JFD496: Seeds, 36.15 code Père Noël (AKA Deadly Games, AKA Game Over, AKA Dial Code Santa Claus), Initiation: Silent Night, Deadly Night 4
Your Christmas is about to get cranked! Those wild Junk Food boys are at it again, holiday stylin' and profilin' three weird Xmas-Adjacent features. Featuring more incest than ever before!
Up first! We start at the only sane, logical, or respectable place to start a Christmas theme show: Seeds, from 1968. Low budget auter Andy Milligan's interpretation of America's Winter Family Holiday (tm) is a grim, back-stabbing (literally) affair (literally) wherein the family members gathered to celebrate the birth of our lord end up just fucking and murdering each other instead. Plus: bad audio looping!!
Next up! We flash all the way to 1989, where the top filmmakers in France were hard at work crafting the perfect film for the young hosts-to-be of Junk Food Dinner to completely miss out on for decades. It's every kid's best worst nightmare when Santa Claus comes to town except he's just some creepy homeless dude who's good at computers. We're talking of course about Deadly Games, known by a million other titles. You'll be thrilled by the Home Alone-esque defenses put up by this kid, to say nothing of his radical mullet.
Finally! It's a third film: Initiation: Silent Night, Deadly Night 4, from 1990. We enjoyed the first two films, so why had we never heard anything really about this one? And it's directed by Brian Yuzna? With effects from Screaming Mad George? What in the hey now?!?
All this plus checking Parker's residuals, Baby Yoda were the Stormtrooper this whole time, an unexpected celebration of guerrilla theme park filmmaking, small soldiers with big appetites, the Hallmark corporation catch-up jam, Parker's mindblowing revelation, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and even more!
