This week we check out an adventure 40 years in the making: Halloween (2018). Spoiler alert: It's really, really good. Cold Skin is a hidden gem, too, with a lot more on its mind than the "fish monsters invade an island" tagline would suggest. Rounding out the set, Anatomy is a fun if slight thriller with a few moments of butt-clenching gore.
Next week: Grab bag! We're watching:
Suspiria 2018 (Amazon rental)
Velvet Buzzsaw (Netflix)
Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

This week ended up more Meh than anticipated. Matt dug Outpust and Josh & Charlie were into the Changeling, but Spiral Staircase's overlong misogyny parade was only partially redeemed by some cool camera work.
Next week: New stuff! We're watching:
Halloween 2018 (Amazon)
Cold Skin (Shudder)
Anatomy (Amazon Prime)
Our short is Transmission. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

This week we returned to our usual, non-masochistic format. Charlie's back! And we're watching good movies like What Keeps You Alive and Bird Box!
Also, we watched Liquid Sky, but they can't all be winners.
We're themeless next week, and we're watching:
The Changeling (Shudder)
The Spiral Staircase (YouTube)
The Outpost (Amazon Prime)
Our short is Winter Horror. Watch along and we'll chat soon.

Charlie's away this week, so we watched three movies that Charlie hates too much to watch again for the show.
Which, in retrospect, was not the greatest idea. We shared his animosity toward Antisocial, We Are the Flesh, and Ghost Team One.
Next Week: Stuff we are less likely to hate! We're watching:
Bird Box (Netflix)
What Keeps You Alive (Amazon Rental)
Liquid Sky (Shudder & Amazon Prime)
Our short is Abe. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

A belated Christmas to all and to all a Happy New Year! We are baffled by Christmas Presence, intrigued by the ultimately half-baked Pooka, and Visions of Sugarplums gives us an 80s cheese fix.
Next week: Charlie is away, so we're watching movies he hated!
Antisocial (Amazon Prime)
Ghost Team One (Amazon Rental)
We Are the Flesh (Shudder)
Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

It's a mixed bag of mixedness this week! Twitter-originated-meta-horror-comedy You Might Be the Killer charms two of us, Madman bores two of us, and we all enjoy the lunacy (ha ha!) of 90s werewolf thingy Bad Moon.
Next week: Halls will be decked! We're watching:
Christmas Presence (Shudder)
Visions of Sugar Plums (YouTube)
Our short is also called Christmas Presence. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.
December 7, 2018
It's another wildly varied bunch this week! Mandy disappointed all of us to varying degrees, Lifeforce is the bugnutty space vampire movie we need right now, and All the Creatures Were Stirring earns its indie bona fides.
Next week we're watching:
Bad Moon (Amazon Prime)
You Might Be the Killer (Shudder)
Our short is Snap. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

This is one of those fascinating episodes where weird digressions and serious conversations intertwine. We each had a different fave this week: Josh loved Cam, Matt was into Ghoul, and Charlie dug on Madhouse.
Next week: Further adventures in weird! We're watching:
All the Creatures Were Stirring (Redbox)
Our short is Absence. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

Instead of doing the show this week, Josh went to the ER and got drugs that knocked him out for a full day (he's fine now). But Matt and Charlie hold it down as we discuss a bizarre but entertaining group of flicks: Stuart Gordon's lost masterpiece Dolls, thriller Dead of Winter, and superfluous sequel Strangers: Prey at Night.
Next week: More variety! More weird! We're watching:
The Ghoul (Amazon Prime)
Madhouse 1981 (Amazon Prime)
Our short is Tik-Tik. Watch along and we'll chat soon!

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:
The Strangers: Prey at Night
Dead of Winter
Our short is Liebe. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!
