Mankillers (1987) brings director David A. Prior back to the show, as he tells us the story of an all-girl squad of inmates-turned-mercenaries out to take down a drug agent gone rogue in Columbia. (Or Columbia, South Carolina – we’re not sure.) Will this combination of Hell Squad and Deadly Prey work for us?
In the second half we briefly revisit Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) and the series in general before Maki reviews Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond (2016), Harlo’s pinball journey continues with Barb Wire (1996) and we close out the show (and the year) with some heartwarming e-mails. Enjoy!
Deadliest Prey (2013) is the return of Mike Danton as he’s once again pulled into the dangerous game of man huntin’ by the evil Hogan in the sequel to BMFcast favorite David A. Prior’s classic Deadly Prey! Pretty much anyone that survived the first movie reprises their role in what amounts to a remake. Plus there are hackers and webcams. Does it work?
After the break we talk X-Men: Apocalypse, Step-Brothers, Electric Boogaloo: The Wild Untold Story of Cannon Films, and take some listener e-mails that devolve into JapaniMAY madness. Enjoy!
The Final Sanction (1990) is our movie of the week as we pay tribute to the late David A. Prior and Robert Z’Dar. Ted Prior is back to represent the US in a mano a mano showdown vs. USSR to end nuclear conflict.
White Fury (1990) is our latest foray into the filmography of BMFcast alum David A. Prior (Deadly Prey, Killer Workout, Invasion Force). How does this odd mix of snowboarding and cabin-invasion fare by comparison?
After the break we discuss Kung Fury, the Kickstarter sensation that doesn’t quite live up to they hype for us. Harlo catches up with Rocky III and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water (it was a weird weekend), Chuck revisits Contact, and then we answer some listener e-mails. Enjoy!
Invasion Force (1990) is our next foray into the world of David A. Prior. and like the prior Prior movies, it’s a wonder of low budgetness. A film crew making an action movie must thwart would-be terrorists from taking over a town and holding the inhabitants hostage.
Deadly Prey (1987) may be a low budget First Blood ripoff, but it’s got plenty going for it that John Rambo didn’t have till two sequels later – a HUGE body count. Oh and more mullets and tinier jean shorts.
Then in the second half we take some listener voicemails which answer many questions regarding myths, jobs and blood filled condoms. We also talk Winter’s Bone, The Mechanic and Exit Through the Gift Shop.
