Free bonus event
presents the movie Spellcaster with a live comedy commentary
HSHD have seen a lot of bad movies over the past 55 episodes, but none so deliciously bad as Spellcaster. This movie's got everything you could ever want, if what you want is Adam Ant as a dapper Satan, the non-union equivalent of Cyndi Lauper, and a French-girl-eating chair. We're presenting the movie rifftrax style, augmented with (potentially) hilarious jokes from Josh, Matt, and Adam.
