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!

JFD336: The Shining, Sleepwalkers, Thinner


In an effort to get even further into the Halloween spirit this Schlocktober, the JFD boys break out the old Ouija board to conjure some ghosts, and lo and behold, guess who we brought forth; the ghost of former host Mark Freado Jr to talk about three Stephen King-penned films picked by the Randomizer 5000.

Up first, all work and no play makes Jack Nicholson a dull boy... and a murderous psycho when he brings his family to live in a giant hotel during the off-season only to be tortured by the ghosts of those who died before in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining from 1980.

Then, a new kid moves to Indiana from Ohio, but he's hiding his secret identity as a shape-shifting, mother-fucking (literally) cat person in Sleepwalkers from 1992.

And finally, an obese lawyer is cursed by a gypsy after running over his daughter while getting road head. The gypsy curse causes him to lose weight at a rapid pace, forcing him to try and exact revenge before he wastes away to nothing in Thinner from 1996.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Acid Bitch, rating callers on a boob scale, sound baths, more sad Nerd News, Blu-ray Picks, questionable hip-hop music, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD334: Rawhead Rex, Hellraiser, Candyman

The calendars are all true! It really is Schlocktober already! Can you believe it's our seventh annual Schlocktober already?! And to kick off our month-long celebration of the literally tightest horror movies on the planet, we're throwing a big-ol' birthday bash for Clive Barker!

First up, kids get ripped out of cars by a monstrous pagan god unleashed on the Irish countryside in 1986's Rawhead Rex! The first film based on a Clive Barker (short) story, this low budget horror flick features "the most shoe-horned in gratuitous nudity that Kevin Moss has ever seen." It's got weird sacrilegious themes, too.

Next! We finally tackle one of the most iconic horror flicks of the late 80's, a movie that likely served as most gorehound's introduction to the world of Clive Barker, 1987's Hellraiser. A skinless ex-lover back from the dead haunts a troubled marriage in this BDSM-infused British horror film, directed by Clive Barker himself! Come for the cenobites, stay for the surprising rubber monster fights!

Finally! We stare into the mirror and review this title (Candyman) exactly three times, tempting Tony Todd and the bees to come and get us. Virginia Madsen is a middle-class academic investigating the Candyman urban legend who gets mixed up in a serial-killing world in the projects on the south side. It's Candyman from 1992!

All this plus witty banter between friends, feelin' Schlocktobery, Herzogian tales of South American adventure, Rocky Horror Picture Chats, insensitive virtual reality attractions, Parker was at work all day and didn't even watch the Paul Schrader trailer, getting into that Halloween spirit, and all your favorite Schlitzie jokes, Nerd News & Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, decrepit erections, gleeks and a whole lot more!
