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.

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.
