Posted in Uncategorized on September 16, 2010 by John

Species
After nearly 5 months in the vaults, episode 35 can finally be revealed. Uncle John has his first Richard Coyle moment as he and Scotto discuss a movie that shows just how much Ben Kingsley and Forest Whitaker like to get paid. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1995, it’s Species. Was it just a remake of Lifeforce? Did most of the budget go to Kingsley and Whitaker’s salaries? Please adopt a Ben Kingsley or a Forest Whitaker today.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 52: It’s …

Posted in Uncategorized on September 8, 2010 by John

Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter
Something very Canadian is going on as Scotto and Uncle John switch roles while discussing their first vampire movie. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2001, it’s … Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter. Was it no better than a student film? Could it have been made in America? Did I really need to pull out the Dude, Where’s My Car? reference again?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 51: The dumbest thing I’ve ever heard

Posted in Uncategorized on August 31, 2010 by John

Murder by Death
Normalcy returns to the universe as Scotto ends his 5 brain streak and he and Uncle John go back to having vastly different opinions about a movie. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1976, it’s Murder by Death. Was James Coco just a poor man’s Dom Deluise? Should they have replaced Truman Capote with a real actor? Willie Wang? … Seriously?

Psycho
Scotto and Uncle John discuss what could be the most famous horror movie of all time and its shot-for-shot remake. This week on Zombie Take-Out it’s Psycho from 1960 and Psycho from 1998. Was the original just a b-movie in mainstream clothing? Was a shot-for-shot remake at all necessary? Lucky stamps.

THX 1138
Scotto and Uncle John continue their ongoing debate over the relative merits of Mr. Lucas’ work with a discussion of his first feature film. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1971, it’s THX 1138. How was Lucas able to predict the future (now the present) so accurately? Should he always work with a co-writer? Did we really need to see the milking machine?

Zombie Take-Out and Hitchcock Classic hit 50

Posted in Uncategorized on August 16, 2010 by John

Podcast celebrates 50th episode with a 50th Anniversary look at Alfred Hitchcock’s landmark film.

August 25, 2010: Zombie Take-Out, the cult and B-movie podcast, invites everyone to commemorate the film that took B and cult movies into the mainstream, Psycho, at http://www.zombietakout.com. Hosted by Chicago resident, Scotto, and New Jersey Shore resident, Uncle John, Zombie Take-Out (ZTO) examines a different B or cult movie with each episode. ZTO’s 50th episode will take a look at the original Alfred Hitchcock directed Psycho, released August 25, 1960, as well as the 1998 remake starring Vince Vaughn.
ZTO is always free to listen to, can be found on iTunes or http://www.zombietakeout.com, and is intended for mature audiences only. Uncle John and Scotto have been confounding listening, reading, and theatre-going audiences for over 18 years. In their latest project, ZTO, they combine absurdist humor with their literary backgrounds to discuss movies that are most often over-looked by mainstream culture.
Psycho, of course, has never been over-looked by anyone, so why review it? When asked, Scotto said, “It’s the Jackie Robinson of B movies! A movie about a transvestite serial killer made for about 2% of the entire budget for 1963’s Cleopatra? This elevated the B movie like no other. This proved that talent and ingenuity trumps budget any day.”
