night-of-the-comet-newThe Princess BrideWatchmenDawn of the Dead?  Big films, you might say?  Night of the Comet can’t hear you.  Kristen chose this barely-seen apocalyptic zombie sci-fi-comedy and it tore up the competition.  The question is, is it underseen/underloved or justly forgotten?

Before we get to the links, here’s the IMDb summary for the film, for those that aren’t familiar with it:

“Two pretty high school girls (one a cheerleader!) don’t like their stepmother or her new boyfriend (“Daddy would have gotten us Uzis!”). One morning, they wake up to find that everybody in Los Angeles has been turned to dust by a Comet except them, a guy who looks like Erik Estrada, some zombies and the occupants of a secret underground government installation. “

Now, let’s see what your fellow LAMBs had to say about it. Thanks to all of the LAMBs that sent in their posts for this edition of the MOTM.

* Bargain Bin Review

* Forgotten Films

* Silver Emulsion Film Reviews

It’s also time to vote on next month’s movie. Once again, I put out the call for MOTM Champions. The gist is this: I ask for volunteers – people to select a film to be placed on the poll (up to 5 per month, as usual), then promote it on their site, Facebook, Twitter, whatever. Should their film win, they are guaranteed a spot on the LAMBcast episode where we will discuss said film. As a bonus (?), they will also get to host that segment of the show.

This month, we have five potential Champions – the sites are listed along with the films in the poll below (and in the sidebar). You have one week to vote (and promote your movies!). I’ll be putting out the call for the next MOTM in a few weeks, so stay tuned.

As we do every month, the LAMBcast is tied in with the MOTM. This time around, as mentioned, Kristen hosted the MOTM segment, and was joined by Nick, Todd, Bubbawheat, and Dylan.

Also on tap:

* Rants and Raves of the Week
* Last LAMB Standing

A couple notes:

* The show can be found, of course, via iTunes – just do a search for “LAMBcast.” Also, I always post a link to the show on the LAMBcast’s Facebook page, and there’s a player there if you’d like to listen online.

* Shows will eventually make their way to the LAMBcast Archives. If you’d ever like to catch up on back episodes, go there.

If you’re interested, you too can be a LAMBcaster – we love new blood! For more information on the LAMBcast, check out the topic at the LAMB Forums. Music provided royalty-free by Kevin MacLeod’s Incompetech website. Big thanks to Kevin for providing this service. Opening song by Cake. The LAMBcast loves feedback, too – if you’d like yours read on a future show, leave it in the comments section at the LAMB. Please visit and like our Facebook page, and finally, we’re on iTunes, and would still love a review, even if it’s a bad one.

Thanks for listening!

    I say any film with Mary Woronov in the cast such as this one deserves some merit no matter how obscure, tacky, or low budget. She has made a living starring in low budget B-movies and once made the statement “I know the difference between art and shit, but sometimes the shit is more fun.”
