4.3 Blacula

Count Dracula turns ill-fated African prince Mamuwalde into a creature of the night. If being turned into a vampire wasn’t enough, he’s also sealed away in a tomb with an unquenched thirst for eternity. Decades later, he’s released from his casket prison within the walls of the MDU Warehouse. Now, prowling the streets of 1970’s L.A., Mamuwalde has a thirst for disco, blood, and his long lost love–or at least someone who looks like her, anyway. William Marshall stars in the first ever black horror film that would go on to influence the genre forever. Grab Simon Belmont’s exploding holy oil lamps, pour yourself a Bloody Mary, and put your dancing shoes on because we’re about to be kissed on the neck by Blacula!

Talks from the Darkside | 00 Trick or Treat

Welcome to the premiere of our brand new show ‘Talks from the Darkside!’ Joined by Chris Bahr from Tape Hell, the Dumpster trio is going lead you right into the Darkside™ of man’s domain! Spanning 4 years and 90 episodes, ‘Tales from the Darkside’ was a crucial part of horror television and storytelling. So, join us as we tackle the entire series, with plenty of laughs and shrieks to be had along the way! It all starts with the original pilot that launched a legacy.

00 Trick or Treat:
A rich and spiteful old man named Gideon Hackles, who holds an obsession for documenting and exploiting debts owed to him, annually offers trick-or-treaters the chance to search his house on Halloween night for their parents’ IOUs, only to terrify them with animatronic “ghosts”. Over the course of the night, Mr. Hackles finds himself terrified by real ghosts… or in this case, demons.

Guest-starring Barnard Hughes as Gideon Hackles, and Max Wright, written by George A. Romero.

Original air date: October 29, 1983

4.2 Coffy

This week we’re serving a hot cup of shotgun toting revenge! Pam Grier stars as Flower Child Coffin, a nurse who’s had enough of the destruction that dope-pushers and their poison leave in their wake. Using her seductive charm, Coffy takes the fight directly to the men responsible for destroying the lives of her family and friends. Will she succeed? Is that Sid Haig in red hotpants?! Witness Robert DoQui as pimp King George before becoming one of Detroit’s finest, and scar-faced trick Carol Locatell’s road to witness protection that lead directly to Imposter Voorhees! This is the end of the line for these drug dealing scum, and revenge is going to be just as sweet as a chocolate bar, because all of them are gonna pay by way of Coffy and the wrong end of a gun!

4.1 Petey Wheatstraw, the Devil’s Son-In-Law

We’re sliding into Season 4 with a happenin’ trip through the period where a subgenre of films were defined. Comedy legend Rudy Ray Moore does battle against the man downstairs–and we aren’t talking about Richard Moll! After meeting his demise at the hands of rival club owners Leroy and Skillet, superstar comedian Petey Wheatstraw is offered a second chance by the dubiously named Lou Cipher. Petey makes a deal with the devil and is granted incredible satanic powers via magick pimp cane to enact his revenge. However, in exchange he must marry Lou’s demonic daughter who’s so ugly she could scare a bulldog off a meat truck–and we ain’t lyin’ either! So sit down and shut your ugly, old-time, ancient-ass up and witness the legend of Petey Wheatstraw, The Devil’s Son in Law!

The Legend of Gator Face-mentary

Our first feature length commentary track! Danny and Phil just can’t seem to keep out of trouble in their sleepy, backwater town. After running out of ideas, the boys create an alligator-man costume to prank the local townsfolk into thinking a local legend is real. Scaring the shit out of the yokels turns out to be a bit more than they bargained for when the plantation owning mayor and his wife call in the National Guard to handle the situation. Now, with their very lives on the line, Danny and Phil need to try and fix what they started at the expense of a benign miracle of nature. So pull up a log, mind the gator-man dong, hide your marshmallows, and crack a cold one because the Dumpster trio are headed to Vernon, Florida to see if it’s true what they say about The Legend of Face!
