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)

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!

Ep. 256: There’s a Wraith in the Vestibule

November 30, 2017

Hello, Mary Lou! The gang watched Prom Night 2 this week, which despite not at all being a sequel to Prom Night is good bonkers fun. Mayhem is also an adrenaline-fueled, goofy good time. Sadly, the true curse in Noroi is sitting through a two hour found footage movie for 45 minutes of plot. At least our short, Monsters in the Dark 2, is another stone cold classic from Luke Mordue.

 

Next week: Each one pick one! We had considered running the Wishmaster series this week, but that's a little too masochistic for the holiday season. So,

Matt's Pick: Witchery (Shudder)

Charlie's Pick: The Devil's Rain (Amazon Prime)

Josh's Pick: The Exorcism of Emily Rose (Amazon)

Our short is Holiday Fear. Watch along and we'll chat atcha next week!

HSHD Special Edition: No End House

November 22, 2017

Hey hot doggies,

Holiday travels kept us from getting together to discuss our assigned films this week. But Matt and Megan are standing boldly in the gap with their (spoilery) review of the latest series of Channel Zero: No-End House!

Next week we'll still discuss:

Noroi: The Curse

Prom Night 2

Mayhem

Our short is Monsters in the Dark 2 from the most excellent Luke Mordue. Maybe watch Monsters in the Dark first.

Ep. 255: Remove the Invisible Trilby

November 14, 2017

This week, we delve into Charlie's personal horror movie to stash for some weird, delightful, hard-to-find stuff. Tesis is a harrowing thriller, Terror Tract is a delightful anthology, and The Outing is a bug-nutty thing with a genie, maybe? We had a blast with these movies and just as much fun talking about them.

Next week! Things we have talked about but not seen! We're watching:

Noroi: The Curse

Prom Night 2

Mayhem

Our short is Monsters in the Dark 2 from the most excellent Luke Mordue. Maybe watch Monsters in the Dark first.

Ep. 254: The Windex of Monster Venom

November 8, 2017

It's a podcast switcheroo this week, as we take over duties on Slaughterhouse Princess and Chris, Brett & Troy do their best to fill our shoes. They review Creep, Creepy, and Creepazoids, and gain a new respect for podcasts who do three films a week instead of one.

Meanwhile, we got to slack off this week and just review the Poltergeist remake. Ahhhh.

Next week: Back to the grind! It's Charlie Netflix week, and we're going deep into the man's treasure trove of hard-to-find films:

Tesis

The Outing

Terror Tract

Our short is Treaters. Watch along with us and we'll chat atcha next week!

Ep. 253: That’s Not a Knife, That’s a Metaphor

November 5, 2017

It's a found footage-y week this week, with Found Footage 3D and Grave Encounters fulfilling all your shaky-cam needs. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer is less vertigo-inducing, but even more disturbing. And the miracle is we found any time to record, since we were finishing off Twin Cities Horror Festival!

Next week we're doing something a little different and super special: An ill-timed Halloween crossover with scissor-sister podcast Slaughterhouse Princess. We'll be doing one movie, 'cause that's all those slackers do every week, and that movie is the Poltergeist remake. We're making them do three movies, as all hard-working, upstanding podcasts should do.

So they'll post their new ep here, and ours will be over there. Clear as mud? Awesome!
