JFD114: The Boneyard, Microwave Massacre, Psycho Beach Party
Mutant poodles, cannibalism, cops in drag... this episode of Junk Food Dinner really has it all!
Up first, we take a trip to the mortuary with boring cop Ed Nelson (A Bucket of Blood) and homely psychic Deborah Rose (Ski Patrol). Besides being inhabited by over-the-hill TV stars (Phyllis Diller, Norman Fell), the mortuary is also home to some of the creepiest demons and goofiest mutants ever committed to VHS, in the 1991 straight-to-video horror flick The Boneyard.
Then, the campy VHS fun continues as we take a glimpse into the life of Donald, played by old-time comedian Jackie Vernon (Frosty the Snowman), whose wife cooks him horrible meals in their over-sized microwave until he cooks her in the 1983 horror/comedy Microwave Massacre.
And finally, Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under, Can't Hardly Wait) plays Chicklet, a naive girl with multiple personalities who just wants to be accepted by the cool surf kids (Thomas Gibson, Nicholas Brendon), all while dead bodies keep poppin' up in the 2000 60's beach movie spoof Psycho Beach Party, based on the play by Charles Busch.
All this plus witty banter between friends, glitchy Skype noise, soundboard antics, stories about goth crushes, Junk Mail, DVD & Blu-ray releases, Nerd News and so much more!
