Everybody poops, but Angus Sampson isn't allowed to in The Mule, a new crime thriller about a drug mule who can't go to the bathroom without incriminating himself to the police. 

How long can he go without moving those bowels? How suspenseful can not pooping be? You'll find out when you see The Mule, and you'll learn a lot more about it when Angus Sampson and his co-star and co-writer Leigh Whannell guest star on this week's bonus episode of The B-Movies Podcast.

William Bibbiani talks to the Leigh Whannell and Angus Sampson about writing a script with a very unusual concept, making a crime thriller in Australia, how to build suspense and more. Plus, news about their upcoming film Insidious: Chapter 3 and stories about the Saw franchise.

Galaxy Quest Commentary Track

• November 23rd, 2014

We love Galaxy Quest. In fact, we love it so much that The B-Movies Podcast just hosted a midnight screening of the 1999 sci-fi comedy classic at the Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles. The fans came out, CraveOnline gave away some ridiculously expensive prizes, and everyone had a universally good time. 

But not all of our listeners could make it to the Galaxy Quest 15th anniversary screening, so this week The B-Movies Podcast presents the latest in our line of free downloadable commentary tracks. Surprise! It's for Galaxy Quest.

Hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are here to share the love for the cult classic film about a group of washed-up TV actors who travel to the furthest reaches of space to play their roles for real. Featuring performances by Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Enrico Colantoni, Missi Pyle and Justin Long (in his feature film debut), Galaxy Quest is the best film about Star Trek... and it's not even technically about Star Trek.

So enjoy the free commentary track, twitter us at @WilliamBibbiani and @WitneySeibold, follow the show at @BMoviesPodcast and subscribe for free on iTunes. Leave us a review! That's how we stay on the air.

Ep. 197 - Feel the Stag

• November 21st, 2014

Mockingjay? We hardly know him! HAHAHAHAHA! But seriously, this week on The B-Movies Podcast, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are reviewing The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1, and they are evenly divided. One of the hosts thinks the fourth film in the popular franchise sucks, the other thinks it's the best installment yet. Take THAT, Jay!

Also on this week's episode, Bibbs and Witney review the new releases Extraterrestrial and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, and tackle all the latest movie news and whatnot. Tom Cruise co-starring in a Highlander reboot? That might not be terrible. Four movies adapted from Stephen King's The Stand? What's the difference between that approach and the old TV mini-series? Melissa McCarthy is going to play Tinkerbell? Is that the worst idea ever or should we hold on to a thin sliver of hope?

Plus, razor frisbees on The B-Movies Podcast #197: Feel the Stag! Twitter us at @WilliamBibbiani and @WitneySeibold, follow the show at @BMoviesPodcast and subscribe for free on iTunes. Leave us a review! That's how we stay on the air.

Special Guest: Dan Gilroy, Writer/Director of Nightcrawler

• November 12th, 2014

It's one of the most acclaimed motion pictures of the year. Now, it's on The B-Movies Podcast.

This week in a very special bonus episode, we welcome Dan Gilroy, the writer and director of Nightcrawler, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Louis Bloom, a man drawn into the ethically shaky world of crime scene videography. He sells videos of car crashes and murder victims to a Los Angeles news program run by Nina Romina, played by Rene Russo, and discovers that there's more money to be earned if you don't mind getting your hands dirty.

Your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold sat down with Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy to talk about the origins of the film, the realities of nightcrawling and the real crime scenes they encountered while doing research for the film. He also reveals Jake Gyllenhaal's process for creating Louis Bloom, the effort that went into portraying Los Angeles accurately on screen, and how this first-time director developed the skills necessary to make Nightcrawler one of the best films of the year.

But wait, there's more! Bibbs and Witney also grill Dan Gilroy about the original, much darker version of Real Steel, and get the inside scoop on how Tim Burton's Superman Lives - the aborted attempt to revive the Superman movie franchise in the 1990s, and the subject of the upcoming documentary The Death of Superman Lives - would have played out on screen, and what happened on the day the production ended.

All this and the story of the time Dan Gilroy, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins went to see The Silence of the Lambs while making Freejack await you on The B-Movies Podcast Presents: Dan Gilroy!

Ep. 195 - Old West Wookiees

• November 7th, 2014

Interstellar isn't stellar after all? Say it ain't so! This week on The B-Movies Podcast, hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explain in spoiler-free detail - and then in extended spoiler-filled detail - why Christopher Nolan's Interstellar just doesn't work.

Also on this week's show: Blumhouse embarks on the new (read: old) future of entertainment, Michael Bay goes to Benghazi, Terminator: Genisys gets a dumb plot to go with its dumb title, Matt Damon gets downsized, Mark Wahlberg is The Six Billion Dollar Man and Star Wars: Episode VII becomes Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

And if that Interstellar review isn't enough for you, Bibbs & Witney also dissect the new releases Big Hero 6The Theory of Everything and Why Don't You Play in Hell? One of them is going to blow your twisted minds.

What has everyone always gotten wrong about the Terminator movies?

These are the best of the best horror movies of the 2000s, and by god, YOU WILL LISTEN.

Also on this week's episode, Bibbs and Witney review the new theatrical releases HornsNightcrawler and Before I Go to Sleep, and do their best to completely ignore the elephant in the room announcement of Marvel's upcoming Phase Three movies.

What horror movies emerged from the 2000s unscathed? Find out this week on The B-Movies Podcast #194: The Best Horror Films of the 2000s!

Magic Commentary Track: Special Guest Don Mancini

• October 27th, 2014

Child's Play creator Don Mancini joins The B-Movies Podcast for a very special Halloween episode, recording a commentary track for the killer doll movie that helped inspire Chucky. Don Mancini and William Bibbiani detail the merits and mysteries of Richard Attenborough's 1978 thriller, about a ventriloquist (Anthony Hopkins) whose dummy has a mind of its own... or does it? 

Don Mancini, who wrote all the Child's Play movies and is also co-writing the third season of TV's "Hannibal," compares Hopkins' early "psycho" performance in Magic with his later role of Hannibal Lecter, describes the influence of Magic on Child's Play, and describes his pitch for a different kind of Child's Play sequel, as well as his pitch for Freddy vs. Chucky.

Ep. 193 - Best Horror Films of the 1990s

• October 24th, 2014

Did the 1990s suck for horror movies? Eh... kinda. But The B-Movies Podcast is highlighting the best horror movies of the 1990s anyway in the latest, all-new episode!

Join hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they run down their picks for the ten best horror movies of the 1990s, and argue about what qualifies as a horror movie in the first place (the 1990s were a weird time for the genre). Until Scream came along and brought about the nouveau slasher boom, horror movies were floundering to find an identity in the decade that didn't seem to be afraid of anything. But there are a few classics and bonkers oddities that deserve a special mention during the Halloween season.

Also on this week's B-Movies Podcast, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review the brand new movie releases OuijaJohn WickForce Majeure and VHS: Viral. Two of them are great. One of them sucks. One them's just alright. Find out which ones are which!

And attention, Los Angeles residents! The B-Movies Podcast will be hosting a midnight screening of the 1999 sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest at the Nuart Theatre on November 21, 2014. Hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold will be in attendance to introduce the film and give out some really cool prizes. Tickets are already on sale (and selling fast), so be sure to pre-order yours ASAP!

Which movies defined the 1990s? Find out this week on The B-Movies Podcast #193: The Best Horror Films of the 1990s!
