Yes I have been a bit slow on the MovieJuice updates lately, and I thought I would finally explain to you why.
Over the past few months I have been helming a TV project that has sucked up lots of my MovieJuice time. For a long time I have wanted to host a late-night movie show and my pitch was finally met with welcoming ears last fall when San Diego’s U-T TV agreed to produce 24 episodes.
Episodes of what, you ask?
It’s called Movies that Suck, and it’s a cinematic excursion into Horror’s public domain with your humble host, Brad the Impaler.
Brace yourself, then watch the promotional trailer:
Here’s my bio from the U-T TV site:
Brad the Impaler is the host of U-T TV’s new late-night show, Movies that Suck, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. It is San Diego’s only locally hosted movies show with what can only be described as some of the worst movies you will ever see. Brad’s home is the dungeon of the Union Tribune, and it’s there he stows under-appreciated cinematic also-rans like ‘Destroy All Planets’, ‘Frankenstein’s Castle of Freaks’, ‘Feast of Satan’, ‘Horror of the Zombies’ and so many more. Surprise guests include familiar Hollywood names like Wes Craven, Corey Feldman, and Kevin Smith. Regular segments include “Crap for Sale in your Neighborhood,” “Fun with Wikipedia,” and lots more. So tune in, turn on, and drop out to a show you will most certainly live to regret.
U-T TV is the TV channel of the esteemed journalistic icon the San Diego Union-Tribune a.k.a. UTSanDiego. Hey what local media company wouldn’t be improved by having Brad the Impaler on their staff?
Here’s how to dive in to the show: You can…
Tune in to the show on TV if you live in the San Diego area – it airs Fri at 11pm / Sat/Sun at 10pm on Cox 114 and U-Verse 17 / 1017. And yes, please do that, because sweeps are coming!
Watch the show stream live if you don’t live in San Diego. But if you tune in now it’s not on, so don’t bother.
“Like” the show on Facebook. Come on, at least you can do that, right? I have only 15 likes – give me a break.
Follow the show on Twitter. Definitely do that, will ya? I do all my Vine videos there!
Follow the Tumblr for the show.
If you’re observant you’ll notice that MovieJuice rants make their way into the show – usually from the lips of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Ahmadine- and a Movie) or – in season two taping soon – everyone’s favorite fanatical film critic, North Korea’s Kim Jong-un!
