Terror Troop 96: Oz-ploitation movies, football, and poo-zombies!

Terror Troop Home page“How’d you like to be the officer on doodie?”
—Boss Butcher, describing the capture and arrest of the dreaded outhouse peeper

As the Terror Troop prepares for a full assault on Episode 100, Boss Butcher leads the charge, with three awesome segments in one jam-packed show! First, he’s joined by three Ozzie co-hosts — Dan of the Dead, and Hellhunter and Stu Baulk from the Midnight Movie Cowboys Podcast — for a free-wheeling discussion of many things Australian (mainly football!).

Then Bloody Lizzy joins The Boss for a discussion and review of one of the most bizarre and offensive movies ever, ever, ever made. Ever. That’s right, it’s Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead (2011), directed by Noboru Iguchi! Lizzy (who constantly amazes us with her encyclopedic recollection of fascinating factoids) also explains some of the cultural and creative forces that led to the inception of the film!

Then Boss B and Willis Wheeler hold court with director Vito Trabucco as he describes the making of his comedy/retro-slasher, Bloody Bloody Bible Camp (2012), which introduces a new monster to the gallery: the terrifying Sister Mary Chopper! It’s a great discussion, as Vito describes how they managed to get Ron Jeremy to appear in BBBC, the bizarre marketing campaign that was imposed on the film for overseas distribution, and how they came up with an ending that surprised even Vito! (Don’t worry—it’s spoiler-free.)

The episode winds up with a return to the Land o’ Chunder as Boss B and his three Ozzie cohorts continue their discussion, with a review of the oz-sploitation flick, Turkey Shoot (a.k.a. Escape 2000), from 1982!

You can find this episode on iTunes and Stitcher Radio.

Enjoy  😀

[Running time: 2 hours 16 minutes]

[Warning: This episode contains discussions about extreme movie violence and offensive bodily functions. You will also experience Australian-style political incorrectness that would make Tim “The Toolman” Taylor blush. Oh, and there’s some saucy language, too! Yikes!]

This week on AIRLINE PILOT GUY, Captain Jeff updates you on the Asiana 214 accident and the continuing problems that plague the new 787 Dreamliners from Boeing.

But first, new guest host Chris Excess introduces himself and spends a little time talking about his lifelong obsession with ’80s American culture. A very interesting guy, and a great addition to the show!
