3.34 Jingle All the Way

Trashing Through the Snow comes to a close this year with loving impressions of Phil Hartman and slightly better than Mortal Kombat 11 impressions of Schwarzenegger! When Howard ‘Howitzer’ Langston forgets to buy his son Jamie the hottest Christmas boutique gift item, a Turboman action figure, he sets out on Christmas Eve to obtain the unobtainable toy. Now he must battle his way through rampaging shoppers, cackling clerks, the Santa Cartel, Phil Hartman’s invasive security system, and even the T-1000 hot on his trail! Can Howard fulfill his son’s Christmas wish with the odds stacked against him, or will unhinged mail carrier Sinbad be his undoing? The Dark Side of the Force™ is strong with this one! We’re also adopting some MDU monsters, ending the debate on eggnog vs boiled custard once and for all, and exchanging gifts at the Wizards’ Castle. So stop petting Ted and put that cookie down because we’re jetpacking into Jingle All the Way!

Joining us is special guest, Justin Silverman!

3.33 Jack Frost (1997)

A week before Christmas in the backwater town of Snowmonton, serial killer Jack Frost is chemically merged with snow in a freak accident engineered by John Hurt’s minion Cumdar. Vowing revenge on the man who captured him, lovable loser Sheriff Sam Tiler, Jack is reborn as one Bad Mr. Frosty™! With the help of his deranged son Ryan’s antifreeze oatmeal and general store owner/local sidewalk salter Mr. ‘I’ll Give it to you 20% Off’ Paul, maybe (just maybe), Sheriff Sam can take down the homicidal snowman once and for all! Shannon Elizabeth makes her film debut in this sleazy, dark comedy that also features an Andrienne Barbeau stand-in that we fell in love with, as well as two cops that are simply in love. We’re also talking our favorite holiday films and monsters, looking back on the unforgettable VHS box art for this movie, and giving our favorite horror franchises holiday themed sequels! So plug in your hairdryer, fire up those aerosol cans, and aim for the puddle of water coming through the door, because we’re about to get frostbitten in half by Jack Frost!

3.32 Call Me Claus

‘Zat you, Santa Goldberg? Well, the alternate timeline version anyway! Whoopi joins the Movie Dumpster Universe in a splintered, yuletide excursion that can’t help but rip-off other, better Christmas movies. Goldberg plays a malcontent, home shopping network executive producer that hasn’t had the Christmas spirit since her father was sent home in a gift wrapped box from Vietnam during the holidays. Her career is upended when a man claiming to be the real Santa reveals that unless she takes up his mantle, the world will literally end! We’re talking T-Day, global warming, Bruce Davison and John Hurt living together–MASS HYSTERIA! Are you filled with joy yet? We also decide what fantastical insect we’re stuffing Clint Howard with this week, what powers we would ask Saint Nick for, our favorite and trashiest gifts, and inserting zombies all over the MDU. So don’t forget your vanilla latte, hang on to that gift receipt for Jackpot Santa, and watch out for the extra dimensional being known as ‘Ralph’ because we’re not exactly sure how to respond when Whoopi says “Call Me Claus”!

3.31 Silent Night Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker

The stockings are hung on the mantle, the tree is trimmed, and the sugar cookies are in the oven! Trashing Through the Snow officially begins with one of the most pants-crapping insane holiday movies we’ve seen so far. Booze hound toy maker Joe Petto played by Mickey Rooney is trying to ruin Christmas by creating killer toys. Little Derek, his mother Sarah and the returning DISCIPLINER™ might be the only ones who can put a stop to it. And don’t even let us start on Petto’s “totally not a creepy automaton” son named Pino…don’t overthink it. Get ready for several nonsensical red herrings and a Santa-sized sack full of bizarre creative choices! We’re also talking about movies that shaped our childhoods, pairing up MDU characters in potential buddy cop movies, and thinking back to those gift requests that got away. So climb out of Dr. Freudstein’s basement, stalk your long-lost lover from the shadows, and power-up that Larry the Larvae for a good time, because things are about to get really uncomfortable on this Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker!
