JFD299: The Blob, The Monster of Piedras Blancas, Invasion of the Saucer-Men

Sci Fi Ebruary is here!! This week is dedicated to those old timey movies your grampa saw at a drive in circa 1959.

First, Steve McQueen, middle-aged, plays a teenage rebel who's Smalltown, USA's only hope against an organism that crash lands via a comet in 1958's "The Blob." The movie's a classic that revolutionized horror and sci fi films, but does it hold up? Only we can decide.

Next, a Creature of the Black Lagoon wannabe terrorizes a small California coastal town in 1959's "The Monster of Piedras Blancas." The movie is notable for its sex and violence. And for its poseur Creature.

Finally, little green men invade a different Smalltown, USA and get everyone drunk and then fight the local livestock in "Invasion of the Saucer-men" from 1957.

All this, plus Nerd News, DVDs, The Year of Feldman continues, feelin' like grandpas, gettin' ready for episode 300 and so much more!

JFD298: Winterbeast, A Simple Plan, Breakheart Pass


Well folks, we're officially in the icy grip of winter, so why not embrace the cold by partying with your Junk Food Dinner bros and three winter-themed movies.

Up first is the low-budget regional horror flick Winterbeast from 1992. This strange piece of straight-to-video history was shot over the course of several years and features stop-motion monster madness, a dildo that no one acknowledges, more plaid than you can shake a stick at and a truly disturbing scene featuring a clown mask, a children's record and some corpses. Also, despite this film's title and cover art, it doesn't actually take place during winter.

Next, we discuss A Simple Plan from 1998. No, not that shitty pop-punk band, the Sam Raimi flick starring Bill Paxton, Bridget Fonda and William Robert Thornton about a group of small town folk who find a bag of money in a crashed airplane and decide to keep it. But like a Biggy song come to life, mo' money means mo' problems and shit gets real.

And finally, Charles Bronson is a prisoner with a secret being transported on train filled with Civil War soldiers, but things quickly escalate when people start ending up dead in Breakheart Pass from 1975.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Parker avoiding illness, Kyle from Kentucky, a caller obsessed with numerals, Nerd News & Blu-ray Picks, movies inspired by t-shirts, defense of Sam Raimi's middle period, Mexican Ozzy, continued lack of police involvement and so much more!

JFD297: Desperate Teenage Lovedolls, Blue Monkey, Dream a Little Dream

Speaking of movies that have been made, it's another round of weird-ass cult movie reviews from your pals at Junk Food Dinner. We meet up with murderous punk rockers, hospital aliens, and not one but two Coreys. Skipping this episode is a bozo no-no.

First up! No-budget punksploitation has never been so sleazy! It's 1984 Los Angeles, and local zine We Got Power and film maker David Markey got together with local band Redd Kross to slap together this story of a girl-punk band gone awry, with influences ranging from Russ Meyer to John Waters. Featuring matricide! It's Desperate Teenage Lovedolls!

Up next! You may have heard of "Green Monkey" and you've probably heard of "Insect!". You've also heard of "Inseminátor" and "Invasion of the Bodysuckers." But have you heard that these are all titles for the same 1987 alien-invading-a-hospital horror flick? Well, they are and it is called Blue Monkey and we watched it.

Finally! It's a classic tale of body swapping (or is it?) It features performances by both Corey's (or does it?) The only thing that's certain is that 1989's Dream A Little Dream is discussed. We think.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Health Insurance premiums, Night Train to Terrible???, Buttery Burgers, Musical Junkmail, The Sweetest Man Alive, Controversial Deaths on the Record, Nerd News & DVD Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD296: City of the Living Dead, From Beyond, The Necronomicon


This week's episode is indescribable, unspeakable and cosmically horrifying. It's an H.P. Lovecraft theme show! (Well, mostly.) HP New Year!

First, a story so Lovecraftian it isn't even based on Lovecraft at all! Lucio Fulci's "City of the Living Dead" (aka "Gates of Hell") from 1980 is a tale of a journalist and a psychic tasked with stopping the gates of hell from opening after a priest commits suicide. It's also the tale of a homeless pedophile. For some reason.

Next, Stuart Gordon adapts a short story for 1985's "From Beyond." The director teams back up with Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton ("Re-Animator") for this tale of scientists who accidentally discover that monsters are all around them constantly.

Finally, Jeffrey Combs returns as Lovecraft himself in the anthology film "Necronomicon" from 1993. Brian Yuzna, Christophe Gans, Shusuke Kaneko each direct a story based on the author's works. The tales include squid monsters, reanimation and demonic space bats.

All this, plus Nerd News, DVDS, Binders full of women, Old Zealand, Tom Cruise Chat, Who's the REAL Freado?, Voicemails, friendly chat, the possibility of a beautiful boob slipping out and so much more.

JFD295: Bat Pussy, Café Flesh, The Bikini Carwash Company II


It's 2016 and Junk Food Dinner wants to wish you a Happy NUDE Year!

We kick things off by recounting our favorite (and least favorite) films of the past year, 2015. Does Parker like Star Wars? Has Sean come around to Mad Max: Fury Road? Tune in and find out!

Then things get erotic(?) as we scope out three very odd and very different sex films.

Up first, two drunken hillbillies trade insults as the sloppily try to perform oral sex on each other until the are interrupted by a chick in a homemade Batman costume in the worst porno ever, Bat Pussy from 1973.

Then, Herbert W. Day (AKA Jerry Stahl) and Rinse Dream (AKA Stephen Sayadian), the guys who brought us Dr. Caligari, take us on a surreal erotic journey to a bizarre future where nuclear fallout has turned half the population into sexless mutants who come from miles around to watch Michelle Bauer and a host of other art/porn stars go at it in Café Flesh from 1982.

And finally, if you ever flipped through HBO and Cinemax late at night back in the 90's, chances are you probably saw some of The Bikini Carwash Company II from 1993. In this installment, the bikini carwash girls have gone corporate, but wouldn't you know it, the greedy fat cats are trying to screw them out of their company. Luckily, in this alternate reality, getting nude can solve all of life's problems.

All this plus witty banter between friends, cheeseburger reviews, drunk driving tips, how to start a road trip mix, rap cassingle chat, disrespect of Ed Helms, Parker's pop-punk round up, audio clips of redneck bickering, naughty jazz songs and a whole lot more!

JFD Rewind Episode #2 - Dressed to Kill, The Impossible Kid, Slaughtered Vomit Dolls


With the world once again entrenched in what the ancient texts describe as a severe outbreak of Holiday Fever, it makes sense that other podcasters haven't had the time or fortitude to produce a new episode this Holiday week. And while it is true that your charming hosts are currently enjoying the holidays in a serene, secluded, secretive island retreat with absolutely no cannibals and/or zombies, unable to record a new show - they've also devised a clever approach to maintain a steady output of JFD-branded content for your listening enjoyment. Tricks like this are pretty much why those Junk Food Dinner guys are the critical darlings of the Goings On About Town editors at the New Yorker, among other places, and precisely why you've got something to listen to this week.

So it's come to this: another Junk Food Dinner clip show. This week on Junk Food Dinner Rewind: a carefully curated collection of the finest musical selections, a Dad-Hattan Voicemail Segment, and three classic JFD reviews culled from the vaults. It's the perfect thing to listen to while avoiding all the members of your family this Holiday Season.

First up! We're joined by Cory from the live magic trick sensation / podcasting endeavor Illogical Contraption to discuss some controversial points about Dressed to Kill from 1980. Snatched from the jaws of our Brian De Palma theme show, our hot takes here riled up the Internet like nothing since the Moldy Strawberries incident. They'll probably get you riled as well, unless you've already heard this one.

Up next, we take a fresh look at the exploits of diminutive Fillipino action star extraordinaire, Weng Weng, with The Impossible Kid from 1982. We all enjoyed the little guy's big moves in his earlier film, For Y'ur Height Only, but will this sequel prove to be too repetitive? Or will the slavery-like reality of Weng Weng's real-life existence (exposed in a recent documentary) prove to be the element that sours our experience? One thing's for sure, nobody feels comfortable about any of this.

Finally, what would a year in JFD history be without a summer filled with regrets? That's right, we return to the Ghoul Summer graveyard and dig up our review of Slaughtered Vomit Dolls from 2006. For reasons unknown to man, Parker Bowman thought this would be a great pick for the show. We're joined by "True Ghoul" Mike Dikk (from Kissing Contest) and "The Ghost Of" Mark Freado (from being a ghost) to try and figure out why (and stifle some vomit of our own).

All this plus witty banter between friends, witty banter between Freados, zero Nerd Newsies, no week's DVD & blu-ray releases, absolute confidentiality, continued lack of police involvement, robot voices, musical interludes, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a little bit more!

JFD294: Krampus, Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2, Eyes Wide Shut

This week, please avoid getting run over by a reindeer as we tackle the Cult of Christmas with some Ho Ho Horror Movies and some Ho Ho Hookers (in Eyes Wide Shut). It's our final show of 2015 and the last thing we need is another raise in our podcasting insurance premiums. Happy Holidays, everyone!

First up! Director Michael Dougherty follows up his 2007 ode to Halloween, Trick 'r Treat, with this creepy tale of Christmas, Krampus from 2015! Adam Scott, Toni Collette and David Koechner star in this PG-13 family comedy / horror retelling of the German fairy tale. It's got all the CGI gingerbread men of a latter day Charles Band flick, but is this holiday stocking stuffer just a lump of coal?

Up next! You've seen the first Silent Night Deadly Night, which means you've already seen almost exactly 50% of the 1987 sequel Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2! This "sequel" started its life as a simple re-redit of the original film which would be passed off as a sequel, until the director was able to secure minimal funding and minimally talented actors to slap together 40 minutes of original footage. It's got all the garbage day scenes, but is this night "Silent (comma) Deadly", or is it "Silent but Deadly" (ie, farts)?

Finally! Nobody sane would complain about Freado-ing this Christmas pick, because it's the final film of Stanley Kubrick's career, Eyes Wide Shut from 1999. Tom Cruise gets roped up in a secret sexy society in ritzy/dreamy New York City while dealing with wife Nicole Kidman's fantasies of infidelity. It's definitely got Christmas trees, but does this movie warrant the #TomPolitics that one of our hosts brings to the table? Don't let Scientology kill us for what we say on this episode!

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, DVDs, putting the christ back in Christmas, Miley Cyrus updates, NYC subway drag queens, Star Wars Force Awakens chats, the Reagan Myth, serious accidents and sliced thumbs, Terminator talks, farts farts farts wasted dogs, German grandmothers, laughing at campy movies, finding the right key, chair dancing, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD293: Spring, Making Contact, Mad Foxes

It's a Christmas miracle and ol' Santa JFD is giving presents to three special boys. We've picked three listener-suggested movies this week.

First up, a California slacker (Lou Taylor Pucci) travels to Italy after his parents die to find himself and falls in love with a girl with a dark secret in 2015's "Spring."

Next, a kid named Joey runs afoul of a demonic dummy after his father dies in 1985's "Making Contact." The movie was originally released in Germany under the name "Joey," directed by Roland Emmerich.

Finally, a middle-aged yuppie gets into an escalating tale of revenge and mayhem in "Mad Foxes."

All this, plus Disney Land Chat, Star Wars Chat, Sean's advance Hateful 8 review, DVDs, nerd news, bleeps, bloops and scooby bops.
