4.20 Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers
Trick or Trash returns from the grave as we slash into the month with Dr. Death of the MDU himself, Sam Loomis! We've finally taken the dive, Dumpster Dwellers! We bring you the finale of the Cult of Thorn timeline–SIX TIMES the terror, SIX TIMES the fear, SIX TIMES the thrills!?After the events of Halloween 5, Michael Myers is broken out of jail Fratelli style and whisked away to the Thorn Cult Clubhouse residing in the dingy depths of Smith's Grove Sanitarium. After giving birth to the last of the Myers bloodline, Jamie Lloyd (NOT Danielle Harris) tries to make her escape from the clutches of both Michael and the Thorn Cult. Before being dispatched by (Enter Villain's Name Here) she hides the baby boy from the same fate she cannot escape. It's now up to retired-back-on-the-beat Dr. Sammy 'Six Times' Loomis, Tommy 'Paul Stephen Rudd' Doyle, and a woman only tangentially connected to the characters of previous films to crack the case–possibly using magic, possibly foiling Umbrella's B.O.W program, and possibly putting an end to the evil of Samhain once and for all!Comparing the Theatrical Cut and the Producer's Cut, we're taking you on a full, no pumpkins barred journey through the Halloween franchise with highlights on 4 and 5, to try and make sense of this train wreck of a timeline. So, hop on the Haddonfield Express for SIX TIMES the writers, SIX TIMES the plot holes, and SIX TIMES the confusion while we try and carve a semblance of rationality in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers!Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/moviedumpster)

Half man, half wolf, total terror! After having a run in with a werewolf in the jungles of Borneo, Uncle Ted (Michael Paré) returns to the states having been unable to cure himself of his lycanthropy.

Things of course don’t go according to plan and Uncle Ted finds himself barking up the wrong tree and face-to-face with the mighty pack protector, Thor.Director Eric Red brings to life arguably the best werewolf ever put to film by way of Steve Johnson and Bill Corso, in an excellent adaptation of Wayne Smith’s novel. Joining us is C.B. Smith from ‘Taking a Page’ and our ongoing sub-series ‘Book to the Movie’ to shed some light on the novel ‘Thor’ and how it stacks up for a wild werewolf bar mitzvah of an episode!Grab your maximum-security high-tempered steel handcuffs and make sure to lock yourself up before sundown, because every moon is a Bad Moon!Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/moviedumpster)

4.6 Double Dragon
Round 1 of our 'Super Kombat Fighter: Double Dumpster Edition Turbo' month kicks off with a movie based on an animated series that's based on a video game! Robert Patrick attains one half of a mystical medallion that allows him to magically turn into a shadow and possess people, but he needs the other half to attain ultimate power. The rest of the medallion is held by two teenage brothers that practice martial arts, one thoughtful and the other reckless, and one only wears blue while the other only wears red. Their names? Leonardo and Raphael...uh, we mean Billy and Jimmy Lee! It's up to them to stop the T-1000 and his army of mooks, including Michael Berryman, Huey Lewis and the News, the mutated vesiculated nutsack Bane Abobo, and a literal mailman going postal. With the help of Alyssa Milano and egregious shots of her ass, they just might be able to combine the power of body and soul to overcome all odds. Hop in the Dragon Wagon, suck down some special spinach slop, and make sure to wave to Sly and Dennis while you're visiting Koopa-City One, because we're burning rubber and roundhouse kicking our way through Double Dragon!Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/moviedumpster)

In the woods across from the old campgrounds where Gunnar Hansen battled giant mosquitoes, Clint Howard is using some of Farmer Spivey’s secret ingredient to help his latest batch of super weed grow faster. A barrel of toxic waste spills carelessly through the floor onto some arachnid eggs, causing them to multiply in size and hatch into giant, blood-sucking parasites. But don’t panic—we’ve got Alfonso Ribeiro and Seth Green here to squash them! With an angry reincarnated Hesse from Demonic Toys out for revenge against Charnetski the Brown, some mutated eight-legged freaks seem like the least of their problems! Then there’s those strange science experiments Wayne Szalinski was talking into a tape recorder about—something about a Necronomicon he found in the basement of the cabin or whatever?

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!

The American adaption nobody asked for! Nat Wolff whines a lot and kills people with a magic notebook he gets from the Green Goblin, while Lakeith Stanfield squats on everyone's furniture and eats candy. Overstuffed, underdeveloped, and unwelcome, summon your Shinigami and for the love of God put our names in the Death Note.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/moviedumpster)
