The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, we are celebrating our 250th episode with a look at what is arguably considered one of the scariest horror films of all time; The Exorcist.  The 1973 movie by William Friedkin that was so terrifying that it led to people fainting in theaters and enraging  the religious right in the early 70’s.  But does this movie truly deserve the title of scariest film?  And is it really Anti-Catholic?  Well saddle up, cause we are going in deep as we analyze the world of Pazuzu with our review of The Exorcist.   MERCH AND ANNOUCEMENTS Our co-host, John...

This week, John and Brian travel to Transylvania to visit the crypt of Count Dracula….well not quite, we actually visit 1995 and Dracula’s crypt is full of Leslie Nielsen Naked Gun Jokes, Peter McNichol eating flies, and of course…an enema.  We are talking about the horror parody from comedic master Mel Brooks, “Dracula Dead and Loving It.”  A movie that feels like a weird sibling to 1974’s Young Frankenstein; a parody of both the early 90’s classic horror monster revival ushered in by 1992’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula and a comedic homage to Hammer Films.  But...

This week, Brian and John open the box and venture to the world of The Hellraiser Franchise.  Now while we will eventually get to Hulu's Hellraiser Remake, we felt it was necessary to look at the absolute worst moment in the franchise.  We are of course talking about 2011's Hellraiser Revelations.  This movie is on a whole other level of bad; and we aren't just saying that cause it features "Fat/Wish.com/Great Value Pinhead".  This movie was one in a series of copyright grabs by everyone's favorite creep, Harvey Weinstein and Dimension Films in an effort to retain the...

This week as we drift out of our Halloween Hangover, John has forced Brian to finally confront his distaste for The Scream Franchise.  Long time listeners of the podcast will know that despite Brian being an aficianado of cinematic terror, Wes Craven's 1996 meta-filled opus stands as a very consequential film in Brian's view of how the horror movie was changed irrevocably as a result of it's success.   So it is a franchise analysis AND a therapy session, a trick and treat if you will.  So grab your ghost face mask and book of meta movie knowledge as we crack open The Scream...

Happy Halloween Psychos Nation! As this is dropping on All Hallows Eve, I wanted to give you all a very special treat.   John and I were lucky enough to attend The Eerie Horror Fest earlier in the month and we had the pleasure of talking with a number of celebrity guests.  This first one was one of the ones I was most interested in meeting.   John Adams and Tobey Poser are the husband and wife team, who along with their children, have truly shaken up the indie horror landscape with their terrifying film, "Hellbender" which holds a 97% one Rotten Tomatoes and has  In talking...

It feels like forever since we released an episode PsychosNation!  But after a brief hiatus that saw us travel to be part of The Eerie Horror Fest, we are back with some amazing new episodes recorded inside the festival itself.  This week, we are venturing to the bowels of streaming hell as we take a look at the newest cinematic offering from Rob Zombie with "The Munsters".  A movie that as of late has hit a mixed bag of reviews with some finding charm in the bizarro color scheme, zany characters, and well....the fact it wasn't as terrible as Universal Studios's trailer...

The Cinema Psychos Show

It's not everyday that we get an indie film to review.  And this one comes straight from Germany!  Filmmaker Zetkin Yikilmis unleashes her newest film, "PINK RABBIT".  The film details the bizarre journey, concocted by an equally bizarre man dressed like a  Pink Rabbit, that a young mother named Martha has to endure on the way home to her young son and husband.  The movie pays homage to a number of bizarre and surreal tropes from other genre films while at the same time forcing us to ask the question of whether all the horrors that the Pink Rabbit puts Martha through...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, we are taking a trip to Hollywood and symbolism in Director & modern horror maestro, Jordan Peele in his newest film, NOPE.  Nope is an interesting movie as on the surface it feels very much like a throw back to the old school monster movies of the 70's and 80's.  But in classic Jordan Peele style, there is  way more meaning behind the film..and moments of levity between the terror.  However, with a knock out film like his first film "GET OUT" and the "meh" reception to his second film, "US" how does "NOPE" stack up?  Does it deliver the scares and laughs or...

This week, we've got a very special guest on for a very special interview.  Award winning filmmaker and the brains (not for consumption zombie fans) behind the Eerie Horror Fest, John C. Lyons stops by the podcast to discuss his journey as a filmmaker and storyteller, his most recent film, Unearth which has garnered critical acclaim as brilliant example of Environmental Horror, and of course his plans for a jam-packed Eerie Horror Fest that is truly rising from the dead this October 5-8th at the Warner Theater in Erie, PA.   Episode links!

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, Brian and John try to analyze the age old conflict between nerds.....Star Trek vs Star Wars.....I mean Practical FX vs CGI.  Yes a war that has been waged  on between cinephiles in the lobbies of movie theaters across the world since 1993.  But why do these techniques in creating the fantastical have to be polar opposites?  Why is there so much love for what arguably are less realistic and more expensive practical fx and so much vitrol and critique over computer generated visual effects?  Is there room in the big tent of filmmaking for both of these camps?...
