It's a very special holiday presentation of THE TWO-SHOT, a podcast that's usually at the Schmoes Know Network!

You've never seen a Christmas horror movie as bizarre as ELVES, a film about a homicidal elf with a motive so weird you probably won't believe it even if you see it! It's one of the worst Christmas movies ever made, and it's the perfect double feature with the modern holiday horror classic KRAMPUS, about a family of jerks who run afoul of the spirit of the holiday's creepy counterpart!

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review the notorious movies YOU tell them to every week on THE TWO-SHOT, and use those infamous turkeys to introduce you to some of the greatest motion pictures ever made by making wild double features!

Email us at letters(a)criticallyacclaimed.net, follow your hosts on Twitter at @WilliamBibbiani and @WitneySeibold, and follow the podcast/website at @SchmoesKnow to vote for the notorious movies YOU want us to review!

Just imagine you're watching TV in 1990, and suddenly, right in the middle of primetime, you find yourself watching a "wacky" sitcom about Adolf Hitler! It really happened, and the legend of HEIL HONEY I'M HOME!, which lasted only one episode, was born.

But was HEIL HONEY I'M HOME really the most offensive television series in history, or was it a scathing political satire in the vein of THE GREAT DICTATOR, THE PRODUCERS and JOJO RABBIT? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dive into one of the most notorious CANCELED TOO SOON series ever in this very special 175th episode!

Emma Stone is an Academy Award-winning superstar, but before she was world famous, she was a reality tv contestant who won her first acting gig on THE NEW PARTRIDGE FAMILY! It was a VH1 reboot of the beloved 1970s musical sitcom, and even though it had a huge build-up it only lasted one episode.

Was THE NEW PARTRIDGE FAMILY... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold cover this forgotten chapter of TV history in the latest episode of the podcast, and also endure the insufferable horrors of the reality television contest that jumpstarted Emma Stone's career!

And you thought YOUR high school was bad? You're lucky you didn't have DEADLY CLASS, a school for assassins run by Benedict Wong (DOCTOR STRANGE), populated by adolescent murderers and future criminal overlords! This ultraviolent series aired on SyFy and was based on a comic book by Rick Remender and Wesley Craig, and even though it was produced by Joe and Anthony Russo (the directors of AVENGERS: ENDGAME) it got canceled after only one season.

Was DEADLY CLASS... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold enroll in this strange series and praise the kick-butt soundtrack, but hand out demerits for not being nearly as punk rock as it thinks it is.
