Zombie Take-Out Episode 337: Garry Shandling and the Magic Treasure

Fateful Findings Scotto and Uncle John discuss a low-budget film that's easily both the worst movie that they've ever reviewed and one of the best. A film that fails so spectacularly on every conceivable level that it redefines the very concept of so bad it's good and makes the room look decent by comparison. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2012, Fateful Findings. Is it the perfect b-movie? Is it intentionally bad? Was it written by a child How much better does The Room look in comparison? It's a magical day.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 336: Oedipus Dolittle

The Beastmaster Scotto and Uncle John discuss a 1980s sword and sorcery flick that pit Mike from V against Zed from Men in Black, except Mike is also Dr. Dolittle and one of the second rate, replacement Charlie's Angles was there and the father from Good Times was there and you were there. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1982, The Beastmaster. Should more of the budget have gone toward pants? Is there anything that ferrets can't do? Could John Amos have shown a little more skin? Did they spend all of the money they saved on pants on pyro?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 335: Sam, You Did It

Paris, Texas Scotto and Uncle John pay tribute to the late, great Harry Dean Stanton by discussing a two and a half hour film that has no plot, no action and began filming before the script was completed, but could easily be the best movie that they've reviewed in over eight years. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1984, Paris, Texas. Would the film have worked without such a great writer and cast? Could anything have been cut from it? Is it Nastassja Kinski's best work? Why was Anne flirting with Travis? Did Travis have OCD? Was Hunter more an adult than his father? Rest in peace, Mr. Stanton.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 334: Where in the World is MacGuffin Jr.?

Sharknado 5: Global Swarming
Scotto and Uncle John discuss the latest in a series of science fiction, disaster parody movies that have been taking a bite out of every summer since 2013. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2017, Sharknado 5: Global Swarming. Was the plot too thin? Does a Sharknado movie even need a plot? Who had the best cameo? Is it possible to even recognize all of the cameos at this point? Should Greg Louganis and Jeffery Combs do a movie together? Semper paratus.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 333: Based on a Song by Dead Kennedys

Surf Nazis Must Die Scotto and Uncle John sort of return to the world of Troma and subtly comment on recent events by discussing a film that mixes surfing, World War II, The Warriors and maybe even a bit of West Side Story. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1987, Surf Nazis Must Die. Were there too many surfing montages? Was she his mother or his grandmother? Why was Adolph's mustache so big?
