What is Good Bad Flicks?
The show was originally started as a platform for me to talk about lesser known films and vent some frustrations about the current state of cinema. Initially it was just for my friends but it expanded beyond that to the point of my building the site.
Who are you?
Cecil Trachenburg. Just a guy who loves movies and wants to talk about them.
Why do you mainly focus on horror films?
Because horror films are awesome.
What are some of your all time favorite movies?
I’ll be doing a show dedicated to this later in the year.
What kind of music do you like?
Bad Religion, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Horse the Band, but I also enjoy alternatives like Soundgarden and many variations of heavy music. Everything from Muse to Queen. Big fan of 80s music too. I have a soft spot for girls with a piano like Fiona Apple, Sarah Mclaughlin and Tori Amos.
Can’t stand hip hop or 99.9% of this autotuned crap. I hate songs where they take a popular song from years ago and rap over it. That makes my blood boil.
Why do you do this?
I love movies. I love talking. This is a total peanut butter and chocolate sort of affair.
When is your next video?
New episodes premiere Sunday nights.
Can I request a movie?
Absolutely. I can’t guarantee I’ll do a show on it but it never hurts to bring something to my attention.
Are you ever going to review any newer movies?
Occasionally. I try to stick to older movies but sometimes I feel the need to give something more recent the attention.
Why do you praise movies that suck?
Because I’m right and you’re wrong.
What are the movies in your intro?
Here they are in order: (you should watch them all!) I Come in Peace, The Stuff, Class of 1999, My Boyfriend’s Back, Riki-Oh, Roller Boogie, Defcon-4, Thriller: A Cruel Picture, Class of 1999, Motel Hell, The Crazies, Society, Cool as Ice.
What is wrong with this video?
Some of the earlier episodes (specifically, 2, 15, and 16) had some flickering/skipping video due to a bad video card. I replaced it and that solved that. Those videos are still very watchable, I just wanted to point out that technical detail.

Ok, there is more but if I keep going I’ll be here all night.
Do you play video games?
Way too much, actually.
What are some of your favorite video games?
Fallout series, Bard’s Tale series, Final Fantasy IV, Unreal, Shadowrun, Blaster Master, Bionic Commando.
Are you going to review video games?
I’m working on something that you could call “Good Bad Games”.
Is there anyway I can help support the show?
You could help by being a Patron! I would greatly appreciate it and it would help keep the show going.
Enjoy the flicks.
