JFD97: Star Crash, The Woman, The Video Dead


Looking for something to stick in your ear? How about a brand spankin' new episode of Junk Food Dinner?!

This week we kick things off with the best sexy Italian Star Wars knock off ever committed to celluloid! Of course, we're talking about Starcrash from 1978. This space epic directed by Luigi Cozzi stars British beauty Caroline Munro, former child preacher Marjoe Gortner, Joe Spinell and a young David Hasselhoff. All this plus Southern robots, skimpy outfits and lots of bad haircuts.

Then, things get darker as we delve into director Lucky McKee's latest effort The Woman from 2011. Based on the novel by Jack Ketchum, this film tells the tale of a well-to-do lawyer who captures a feral woman while out hunting and brings her back to his ranch where he keeps her captive and attempts to civilize her, all with begrudging help of his family (including his wife played by McKee favorite Angela Bettis).

And finally, we see what happens when a mysterious TV unleashes a slew of zombies on an unsuspecting brother and sister as they attempt to get settled in their new house, in the 1987 VHS favorite The Video Dead.

  1. Hey guys, just found your podcast. Wanted to say that I think what you are doing is awesome. I can't wait to go back a few episodes and hear your thoughts on the film that freaked me out the most when I was a kid, Mr. Boogedy.
