This week we are a house divided, but the conversation's good. Josh splits with the group in digging In the Tall Grass, Charlie is alone in his admiration for We Have Always Lived in the Castle, and The Furies is all over the dang place. Good times!

Next week, we're watching:

Creepshow, Episode 3 (Shudder)

Little Monsters (not the Howie Mandel one, Hulu)

Ever After (not the Drew Barrymore one, Shudder)

 

Our short is This Must Be the Place.

Watch along and we'll chat soon.

This week we dig One Cut of the Dead, and find the new Creepshow series charming if uneven.

Next week: New stuff! 

We Have Always Lived in the Castle (Netflix)

The Furies (Shudder)

In the Tall Grass (Netflix)

Our short is Firebase.

Watch along if you'd like and we'll chat soon.

This week: MATT IS BACK, Y'ALL! This is not a drill.

We all agreed Tigers Are Not Afraid is the must-see of the week, and possibly the year so far. The other two films fared less well: Josh liked Pure, but Matt and Charlie weren't convinced. And It: Chapter Two was merely kinda good, compared to the greatness of the first chapter.

Next week we're diving into new stuff on Shudder! We're watching:

One Cut of the Dead

Creepshow (2019, first two episodes)

Our short is Under Covers. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

This week, Charlie and Josh have varying degrees of affection for both Belzebuth and The Eye. We can agree that the former is better than the latter, though. And that Jessica Alba should have followed up The Eye with The Ear, The Mouth, and The Nose.

Next week: Three new flicks! We're watching...

It Chapter Two

Into the Dark: Pure

Tigers Are Not Afraid

Our short is Ausente. Watch along and we'll chat soon.

Sorry for the delay, all. There was a business conference and then a busy weekend and now it's somehow Monday and everything is weird.

This time we're mostly into I Am Mother, and mostly frustrated with Monitor.

Next up, something old and something new! We're watching:

The Eye (Prime)

Belzebuth (Shudder)

Watch along and we'll chat soon!

Ep. 334: Millennial Nostalgia Cake

This week: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark gets the scary and the dark right, but misses on the story. The 8-story anthology Field Guide to Evil has a few duds, but succeeds overall.

Next time: New free stuff! We're watching:

Monitor (Prime)

I Am Mother (Netflix)

Our short is Harry Doright's Prelude to Hell. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

This week we went episodic with two TV series. We watched all 2.5 hours of Dead Set, a zombie apocalypse/reality TV riff that is a little workmanlike, but worth a viewing. And we fell in love with the first two episodes of Typewriter, a lushly filmed ghost story that manages to hit a lot of different tones without a sour note.

Next week: Folk you!

We're watching:

Field Guide to Evil (Prime)

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (theatrical)

Our short is Rations. Watch along and we'll chat soon.

Ep. 332: Defrag My Brain

This week we find a minor gem with Freaks of Nature, find DeadTectives a little (no pun intended) soulless, and are intrigued by the Twilight Zone-esque Await Further Instructions.

Next up, we're trying something a little different (GASP). We're watching some episodic horror television! Join us in watching:

Dead Set (5 episodes, Netflix)

And the first two episodes of

Typewriter (Netflix)

Watch along, and we'll chat atcha soon.

This week we loved Party Hard, Die Young, were frustrated by the beautiful but vapid Knife+Heart, and...watched Next of Kin.

Next week it's a grab bag! We're watching:

Freaks of Nature (Rental)

Await Further Instructions (Netflix)

DeadTectives (Shudder)

Our short is The Pretty Thing. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

It's cult movies (not necessarily cult classics) this time around! We love Midsommar, are pretty okay with Culture Shock, and are not necessarily mad at The Calling, just disappointed. 

Next week we're all Shudder all the time!

We're watching:

Next of Kin

Party Hard, Die Young

Knife + Heart

Our short is On/Off. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!
