Ep. 265: Gasmask Balaclava

February 19, 2018

There's not much consensus this week, but fortunately we've all learned how to disagree without arguing -- and that's the true meaning of Christmas. Charlie and Matt were pretty sold on Tragedy Girls, but Josh wasn't buying it. And Josh loved Under the Skin, while the other gents didn't dig the pacing and ambiguity. At least we can all agree that Hard Candy is absolutely boss.

Next week: Vaguely religious stuff!

The Ritual (Netflix)

Believers (Amazon)

The Shrine (Shudder)

Our short is Where Is It. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

Ep. 264: Running Vest Zipper Game

February 9, 2018

It's Women in Horror Month! We celebrate by picking obscure movies co-directed or directed by women -- and discover that women are just as good at making mediocre horror movies as men.  Hisss is a fascinating mess that never quite gels on its Bollywood-meets-Roger-Corman-with-Feminist-Ideals thing. Spookies is...well, a fascinating mess with great creature effects and lno discernable plot. Messiah of Evil has some genuine chills stuck in ... well... a fascinating mess.

So! Let us call your attention to some great films directed by women that we've watched over the years, like:

Next week: Horror with badass women in leading roles! We're watching

Our short is Night In. Watch along and we'll catch you next week!

Ep. 263: History of Drawbridges

February 4, 2018

Josh is back in the saddle again this week! We would watch Happy Death Day on an endless loop, but we wish Wish Upon had a little more courage to its convictions. And 80s oddball Happy Birthday to Me has some notable kills, but the true killer is the 110-minute runtime.

Next week: Women in Horror Month Part 1! We're celebrating the women who make bitchin' horror by watching weird-ass movies with female directors. 

Hisss (Netflix)

Spookies (Youtube)

Messiah of Evil (Shudder)

Our short is Neil Gaiman's A Short Film about John Bolton.

Ep. 262: Famke Janssen D.D.S., O.B.G.Y.N., B.B.Q.

January 26, 2018

This week Josh is recovering from an attack of the vapours (as far as medical science can discern. Don't worry; he's okay). But Megan steps into the void and fills it well, joining Matt and Charlie to chat about Patreon subscriber Mud Stuffin's selections: Hide and Seek, The Others, and El Orfanato.

Next week! Movies about teenagers and the teenaged things they do! We're watching:

Happy Death Day (Amazon)

Wish Upon (Amazon, iTunes)

Happy Birthday to Me  (Shudder)

Our short is Zygote. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

Ep. 261: Putting on Sugar Face

January 13, 2018

We strike gold on Netflix this week, with one of the highest-rated movies we've ever done: The lovely, lyrical, slighty horrific Boys in the Trees. We also dig Before I Wake, a lost gem from Mike Flanagan. The only outlier is Vault, a dull heist/haunting movie that inexplicably stars James Franco.

Next week: Patreon picks from Mud Stuffin! We're watching:

The Others (Vudu, Google Play)

The Orphanage (

Hide and Seek

Our short is Whisper. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

Ep. 260: Single Sort Dude Recycling

January 8, 2018

They weren't the greatest movies this week, but we did have fun talking about them. The Corpse of Anna Fritz was the strongest by far, a mean motor scooter of a revenge flick that overcomes a trope-y setup to be fun. Lake Bodom, on the other hand, took at least one twist too many and left most of us feeling cheated. And Sharknado 5 is the shark that broke Josh's dorsal fin.

Next week: It's all Netflixy up in here! We're watching:

The Vault

Before I Wake

Boys in the Trees

Our short is Cheswick, which can be found on Shudder as part of the Nitehawk Shorts Festival collection (it's the last one before the end credits).

Special Ep: Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 1!

January 3, 2018

We were all too busy holidayin' to watch movies this past week. But Matt and Megan took time off from their martini sipping sophisticated partying ways to lay down their thoughts on Ash V. Evil Dead Season 1!

 

Enjoy, and join us next week for:

The Corpse of Anna Fritz (Shudder)

Lake Bodom (Shudder)

Sharknado 5: Global Swarming (Netflix)

00:0000:00

Ep. 259: Mousy, Blondie & Sweater

December 21, 2017

It's diminishing returns on holiday movies this week! Blood Beat may be a rough-hewn, folk-art, tone-poem of a movie, but at least it was fun to watch. The same can't be said of Whoever Slew Auntie Roo, Shelly Winters notwithstanding. And The Body tells a familiar story, and not particularly well. Still, we're all nice and loopy by the end of it.

Next week we're taking a brief holiday hiatus, but Matt and Megan will discuss Ash Vs. Evil Dead.

After that, for the first show of the New Year, we've got an...eclectic group of movies. We're watching:

The Corpse of Anna Fritz (Shudder)

Lake Bodom (Shudder)

Sharknado 5: Global Swarming (Netflix)

So, from all of us weirdos to all of you weirdos, have a Happy New Year and we'll see you in 2018.

Ep. 258: Only Implied Stairwell

December 14, 2017

Our bells are jingling and our halls are decked this week, as we dig into a trio of Christmas-themed movies. P2 is a serviceable, if slightly sleazy, thriller. A Christmas Horror Story does a lot of things, but none of them particularly well. And for Josh, Better Watch Out brings joy to the world, but it's a silent night for Matt and Charlie.

Next week: Even more, even weirder holiday films! We're watching:

Blood Beat (YouTube)

Body (Shudder) Note on the episode I said this stars Michael Fassbender, when actually it's Larry Fessenden. Minor differences.

Whoever Slew Auntie Roo? (YouTube)

Our short is The Life of Death (no, not this The Life of Death, which is also good). Watch along and we'll chat atcha next time!

Ep. 257: The Technicolor Birth Canal of Doom

December 8, 2017

It's a wild, weird, wooly bunch of flicks this week! The Exorcism of Emily Rose somehow successfully mashes up The Exorcist and Inherit the Wind. The Devil's Rain pits Captain Kirk against a goat-ified Ernest Borgnine. And Witchery is weird enough that pregnant Linda Blair and greasy David Hasslehoff aren't the oddest things about it.

Next week: Christmas movies! We're watching...

Better Watch Out (Shudder)

P2 (Shudder)

A Christmas Horror Story (Netflix)

Watch along and we'll chat atcha next week!
