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!

M02 Michael Ray Bower

We hope everyone wasn’t too spooked by our latest episode, The Willies, because we’re serving up a 2-part companion piece! We had the pleasure of chatting with “Fly Boy” himself, Michael Ray Bower, about his entire career as well as taking a peek behind the tent flap of his starring segment. So, grab a 10-piece bucket of Tennessee Fricassee Chicken™ and pull up a sleeping bag because we’re about to have a campfire convo so big we had to split it in two!

3.12 The Willies

Gather ’round the campfire with Mikey from The Goonies™, as he weaves a tapestry of spooky tales! We roll into our first anthology film and bump into wayward Twin Peaks residents, adolescent bullies, a suspiciously friendly janitor, and a boy with a gut-churning obsession with flies. Connor gets emotional about rat violence, we talk about the infamous & unforgettable ‘ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter’ ride at Disney, and we all wonder what exactly our folks were recording on extended-play tapes back in the ’90s. Pluck a few of Farmer Spivey’s mutated veggies, set that poodle in the microwave for three minutes, and try not to pee your pants, because we’re about to get a serious case of The Willies!

3.4 A Very Unlucky Leprechaun

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. So, slop some corned beef on a plate, slurp down that Shamrock Shake™, and kiss your lucky rabbit’s foot, because you’re going to need all the luck you can get while we receive a mystical flogging from A Very Unlucky Leprechaun!

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.

2.32 Prancer

Merry Christmas? Trashing Through the Snow returns with a joyless, depressing alternate timeline where the holidays are filled with blue collar suffering and sad, sunken-eyed adults. Join us as we follow little Jessica Riggs, who attempts to nurse an injured reindeer back to health because she’s convinced it’s one of Santa’s eight loyal reindeer. Is the reindeer really magical? Does this movie ever convey the spirit of Christmas? Do reindeer really sound like a screaming, pitch-shifted Sam Worthington? Will Charnetski the Brown ever leave Granny Van Daam’s sex dungeon? Feed a reindeer five pounds of Christmas cookies, write an incriminating letter to Santa, and pray to God your orchard turns around, because we’re about to fall headfirst out of a tree onto Prancer!
