JFD328: Cobra Verde, Bloodsport, Heathers


Totally radical! #JFDecades chugs right along as we pull into the glitzy 1980's with three very different films!

Up first, Klaus Kinski plays Francisco Manoel da Silva, an outlaw who is sent on an impossible mission of re-opening the slave trade in Western Africa after he is caught impregnating 3 of a wealthy sugar baron's daughters. Needless to say, things get pretty real in Werner Herzog's 1987 epic Cobra Verde. 

Then, Jean-Claude Van Damme plays Frank Dux, a real-life martial arts expert who goes AWOL from the military in order to compete in an illegal Kumite martial-arts tournament in Hong Kong. He befriends Ogre from Revenge of the Nerds and has to face-off against Bolo Yeung (AKA Chinese Hercules) in 1988's Bloodsport.

Finally, Winona Ryder plays a suburban Ohio high schooler who runs with a clique of preppy girls all named Heather. But when a bad boy new student played by Christian Slater rolls into town, the two of them team up to take out the Heathers (and anyone else who rubs them the wrong way) in murderous fashion. Michael Lehmann (Meet the Applegates, Airheads) directs Heathers from 1988.

All this, plus drive-in chat, concerts in the grave yard,  Nerd News about who Werner Herzog likes , blu-rays of the week, voicemails from Sweetman, real talk about slavery, and so much more.

JFD326: The Mask, The Thrill Killers, Hillbillys in a Haunted House

What in the Samuel Heck?! It's the sicko sixties already? It's true what they say: these #JFDecades are the best of times and they are the worst of times. Join us this week for an exploration of some mid-century z-grade weirdness.

First up! A "South American" mask causes obsession, psychedelic freak-outs, and bouts of violence in 1961's The Mask! This low-budget shocker features extremely memorable hallucination sequences, and is credited both as Canada's first horror film and to-date only 3D film.

Next! Ray Dennis Steckler finally gets the JFD treatment as we dive into his 1964 feature The Thrill Killers (aka The Maniacs are Loose)! Surprisingly grim and violent for its time, this low-budget take on Psycho went largely unnoticed for decades. Barefoot mountain climbing fans take note.

Finally! We shack up in a spooky old mansion with a group of folksy country musicians in the bizarre Hillbillys in a Haunted House (1967). Will Jeepers (Don Bowman) and pals survive the night by warding off ghosts with their jangly guitars? John Carradine and Lon Chaney Jr have some kind of weird communist plan, but mostly it amounts to yelling at a gorilla. Cameos from Merle Haggard and friends only serve to add to the confusion. It's a movie!

All this plus witty banter between friends, the one the zombie-heads have been waiting for, JFD business dealings, menacing phantoms and phantom menaces, kevin's stash of billy beers, people with loose views on squatting, Nerd News & Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD325: Robot Monster, Kiss Me Deadly, Touch of Evil

Well, all that money spent on night school remedial math has paid off, because we've counted our way all the way to the 1940's. This week we cover three Atomic Age flicks in our latest, and some say greatest, iteration of the #JFDecades project. And we're joined by Sebastian Bendix (of Friday Night Frights / Cinefamily) for all of it!

First up! A monster that doesn't even make sense terrorizes the last survivors of a lizard apocalypse at the Bronson Cave (site of Kevin & Sean's first date) in 1953's Robot Monster! This generically titled 3D sci-fi turkey was memorable featured on MST3K, before Kickstarter was even a glimmer in a venture captialists ballsac.

Next! Mike Hammer, a shirt-ripping tough-guy of a "Bedroom Dick" stumbles upon the highest possible stakes in a really unusual case in 1955's Kiss Me Deadly! An early directing effort of Robert Aldrich, this Los Angeles detective noir features one the oldest (and largest) telephone answering machines we've discussed on the show to date.

Finally! We get hands-on with A Touch of Evil (1958). This ultra-classy affair stars a brown-faced Charlton Heston and some ludicrous caricatures of the disabled. Nice going, Orson Welles!

All this plus witty banter between friends, a soft spot for for retarded pokemon period blood, Sean Byron as Bad Luck Chuck, Peru's Bad History, a walkable drinkable square, good dad humors, checking in with the teens of today, our first podcast war, kids especially lose buttons, seagulls screaming, Nerd News & Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!
