JFD Rewind Episode #1 - Evil Dead (2013), The Men Behind the Sun, The Oogieloves


With the world deeply entrenched in what can only be described as a severe outbreak of Holiday Fever, it makes sense that other podcasters haven't had the time or fortitude to produce a new episode on this New Year's Week. And while it is true that your charming hosts are currently enjoying the holidays in a serene, secluded, secretive island retreat with absolutely no cannibals and/or zombies, unable to record a new show - they've also devised a clever approach to maintain a steady output of Junk Food Dinner branded content for your listening enjoyment. This episode has been carefully tailored to suit the discriminating tastes of the most refined JFD connoisseurs.

So it's come to this: a Junk Food Dinner clip show. This week on Junk Food Dinner Rewind: a carefully curated collection of the finest Face to Face chats, and three classic JFD reviews culled from the vaults. Rumor has it this episode makes excellent background noise for your New Year's Eve parties, kids.

First up! Fresh from the movie theater, we discuss the Fede Alvarez directed remake/reboot Evil Dead from 2013. This new version gained a lot of buzz before its release for promising to remain true to the spirit of the original and deliver an onslaught of practical gore effects. Does it live up to the hype? You'll have to tune in to find out, unless you've heard this one before.

Up next, while the Nazis get all the ghoulish attention, The Men Behind the Sun from 1988 shows that the Japanese were up to some serious ghoulish shit during World War II as well.. This Chinese film tells the tale of Squadron 731, a prison camp where Japanese soldiers and scientists commit gruesome atrocities against prisoners. This flick also earns bonus ghoul points for using real cadavers and animal cruelty. And this review earns double bonus ghoul points for featuring guest reviewer The Memphis Maniac!

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. It's a film that creates wounds that may never heal in some men.

All this plus witty banter between friends, witty banter between Freados, zero Nerd Newsies, no week's DVD & blu-ray releases, absolute confidentiality, continued lack of police involvement, robot voices, musical interludes, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a little bit more!

JFD218: Kingdom of the Spiders, Curse of the Blue Lights, 3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain

This is it! The fabled "lost episode" of Junk Food Dinner!

First up, it's up to William Shatner to stop tarantulas from taking over a small Arizona town in 1977's "Kingdom of the Spiders."This flick was made before cgi or PETA, so be prepared for lots of people crushing lots of real ass spiders.

Next, a group of teens goes out to a local make-out spot that may or may not be haunted. Spoiler alert: It's haunted. "Curse of the Blue Lights," from 1988.

Finally, we take on bizarre late 90s nostalgia as we watch the fourth 3 Ninjas movie: "3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain." The kid ninjas get Die Harded at an amusement, where they join up with Hulk Hogan to take out dominatrix Lonnie Anderson and a sword-fighting Jim Varney.

All this plus witty banter between friends, out-dated Nerd News, the Sweetman, our Junky DVD picks for the week, Kevin Smith musings, previews of episodes that happened a long time ago, turning down TV offers and so much more!

JFD243: Female Trouble, Space Station 76, The Monster's Christmas

Merry Christmas, from your pals at Junk Food Dinner! This week, we get into the holiday spirit with three films loosely centered around the season.

Up first, Divine plays Dawn Davenport, a high school delinquent who gets so upset that she doesn't get a pair of cha cha heels for Christmas that she runs away from home, gets knocked up, shacks up with a hair dresser and becomes the subject of crime-based photography in John Waters' campy classic Female Trouble from 1974.

Then, Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Marisa Coughlan and Jerry O'Connell are crew members are crew members on a futuristic, yet retro space station. They struggle with relationships, loneliness and celebrate Christmas in Jack Plotnick's stylish space drama/comedy Space Station 76 from 2014.

Finally, we travel to New Zealand, where a little girl befriends monsters and battles a witch in order to get all the monsters' voices back in the insanely surreal 1981 made-for-tv holiday special The Monster's Christmas.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, incorrect predictions about the future of The Interview, our Junky DVD picks for the week, Aerosmith jokes, anticipation of Clayton Miller DVDs, kangaroos with boxing gloves and so much more!

JFD242: Sugar Cookies, Hollywood Boulevard, The Living End


Ho, Ho, Hot Mama! Mary Xmas, everyone! It's the most wonderful time of the year, where your three Junk Food Dinner hosts gather around the fireplace, break out the eggnog, and reflect fondly on three films starring JFD Hall of Famer, Mary Woronov. It's our first ever Mary Xmas theme show!

First up, we take a bite out of 1973's Sugar Cookies! This sleazy softcore thriller was written by a pre-Troma Lloyd Kaufman, was produced by Oliver Stone, and has a lot of boobs in it!

Next, we take a stroll down 1976's Hollywood Boulevard! Fresh out of the Roger Corman school of hard knocks, a very young Joe Dante teams up with a similarly youthful Allan Arkush to make an ultra-low-budget send-up of ultra-low-budget filmmaking! Woronov, Bartel, Miller and all your favorite from Corman's gang make appearances.

Lastly, we hit the road with the cast of 1992's The Living End! The directorial debut of Gregg Arakki, this hard-edged entry in New Queer Cinema doesn't feature a whole lot of Woronov, but it does feature Mike's Hockey Burger.

All this plus friendly banter between wits, Nerd News, The Lynn Lowry / Dark Crystal Connection, our Junky DVD picks for the week, weekly Kevin Smith updates, shiftless artist layabout types, Listener Junk Mail, sneezes, boogers and so much more!

JFD241: Lionheart, Paprika, The Guest


It's dream machines, dreamboats and dream fights tonight, Junkies!

First, Jean Claude Van Damme quits the French Foreign Legion when he hears his brother has been murdered. This leads to a bizarre underground fighting tournament and some very soggy leotards in "Lionheart" from 1990. The movie was written and directed by frequent JCVD collaborator Sheldon Lettich ("Double Impact," "Bloodsport").

Next, Satoshi Kon ("Perfect Blue") directs the beautiful and trippy 2006 anime "Paprika," about a scientific machine that enables psychologists to enter their patients' dreams. the film is often cited as being the unoficial source material for "Inception."

Finally, a young soldier visits the family of his dead comrade in Adam Wingard's "The Guest," from 2014. Is this soldier who he says he is? The family is suspicious. You won't be, though, because (BEWARE!) we spoil the whole damn thing!

All this, Nerd News, DVDs, Sweet Mans and 74 other things!
