Zombie Take-Out Episode 344: Frank Drebin and the Michelin Man 

Forbidden Planet Scotto and Uncle John conclude their Science Fiction Double Feature with another classic sci-fi film from the 1950s. A film that was marred by studio interference and, in some ways, mired in its own time, but was still far ahead of its time in many others. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1956, Forbidden Planet. Did studio interference ruin the film? Was Leslie Nilsen better at drama or comedy? Was Morbius really The Master? Did the romantic subplot make any sense? In the back row.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 343: I Said The Words

The Day The Earth Stood Still Scotto and Uncle John kick off their science fiction double feature with an early fifties film that has become such an unmitigated classic that parodies and references to it are now better known than the film itself. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1951, The Day The Earth Stood Still. Why were the diamonds cut? Was Klattu the only character that mattered? Who should have played him in the remake? Was Hellen trying to gaslight her son? What about Doctor X, Brad and Janet?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 342: Attack of the Tiny Bubbles

Death Bed: The Bed That Eats Scotto and Uncle John discuss one of the most infamously bad movies of all time. A film that was released over thirty years after it was film, even though its writer, director and producer has no memory of making it. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1977, Death Bed: The Bed That Eats. Is it the worst movie ever made? Could the title be just a little bit more specific? Was it filmed in a black box theater? How was it destroyed? I'm being eaten alive.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 341: We Bought an Undead Zoo 

Zoombies Scotto and Uncle John conclude their unofficial zombie animal two-parter by discussing an Asylum film that features some horrendous CGI, lots of circumvented tropes and a couple of very unexpected badasses. Then, they discuss the second season of a popular science fiction horror series that has finally learned to balance nostalgia with storytelling. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2016 and 2017, Zoombies and Stranger Things. What did Thea do to that koala? Is Hopper still a good guy? RIP, Bob.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 340: Based on a Song by Primus 

Zombeavers Scotto and Uncle John discuss a film that turns adorable woodland creatures, turns them into the undead, copies and pastes all of the tropes of a typical cabin in the woods movie and thinks that's all it takes to make a horror comedy. A film that features some great performances in some very small roles and not one likable main character. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2014, Zombeavers. Were we supposed to root for the beavers? Should John Mayer be the next Chong? How many adolescent sexual innuendos can be crammed into one bad movie? Will we ever see The Modern Ocean?
