Special topics for your consideration include: a stroll down toy memory lane, getting Detective Mike as your new dad, a compare and contrast of living with Chucky vs. a real life toddler, finding comedy in spraying a young child with blood, the bonkers marketing decisions made by the Buddi company and a love letter to Brad Dourif. Our National Lawyers Guild fundraising drive to support Black Lives Matter ends TOMORROW, so if you have some wiggle...info_outline Episode 286- Knife + Heart (2018)
In this week's episode, we took on a listener request to review a queer horror film in honor of Pride month and sight unseen we selected the 2018 French film "Knife + Heart." Special topics for your consideration include: a very shame-filled upbringing, giallo tropes in action, a plea tothe universe for Pride parades, learning to type with other parts of your body and 'artsy fartsy' as a subcategory of aesthetics.

In this week's episode, we're tackling a listener suggestion from friend of the podcast Leah Ashley-- the absolutely horrendous 2006 supernatural horror film "The Gravedancers." THANKS A LOT. Special topics for your consideration include: smelling your partner's jacket just for funsies, knowing anything about Chopin, a surprising connection to "Bring it On," a very special listener mail and CULPEPPER! This episode also features an extremely great outro song by A. Wallis called "EMT." Seriously, we have the best listeners, hands down. Please don't forget to donate to National Lawyers...info_outline Episode 284- Weekend at Bernie's II (1993)
First, Black lives matter. We probably don't need to tell you, our wonderful listeners, but we're also trying to do some good with our platform. On that note, we're doing a fundraising drive: please donate to National Lawyers Guild (nlg.org) and forward us a receipt at send us a screenshot or tag us on social media. We'll be matching 10% of your donations and if we hit $2,500, I (Katie) will touch a horse. On video. We already have the horse lined up. On one hand, I want to raise a lot of money for a seriously good cause; on the other hand, I kind of want to faint when I think about actually...info_outline BONUS EPISODE #5- Weekend at Bernie's (1989)
I mean...why the hell not? In this brand new bonus episode, we're discussing the 1989 masterpiece (?) "Weekend at Bernie's." We hope you like it.info_outline Episode 283- Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988)
In this week's episode, we are rolling around in a pile of bad jokes and misunderstandings with the 1988 horror (?) comedy "Elvira: Mistress of the Dark." Special topics for your consideration include: imagining a world in which Tim Burton directed this film, 1980s perverts, the concept of a Vegas show about nothing and surprisingly less titty bell than one might expect. Unpleasant dreams, EMTs! We have really never covered a film quite like this one. If you like it, you may also like Episode 274- "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken." Related, maybe check out some of our favorite horror comedies,...info_outline Episode 282- Amityville Horror (2005)

Special topics for your consideration include: Werewolf Ambulance beauty tips, Michael Bay and his Michael Bay energy, Steve Miller as a lifestyle, an absurd number of times to take one's shirt off (but if one has those abs, should one not??) and the age old question of what kills people: houses, or people?

You know that times have been trying. We know that times have been trying. We know that everyone could use a bit more confused joy in their lives, so that's why we wanted you to watch the 1980 Fulci film "City of the Living Dead." Hoo boy. Special topics for your consideration include: the 'horseshoes and hand grenades' approach to filmmaking that Lucio Fulci employs, a squishy rotting bubblegum baby and a maggot storm!, a completely discarded timeline for funeral services, and Jerry: what is his deal? Oh, Lucio. Catch Fulci's other works with Episode 72- "The Beyond" and Episode 227-...info_outline BONUS EPISODE #4- Titanic: corrections & retractions (1997)
Okay, so maybe no one played Leonardo DiCaprio's mother in this film, and maybe the character of Fabrizio isn't Irish. At least now we know, because we watched "Titanic"! Well, we sort of watched "Titanic." Please join us on the conclusion of our own personal overseas voyage with this episode of corrections and retractions from Bonus Episode #3. We hope you like it.info_outline Episode 280- The Evil Dead (1981)
In this week's episode, we're headed to a dumpy little house in the woods with the 1981 original entry into its film series, "The Evil Dead." Special topics for your consideration include: scenes that do not age well, the stereotype of an "Evil Dead dude," Davey & Goliath & Gumby, Allen's grave mistake (thanks, quarantine brainfog!) and lessons learned from this movie: never cross a bridge with a warning sign! Never enter a basement that is locked with chains! And NEVER play pranks, ya jerk. Did you miss our discussion on the third installment of the series? You can catch it in Episode...info_outline
In this week's episode, we're making the best of a bummer time (and, let's face it, a bummer movie) with the 2003 Korean film "A Tale of Two Sisters." Special topics for your consideration include: was it a mistake to cover one of horror history's most depressing films right about now?, trying to find an apt analogy for a weird situation, alternate theories about the ending, youthful skincare and bad dadding.
