JFD652: Flying Phantom Ship, Blood Simple, Heartland of Darkness

This week on JFD, the hosts are left to their own devices and pick three random films they've been itchin' to discuss. 

Up first, Sean continues his personal theme month of Japan-uary, inspired by his recent travels to Japan and brings us a vintage anime about a boy and his dog getting to the bottom of a local mystery and finding his true origins in Flying Phantom Ship from 1969. 

Next, we take a look at The Coen Brothers' humble beginnings with the noir-inspired Blood Simple from 1984 about a murder-for-hire plot involving Dan Hedaya, Frances McDormand, John Getz and M. Emmet Walsh

And finally, we uncover a "lost" low-budget Ohio horror flick Heartland of Darkness from 1989 about a Satanic cult in a small town and the local reporter determined to get to the bottom of it. The film stars scream queen Linnea Quigley and friend of the show Nick Baldasare

All this plus all of Parker's heroes are getting cancelled, Kevin's pinball adventures, we find out about even more stop-motion magic from 2022, Jackie Chan-uary, and so much more.
