Corrections: The Wonder Woman makeup line was done by M.A.C. Cosmetics, not Sephora. (Who cares, I buy all my makeup from Walgreens.--R) The movie that Tracie mentioned where Bill Murray and Olivia Williams are reunited is called Hyde Park on Hudson.

Episode 17: Clubbing with my Coven

This week, the Badland Girls sit down with Matthew Marko of No Name Movie blog to talk about his rampant cinephilia, old cartoons, and James Bond. Thanks to BG superfan, @TC_Hillbop for the sweet cover of our theme song! This week's fuck count: 4 (WHAAAAT.)

Spoiler alerts for the following:
Cabin in the Woods
Drag Me to Hell
Hostel 2

Corrections: Cronenberg's The Fly came out in 1986, so Rhea was actually two instead of three years old when her Dad took her to see that movie in theaters. The 3-D Nightmare on Elm Street is called Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare. The actress that is in Trouble in Mind and Footloose is Lori Singer. Kris Kristofferson is the star of Trouble in Mind, not Tom Skerritt.

Lyrics for this episode:

School Blues
School’s been really hard
I’ve been really busy
That Linguistics transcription?
That almost killed me!
I’m behind on Game of Thrones
And I missed Drag Race
I just wanna stay home
Cause I got the school blues
Two finals baby
And a ten page paper—help me!
But I’m almost done
I can see the light
But before I get there
Gotta cram all night
I’m behind on Game of Thrones
And I missed Drag Race
I just wanna stay home
Cause I got the school blues
Two finals baby
And a ten page paper—help me!
Yeah, two finals baby
And a ten page paper—someone help me!

Ode to a Chopping Mall
Our story starts at a mall in the 1980s
These guys working there want to stay after hours and drink beer and fuck the girls they are dating
But there’s this nerdy girl and there’s this nerdy guy
And they don’t want to go to the party but they have to because their friends set them up tonight
And when they meet fireworks go off
Angels sing
And other mushy stuff
But there’s a problem
There always is in movies like this
Because these teens are in a chopping, chopping mall
No shopping at all, killer robots in control
See the robots were there for the mall’s protection
But then a lightning storm fucked up their systems
And now they are out for blood
Killing people and stuff
They electrocuted a janitor
And crushed a dude’s windpipe
They set a girl on fire
But the best kill of the night
Was this girl who went looking for her boyfriend but when she found him he was dead
And then a killer robot popped out of this door and she was filled with dread
And it chased her down this hallway shooting laser beams from its eyes
And she was screaming for help as she got shot in the ass and thighs
But by the time her friends heard her she was totally fucked
And she screamed one last time before that robot blew her head up
Yes, that robot blew her head up
And her brains exploded across the floor
And blood dripped down the windows and she was no more
You see, these teens were in a chopping, chopping mall
No shopping at all, killer robots in control
In control

Pink Raygun Song
If you like TV and movie reviews
And if you like a feminist point of view
If you want to know what zombies think
And if you like the color pink
Then Pink Raygun is the site for you!
Then Pink Raygun is the site for you!
It's a lot of fun!
So, go on
Cause Pink Raygun is the site for you
Yes you
