September Schedule

Hey, Junkies! We're ready for a sweet Fall cool off period. It's the time between Shock & Awegust and Schlocktober when the air gets crisp and we just like chillin' next to the VHS player. Two of our theme episode ideas originated during JFD219 so if you haven't listened to that, go do it! September is also a time for strapping on a backpack and going back to school, hence our other two theme episodes. Enjoy, Junkies, because after this month, things get creppy and spoopy like you wouldn't believe. In fact, there's still time to vote for our Schlocktober theme shows, so try that out, too.

JFD225: Tintorera: Killer Shark, Jaws 3-D, Sharknado 2

Junk Food Dinner wades into schlock-infested waters as Shock and Awegust transforms into SHARK & JAWSGUST for a week! Guest Faith Von Awesome joins us this week while Kevin's in Boston - and one of us doesn't survive the episode!

First up, a swinging bachelor hits the high-seas for cocaine fueled orgies and intermittent shark violence in 1977's Tintorera: Killer Shark! This Mexisploitation flick stars Hugo Stiglitz and is notable for being one of the first Jaws rip-offs, as well as being one of the few softcore shark films. It's also kind of like a Cannibal Holocaust for sharks, if you know what I mean. 

Next, we tackle the perhaps-not-the-best but-definitely-the-most-3-dimension Jaws sequel, Jaws 3-D from 1983! It's got Louis Gossett Jr., Dennis Quaid, and Lea Thompson running around a strangely prophetic SeaWorld, but does it have any sharks?

Finally, we check in with the second in what's sure to be a long-running annual tradition from Asylum Films, 2014's Sharknado 2! Noted scribe Thunder Levin delivers a script crammed with celebrity cameos, movie parodies, and sharks, but can critical darling Anthony C. Ferrante retain his auter spirit while operating in the Shark/Weather subgenre? And what artistic choice lead him to film this summer-set movie in February snow-bound NYC?

All this plus witty banter between friends, the saddest nerd newses, disco dancing, getting eaten by sharks, tanlines aplenty, burps, sneezes and so much more!

JFD224: Operation Warzone, Rapid Fire, Future Force


Shock and Awegust kicks off this week with some truly insane action from Action International Pictures. It's our David A. Prior theme show! Get ready for low-budget insanity from the king of action trash! Parker Bowman's on assignment with Doctor Evil, so we're joined this week by Rachel Thode and Nick Jones!

First up, tons of tough guy stuff is set to the weirdest synth pop music you might find on VHS in 1988's Operation Warzone, an inexplicable low budget Vietnam movie from David A. Prior!

Next up, we seek out the world's most powerful (and ridiculous) weapon Rapid Fire from 1989! There's also something about a code that may have been changed.

Finally, we tackle our final David A. Prior flick for the show, 1989's Future Force! The always-weird David Carradine gets even weirder with the attachment of a flying bionic arm he uses for bad police work!

All this plus witty banter between friends, Bloody Mary's, bad explosions, crazy fist fights, crotch punching, DTMF weaponry, burps, sneezes and so much more!

JFD223: Cannibal Holocaust, Come and See, The Untold Story

It's our second and final Ghoul Summer episode of the year and we're joined by Ghoul Godfather, Mike Dikk (of Kissing Contest) to discuss 3 movies he picked.

First, a professor goes deep into the Amazon to track down his missing documentarian students. But he only finds their footage and the grisly atrocities contained therein in 1980's Cannibal Holocaust. The flick, directed by Ruggero Deodato basically invented the Found Footage genre.

Next, a young Russian boy finds a gun and joins the army to fight back against the Nazis during World War II in 1985's "Come and See." It's a movie widely regarded as one of the best movies ever made.

Finally, Police Academy -esque bungling cops hunt a madman doing nefarious things in his restaurant in 1993's "The Untold Story."

All this plus witty banter between ghouls, Orion: The Comic-Con Correspondent, Turtles and their cool bodies, Nerd News, Blu-rays, Being a "cost-effective" ghoul, the podcast gold rush and so much more!

Pick our Schlocktober Movies!

Hey, creeps. We hope you're celebrating Ghoul Summer by getting a nose bleed and not knowing why or getting some food caught in your throat. As you may have seen from your half goth/half rockabilly friends on Facebook, we're just 100 days out from Halloween, which means JFD's 5th annual Schlocktober is right around the bend.

Last year, we did 5 episodes dedicated to 5 of our favorite horror franchises. And this year, we're looking to do the same thing. Except replace "our" with "your." In the top left corner of the site, you'll see a poll. We nominated some franchises we want to honor for Ghoul Summer. Now it's up to you to pick the Top 4. We'll call this around the last week of September, so get voting early and often to make sure we do your Halloween jams!

JFD222: Men Behind the Sun, Tetsuo, the Iron Man, The Secret Life: Jeffrey Dahmer

What's that terrible smell coming from the basement of Junk Food Dinner studios? It's the unmistakable stench of GHOUL SUMMER! You sick fucks asked for it, so now you've got it! TWO WEEKS of Ghoul Summer this year. And we're kicking things off correctly by bringing in a professional ghoul, The Memphis Maniac(!) to pick our three ghoulish features this week.

Up first, while the Nazis get all the ghoulish attention, The Men Behind the Sun from 1988 shows that the Japanese were up to some serious ghoulish shit during World War II as well.. This Chinese film tells the tale of Squadron 731, a prison camp where Japanese soldiers and scientists commit gruesome atrocities against prisoners. This flick also earns bonus ghoul points for using real cadavers and animal cruelty. 


Next, Shin'ya Tsukamoto smacks us upside the skull with his frantic, industrial horror art flick Tetsuo, the Iron Man  from 1989 about a man whose body begins to transform into machinery. Shot in black & white and at a breakneck pace, this tight and abrasive film starts out nuts and never lets up.


Finally, shortly after the arrest of one of the most notorious serial killers, the low-budget horror flick The Secret Life: Jeffrey Dahmer was released in 1993 in an attempt to cash in on the morbid curiosity surrounding the crimes at the time. Directed by David R. Bowen and starring Carl Crew as the Milwaukee cannibal, this crude flick, despite it's shortcomings, found its way onto a surprising amount of video store shelves due to its sensational nature.


All this plus witty banter between ghouls, apes with machine guns, metal songs, Nerd News, Blu-rays, Chick Tracks, The Mephis Maniac pissing and so much more!

JFD221: War of the Stars, Traxx, SymbioPsychoTaxiPlasm: Take One

It's a weird episode this week, Junkies, as we do a fan edit of a classic, a (possible) genius satire and a meta documentary.

First, a young farmer saves the galaxy with the Force in 2010's "War of the Stars: A New Hope Grindehoused." The Man Behind the Mask re-edited George Lucas' original 1977 "Star Wars" to fit in with the Grindehouse aesthetic we love so much on JFD. The movie is re-cut, re-scored and re-diculous now. Next, radio legend Shadoe Stevens is a lawman who just wants to kill and bake cookies in "Traxx" from 1988. Lawman Traxx is tasked with cleaning up and "taming" a violent Texas town, while simultaneously trying to get his cookie-making business off the ground.

Finally, a film crew is hired to film a film crew that's following a feature film in 1968's "Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One." Steven Soderbergh championed the restoration of this film and Criterion has released it.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Mystery voicemails, Virtual Mark, suspicion about Kevin's absence, "these limp wrists," Comic Con Chat and so much more!

JFD220: Mahakaal, Dreamaniac, Bad Dreams


Welcome to our nightmare this week as Junk Food Dinner checks out three Fake Freddy Fiascos! These flicks all borrow heavily from A Nightmare on Elm Street, but are they a dream come true? It depends on how much you enjoy moonwalking.

First up, an Indian Michael Jackson impersonator, silly kung fu fights, harrowing gang-rapes, songs about picnics, and a certain razor-gloved dream demon collide in 1993's Bollywood Freddy movie Mahakaal aka The Monster! This bizarre fusion of elements shouldn't work at all, but the Ramsay brothers manage to pull off something special. It has boogers!

Next up, we check out David DeCoteau's feature debut Dreamaniac from 1986! This Charles Band production features an awesome VHS cover on Wizard Video, but can the movie compare? We hope you like underpants.

Finally, we tackle another Freddy rip-off, 1988's Bad Dreams! The always-creepy Richard Lynch plays a crispy-faced cult leader stalking Jennifer Rubin through a mental hospital in this clear rip-off of A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 3! With extra-spooky fire effects!

All this plus witty banter between friends, the Darko/Arsenio connection, an all-star lineup of callers, tales of the wild west, Nightmare Feddy's, burps, sneezes and so much more!
