JFD111: Killer Klowns from Outer Space, The Clown Murders, Clownhouse

What's creepier than clowns? Nothing, right? Their weird painted faces, yellow teeth and dead eye stares ...shudder... Well, this week we face our fears head on and dissect the Good, the Bad and the Ugly of creepy-ass clown movies.

The Good: Killer Klowns from Outer Space from 1988 starring Grant Cramer (Hardbodies), Suzanne Snyder (Return of the Living Dead part 2) and Junk Food Dinner's favorite asshole authority figure John Vernon (Animal House, Savage Streets) about a small town that is terrorized by a group of extra terrestrial clowns. This fun and colorful cult classic is directed by Stephen Chiodo and features memorable make-up effects from the Chiodo Brothers (Critters, Ernest Scared Stupid).

The Bad: The Clown Murders from 1976 starring a very young John Candy. This misleading Canadian kidnapping movie directed by Martyn Burke (Top Secret!) has little to do with clowns and certainly isn't scary. Unless, you count the John Candy sex scene, which is utterly horrifying.

The Ugly: Clownhouse from 1989 starring Sam Rockwell (Moon, Iron Man), Nathan Forrest Winters and a guy named Tree. This horror flick tells the tale of three brothers stalked by a gang of escaped mental patients dressed as clowns. The film was made infamous by virtue of the fact that the director Victor Salva (Powder, Jeepers Creepers) was arrested for sexually abusing the young lead actor, Winters. That information mixed with the film's creepy pedophilic undertones makes this a difficult one to watch.

All this plus witty banter between friends, glitchy Skype noise, soundboard antics, The Dickies, Junk Mail, DVD & Blu-ray releases, Nerd News and so much more!

JFD110: Demolition University, Bloodsuckers from Outer Space, Killer Workout

Junk Food Dinner Assemble!!

First up this week, Corey Haim returns as tough Bronx youth Lenny Slater in 1999's "Demolition University." Once again, Slater must stop terrorists from destroying his school. Robert Forster and Ami Dolenz costar.

Then, a small Texas town becomes ground zero for mindless zombies in "Bloodsuckers from Outer Space" from 1984. This horror/sci fi/comedy is an homage/spoof of low budget 50s flicks.

Finally, a slasher is stalking a fitness gym in 1987's "Killer Workout (aka Aerobicide.)" David A. Prior writes and directs this horror/action hybrid.

Workin' on our Night Claws

Check it! A post that isn't just an episode of the show! Sorry for that, we're very lazy. But I'm not so lazy that I could simply not share this gem. On the next episode of JFD (which will be up later today or tomorrow morning), we'll be talking about David Prior's '80s slasher, "Killer Workout." Prior's current project is "Night Claws," a horror flick about a Bigfeetsman that kills a bunch of teens and campers and stuff. This seems pretty notable due to its lack of CGI in favor of a dude in a sweet Bigfoot suit and Reb Brown (of "Space Mutiny," "The Howling 2" and (The Crappy) "Captain America") as the town's sheriff or something. The movie's apparently wrapped and done and is just looking for distribution. Here's hoping they find it soon!

JFD109: Olum Savascisi, Demolition High, Dr. Alien

Better late than never, JUNK FOOD DINNER 109 is here! This week is a real smorgasborg of crazyness as we take a look at 3 films spanning time...AND SPACE!

Up first, we take a look at a film from Turkey (by way of a cool custom DVD from listener Joe, in Sweden) - 1984's OLUM SAVASCISI. Ninjas, melty mummies, kicking, arrows, and more from the king of Turkish cinema Cuneyt Arkin!

Next, it's more Wynorski nuttiness as terrorists take over an unassuming high school. Too bad for them, Corey Haim has detention slips for everyone - PERMANENT DETENTION! Alan Thicke also stars as a totally unbelievable cop. Drill-saws abound in the very 90's DEMOLITION HIGH!

Finally, we blast off on one of our sexiest adventures yet. This doctor makes more than house calls, etc. A bevy of cult babes pepper this curious sci-fi romp - DR. ALIEN!

JFD108: The Party Animal, Hellgate, Boardinghouse

Get ready to party, because another beer-soaked episode of Junk Food Dinner is upon us.

This week the fellas go back to college with Pondo Sinatra, an unattractive, unlikable rube who's dead set on getting laid. Despite a series of whacky misadventures, Pondo still remains a virgin. That is, until a chemical reaction turns him in a sexual dynamo, in the 1985 sex comedy The Party Animal directed by David Beaird and starring Matthew Causey and Timothy Carhart.

Then, we take a trip to a remote town out west with Horshack from Welcome Back, Kotter (Ron Palillo) and his goofy friends as they try to unravel the secrets of a decades old murder and a sexy ghost with fake tits in the 1990 horror flick Hellgate directed by William A. Levey.

And finally, an eccentric homeowner with telekinetic powers (John Wintergate, who also wrote and directed the film) puts an ad in the paper luring attractive young women to move in with him. But between parties and dips in the hot tub, the women begin dying off in one of the first shot-on-video horror films, Boardinghouse from 1982.

All this plus witty banter between friends, glitchy Skype noise, soundboard antics, punk rock, Junk Mail, DVD & Blu-ray releases, Nerd News and so much more!

JFD107: Rock and Roll Nightmare, Rocktober Blood, Slumber Party Massacre II

This week, we put on our spandex aerobics gear and tease our hair as we check out three '80s heavy metal horror flicks. First up, a band called The Tritons check into a creepy old house to record an album in 1987's "Rock & Roll Nightmare." The film, written by and starring John Mikl Thor, has one of the craziest endings in JFD history.

Next, a killer returns from the grave (?) to kill off his former bandmates in "Rocktober Blood" from 1984. This film is chock-full of Sebastions and Rainbow Eyes.

Finally, we catch back up with some old friends in 1987's "Slumber Party Massacre 2." The killer from the first flick is back and he's haunting dreams and playing rockabilly music this time!

All this plus witty banter between friends, glitchy Skype noise, fussing, fighting, carrying on, soundboard antics, Junk Mail, DVD & Blu-ray releases, Nerd News and so much more!
