JFD298: Winterbeast, A Simple Plan, Breakheart Pass


Well folks, we're officially in the icy grip of winter, so why not embrace the cold by partying with your Junk Food Dinner bros and three winter-themed movies.

Up first is the low-budget regional horror flick Winterbeast from 1992. This strange piece of straight-to-video history was shot over the course of several years and features stop-motion monster madness, a dildo that no one acknowledges, more plaid than you can shake a stick at and a truly disturbing scene featuring a clown mask, a children's record and some corpses. Also, despite this film's title and cover art, it doesn't actually take place during winter.

Next, we discuss A Simple Plan from 1998. No, not that shitty pop-punk band, the Sam Raimi flick starring Bill Paxton, Bridget Fonda and William Robert Thornton about a group of small town folk who find a bag of money in a crashed airplane and decide to keep it. But like a Biggy song come to life, mo' money means mo' problems and shit gets real.

And finally, Charles Bronson is a prisoner with a secret being transported on train filled with Civil War soldiers, but things quickly escalate when people start ending up dead in Breakheart Pass from 1975.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Parker avoiding illness, Kyle from Kentucky, a caller obsessed with numerals, Nerd News & Blu-ray Picks, movies inspired by t-shirts, defense of Sam Raimi's middle period, Mexican Ozzy, continued lack of police involvement and so much more!

JFD297: Desperate Teenage Lovedolls, Blue Monkey, Dream a Little Dream

Speaking of movies that have been made, it's another round of weird-ass cult movie reviews from your pals at Junk Food Dinner. We meet up with murderous punk rockers, hospital aliens, and not one but two Coreys. Skipping this episode is a bozo no-no.

First up! No-budget punksploitation has never been so sleazy! It's 1984 Los Angeles, and local zine We Got Power and film maker David Markey got together with local band Redd Kross to slap together this story of a girl-punk band gone awry, with influences ranging from Russ Meyer to John Waters. Featuring matricide! It's Desperate Teenage Lovedolls!

Up next! You may have heard of "Green Monkey" and you've probably heard of "Insect!". You've also heard of "Inseminátor" and "Invasion of the Bodysuckers." But have you heard that these are all titles for the same 1987 alien-invading-a-hospital horror flick? Well, they are and it is called Blue Monkey and we watched it.

Finally! It's a classic tale of body swapping (or is it?) It features performances by both Corey's (or does it?) The only thing that's certain is that 1989's Dream A Little Dream is discussed. We think.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Health Insurance premiums, Night Train to Terrible???, Buttery Burgers, Musical Junkmail, The Sweetest Man Alive, Controversial Deaths on the Record, Nerd News & DVD Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD296: City of the Living Dead, From Beyond, The Necronomicon


This week's episode is indescribable, unspeakable and cosmically horrifying. It's an H.P. Lovecraft theme show! (Well, mostly.) HP New Year!

First, a story so Lovecraftian it isn't even based on Lovecraft at all! Lucio Fulci's "City of the Living Dead" (aka "Gates of Hell") from 1980 is a tale of a journalist and a psychic tasked with stopping the gates of hell from opening after a priest commits suicide. It's also the tale of a homeless pedophile. For some reason.

Next, Stuart Gordon adapts a short story for 1985's "From Beyond." The director teams back up with Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton ("Re-Animator") for this tale of scientists who accidentally discover that monsters are all around them constantly.

Finally, Jeffrey Combs returns as Lovecraft himself in the anthology film "Necronomicon" from 1993. Brian Yuzna, Christophe Gans, Shusuke Kaneko each direct a story based on the author's works. The tales include squid monsters, reanimation and demonic space bats.

All this, plus Nerd News, DVDS, Binders full of women, Old Zealand, Tom Cruise Chat, Who's the REAL Freado?, Voicemails, friendly chat, the possibility of a beautiful boob slipping out and so much more.

JFD295: Bat Pussy, Café Flesh, The Bikini Carwash Company II


It's 2016 and Junk Food Dinner wants to wish you a Happy NUDE Year!

We kick things off by recounting our favorite (and least favorite) films of the past year, 2015. Does Parker like Star Wars? Has Sean come around to Mad Max: Fury Road? Tune in and find out!

Then things get erotic(?) as we scope out three very odd and very different sex films.

Up first, two drunken hillbillies trade insults as the sloppily try to perform oral sex on each other until the are interrupted by a chick in a homemade Batman costume in the worst porno ever, Bat Pussy from 1973.

Then, Herbert W. Day (AKA Jerry Stahl) and Rinse Dream (AKA Stephen Sayadian), the guys who brought us Dr. Caligari, take us on a surreal erotic journey to a bizarre future where nuclear fallout has turned half the population into sexless mutants who come from miles around to watch Michelle Bauer and a host of other art/porn stars go at it in Café Flesh from 1982.

And finally, if you ever flipped through HBO and Cinemax late at night back in the 90's, chances are you probably saw some of The Bikini Carwash Company II from 1993. In this installment, the bikini carwash girls have gone corporate, but wouldn't you know it, the greedy fat cats are trying to screw them out of their company. Luckily, in this alternate reality, getting nude can solve all of life's problems.

All this plus witty banter between friends, cheeseburger reviews, drunk driving tips, how to start a road trip mix, rap cassingle chat, disrespect of Ed Helms, Parker's pop-punk round up, audio clips of redneck bickering, naughty jazz songs and a whole lot more!
