No-Budget Nightmares is a film/comedy podcast that focuses on low/microbudget/shoestring/no-budget Films. Hosts Moe Porne and Doug Tilley scour the depths of cinema to try and find the diamonds in the rough - rare as they may be - in the no-budget community. Using sound clips and commentary, the two break down each film covered in great detail, explaining what does and doesn't work and ultimately hoping to serve as both a celebration of ingenuity, as well as a “what not to do” for aspiring filmmakers.

I love this podcast
Doug & Moe's enthusiasm for Z grade films is infectious and will make you want to seek out these films despite their repeated pleas not to. The Vampire Hunter, Suburban Sasquatch, & recent Kindergarten Ninja episodes are some of the finest.
With Doug and Moe you’re in good, safe, but probably sticky hands!
I love this show. The world out there is made so much bigger and richer by it. There are shows that claim to be cult or b-movie shows and you have heard of 90% of the films before (I know I have hosted or guested on many) but the ones on NBN are true undiscovered gems of shot-on video weirdness. Doug and Moe are the hilarious, knowledgable and loveable guides on your nightmare journey into madness. CHECK IT OUT!
one of my favorites
Great podcast. Keep up the good work guys.
