Now Playing - The Movie Review Podcast

by Venganza Media, Inc. · · · · 10 subscribers

A movie review podcast that traverses the stream of Hollywood sequels, reboots, and franchises by reviewing every installment in a series, start to finish.

It’s 1989, and perpetual last girl Angela Baker (Pamela Springsteen) is heading off for New Horizons - the third Sleepaway Camp to become a Teenage Wasteland. Do any of this year’s attendees - drawn equally from underprivileged and moneyed backgrounds - have the life skills to survive a bloody weekend in the wild? And will Arnie, Stuart, and Brock give the filmmakers merit badges for their outrageous murders (which include everything from swapping recreational drugs with drain cleaner to cutting a lethal rap demo)? Donate at the Platinum Level to find out!
