Spoilers for the following:
Humanoids of the Deep
Ms. 45
Last House on the Left
I Spit on Your Grave
Death Wish series
Descent (Rosario Dawson)
Galaxy of Terror
Mother's Day
Savage Streets
Death Proof

Corrections: Destiny can't find any proof that the Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine performed on MTV's Spring Break aside from her memory. The documentary featuring Roger Corman and Doris Wishman is titled Schlock: The Secret History of American Movies. Ezra Miller will be 20 in September, and Destiny is still unsure of how she feels about his looks. Ms. 45 was an American movie directed by American, Abel Ferrara. Apparently the gross poster for I Spit on Your Grave is an exact replica of the original. (Disappointing!)

Episode 9: Why Does John Wayne Gacy John Wayne Gacy?

This week, the Badland Girls discuss their obsessions, from doll collecting to dead celebrities of yesteryear. They also introduce Orlok, their new vampire bat! Number of "fucks" in this episode: 38

Spoiler Alert for the Following:
Lost (slight character relationship stuff)

Corrections: Montgomery Clift's last movie was The Defector in 1966. Destiny meant to say that Clark Gable died of a heart attack, but for some reason she forgot to correct herself. In 1965, Johnny Cash's truck caught fire, causing a forest fire that killed 49 California Condors. The Radiohead messageboard at Green Plastic is called Mortigi Tempo. The correct Superbad quote is, "My brother came here all the way from Scottsdale, Arizona to be here tonight and you're not gonna sing?" Sheena Easton did "Sugar Walls," not the Mary Jane Girls. The Samantha Doll that Rhea is referring to is the Victorian American Girl Doll.
