JFD337: The Crow, Murder Party, Tales of Halloween

Happy Halloween, Junkies! Your charming pals at Junk Food Dinner are here to help you get your spookiest week of the year kicked into spooky gear. Are you ready for ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and all the creepy crawlies of the night? We'll haunt your podcast feed with scary tales of the time we watched these three seasonally-appropriate flicks!

First up, it's a borderline Freado (according to some), when Parker Bowman selects 1994's The Crow! Brandon Lee stars as a goth-Bronson arisen from the grave to pull a Death Wish in maybe-dystopian Detroit. It's a pre-post-apocalyptic bloodbath, with more birds!

Next! We listen to the listeners and listen to our hearts by reviewing 2007's Murder Party. Jeremy (Blue Ruin, Green Room) Saulnier's debut feature is a claustrophobic, comedic horror about a Halloween party gone awry. If you like cardboard boxes, you've probably already seen this one.

Finally! We get anthological with 2015's Tales of Halloween! Have you ever wondered what it would look like if you crammed ten shorts into an hour and a half runtime? These filmmakers (including Neil Marshall) did, and the results may surprise you!

All this plus witty banter between friends, feelin' Schlocktobery, haunted house noises, our continued battle against the Demon Skype, getting scurred, Godzilla chats, Sad Nerd News and Spooky Nerd News, a time before DVD Beaver, a solid number two, you're going to hell, a really shitty Gremlins kinda thing, flipping laserdiscs with Shelby Cobretti, Spoopy Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, decrepit erections, gleeks and a whole lot more!

  1. Hi guys! :)
    Love the podcast! been listening for a very long time.
    A little question.. right before talking about "tales of halloween",
    you guys played a song that went a little like this: "halloween! when it's halloween! when witches .. (something something..) pumpkin pie!.. (something something...) children candy (something something..)" :/
    I tried using the "shazam" app but it didn't give any results... would you mind telling me the name of the song? Please? :)

    Thanks in advance! Keep up the great work!

    1. Sorry for the late reply, but here's your answer. It's a dusty old one!
