - it's a blast from the past! Cold War agitprop goes full technophobe in TERMINAL ENTRY (1987), which makes WarGames look like kid's stuff. We dive into all the 8-bitty gritty with star & gentleman Patrick Labyorteaux! It's not just an episode, it's a warning...  INSTAGRAM  |  FACEBOOK  |  TWITTER
Ep #41: Tiger Claws 2 & 3

Ep #41: Tiger Claws 2 & 3

2022-04-0701:19:08

It's a Video High double feature! The class re-enters the tournament ring for TIGER CLAWS 2 and TIGER CLAWS 3. Forget everything you know about Tiger Claws. Because now there's magic, time travel, time-travel-magic and (sigh) even less Cynthia Rothrock. But which is the class' favorite? What's the "Indiana Jones problem"? And what rhymes with "Tarek"? Step through the magic Stargate to ancient China to find out! INSTAGRAM  |  FACEBOOK  |  TWITTER
The class hitches a ride back to visit Uncle Miguel but must contend with The Prince of Magic and his MASTER! Who could it be, we wonder? We'll have to summon all our squiggle magic to find out and join Lando, Renzo, and a host of snake people to crack open the secrets of THE KILLING OF SATAN (1983)! INSTAGRAM  |  FACEBOOK  |  TWITTER
Ep #39: Tiger Claws

Ep #39: Tiger Claws

2022-03-1001:16:48

2022 is the year of the tiger, so Video High starts a new semester with the DTV Jalal Merhi martial-arts movie megalith, TIGER CLAWS (1991). So many questions... Can Detective Tarek stop the Death Dealer, played by Bolo Yeung, by becoming a master of Tiger Claw style kung fu without becoming a killer himself? Can Cynthia Rothrock be there to help sometimes? Can anonymous wall hole sex prevent the spread of COVID? Somehow all these answers lie in Canada, the New York of the North. Claws out, yall. INSTAGRAM  |  FACEBOOK  |  TWITTER
Dearest classmates, Video High will be taking a brief hiatus. So we called the school into the auditorium to talk reboot culture, discuss our favorite remakes, and work out how to come back sexier, woker, and commercially viabler. Stay tuned! INSTAGRAM  |  TWITTER  |  FACEBOOK
Ep #38: Trancers

Ep #38: Trancers

2022-01-2001:17:17

It’s Christmas in July in January as the class time travels down the line for TRANCERS (1984)! A Terminator era tale of a bounty hunter named Deth  traveling back in time to stop a psychic-zombie cult by inhabiting the body of his ancestor and bagging a baddie. (And by baddie, we mean Helen Hunt. Grrrowl!) Nothing puts you in the holiday spirit like time traveling cops and psychic serial killers, right? So curl up next to the ashes of your yule log, grab a mug of expired eggnog, and join us for the most festive podcast you'll hear all month. Merry Schlock-mas! INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | FACEBOOK
The class reads the runes of these sacred cinematic texts to pierce the veil of time and comprehend the year 2022… - SOYLENT GREEN (1973) - THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON (1990) - TIME RUNNER (1993) - NO ESCAPE (1994) INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | FACEBOOK
The Video High class starts this holiday season with a deep meowtaphysical quandary: Cats or Death? If the deliriously delicious disease horror-comedy THE CARRIER (1988) has taught us anything, it's that can be a much more complicated question than it seems. So we’re making this a family practice by bringing sister extraordinaire Alana Regan into the classroom to diagnose our woes and dissect this perfectly imperfect allegory for our quarantine years.

Despite what BLOOD RAGE (1987) may think, very few people truly mistake blood for cranberry sauce. But that doesn't stop this cornucopia of carnage! Filled to the brim with blood, guts, weirdos, maniacs, and more - Blood Rage proves that we always have something more to be thankful for. Artist and friend Chloe Medghalchi (@lil.somethin) returns to our Thanksgiving table, unless her evil twin has something to say about it. INSTAGRAM | TWITTER
Have you ever wondered: what is a ninja? Before 80s gave us ninja shellshock, you may not have known. Thankfully there were movies like SAKURA KILLERS (1987) to learn ya but good. Shuriken! Smoke bombs! A lot more wiggling than we were expecting! When a deadly beta tape is stolen, star of the film Chuck Connors knows what to do: get someone else to go get it. Filmmaker and cinematographer Sharif El Neklawy (@sweetsharif) cuts it up with the rest of the class on a field trip through Taiwan's best teppanyaki joints. INSTAGRAM | TWITTER
Iiii wanna knoooow... Have you ever seen THE DEVIL'S RAIN? Yes, it's the Ernest Borgnine goat man movie. But is it more? Can William Shatner and Tom Skerritt take down this devil in the dust before the fires of hell consume them? The class is joined by the inhabitants of Bunk 237 and that of course means everything's about to get absolutely soaking wet INSTAGRAM |  TWITTER | FACEBOOK

Ep #33: The Demon Lover

2021-10-1401:22:25

Happy Schlocktober Classmates! This week, The Devil went down to Michigan and was looking for a whole coven of souls to steal in THE DEMON LOVER (1976). A Donald G Jackson—Jerry Younkins covenant, this exercise in "Zen Filmmaking" offers up a mess of mansplaining, karate lessons, and Ted Nugent’s house—and maybe a couple of gory teen deaths while it’s at it. AT LAST! THE TRUTH ABOUT DEMONS! INSTAGRAM |  TWITTER | FACEBOOK

Ep #32: Doctor Mordrid

Greetings true believers! This week, the doctor is in - DOCTOR MORDRID (1992) that is! Jump into a multiverse of madness where Jeffrey Combs stars as a (sadly not at all Strange) sorcerer who defends the Earth from his NYC penthouse...sound familiar? Come for Brian Thompson's meaty performance, stay for the stop motion dinosaur battle. Excelsior! INSTAGRAM |  TWITTER | FACEBOOK

Ep #31: Summer School

2021-09-1601:18:08

Just cuz it's almost the end of summer doesn't mean we can't go back for SUMMER SCHOOL (1987)! Figure out your wishes, have your learner's permit handy, and visit beautiful Venice Beach with the class as we all tear up at the thought of Denise's dyslexia subplot!

Cause it's one.. two... three strikes, you're dead in THE CATCHER (1998), a baseball slasher somehow equal parts "Halloween" and "Angels in the Outfield." We got a literal Murderers' Row with faceless maniac Johnny in the hole, and Coach is signaling for the eternally overshadowed Joe Estevez to steal the show. This time, the ball game takes YOU out.

It's a bird! It's another bird! It's a plane! It's a plane being taken down by a bird! It's BEAKS: THE MOVIE (1987)! INSTAGRAM | FACEBOOK | TWITTER
It's Olympics week and we're going for the gold with EBONY IVORY & JADE (1976)! Special guest Elsa Eli Waithe (@elsajustelsa comedian, activist, and co-host of the You're Fine podcast) joins the class to try and decipher the endless dialog and barely lit scenes.  An American track team on their way to the Olympics(?) in Hong Kong(?) are kidnapped, escape, are kidnapped again, escape again, etc. It's hard to tell, but what's clear is the true hero is none of the titular colors. It's everyone's favorite character Casey! (No, not the host) #JusticeForCasey INSTAGRAM | FACEBOOK | TWITTER

Ep #26: The Stranger

2021-06-0301:22:29

Don't let being dead get in the way of your dreams, kids. After kickboxing the whole world five times over, Kathy "The Punisher" Long rides into town as THE STRANGER (1995) to show Video High there's nothing you can't do with a mean right hook, a script full of one-liners, absolute omniscience, and other ill-defined ghost powers.
