MONSTER PARTY TAKES ON THE DANGEROUS MISSION OF DEFUSING SOME BOMBS!
In this episode, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, attempt to save the reputation of some of the genre's most maligned movies. It's a philosophical film challenge of monster kid proportions, that we've cleverly called... BAD MOVIE... OR IS IT?!!!
When we consider the ingredients that make a genre movie "bad," we think of things like poor scripts, laughable acting, and questionable special effects. But in certain instances, those elements can result in something quite entertaining. And even films with all the right ingredients can be misundertood and under-appreciated by both critics and audiences. It can simply be a matter of bad timing. We're talkin' to you, Zardoz!
Well luckily, the timing was right for booking the guest in this episode. She's a lifelong sci-fi fan and mega-talented writer, who has worked on such fan favorites as MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 and HANGIN' WITH DR. Z. Please welcome, for the first time on MONSTER PARTY... TAMMY GOLDEN!
NOW GO GIVE THAT TURKEY SOME LOVE! UNLESS THAT'S ILLEGAL IN YOUR STATE.
