3.21 Body Melt

The grill is cooling off and we’re breaking out the peach cobbler and watermelon! As our GARB-BQ winds down, we’re headed back to Australia for some goopy ozploitation goodness! Let your body learn, let your body build, let your Body Melt? When “pharmaceutical” company Vimuville™ begins using the residents of Pebbles Court as lab rats for a new supplement, things start to get really gross. As the hapless civilians each take the dangerous drug through various means, their bodies begin to destroy themselves from the inside out. We’ve got blood, boogers and more totally unwanted bodily fluids in this stomach turning classic. We also muse about Gary Busey’s favorite food, who really is the best movie villain of all time, if Vimuville is indeed a shell company for Umbrella—SPOILERS: IT IS, and our very own Dobby “The MDU Doormat” gets #swole. Joining in on the madness today is special guest, Jenna Fryer! Squeeze into your jogging suit, shoot down that fizzy vitamin drink, and crank up the Deep Purple, because we’re about to work it out with Body Melt!

You can support Jenna and her work over at the KillerWolf Films patreon!

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!

3.14 Uninvited (1987)

What do you do when you find a mutant cat living inside of a regular cat? First, you should hope the mutant cat isn’t hiding an even smaller mutant cat inside of it. Next, you probably SHOULDN’T isolate yourselves on a yacht with a sociopathic Wall Street criminal. Fortunately for us, that’s exactly what happens in this movie! Five partygoers on spring break find themselves stranded in the middle of the ocean with rich scumbags, Alex Cord and George Kennedy, as a poisonous and morally ambiguous cat wreaks havoc on them while cackling from the shadows. Will the hapless humans survive or will the cat dish out it’s own kind of Final Justice™? Put in your false teeth, break out the champagne & corn flakes, and shout out a hearty ‘FOOP’, because we’re chartering the ‘Slam Dunk’ to climb aboard Greydon Clark’s Uninvited!

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!
