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!

Check out C.B. Smith’s channel, ‘Taking a Page’.

3.15 Deathdream (1974)

THE NIGHT HE CAME HOME! Happy 4th of July, Dumpster Dwellers! Following our Black Christmas episode last season, we bring you the Bob Clark horror classic that inspired it. After receiving word that her son Andy has been killed in Vietnam, a grieving mother stresses the universe into instantaneously resurrecting him. Be careful of what you wish for though, because that boy ain’t right! Cold, emotionless, and sadistic, the Andy his family and friends knew didn’t make it out of the war. We dive headfirst into uncomfortable topics like family drama, the horrors of war and the people who come back from it, and how exactly a father could screw up so badly. Uh…Happy 4th! Is Andy a Revenant? Is Quan Chi behind this? Will Dr. Loomis finally be of any use? Find out by pulling up a rocking chair and join us in the dead of night for Deathdream!

3.13 The Stepfather (1987)

Make room for daddy⁠—it’s a Stepfather’s Day special! Terry O’Quinn is a mild-mannered all-American dad with traditional ‘Leave It to Beaver’ values and a penchant for murder. A master of disguise, Terry dices up the families he ingrains himself in for minor infractions and disappears without a trace, only to repeat the cycle with another vulnerable family. Now married to widowed Shelley Hack, things start falling apart when his troubled stepdaughter, Jill Schoelen, begins researching his past because nobody that realized Mr. Ed wasn’t actually a horse that could talk until high school is sane. With a rogue therapist and the vigilante known as ‘The Discipliner’ hot on his trail, it’s only a matter of time before the Stepfather™ is backed into a corner asking, “Who am I here?” Slip on your flannel jacket, throw your suitcase full of evidence into the ocean, and whistle a little Camptown Races, because we’re moving in with The Stepfather!

Welcome to Pottsville, Idaho! A place where unsafe nuclear waste disposal is okay, but smut must be swept away!

He just might need a little help from Martin Landau and a Gnome named Gnorm.

3.3 Aberration (1997)

Pamela Gidley flees her criminal Russian stereotype of an ex to her family’s dilapidated cabin in the freezing northwest. Unfortunately, man-eating geckos have been using her house as a breeding ground and, as Worf repeatedly reminds us, they’ve adapted. Wisecracking field researcher Simon Bossell and Dobby the house-elf join Pamela in a battle to see how many explosions they can walk away from without looking. Put on some protective eyewear, fill up your Super Soaker™ with expired poison, and keep your eyes peeled for skittering reptiles, because we’re about to get knocked to the bottom of the food chain by Aberration!

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.
