Ep. 04-03: Return of the Living Dead (1985)

When foreman, Frank (James Karen), shows new employee, Freddy (Thom Mathews), a secret military experiment in their supply warehouse, the two accidentally release a gas that reanimates corpses into brain-eating zombies. As the pandemic spreads to a neighboring cemetery, the creatures begin to satisfy their hunger in creative and intelligent ways. Frank and Freddy fight to survive the onslaught with the help of their boss (Clu Gulager) a mysterious mortician (Don Calfa), and Freddy’s punk rock friends.

Return of the Living Dead (1985) is one of those rare movies that probably shouldn’t work but it does in every way. It’s an unofficial sequel to Night of the Living Dead (1968) from John Russo, George Romero’s former collaborator. It’s comedic, has a punk rock soundtrack, and it changes the rules set up in the original 60s classic. However, with a talented cast, clever script, and gruesome effects, this production delivers the goods, giving us a film that has not only spawned sequels but is rightly heralded as an 80s classic. Join us as we discuss the history of this film and its somewhat unusual evolution. Listen as Johnny Has the Keys barricades the doors and windows, defending ourselves from zombies that not only talk but whose sole purpose is to EAT OUR BRAINS!

The Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet—Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment… and Thanos defeats them, destroying half of humanity. Years later, the remaining Avengers unite once again to reverse things and bring back their vanquished allies for an epic showdown with Thanos.

Episode 40 Avengers: Infinity War & Endgame

This is our season three finale and what an incredible one it is. Marvel is a much more common word these days than the comics we grew up with, anyway. Their legacy now extends to the paradigm of superhero movies and rightly so. Most of them are fantastic… and this two-part Avengers movie is the current crown jewel of them all. Join us for this double-sized episode, where we discuss the decade-long, twenty-one film arc that got us here. Listen as Johnny Has the Keys goes full-force superhero with a remarkable ensemble cast, state-art special FX, and writing equally powerful. Avengers assemble!
