RMG 064: Better Off Dead… (1985)

April 19, 2017

In this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew are joined by T.C. DiBella owner and operator of the Asheville Pinball Museum (CLICK HERE for more) and we’re geeking out over Better Off Dead… (1985) and

  • the Asheville Pinball Museum
  • 80s movies
  • nostalgia bombs
  • and much, much more!


Lane Meyer is very much in love with his girlfriend, Beth (or maybe obsessed is a better word), so when she dumps him for the captain on the ski-team, he is beyond devastated and decides to end his life by way of a series of failed, but comical, suicide attempts!

Throw in a friend who snorts Jell-O and snow in lieu of drugs… a dad who tries to be hip… a homicidal paperboy… dancing hamburgers… a beautiful French exchange student… a mom who has no clue what-so-ever… and you have yourself a weird little movie called “Better Off Dead…”!
