On Green Light, Red Light, we watch bad movies, hoping to find the ones that are so bad, they’re good.  Each week, host Sammy Kampersal is joined by Jim Kliss and Nate Sullivan, along with a rotating special guest, to talk about what they’ve watched, and decide if it’s worthy of a green light.

 

If you want to contact us with corrections, suggestions, or just have something to add about the movies, email us at greenlightpod [at] gmail.com

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

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 […]

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

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

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 […]

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

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 […]

GLRL Minisode 2: “Vampire’s Kiss” (1988)

For episode 2, we tackle the 1988 Nicolas Cage movie Vampire’s Kiss.  By this point, Nic Cage had already starred in films like Moonstruck and Raising Arizona, so we knew he was capable of something good, but things take a sharp turn to the absurd in this movie that launched a thousand memes.  Seriously, that […]

GLRL Episode 1: “House (Hausu)” (1977)

Welcome to the first full episode of Green Light, Red Light!  This week’s movie is House or Hausu, a 1977 Japanese “horror” movie that follows 7 girls as they try to survive the night in a haunted house intent on eating them.  That’s the easy description, though the movie defies almost any attempt to classify […]

Nate Sullivan

Host – “Green Light, Red Light”

Born in Kentucky, the child known as “Nate” could feel he was bound for great things! The child wandered the country being raised on televisions from store windows. As he grew, Nate learned of tropes, genres, and cinematography. He studied the greats, and learned their methods and what made them unique, but one day a shadow passed over him. The fog of “B-Movies” crept into Nate’s life, and the child became captivated. From “Manos” to “The Room” the child set out to view as many ridiculous films as he could. Now he works with others to share the knowledge they have learned from staring into the cinematic abyss.
