Zombie Take-Out Episode 17: A Running Buffet

Shaun of the Dead
Scotto and Uncle John examine the possible birth of a genre with a film that combines three of their favorite things ... British comedy, geeky references and zombies. This week on Zombie Take-Out it's 2004's seminal classic Shaun of the Dead. Did it really start the 'and zombies' genre? Who could play Shaun on an American version? What exactly is a romantic fortress?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 16: Have a Heart

Split Second
Scotto and Uncle John pull out the big guns as they muse about the MPAA's ratings criteria and dicuss a film that features a stand out performance from a relative unknown, a surprisingly good performance from a well known action star, a brilliant actor in an all too small supporting role ... oh and Kim Catrall. This week on Zombie Take-Out it's 1992's Split Second. Did they really rip off two Schwarzenegger movies at the same time? Why didn't PETA boycott this mnovie? Who wears a trech coat in a flooded, global warming induced eternal night?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 15: Welcome to Tromaville

Toxie
Scotto and Uncle John take on their first Troma film. A film about a character who Lloyd Kaufman has referred to as Troma's Mickey Mouse. This week it's the one, the only, the original ... from 1984 it's The Toxic Avenger. Will it live up to the hype? Does it still ... wait, what was I saying?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 14: Water Water Everywhere or Oh look, a bird

have you seen her
Scotto and Uncle John discuss their oldest film to date as they takke a look at what is possibly Roger Corman's finest and most random work. This week on Zombie Take-Out it's 1963's The Terror featuring Jack Nicholson and Boris Karloff. How many shots of waves breaking on rocks is enough? Has PETA seen this movie? Mmmm ... butterscotch.
