JFD Rewind Episode #2 - Dressed to Kill, The Impossible Kid, Slaughtered Vomit Dolls


With the world once again entrenched in what the ancient texts describe 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 this Holiday 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 JFD-branded content for your listening enjoyment. Tricks like this are pretty much why those Junk Food Dinner guys are the critical darlings of the Goings On About Town editors at the New Yorker, among other places, and precisely why you've got something to listen to this week.

So it's come to this: another Junk Food Dinner clip show. This week on Junk Food Dinner Rewind: a carefully curated collection of the finest musical selections, a Dad-Hattan Voicemail Segment, and three classic JFD reviews culled from the vaults. It's the perfect thing to listen to while avoiding all the members of your family this Holiday Season.

First up! We're joined by Cory from the live magic trick sensation / podcasting endeavor Illogical Contraption to discuss some controversial points about Dressed to Kill from 1980. Snatched from the jaws of our Brian De Palma theme show, our hot takes here riled up the Internet like nothing since the Moldy Strawberries incident. They'll probably get you riled as well, unless you've already heard this one.

Up next, we take a fresh look at the exploits of diminutive Fillipino action star extraordinaire, Weng Weng, with The Impossible Kid from 1982. We all enjoyed the little guy's big moves in his earlier film, For Y'ur Height Only, but will this sequel prove to be too repetitive? Or will the slavery-like reality of Weng Weng's real-life existence (exposed in a recent documentary) prove to be the element that sours our experience? One thing's for sure, nobody feels comfortable about any of this.

Finally, what would a year in JFD history be without a summer filled with regrets? That's right, we return to the Ghoul Summer graveyard and dig up our review of Slaughtered Vomit Dolls from 2006. For reasons unknown to man, Parker Bowman thought this would be a great pick for the show. We're joined by "True Ghoul" Mike Dikk (from Kissing Contest) and "The Ghost Of" Mark Freado (from being a ghost) to try and figure out why (and stifle some vomit of our own).

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!

JFD294: Krampus, Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2, Eyes Wide Shut

This week, please avoid getting run over by a reindeer as we tackle the Cult of Christmas with some Ho Ho Horror Movies and some Ho Ho Hookers (in Eyes Wide Shut). It's our final show of 2015 and the last thing we need is another raise in our podcasting insurance premiums. Happy Holidays, everyone!

First up! Director Michael Dougherty follows up his 2007 ode to Halloween, Trick 'r Treat, with this creepy tale of Christmas, Krampus from 2015! Adam Scott, Toni Collette and David Koechner star in this PG-13 family comedy / horror retelling of the German fairy tale. It's got all the CGI gingerbread men of a latter day Charles Band flick, but is this holiday stocking stuffer just a lump of coal?

Up next! You've seen the first Silent Night Deadly Night, which means you've already seen almost exactly 50% of the 1987 sequel Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2! This "sequel" started its life as a simple re-redit of the original film which would be passed off as a sequel, until the director was able to secure minimal funding and minimally talented actors to slap together 40 minutes of original footage. It's got all the garbage day scenes, but is this night "Silent (comma) Deadly", or is it "Silent but Deadly" (ie, farts)?

Finally! Nobody sane would complain about Freado-ing this Christmas pick, because it's the final film of Stanley Kubrick's career, Eyes Wide Shut from 1999. Tom Cruise gets roped up in a secret sexy society in ritzy/dreamy New York City while dealing with wife Nicole Kidman's fantasies of infidelity. It's definitely got Christmas trees, but does this movie warrant the #TomPolitics that one of our hosts brings to the table? Don't let Scientology kill us for what we say on this episode!

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, DVDs, putting the christ back in Christmas, Miley Cyrus updates, NYC subway drag queens, Star Wars Force Awakens chats, the Reagan Myth, serious accidents and sliced thumbs, Terminator talks, farts farts farts wasted dogs, German grandmothers, laughing at campy movies, finding the right key, chair dancing, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD293: Spring, Making Contact, Mad Foxes

It's a Christmas miracle and ol' Santa JFD is giving presents to three special boys. We've picked three listener-suggested movies this week.

First up, a California slacker (Lou Taylor Pucci) travels to Italy after his parents die to find himself and falls in love with a girl with a dark secret in 2015's "Spring."

Next, a kid named Joey runs afoul of a demonic dummy after his father dies in 1985's "Making Contact." The movie was originally released in Germany under the name "Joey," directed by Roland Emmerich.

Finally, a middle-aged yuppie gets into an escalating tale of revenge and mayhem in "Mad Foxes."

All this, plus Disney Land Chat, Star Wars Chat, Sean's advance Hateful 8 review, DVDs, nerd news, bleeps, bloops and scooby bops.

JFD292: The Editor, Late Phases, White God


As 2015 comes to a close, the guys at JFD are feverishly trying to take in all the movies they missed over the past year. And since Parker is out this week celebrating his milestone 45th birthday, we brought in the best in the biz, Mike Dikk from Kissing Contest to join us to chat about dogs, werewolves and fake Italians.


Up first, the Astron 6 crew (Father's Day, Manborg) return with their latest sleazy offering, this time sending up Italian giallo film in The Editor. When cast and crew members start turning up dead on a 70's film set, the reclusive editor is the prime suspect. Plenty of goofy humor, bad dubbing and boobs and gore galore. Plus appearances by Paz de la Huerta, Udo Kier and Laurence R. Harvey.

Then, a blind veteran (Nick Damici from Stake Land) is moved into a retirement community by his son (Ethan Embry) but quickly realizes there's more to worry about than the uptight old neighbors when the full moon unleashes a series of werewolf attacks in Late Phases. This one also features some great cameos like Tom Noonan, Tina Louise and Dana Ashbrook.

And finally, a young Hungarian girl is sent to live with her father for a few months, but quickly realizes that her dog isn't welcomed. When her dad abandons the pooch on the side of the road, the poor mutt is forced into a life of dog-fighting. But pushed to the edge he organizes other dogs to form a full scale pup-rising and seek revenge on those who have wronged him in White God.

All this plus witty banter between friends, a warning to ignore IMDB's year for these movies, songs about what Sean likes to drink, Wayne being a bully about French movies, Nerd News, Werewolf chat, Blu-rays with monster handjobs, discussion of the Garbage Pail Kids movie soundtrack on vinyl, absolute confidentiality, continued lack of overt police involvement and a whole lot more!

JFD291: PlayTime, Double Trouble, Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland

It couldn't be a weirder week here at Junk Food Dinner headquarters, but we're still prepared to deliver the cult-movie reviewing goods.

First up! It's Jacques Tati's epic, 70mm French semi-silent career-ender: Playtime from 1967! This subtle exploration of the changing face of a modernized Europe is one of the few comedies ever filmed in 70mm, and nearly a whole city was built to facilitate the filming. But can Parker Bowman stomach a 2+ hour silent film?

Up next! Double Trouble (1992) features that troublesome twosome, the Barbarian Twins (Peter and David Paul) as twin brothers, one a cop and one a convict, forced to work together on a case in a situation that's very Lethal and involves Weapons. Can these identical meatheads keep it together long enough to perform their lines? Or will they spend most of the movie staring at each others' groins? We'll tell ya.

Finally! We return to Camp Rolling Hills (now Camp New Horizon) with Angela Baker (still Pamela Springfield) with the whole multi-ethnic stereotype gang, in Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland from 1989. She's back and killing teens, in order to show us the satirical side of slasherdom. Our review's so good, you'll be asking for s'mores.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, DVDs, Coffin-eyed Joe, No Cell Frones Required, a Retro-Pandering Round-up, Diabetes Nostalgia, Boku Juiceboxes, Chevy Chase and the human aging process, re-arranging lamps, absolute confidentiality, a cheesy curiosities, belt buckle moves, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!

Also, Sean was totally thinking of Tombs of the Blind Dead and Not Coffin Joe in terms of those Anchor Bay releases. Blame it on the Krampus.
