It's a mixed bag of supernatural ladyfolk in this week's show! Siren can't quite capture the magic of its short-film predecessor. Kayako vs. Sadako may not be a bout for the ages, but has it's moments. Satan's Cheerleaders is definitely a series of images brought to the illusion of life through the persistence of vision.
Next week! Each one pick one!
Matt (well, Megan really) picks: The Similars
Josh picks: Blair Witch (reboot/make/sequel)
Charlie picks: The Prowler
Our short is There Shall Come Angels. Listen, watch, comment, and we'll see you next week!

This week starts off with Matt covering Ini Kamoze's "Here Comes the Hotstepper," and just gets weirder from there. We pay tribute to fallen character actors Miguel Ferrer, George Kennedy, and Robert Loggia while enjoying some truly bonkers horror. There's the cat-ception of Uninvited, vampires & mobsters in Innocent Blood, and a vampire in a small-engine plane in Night Flier. Our short, the Captured Bird, was beautiful but baffling, like all the women in our lives.
Next week! Who rules the world? Demonic girls! We're watching:
Sadako Vs. Kayako - It's a Ring/Grudge Match! (Shudder)
Satan's Cheerleaders - We know nothing about this other than the title, which is enough. (Shudder)
Siren - Based on the best segment of the first V/H/S. (Amazon Instant)

It's an incredibly mixed bag of freshly-minted indie horror this week. Monster delivers some of the goods, the central mystery in Creep is how it keeps showing up on best-of lists, and Lights Out does less in 90 minutes than its source material did in 3. Our short, Dead But Not Buried, was charming if a little slight.
Next week! It's a requiem for some damn fine character actors:
Miguel Ferrer in Night Flier (YouTube, er, your local video store)
George Kennedy in Uninvited (Shudder)
Robert Loggia in Innocent Blood (Amazon)
Our short will be The Captured Bird.
Watch along with us and we'll see you next week!

We had a mixed bag with our shiny new horror this week. Under the Shadows got high marks from two of us, but Matt threw some shade at it. Matt and Charlie were charmed by I Am Not a Serial Killer, but it failed to slay Josh. At least we can all agree Neon Demon was an unholy (if beautiful to look at) mess.
Our short was Popcorn, and it was a little undercooked.
Next week! We're hitting up another round of new and notable stuff. We're checking out:Creep, The Monster, and Lights Out. Our short is Dead Not Buried.

All ABOOOOOAAAARD! It's Train Week this week. Why? Because, y'know, why should sharks have all the fun?
This week we discuss the bonkers anthology Night Train to Terror, the Jamie Lee Curtis/David Copperfield joint Terror Train, and the awesome Korean zombie flick Train to Busan.
We also giggle a lot and go on weird tangents because we were all exhausted. Enjoy!
Next week! A Netflix Week! We're watching I Am Not a Serial Killer, Under the Shadow, and Neon Demon.

Our grab bag of movies this week hit your intrepid hosts in very different ways. We all agreed The Autopsy of Jane Doe was excellent, but the science ghosts of Spectral and Link the orangutan who identifies as a chimpanzee thrilled Matt & Charlie more than Josh.
Next week! All aboard for a train-themed trilogy. We'll be watching:
- Train to Busan: Korean zombies on a train (Amazon VOD)
- Terror Train: Jamie Lee Curtis and a slasher! (streaming, wink wink)
- Night Trian to Terror: God and Satan on a train narrating an anthology! (Shudder)
Our short this week is Luna. Enjoy the show and we'll talk at you next week.

It's a very special HSHD this week. By which we mean we don't review any new movies and there's no Charlie. So basically it's missing everything you love about the show.
But! We did get Matt, Megan and Josh together to chat about Christmas movies, the year in horror, and wherever else our weird brains took us. There are digressions. There are polite disagreements. There is pizza.
Enjoy this bit of fun and let it whet your appetite for next week's show! We'll be discussing:
And our next short is Closet Space. See you next week!

This week we revel in the pitch-dark, gothic madness of Shrew's Nest, suffer through 31, and don't feel much heat from Hypothermia. But seriously, watch Shrew's Nest. Before you listen. It's that good.
Next week Charlie will be vacationing with his family, so we'll do a little holiday mini-episode and return in force on January 2nd. Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it, and happy Channukah/Kwanzaa/Sunday to those who don't.
Our movies for January 2nd are The Autopsy of Jane Doe (VOD), Link (Shudder), and Spectral (Netflix).
Also, this cool motion poster for Shrew's Nest.

We enjoy a variety pack of weird flicks this week, from the urban decay suspense of Don't Breathe to the classic Cabinet of Dr. Caligari to the wild, weird and wooly Wailing.
Next week: it's Shudder time all the time with Shrew's Nest, Hypothermia, and 31. Our short is Monster Problems.
December 7, 2016
We get a three-pack of Blades this week, stretching the definition of horror for some good ol' fashioned vampire-fighting fun. Some of us dig these movies more than others, but we all agree watching all three back to back was a bad idea. There's only so much techno-scored fight scene a man can endure.
Next week! It's the grab baggiest of grab bags. We'll be watching Korean joint The Wailing, Fede Alvarez's Don't Breathe, and the classic Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Our short next week is Just Take One, from Hatchet's Adam Green! Join us, won't you?
