Zombie Take-Out Episode 332: Apocalypse Fowl

A Breed Apart Scotto and Uncle John pay tribute to the late, great Powers Boothe by discussing a movie that has a great cast, a complicated plot and a missing reel. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1984, A Breed Apart. Why didn't the movie get more press? Was it more inspired by a Monty Python sketch or Apocalypse Now. Does it seem more '70s than '80s? What happens to an egg collection over time?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 331: Where In the World is Leisure Suit Larry

Moonraker Scotto and Uncle John pay tribute to the late, great Roger Moore by discussing one of the few Bond films that really fits into their wheelhouse. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1979, Moonraker. Does it seem like it was made in the 1960s? Was the skydiving fight real? Why did Drax have a generic European accent? How could a 50 year old Roger Moore be a ladies man?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 330: Nosferatu Dynamite

Martin Scotto and Uncle John pay tribute to the late, great George A. Romero by discussing what was his favorite and might very well be the best of his films. A movie about a young vampire without fangs or an aversion to sunlight, garlic or crosses. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1978, Martin. Did Martin really need to drink blood? Was he an actual vampire or just a troubled kid? Was superstition the real problem? How do you strike a match on the button of a denim jacket

Zombie Take-Out Episode 329: A Man and His MacGuffin

Cherry 2000 Scotto and Uncle John return from their vacation with the long-awaited conclusion to their 2000 two-parter. A film that features a great supporting cast and mixes Mad Max with '50s kitsch and the inimitable acting prowess of Melanie Griffith. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1987, Cherry 2000. Did the romantic subplot fit the movie? Which now famous actor has a cameo in it? Did the plane have a propeller? What can't you do with a toaster oven?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 328: Based on a Cartoon by Hanna–Barbera

Death Race 2000 Scotto and Uncle John are joined by special guest Jen Miller to discuss a movie that combines the dystopia of Rollerball, shock and gore aesthetics of Troma, the quality control of Roger Corman and the plot of Hanna–Barbera's Wacky Racers. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1975, Death Race 2000. Should it have had more gore? Was Mrs. Pander's name too on the nose? Was it the first dystopian film? Do Americans love fascists? Can a k-turn be dramatic? Three, sir.
