Zombie Take-Out Episode 310: A Coming of Age Story

Bitter Moon Scotto and Uncle John conclude their impromptu BDSM trilogy by discussing their first Roman Polanski film. A movie about two vastly different married couples who end up in very unusual romantic and sexual parallelogram. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1992, Bitter Moon. Was the cause of Oscar's paralysis realistic? What is F. Scott Fitzgerald's last name? Did The Roxbury Guys borrow their suits from the movie? What is the point of it all?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 309: Fifty Shades of Plagiarism

The two share some striking similarities, including a very familiar name, and yet E.L. James has never mentioned it. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2002, Secretary. Was it a bigger influence on Fifty Shades of Grey than Twilight? Do both films have similar messages? Did the group that gathered at the law office make sense? Read it again!

Zombie Take-Out Episode 308: Red! Red!! Red!!!

Fifty Shades of Grey Scotto and Uncle John discuss a notoriously bad movie based on a notoriously bad book that heavily features a practice that is frequently misunderstood and maligned. Needless to say, this franchise does nothing to change that. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2015, Fifty Shades of Grey. Should it become a midnight movie? How old is E.L. James? What does Dom DeLuise have to do wth any of this? By the power of Greyskull …

Zombie Take-Out Episode 307: The Virginia Woolf Next Door

Neighbors Scotto and Uncle John continue with their impromptu neighborhood two-parter with a film that stars John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd in a reversal of the roles that made them famous. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1981, Neighbors. Were Belushi and Aykroyd right to switch roles? Why were there only two houses on the cul-de-sac? Is there quicksand in the suburbs?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 306: The Torgo Next Door

The Burbs Scotto and Uncle John once again kick the year off with a tribute episode, this time to the late, great Carrie Fisher, by discussing a movie that borrows from many other films including Rear Window, Neighbors and maybe even Manos The Hand of Fate, but doesn't really live up to any of them and can not even be saved by Joe Dante and a cast that, in addition to Fisher, includes Tom Hanks. Bruce Dern and even Henry Gibson. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1989, The Burbs. Was too much of it improvised? Were Ray and Art supposed to seem like kids? Could Hans have seemed any more like Torgo? What exactly were the Klopek family doing in their basement?
