What's your favorite scary movie? So far (and for this year, at least), our answer is the 2022 Scream. We love the references, the "requel" term, the triumphant return of "Red Right Hand" and the #forWes return to brutality. This movie is a love letter to fans and that love is very requited. NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. We discuss it v…
 
We chose a double feature based on religious horror and found an accidentally perfect pairing. Both deal with the result of unprocessed trauma and its impact on religion (in Saint Maud, it leads to a powerful attachment to an offshoot of Catholicism and God; in The Vigil, it led to a renunciation of faith from a formerly Orthodox Jewish man) and wh…
 
So this past year's been really fun, huh? Very calm, very chill, very full of excellent movies! (Well, at least that last one's true.) Join us as we break down the best of the year and what we're excited for in 2022. (And uh, "break down" may be putting it mildly.) NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. Next week, we'll be discussing St. Maud (a…
 
We know we said that we were going to do Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser 2, but we are rapidly approaching Christmas and, since neither of us are feeling festive or jolly, we thought maybe some holiday-themed movies would help. So that's how we came to watch the other four Silent Night Deadly Night movies. And the remake. And Christmas Evil (j…
 
Jason Klamm joined us for a fun chat about Day of the Dead and Land of the Dead! We're all fans of George Romero's and the way that the series succeeds as horror movies and as allegories. What we weren't necessarily expecting? Just how well they also work as metaphor for life in a pandemic. Links Mentioned: Watch The Last House on Dead End Street: …
 
We know we said that we were going to discuss Freaks and Nightbreed, but it turns out that those are maybe not the movies we felt like watching and discussing. Instead, we decided maybe it was time to spread some holiday cheer. But then we were remembered we were us, so instead, we chose to discuss Silent Night Deadly Night and Black Christmas! NOT…
 
Is there a better horror pairing than Fright Night and The Lost Boys? That's what we're discussing today and both are easily two of Kelly's favorites. We explore vampire depictions in general and these two movies in particular, as well as what exactly Richard Gilmore (Ed Herrmann) is doing in The Lost Boys. NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode.…
 
In this episode, we discuss two of our favorite movies: I, Madman (literally the second horror movie Kelly saw and one she watched repeatedly growing up) and In the Mouth of Madness (one we both love but which Josh has watched weekly for literal years). The idea of living inside a book (or having a book come to life in the world we inhabit) sounds …
 
Josh and Kelly are joined by Rektok Ross (author of Ski Weekend, a fantastic book that you can buy right now) to discuss I Know What You Did Last Summer (the movie and the TV show). There are brief mentions of I Still Know What You Did Last Summer because Kelly is a bad friend who said it would be fun to watch and discuss that, too. NOTE: There are…
 
Josh and Kelly discuss Chopping Mall and Night of the Comet, two very 80s movies that are set in the mall. Sidebar topics include whether we would survive a Night of the Comet-type scenario, a scene in Chopping Mall that is horrifying to both of us and how if you can make a reference to Rocky IV, you DO make a reference to Rocky IV. NOTE: There are…
 
Josh and Kelly discuss the original Paranormal Activity and its newest sequel, Next of Kin. There's the obvious discussion of how they relate to The Blair Witch Project, but there are plenty of other worthy comparisons. Also, Kelly discusses her Halloween weekend movie marathon. NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. Other movies mentioned: The …
 
Josh and Kelly discuss the original Night of the Demons in this bonus episode. You can stream it on Prime or Shudder. NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. Other movies mentioned: Return of the Living Dead, Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master On Tuesday's episode, we'll discuss the original Paranormal Activity and the new release, Paran…
 
Josh and Kelly watch two of Jamie Lee Curtis's other horror movies: Prom Night and Terror Train! If you haven't seen those, you're in for a real treat. (Both are streaming through Shudder.) As an added bonus, we also discuss the new Chucky and I Know What You Did Last Summer series (Chucky is on Syfy but season passes are available to buy on Vudu a…
 
Halloween Kills has been out for under a week and Twitter has some strong opinions. Author and fellow horror enthusiast Cooper S. Beckett is here to chat about the two most recent Halloween movies and the outcry. Sidebar discussions include favorite franchise sequels and music. NOTE: There are spoilers for both Halloween (2018) and Halloween Kills.…
