JFD180: Bring me the Head of Alfredo Garcia, Test Tube Teens from the Year 2000, The Oogieloves

It's a doozy of a week, as this episode features what is probably the three most different movies the world has ever known.

First, a bartender's on a road trip to collect a bounty on a severed head in Sam Peckinpah's "Bring me the Head of Alfredo Garcia" from 1974. This flick was hated by audiences and critics at the time of its release, but has gained ground as a cult classic.

Next, in a dystopian future, sex has been outlawed and two dudes travel back to 1994 to save Earth in "Test Tube Teens from the Year 2000" (AKA "Virgin Hunters"). Director David De Coteau brings this soft core sci fi as the debut film from Full Moon's "Torchlight" imprint.

Finally, puppet creatures throw a birthday party for their pillow in the 2012 kids flick "The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure." Despite hot stars like Christopher Lloyd and Cloris Leachman, this movie broke the record for biggest financial bomb in history.

Schlocktober IV: The SchlockMaster

Hey, Junkies!! It's that time of year again! Our annual Schlocktober is upon us! If you're not familar with what we do for October, it's pretty intense. Much like Shock & Awegust and Sci-Fi Ebruary, we dedicate a whole month to one genre (horror) and each week is dedicated to a different movie monster theme show. We're doing things a little different this year, though. If you wanna look at/catch up on past Schlocktobers, you can. Schlocktober III was made up of episodes JFD129-JFD133. Then, JFD79-JFD82 made up Shlocktober II JFD28-JFD32 made up the original Schlocktober.

In the past, we've done "Vampire Week" or "Zombie Week," but this year, we're dedicating our weeks to more specific movie monsters. Slashy movie monsters. Some would say the best movie monsters.

JFD179: Los Bastardos, Mr. Vampire, Remote Control


Strap in, Junk Food Junkies because JFD is back with another mind-warping episode chock full of murder, vampires and VHS tapes.

Up first, Amat Escalante takes us on an ultra-realistic ride through a day-in-the-life of two Mexican day laborers who are hired to torment a suburban woman in 2008's Los Bastardos starring Jesus Moises Rodriguez, Rubén Sosa and Nina Zavarin.

Then,Ching-Ying Lam plays a Chinese necromancer who is called upon to exhume the body of a local millionaire. But when the body rises from the grave as a vampire, it's up to Lam and his lackies, played by Siu-hou Chin and Ricky Hui to use their knowledge and cunning to take on the vampires (as well as bumbling cops and sexy female ghosts) in the 1985 Hong Kong horror comedy Mr. Vampire.

Finally, Kevin Dillon plays cosmos, a teenage video store clerk who uncovers a sinister alien plot to take over the world through a cheesy 50's sci-fi flick on VHS. He and his pals Deborah Goodrich, Christopher Wynne and a young Jennifer Tilly must take on an evil conspiracy and destroy all the tapes they can in Jeff Lieberman's Remote Control from 1988.

***Our apologies, as Kevin sounds very Freado-esque during this recording***

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, this week's DVD & blu-ray releases, Skype noise, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, a chance to win a Parker doll, Dr. Who smack talk and much more.

JFD178: Blood Diner, The Canyons, Perfect Blue!


Our weird September continues with a trio of flicks that have pretty much nothing in common with each other, except that we had to watch them, and now you'll have to hear us talk about them!

First on the show is BLOOD DINER from 1987! Directed by Jackie Kong, this horror comedy is an homage to the classic HG Lewis Blood Feast, but also much more. It features one of the finest deep-fried-topless-girl-head-decapation scenes in all of cinema, we're sure you'll agree.

Next, we head to the Hollywood Hills with Lindsay Lohan and a gaggle of porn dudes for 2013's THE CANYONS. Funded by Kickstarter, this is writer Bret Easton Ellis and director Paul Schrader's film that is about something. Yeah, something. It has some boobs.

We close out this week's episode with a rare JFD foray into anime territory with 1997's PERFECT BLUE! This psychological thriller from animation legend Satoshi Kon uses hyper-detailed artwork to convey a Brian DePalma-esque story of insanity, sexuality, and violence.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, this week's DVD + blu-ray releases, Foot Locker logos, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, Lohan Boobs, voicemail marathons, the VHS section of Amoeba Music Hollywood, and so much more!

JFD177: Ms. 45, Repo Man, Fast Food

This week, we're joined by our podcat bros, The Badland Girls!!

Rhea and Destiny bring us a tale of vigilantism and revenge on the male species in Abel Ferrara's "Ms. 45." In this 1981 flick, Thana is a girl in New York who has a bad day when she's assaulted and raped. But this leads her to indiscriminately start killing off anyone she sees with a penis. And maybe dogs, too.

Next, Emelio Estevez is an angry young punk in LA who gets a job repossessing cars in 1984's classic "Repo Man." Directed by Alex Cox and co-starring Harry Dean Stanton, this is a tale of aliens, consumerism and The Circle Jerks.

Finally, two college slackers steal their friend's hamburger stand and develop a sauce that makes their customers horny in 1989's "Fast Food." This comedy was directed by Michael A. Simpson ("Sleepaway Camp" 2 & 3) and stars Jim Varney ("Ernest"), Traci Lords ("Crybaby"), Kevin McCarthy ("UHF") and Michael J. Pollard & Pamela Springsteen from the Sleepaway Camp movies. It's a real who's who of JFD classics.

All this, DVDS, Nerd News, LA punk bands, pornos that will make you horny, and so much more.
