JFD270: Meet the Feebles, Viy, Sex & Fury
Up first, we tackle a long-requested fan-favorite, 1989's Meet the Feebles from Pete Jackson! From the creator of Bad Taste comes a film with no taste at all. Murder, suicide, sex, drugs, rock and roll and puppets collide in this twisted parody of The Muppet Show. It's got a song about sodomy!
Next! We stop by Soviet-era Russia for a fantastical retelling of a classic folk tale about a crazy witch in a mausoleum. Often cited as an influence for Evil Dead, 1967's Viy features exactly zero blood-rain, as it should. Instead, it's got the craziest witch-based movie ending in the history of insanity. Trust us, it's nuts!
Finally, we visit 1973 Tokyo, land of the rising sun and the pinku film, for a little Sexy & Fury! This Toei Pinky Violence flick heavily influenced Quentin Tarantino, but for some reason he chose to leave the clothing on his sword-fighting actresses, unlike director Norifumi Suzuki's rape-y sleazefest. A mostly Japanese cast is unexpectedly joined by Swedish cult erotica star Christina Lindberg.
All this plus witty banter between friends, movie characters we can't stand, an unexpected call from Warren Beatty (from Dick Tracy!), a taste of the Piven, Randomizing our Ghoul Summer Dikk Picks, Nerd News and This Week in DVD, toilet-based houseflies, Bowmans' Bookshelf, a fair share of nudity and blood spray, more skype noise than normal, surfing the Internet for info, asexual Parker, absolute confidentiality, continued lack of police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!
