This week on Caustic Content, Miros tries melt Steve’s brain with Kracker Jack’d, a Friday meets Friday the 13th blaxploitation horror comedy. Steve taps into the current political climate by forcing Miros to watch The Remedy—the self proclaimed “smartest indie movie ever made,” and a hodgepodge of banal centrism, stoner humor and moralizing.
BONUS: Miros interviews the director of Blood Dynasty, Chris AlexanderRead More
Caustic Content returns with another episode to test the willpower and mental fortitude of Steve and Miros. This week, it’s Da Pinche Code a manic action comedy up against an insufferably pretentious art film titled Antlers of Reason.Read More
Optimism Vaccine continues the time-honored October tradition of introducing Shawn to great horror auteurs. This year, for really no good reason at all, we chose Joe D’Amato. Yeah, seriously. Join us as Shawn experiences classic like Beyond the Darkness, Anthropophagous, Absurd and… umm… Porno Holocaust.
his week, Jake Tropila joins Steve and Miros as the very first Caustic Content guest. We’re also going big budget (well, by our standards) for the first time. Miros unleashes the Troma-endorsed butthole horror classic, Hellitosis: The Legend of Stankmouth. Steve counters with an art house edge lord slice of extreme horror, Tempus Tormentum.Read More

Film has a long and storied history of iconic, acclaimed musicals so why not subject yourself to the worst the genre has to offer?

Four episodes in and it's finally happened. Steve and Miros have found the worst film ever made. Is it Carrie Cain-Sparks James Bond parody, The Spy Who Boned Us or Z-grade horror/thriller, Fire Worms?Read More
On this episode of Caustic Content, Steve discovers a new sub-genre of films that rely entirely on green screen and antiquated CGI for EVERY. SINGLE. SCENE. This one also happens to be a super hero parody called The Amazing Bulk. Adam counters with an ostensibly erotic thriller called SheChotic that hates women almost as much as the director hates proper lighting and developing characters.Read More
The cinematic trash train rolls on with two zero budget oddities. Steve subjects Miros to Love on a Leash, the story of a sassier, sexier Air Bud looking to get to the bone zone with a deeply disturbed woman so he can convince a magical fountain to turn him into a human. Miros counters with Revenge of The Animals; an AWARD-WINNING comedy (?) from Adam Griswold about murder, fame, camping and animal liberation...or something. God help us.
Netflix, Amazon and Hulu might boast an impressive collection of films, but there's a lot of trash to wade through to get to the classics and hidden gems. So what happens when two friends ignore the good stuff, travel to the heart of darkness and seek out the absolute worst of the worst streaming online to pit them against one another in head-to-head competition? Pain. Suffering. Hopefully a mildly entertaining podcast.
