Ep. 333: Finland By Way of Tanzania

August 15, 2019

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!

This week was an enigma wrapped in a puzzle wrapped in... kind of a bummer. Braid was beautiful but disappointing, Book of Monsters had more ambition than talent, and Hell Fest was a store-brand slasher with just a few standout moments. But we persevere!

Next week we're watching some cult-themed goodness:

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

Ep. 328: Spine for Free

This week we love The Clovehitch Killer and are mostly into Nightshifter, but find Hagazussa to be too slow of a burn to keep us invested.

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

Braid (Prime)

Book of Monsters (Shudder)

Hell Fest (VoD)

Our short is Last One Screaming. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon.

Hagazussa (Prime)

The Clovehitch Killer (Hulu)

The Nightshifter (Shudder)

Watch along and we'll chat soon.

This week we dig on Slaughterhouse Rulez, have fun with Dr. Phibes' second outing, and admire Bless the Child's intentions more than its execution.

Next week: 90s-ish stuff! We're watching:

Cut

Fallen

Cast a Deadly Spell

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

Ep. 325: Airtight and Sticky

This week, we enjoy the lurid weirdness of Perfection, and appreciate the historical significance of Pulgasari. We agree that Abattoir has some interesting ideas--some would say too many--sunk by weird character choices and awful dialog.

Next week, we're watching a weird little potpourri:

Bless the Child (Prime)

Slaughterhouse Rulez (VOD)

Dr. Phibes Rises Again (Prime)

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

Ep. 324: Spider Sequins & Gore Shrimp

This week, we loved Most Beautiful Island, dug the gore in The Ruins, and were underwhelmed by Penny Dreadful.

Up next: Each one pick one!

Matt picks: Pulgasari

Charlie Picks: The Perfection

Josh Picks: Abattoir

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