The Cinema Snob Season 2
S02 E01Nov 2, 2007
Horrifying Experiments of the SS Last Days Nov 2, 2007 *Date Unverified*Well isn't that a hell of a title to begin Season 2 with! While the Snob may not have any furniture, that's no excuse not to make fun of this nazisploitation flick.3 months went by between the "Satan's Children" video and this one, mainly because of all the moving stuff. Pretty much everything I say at the beginning of the video is true. I hadn't moved into my friends place because his electricity had been shut off and it was the fucking dead cold of winter. Also I had been laid off at my job. What isn't true however is that all my furniture was gone. I wanted to somehow work the moving story into the show, so I made up the fact that my furniture was gone, even though the big comfy chair and the couch were very much still in the room. I didn't figure on my friend getting evicted and all of my DVD's stolen, so I ended up just running with that joke and remained on the floor for every single episode of Season 2. It's what I call "The Floor Season."

Zombie 4: After Death Nov 6, 2007 What happens when you combine zombies, a no name 80s soundtrack, and direct-to-video action theatrics? You get "Zombie 4." The worst of the "Zombi" series.Not sure why I have a blanket on in this video. Must've been cold that day. The script for this video actually comes from a review I did on "Zombie 4" when I used to be a critic for a dvd release site. I just re-worded it a little and added some profanity to turn it into a Snob video.

Exit the Dragon, Enter the Tiger Nov 12, 2007 The Cinema Snob tackles Bruceploitation in this film starring Bruce Li who sets out to avenge the death of the real Bruce Lee who was murdered by drug runners.This is another example of a movie appearing on the show mainly because I had just watched it and it was fresh in my head. Otherwise, I might not have even thought to consider it. It's nowhere near the worst Bruceploitation movie, and it's not even one of the more campy entries in that subgenre; but it is however incredibly tasteless. So I guess that makes it decent candidate.

Blood Freak Nov 21, 2007 *Date Unverified*It's Thanksgiving time, and only one movie comes to mind to talk about this holiday week. "Blood Freak." A movie where a man turns into a turkey monster and kills druggies.My first holiday themed episode. What the hell else could I have done on Thanksgiving other than "Blood Freak"?

Evil Come, Evil Go Nov 27, 2007 The Cinema Snob takes a look at the Sexploitation Triple Feature from Something Weird Video. First up is the holier than thou crazy religious freak sex from "Evil Come Evil Go."This is the 1st Part of a trilogy of episodes I did called The Sexploitation Triple Feature. Something Weird Video (which is a fantastic company by the way) put out a DVD featuring 3 Sexploitation movies. So I decided to write up a Snob video for all 3 of those movies, and in a period of 3 days I shot and edited the reviews. Only I didn't post them up on YouTube. Well, actually I did for a tiny bit, but I took them down once I realized they would inevitably be removed for content.In that regard, these 3 reviews survived by recent separation from YouTube. They still exist over at Veoh.com, so I'm just going to embed them from over there.

Terror at Orgy Castle Dec 2, 2007 Here's the story behind this video. This movie has nudity in it about 90% of the time, so I had to edit like a mad dog to cover up all the nude shots with red bars in order to post it on YouTube. The problem was that for some really silly reason I chose to edit this video at some obnoxious hour of the early morning, so there was some naked shots that I missed. When I realized there was some stuff I forgot, I had already lost the raw footage, so the video is pretty much stuck the way it is. And it's actually pretty funny because of that. Notice in one scene that the Wallies are covered up, but the Beaver is still very much getting in to trouble out in the open.
S02 E07Dec 9, 2007
The Hand of Pleasure Dec 9, 2007 The final installment of the Sexploitation Triple Feature. I had to cut about a minute out of this video in order to get it under 10 minutes for YouTube (at the time that's what their maximum length was). I can't remember all that I cut out, but I think one of the lines cut was a "Soft Beds, Hard Battles" reference where I said the only kind of 70's sexploitation I liked were the ones starring Peter Sellers. The "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" reference in this episode is one of my favorite moments of the series.
S02 E08Jan 12, 2008
Zombie Lake Jan 12, 2008 I remember there was about a month between the "Hand of Pleasure" video and this one. There was something wrong with my computer at the time, probably a virus or something, I can't remember off the top of my head. But that's why at the beginning of the episode I mention being gone a while.
S02 E09Jan 19, 2008
Ninja Untouchables Jan 19, 2008 This is the show's introduction to Pierre Kirby. Don't know who Pierre Kirby is? Well, you're missing out, because Pierre Kirby is a legend of low budget 80's actionsploitation cinema! One of the best unknown action heroes of that decade!

Snuff Jan 26, 2008 At the time, this was the most requested movie that I review.
S02 E11Feb 1, 2008
Zombie 5: Killing Birds Feb 1, 2008 The Cinema Snob bites the bullet and suffers through "Zombie 5" to determine if it really is worse than Part 4.It's true, "Zombie 5: Killing Birds" actually was the first movie I ever netflixed. I got so many requests to do this movie, I set up a netflix account so I could specifically get this movie. The reason I have a blanket on in this episode is easy. I had one on for the "Zombie 4" review. Although I'm still not sure why I had it on in that review.Also, this is the first episode to inquire my now trademark use of the Stinger at the end of each video. For those of you who don't know, The Stinger was most popularly used at the end of "Mystery Science Theater 3000," where in a preposterous, ridiculous, or just down right funny 5 second clip of the movie would be placed at the end of the episodes. I didn't start out wanting to use The Stinger for every episode, but after I got many many requests to do so after the "Zombie 5" review, it simply just became a tradition for the reviews.There are a couple of previous episodes that have a clip of the movie at the end ("Zombie 4," "Ninja Untouchables"), mainly just for time's sake, but I credit the "Zombie 5" review as strictly being the beginning of the Stingers.The "Zombie 5" video is also notable for being another beginning for the series: The debut of The Cinema Snob opening credit sequece. For the theme song, it came down between "Theme From Greatest American Hero" and "Looks Like We Made It" by Barry Manilow (which had been used at the end of the "Satan's Children" review). I went with the former though, seeing how it is possibly the greatest TV theme of all time.
S02 E12Feb 8, 2008
Blood of Ghastly Horror Feb 8, 2008 I netflixed this movie too after I returned "Zombie 5." After this I simply quit my Netflix account and went back to collecting. This is the only episode post "Zombie 5" episode that does not have a Stinger at the end. My excuse is that I was editing late and simply forgot.
S02 E13Mar 1, 2008
Woodchipper Massacre Mar 1, 2008 The worst of the tool themed horror flicks, "Woodchipper Massacre" is heavy on the woodchipper, but light on the massacre.This is one of my favorite episodes. Jon McBride, director of "Woodchipper Massacre," is one of the nicest guys I've talked to online. "Woodchipper Massacre" is a great movie to watch with friends, as is one of Jon's other movies "Cannibal Campout." Very funny stuff. Shortly after I did this review, I got YouTube Comment Bombed by a couple of rabid die-hard "Woodchipper Massacre" fans. I had to write to them and explain in great detail how I am not now nor have I ever been playing myself in any of these videos. Anyone who knows me knows I wouldn't be caught dead wearing those glasses in the real world.
S02 E14Mar 15, 2008
Monkey with 72 Magic Mar 15, 2008 I did this episode for my fiance Jillian, who is a huge fan of almost anything Asian related. At the time, this was the craziest Asian movie I owned, so I gave it a watch and did this review.
S02 E15Mar 29, 2008
The Eerie Midnight Horror Show Mar 29, 2008 Bad Quality. Didn't survive the transfer well.
S02 E16Apr 17, 2008
The Black Six Apr 17, 2008 Bad Quality again. Much apologies.
S02 E17May 10, 2008
Mother's Day May 10, 2008 I heard that Troma was none too pleased about this video. That kinda saddens me a little, since I love Troma and still maintain that "The Toxic Avenger" is one of the best and most inspiring films of the 1980s. "Mother's Day," though...I'm sorry, I genuinely do hate this movie. This review didn't require a whole lot of acting from me.
