JFD214: Evilspeak, Bloody Birthday, Visiting Hours


Summer's officially here kids, so Junk Food Dinner getting the time machine out of the garage, firing it up and traveling back to that distant time, the early 80's, to raid the local video store's horror shelf. But we're not on this adventure alone. No, this week we are joined by none other than Mike Dikk from the world-famous Kissing Contest Podcast.

Up first, Clint Howard summons the Dark Lord himself via some ancient text and an ancient computer in order to get the power he needs to exact revenge on the bullies and teachers who are making his life a living hell (get it) in Evilspeak from 1981.

Then, three 10-year-old kids who share a birthday turn murderous due to an eclipse on the night they were born. These vicious tykes (including the lovable scamp Billy Jacoby) get real raw as they pick of family members and neighbors in 1981's Bloody Birthday.

 And finally, Michael Ironside is a racist,misogynist psychopath who doesn't take too kindly to female reporter Lee Grant's progressive views. But when his first attempt at bumping her off fails, he begins to terrorize the hospital where she's a patient. Also William Shatner pops in and out for no reason in 1982's Visiting Hours.

All this plus witty banter between friends, requests to keep up the good work, stories about crying, Nerd News, Blu-rays, vintage 7-Up cans and so much more!

JFD213: Gojira, Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster, Godzilla (2014)


Oh, no! There goes Tokyo! This week JFD goes Godzilla!

First up, we meet up with the grand-daddy of them all, the original King of the Kaiju, 1954’s Gorjia! Black and white, moody, and with a higher caliber of acting, the original film stands alone from the series. Spoiler alert: Tokyo gets smashed.

Next up, we trip out to the groovy sounds on Mount Fuji with 1971’s Godzilla vs the Smog Monster! Bizarre pollution monster Hedorah takes on Godzilla, and only a weak-ass band of bearded longhairs stands in his way. And some little kid, of course.

Finally, we break out of our caves and venture bravely into the real world to see the new Godzilla from 2014! We’ve had our checkered past with the glutton of cult remakes/reboots/rehashes Hollywood has thrown our way recently, but how will we react to the big guy’s return to the screen? Well, why are you asking me? Just listen already.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Mike-sell’s Potato Chips, Sean Byron: The Freddy Krueger of Facebook, VHS Conventions Chat, Monster Skepticism, That One Time in Bakersfield with the Evangelion Movie, Gearing up for Halloween, Surprising Eyepatches, Heavy Factory Doobies and so much more!

JFD212: Night Trap, Double Switch, The Pandora Directive


This week, we install Windows 95 and break out our Sega CDs for a Full Motion Video theme show. Back in the olden days of the mid-90s, video game companies were experimenting with putting real actors and real movie clips and elements into video games. And it's up to us to revisit them.

First, one of the most controversial horror video games ever: Night Trap from 1992. This game puts you right in the middle of an 80s slasher flick (it was filmed in '87) and led to congress getting their jimmies rustled and creating the video game ratings system we have today.

Next, Corey Haim recruits you to rescue him ... by setting traps in his apartment building in 1994's "Double Switch." The game also stars Debbie Harry and R. Lee Ermy. You, the player, go from room to room trapping and killing mafia guys while evading a mummy.

Finally, detective Tex Murphy stumbles on the biggest conspiracy in history in 1996's "The Pandora Directive." Tex Murphy was the star of a string of futuristic noir adventure games that were recently resurrected thanks to Kickstarter.

All this plus witty banter between friends, full anamorphic transfers, period blood, heavy guitar riffs, Nerd News, Blu-rays, spilling all the fruit and then spilling it again, Ghoul Summer teasers and so much more!

JFD211: Bad Taste, Horror House on Highway 5, Satanico Pandemonium


Evil aliens! Satanic nuns! Richard Nixon! This episode of Junk Food Dinner has it all, folks! Which is only fitting as we are joined by none other than the ghost of Mark Freado Jr to talk shit about some low-budget sleaze.

Up first, before Peter Jackson became dedicated solely to Hobbits, he was New Zealand's most promising young splatter-miester. His first feature, Bad Taste from 1987, was a low-budget labor of love and pulled out all the stomach-churning stops to tell the story of evil extraterrestrials coming to Earth to turn humans into fast food, and the goofy Kiwis out to stop 'em.

Next, we make a pit stop at Horror House on Highway Five from 1985. This ulta-low-budget straight-to-video slasher attempt features possibly Nazi/definitely crazy brothers and their father Bartholomew, a serial killer in a Richard Nixon mask, terrorizing a group of teens who just want to learn about rockets.

Finally, a nun in rural Mexico is seduced by Lucifer himself and begins to develope some very bad habits (get it!). Chock full of nudity, lesbianism, bright red blood and, of course, murder, it's Satánico Pandemonium from 1975 directed by Gilberto Martínez Solares.

 All this plus witty banter between friends, mixed signals for your boner, Buckaroo Bonzai found footage, garage punk, Nerd News, Blu-rays, "Byron" from Mortal Kombat and so much more!

JFD210: Runaway Daughters, Cool and the Crazy, Shake, Rattle and Rock!


We've turned April into AIPril (did you see what we did there?) by paying tribute to American International Pictures once again with our Rebel Highway Theme Show! For those not in the know (which included us until recently), Rebel Highway was a 1994 series of 10 TV movie homages to AIP produced for Showtime by Debra Hill and the son of Samuel Z. Arkoff and directed by ten different genre directors.

First up, we hit the road with Jenny Lewis, Holly Fields, Julie Bowen, and a very young Paul Rudd in Joe Dante's contribution to the series, Runaway Daughters! An amazingly solid roster of character actors bolster this tribute to the 1956 original, and Roger Corman puts in one of his more memorable on-screen appearances.

Next up, Ralph Bakshi takes a rare break from animation to direct the fully live-action Cool and the Crazy starring a young Alicia Silverstone and Jared Leto, also from 1994. It also has a Blues Traveler song over the closing credits, so if you're a Blues Traveler completist you might really be into this.

Finally, 1994's Shake, Rattle and Rock! rounds out the show! Allan Arkush directs this tribute to youthful rebellion and rock music. Some consider this to be the unofficial second sequel to Rock 'n' Roll High School, but everyone agrees that we reviewed it on the show this week.

All this plus witty banter between friends, JFD’s Snacks Chat, Parent’s Actors, Sweet(man) Dreams, Wolf Police, Voicemail’s aplenty, Weird-ass Hypotheticals, the return of Walter Paisley and so much more!
