Episode 260- Rare Exports (2010)
Release Date: 12/23/2019
Hi EMTs! We thought that, while we're sheltering-in-place, we might as well watch some movies and record a few bonus episodes for you. We hope you enjoy our first foray into recording ourselves remotely with the 1985 children's (?!) film "Return to Oz." Special topics for your consideration include: an outright celebration of Fairuza Balk, what happens when you decide that the Scarecrow, the Tinman and the Cowardly Lion are an afterthought, one of the scariest horror movies we've ever seen and whether or not Dorothy is the actual villain of this movie. Oh and by the way- it was Fritz the Cat,...info_outline Episode 273- Black Death (2010)
In this week's episode, we are discussing the 2010 film "Black Death" but please be assured that we did not glibly choose this movie; we picked it back in February to be the final installment of our month of folk horror and the actual episode has been recorded for a couple weeks. So, not ill-intentioned but certainly ill-timed. That said, let's make the best of it. Special topics for your consideration include: a deep and abiding knowledge of both British crime drama actors and the finances of 50 Cent, the current level of dopeness of our haircuts, what this movie is trying to be and does that...info_outline Episode 272- Village of the Damned (1995)
Hi EMTs. First of all, we'd like to say that we hope you are all well and healthy, both physically and emotionally, in this worrisome and trying time. We are here with you. Second, we hope that you can get a break from the real world with us for 45ish minutes today and it's our absolute privilege to be able to do that. Third, good lord, this movie is a disaster. This week we're talking about the 1995 John Carpenter remake, "Village of the Damned." Special topics for your consideration include: when it is okay to correct us (when we're actually wrong, obvs!), Buck Flowers and an utterly...info_outline Episode 271- The Wicker Man (1973)
In this week's episode, we're tentatively easing back into the story of "The Wicker Man" with the original 1973 film starring the one, the only, Christopher Lee. Special topics for your consideration include: expectations for Christopher Lee's hair, expectations for the wig that your butt double is wearing, a hearty discussion about Easter candy, talking serious about bathroom time, the problem with eating wings and the fact that this movie *might* be a musical...? Did you miss our episode about the absolutely bananas Nic Cage remake of this film from 2006? We got you covered, it's Episode...info_outline Episode 270- Midsommar (2019)
This week we're kicking off our solstice celebration and a month of folk horror movies with the 2019 Ari Aster film "Midsommar." Special topics for your consideration include: the true horrors of the world, a scale of how attractive one must be to get away with terrible behavior, crappy academics, beautiful cinematography and cartoon mallets. Did you miss our first Ari Aster film? Check out Episode 224- "Hereditary." Do you just really like terrible male partners? How about Episode 44- "Scream," Episode 45- "Rosemary's Baby" or Episode 54- "The Shining?" And if you just can't get enough...info_outline Episode 269- Can't Hardly Wait (1998)
In this week's episode, the finale of our ~*~month of love~*~, we're deviating a bit from our usual horror to talk about one of Katie's all-time favorite movies: the 1998 teen romp "Can't Hardly Wait." Special topics for your consideration include: having dirty thoughts that one need not be ashamed of, a perfect time capsule of the late 1990s, an absolute celebration of giant pants, a cavalcade of actors you recognize and the excellency of The Replacements always and forever. Can't hardly wait to see more of Jennifer Love Hewitt's work? Check out Episode 8- "I Know What You Did Last...info_outline Episode 268- The Love Witch (2016)
In this week's episode, the third in our ~*~month of love~*~, we're discussing the 2016 film "The Love Witch." Special topics for your consideration include: a lot of discussion about the messages of this film, questioning the possibility of satire, the raw deal that Trish got, having friends in the Ren Faire: a relationship deal breaker?, the exhaustion that must come along with being in a coven and some horse-based fundraising ideas. Into witches? Check out our other episodes on witchy films: Episode 15- "The Blair Witch Project," Episode 23- "Suspiria (the original)," Episode 33- "The...info_outline Episode 267- Warm Bodies (2013)
In this week's episode, the second episode in our ~*~month of love~*~, we're discussing the 2013 zombie romantic comedy (zomromcom) "Warm Bodies." Special topics for your consideration include: the concept of using 'Romeo & Juliet' as the basis for your romcom: a good idea? (not really, as it turns out), slow zombies with a high Dexterity, and probably our most tangent-filled episode to date* including diverging opinions on Coronas, Paul Rudd, My Chemical Romance and a discussion of a variety of other topics not related to this movie! *We think this says more about the movie than it does...info_outline Episode 266- The Loved Ones (2009)
In this week's episode, we're kicking off our ~*~month of love~*~ for February with the 2009 Australian film, "The Loved Ones." Special topics for your consideration include: expecting one kind of movie and getting a vastly different one, the most earworm-y of songs, testing the limits of our tolerance for gore, a tale of a weird night on makeout lane and hey-- don't lie to us, we remember being vodka drunk teens! Do you find your Aussie horror experience lacking? If so, check out Episode 11- "The Babadook", Episode 89- "Queen of the Damned" (oddly enough, it's lightly Australian!) or Episode...info_outline Episode 265- Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988)
After what felt like interminable weeks in the 1990s, we're taking a step back. This week, we are discussing the 1988 film "Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama," which is kind of a longer title than it is a film. Special topics for your consideration include: the golden age of underboob, reminiscing about Charles Band's greatest hits, chainwallets: a good idea?, the problems with Uncle Impie, a love of Linnea Quigley and Demon Stamina without spellcasting capabilities. Do you love Linnea Quigley? Perhaps you'd enjoy Episode 9- "Silent Night Deadly Night," Episode 17- "Return of...info_outline
In this year's annual Christmas horror movie extravaganza, we're heading to Finland and the great wonders of snowmobiles, wolf traps and pig heads. That's right, we're discussing the 2010 film "Rare Exports." Some other topics you may want to consider: a positive affirmation about the great outdoors being for...well, not us, perks of being lowkey terrifying, a most Pittsburgh treat and a buncha naked old Santas.
