This week, we celebrate the legendary George Romero, examining the movies that created the modern zombie flick. Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and Day of the Dead are three radically different movies, and it's fascinating to see how Romero's ideas evolve over this first trilogy. We all agree these are great films, and we dug getting deep into what they had to say and what they mean to horror fans.
Next week: Movies we kinda wanna watch! We're hitting up James Gunn's The Belko Experiment, 90s Nightmare on Elm Street knockoff Brainscan, and bonkers 70s flick Cathy's Curse.
The Belko Experiment (Amazon)
Cathy's Curse (Shudder)
Our short this week is Rest. Thanks to Hot Doggie Benjamin Erwin for suggesting it!

Feel the chill of winter in the dog days of summer with this week's podcast! We cover Alaskan vampires in 30 Days of Night, haunted highways in Wind Chill, and flesh-munching climate-change bugs in The Thaw. Does wind chill really matter if you're in a car? Why do creatures capable of speech still do the monster roar? And what has Val Kilmer been eating? All will be revealed.
Next week, we're paying tribute to the godfather of zombie movies, George Romero (RIP...for NOW). We're hitting up the trilogy of movies that made him a horror icon and a household name:
Night of the Living Dead (Shudder, Youtube)
Dawn of the Dead (Amazon)
Day of the Dead (Amazon, Vudu)
Our short is The Jigsaw. Watch along with us and we'll be back next week!

It's a mixed bag of horror-adjacent films this week: Few scares, but plenty of genre weirdness. Matt and Charlie were into the laid-back weirdo vibe of Bad Batch, but Josh found it a little too indie-precious. Delicatessen delights all three of us, and we all dug the political allegory (and gonzo car chases) of Dead End Drive-In.
Next week: We're beating the heat with a trio of chilly, blood-chilling flicks. We're watching:
Wind Chill (Amazon, Starz)
30 Days of Night (Amazon)
The Thaw (Amazon)
Our short is Blinky.
Watch along with us and we'll chat at you next week!

This week we have a grand old time discussing three very strange movies, as well as some lengthy diversions into bullying, Microsoft Office puns, and more. Megan sits in for Matt, since his slack ass didn't finish Motel Hell, and we mostly agree it's a fun and bizarre cult classic. Tag gets us talking about fate, feminism, and the ethics of schoolgirl underwear (less skeevy than it sounds). And Lake Mungo hits Charlie square in the terror zone, but leaves Matt and Josh a little cold.
Next week! Post-apocalyptic fun and/or games! We're watching:
The Bad Batch (Amazon)
Dead End Drive-In (Shudder)
Our short is Delicacy. Watch along if you like and we'll talk at you next week!
