Zombie Take-Out Episode 315: Stuff

The Gong Show Movie Scotto and Uncle John kick off their two-part tribute to their earliest comedic influence and the variety show that made him famous with a movie that takes a comedic look at both of them. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1980, The Gong Show Movie. Was it ahead of its time? How did the Popsicle Twins get on the air? What do you call Chianti and prune juice? Does a snake have an ass? Rest in Peace, Chuckie Baby.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 314: Mister Rogers' Poltergeist

Bad Ben Scotto and Uncle John discuss what could be the greatest and is almost certainly the least expensive found footage film ever made. A movie that they expected to be hilariously bad, but turned out to be legitimately good. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2016, it's Bad Ben. Could Riley have been any more stupid? Was Bad Ben in the basement while Good Ben was in the attic? Which one was buried in back of the house? Who built the shrine? Is your life savings worth your life? What does benny stand for?

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.
