3.24 The Wraith

In a canyon town somewhere in the Midwest, Packard Walsh rules the open road with a gang of degenerates and tweakers. The literal ghost of the gang’s past begins to terrorize them, taking the form of a black clad racer with a grudge. Has one of Packard’s victims returned for vengeance? Is it Emilio Estevez? Has Randy Quaid EVER been this boring?! Oh and Clint Howard’s back with a Ben 10™ device strapped to his wrist. Buckle your seat belts, because we’re hopping in John Hurt’s car and taking a trip through the speed force with special guest Arlen Harrow! Long before he was “winning”, talking about having tiger blood, or committing any of the other heinous human rights violations he’s known for, Charlie Sheen was simply known as The Wraith!

Check out Arlen’s podcasts Los Harrow and The Phantom Zone!

3.23 The Dungeonmaster

The terror of Esteban rages on! Computer programming wizard and possible super soldier Paul Bradford gets trapped in a battle for not only his soul, but also his girlfriend Gwen’s, against Satan himself aka Richard Moll. To keep things fair, the man downstairs lets Paul keep his reality bending Power Glove™ that is powered by his custom AI, the X-CaliBR8. This literal Omni-tool can not only hack an ATM, but also fire a laser on command, conjure a massive spectral dragon, and even pleasure Paul if he so chooses! The devil went down to Silicon Valley for the ultimate showdown between magic and technology. Oh, and Dungeons & Dragons…or something? We’re bringing you another movie from the Charles Band universe, with this pseudo anthology directed by some of our favorites including David Allen, John Carl Buechler, and even Peter Manoogian! We also take a deep dive into a potential MDU remake of Ghostbusters. So put on your Google Glass, call Blackie Lawless, and crank up that W.A.S.P., because we’re rolling some polyhedral dice and trying to hit a natural 20 with The Dungeonmaster!

3.20 Munchie

Break out the macaroni and potato salad, because the hot dogs are about ready to come off the grill! The GARB-BQ continues with some Chuck E. Cheese™ nightmare fuel! Long before there were Demonic Toys or the Hugga Bunch, there existed an all-powerful creature older than time itself. Calamity followed it wherever it went, leaving countless lives destroyed and entire civilizations in ruins. Finally, the prophetic wrecking ball was sealed in a magic crate and tossed into a bottomless abyss to dwell with Lubdan and Kazaam. The immortal miscreant was meant to never be seen or heard from again…that is, until young Gage Dobson finds the box and opens it without a second thought. As a way of thanks for releasing him, Gage’s new friend uses powers beyond human comprehension to make any of Gage’s wildest dreams come true! So naturally he steals a pizza, enacts some petty revenge, and throws a party. Join us on our journey as we meet Jennifer Love Hewitt in her debut role, catch up with Bernie Lomax: ReAnimator, and reveal the true mastermind behind the Winter Stepfather program! We also decide which horror series antagonist our titular Dom DeLuise voiced character would replace in the MDU. Hop on that flying pizza, dream a little day dream, and update your standup material, because we are about to party ’til we perish with Munchie!

3.11 The Meteor Man

Unassuming substitute teacher Jefferson Reed is struck by a very Kryptonian looking meteorite, blessing him with amazing and inconsistent superpowers! Jefferson must now use his newfound abilities to defend his neighborhood from the Golden Lords™, a gang of bleach blonde haired criminals consisting of suit-wearing babies, Don Cheadle, Kung-Fu Larry, and the Riddler! Can Jefferson succeed against all odds? Does this sound a little too much like DC’s Black Lightning? Will James Earl Jones ever find the perfect wig? Find all the answers to these questions and more, as we take a deep dive into the first black superhero movie! Slip into your homemade super suit, say hello to Sinbad, and please avoid the Jello™, because we’re taking to the skies for The Meteor Man!

3.9 House II: The Second Story

Our Quaran-Team Up with Slashers Podcast comes to a close! Ignoring the original film, Roger Cobb and Norm from ‘Cheers’ are replaced by two bumbling idiots, their undead prospector Gramps, and Cliff…the OTHER guy from ‘Cheers.’ They soon find out the house doubles as an Aztec temple when portals to other dimensions start opening all around it. The only way to close them? A Crystal Skull™ that is constantly stolen by random dimension-hopping denizens, but is also craved by a zombie-ghost cowboy named Slim Razor who has a bone to pick with Gramps? Bill Maher also shows up to be a total dink. So throw your friend a surprise Halloween party, dig up your mummified grandpappy, and feed your caterpuppy a nice baby bottle full of beer, because we’re climbing the stairs to House II: The Second Story!

Joining us is special guest, Jake, from Slashers Podcast!

3.6 Shakes The Clown

Happy April Fools Day! We hope you’re not still burned by our Jurassic Park episode last year, but we can assure you that this episode IS NOT a loop of Jeff Goldblum laughing. Instead, we bring you unbridled clown debauchery! Depressed alcoholic party clown, Bobcat Goldthwait’s Shakes, is framed for killing his boss by Tom Kenny’s The Joker™, so he teams up with Adam Sandler and Blake Clark (who are also clowns) to clear his name. Basically, everyone in this movie is a clown, including our guest Rudy Reel! Bake up a custard pie, top off your favorite flask, and get ready to hurl, because we’re juggling our way into Shakes the Clown.

Joining us is special guest, Rudy Reel of Lucky Duck Entertainment and O-Street Mini Golf!

For the love of Rawhead, it’s a St. Paddy’s Day special! Join us as we take a trip down the ol’ wishing well to Ireland and find ourselves a four-leaf clover. Warwick Davis returns to the role of a leprechaun once again for a magical journey involving a neglected little girl, her horrible father, a drunken Irishman, and a talking sex toy.

2.35 Season Two Finale

Dread it, run from it…Season 3 arrives just the same. In time you will know what it’s like to watch Pluto Nash…or Elves. To feel so desperately like you want to pull a bag over your own head like in Black Christmas. The hardest choices require the strongest wills, but we made it through 2019 and nobody got turned into dust or killed by an anti-matter wave. Do we feel good about our choices? Did we change our minds? Did Granny Van Daam run away with 2019 or will she play second fiddle to a growing roster of MDU wizards? So grab literally anything from this year’s trash heap and get cozy on this brand spankin’ New Year’s day as we reflect on Movie Dumpster season 2! Cue flashback sequence.

2.30 Terminator: Salvation

Welcome to the future Sarah Connor tried warning us about and we aren’t talking about T3. In the bleak, post Judgment Day world, an adult John Connor is a Resistance fighter in the war against the Machines. Elsewhere, condemned stranger Marcus Wright awakens inside a Skynet facility with no memory of how he got there and seemingly no knowledge of the global destruction carried out by Skynet. Will their paths converge? Will Arnold Schwarzenegger make a forced cameo? Is Christian Bale the savior of not only humanity, but of the MDU?! Can Sam Worthington believably scream on camera? All these questions might be answered in our very special Terminator episode of Movie Dumpster. Forget your clothes, your boots and your motorcycles, because we’re about to nakedly time travel into the inevitable future of Terminator: Salvation!

2.25 Green Lantern

Our final Blockbuster Bomb lands right on Ryan Reynolds’ head, in the super hero movie flop that was meant to kick off the DCCU. A few lazy ideas lifted from Geoff Johns’ modern take on Hal Jordan, result in an overstuffed, convoluted mess of a plot. CGI body suits and Star Sapphire’s depiction are not the only mortal sins of this 2011 adaptation. Slip on your power ring of choice and join us in our intergalactic journey through Space Sector 2814, this is the Green Lantern!

Joining us is special guest, Arlen Harrow! Editor-in-chief of Los Harrow and co-host of the Phantom Zone.

2.24 The 13th Warrior

Arabian poet, Antonio Banderas, fools around with the caliph’s wife and gets promoted to lord of the dessert. During his trek, he runs afoul of a Viking camp where Granny Van Daam dubs him the 13th warrior of a quest that will lead to certain death. Now he must band together with a rough-and-tumble group of lovable bearded bad-asses to defend a village from a (seemingly) unstoppable supernatural force. Brush up on your old Norse, ask the smithy to fashion you a scimitar, and grab a piece of your fallen comrade to munch on because we’re about to crack open the lost ancient text of The 13th Warrior.

From the banality ridden heap of our Blockbuster Bombs fallout rises a film that should have been shot into the sun.

2.21 Reign of Fire

Decades ago, humans delved too greedily and too deep into Moria and awoke the dragon Paarthurnax from its slumber. Following Judgment Day, Christian Bale leads the last vestiges of humankind against a storm of dragons that just want to watch the world burn. Only dragon slayer Matthew “Van Zan” McConaughey and his small army of rootin’-tootin’ Americans can shift the odds in humanity’s favor. Ready your magnesium-tipped C4 crossbow bolts, wait until the magic hour, and join Gerard Butler in archangel falling 17 seconds from the sky into Reign of Fire!

2.12 Howard the Duck

Howard is just your average anthropomorphic duck living on a parallel Earth—aptly named Duckworld. That is, until Dr. Jeffrey Jones foolishly uses the Buch-cannon™ to beam him to Cleveland. Stranded, Howard teams up with local rocker Lea Thompson and Tim “Museum Janitor” Robbins to search for a way home, and possibly some hairless ape fornication. Oh yeah, then Jeffrey Jones gets possessed by a demonic “Dark Overlord of the Universe” that turns him into Emperor Palpatine for some reason! Practice your Quack Fu, do some toot, and grab this month’s issue of Playduck, because we are about to get shot through space via Lazyboy with Howard the Duck.

2.10 Bunraku

Dreadlocked Ron Pearlman rules post-apocalyptic feudal Neo Japan, where guns are banned and everyone knows martial arts, with an iron fist. Drifter Josh Hartnet and samurai Gackt walk into a bar and meet the one person central to the plot, soliloquizing bartender and pop-up funny enthusiast, Woody Harrelson. Together, they lead a revolution of chimney sweepers against an army of redshirts and Kevin McKidd. Grab your grandpa’s medallion, a fifty-five dollar glass of whiskey, and cock those fist guns, because this ain’t no ordinary puppet show—it’s BUNRAKU!

2.8 Jurassic Park

Meet John Hammond, an old man who doesn’t know what to do with his fortune, so he decides to clone some dino DNA and open a theme park. He flies in power couple and dinosaur experts, Sam Neil and Laura Dern, along with chaos theorist, Jeff Goldblum, and a blood-sucking lawyer to prove to his investors that the park is completely safe. Once there, everything goes to shit, after a disgruntled Newman shuts all the power off on the island, so that he can steal some T-Rex blood for the competition. With prehistoric powerhouses roaming free, can life, uh, find a way?

1.26 The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course

CRIKEY! Steve Irwin is just trying to make a documentary about all the dangerous and beautiful wildlife of Australia, and then a bunch of studio execs tell him no one is going to pay for that, so they make up a shitty story about a top secret satellite that gets eaten by a crocodile. With pointless side plots, a lost fifth Baldwin brother, and the Bumpuses dogs, two completely different films collide into a true blunder from down under. Grab your best sheila, a couple sticks of dynamite, and some anti-venom because we are about to bag and tag The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course.
