This week was an enigma wrapped in a puzzle wrapped in... kind of a bummer. Braid was beautiful but disappointing, Book of Monsters had more ambition than talent, and Hell Fest was a store-brand slasher with just a few standout moments. But we persevere!
Next week we're watching some cult-themed goodness:
Our short is The Bells. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.
July 4, 2019
This week we love The Clovehitch Killer and are mostly into Nightshifter, but find Hagazussa to be too slow of a burn to keep us invested.
Next week: More new stuff! We're watching:
Book of Monsters (Shudder)
Hell Fest (VoD)
Our short is Last One Screaming. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.
Reminder! You can catch Josh's capsule reviews of all our films (and whatever else he's watching) here: https://letterboxd.com/NiteWatch/films/reviews/

This week we are gently baffled by Cut, pleasantly baffled by Cast a Deadly Spell, and not baffled but mostly entertained by Fallen.
Next week: New stuff! We're watching:
The Clovehitch Killer (Hulu)
The Nightshifter (Shudder)
Watch along and we'll chat soon.
June 12, 2019
This week we dig on Slaughterhouse Rulez, have fun with Dr. Phibes' second outing, and admire Bless the Child's intentions more than its execution.
Next week: 90s-ish stuff! We're watching:
Cast a Deadly Spell
Our short is Quitter. Watch along and we'll chat soon.
June 6, 2019
This week, we enjoy the lurid weirdness of Perfection, and appreciate the historical significance of Pulgasari. We agree that Abattoir has some interesting ideas--some would say too many--sunk by weird character choices and awful dialog.
Next week, we're watching a weird little potpourri:
Bless the Child (Prime)
Slaughterhouse Rulez (VOD)
Dr. Phibes Rises Again (Prime)
Our short is Cam Closer. Watch along and we'll chat soon.
May 31, 2019
This week, we loved Most Beautiful Island, dug the gore in The Ruins, and were underwhelmed by Penny Dreadful.
Up next: Each one pick one!
Matt picks: Pulgasari
Charlie Picks: The Perfection
Josh Picks: Abattoir
Our short is Fallout. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

This week we watch Josh's on-screen debut (which also features Bruce Campbell and Ossie Davis), Bubba Ho-Tep. It's pretty great. Less groovy are the anemic All That We Destroy and the goofy 80s-ness of Superstition.
Next time: Amazon Prime! We're watching:
Most Beautiful Island
Penny Dreadful (2006)
Our short is The Last Ten. Watch along and we'll chat soon.
May 13, 2019
This week we start late and are sloppy but brief in our discussion of The Hole in the Ground, Bad Dreams, and I'll Take Your Dead. We liked them! Some!
Next week: Potpourri of Picking. We're watching:
Bubba Ho-Tep (Prime)
Superstition (Amazon VOD)
All That We Destroy (Hulu Into the Dark)
Our short is How to Be Alone. Watch along and we'll chat soon!
May 7, 2019
This week we finally get to Scanners, which mostly holds up. But we had a lot more fun with the "Chinese Indiana Jones" flick The Seventh Curse. And about Monster Party, the less said, the better.
Next week: Charlie picks 'em all! We're watching:
Bad Dreams (Shudder)
I'll Take Your Dead (Amazon Rental)
The Hole in the Ground (Amazon Prime)
Our short is Looking Glass. Watch along and we'll chat soon.
April 26, 2019
This week we set a record for earliest title phrase! Also 2/3rds of us dig Prophecy, 2/3rds dig Lizzie, and 1/3rd digs Zombiology.
Next week: Another something old, something new, something weird! We're watching:
Scanners (amazon rental)
Monster Party (Shudder)
The 7th Curse (Prime)
Our short is In the Darkness. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.
