Evil Steve At The Movies Season 2

Episode 14: Creature

Original Air Date: 1/6/2013

I was slowly starting to feel comfortable in my own skin, so to speak, when I made this one. This was my favorite episode that I had done for a little while, until I did Raptor later that year. Also, this is where Thing 1 and 2 really start to play a part in the episodes. The first season was me basically trying to find my own groove, and I kind of look at it like its own thing. Season 2 is where I really feel that Evil Steve as it is today really began. I had an idea of where I wanted to go with it, and built upon it from S2E1. This episode has a decent amount of issues with it, such as me still not knowing how to properly end an episode consistently. But this is an older episode that I actually don’t mind re-watching in front of people.

Episode 19: Bloodlines

Original Air Date: 5/17/2013

Soooo this episode was made at somewhat of a low point in my personal life. It’s made pretty apparent by my utter vehemence towards the movie, even though it really wasn’t any worse than some of the other movies that I had already reviewed at the time. This movie just got under my skin so much because of having to re-watch it several times in order to be able to come up with jokes, and I just developed a seething hatred of it. It’s a horrible movie no doubt, but I go off a little too much on it, I think.

 

Evil Steve At The Movie One Year Anniversary

Original Air Date: 5/22/2013

I’m an idiot. I thought that I had uploaded my first episode on the 22nd of May when it was actually the 11th. At least I caught it in time to make a small joke about it at the ending credit text.

 

Episode 20: Alligator

Original Air Date: 6/7/2013

 

Episode 21: Bad Moon

Original Air Date: 7/9/2013

The first episode with the current intro. My friend Liz Emirzian did the artwork for this, which was an oil painting based off of a concept that I gave her. Her website and other contact info is listed in my contributing artists page if you wish to view more of her work or commission a piece from her.

 

Episode 22: The Deadly Spawn

Original Air Date: 8/15/2013

 

Episode 23: Raptor

Original Air Date: 9/17/2013

I came up with the idea of me fighting the Carnosaur T Rex in my car via bad editing pretty early into Evil Steve At The Movies. That was the main inspiration for making a full episode out of it. In fact, a decent amount of Evil Steve episodes were made after having just one idea for a really good joke to make about a movie. Those jokes ended up with hit or miss episodes. I would come up with what I thought was a great episode for a show based on one really good joke, and sometimes it would be a (mostly) solid episode. Other times it would be like Antichrist, which was launched from the idea of the Cannibal Corpse joke and the clips of laughter at the talking fox, and those ended up being mostly the only good jokes in the entire episode. Oops.

 

Episode 24: Murder Set Pieces

Original Air Date: 10/6/2013

There’s a couple of firsts with this episode. First (aha, see what I did there?) there is that this was the first episode of Evil Steve to be flat out taken down by You Tube. Some of my other episodes are blocked to this day on You Tube, but this was the first that was just taken down, resulting in a copyright strike. For those who don’t know, when you get a strike on your account, you can’t upload anything more than 15 minutes long. So, for about a year I only uploaded my full episodes to Daily Motion and Blip, until one day that I realized the strike was lifted (I didn’t know that they lasted for 6 months at the time). But otherwise, it was here that I decided to primarily focus on extreme horror, and only occasionally do werewolf and monster movies, instead of vice versa. It was something that no one had really focused on before, and I found that some of my best material came out of episodes like these. I could shave a few minutes off of this episode, but I’m still really happy overall with how it came out. Another thing about this episode is that this is when Evil Steve’s dark protector (there has never been an official name for him) first starts to surface. It’s only an off screen voice in one scene, but it slowly starts to set up what will be the ongoing story of the host segments of Evil Steve At The Movies.

 

Episode 25: Cannibal

Original Air Date: 10/26/2013

Besides this being my favorite episode of the season, this also is the first episode that shows Thing 2 dying before he comes back in the next episode, which would become an ongoing theme in seasons to come. He can never fully die, which will make sense in the long run. I promise. 

 

Episode 26: American Mary

Original Air Date: 11/15/2013

Here’s an episode I wish I could do over. Mainly to get rid of the bitterness that I seem to have towards this movie in my review. I watched this film again recently, and it was better than I remembered it. I really do like this movie a lot, but I was just so down and out when I made this episode that mostly my negativity came through in this review, which I am regretful of, especially considering what a fan I am of the Twisted Twins’ work today. That is the only thing that I don’t like about the episode though, as I do consider this to be one of the strongest of the season otherwise.

 

Episode 27: Ginger Snaps

Original Air Date: 12/8/2013

It was a little bit of a big deal making this episode for me. I can’t express with words how much love I have for this movie, but I had to be able to make jokes about it, while at the same time showing how much I adored the fuck out of this film. Aside from being the 3rd longest review I’ve ever done at 29+ minutes, I think it came out pretty good. It showed what was great about the film, while still leaving room for the jokes I had to work. I think I overindulged in my love of the movie and that’s why the run time went so long, but I think it was worth it overall. When I saw this movie in 03, it was the first time in I don’t know how many years that I felt legitimately heartbroken by the film’s end. And the fact that a horror film, a WEREWOLF film at that, had made me feel that way really meant something to me, and I felt that it was something that I needed to share with the world, even if it did end up being a little self indulgent. It was worth it.
