JFD615: The New Kids, Mortuary Academy, Office Killer

It's a journey for the ages this week, Junkies, as we explore the horrors of high school, college, and the workplace!

Up first! It's Sean Cunningham's rarely discussed mid-80s rural Florida thriller The New Kids, (aka Striking Back) from 1985! It's that one where Lori Laughlin and the other kid beat the crap out of James Spader and those other dudes in a decrepit Santa Claus themed theme park. Remember?

Next up! Everyone's favorite actors, Paul Bartel and Mary Woronov return to the screen with a Police Academy style send-up of the funeral home industry entitled Mortuary Academy (from 1988)! It's got a lot of puns, some on-screen rapping, and has been compared favorably to Hamburger the Motion Picture by at least one of the JFD hosts.

Finally! Of course, it's 1997's Office Killer, from esteemed fine art photographer Cindy Sherman. How could we not review a movie where Carol Kane goes batso and attacks Molly Ringwald?

All this plus Sean's surprise visitor, unwanted baseball chats, Easter candies and Easter regrets, medium skype factors, ruminations on an Armenian film classic, horror folks, the world's biggest Marvel zombie, why aren't they making Draculer for god's sake?, lighting as character, podcast jazz, cats pulling the plug, anti-work groups, nerd news and even more! Recorded live-to-tape on National John Parker Day, 2022!!
