Death has come to our little podcast. We can either ignore it, confront it, or choose our own version to stare down as we shout SIX TIMES! at it.

Resurrect…

Are you ready to travel unto the woods, back to a bitter American winter in 1843, and have a meal with fundamentalist Christians? Yeah, we wouldn’t be excited either, but what we are excited about is getting an early look at THE LAST THING MARY SAW, a current festival buzzer and premiering on Shudder in 2022.

Childhood friends Mike and Cody, along with the girl next door Jamie, had the perfect summer job: Hosting the local radio station's movie analysis show. That was, until they met a trilogy whose secrets would not be so easily uncovered: R.L. Stine's Fear Street! Inspired by the proto-Goosebumps all the cool kids were reading, director Leigh Janiak's…
 
This episode has many, many pockets. Each pocket filled with more and more thoughts on Marvel's BLACK WIDOW! At long last, since being the best thing in Iron Man 2, battling an insane comic book publisher President that didn't want a movie starring a girl, and constantly being delayed by a global pandemic, Scarlett Johansson and Natasha Romanoff fi…
 
This is your one way ticket to midnight! Sparks are flying in the dead of night and the beast is ready to devour because it's time to make some Heavy Metal noise... in this feature commentary track for 1981 cult epic HEAVY METAL.

Never give up hope! Unless that hope is this movie having aged into itself. Continuing on with MORTAL MONTH on the podcast, we're delving into the Tragedy known as MORTAL KOMBAT ANNIHILATION.

Welcome to The BOP Salon! While you wait to be seen, help yourself to the second half at our look at THE STYLIST, where we sit down with director Jill Gevargizian of Sixx Tape Productions, as she chats about turning her day job into a slasher movie, the underutilized sub-genre of Cosmetic Horror, the balancing act of depicting a sympathetic killer,…
 
The famous dust-ups of history: Ford vs. Ferrari! Ali vs. Fraiser! Niles vs. Fraiser! All meaningless compared to the rivalry that cracked open the very Earth in 1962, concerning one King Joseph Kong III and the kaiju who'll fry you, Godzilla!

Look, it's been awhile since we've all gotten haircuts without threat of a deadly disease.

Continuing our look at THE NIGHT SITTER, we chat with the creators themselves, writer-directors John Rocco and Abiel Bruhn, Producer Cristian Quintero and Editor Tristan Borys! Covering the …
 
You've heard the BOP Crew talk about their love of genre cinema before, but not their love of watching other people express that passion with more eloquence and sex appeal! This episode, we're talking about IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS II, the second leg of CreatorVC's critically-acclaimed journey through the horror cinema of the 1980s, with new interview…
 
As we bury the holiday season in the dirt where it belongs, why not end things with a bang by taking a look at a new seasonal horror gem?

Grab your magic stone and wish for better hosts, because Mike and Jamie are talking about Wonder Woman 1984, the Christmas Day release that marked a new era of digital distribution for Warner Bros. and their new HBO Max streaming service, much to the chagrin of studios and some audiences.

So it's come to this. Jamie and Cody are reaching the end of their trek through the life of Burt Gummer, and have seen the mustache man's most terrifying foe yet: IP cash-ins. On its penultimate episode, You Can't Kill The Gummer looks at the two movies that brought back the graboids for a new generation, for better or worse, 2015's Tremors 5: Bloo…
 
In the fall of 2020, Cody Alft, Mike Napier, and Jamie Marshall set out to record a Thanksgiving episode of their podcast, on the UPN original movie Alien Abduction: Incident At Lake County. What they purportedly captured on their microphones was more than just a discussion of obscure cinema. The following BOP n' A Movie commentary track, if real, …
 
Sit around this campfire, podcast listener, and we shall tell you a tale. A tale of greed, and deception, and unstoppable will. A tale of a young country growing out of stolen soil, and the blood that watered it. And sandworms. It's Tremors, we're talking about Tremors again, it's another Tremors episode. Tremors 4: The Legend Begins, to be exact! …
 
Much like Frosty The Snowman and the star power of Bradley Cooper, graboids never stay gone for too long, and You Can't Kill The Gummer is back with a look at Tremors 3: Back To Perfection. After five long years, we return to Burt and his home of Perfection, Nevada, a festering hellhole of false cowboys, shady real estate schemes, and more sandworm…
 
You walk out onto an unfamiliar street, your legs doing the thinking for you. The chill steals the last remnants of warmth from your breath, turning it to a cool mist before your eyes. It's dark, as dark as it gets, but even so there are shadows, long and threatening, cast by nothing at all. As it strikes you how improbable that is, you hear the ch…
 
Fetch your combustible RC cars and Graboids™ arcade cabinet, because this retrospective on the Tremors sequels has finally reached its first Tremors sequel!

If you're anything like the BOP Crew, you've been idling away Virus Year with as many homebrew projects as you can. But while some of us are building LEGO castles or recutting Excalibur to be in sync, indie artists have been proving how much can be done with hardly anything at all. Join Cody and Jamie as they hype up Arrow's "Lake Michigan Monster"…
 
Within the unseen Umbral Plains of Hollywood, film studios rip souls from promising films, producing husks of celluloid innards designed by The Nameless Marketers to please no one. Cinemas and discount bins infested with once earnest oaths for proper adaptation. Nowhere is this demonic pact more brutal than the videogame movie. The simplest of conc…
 
He's the best at what he does, unfortunately, what he does in no way involves the power to tell Tom Rothman "no." The BOP Crew reaches the zenith of X-Men Generation One in our X-Retrospective series, along with the zenith of late 2000s 20th Century Fox Tom-foolery (see what we did there?). This is our audio commentary for X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE,…
 
Audiences and third films. They have long struggled to co-exist, with studios stretching directors to the point of burnout, and others choosing new blood to handle the ballooning budgets and ravenous expectations. Neither strategy has prevailed, and X-Men: The Last Stand exists as a monument to this riddle so few can solve. Join BOP n' A Movie as w…
 
Escalation. Since the discovery of the formula, superhero movies have known it to be the secret to their survival. The debate rages: Do audiences want more action and a grander scale the second time around, or a more personal experience with these characters? Either way, it is a historical fact: X2: X-Men United had it both ways. The academy's soph…
 
From the cthonic dank of the interwebs comes a podcast of most immemorial effulgence! An innumerably indescribable discussion on a frenzied blaze of cosmic daemonicum! Okay, we'll stop now. But in our defense, we're just so darn excited to talk up the madness of one Howard Phillip Lovecraft! Recently, in some glorious begotten miracle from the Grea…
 
Comic book movies: The key to multi-media empires. It has enabled us to view men in rubber suits punching penguin-men, spandex-clad alien visitors turning back time, and Shaq attempting to act. But every few decades, comic book movies leap forward. With the impending release of NEW MUTANTS, the final in-continuity film in the franchise that changed…
 
Just when you thought it was time to put away childish things like dolls and do something grown-up like put on fatigues and pretend war for a bunch of old white dudes, movie studio executives come beckoning with insane demands like putting out another sequel less than a year since your last entry!

Join Cody and Jamie as they discuss the highs, lows, and Brights of the former pop-up ad nuisance a…
 
Mars ain't no place to set a movie. In fact, it's cold as hell. This is a lesson Andrew Stanton would learn in 2012 when the release of his dream project, a mega-budget adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' massively influential John Carter novels, was met with spectacular apathy from critics and audiences alike. Released a month before The Avengers,…
 
The BOP Crew does what they wanna do and says what they wanna say... and the podcast might be worst off for it. In this extra special creepy and kooky episode, we turn the clock back to the radical '90s to talk one of our most affectionate childhood movies, Barry Sonnenfeld's THE ADDAMS FAMILY! But, since we three are only mysterious, creepy and ko…
 
We've talked about a lot of good Stephen King movies on Box Office Pulp, but tonight we want to tell you about the ones that weren't so good. A lot of other podcasts have made fun of these, and we finally decided that if you want something done right... you ought to do it yourself. So join the BOP Crew as they reminisce about a childhood wasted wai…
 
During the spookiest time of the year, there are a few guidelines all horror fans should follow. Always check if there's a Blumhouse release out, never go to a stranger's home to see their VHS collection, and NEVER watch alone. I see you're ready to pop in the 2009 anthology Trick r' Treat tonight, but not so fast, Timmy! You want to let The BOP Cr…
 
Get out your knife and a really big spoon, because it's the only day of the year the BOP Crew looks forward to more than Halloween: The Great Gourdening, Dia de los Calabaza itself, Big-Ass Pumpkin Day! And to properly prepare for the festivities, we suggest you put on a slasher so obscure it makes you think "Wow, Amy Weber and Minka Kelly are real…
 
The author from Maine strode across the silver screen, and the BOP Crew followed. Not, like, in a stalker way or anything, we just-- it's a podcast, okay? And in honor of this year's love affair with the man, we're spotlighting the legend, inspiration, and goddamn industry that is Stephen King! People (mainly us) have gushed about The Shining and I…
 
Beep Beep, folks! The BOP Crew is floating their way on back to Derry to fulfill a blood oath. A blood oath to... to talk about movies. We take talking about movies very seriously, all right!? But regardless, we find ourselves collectively at the conclusion of the horror juggernaut that is Stephen King's clown-tastic, IT CHAPTER 2! Andy Muschietti …
 
Satan's in deep shit! The BOP Crew is sitting down with some instant coffee and whipping chocolates at the refrigerator. Cody's housewarming party? No, it's because we're talking about the 1992 sci-fi/horror/noir/comedy from the writer of Hollow Man and The Fast And The Furious, SPLIT SECOND! Haven't heard of it, you say? Neither had we until the p…
 
Oh, you thought it was the end, friends? Clearly you don't know how slasher flicks work! We're continuing our BOP 'n A Movie series on the franchise that keeps going and going and going and going. And unlike that piece of crap Energizer Bunny, Chucky don't need no batteries to do it! This time, we tackle the baby steps the series took as it moved o…
