Zombie Take-Out Episode 313: Troma Sweet Troma

Class of Nuke Em High Scotto and Uncle John get back to their roots and return to Tromaville to discuss one of their most famous films. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1986, it's Class of Nuke 'Em High. Does it miss any high school movie tropes? Is is it the best acted Troma movie? Were Troma the original Asylum? Should we review more of their movies? Be it ever so humble, there's no place like Tromaville

Zombie Take-Out Episode 312: Game Over

Aliens Scotto and Uncle John pay tribute to the late, great Bill Paxton by discussing the classic science fiction film that includes the improvised line that not only defined his career, but also became one of the most iconic lines in science fiction history. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1986, Aliens. Did it borrow too heavily from A New Hope? Was Evil Dead 2 referencing it? Does it observe Chekhov's gun? Should Greg Evigan have been in the film? Rest in peace, Mr. Paxton.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 311: Based on a Song by Rockwell

1984 Scotto and Uncle John pay tribute to the late, great John Hurt by discussing a film adaptation of a novel that was written over 60 years ago, but is especially relevant today. Then, in the outtake, they take a look at a rather infamous Britcom. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1984, 1984. Is that a typo? Was it influenced by Brave New World? Which was a bigger influence on 2112? Did we manage to stop talking about prog bands and get political? Resist! Rest In Peace, Mr. Hurt.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 309: Fifty Shades of Plagiarism

Secretary Scotto and Uncle John continue their impromptu BDSM two-parter with a film that was released more than a decade before Fifty Shades of Grey was published. 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!
