It's a wild and weird week! Demon Wind is a tone poem of 80s strangeness. Birdboy: The Forgotten Children is the bleakest, darkest movie about adorable cartoon animals that we've ever seen. Cargo is a beautifully shot and acted film that loses some of its punch if you've already seen the short it's based on.
Next week: Each one pick one!
Josh Picks: Cat's Eye (Shudder)
Matt Picks: Annihilation (Amazon)
Charlie Picks: Deep Rising (Amazon Prime)
Our short is The Mime. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

It's a "meh" week for Matt, but Charlie and Josh get plenty of enjoyment out of Revenge and Fright Night 2. Downrange takes a shot (heh), but doesn't quite gel into something groovy.
Next week: Stuff! We're watching:
Demon Wind (Amazon Prime)
Birdboy: The Forgotten Children (Amazon Prime)
Our short is Basement Bags. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

This week, we have a set of films that are flawed and interesting in various degrees. Marrowbone's more on the interesting side, with some greatness covering some pretty substantial problems. Berberian Sound Studio mostly squanders a really groovy premise. And The Monster Project has an amazing setup and a few great scenes, but it's not easy to watch.
Next week: Two heavy thrillers and a palate cleanser! We're watching:
Fright Night 2 (It's out there...)
Our short is There's a Man in the Woods. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

It's a spooooky episode this week! Also, apparently a cursed one. A power outage ate Josh's audio stream, and he had to recreate it. So you may hear a few seconds of silence a couple of times, but for the most part it's good. We all enjoyed Ghostwatch and Ghost Stories this week. Ghost Stories pulled off the feat of using Josh's least favorite twist ending and still being good!
Next week: Potpourri of Recent Stuff!
The Monster Project (Amazon Prime)
Marrowbone (Amazon Rental)
Berberian Sound Studio (Shudder)
Watch along with us and we'll catch you soon.

This week, we enjoy the Robocop Vs. Rat movie Of Unknown Origin, are mostly into Saturday Morning Mystery, and find 1922 pretty solid, too. It's a short episode, but we have fun, and you will too.
Next week! We're having an outing!
We are watching Ghost Stories at the Landmark Lagoon Sunday, May 6th at 7:20 pm.
To round out the week, we're adding Ghostwatch on Shudder.
Our short is Child Eater. Watch along if you'd like and we'll see you next time!

It's love (and in some cases indifference) in an elevator this week as we dig the 90s weirdness of The Tower, enjoy the bonkers 80s weirdness of 2001's Down (also known as Shaft, can you dig it?), and find the bland Elevator kinda okay.
Next week: Each one pick one!
Josh picks 1922 (Netflix)
Matt picks Saturday Morning Mystery (Amazon)
Charlie picks Of Unknown Origin (Amazon)
Our short is Nope. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!
April 20, 2018
It's a wild ride this week, as we celebrate the indie spookiness of Pyewacket, dig the weird 80sness of First Power, and have widely varying opinions on the jet-black nihilism of Mon Mon Mon Monsters.
Next Week: Are we gonna let the elevator bring us down? OH NO LET'S GO!
The Tower 1993 (YouTube)
Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!
April 6, 2018
There's lot to like and lots to ponder this week! Wishmaster 2 is almost as nutty and fun as the first one, and Crimson Peak is gorgeous and overwrought enough to charm at least 2/3rds of us. And we all agree that Open House needed to pick a subgenre and stick with it.
Next week: Things Charlie picked! We're watching:
Mon Mon Monsters (Shudder)
The First Power (Youtube)
Our short is Rot. Watch along and we'll chat atcha next time!

It's a different kind of week this week! Matt loves Rosalind Leigh, while Josh isn't convinced it even qualifies as a movie. Charlie and Josh dig the somber rural thing that is Stake Land 2, but Matt is bored. At least we all agree the Uninvited is a lovely bit of 1940s silliness.
Next week: A Hodge! And a Podge! We're watching:
Crimson Peak (Amazon)
The Open House (Netflix)
Wishmaster 2 (Shudder)
Our short is (Grime Artist a Visit from) the Tickle Monster.
March 22, 2018
This week we all agree that Cure for Wellness is an okay movie with frustrating glimpses of awesomeness, and that Cold Hell is an awesome movie with some frustrating pacing. We split on Mom and Dad, with Charlie reveling in cheesy glee, Josh pretty much digging it, and Matt nitpicking the everloving hell out of it. There may be some raised voices, but it's all in good fun.
Next week: Potpourri! We're watching:
Stakeland 2: The Stakelander (Netflix)
The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh (Amazon)
The Uninvited (Amazon)
