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!

Zombie Take-Out Episode 307: The Virginia Woolf Next Door

Neighbors Scotto and Uncle John continue with their impromptu neighborhood two-parter with a film that stars John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd in a reversal of the roles that made them famous. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1981, Neighbors. Were Belushi and Aykroyd right to switch roles? Why were there only two houses on the cul-de-sac? Is there quicksand in the suburbs?
