Dinner for Fiends: Occupy Two and a Half

Dinner for Fiends: Occupy Two and a HalfAt long, long, long, long, long, long, long last… Dinner for Fiends has returned with a two-hour epic-sized edition with a lot of ground to cover jam-packed with spoiler-riffic discussions of the last three months of horror movie and television and all the sniping and snarking you love or hate or love to hate.

Yeah, we’re really late with this show. But we all have good excuses. Fini and I both got hit with hurricanes in the time since the last show. Uncle Creepy’s appendix exploded and nearly killed him. Buz and Andrew, well, they don’t really have any excuses. Since we haven’t done one since September, we have a whole lot of ground to cover. How much ground? Here are just a few of the topics we either briefly touch upon or discuss in-depth (i.e., heavy spoilers):

Bait 3D
Resident Evil: Retribution 3D
Dredd 3D
House at the End of the Street
Hotel Transylvania
Beyond the Black Rainbow
Paranormal Activity 4
Silent Hill: Revelations 3D
Among Friends
The Bay
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

Plus, the new seasons of “The Walking Dead”, “Supernatural”, and “American Horror Story” are debated.

A super-sized edition of Dinner For Fiends that is as spirited as it is overdue, particularly when we get to Paranormal Activity 4 and… well… you’ll just have to listen for yourself.

    "Love" is a bit strong, I'd give it about a 3/5. I agree about the teeth and the backstory, that was pretty awful, but it meant Christopher Lee was on screen, which blunted the horribleness.

    I don't think children are the sole bad guys in the book. In my reading of the book, Willy Wonka is built up as this God-like figure, and as Charlie makes his way through the factory, you realize that his god is nothing more than a sadistic, fucked-up, overgrown child. (Prometheus!) If you really stop and think about the story, Willy Wonka is pretty much one step removed from Jigsaw. I thought the Burton movie did a really good job of capturing that. I could have done without the backstory and Wonka's redemption, but whatever.

    I didn't hate the production design, or the Burton aesthetic. There are many movies of his I have not seen, so maybe if I watched all of them, I'd start to hate it, I don't know. I did like the music, and Deep Roy as all of the Oompa Loompas, fwiw.

    The only Burton movie I've seen that I unreservedly love is Ed Wood.

    Man if you guys liked Retribution, you should pay me twenty bucks to jingle keys in front of your face for ninety minutes. You'd probably be just as impressed.

    P.S. Glad Creepy didn't die. Seriously. I hope you live to see a hundred.

    The MP3 version of this is saying it's corrupted. Any chance for a re-upload?

    It's still being weird with some programs, but the re-upload works with Quicktime, so I can listen to it. Thanks!
