JFD185: Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers


Happy Halloween, Junk Food Junkies! As Shlocktober draws to and end, we celebrate with not one, not two but three Halloween flicks!

Up first, Michael Myers returns to Haddonfield to finally rid the world of his bloodline by going after his 8-year-old niece Jamie (Danielle Harris) and those around her. Of course, Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) returns as well to try and stop The Boogieman before he can get to Jamie in  Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers from 1988.

Then, wouldn't ya know it, Michael Myers is back picking off fools one by one and forming a telepathic bond with his niece Jamie, who is now a mute confined to a children's mental hospital. And once again, it's up to Dr. Loomis and some bumbling cops to try to put an end to the murders in 1989's  Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers.

Finally, a young Paul Rudd,  the distant relatives of the Strode family and Dr. Loomis uncover the sinister origins of Michael Myers and try to protect Jamie's newborn baby as once again The Shape returns to ruin Haddonfield's Halloween fun in Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers from 1995.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Halloween Nerd News, this week's DVD + blu-ray releases, Matthew Sweetman, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, Lou Reed, voicemail marathons, cookie women, and so much more!

JFD184: Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky, Curse of Chucky


Schlocktober keeps on rocking through October as we dig into the last three movies in the Child's Play series!


First up, we check out Ronny Yu's foray into Hollywood filmmaking, the visually impressive road movie horror comedy BRIDE OF CHUCKY from 1998! Brad Dourif returns as the voice of Chucky, joined by Jennifer Tilly and a young/foxy/pre-lady-doctors Katherine Heigl.

Violins are bad, but Glen (or Glenda?) is good, in 2004's bizarre Hollywood spoof comedy SEED OF CHUCKY. Featuring the acting talents of Redman and a small role for John Waters, this is not only the weirdest Chucky movie, it's one of the weirdest franchise horror movies ever. But is weird good?

Finally, we spoil the shit out of CURSE OF CHUCKY from 2013! Don't say we didn't warn you, you weird person who cares about spoilers for Curse of Chucky. This is the latest (but apparently not last) entry into the Child's Play series, and features a return to the horror roots of the series.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Cats in Birthday Hats, Skype-y Sean, Podcat Bro (kinda), Randomizer 5000, Bubble Baths, 13 Year Old Juggalos, and so much more!

JFD's November Schedule! AKA Me-vember

Hey, Junkies! We're still knee-deep in Schlocktober, enjoying all the perks and pleasures of ghouldom. But, we're also looking to the future. And the future is November. We're doing something new this month, with the potential for heated conversations. Each one of us is getting our own week to pick a theme and we're picking all three movies that week ourselves. Maybe it's a theme that represents the movies we dig most. Maybe it's just a cool theme we're into. Maybe we're celebrating our favorite actors or Cranksgiving holidays. Maybe it's all of those. Since there are 4 weeks in November and only three of us, the Randomizer is also getting to pick its perfect show, which is sure to enrage us all.

JFD183: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1, 2 & 3

Shlocktober continues this week and we have three movies that lead to one of the most bizarre podcasts in the annals of American history. It's our Texas Chainsaw Massacre theme show.

First, a group of kids stumble on a farmhouse full of cannibal rednecks in Tobe Hooper's 1974 ground-breaking "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre." We're introduced to the iconic Leatherface and the rest of the crazed clan in this gruesome satirical horror flick.

Next, the crazed meat-eating family returns in 1986's "Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2." Made 12 years after the original, Cannon convinced Hooper to return to the franchise with this absurd black comedy featuring Dennis Hopper and Bill Mosely.

Finally, Viggo Mortensen and Ken Foree star in a new age of sadistic cannablism in "Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3" from 1990. Without Tobe Hooper involved, New Line gobbled up the franchise for this sequel... uh, reboot.... or something.

All this plus witty banter between friends, extremely clean Skype qualities, Machete Bombs, this week's DVD + blu-ray releases, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, the musings of a Sweet Man, a saw introduced in the first act not used in the third, bones, and so much more!

JFD182: Friday the 13th: Parts 1, 2 & 3

It's time to put on your hockey mask and grab your machete! We're going back to camp!

First, some morons get the idea to re-open Camp Crystal Lake, despite the locals' warning that it has a death curse and that they're all doomed. Sure enough, a mysterious stalker soons starts slicing everyone up in Sean Cunningham's original "Friday the 13th" from 1980.

Next, it's five years later and new camp counselors ignore the death curse and party it up at Crystal Lake. Soon enough, a new killer is looking for revenge in "Friday the 13th: Part 2" from 1981.

Finally, Jason returns to kill again ... this time in 3D! in Steve Miner's "Friday the 13th: Part 3."

All this plus witty banter between friends, extremely clean Skype qualities, Jason News, this week's DVD + blu-ray releases, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, the musings of a Sweet Man, no suspects, very few red herrings, and so much more!

JFD181: A Nightmare on Elm Street, A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors


Our annual tradition of Schlocktober has returned, and it kicks off this week with a Freddy fanatic's dream show, as we dive into the first three movies in the legendary A Nightmare on Elm Street series!


We start, of course, where it all began with 1984's A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET! Directed by Wes Craven, this landmark slasher introduced horror fans the world over to the man of their dreams, Freddy Krueger. Imaginative death sequence set pieces, a fantastic performance by Robert Englund, and surreal nightmare sequences are remembered fondly, but can the curse of silly endings and hammy acting ruin our nostalgia? The only way to know is to listen, and the only way to listen is with your ears.

Next, we take a closer look at the least fondly remembered of all the Nightmare sequels, 1985's A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET PART 2: FREDDY'S REVENGE. Oddly pervasive homoeroticism combine with a different take on the Freddy mythos that is more possession-based than nightmare-based, this entry sticks out like a sore thumb, and not only for its day-glo neon visuals. We try to decipher the meaning of the exploding parakeet in one of this film's more memorable sequences, and in the process, we learn a thing or two about ourselves.

The first week of Schlocktober comes to and end with our examination of 1987's A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3: DREAM WARRIORS! When troubled teen Kristen Parker (Patricia Arquette) is sent to a psychiatric hospital for youths, she is surprised to find the other kids are experiencing the same dreams of Freddy Krueger. She's even more surprised to discover that new hospital staff member Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) knows the dark secret behind their dreams. We delight in all of the kid-bonding and suicide-influenced imaginatively-gory kill sequences as the kids bond together to become the Dream Warriors! Oh, and did we mention that this is a Craig Wasson Jam?

All this plus witty banter between friends, extremely clean Skype qualities, Freddy News, this week's DVD + blu-ray releases, tennis balls aplenty, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, the musings of a Sweet Man, voicemail manhood, Clu Gulager, and so much more!
