JFD368: The Night of the Hunter, Danger: Diabolik, Trackdown

We're smack in the middle of this year's JFDecades run, and it's a hell of a show. We've got three wild flicks we found on the banks of the Ohio river, just upstream from that Sodom of the Midwest, Parkersburg!

First up! You know that movie with the "Love and Hate" finger tattoos? On Robert Mitchum? Playing a self-appointed Preacher slash serial killer? You know the one. It's 1955's The Night of the Hunter. Yeah, that one. We review it.

Next! Remember that weird Italian spy flick with the skin-tight, nostril-hugging masks? The one Mario Bava directed in 1968? Danger: Diabolik is the one! We talk all about that one.

Finally, who could forget Trackdown. This film, from 1976, is review lastly on the show this week. It stars James "Jim" Mitchum, eldest son of Robert Mitchum, and is being considered by some for a retroactive Academy Awards Ceremy sweep of all categories. We SPOIL THE CRAP OUT OF THIS MOVIE so you should definitely watch the movie first (streaming free on Amazon Prime, cheap on DVD).

All this plus witty banter between friends, why parker stays away from bread, dave's killer marketing team, the cream of the teens, It Comes At two nightmares in a row, Parker Bowman forgets Vanilla Sky exists, Seventy Eighty Year Old Party Monster Doug Benson, Wicks in Private, them weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, half-dry sneezes, wet belches, mega-decrepit erections, the dangers of tumblr, semi-brominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD367: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari / Gold Diggers of 1935 / Rope

Call your grampa cuz JFDecades is back again!

First, the widely influential German expressionist film, "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" from 1920. If you've seen a Tim Burton movie, you're probably gonna find the film pretty familiar.

Then, wealthy members of a New England resort put on a show in "Gold Diggers of 1935." Busby Berkely puts on some serious witchcraft in the musical numbers.

Finally, two affluent young men commit a murder just to prove they can in Alfred Hitchock's classic "Rope."

All this plus DVDS, Nerd News, Cool Junk Mails, A Wonder Woman spoiler in the stinger, Ridley Scott Sucks Chat, a death in the family and so much more!

JFD366: Forbidden World, Fist of the Northstar, Hunk

 This week on JFD we sell our movie selections and our dignity for a few measly bucks as we  let our Patreon donors pick the flicks!

Up first, our boy Josh brings us Forbidden World from 1982. In this low-budget, Roger Corman-produced, Alien rip-off, a space cowboy docks on a research ship where some scientists have inadvertently created a space mutant who is turning the crew into slimy puddles.

Up next, sweet bro Matt offers up Fist of the Northstar from 1986. This classic anime flick condenses some stories from an already popular Manga and TV show into a post-apocalyptic blood bath.

And finally, the man himself; Mickey throws us Hunk from 1987. This goofy, PG-rated, wish fulfillment beach comedy centers on a nerdy computer programmer who makes a deal with one of Satan's sexy minions to become a bodacious hunk in exchange for his soul. 

[Want to be a big shot like these guys and pick the movies we watch on Junk Food Dinner? Check out our Patreon page and find out how.]

All this plus witty banter between friends, water slide chat, our producer calls in, Alien Covenant chat, Baywatch, our world famous weekly Nerd News and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD365: Mad Bull 34, Serial Experiments Lain, The Dragon Dentist

If you're sad like we're sad and you're not sure why, it's probably because everyone's favorite new Junk Food Dinner theme month of 2017 (so far) - Ani-May, is finally coming to an end. But fret not, faithful junkie - we're closing it out in grand fashion with a trio of actual, genuine, Japanese anime flicks (or shows, or something)!

First up! You'll never believe the crazy hijinks (both sexual and violent in nature) going on in Mad Bull 34 (from 1990). It's one of those standard buddy cop flicks where dudes get their heads lopped off by oncoming trains, if you get my drift. You'll love this one.

Next! Sean channels his inner goth teenage girl with 1998's stylish but sleepy Serial Experiments Lain! It's got enough shots of power lines to keep him interested, but will Kevin or Parker give any fucks?

Finally, a film that Parker Bowman has been waiting for, for a long time. The Dragon Dentist from 2017 marks a certain milestone for Mr. Bowman on a certain Letterboxd website, which is meaningful somehow. Also, dragons get their dental hygiene looked after. It's Japanimation!

All this plus witty banter between friends, The Frisbie Opinion, Eric from Omaha, a Julian Sands classic our beloved Parker Bowman hasn't seen, monsters made out of nipples and shitty crap about time travel, Kevin Moss lying through his teeth about Oldies dot com, a Hot Topic Monster Mash, a Whitman's Sampler of super ghoulish horror flicks, them weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, half-dry sneezes, wet belches, mega-decrepit erections, semi-brominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

If you'll remember, we randomized who'd get which week and it turned out horribly for Parker who got the 20s, 30s and 40s. The rest was divvied up between Sean and Kevin.

We're also doing another Patreon-picked episode, too! It's gonna be a hoot!

Until June, spend some time on our YouTube page or donating to our Patreon and getting bonus episodes!

JFD363: Fritz the Cat, Mr. Sprinkles, Where the Dead Go to Die


We're all adults here, right? That doesn't mean we still can't watch cartoons. Ani-May rolls right along as we take a look at three adult animation oddities.

Up first, it's the granddaddy of adult animation, Fritz the Cat from 1972. Directed by Ralph Bakshi and based off the comics of R. Crumb, the x-rated 'toon made a lot of money and kicked open the door for cartoons to be dirty.

Next, back in 2007, Jack Black, Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab teamed up to create Acceptable TV, an animated sketch show that briefly ran on VH1. One of the more popular skits was Mr. Sprinkles about a Cat-in-the-Hat type creature who's losing his mind because kids are never bored anymore. From the creative team behind Rick & Morty.

And finally, what do you get when you mix PS1 cut-scene style computer animation and Ghoul Summer-worthy subject matter? Where the Dead Go to Die from 2012. It's horrendous.

All this plus witty banter between friends, listener voicemails, wrong theme songs Nerd News, Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD362: Evil Toons, The Lawnmower Man, Cool World

We're kicking off a new (annual?) tradition at Junk Food Dinner - Ani-May, our month-long tribute to animation in cult films! But we're easing into it first with a "Live Action / Animation" theme show - three flicks that blur the lines between the two mediums!

First up! Fred Olen Ray's poster/cover art for Evil Toons (from 1992) promises a whole lot of spooky/sexy cartoon action. But can it deliver, or will the budget be too impossibly low to accomodate any actual animation? And will we still be charmed by it?

Next! In what some are calling a potential "Freado Pick", we discuss the world's only Officially Desiginated non-adaptation of a Stephen King novel: The Lawnmower Man! "Groundbreaking" CGI animation sequences are used in the movie's many Virtual Reality sequences, where an "intellectually disabled" man learns latin and telekensis through the power of drugs. Starring the pilot from Lost! Also from 1992!

Finally, a film that Paramount studios clearly had no idea what to do with, and maybe we don't either. Cool World finds Ralph Bakshi near the end of his career, and Brad Pitt at the start of his. It finds a home for cartoon characters and flesh and blood alike. But does it find out a way to balance cartoonish piano-dropping gags with dark, sexual satire? Only JFD can find out. This one's ALSO from 1992?!

All this plus witty banter between friends, realistic hair and fabrics, pissed off Australians, a Carpenter's joke, the best & worst voicemail callers, steaming open root cellars, repeated disc picking, realistic film-watching standards, them weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, dry sneezes, wet belches, mega-decrepit erections, brominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD361: White of the Eye, Prince of Darkness, Shock 'em Dead

We're back with a game-changing, life-affirming episode, Junkies!

Our man Hatless Jackson Stewart joins us to discuss a fateful concert in LA where Parker, Sean, Jackson, Wife and Travis from GwarCast saw the immortal Corey Feldman LIVE. Did we find out what was up with the youth? Tune in to find out!

As for Nerd News and DVDs, there's only one piece hot enough for this episode. Jackson's movie, "Beyond the Gates" drops on Blu Ray and DVD this week, featuring an audio commentary track by the Junk Food Dinner boys! Go buy it!

As for movies, we're doing three picked by our Junk Food Dinner Patreon Pals this week. Speaking of Patreon, our first 2-hour bonus episode just dropped for $5 patrons. Go check it out at Patreon! First, a woman learns that her stereo equipment-installing husband may be a killer in "White of the Eye."

Next, a group of scientists and priests learn that Satan may be imprisoned in the basement of a local church in John Carpenter's "Prince of Darkness."

Finally, Traci Lords stars in "Shock em Dead," a film about a guitar player who sells his soul to an old voodoo lady to become a rock god.
