JFD239: Centipede Horror, Going Overboard, Dragon Ball: Fight Son Goku, Win Son Goku


We knew the day would come where we would have to face off with the vaunted Randomizer 5000 once again, we just didn't expect it would be so soon. Yet, that day is here. Brace yourself, Junk Food Junkies - the Randomizer's wrath has no reprieve!

First up, we burrow into Sean's own personal insectoid nightmares with the ghoulish and ghastly Centipede Horror (aka Wu Gong Zhou) from 1982! This early CAT-III flick is one of the crazier Hong Kong bugsploitation movies, as that's really saying something. Maybe don't eat a heavy meal before this one, guys.

Next, things go from bad to worse with everyone's favorite funnyman, Adam Sandler, in 1989's Going Overboard! A pre-SNL/pre-fame/pre-funny Sandler somehow landed the lead role in this boat-bound "comedy", including surprising (until you read this) cameos from Billy Zane and Milton Berle! Cats will be slapped.

Lastly, we travel to a subtitle-free zone in South Korea for 1990's Dragon Ball: Fight Son Goku, Win Son Goku, an unofficial Korean live-action remake of the original Dragon Ball series. There's a whole lot of awkward touching, and then Gamera shows up to bite some dude's dick. Is this really a kids movie?

All this plus friendly banter between wits, the live results of our JFD 700th Movie Commentary poll, Kevin's Wild and Woolly Video Voyages, Parker's Adventures Throughout the Lucha Underground, Sean's Traumatic Insectoid History, a traffic jam of movie releases, Nerd News, our Junky DVD picks for the week, the latest Vine critiques, Double Sheens, listener calls and Junk Mails, sneezes, boogers and so much more!

JFD238: Horns, Call Girl of Cthulu, WolfCop

Hey, Junkies! This week, we continue checking out the delights of 2014 cinema with three more new movies.

First up, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) is a young man who's dealing with the fact that everyone in town thinks he killed his girlfriend in "Horns." Things get way worse, or maybe better, when he begins to get Satan-like in appearance. The flick is directed by Alexandre Aja (High Tension, Piranha 3D) and based on a book by Joe Hill (Stephen King's son).

Next, the team that brought us The WNUF Halloween Special return with their Kickstarter-funded "Call Girl of Cthulu." A young nerd and his prostitute love interest run afoul of a cult that worships ancient alien gods and need the Necronomicon to summon them. Or something. Get ready for Deep Ones and things that are Unamable.

Finally, a drunk cop is turned into a werewolf as a part of a nefarious plan. "Wolf Cop" is directed by Lowell Dean and is a throw-back to a time when cops were sometimes monsters. Literally, we mean. Not the kind of monsters they are now.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Parker's return, low milk, Junk Mail, GWAR stories, Nerd News, DVD & Blu-ray releases, a bad Austin Powers voice, The Brain redux and so much more.

JFD237: Blue Ruin, Guardians of the Galaxy, Autómata

Welp, Halloween season's over, butthorns, and as 2014 starts winding down JFD calls upon foundingmember Mark Freado Jr to join us to examine some flicks from the past year. 

Up first, up-and-coming direct Jeremy Saulnier weaves a tale about a Virginia man, Dwight (Macon Blair), who has become a vagrant after the murder of his parents. But when he gets the news that the man responsible for their deaths is released from prison, Dwight goes into full revenge mode in Blue Ruin.

Then, it's not often that JFD tackles one of the biggest films of the year, but in the case of Guardians of the Galaxy, it was too good to be ignored. Director James Gunn (Slither, Super) brings a culty vibe to this comic book tale about a space loser (Chris Pratt) and his gang of misfits who are trying to transport a valuable orb across the cosmos.

Finally, Spanish director Gabe Ibáñez mixes a bit of Blade Runner and a dash of District 9, to create a futuristic tale where where the human population has dwindled and relies on robots to do the work once done by humans. But when Antonio Banderas discovers that the robots may be self-aware, he goes on a quest to protect mankind in Autómata.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Halloween regrets, low milk, Junk Mail, video mix tapes, Nerd News, DVD & Blu-ray releases, touching stories, Freado's ever-present Skype noise, Buzz from Home Alone, condoms stretched over pineapples and so much more.

JFD236: Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, Halloween: Resurrection, Halloween (2007)


Well, it’s finally happened, Junk Food Junkies! Our final week of Schlocktober is an extra historic episode this week as all three of your JFD hosts are recording without the benefit of Internet anonymity! It’s an in-person JFD episode, recorded live from a garage in East LA (lock the gates!) with none other than the Razor-man himself, Jason “Cumulus” Frisbie of Pool Purdy Radio fame, (un)fresh from the 9th Annual Horrorthon at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica! Lack of sleep and a complete non-lack of the heaviest doobies collide with Listener Beers and we get so turnt while reviewing these Halloween flicks. It’s the spoopiest, creepiest episode of JFD yet!

First up, we’re drowning in slasher cliches in Steve Miner’s soggy sequel, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later from 1998! Michael Myers is back, you say? Jamie Lee Curtis returns and is joined by newcomers, Michelle Williams, Josh Hartnett, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and LL Cool J. Look out for a misplaced tribute to Psycho with Janet Leigh!

Next, the Halloween series is revived yet again with Halloween: Resurrection from 2002, directed by Rick Rosenthal! You’ll never believe it, but Michael Myers is back (despite that pesky decapitation). Jamie Lee Curtis appears alongside Tyra Banks and Busta Rhymes in this more experimental, Information Superhighway Themed ode to cyberspace slasherdom. Also, humans are the real aliens (spoiler).

Finally, we’ve done it. We’ve watched Robert Zombie’s remake, Halloween from 2007. Set in an indistinct time period and chock full of Zombie’s naked wife, this song features multiple sequences with Don’t Fear the Reaper on the soundtrack. Malcom McDowell plays a hippie who just wants to meet a kid (aka Dr. Loomis), and the rest of the cast is populated by an unbelievable roster of cult character actors, including Brad Dourif, William Forsythe, Richard Lynch, Udo Kier, Clint Howard, Danny Trejo, Bill Moseley, Dee Wallace, Ken Foree, Sybil Danning, Sid Haig, Courtney Gains, Kazu Nagahama and more!

All this plus the wittiest real-time banter between friends, no Skype weirdness whatsoever, tons of off-mic shenanigans, Oatmeal-Fu, burps, Staying Up All Night Doing That Homework, chilling in H-towns, Pointy-Ass Klaus Kinski, Super Sentais, french grandpas, monster deans, The Return of the Hubba Bubba, sneezes, boogers and so much more!

Thanks again to Gene Siskel’s BaldingHead for the brewskis!

JFD235: Phantasm II, Phantasm III, Phantasm IV

We're still knee-deep in Schlocktober and this week, we're grabbing our quad-barrel shotgun and jumping in our Hemi-Cuda to follow the Tall Man.

First, Mike and his friend are hunting The mysterious Tall Man across the west, but only finding the ghost towns he leaves in his wake in 1988's "Phantasm 2."

Next, It's more of the same cat and mouse game in 1994's "Phantasm III: The Lord of the Dead." Now Reggie has a rag tag team of ghoul-killers, including a little kid (Of course.)

Finally, blood and guts turns into trippy surreality in "Phantasm IV: Oblivion" from 1998.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Podcat Bro Meet Up Chat, the weirdest ghost Busters fan, remaking old scripts, smelly vinyl records, upcoming DVD and blu-ray releases and so much more.

JFD234: Creepshow, Creepshow 2, Creepshow 3


Schlocktober continues this week with our tribute to the (mostly) classic horror anthology, Creepshow!

Up first, George Romero directs a series of creepy tales penned by Stephen King in the original Creepshow from 1982. In this entry we get tales of zombies, human weeds, water logged lovers, razor-toothed apes and killer cockroaches with the acting talents of Tom Atkins, Ed Harris, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Fritz Weaver and E. G. Marshall.

Then, five years later in 1987 New World Pictures continued the horror with Creepshow 2. This time directing credit goes to Michael Gornick with three more stories from Stephen King featuring revenge-seeking wooden Indians, killer oil slicks and persistent hitchhikers. Featuring performances from Tom Savini, George Kennedy, Paul Satterfield and Lois Chiles.

Finally, and inexplicably, Creepshow returned (in name only) in 2006 with a new entry attempting, Creepshow 3 to cash in on the fans' love of the first two flicks. This time around we get some sub-par tales of evil remote controls, supernatural radios, killer hookers, mail order brides and haunted hot dogs. Ana Clavell and James Dudelson helm this ripoff with performances from Roy Abramsohn, AJ Bowen, Camille Lacey and Kris Allen.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Twinkie talk, a discussion on what exactly "boba" is, the formation of the JFD band The Shadmocks, nerd news about glam rock icons trying to act, smelly vinyl records, upcoming DVD and blu-ray releases, a Wesley Willis song and so much more.

JFD233: Zombi 2, Zombi 3, Zombi 4


Shamble on over to your podcast machine and fire up Junk Food Dinner, because we've unearthed a trio of classic Italian Zombie flicks! It's Zombi Week as Schlocktober continues!

First up, eyeballs get poked and zombies get shark bites in Lucio Fulci's 1979 classic, Zombi 2! Spooky music and an apocalyptic Carribean jungle atmosphere shape this pseudo-sequel to George Romero's Dawn of the Dead.

Next up, we venture into the jungle once again with Zombi 3 from 1988! This not-really-a-sequel to Zombi 2 was abandoned by Lucio Fulci and finished by Bruno Mattei, but can it really be that bad? It has more zombie birds than Zombie 5: Killing Birds!

Finally, we check out Claudio Fragasso (Troll 2's) contribution to the Zombi semi-franchise, the retitled-as-a-Zombi-sequel jungle zombie picture Zombi 4 (aka After Death) from 1989! Cloth-faced zombies drool green slime for some reason, and machine guns fire sound effects instead of bullets. It's a weird one!

All this plus the wittiest banter between friends, Zombie Coughs, Scarecrow Horror Movie Chats, The Spectacle Theater Sleepover, The Zombie Code, The Steve Polychronopolous Movie, Strange Colored Blood, the Man with a Plan, Voodoo Priest Manboobs, Zombie Kung Fu, burps, sneezes, boogers and so much more!

JFD232: The Howling 2, 3, 4

Schlocktober starts now, Junkies! This is JFD's annual celebration of everything spoopy and creppy. You voted on the movies we'll do for this year's Autumn Harvest and it all starts with our "The Howling" theme show! Check out the episode where we did the original Here.

First, Reb Brown ("Space Mutiny") and Christopher Lee ("Dracula") travel to Transylvania (for some reason) to hunt down a mysterious cult of sexy S&M werewolves lead by Sybil Danning ("Chained Heat"). Directed by Philippe Mora and based on the novel by the original film's creator, this is "The Howling 2: Your Sister is a Werewolf."

Next, director Philippe Mora returns with an all new cast of characters and a storyline not related to the first two in any way! In "The Howling 3: The Marsupials," a filmmaker falls in love with an Australian girl who is actually a marsupial werewolf!

Finally, director John Hough ("Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry") brings us "The Howling 4: The Original Nightmare." The movie is named as much as it's basically a remake of the first one: a young woman heads out to the country after some traumatizing incidents to relax. But then she hears a mysterious howling...

All this plus the wittiest banter between friends, all your goofy voicemail pals, werewolf songs, wrestle chat, USAgent, Nerd News, blu-rays, and so much more!
