About FilmSack!


Each week, the FilmSack crew picks a strange movie from the bowels of Netflix streaming and splatters it all over your inner ear. Sometimes it’s a long forgotten horror movie from the 70′. Sometimes it’s a under the radar gem of brilliance from last year. One way or the other, this is not your typical movie show.

  1. Pingback: Film Sack Podcast Review… « A Paladin Without A Crusade…

  2. A couple suggestions for films that are far overdo for sacking (if you have already done any of these I must have missed them):

    A) Roadhouse. (Patrick Swayze, Boobies, and “Pain Don’t Hurt”)

    B) Remo Williams the Adventure Begins (The guy from Tremors who wasn’t Kevin Bacon, Captain Janeway, And Wilford “Diabeetus” Brimley in a hokey kung fu action flick from the 80’s)

    C) My Best Friend Is A Vampire. (Like Teen Wolf, but for vampires. Same era, same basic story, only lacking in big names and big budget… but Odo from DS9 is an easy Trek connection, and like Teen Wolf.. no lack of boobies)

  3. Unquestionably believe that that you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to consider of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as people think about issues that they just do not recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect , folks can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

  4. So, I know I cannot be the first person to make this movie suggestion, but you simply have to sack “Earth Girls Are Easy!” I cannot believe it has not happened yet! You mentioned that you had thought about sacking it but then changed the subject and I almost ate my own head. I think it is a perfect candidate: I mean, it is streaming on Netflix, it is shameless 80s cheese with horrible sound clip potential, and Geena Davis is the “star” so Scott can use his hilarious Skeletor voice! Oh, and Julie Brown (not of the down town variety) wrote it.

  5. I love this show. You definitely need to sack Rockstar (2001), which my fiancee is making me watch now. This movie needs sacking more than any you have covered so far.

  6. Great movie to sack: “In the Army Now” with Pauly Shore!
    Just listened to the episode about Commando with the girl who shoots the rocket launcher backwards – here is another.

  7. you guys should do “My Name Is Nobody” it is a spaghetti western slapstickie movie which stars Henry Fonda. Fonda does his dialogue in english while everyone else is speaking Italian which is poorly dubbed.

  8. Hey Guys,
    Just listened to your Clue Episode and you guys were talking about sacking an animated movie. My suggestion is Transformers : The Movie from the 80’s.
    Been getting my nostalgia on playing the War and Fall of Cybertron lately and hearing you guys converse about this would make my transformers experience complete.
    Love all the shows though!
    Sorry you have to watch Face Off again Brian.

    • I have recently strated a website, the information you provide on this website has helped me tremendously. Thanks for all of your time & work. The murals in restaurants are on par with the food in museums. by Peter De Vries.

  9. Hello Scott, Brian, Brian, and Randy.
    You guys have been entertaining me on a daily basis for sometime now. I have great Jim Carey movie to Sack (that is if it hasnt been suggested already). It would tickle my fancy it you guys could do Copper Mountain. That movie needs a good sacking. Thanks πŸ™‚



  10. As a collector of older movie memorabilia, I have something that I want to send to Scott Johnson as a thank you for this amazingly entertaining podcast. Can you email me an address to send it to?

    • Finally the primary palticurar person to comment. You’re making some nice factors here. I was studying John Reese’s blog the day prior to this about building friendships and I see that you simply make a degree on this post approximately constructing friendships and relationships. They’re undoubtedly important.

  11. You should look into watching one of the craziest Nic Cage movies ever! Vampire’s Kiss. Eating real cockroaches, running around yelling I’m a vampire! These are just some of the great highlights in this black comedy.

  12. SAmurai Cop. Me and my friends here in Dublin Ireland watch it every Xmas with a few drinks and its just the funniest/worst film ive ever seen. This film needs to be sacked (if anything just to the the ‘Lions Head’ on the wall-youl know it when you see it!!).love the show,

    Nollaig Shona Duit (Merry Christmas!)


  13. Just watched an HBO special about models Then and Now. In this documentary they had a model, Dayle Haddon, who’s face I knew but couldn’t quite place…. at the end of the day it came to me. CYBORG. It is a classic Van Damme film, right up your alley. I looked for it on streaming and unfortunately it is not there. But there is a Cyborg 2 – which stars Angelina Jolie of all people!

  14. I really love the concept of Film Sack. Obviously I am a new listener and was thrilled about deconstructing movies , all your wonderful bits of trivia. There was a show called Pop up Video on cable. Film sack is the audio version of bits of trivia injected into the show! It used to be crazy trying to figure out who that actor was? What was he in? Crazy….now just look it up….there you got it. Fun stuff. Thanks so much. Have you considered Buckeroo Banzi with Jeff Goldbulm, Ellen Barkin and lots of other obscure stars. Thanks, Wanda

  15. I think the guys should do the ‘other Prophecy’. The 1979 pollution fable/giant mutant bear and baby classic. It stars Robert Foxworth and Talia Shire searching for pollution at the paper mill only to uncover something far more terrifying AAARRRG!

    Question? If you have copies of flicks etc that you want to send to the Film Sack guys, what is the physical address to send them to?

  16. Great items from you, man. I’ve take into accout your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely fantastic. I really like what you have acquired right here, really like what you’re stating and the way in which during which you assert it. You are making it enjoyable and you still take care of to keep it smart. I can’t wait to learn much more from you. That is really a terrific web site.

  17. Hello,

    I have a similar question to that of a few others. I have some great ideas for Film Sack movies that aren’t streaming. What is the physical address to send these items to?



  18. As long as you’re ripping audio clips from movies, you think you might be able to post them? Maybe there’s a legal conflict there, but if not it would just be one more reason for folks to visit your site. Any good movie lines I hear in movies, I always download / rip the WAV and drop them into my mp3 shuffles.

  19. Hey big fan. Just wanted to say James Bond movies are streaming on netflix. Octopussy is available until 5/1/2013.

  20. You guys need to sack The Last Starfighter. I just watched it again recently and thought I’d listen to that episode again. But I looked for it and it doesn’t exist! I was only imagining it! This is my favorite bad movie, and its just waiting for a good old fashioned sacking! I also checked and it IS streaming on Netflix.

  22. I just watched “Stolen” starring Nick Cage on Netflix and I think you guys need to sack this one. It’s a Taken rip off (Ha! Get it? “STOLEN”). I found it to be the tropiest thing since trope came to trope town. Sack this piece of poo immediately.

      There are several designs and models available in the market these days depending

  23. Thanks for another informative web site. Where else may just I am getting that type of info written in such a perfect manner? I’ve a challenge that I’m simply now operating on, and I have been on the look out for such information.

  24. Hey guys love the show and listen to it all the time during work. Appreciate how its SFW and you guys do so many films I remember watching.

    I was thinking a good film to sack that is streaming on Netflix is Battle Royale. Its a Japanese flix that seem to be the inspiration for Hunger Games, despite the fact the author of HG denies it. Its about a dystrophy future where the government randomly selects a classroom of teenagers and forces in kill or be kill game to be televised.

    It’s sorta a cult classic and a nice film to view the differences between cultures.

  25. long time listener, first time poster. You mentioned a live show for Halloween. YES, PLEASE! I would absolutely love to have you guys do a “live sack” on something like “Phantasm” or “Captain Kronos vampire hunter” should either of them be streaming for Halloween.

  26. Suggestion for film sack movie!

    ” they still call me trinity”

    Great spaghetti western right in Scott’s wheelhouse. And it’s on utube!

  27. Hi guys, really love the show, I was growing up in the early eighties when the video boom was happening here in the UK and its been great to find something on the internet dadicated to some of the movies that I saw and loved( or hated, or both), though not forgetting the more recent stuff you do too.
    Only one recommendation, thought of it as soon as I heard the show:
    Megaforce. Hal (Smokey and the Bandit) Needhams ridiculous 80s action(!) movie that just a brief viewing of some of the 2 minute scenes on youtube should be enough to convince anyone that this is perfect Film Sack fodder. Nevermind the flying bike sequence, its the Parachute sequence that still makes me cringe after all these years! So a Motorbike that fires missiles that are about as acurrate as a SCUD are ‘the most advanced weaponry available’!! Come on!
    Sorry, do not know its availability on streaming etc, but the whole movie is up on youtube, if thats an option. Thanks again for the show!

  28. Just listened to the Moonraker episode. You described the scene where Jaws meets the girl with the pig tails. The same scene is in one of my favorite movies “Better Off Dead”. In this John Cusack movie they have an epic final fight in the snow. After the villain loses, a girl with permanent pig-tails, glasses, and braces helps him up. This spoof of the Bond vs Jaws fight might have the girl you were thinking of. What do you think. The website has a picture on the very bottom. Take a look.


    Love the show!

  29. I don’t know if you guys have got this suggestion before but you need to savk the movie Troll Hunter. This is a perfect movie to sack it is hilarious and horrible and the special effects are pretty good the trolls look amazing. The only problem is that it is subbed.

  30. I listen to your show every week. I have to catch myself from laughing out loud at your commentary sometimes. My favorite episode has to be tremors the live show you all did, and the omen. I listen to all of them all the time, you guys are the greatest, please keep up the great job and keep on sackin vickie from Richmond ky.

  31. Hey guys… Long time listener of the show. I think the format you guys have picked to run with really works well and is recorded much more professionally than most (That includes our own at Filmwerk).

    I have to say a huge thank you as you partly inspired us when we ran out own Film podcast in the UK. We run a varied which one week could be on news, the next on a retrospective of a directors work (Like John Carpenter). But we also launched a series in the mix called Filmclub which looked at singular films that perhaps had been out of the limelight for a while (or were never in it in the first place). This idea was inspired by your own podcast – and we launched it many moons ago with a look at the film HARDWARE. To my delight the following week you guys covered the film yourselves – and although our opinions were very different – it was a joy to see some cross over right away.

    Since them I always take great delight when we cover similar material, but in general it’s always a delight to listen to. On our 100th podcast we even got into a discussion about what podcasts we all listen to and I made no bones about recommending yours to the few people that have picked up on ours (But I would assume anyone that has found ours had already found yours anyway!).

    Not to kiss your ass for too long – I can hand you a bit of criticism too – like the in recent shows the fact that you guys can often get your facts very wrong! Thankfully, usually, this is corrected by Brian who is often looking facts up as you talk about them. Myself and other co-hosts have often discussed your show and the fact that we have all screamed at the speaker when you get your facts way off the mark. Aside from that, obviously we are still keen listeners.

    After listening to the Escape from LA show – and knowing that you covered various Carpenter flicks before I would like to try to take you to task with doing IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS on a future show. When we covered Carpenter this was a highlight for our show as I believe this film to be an underseen masterpiece. I think revisiting this and viewing it in context might make you guys realise there is actually a Carpenter film in the 90’s that was great – despite being restricted by budget, so perhaps one worth adding to the pile!

    Beyond that basic suggestions might also include (Depending on Netflix US I guess) – how about a comedy? like Christian Slater in KUFFS, for an under-seen thriller perhaps MR BROOKS, Bruce Willis flop HUDSON HAWK, or for something recent how about KILLER JOE… I don’t think you guys are in any sign of running out of films to cover and we look forward to hearing what you have coming up.
    All the best

  32. Hello Film Sack
    Love your podcast. It recently helped me through a marathon in Denmark. So thanks for that.
    I wanted to suggest two movies from the 80’ies, that are very much overlooked.
    Xanadu and Date with an angel. The best chick flicks of all time (after Grease and girls just wanna have fun)
    I saw them as a child and loved them, and perhaps that is why I still love them.
    I know that they are not the greatest movies of all time but still amusing. And I would defiantly love to hear you guys talk about them or do a commentary.
    Keep up the great work
    Love Sofie

  33. i just found this podcast and love it. i been going thru your back log and just listen to the re animator episode. you talked in detail about THE SCENE. here’s a worse one. there is a movie called Brain Damage that has a fellatio murder scene. it’s not actually a male member but a tumor or growth that the boy has that has come alive. you can find the video online. try “5 gruesomely funny horror movie sex scenes”.

  34. Hey guys, I’m driving from Sydney to Perth in Australia. It’s about 4000km and I loaded up on podcasts to pass the time. Awesome show. I loved the Terminator 2 one… I find it a bit distracting that the whiney knowledgeable one (Randy?), sounds exactly like Phillip Seymour Hoffman though. πŸ™‚ Keep up the good work.

  37. Somebody said during your show about The Last Stand, “What corn is doing on an Arizona Mexico border, I have know idea. I live in Phoenix and I’ll have you know that there is lots of corn in Arizona. We have several varieties from sweet corn, to popcorn, to corn used for animal feed. Thought you wouldn’t care but I was bored so here ya go.

    Yo the show flow,

  38. hey guys, love the show! i was wondering if in the future you could sack the following films:
    “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace”
    The Michael Bay “Transformers” movies, or if you have to choose just one of them, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”

    keep up the good work!

  39. Hey just wanted to let you know I really enjoy your show Film Sack. I listen to it every day I work and there are so many episodes it’s awesome! I always think of tons of movies for you guys to do but for now I’ll just mention two that you guys can watch in full on youtube. It’s called Black Scorpion (1995). It looks right up your alley and it was surprisingly good for how cheesy it was (I actually thought it was gonna be much more dumb). Another movie I was thinking looked amazing by the box art is Street Knight (the full movie is also on youtube). I’ve never watched this yet but my co host just got it the other day and it looks like the funniest action movie and from what I’m hearing online, it’s supposed to also be surprisingly good. Anyways, your show and it’s format helps me want to improve on my podcast which is called The Retro Relapse Podcast. We will also be doing a lot of different movies on our show, so it’d be great for you to listen sometime and I’d like to keep in touch as well, thanks!





  40. You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I’d never
    understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very huge for
    me. I’m taking a look ahead in your subsequent post, I will try
    to get the dangle of it!

  41. Hey guys
    Love the podcast, found it about two weeks ago and have burned through about 90% of them in about two weeks. Just a sugestion do any of the death wish movies, specifically death wish three or four, specifically three. It’s prolly the worst movie I’ve ever seen, the editing is so bad it almost makes the movie make no sense. Love bad movies, wanna hear yous talk about it. They are all on netflix, check them out! Love the show!
