Zombie Take-Out Episode 90: The Spaceship of Dr. Moreau (Blow them out of where?)

The Black Hole Scotto and Uncle John continue their Disney trilogy with a movie that features two actors that were featured in the last two movies that they reviewed ... and they're both playing robots. This week on Zombie Take-Out it's Roddy" McDowall and Slim Pickens (and some other people) in 1979's The Black Hole. Was Anthony Perkin's phoning it in? Just how does ESP work with a robot? Should Slim Pickens be in every movie?

Hey guys, loved the last two episodes on sci-fi Disney movies! A couple of comments from me:

- Cat from Outer Space: For some weird reason, when I was young and saw this in the theater I was convinced that there was a connection between this movie and the "Witch Mountain" movies. Years later when I saw the movie with my kids I realized it wasn't so, which was a huge disappointment. Wouldn't it have been cool if the cat belonged to those kids?

- Black Hole: Never understood the whole heaven and hell ending. Was traumatized by the way Anthony Perkins was killed; this is a Disney movie? Had high expectations for this movie; followed it religiously on Starlog magazine and even had a VINCENT model kit. After seeing the movie I blew VINCENT up with firecrackers.

Recommendations for future shows: Continue the Disney line-up with "Condorman," and seek out a low-budget "Raiders" knock-off titled "Treasure of the Four Crowns."

Keep up the good work!

I went into the Black Hole review thinking that it was a family movie too, but after thinking about it a bit I think that it may have been Disney's attempt to break out of only doing family films (before they had the Touchstone and Hollywood labels). Unfortunately, they may have taken it a little too far. Thanks for the comments and recommendations, I'll put them on the list.
