JFD133: Halloween 2, The Day After Halloween, Night of the Demons

Schlocktober culminates in a big, bloody mess of hot Halloween-themed movies!

First, Michael Myers returns in the sequel to the genre-defining classic "Halloween 2," from 1981, starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Dick Warlock (lol!). John Carpenter steps down from directing to co-write this follow-up that takes place immediately after the end of the original.

Next, a young Australian model gets more than she asks for in "The Day after Halloween" aka "Snapshot" from 1979. This movie has nothing to do with Halloween!

Finally, a trick or treat party turns ugly in 1988's "Night of the Demons" starring Linnea Quigley (Return of the Living Dead), directed by Kevin Tenny (Demolition University).

Direct Donloyd Here!

The audio's a little wacky in parts, but hey, we recorded during a goddamn hurricane, man.

JFD132: The Howling, An American Werewolf in Paris, Silver Bullet

Aawhooooooo! It's the fourth week of Schlocktober and this week the boys are joined by special guest host Katie Rots from the excellent Rotten Rantings podcast to howl at the moon and discuss three unique werewolf films.

Up first, under appreciated scream queen Dee Wallace plays Karen White, a reporter who, after a traumatizing encounter with a local serial killer is sent to new age rehabilitation retreat with her husband to help get over the event. But soon it is discovered that the serial killer and the folks at the retreat are not what they seem as things take a wolfish turn in the 1981 horror film The Howling, directed by Joe Dante.

Then, Andy McDermott (Tom Everett Scott) and his two daredevil buddies (Vince Vieluf and Phil Buckman) are vacationing in Paris. But after Andy saves a young woman's life (Julie Delpy) and subsequently falls in love with her, the Americans are sucked into an underground cult of werewolves, in the much-lauded 1997 follow-up to An American Werewolf in London, An American Werewolf in Paris.

And finally, Gary Busey plays drunken uncle to a wheelchair-bound Corey Haim. Life is good in their small town until people start dying mysteriously left and right. The Haimster discovers not only who the murderer is, but also his wolfen secret, it's up to him and his uncle to bring an end to the carnage in 1985's Silver Bullet.

All this plus witty banter between friends, soundboard antics, dead softcore porn stars, Junk (voice)Mails, DVD & Blu-ray releases, Nerd News and so much more!

JFD131: Black Devil Doll from Hell, Child's Play 2, Dolls

As SHLOCKTOBER 3 builds with terrifying voracity we're only a matter of weeks away from the best holiday. This week, though, we're talking killer dolls and it's quite a lineup.

Up first we have a DEVIL of a time cracking wise about Chester N. Turner's first feature (in a career of two) about a Jesus freak who yearns to freak in a different way. It's 7 minutes of credits, followed by 63 minutes of the steamiest puppet sex this side of Tuesday in 1984's - BLACK DEVIL DOLL FROM HELL!

Next, Chucky's back! Now with more terrifying facial expressions, wittier banter, and hostage negotiations! Andy's there, too but who cares when you have all this amazing, cutting edge animatronic work and iconic voice acting to soak up! CHILD'S PLAY 2 from 1990!

Finally, Stuart Gordon and Brian Yuzna team up in what could be described as a practice run for the entire PUPPET MASTER series. Six people end up at the home of some reeeeeeeeeeeal creepy toy makers and some reeeeeeeeeeeeeal terrible stuff happens in DOLLS!

Direct DOLLload Here.

All this plus witty banter between friends, dead eyes and tiny hands, less glitchy Skype noise, soundboard antics, Junk Mail, discussions of where you should and shouldn't put hot meals, DVD & Blu-ray releases, Nerd News and so much more!

JFD130: Gothic, Frankenstein Conquers the World, Frankenhooker

Schlocktober continues with a trio of films about a kind of monster that can only be described as "so sick."

First, director Ken Russell tells the story of the horrors that lead Mary Shelley to write the original "Frankenstein" book in "Gothic" from 1986. This crazy hallucinogen of a film features an all-star cast (featuring Julian Sands!) living out their nightmares at a party in a secluded mansion.

Next,atomic radiation causes the creature to grow to epic sizes in 1965's Kaiju flick "Frankenstein Conquers the World." Frankenstein's monster is being studies by Japanese scientists and breaks free to combat other huge monsters that may or may have back-stories of their own.

Finally, after her death, a scientist aims to resurrect his fiancé using prostitute parts in 1990's cult classic "Frankenhooker." Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case, Brain Damage) writes and directs this hilariously violent and erotic take on the Frankenstein story.

Trailers that are relevant to Parker's interests and/or life!

A few trailers came out this week that are really geared for me, Parker. The first I wanna show you is entitled "Parker." We talked about this movie on the show a while back in its embryo phase, I think, and it tickled me pink. It concerns a man named Parker played by international tough guy Jason Statham and part of it was filmed in my home state of Ohio, so clearly it's loosely based on my life.

Anyway, this looks like some ol' usual Jason Statham stuff, which is to say: awesome. Clifton Collins (Rules of Attraction, The Stoned Age) is apparently in it too, which is awesome cuz he rules and the trailer teases a that we may see Jennifer Lopez's butt, which is the best part of Jennifer Lopez, so everything seems to be adding up nicely here.

In other (probably better) trailer news, the new Bret Easton Ellis creation "The Canyons," has a trailer. This flick is going straight to Netflix because that's how things will be in the future and it seems cool. If you didn't learn it from our Bret Easton Ellis theme show, I fucking love everything this dude does*, so I'm totally into this. Admittedly, the casting of Lindsey Lohan seems more like a cry for attention than anything else, but what are you gonna do? Here's the (super cool) trailer:

*Except some of "The Informers."

JFD129: Vamp, Stake Land, Interview with the Vampire

Well, it's everyone's favorite time of year again, kids; Schlocktober! That magical month where we here at JFD, prepare for Halloween with theme shows each week dedicated to classic horror genres and we kick things off with a staple of Schlocktober, our VAMPIRE theme show.

The first bloodsucking flick on the docket this evening is Vamp from 1986. This surprising horror comedy starring Chris Makepeace (Meatballs), Robert Rusler (Weird Science) and Gedde Watanabe (UHF) is often mistaken for an art flick thanks to the VHS and DVD cover featuring a painted vampire Grace Jones.

Next, we find ourselves in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, where an outbreak is turning people into vampires (not zombies!). Luckily for young Martin (Connor Paolo), badass vampire slayer Mister (Nick Damici) is there to help him navigate through the crumbling landscape. Kelly McGillis (Top Gun) and Danielle Harris (Halloween, Hatchet) round out the cast in Stake Land from 2011.

 And finally, things get sexy as we revisit the seminal 1994 gothic drama Interview with the Vampire. With a cast full of hunks (Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Antonio Banderas, Christian Slater) and a pint-sized Kirsten Dunst, we debate whether this acclaimed and influential vampire flick, based on the novel by Anne Rice, still holds up and if straight men can actually enjoy it.

All this plus witty banter between friends, soundboard antics, emo songs with Parker's name in them, Junk Mail, DVD & Blu-ray releases, Nerd News and so much more!
