Ep. 300: Jacked Up Summer Camp

November 8, 2018

Fans of the Odometer Effect rejoice: It's our THREE HUNDREDTH episode! That means we've watched at least 900 movies over the past 6 years. Why do we do it? Uh, we'll get back to you on that one.

This week we loved Errementari, were seriously underwhelmed by Slice, and found Malevolent to be, at best, slightly ill-tempered.

Next week: Amazon Prime! We're watching:

Dolls (finally!)

The Strangers: Prey at Night

Dead of Winter

Our short is Liebe. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

Ep. 299: IKEA Instructions of Emotionality

November 5, 2018

Thanks for your patience as we wrap up Twin Cities Horror Fest! This week we found some real gems: Apostle is an imaginative and suspenseful period piece, and Witch in the Window is everything indie horror ought to be. Even Jigsaw breathes some new life into an old franchise.

Next week: Free stuff!

Slice (Amazon Prime)

Malevolent (Netflix)

Errementari (Netflix)

Our short is Scratch My Back. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

Ep. 298: Lamprey in a People Suit

October 20, 2018

Thrills and chills to be had in this week's episode! MARVEL at the psychadelic scientology-meets-Exorcist The Visitor! SHIVER at the X-Files-Meets-Conjuring weirdness of Terrified! SQUIRM as three white guys try to figure out how they should talk about Tales from the Hood 2! 

Next week: More new stuff! We're watching

Our short is The Devil's Passenger. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

Ep. 297: Ferret in a Bag

October 17, 2018

This week it's all manic Satanic panic, as we enjoy The Blood on Satan's Claw, are chilled by Satan's Slaves, and are mostly annoyed by Satan's Little Helper. 

Next week: Hodge! And podge!

We're watching:

Terrified (Shudder)

The Visitor (Shudder)

Tales from the Hood 2 (Netflix)

Our short is A Father's Day. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

Also! Twin Cities Horror Festival is just around the corner! We'll be there with five hours of hand-picked short films, most of which you can't get online. Get tickets here.

Ep. 296: The Pearl of Irrelevancy

October 5, 2018

It's found footage time, and you know what that means: Shaky cameras, improbably-placed cameras, and people yelling at each other. Still, there are a few scares to be had in (the incredibly awkwardly-named) Hell House LLC 2: The Abbadon Hotel and Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum. Our third pick, Let Her Out, led to a split decision, with Charlie defending it despite its flaws, and Matt & Josh wishing we could Put Her Back.

This week: I don't know... could it be... SATAN?!? We're watching:

Satan's Slaves (Shudder)

The Blood on Satan's Claw (Prime)

Satan's Little Helper (Prime)

Our short is... this thing. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

Ep. 295 The Ottoman Hole

September 29, 2018

It's a lovefest this week! We dig on Wildling, and are over the moon for Endless and Resolution. If there's ever a week to watch all three movies, make it this one.

Next week! Some found footage and one that isn't (because we need a break after a few of those).

Hell House LLC II (Shudder)

Ganjiam: Haunted Asylum (Amazon Prime

Let Her Out (Shudder)

Our short is The Thing at 2:37. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

Ep. 294: The Count of Macchi Sisto

September 19, 2018

It's William Castle and Castle-Adjacent flicks this week! We love the weird and sleazy Homicidal, are gently amused by 13 Ghosts, and find Return to Haunted Hill a little watered down. Weird that a direct-to-video sequel to a remake would somehow lack joie de vivre.

Next week: Some stuff we wanted to watch! We're doing:

Resolution

The Endless

Wildling

Our short is The Armoire. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

00:0000:00

Ep. 293: Ty-D-Bol Zombies

September 11, 2018

It's a weird and widely varied show this week! We enjoy the deeply indie Weird Fiction, absolutely adore Summer of '84, but only Charlie likes The Windmill. For the rest of us, it was kind of a... grind?

Next week: William Castle and Castle-Adjacent flicks!

13 Ghosts (1960) YouTube

Homicidal (1961) YouTube

Return to House on Haunted Hill (2007) Amazon

 

Our short is Mr. Leadfeet. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

Ep. 292: Sunny Meadows Drug Helpy-Place-Thing

September 4, 2018

We watched some great new films this week. Unsane overcomes its gimmick (shot entirely on iPhone 7) to deliver a truly chilling thriller. Lodgers underplayed its gothic horror to make it creepy and memorable. And The Hidden went wacky in a way that entertained at least two of us.

Next week: More new stuff! We're watching:

Weird Fiction, a zero-budget indie anthology. You can see the trailer here.

Summer of '84 (VoD)

The Windmill (Netflix)

Our short is Polybius. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

Ep. 291: Make the Begonias Talk

August 25, 2018

It's sequel week! Leprechaun 2 has a few lucky charms, When A Stranger Calls Back is agreeably bonkers, but the latest Puppetmaster comes with too many strings attached.

Next week: Free stuff (if you pay $25 a month in subscriptions)! We're watching:

Lodgers - Netflix

Unsane - Amazon Prime

The Hidden - Shudder

Our short for the week is The Quiet Zone.

 

Watch along wtih us and we'll see you next week!
