JFD459: Solaris, Pumpkinhead, American Satan
This week on Junk Food Dinner we left our movie picks up to the Patreon donors and the cruel hand of the Randomizer 5000 and ended up with three very different movies.
Up first, is the 1971 Russian science fiction classic Solaris. This film about an astronaut suffering from space madness is considered a masterpiece by fans of weighty, arty sci-fi but will Andrei Tarkovsky's aggressively slow pacing be too much for the JFD boys?
Then, Lance Henriksen summons a demon to get revenge on the teens who accidentally killed his son in Stan Winston's special effects heavy horror flick Pumpkinhead from 1988.
And finally, a post-hardcore emo band made up of Brits and Midwesterners move to L.A to make it big, but when things don't go as planned they make a deal with The Devil (Malcolm McDowell) to become mega-stars. But like all Faustian deals, things don't go as expected in American Satan from 2017.
All this plus witty banter between friends, a slew of Junk Mail, news about Young Charles, critiques of Nicholas Cage's clothing choices, this week's blu-rays and so much more.
