Ep. 137 — IDLE HANDS (with Craig Carson)


Our Class of 99 series comes to an epic conclusion this week with a look at the oft-maligned horror/comedy IDLE HANDS!

We're joined in studio by longtime friend of the podcast and first time guest, Craig Carson! We'll discuss the film's development, and well, just what went wrong to cause it to be so ill-received. Over the last twenty years, it's gained a cult following, but does it deserve it?

We discuss exactly that as Craig throws us a curveball and nominates it not for the Psychotronic Hall of Fame, but for a Movie Redemption!

It's been a long, long time since we've done a Movie Redemption but longtime listeners will know that these are films that have pretty poor reputations, but that we (or at least one of us) disagrees. We may not think these films are classics, but that they might just deserve to be reconsidered as better than their legacy would lead you to believe.

So let us know! Is IDLE HANDSworthy of redemption?
