Merry Christmas B-Movie Cast fans! This episode has a special holiday treat from France: “Deadly Games” AKA “3615 Code Père Noël”. It’s the film that we’re pretty sure John Hughes watched in 1989 and said “let’s do that only with 3 Stooges humor instead of murder”. It’s “Home Alone” on steroids and a first for Mary and Juan. Now let’s see if Nic’s …

This episode of the B-movie Cast is a Juan pic- "El Monstruo de los Volcanes" from 1963.

In this episode of the B-Movie Cast Mary and Nic are joined by author Fiona Young-Brown. Fiona has a lot to say about our movie: “Squirm”.

Mary, who’s…

Mark has been wanting to do his favorite Hammer Studios film with us on the show so we’re checking out the Hammer film that some people forgot: “The Damned” (AKA- “These are the Damned”).

In this episode of the B-Movie Cast Mary and Nic are joined by Juan. The 70s and 80s are great and all, but it was time to head back to our B-Movie roots. We looked at the films we’d covered and realized that there were a couple of startling holes in our 50s’ movie coverage. One of them was the classic film “This Island Earth”! The gang gets out ou…
 
The B-Movie Cast is back… sort of. We recorded a few episodes in preparation for Mary going off the air for 6-8 weeks during the nuclear plant shutdown she works at called ‘the outage’. What we didn’t know when we put these episodes ‘in the can’ was that Mary would be opting out of doing the outage this year due to health concerns. Don’t worry, she…
 
This episode of the B-Movie cast is a bit different. Mary was going to be out of touch for 8-12 weeks with the nuclear plant shutdown she normally works.

This time on The B-Movie Cast, Mary, Nic and Juan are checking out the second lost continent of Caprona film with the AIP 1977 film “The People That Time Forgot”. It’s the sequel to the film from our last podcast on “The Land That Time Forgot” and begs the question, what’s wrong with time that it keeps forgetting stuff? This time we have Patrick Wa…
 
This episode of the B-Movie Cast Mary, Nic, and Juan get literary… well, sort of. The gang is checking out the 1975 adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' “The Land That Time Forgot”!

On this episode of the B-Movie Cast Mary, Nic and Juan are back and we’re asking a hard-hitting question: What do you get when you cross Native American lore, The 1970s and filmmaker William Girdler? Well it looks like it’s a topless woman shooting lasers out of her hands at the reincarnated spirit of an ancient Native American Shaman who grew from…
