The Dread Lottery

025 - A Dark Song - Housebound show art 025 - A Dark Song - Housebound

The Dread Lottery

In which Red & Puffer dust off a recording from a few months prior, that concerns, weirdly enough, two movies about being confined to the house, A DARK SONG (2016) & HOUSEBOUND (2014). Life got in the way of releasing it until now but, wow, how fitting. Anyway, they're both terrific movies and it was a fun conversation.

024 - Dawn of the Dead - People Under the Stairs show art 024 - Dawn of the Dead - People Under the Stairs

The Dread Lottery

In which Red and Puffer really bite into the meat metaphor while unpacking two classic, sadly still relevant social commentaries by masters of horror Romaro and Craven: DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978) and THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS (1991). This was a great draw because these are as close to perfect horror movies as one could hope for. We uncover some unexpected stuff. Good eatin'.

023 - Bride of Frankenstein - Ginger Snaps show art 023 - Bride of Frankenstein - Ginger Snaps

The Dread Lottery

In which your hosts Red & Puffer finally kick off the new year by tearing into two beloved films about women and monsters, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935) & GINGER SNAPS (2001). Curses, mothers, brides, victims, fate, and the roles women are consigned to. But we have fun unpacking these, even if there's one we don't care to ever watch again. Good stuff.

022 - Bubba Ho-Tep - Silent Hill show art 022 - Bubba Ho-Tep - Silent Hill

The Dread Lottery

In which your hosts try to work up enthusiasm for a conversation about almost-obscure cult horror comedy BUBBA HO-TEP (2002) & video game adaptation SILENT HILL (2006). Gotta be honest with you all, this not a great episode. Who knows what happened but we weren't feeling it. On the upside, it is our shortest episode.

021 - 30 Days of Night - The Purge Election Year show art 021 - 30 Days of Night - The Purge Election Year

The Dread Lottery

In which your hosts Red & Puffer go wild on a couple of people in peril movies: the ruthless vampire hoards on the frozen town of Barstow, Alaska in 30 DAYS OF NIGHT (2007) and the lawless hoards and crazy aristocracy on to poor people of D.C. in THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR (2016). We were a bit tired after a Meeting House relocation, but the Dread Lottery was benevolent and offered up a pretty solid discussion otherwise. Much fun was had.

The Dread Lottery

In which your hosts Deep Red & Producer Puffer take a moment away from The Dread Lottery to reflect on the year that was. We pick 12 of our favorite movies from the Lottery so far and on-the-fly construct a film festival of complementary double bills. We cannot escape the dark magic of the Lottery. Happy Samhain.

020 - The Haunting - Let the Right One In show art 020 - The Haunting - Let the Right One In

The Dread Lottery

In which Red & Puffer dig into two classic horror movies, THE HAUNTING (1963) and LET THE RIGHT ONE IN (2008). For this last episode recorded in our former digs, we find a couple of threads that turn out to be uniquely revelatory, as we see the world through the eyes of a couple troubled outsiders. A surprising but fun thinker.

019 - Hereditary - Legend of Hell House show art 019 - Hereditary - Legend of Hell House

The Dread Lottery

In which your hosts, Red & Puffer, return from a brief production hiatus during which we relocated the Dread Lottery Meeting House, to examine the similarities between two movies in which, coincidentally, house & home play a central roll, HEREDITARY (2018) & THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE (1973). Possession, perversion, demon worship, and the decadence of class privilege, we go deep and get to some stuff.

018 - 10 Cloverfield Lane - A Field in England show art 018 - 10 Cloverfield Lane - A Field in England

The Dread Lottery

In which your hosts get bucolic and wander through the hedgerow to search for esoteric connection between 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE (2016) and A FIELD IN ENGLAND (2013). Red & Puffer contemplate folk horror, aliens, abductions, and mushrooms. We have new favorite and one best described as 'meh'. But a good time was had by all.

017 - Battle Royale - Train to Busan show art 017 - Battle Royale - Train to Busan

The Dread Lottery

In which your hosts dig deeper into the world of thrilling Asian horror, this time with Japan's BATTLE ROYALE (2000) & the South Korean TRAIN TO BUSAN (2016). The body count is high, and the mettle of humanity is put to the test under horrific circumstances. But great movies makes for great discussion. Extreme conversation!

More Episodes

In which The Lottery sends your hosts to meet the family, and they try to keep their wits about them while discussing GET OUT (2017) & HOUSE (1977). How these troubled secrets and dark histories express themselves is VASTLY different. From the wacky to the disturbing. We dig these movies so it was a tough one.
