GLRL Minisode 6: “Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers” (1988)

GreenLightRedLightLogo2BigIf you’ve ever wanted to watch a movie starring Bruce Springsteen’s younger sister as a girl who used to be a boy, then strap in, because we watched Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers!  A sequel to the 1981 horror / transphobia film Sleepaway Camp, 1989’s Sleepaway Camp II stars Pamela Springsteen as the “reformed” slasher from the first film, though it takes basically no time at all for her to go back to her murderous ways.  Check it out!

The Special Edition Blu-Ray re-release is available for preorder from Amazon, along with a DVD version, and Watch Instantly:

GLRL Episode 5: “Meet the Feebles” (1989) with Aaron Buell

GreenLightRedLightLogo2Big

It’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves at one point or another: What if Peter Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings, decided to do an acid head version of The Muppet Show as a movie?  Well, it turns out the answer was waiting for us all along in the form of 1989’s Meet the Feebles!  Aaron Buell (2 Guys, a Girl, and a Goblin) joins us as we watch a movie featuring a Kermit the Frog lookalike strung out on heroin, throwing knives at a hedgehog and having Deer Hunter style Vietnam flashbacks, a morbidly obese hippo with a food addiction, a puppet fly that eats feces from toilet, a fox who sings about sodomy, and much more!

Meet the Feebles is available from Amazon through the link below:

GLRL Episode 4: “Starcrash” (1978) with Lauren Wood

GreenLightRedLightLogo2Big

After the disappointment of S. Darko, we couldn’t have been more pleased with the awesome spectacle of 1970’s Italian film making that is Starcrash.  Caroline Munro as Stella Star jiggles her way through 94 minutes of pure camp, complimented by the immensely talented Christopher Plummer, and a pre-Knight Rider David Hasselhoff.  Made a scant 18 months after Star Wars, Starcrash is a blatant attempt to cash in on Lucas’ success.  This movie features all the things you loved about Star Wars, just done on a much lower budget and with less skill: Droids!…Sort of  Not quite light sabers!  Man torpedoes!  We’re joined by Lauren Wood to talk about all this and more in this Italian gem.

Video: How to Make a Nic Cage Film in 6 Minutes or Less

We always knew that Nicolas Cage was a…National Treasure, but thanks to the folks at CinemaSins, we have a concise breakdown on exactly what it is that makes him so great. A disturbing number of the clips from this video are from the film we watched for the pilot of Green Light, Red Light, the 1989 classic Vampire’s Kiss, so we were excited / horrified to see them.

We’re glad the CinemaSins folks were able to watch so much Nic Cage without succumbing, unlike poor Abed…

GLRL Episode 3: “S. Darko” (2009) with Katie B.

S. Darko or “If only Mike Ditka was driving the bus…”GreenLightRedLightLogo2Big

If you liked 2001’s Donnie Darko, be prepared to hate the direct to DVD sequel S. Darko!  Set years after the events of Donnie Darko, S. Darko follows Donnie’s unicorn loving little sister, Samantha, as she sort of indie rock girls her way across the American Southwest.  In making what is essentially a rehashing of the first movie, the creators of S. Darko somehow failed to understand the universe Donne Darko created, creating one of the most infuriating sequels we’ve ever watched.  The movie may suck, but this episode doesn’t, so check it out!

S. Darko is available from Amazon on DVD, Blu-Ray, and Amazon Instant Video.

GLRL Minisode 3: “S. Darko” (2009)

Well, it only took us 3 movies to find one that was an absolute stinker.  S. Darko is the sequel to the much better 2001 movie, Donnie Darko, and follows Donnie’s younger sister Samantha.  Aside from one producer and the titular lead Daveigh Chase, no one who worked on the first movie worked on this sequel, which is usually the mark of quality.  Check out the Minisode, and we’ll be back next week to slog through this utter disappointment.

S. Darko is available from Amazon on DVD, Blu-Ray, and Amazon Instant Video.

GLRL Episode 2: “Vampire’s Kiss” (1988) with Eric H

GreenLightRedLightLogo2Big

The original pilot to Green Light, Red Light, we decided to release this second, because Hausu was such a ridiculous bit of nonsense, but we couldn’t not release it after what we put Eric through. For episode 2, we tackle the 1988 Nicolas Cage movie Vampire’s Kiss.  If you ever wondered where the creepy Nic Cage meme came from, you’ve now found it.  That’s this movie.  It’s actually one of the less weird things Cage does throughout the film.  Check it out!

I've seen the future, and it's "Season of the Witch!"
