Going into this edition of Dinner for Fiends, we were all thinking there wouldn’t be much territory to cover. Turns out there was actually much more to talk about than we expected. Of course all conversations were sandwiched between the usual nonsense.
On the menu today… The Possession, The Apparition, V/H/S, Cosmopolis, Total Recall, Juan of the Dead, Detention, YellowBrickRoad, Premium Rush, The Oogieloves, and the misadventures of a mystery movie shopper, just to name a few of topics we discuss.
Now the bad news… You ever been working on something and just get the sense that the vibe is all wrong? That’s how we were throughout this entire recording. By the end we were all convinced that this episode is going to go down in history as one of the worst ever. Buz was in a bad mood from the beginning and just seemed to be trolling the rest of us at times. Matt Fini was his usual mellow self though still quite bitter about the space baby. Andrew Kasch actually managed to stick around for most of the show but had little to contribute a lot of the time since he hadn’t seen anything but the newest Cronenberg flick that isn’t even horror. Me, I just wanted my money back from Uncle Creepy after he talked me into seeing The Apparition: better believe that got contentious.
So in addition to the sniping and bad mojo, there were also numerous technical issues (most of which have probably been edited out) and an overwhelming sense the whole show was going down in flames like the Hindenburg. Because we were so sure this Dinner for Fiends came out bad, I’m convinced it’s going to be one that you the listeners end up enjoying immensely. It just seems to work out that way.
Enjoy! Hopefully. And don’t worry, we know this one sucked so we’re recording another this week to make up for it! Sorry for the delay. It’s as if all the forces in the universe conspired to not bring you guys this show. But here it is… for better or worse.

Dinner for Fiends: Mother, May I Sleep with Fiends?
Another installment of Dinner for Fiends so soon? But how can this be? It hasn’t been 6 months to 2 years yet! This isn’t right at all.
The gang’s back together so soon for another spirited episode of mindless internet horror-themed gobbledygook. Minus Buz, that is. He was off being Mr. Hollywood or something that day, so expect 90% less “Supernatural” discussion this episode.
Uncle Creepy, myself, Andrew Kasch, and Matt Serafini were freestyling this one, babbling aimlessly about whatever topic any of us wanted to bring up.
Matt Serafini was feeling especially grouchy this edition so you’ll hear quite a bit about how he felt The Conjuring 2 was repetitive and boring, The Boy outright sucks, and 10 Cloverfield Lane was ruined by its ending. On the positive side, he really liked Lifetime’s lesbian vampire flick Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?
Other random topics include just what in the bloody hell is going on with the new Friday the 13th movie, AMC’s “Preacher,” Creepy’s love for CBS’s “Braindead” (which may already be cancelled by the time you read this), Andrew’s latest escapades with a certain Halloween cult that will ultimately lead to his and Buz’s mutual destruction, and my reading of a list of the best/worst dog movie pitches of all time.
It’s all about Woofies, folks.
Dinner for Fiends – The Fiends Awaken
There has been an awakening. The fiends have awakened. Creepy, Fini, Andrew, Foy, and (eventually) Buz have risen from the grave for the long overdue return of Dinner for Fiends.
It’s been so long since the last DFF we didn’t even bother trying to recap all the movies we’ve missed out on. You realize how many that would be? This show would be 12 hours long. That might make some of our listeners happy. Us, not so much.
What do we discuss? A little bit of everything and a whole lot of nothing. In other words, your typical DFF.
A few topics we hit upon include:
- What everyone’s been up to during the show’s hiatus
- Sought after horror movie director’s cuts
- The Halloween cult stalking Buz, Andrew, and Creepy
- “The Walking Dead”
- “Bates Motel”
- “Hannibal’s” ending
- Batman v Superman
- The upcoming Universal Monsters shared universe
- The Ghostbusters reboot becoming this generation’s Bobby Riggs vs. Billie Jean King
And much, much more over the course of two hours.
So listen up, Dreadites, because who knows when the Fiends will gather again for the next installment!
Dinner for Fiends – Refriended: Can You Hear Me?!?
Hey, Steve Wood! Yeah, you! You’re like the It Follows of DFF fans. Here’s your stinking Dinner for Fiends! Happy now? Go listen to it on a loop, and leave us the hell alone! You hear me? Stop stalking us!
For the rest of you, you might be asking yourself, “Dinner for Fiends? What’s that?” You’ve probably forgotten because it has been so long. It’s this mindless podcast where Creepy and Foy yell at one another while Matt Fini calmly proclaims his love for some obscure arthouse horror movie you’d never sit through. Alas, we have had to recast a few roles. The role of Buz is now played by Jinx, and the role of Andrew Kasch’s call-dropping iPhone is also now played by Jinx.
It’s been so long since the last Dinner for Fiends I don’t even remember when it was. On the plus side, we really haven’t missed that much. On the negative side, that we haven’t missed much speaks volumes about the current state of horror.
So what do we have to catch up on?
- A very in-depth discussion of “Bates Motel.”
- The latest season of “The Walking Dead.”
- The scene-chewing insanity of “Salem.”
- The Lazarus Effect.
- Matt’s hatred for superhero movies.
- Jinx’s connection problems.
Topping it all off is the great It Follows debate of 2015, culminating in a surprise twist that would even blow M. Night Shyamalan’s mind. Listen to see if you can spot the exact moment Matt Fini’s head exploded.
Last but not least, I ramble like a lunatic explaining why Roar is the best horror movie of 2015 despite not being from this year nor specifically a horror movie.
Unfortunately, we recorded this show right before the release of Mad Max: Fury Road so you don’t get to hear the one movie we would all be in unanimous agreement over. However, I have determined what our names would be in the wasteland world of George Miller’s masterwork:
Jinx’s Mad Max name would be Ritor Blockus.
Matt would become Cannon the Go-Go Boy.
Oddly enough, Uncle Creepy would still be Uncle Creepy.
And yours truly, Foywonder, would for some reason be known by the moniker Moist the Soothing.
You’ve waited this long. Wait no more. Dinner for Fiends lives once more. See you again in 16 months, suckers!
