We close out our Spooktacularly Funny Summer Scare-a-thon with the absolutely lackluster Dr. Hackenstein. There is tons of potential here, but it just isn’t explored in any memorable way – so we explore it for them by taking their premise and trying to make it better. Josh also takes a bold stance of the fate of crusty old deans.
We prepare for the end of summer by revealing the last movie in our Summer Scare-a-thon Spooktacular Special Marathon (or WHATEVER we’ve been calling it). If only Dr. Hackenstein was actually about a computer hacker and not a lame retread of Frankenstein (probably! We haven’t watched it yet!).
We’re heading to the Yuppie-filled beach in this week’s episode on the 1987 supernatural comedy Hunk. Just how hunky is this hunk? Why is the devil a time traveller? What exactly IS included in the Yuppie Program? Some of these questions will be answered!
We gamed the system a little bit for next week’s movie, the selling-my-soul-to-the-devil-to-be hot comedy Hunk, but I can guarantee it won’t reach the dizzying heights we predict it will in today’s mini episode.
We continue our summer series of supernatural comedies with the aptly-named My Mom’s A Werewolf. This movie’s got it all: cheap-looking werewolves, John Saxon being a creep, a visit to a very weird dentist, and a man with the excellent name Lou Lamont (or does it?).
