Junk Food Dinner Podcast: Episode #32


All things move towards their end, as Shlocktober comes to a close with our Halloween Extravaganza. We start off waxing nostalgic about the good ol' days and then dive right in. This week, we welcome Faith Von Awesome to chime in along the way as we discuss our Halloween picks.


We kick things off with the 1978 slasher that started it all- John Carpenter's "Halloween."


Next up- we learn you can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friends nose- unless you happen to be the title character from the 2002 giallo-esque "May."


Finally, Halloween comes full circle in an anthology set in the heart of it all- 2009's "Trick r' Treat."


No Nerd News or DVD Releases on this one, but check out #31, if you can't get enough.

The Beginning of the Walking Dead

Zombies are a total cocktease. AMC has released the first 5 or so minutes of The Walking Dead. They've done this to tease our cocks. Anyway, if you're too amped up on candy corn and Jagermeister to wait until Sunday, here's how the end of the world begins...

The Spookening.


Way back in Episode 10, we covered a movie near and dear to Parker's heart: SPOOKIES! Not long after that, we received a number of emails from cast and crew members from the film. A few emails and a move to New York later, and we got ourselves a genuine reunion.

Tonight from 9:00-10:30 (EST) Mark will take part in a round-table discussion with the cast and crew of SPOOKIES on ZEDALZA NEW YORK.

It'll stream live and then be up on the internest in case you miss it.

Watch the entire interview & Spookies commentary:

Junk Food Dinner Podcast: Episode #31


















It's a state of national emergency! Episode #31 of Junk Food Dinner is here!

It’s the fourth week of Schlocktober as we explore three zombie-themed movies.

First, a group drama geeks dig up a corpse and use it in a ritual to raise the dead in 1973’s Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things directed by Bob Clark.

Then, it’s punk rockers, acid rain and animated corpses in the classic 1985 horror-comedy Return of the Living Dead directed by Dan O'Bannon.

And finally, survivors of the zombie apocalypse take refuge in a mall in Zack Snyder's 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead starring Sarah Polley, Ving Rhames and Mekhi Phifer.

Also, we have Nerds News, this week's DVD and Blu-Ray releases and much more!

Orcs attack normal people now, not just hobbits

When watching Lord of the Rings, do you enjoy the scenes with Orcs and goblins but groan at the scenes of midgets walking around the countryside, confessing their love to one another? Then, boy oh boy, do I have the movie for you!

Felicia Day to hunt, possibly kill werewolves

Knock Knock.

"Who's there," you ask?

It's the motherfucking ScyFy channel with a movie about Felicia Day killing werewolves!!






I'm not normally a fan of werewolf movies, but count me in for this one. You know why? Felicia Day is why!!

Besides, even if it sucks real bad, it will still be way better than that Wes Craven werewolf movie.

Whatever Happened to Jackie Kong?

If you grew up watching movies on cable television in the 80's or 90's, chances are you happened upon the work of director Jackie Kong at some point.

Ms. Kong was responsible for some of the more off-the-wall flicks to come out in the 80's. Her first film, 1983's "The Being" was about a young boy who turns into a killer mutant running amok in Idaho. She followed that up the next year with the zany police comedy "Night Patrol" starring Linda Blaire. Then 1987 saw the release of two Kong-directed features, another goofball comedy "The Underachievers" and one of my all-time favorite horror comedies, the highly underrated "Blood Diner". Then... nothing.

What happened to this
off-beat female director responsible for some of the most memorable cult films of the video era? Why did she leave the film industry and what has she been up to since?

Well, Jackie Kong is ready to answer those questions very soon, on her brand new forthcoming website JackieKongFilms.com. I for one am very excited to get some updates. Check it out!

And maybe if we're really lucky, we can talk Ms. Kong into an interview with us here at Junk Food Dinner. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Simon Pegg and his chubby friend adopt an alien

I'll go ahead and assume you enjoy movies where Simon Pegg and Nick Frost get together and be friends. So do I. I also enjoy movies where people hang out with nice aliens. So, clearly I'm excited for this new film, "Paul," that combines these two things.

Except I'm sorta not. You see, the alien is voiced by that dreadful comedy killer Seth Rogen.

When did Hollywood forget that there are things called "voice actors?" Any time a cartoon or CGI character needs voiced now, Hollywood just pulls up the name of some crappy actor and calls it a day.

Ugh. Anyway, here's the trailer.

GWAR's Oderus Urungus to appear on JFD

If you haven't listened to JFD29 go do it now, otherwise you're gonna get a spoiler. If you've already listened, congratulations! You're a good JFD fan!

The good news is, we've suckered another awesome celebrity to be on the show and let us ask them questions! In the first week of November, we'll unveil our GWAR Theme Show with special guest Oderus Urungus (aka Dave Brockie)!!

We'll discuss the GWAR films "Phallus in Wonderland" and "Skulhedface" then talk to Dave about the making of those films, future GWAR films and the band's inevitable rape of humankind.

In the meantime, go to Gwar's Website to check out their tour dates because you need to see the greatest band in the world before you die (in this case, very shortly before you die (because GWAR will rape and murder you at the show)). Also, watch GWAR on the Jimmy Fallon show on Oct. 28!!

And be sure to BUY GWAR's new album "Bloody Pit of Horror" on Nov. 9!

Say You Love Satan.


In Episode #29, we discussed a tape that Mark has featuring an interview/jam session with some Satanic teenagers from upstate New York in the mid-1980's. It's about an hour long. You'll like it. No doubt these kids are pretty wild (eating frogs), but the level of their devotion to the dark lord seems suspect. To be fair, though, this was right before the infamous Ricky Kasso fiasco. Maybe they stepped their game up a little.
See you in hell.

Side A
Side B

Junk Food Dinner Podcast: Episode #29

















Hail Satan! It’s the second week of Schlocktober as we get demonic with our Satanic theme show.

First up, we get trapped in a movie theater filled with evil, soul-possessing monsters in the Dario Argento-produced horror flick Demons from 1985 directed by Lamberto Bava.

Then, we follow a demonic cop into the underworld to reclaim our girlfriend in the whacky 1992 horror-comedy Highway to Hell starring Chad Lowe, Kristy Swanson and the entire Stiller family!

And finally, a young college girl takes a babysitting job she won’t soon forget in the stylish ode to 80’s atmospheric horror, The House of the Devil from 2009 directed by Ti West and starring Joceline Donahue, Tom Noonan and Mary Woronov.

Also, we have Nerds News, this week's DVD and Blu-Ray releases and much more!

Taiwan has the best news.

I know, I know. This isn't movie news, but whatever. It's been a slow movie news week. All that's happened is that some dude I've never heard of is playing a yet-unnamed villain in the new SpiderMan movie that nobody cares about.

So, there's this: Some wacky Asian news show took the time to explain this California Marijuana stuff better than any news show I've seen on American TV.

(Three the Hard) Warrior's Way

Woah! Check this shit out!!

Not only do two of history's baddest ass dudes fight (cowboys, ninjas), but the goddamn thing looks like it was made out of beautiful paintings.

Faster, The Rock! Kill! Kill!

As a fan of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, I've always been disappointed that his movies that I enjoy ("Southland Tales," "Walking Tall" and "The Rundown" were made at the beginning of his post-wrestling career. Since then, he's done a few lame cookie-cutter hit movies ("Get Smart," "The Game Plan" and "Race to Witch Mountain") he's made some astoundingly awful choices ("The Tooth Fairy" and "Doom") and he was even in something so hideously disgusting that all record of it should be expunged from the history of the Earth (a Tyler Perry movie).

So maybe it's that drought of good movies that has me optimistic for his newest film "Faster." It looks to be the kind of movie that you would have expected The Rock to make 10 years ago when he decided to stop giving Mick Foley brain damage and start making movies. It's about a dude who decides to get revenge on some punks that killed someone he loved. Fuck yes! That's all I need to know!

Hopefully it's good and we'll discuss it on a sequel to our Revenge Theme Show.






I should say, though, that one of Johnson's crappier movies did spawn one of my favorite internet memes of all time:

Like a bowl full of grits, but way more gritty

The new Coen brothers movie, "True Grit," has a trailer!! If you want to see a preview of who's gonna be winning ten million Oscars next year, I suggest you watch it. Although, if you don't want the entire plot spoiled, I suggest you don't watch it. Either way, it looks pretty goddamn good.

Junk Food Dinner Podcast: Episode #28

















Pour yourself a glass of your favorite blood type (personally we find that Type B+ goes best with junk food) because Episode #28 of Junk Food Dinner is here!

It’s the start of Schlocktober (see the post below for more details) as we kick the month off with our vampire theme show.

First, we see what happens when a family moves to a new town plagued by bloodsuckers in the 1987 film The Lost Boys starring Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Corey Feldman and Keifer Sutherland.

Then, a vapid cheerleader learns about her birthright as a hunter of the undead in 1992’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring Kristy Swanson, Donald Sutherland (those Sutherlands sure love vampires) Rutger Hauer, Paul Reubens and Luke Perry.

And finally, a young boy finds out the disturbing truth about his new neighbor in the superb Swedish thriller Let the Right One In from 2008.

Also, we have Nerds News, this week's DVD and Blu-Ray releases and much more!

Luke Cage, the rabid Satanist hippie

On the most recent episode, I mentioned the fact that in "I Drink Your Blood" the character Rollo looks just like Marvel Superhero Luke Cage. Here's proof.
