Zombie Take-Out Episode 297: Kung Fu Sweathogs

Enter The Dragon Scotto and Uncle John kick off an action trilogy with the classic martial arts film credited with beginning the kung fu craze of the 1970s. A film that contrasts the fighting skills of expert martial artists with those of a marginally trained actor approaching middle age. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1973, Enter The Dragon. Is it better than A Fistful of Yen? Should it have had more fight scenes? Vinnie Barbarino or Joe Mantegna? Whaaaaooooooo!

Zombie Take-Out Episode 296: UHF Origins

Tapeheads Scotto and Uncle John discuss a cult classic from the '80s that stars John Cusack and Tim Robbins as security guards turned music video directors and features some great and often unexpected cameos. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1988, it's Tapeheads. Did it influence UHF? Could it have possibly have been more '80s? Are waffles just pancakes with little squares on them? How many Skylabs were there?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 295: Leave It to Ionesco

_Rhinoceros Scotto and Uncle John interrupt their regularly scheduled movie to pay tribute to the late great Gene Wilder by discussing a film that paired Wilder with Zero Mostel and was based on a play by Eugene Ionesco. In other words, it's the perfect Zombie Take-Out movie. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1974, it's Rhinoceros. Was Ionesco a time traveller? Would a modern remake have to show the rhinos? Who was more deserving of an Oscar, Mostel or Wilder? Could the dream sequence have been any more '70s? RIP, Mr. Wilder.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 294: Forever Black Flag

He Never Died Scotto and Uncle John discuss a film that stars punk icon Henry Rollins as an immortal who drinks blood and could be a vampire, but then again maybe not. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2015, it's He Never Died. Were the pronunciations of Cain & Abel correct Who was the mysterious man in the hat? Why did Jack change his mind so suddenly at the end? Did he just have a low self-opinion?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 293: Trope Tech

Real Genius Scotto and Uncle John discuss an '80s comedy that takes all of the college movie tropes that date back to Animal House, mixes them up with a healthy dose of Revenge of the Nerds, throws in a pinch of military intrigue and then calls it a day. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1985, it's Real Genius. Is it more just a typical college movie or something more? How did they not know that they were making a weapon? Was Don Henley a good choice for the party scene? Was Droz from PCU inspired by Chris Knight? Just how many montages do you really need in one movie?
