Johnny Spoiler and The Binge-Watchers

What’s new? Let’s see...

Seth Rogen was brought in to write jokes a last ditch effort to save RDJ’s Doctor Dolittle, which did little to save that dumpster fire when it hit cinemas with dragon farts, some obscure British filmmaker named Alan Parker died and Dave has to tell us what films he did and what films he did that we should like such as Road To Wellville about that nut Dr. Kellogg who invented corn flakes and promoted circumcisions as a cure to having sexual desires, Jean-Claude Van Damme finally gets a Netflix deal with an action comedy called, “The Last Mercenary,” Back To The Future was supposed to be fueled by Coca-Cola according to Jon Cryer, Gail Weathers will appear in Scream 5, and the internet according to Rotten Tomatoes has compiled the Top 10 Christian Slater movies.


We talk about the audience reactions to our latest Movie of the Week video entry, which is all about great movie soundtracks, and so we briefly discuss this Judgement Night movie.


We get asked about our dream movie projects.  Nicky Lates has a good idea for a 1990s horror thriller with Gary Oldman, Dave has his Expendables Christmas movie going to the Hallmark Network for their 100 Days of Christmas, and Johnny Spoiler is so jaded he proclaims he is done wanting to make any movies at all, and recounts an ill-fated vampire movie that got optioned, circulated, rewritten, and almost made.

This week on #SUMMERSLASH2020 we reviewed Baskin, which translates as “Raid.”


It is the first feature film by a Turkish horror director named Can Evrenol (pronounced like John, a common first name in Turkey, as it turns out just like the name John)


He was influenced by filmmakers like David Lynch, George Romero, and John Carpenter.


He goes on to make horror films like Housewife and The Field Guild To Evil.


Baskin is about a police squad that goes to Hell, but as their nightmare plays out it seems like they have been in Hell or Purgatory the whole time on repeat.


We compare it to Hellraiser, Event Horizon, As Above So Below, and some other horror entries.


Baskin does not do well on the Binge Now, Binge Later, or Binge Never scales because it is not an easy movie to watch, and much is sadly lost in translation.  However, we are saying it is so disturbing and horrific, which it intended, that we could not recommend it to average viewers or even new horror movie fans.


A side discussion includes talking about how bitter John Carpenter seems in interviews lately.


This week we also watched Money Heist, Legend, The Counselor (Ridley Scott’s Showgirls), Umbrella Academy Season 2, and a horror movie documentary on Shudder called In Search Of Darkness.
