It's all cults and cultists on this episode! We heartily dig the Lovecraft-via-Asgard The Ritual, appreciate The Shrine's practical effects, and also we watched Believers. Josh watched two different Believers, in fact, and was unimpressed by both!
Next week: We're wrapping up Women in Horror Month! We're watching:
Trouble Every Day (Amazon Prime)
The Bye Bye Man (Amazon, YouTube, Google Play)
Our short is Your Date Is Here. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

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 (1987) (Amazon)
The Shrine (Shudder on Amazon)
Our short is Where Is It. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

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!

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.
Messiah of Evil (Shudder)
Our short is Neil Gaiman's A Short Film about John Bolton.
