JFD102: UHF, Chopping Mall, Big Trouble in Little China

Greetings, sleaze junkies and trash aficionados. Welcome to yet another hilarious installment of your favorite cult movie podcast.

It's a big one too, as this week we celebrate our TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY! And what better way to ring in the terrible twos than to recall our top 5 and bottom 5 movies of the last year of JFD and then serve up three of our all-time favorite 80's cult classics!

Up first, we reminisce and crack up over the utterly brilliant, utterly bizarre, utterly hilarious "Weird Al" Yankovic vehicle UHF from 1989. Al and a cast of colorful characters (Victoria Jackson, Kevin McCarthy, Michael Richards, Fran Drescher, etc, etc) bring an endless barrage of off-the-wall jokes that will split your sides, whether you're 13 or 30.

Then, when a group of teenage mall employees decide to party at the mall after hours, they quickly realize that the new robotic security system isn't fucking around, in the 1986 horror comedy Chopping Mall, directed by Jim Wynorski and starring Kelli Maroney and Tony O'Dell with cameos by Paul Bartel, Mary Woronov and Dick Miller.

And finally, Kurt Russell and John Carpenter team up yet again for a fast-paced, mystical martial arts adventure in the seedy underbelly of China Town, featuring black magic, strange creatures and endless chase scenes in Big Trouble in Little China, also from 1986.

All this plus witty banter between friends, glitchy Skype noise, Hüsker Dü jams, soundboard antics, gushing, Junk Mail, the announcement of our 300th movie and so much more!

JFD101: Total Recall, House by the Cemetery, Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers


Start the reactor, Quaid, cuz JFD101 is here!

First up, we discuss one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time, 1990's "Totall Recall." Directed by Paul Verhoeven, the film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a normal Joe who longs for adventure and excitement via a Martian vacation. But, is he really a secret agent destined to save the Red Planet?

Next up, a kid named Bob and his family move into a creepy old New England house only to discover that it's haunted by creature that needs to murder to survive in Lucio Fulci's "House by the Cemetery" from 1981.

Finally, a film-noir detective stumbles upon a violent cult of "Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers." Fred Olen Ray directs this 1988 flick starring Linnea Quigley and Gunnar Hansen.

JFD100: Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, Return to Frogtown, Street Trash

Holy shit! Can you believe it? We finally mad it to our 100th episode! And to celebrate, we're reaching deep into the vault and pulling out some of our cult favorites for our centennial podcast.

Up first, we get an eyeful of retro cars, knife fights, karate chops and giant breasts when we ogle the often imitated, classic and stylish 1965 Russ Meyer exploitation flick Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! starring 60's sexpots Tura Satana, Haji and Lori Williams.

Then, we hop into the sequel of a film we talked about all the way back on the very first episode of Junk Food Dinner, Frogtown II from 1992. This follow up to Hell Comes to Frogtown picks up right where it's predecessor leaves off, only this time trading Roddy Piper for Robert Z'Dar as our protagonist Sam Hell battling an army of mutant frog soldiers in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

And finally, we slum it with a cartoonish group of New York homeless folks who find themselves melting into brightly colored gunk after drinking bottles of cheap liquor that have been sitting in storage for years when we get splattered by Street Trash from 1987, directed by J. Michael Muro and written by Roy Frumkes.

JFD99: The Sleeper, The Stupids, Slumber Party Massacre


It's our 100th Episode Eve, and we've got a real doozy of a show before we enter triple digits!

Up first, we're joined by writer/director Justin Russell as we discuss his new film THE SLEEPER. It's 1981 and the girls of Alpha Gamma Theta are getting ready for rush week! Logically, it's time to party! But an uninvited guest is about to significantly reduce the RSVP list. It's another round of Ohio horror in this loving homage to the great American slasher film.

Second, Tom Arnold is an idiot and so is his family as a series of wacky events leads to them accidentally saving the world. A star-studded cast and misplaced musical number round out this mid-90's John Landis film - THE STUPIDS!

Finally, it's back to Slashertown! Tawdry high school girls exclude their nerdy classmate/neighbor while they talk about fornicating and smoke Maui Wowie. Sadly, for them there's a maniac wielding a GIGANTIC drill with a bloodlust that cannot be satisfied. A staple of video store shelves and a classic of the genre - SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE from 1982!

No Nerd News/DVDs this week, but don't worry - they'll be back.

Let the voting games commence!!

Hey, Junkies! It's that time again! We're closing in on our 300th movie watched. By our calculations, episode 103 will feature that aforementioned 300th flick, and just like we did with movies 100 and 200, we'll be doing an audio commentary of a cult favorite to celebrate. In the past we endured"Howard the Duck," and "C.H.U.D.". And, like in the past, we're letting the listeners pick which movie we do the commentary for. We're stacking the deck this time, though, so that we don't get stuck watching duck tits or a monster movie with no monsters in it.

So, here are your choices, vote by going to the left to the votey sidebar widget! You have until we record JFD102 to vote!

JFD98: Deadly Spawn, Evangelion 1.0, The Fly


JFD's 98th episode will crank things up to 98 degrees!

First up, we're joined by director Douglas McKeown to discuss his 1983 film "Deadly Spawn." We discuss the film's humble beginnings to its new life in a post-AOL world as a cult favorite. The film itself is an homage to 50s horror, as a deadly (and hungry) life form from space lands in the basement of a home and starts snacking on the inhabitants.

Next up, we take a look at what's regarded by many as the greatest giant-robot anime tale of all time in "Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone." The film is a 2007 reboot of the classic show from the '90s about young Shinji Ikari's mission to protect the world from rampaging angels.

Finally, we discuss one of the best creature features of all time, David Cronenberg's 1986 version of "The Fly." The story follows Jeff Goldblum as a scientist who accidentally fuses his DNA with an insect's, transforming him into a half man, half fly creature.
