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!

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!

3.35 Season 3 Wrap-up LIVE

Welcome to our first ever live event!

So pull up a trash can lid, crack open a cold one, and join us in the titular Movie Dumpster for our Season Three Finale!

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”!

Joining us on this episode is special guest, Julie Lockwood!

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!

3.29 Of Unknown Origin

Peter Weller is a rich Wall Street businessman with a loving family, a beautiful home, and a lucrative job. All of that is uprooted when GVD’s aggressive pet rat begins a blood feud with Weller, leaving his brownstone in ruins and his mind shattered. Plagued by sleep deprivation and a drinking problem, Weller descends into madness and builds a Devon’s Ghost bat to do mortal combat with the groundhog-sized rodent. Let’s just say he isn’t using your grandma’s mouse traps! We also talk about some of our favorite albums and TV shows growing up, plus we’ve got special guest Tony from Hack the Movies returning to the show! Lace up those cleats, crack open the J&B, and flood your basement, ’cause we’re about to get wet and wild with a creature Of Unknown Origin!

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!

3.19 Robot Jox

The GARB-BQ sizzles on with some frosty post-nuclear goodness! Following a nuclear apocalypse, the surviving American Market and Russian Confederation are constantly competing for resources and territory. After banning war, the next logical step for settling disputes was OBVIOUSLY through one-on-one giant mech fights! We follow the Jox, the people piloting these massive machines in mortal combat. There’s our hero Achilles, ace pilot and nine time winner, his mentor Tex, a drunk Texan with a secret (he’s not a spy though), Athena, the test tubie at the top of her class, and the Confederate pilot Alexander, a complete psychopath and Achilles’ rival. Who will walk away with the victory for their faction? Why do all the tubies have a Jedi padawan haircut? Are we all just living in the CharNatrix? Plus, we decide if any American-made mech could possibly stand up to the power of a Gundam! Heat up that singular hotdog for your whole family, pour one out for Dak Ralter, and grab a seat with the bleacher bums because we’re about to crash and burn with Robot Jox!

3.18 Razorback

Grab yourself a cold one and throw some pork chops on the grill, Movie Dumpster’s GARB-BQ has officially begun! Our first delicious morsel of the month comes straight to you from the Australian Outback. After a massive wild hog charges through his house like a fireball and eats his grandson, Jake Cullen makes it his life’s work to find the aberration and destroy it. Two years later, American wildlife reporter Beth Winters arrives to investigate Toecutter’s gang. Soon the beast resurfaces and only “Jesus Wept” Jake, his daughter “Oracle” Sarah, and Beth’s husband “I’ll Grieve When I’m Dead” Carl, can stand against not only The Acolytes, but the hulking man-eater too! We also pick our teams for a potential tornado tag match versus John Hurt, Granny Van Daam, and Daniel Baldwin. Plus, Gunnar the White gives us a breakdown of his former life in the Sawyer family, Steve Irwin and Simon Bossell stop by to say g’day, and Haggerty the Blue’s brother from down under makes their debut! So wake up from Richard Stanley’s nightmare, climb out of a mineshaft, and drive your War Rig on over to Gas Town, because we’re hunting down Razorback!

3.17 Orca (1977)

A happy couple have their world destroyed when a greedy drunk attacks their home and leaves a mother dead, along with her unborn fetus. The father survives and makes the misery and death of the one who ruined his life the only thing that can satiate his vengeance…all told from the viewpoint of a killer whale! Captain Nolan played by Richard ‘Dumbledore Prime’ Harris tries everything in his power to avoid coming to blows with his aquatic adversary, even as the whale destroys the town around him. Bo Derek and Will Sampson also come along for the ride because our journey wouldn’t be complete without a damsel in distress and a Native American stereotype! C.B. Smith from ‘Taking a Page’ joins us to talk about the differences between the novel and the film and OH BOY, are they plentiful! Break out the circus peanuts, headbutt a Jaws™ into oblivion, and lead your nemesis toward their icy grave, because we’re breaching into Orca!
