We’ve Moved to Podbean.com

Good Movies For Bad People is now hosted on Podbean at goodmoviesforbadpeople.podbean.com

I’ve been updating this site with recent episodes of the podcast since the show started, but to be frank I haven’t been updating it as often as I should have and those of you who are subscribed to our show via RSS or iTunes have been getting much more timely updates than those of you who come to this site.

While I appreciate those of you who still arrive at our podcast via this site, it’s just become an additional chore to update. We are no longer hosted on Libsyn, and I’m much happier with the service provided by Podbean. Please update your bookmarks to our Podbean page, as that is going to be the home of the podcast from now on.

I appreciate all of you who have been following this site since its beginning as a place to post my written reviews. You are why I started writing about film and its because of your support that I transitioned into podcasting as well. I will continue to occasionally update this site with reviews and lists, but these updates won’t be a regular thing.


Older episodes that were once linked to our Libsyn account will no longer play from this site, but you can still listen to older episodes from our Podbean page

One-Shot Review: Violent Shit – The Movie (2015)

On this one-shot review Christian checks out violent Shit: The Movie (2015), the debut release from Reel Gore Releasing, a new label founded by Nico B. of Cult Epics and Steve Aquilina to release films of extreme horror and gore into the North American market. 

Violent Shit: The Movie is a new film in the Violent Shit series but also a departure point, as this is the first film in the series made without any involvement from series co-creator Andreas Schnass, who co-directed the last movie in the series, Karl the Butcher Vs. Axe (2010) with Timo Rose. This new film, directed by Luigi Pastore, blends together the aesthetics of the neo-giallo with the extreme German gore that the series is known for.

The movie also features cameos from Italian exploitation veterans like actor Giovanni Lombardo Radice, and directors Luigi Cozzi and Enzo G. Castellari, and a score from Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin.

Episode 24 – Dr. Butcher and his Sexy Sorceress


On this episode, Christian takes a look at some recent Blu-ray and DVD releases. First up, he heads into the cannibal and zombie-filled jungle of Severin Films release of Dr. Butcher M.D./Zombi Holocaust (1980), one of the most fun films in the Italian Cannibal and Zombie genres. Then, things get steamy as he reviews the Synapse Films release of Sorceress (1995), a softcore erotic-horror movie starring Julie Strain and Linda Blair. Last but not least, he reviews the Full Moon DVD release of Jess Franco’s Sexy Sisters (1977), and that’s where things get weird.

Also discussed on this episode are some upcoming book releases, including Richard Glenn Schmidt’s Cinema Somnambulist, Satanic Panic: Pop Cultural Paranoia in the 1980s, edited by Kier-La Janisse and Paul Corupe, and the upcoming release of Bleeding Skull: A 1990s Trash-Horror Odyssey!
Music for this episode by Nico Fidenco.
