Junk Food Dinner Podcast: Episode #56

  • Junk Food Dinner
Look out! The latest episode of everybody's favorite cult movie podcast is upon us, and boy oh boy, is it a doozy.

The first movie on the docket this week is Grotesque from 1988 starring Linda Blair about a gang of overacting punks who terrorize a family at their home in the mountains until the tables are turned in twist after ridiculous twist.

Then we watch as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson goes on a manhunt to kill those responsible for his brothers murder, all while being trailed by Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Billy Bob Thornton, in the macho action flick Faster from 2010.

And finally, it's a supernatural geriatric killing spree when we laugh our way through the expectedly silly straight-to-video horror comedy The Granny from 1995 directed by Luca Bercovici and starring Stella Stevens and Shannon Whirry.

Also, we have Nerds News, this week's DVD and Blu-Ray releases and much more!

Courting controversy: The Exorcist

Dave kicks off a new occasional series, looking at the films that have courted controversy over the years. Where better to start than The Exorcist?

There are a fair few movies that have courted controversy over the decades, be it a film about cheese under a microscope or the Asian torture film, Grotesque. Some of these films you will have heard of.: Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Evil Dead, Cannibal Holocaust, Clockwork Orange and, the subject of this feature, The Exorcist

Others, I'll be surprised if anyone but a handful of people will have ever experienced: Don't Go Near The Park, Don't Go In The Woods, Don't Look In The Basement and Don't Tell Mom, The Babysitter's Dead. Okay, that last one isn't a video nasty, but fits in with the motif of things not to do!

In the 1980s, as many of you will probably know, the video nasty boom was at its height.

Saturday Nightmares: To All a Goodnight (1980)

Introduction:

Is there a better time to watch horror movies than on Saturday night? Be it alone or with friends, with beer or without, there’s just something about letting the stresses of the week slip away in the presence of a deranged killer, a zombie apocalypse, alien invaders, hungry vampires, werewolf orgies (if you haven’t seen Howling II, shame on you!) or any such combination.

As a kid, there was nothing more exciting than staying up late on Saturday night and prowling the channels for late-night horror programming. Being exposed to things like Day of the Dead, The Howling, Race with the Devil and Black Christmas before the age of ten certainly helped contribute to my demented modern day state of mind. Before my parents even knew what was happening, I was disavowing any and all interest in spots, cub scouts and anything else kids do, in favor
