JFD574: Goke, Body Snatcher from Hell, Hawk Jones, A Scanner Darkly
Up first, Hajime Satô directs a tale about a group of passengers on a plane that is set off course and crash lands in a remote area where aliens have landed and may also be body snatchers and vampires in the 1968 sci-fi classic Goke, Body Snatcher from Hell.
Next, two teenage brothers write and direct a hard-boiled cop drama, but there's a twist; the cast is made up entirely of 6 to 8-year-olds! Hawk Jones made a minor splash when it was released on VHS in 1986 but has since gained a sizable cult following thanks to the internet.
Finally, Richard Linklater casts Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson and Winona Ryder to fill out the drug-addled and rotoscoped paranoid world of Phillip K. Dick's A Scanner Darkly from 2006.
All this plus we discuss the origin of Husker Du (and Husker Don'ts), Sean's favorite brand of hot dogs, we meet a new Swedish friend, we check in with our friends who are melting in the Pacific Northwest, updates on "the Flintstone House", Dune delays, gay British bikers and so much more.
