JFD166: Punk Rock Eats Its Own, The Worst Witch, Wild at Heart


The Randomizer 5000 picked our movies this week. Whether we like it or not.

First, Punk Rock Eats its Own: A Film About Face to Face. We chat about this 2006 documentary charts the career of the So-Cal punk band that made their name during the '90s punk explosion.

Next, baby Fairuza Balk stars in the made-for-tv nostalgia trip "The Worst Witch" from 1986. You probably know about this movie either from childhood or from Tim Curry signing a dumb song about dogs turning into cats.

Finally, we look at David Lynch's acclaimed 1990 surreal road trip flick "Wild at Heart." Nic Cage and Laura Dern star as two young lovers, running away from their parents and the law while running into various skeezy weirdos.

JFD165: Summer Camp Theme Show!
Nudist Colony of the Dead, Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers, Gorp


Break out the marshmallows, take off your tube top, and get ready to scream your way through Junk Food Dinner's second annual Summer Camp Theme Show! This week, we explore three very different summer camp experiences that leave us mosquito-bitten, poison-ivied, sun-burned, and tank-trampled.

First up, a hoary hoard of horny whores commit ritualistic suicide and vow to return from the dead to torment the Christian zealots who shut down their beloved Sunny Buttocks Nudist Colony in 1991's Nudist Colony of the Dead! This low-budget musical-comedy-horror from Mark Pirro (Polish Vampire in Burbank, Deathrow Gameshow) foreshadows several elements we'd see later in Cannibal: The Musical. Witness quality musical numbers such as "Kill Kill Kill All the Zealots", "Zombie Rap", and "It's an Inky Dinky Doo Dah Morning". Forrest J. Ackerman has a cameo as Judge Rhinehole.

Next, we travel to Camp Rolling Hills, just 60 miles shy of the infamous Camp Arawak, where Angela killed so many campers not long ago. She returns to kill the naughty campers in 1988's Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers, but this time the horror elements have been replaced with comedic satire. Will any of the campers escape the righteously evil Angela? We'll spoil it for you!

Finally, we head down to Camp Oskemo, a Jewish summer camp in the Catskills region, where shouting very loud is a popular pastime. There are barnyard animals, silly faces, the world's weirdest kid, and tanks crashing through walls. It's chaotic and crazy and Mr. Sumatra from Shrunken Heads is in it. This is the wacky world of Gorp.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, this week's DVD & blu-ray releases, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, kickstarters galore, weird redheaded kids, Forrest J. Ackerman, Junk (voice)Mails, and so much more!

JFD164: Manborg, Southern Comfort, Birdemic 2: The Resurrection


It's a doozy of a week here at Junk Food Dinner. First, we fire up the old Randomizer 5000, and load it up with dozens of strange, off-beat and just plain bad flicks and see what three it spits out for us to watch on an upcoming episode. What movies did the Randomizer deal us? Tune in to find out!

Then we get into our movies this week, and it only gets crazier.

Up first, we take a look at the post-apocalyptic, sci-fi, action movie Manborg from 2011. This stylized low-budget flick from the Astron 6 crew is about a soldier (Matthew Kennedy from Father's Day) who is killed while fighting against the army from Hell (literally) but is brought back to life as half man, half cyborg. But life on Earth hasn't gotten much better, as he and a group of rogue misfits must battle robots, demons and finally the evil Count Draculon. Shot almost entirely in front of green screens and for the ridiculously small budget of $1,000, this goofy film directed by young filmmaker Steven Kostanski is a model for sci-fi efficiency.

Then, in Southern Comfort from 1981, a group of soldiers in the Louisiana National Guard, including Keith Carradine, Powers Boothe, Fred Ward and T.K. Carter, find themselves in actual combat after stealing some canoes from a group of rustic Cajuns. Things escalate quickly as the men are forced to fight for their lives and try to navigate their way our of the dense Louisiana swamp in this gritty "war" drama directed by Walter Hill.

And finally, the movie so... uh... "nice", they mad it twice. Yes, that's right, those shitty CGI birds are back in Birdemic 2: The Resurrection from 2013. Once again, director James Nguyen reunites all your favorite good looking (but bad acting) characters to do battle with killer birds and preach to you about the importance of living a green lifestyle. Lovers of bad cinema rejoice!

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, this week's DVD & blu-ray releases, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, the Randomizer ,catastrophe, Donald Lloyd of the Junk Food Dinner Warehouse, Junk (voice)Mails, and so much more!

It's Time.

Time for Junk Food Dinner to decide their 500th movie. And, of course, by "Junk Food Dinner," we mean "The JFD Listeners."

Past shows include Transformers: The Movie, The Warriors, C.H.U.D., and Howard the Duck. (We still don't forgive you for that one, by the way.

Anyway, we've got a devilish group for you to pick this time around. Just use the pool box in the top left of the page. The episode will be coming at ya the last week of July. CHOOSE WISELY!

JFD163: Dan Kinem Interview,
Darkest Soul, The Wild Life, Homebodies

This week, we celebrate the VHS format with guest Dan Kinem, co-director of "Adjust Your Tracking: The Untold Story of the VHS Collector." We talk to Dan about VHS collecting, the documentary, his recent treasure hunts and tons more. Then we review three movies that have never made it to DVD.

Then, two losers resort to grave robbing, which sends them on a downward spiral of immorality in the Shot-On-Video flick, "Darkest Soul." Writer/Director Doug Ulrich blends genres in this 1996 Baltimore movie.

Next, a group of kids make the transition into adulthood in 1984's "The Wild Life," written by Cameron Crowe. The flick features a cast that would grow up to be stars including Chris Penn, Eric Stolz, Lea Thompson and Rick Moranis. The movie harkens back to "Fast Times" but with more of a sex-comedy feel.

Finally, facing eviction, a bunch elderly folks take a stand in 1974's "Homebodies." A comedy/drama/horror flick filmed in Kevin's hometown of Cincinnati. (He's very proud of Pete Rose.)
