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?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 306: The Torgo Next Door

The Burbs Scotto and Uncle John once again kick the year off with a tribute episode, this time to the late, great Carrie Fisher, by discussing a movie that borrows from many other films including Rear Window, Neighbors and maybe even Manos The Hand of Fate, but doesn't really live up to any of them and can not even be saved by Joe Dante and a cast that, in addition to Fisher, includes Tom Hanks. Bruce Dern and even Henry Gibson. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1989, The Burbs. Was too much of it improvised? Were Ray and Art supposed to seem like kids? Could Hans have seemed any more like Torgo? What exactly were the Klopek family doing in their basement?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 305: Joining The Conspiracy

The Hebrew Hammer Scotto and Uncle John say goodbye to 2016 by revealing their top 10 and bottom 5 movies of the year and then discussing a film that puts a Jewish twist on the classic Blaxploitation movie. This week on Zombie Take-Out, The Hebrew Hammer. Is it too similar to Black Dynamite? Are there any characters who are not stereotypes? How is Andy Dick still alive? Shabbat shalom, mother ... Shut your mouth!

Zombie Take-Out Episode 303: Obi-Wan Goes to Chemistry Class

The Man in the White Suit Scotto and Uncle John discuss a classic, science fiction film that stars Alec Guinness, but probably not the one that you're thinking of. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1951, The Man in the White Suit. Does it still hold up after so many years? Was Joan Greenwood the weak link in the cast? Did Sir John Kierlaw inspire Young Mr. Grace? What about the buggy whip makers?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 302: Yips, Yiffs & Growlfs 

Mascots Scotto and Uncle John discuss the latest film by the director of one of their favorite movies that they're ever reviewed and notice a striking similarity between the two. In fact, this one might very well be the sequel. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2016, it is Mascots. Why weren't Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara in the movie? Who were we supposed to root for? Were there enough jokes? Was Chris O'Dowd underused? #inyourear
