It's a zombie jamboree this week! We're gently charmed by the Thriller-meets-bad-Stephen-King The Midnight Hour. The bad-lad misogynistic "comedy" of Doghouse leaves most of us feeling deeply unclean. And Versus is a gonzo good time, provided you don't watch the awful dubbed version on Amazon.
Next week: Sell your soul to rock and roll with:
And our short is Skeletons. Watch along if you like and we'll see you next week!

It's all new, mostly great movies this week! The Girl with All the Gifts gets record high scores, as does Get Out. Sharknado 4... well, returns have diminished substantially on that there franchise.
Next week, it's zombies 'round the world! We're watching:
The Midnight Hour (weird-ass TV movie starring Levar Burton! Available only on YouTube.)
Versus (Japan, Amazon VOD)
Doghouse (UK, Shudder)

We celebrate Women in Horror Month this week with three female-directed films. Folks, there are a ton of great horror movies directed by women: The Invitation, Honeymoon, Babadook, Pet Sematary, to name a few. Unfortunately, this set of XX, Don't Look Back, and Mirror/Mirror is only okay. Not great, not terrible -- but we're loopy enough to still get a fun show out of it.
For next week, we're hitting up three new movies that just might be varying levels of quality:
Get Out (Theatrical release)
The Girl With all the Gifts (Amazon VOD)
Sharknado 4: The Fourth Awakens (Netflix)

It's a vamptastic, vamptacular week! We dig on the priestly bloodsucker in Thirst, find My Sucky Teen Romance pretty damn charming, and feel like Kiss of the Damned is a little too artsy for its own good. The short, Prita Noire, is as pretty as it is baffling.
Next week! It's the tail end of Women in Horror month, and we're celebrating with three films by female directors:
XX, an all-female-director anthology: Amazon
Don't Look Back, a French New Extremism thriller: Shudder
Mirror/Mirror, an early 90's cheesefest: Shudder
Our short is Vanilla Cake, from Fun Size Horror.
Minnesota Folks: Join us on Sunday, Feb 26th for GET OUT! We're headed to the Showplace Icon in St. Louis Park for a 7 p.m. showing with beer and discussion to follow. Get a jumpstart on the next episode and experience a film that's already getting amazing critical response. Check out the Facebook event and join us, can't you?

There's a lot to like on this week's podcast: The new Blair Witch is a far meaner motorscooter than the critics would have you believe. The Prowler is a hidden 80's gem. The Similars is a cool throwback to old Twilight Zone-style weirdness that was good for a few chills, too.
Next week: When Matt's away, it's vampires, yay!
We'll be watching:
Thirst (Korean vamps)
Kiss of the Damned
My Sucky Teen Romance
Join us, can't you?

It's a mixed bag of supernatural ladyfolk in this week's show! Siren can't quite capture the magic of its short-film predecessor. Kayako vs. Sadako may not be a bout for the ages, but has it's moments. Satan's Cheerleaders is definitely a series of images brought to the illusion of life through the persistence of vision.
Next week! Each one pick one!
Matt (well, Megan really) picks: The Similars
Josh picks: Blair Witch (reboot/make/sequel)
Charlie picks: The Prowler
Our short is There Shall Come Angels. Listen, watch, comment, and we'll see you next week!

This week starts off with Matt covering Ini Kamoze's "Here Comes the Hotstepper," and just gets weirder from there. We pay tribute to fallen character actors Miguel Ferrer, George Kennedy, and Robert Loggia while enjoying some truly bonkers horror. There's the cat-ception of Uninvited, vampires & mobsters in Innocent Blood, and a vampire in a small-engine plane in Night Flier. Our short, the Captured Bird, was beautiful but baffling, like all the women in our lives.
Next week! Who rules the world? Demonic girls! We're watching:
Sadako Vs. Kayako - It's a Ring/Grudge Match! (Shudder)
Satan's Cheerleaders - We know nothing about this other than the title, which is enough. (Shudder)
Siren - Based on the best segment of the first V/H/S. (Amazon Instant)

It's an incredibly mixed bag of freshly-minted indie horror this week. Monster delivers some of the goods, the central mystery in Creep is how it keeps showing up on best-of lists, and Lights Out does less in 90 minutes than its source material did in 3. Our short, Dead But Not Buried, was charming if a little slight.
Next week! It's a requiem for some damn fine character actors:
Miguel Ferrer in Night Flier (YouTube, er, your local video store)
George Kennedy in Uninvited (Shudder)
Robert Loggia in Innocent Blood (Amazon)
Our short will be The Captured Bird.
Watch along with us and we'll see you next week!

We had a mixed bag with our shiny new horror this week. Under the Shadows got high marks from two of us, but Matt threw some shade at it. Matt and Charlie were charmed by I Am Not a Serial Killer, but it failed to slay Josh. At least we can all agree Neon Demon was an unholy (if beautiful to look at) mess.
Our short was Popcorn, and it was a little undercooked.
Next week! We're hitting up another round of new and notable stuff. We're checking out:Creep, The Monster, and Lights Out. Our short is Dead Not Buried.

All ABOOOOOAAAARD! It's Train Week this week. Why? Because, y'know, why should sharks have all the fun?
This week we discuss the bonkers anthology Night Train to Terror, the Jamie Lee Curtis/David Copperfield joint Terror Train, and the awesome Korean zombie flick Train to Busan.
We also giggle a lot and go on weird tangents because we were all exhausted. Enjoy!
Next week! A Netflix Week! We're watching I Am Not a Serial Killer, Under the Shadow, and Neon Demon.
