This week we all agree that Cure for Wellness is an okay movie with frustrating glimpses of awesomeness, and that Cold Hell is an awesome movie with some frustrating pacing. We split on Mom and Dad, with Charlie reveling in cheesy glee, Josh pretty much digging it, and Matt nitpicking the everloving hell out of it. There may be some raised voices, but it's all in good fun.
Next week: Potpourri! We're watching:
Stakeland 2: The Stakelander (Netflix)
The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh (Amazon)
The Uninvited (Amazon)

Hoo boy, did we record late this week. Thankfully, that leads to the kind of loopy, tangential podcast the kids seem to enjoy. We have some split decisions this week -- partly because we watched two different movies called Dead Inside and released in 2011. But we did enjoy parts of Dead Body and parts of Day of the Dead: Bloodline -- even though we're not sure why the latter exists and what its deal is.
Next week: Each one pick one!
Mom and Dad (Amazon)
A Cure for Wellness (cinemax, Vudu)
Cold Hell (Shudder)
Watch along and we'll chat atcha next week!

It's a wild ride with some mild movies this week! Veronica is flawed but compelling, even moreso if you don't listen to the hype about how it will scare your spleen straight outta your body. Leprechaun raises many questions, like, "why do rainbows only have three colors?" and "how did this get 6 sequels?" But Night of the Comet is a genuine overlooked gem of an 80s flick.
Next week: Dead! We're watching
Dead Inside (also known as The Evil Inside) [Amazon, Random Weird Private Roku Channel]
Dead Body [Amazon Prime]
Day of the Dead: Bloodline [Amazon, Redbox]
Our short is Blackout. Watch along and we'll chat atcha next time!

We're rounding up Women in Horror this month with three female-directed movies of wildly varying quality! Our opinions on Trouble Every Day range from "barely a movie at all" to "a painful personal attack." But we're pleasantly surprised by The Bye Bye Man and Surveillance.
Next week: Things! We're watching:
Night of the Comet (Amazon)
Our short is Knock So Scary. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

It's all cults and cultists on this episode! We heartily dig the Lovecraft-via-Asgard The Ritual, appreciate The Shrine's practical effects, and also we watched Believers. Josh watched two different Believers, in fact, and was unimpressed by both!
Next week: We're wrapping up Women in Horror Month! We're watching:
Trouble Every Day (Amazon Prime)
The Bye Bye Man (Amazon, YouTube, Google Play)
Our short is Your Date Is Here. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

There's not much consensus this week, but fortunately we've all learned how to disagree without arguing -- and that's the true meaning of Christmas. Charlie and Matt were pretty sold on Tragedy Girls, but Josh wasn't buying it. And Josh loved Under the Skin, while the other gents didn't dig the pacing and ambiguity. At least we can all agree that Hard Candy is absolutely boss.
Next week: Vaguely religious stuff!
The Ritual (Netflix)
Believers (1987) (Amazon)
The Shrine (Shudder on Amazon)
Our short is Where Is It. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

It's Women in Horror Month! We celebrate by picking obscure movies co-directed or directed by women -- and discover that women are just as good at making mediocre horror movies as men. Hisss is a fascinating mess that never quite gels on its Bollywood-meets-Roger-Corman-with-Feminist-Ideals thing. Spookies is...well, a fascinating mess with great creature effects and lno discernable plot. Messiah of Evil has some genuine chills stuck in ... well... a fascinating mess.
So! Let us call your attention to some great films directed by women that we've watched over the years, like:
Next week: Horror with badass women in leading roles! We're watching
Our short is Night In. Watch along and we'll catch you next week!

Josh is back in the saddle again this week! We would watch Happy Death Day on an endless loop, but we wish Wish Upon had a little more courage to its convictions. And 80s oddball Happy Birthday to Me has some notable kills, but the true killer is the 110-minute runtime.
Next week: Women in Horror Month Part 1! We're celebrating the women who make bitchin' horror by watching weird-ass movies with female directors.
Messiah of Evil (Shudder)
Our short is Neil Gaiman's A Short Film about John Bolton.

This week Josh is recovering from an attack of the vapours (as far as medical science can discern. Don't worry; he's okay). But Megan steps into the void and fills it well, joining Matt and Charlie to chat about Patreon subscriber Mud Stuffin's selections: Hide and Seek, The Others, and El Orfanato.
Next week! Movies about teenagers and the teenaged things they do! We're watching:
Happy Death Day (Amazon)
Wish Upon (Amazon, iTunes)
Happy Birthday to Me (Shudder)
Our short is Zygote. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

We strike gold on Netflix this week, with one of the highest-rated movies we've ever done: The lovely, lyrical, slighty horrific Boys in the Trees. We also dig Before I Wake, a lost gem from Mike Flanagan. The only outlier is Vault, a dull heist/haunting movie that inexplicably stars James Franco.
Next week: Patreon picks from Mud Stuffin! We're watching:
The Others (Vudu, Google Play)
The Orphanage (
Hide and Seek
Our short is Whisper. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!
