The Flop House is a bi-monthly audio podcast, devoted to the worst in recent film. Your hosts (Elliott Kalan, Dan McCoy, and Stuart Wellington) watch a questionable film just before each episode, and then engage in an unscripted, slightly inebriated discussion, focusing on the movie's shortcomings and occasional delights.

Greeting boils and ghouls and gender non-kill-forming! For the spooookiest holiday of the year, Thanksgiving, we discuss the very appropriate Happy Halloween, Scooby Doo! Why? Well, we ask our guest, the hilarious absolute sweetheart, Justin McElroy, that very question -- you may know him as one of the hosts of Max Fun's own My Brother My Brother a…
 
And so we arrive at November, so named because it has no special theme. And, folks, we'll admit... this MIB: International episode is a weird one. Why? Well, finding out is part of the fun. But our guest for this show is Annabelle Gurwitch, from Max Fun's new Tiny Victories podcast, as well as TBS's Dinner and a Movie, countless acting roles, and q…
 
Hi everyone. Was digging through the archives to see if there was anything we could release today, because it seems like maybe people could use a distraction right now. Anyway, found this old recording of the audio from one of our earliest live shows, way back in 2013, where we riffed over the movie Bratz, and decided to make it public (there are M…
 
2020 may be miserable, but it's STILL HALLOWEEN DAMN IT. So we assembled a crack team of the Flop House gang, plus comedy writers Mike Reiss and Ken Keeler (who, between them, are responsible for much of the greatness of The Simpsons, The Critic, and Futurama) to discuss the most important and timely issue possible -- the 1962 novelty hit, The Mons…
 
Our guest this week is Gillian Flynn, bestselling author of Gone Girl, Sharp Objects, and Dark Places, showrunner for Amazon's Utopia, screenwriter of Widows and adaptations of her own work, winner of the Edgar Award, and BAFTA nominee. We have no idea why she agreed to do this either. But we're happy she did, because for our second and final SHOCK…
 
We couldn't get together for a mini this week, but our busy schedule is the listeners' gain, as we release this full-sized live show from the vault! It's a flashback to happier times, last July, when people could assemble to live comedy! Here's our live Hellboy (2019) show from The Parkway theater in Minneapolis, MN! Speaking of live shows -- mark …
 
If there's one thing we've learned in all our years of discussing bad movies, it's that vanity projects are often the creme de la creme of bizarre and terrible cinema. And hoo doggies, do we have something special for you. Made in 2006, then shelved for nearly a decade before getting quietly dumped to streaming in 2014, writer/director/star Stuart …
 
After a run of guests, we're celebrating Smalltember with just family. Because at a time like this, family is important, y'know? Almost as important as a movie where Kelsey Grammer menacingly smokes a cigar while telling a professional wrestler to rob a sky casino. That's right, we talked about Money Plane. You're welcome. Wikipedia summary of Mone…
 
We finally invited the boss over for dinner, so we'd better hide all those staplers we stole! Noted dog lover and the head of Maximum Fun himself, Jesse Thorn, joins us to discuss The Call of the Wild, based on that one book you probably read in middle school. Wikipedia synopsis of The Call of the Wild Movies recommended in this episode: Eurovision…
 
The star of the show is back! We were SO happy to hang with the delightful and hilarious Hallie Haglund once more. And this time we didn't force her to discuss some fantasy bullshit she hates! Instead, we all watched what is surely one of the top three movies based on a Wham! song -- Last Christmas! Also, if you're listening to this show on the day…
 
What's this? An off-week FULL EPISODE? That's right -- as a li'l thank you for all of the support during the Max Fun Drive, we've reached into the vault and let loose this live episode, taped at Boston's CitySpace, on Alita: Battle Angel, so you can FINALLY learn the origin of Elliott's conviction that Dan loves backstory. ALSO! Two Flop House live…
 
Did you think we wouldn't pull out all the stops for Max Fun Drive 2020? More fool you! Because in this episode, we discuss legendary Hollywood flop and Bruce Willis passion project, Hudson Hawk! And to discuss this momentous film, we're joined by Roman Mars, of the blockbuster design podcast 99% Invisible, the man many have called "The Hudson Hawk…
 
The fuck is this? No really, the fuck is this? What is this fucking thing? What? This? From a major studio and established director? What? The fuck? This? Was made? THIS? We talk about Artemis Fowl with critic and filmmaker Scott Weinberg. Wikipedia synopsis of Artemis Fowl (good luck) Movies recommended in this episode: Lucky Grandma Monstrum The …
 
It's Cagemas in July! That cherished Flop House tradition that Dan totally forgot about for the past couple of years. But he remembered this time! Lay off! Anyway, the wonderful Erin Foley-Chan (supervising producer of The Big Fib on Disney+) joins us to discuss the weird-ass supernatural sex thriller Between Worlds. Meanwhile, Dan has done some se…
 
Our pals John Hodgman and David Rees have an animated show called Dicktown, about an aging boy detective and his aging bully/partner, premiering on FXX's "Cake" on July 9. Thus, in a completely generous, non-promotional gesture, they dropped by to discuss private detectives in movies, and in fiction generally.…
 
"Hollywood" Kalan really worked his connections this episode, to bring us the utterly wonderful Felicia Day (of The Guild, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, MST3K: The Return, and much more) to discuss seminal high fantasy, low budget epic "Hawk the Slayer." Meanwhile Dan drops a crazy Pink Panther fact, Elliott launches an insulting guess-by…
