Zombie Take-Out Episode 23: This Space For Rent

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes
Scotto and Uncle John discuss another b-movie classic. A movie that in many ways was far ahead of its time. A movie that has had a great influence on both the Zuckers and whoever the hell keeps making the 'Genre Movie' movies. This week on Zombie Take-Out it's 1978's Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. How did they manage to kill people after all? Why did the only name in the movie have such a small (and uncredited) part? Could somebody please pass the ketchup?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 22: The Post-Elvis Years

Bubba Ho-tep
Scotto and Uncle John discuss a movie that features one of the best performances from a B-movie icon and one of the last performances from an American film legend ... a film that Jeff from My Name is Bruce said that "everyone liked". This week on Zombie Take-Out it's the cult classic Bubba Ho-tep. Was the movie too serious? Was the scarab too fake? Just how much fire does it take to kill the reanimated, mummified remains of an ancient, Egyptian Pharaoh anyway?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 21: No More Mr. Passive Resistance

UHF
Scotto and Uncle John discuss a film about a man who shared Ed Wood's spirit. A film by a man who we consider to be a living legend. This week on Zombie Take-Out it's "Weird Al" Yankovic (and several others before they were famous) in UHF. Hodgson or Geary? Bowe or Bowie? Spatula City Spatula City Spatula City!

Zombie Take-Out Episode 20: Hubcaps over Hollywood 2: Rise of The Angora

 Ed Wood
Scotto and Uncle John conclude their first real two parter with a film that is, at least in part, about the making of last years film. A film about a man without whom we probably wouldn't be doing this show. This week on Zombie Take-Out it's Ed Wood. Did Martin Landau deserve the Academy Award? Did Geouge "The Animal" Steele need a dialogue coach? Cut! Print!
This episode is dedicated to the late Captain Lou Albano

Zombie Take-Out Episode 19: Hubcaps over Hollywood

Plan 9 from Outer Space
Scotto and Uncle John discuss what could be the most infamout B-movie of all time. A movie so well known that it 35 years after it's release it had feature film made about its making and named after its director. This week on Zombie Take-Out it's the classic Plan 9 from Outer Space. Was it the first B-movie? Should they even bother with the remakes? Dudley Manlove?
