Episode 277- Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)
Release Date: 04/20/2020
In this week's episode, EPISODE THREE HUNDRED, can you even believe it?, we are discussing the obvious choice for one's tricentennial: the 2007 film "300." No, it's not a horror movie. Yes, it's a gimmicky choice. No, those abs aren't real. Other special topics for your consideration include: stabbing, a startling lack of planning by the God King and also by the regular King, building a giant pit to nowhere, more stabbing and a hearty reminder to tell your loved ones that they are your loved ones. Hey guys, thanks for being with us through 300 episodes and here's to 300 more. We love you....info_outline Episode 299- I'm Thinking of Ending Things (2020)
In this week's episode, we get what we deserve for trying to figure out what the internet is talking about with the new Netflix original film "I'm Thinking of Ending Things." Special topics for your consideration include: Jared Leto's poetry Tumblr, that football tv show, another patron saint of Werewolf Ambulance, our inner cynicism and musicals: a deal breaker? Toni Collette, if you're out there? You're the best. Get your fix of Toni with Episode 61- "Krampus," Episode 157- "The Sixth Sense," Episode 220- "Velvet Buzzsaw" and Episode 224- "Hereditary." Hey, we have a Patreon AND our first...info_outline Episode 298- Jawbreaker (1999)
In this week's episode, we're discussing a movie in Katie's wheelhouse that is decidedly not a horror movie, Shudder be damned. It's the 1999 teen film about the horrors of...popularity? It's "Jawbreaker." Special topics for your consideration include: the sadness of rewatching a movie of your youth and realizing it's actually not great at all, Tawny Kitaen and how to learn more about her, how the minds of popular kids actually work, the patron saints of this podcast (ex: Judy Greer) and a shocking dearth of references to the band Jawbreaker. Want more Judy Greer? Check out Episode 169-...info_outline Episode 297- Host (2020)
In this week's episode, we lean hard into the pandemic and manage to make a 50 minute episode about a 56 minute movie which, my friends, is absolutely a skill we should put on our LinkedIn profiles. We're talking about the 2020 film "Host" and some special topics for your consideration include: whether we would or would not seance, revisiting hard drinking again only to feel awful, the trials and tribulations of Zoom, trying to remember the film "Unfriended" and our trash memories striking again. If you enjoy films that take place on the internet, you may enjoy Episode 48- "Unfriended."...info_outline Episode 296- Paranormal Activity 3 (2011)
Because we can never reliably be trusted to do things in a way that makes sense, this week we're tackling 2011's third installment in the "Paranormal Activity" franchise without having ever seen the second. Special topics for your consideration include: having your home be haunted by a demon with perverted tendencies, a Bloody Mary epidemic, an extremely special visit from friend of the podcast Dan, a little behind-the-scenes of us watching the neighborhood and the return of deja-viewing. If you'd like to hear us talk about one other film in the series, you can hear the original "Paranormal...info_outline Episode 295- Pieces (1982)
First, you must know that Allen chose this film. Of course you already knew that. Second, holy ghost, what a movie. We're discussing the 1982 American-Spanish-Puerto Rican slasher "Pieces." Special topics for your consideration include: not having a real solid grasp on whether this is a comedy or just riddled with errors, a new classic food combo that we just invented, confusing the psychic women of Italian cinema and the fact that this movie has it all (if by "it all" you mean professors of kung fu, cops that are also tennis stars, grey-haired Ken dolls, the inferior Chris George, a...info_outline Episode 294- Leprechaun (1993)
In this week's episode, we're covering the request of one of our lovely subredditors, AbstrvctH3lga-- 1993's "Leprechaun," truly a film that launched a thousand shits. Special topics for your consideration include: recording outside with weed whackers, leaf blowers, barking dogs, chatty neighbors, cool cars and so many cicadas, Jennifer Aniston's sartorial choices, contemplating how this film possibly got 400 sequels and living our best leaking dumpster fire lives. I mean, go watch the other "Leprechauns" if you want but don't say we made you. They're Episode 39- "Leprechaun in the Hood"...info_outline Episode 293- Happy Death Day (2017)
In this week's episode, we're venturing into the land of temporal loops with the 2017 slasher comedy "Happy Death Day." Special topics for your consideration include: talking about astrology with two people who know absolutely nothing about astrology, conflating a nutter butter and a fluffer nutter, the suspicions that arise when a person bakes only one cupcake, nightmare tunnels on college campuses and problematic films of our youth. Oh, and we're still outside. People sure do love to drive by! Are you extremely into horror movies that take place on college campuses? If so, you may enjoy...info_outline Episode 292- Green Room (2015)
In this week's edition of "look Ma, I'm outside!" we are back on the porch for the 2017 nazi jagoff horror thriller "Green Room." Special topics for your consideration include: loving Patrick Stewart whether or not he's trying on a southern accent, extremely well-placed gore, a cavalcade of punk rock memories, and dogs: inherently frightening but also owners of cute wiggly lil butts. Into seeing Nazis get what they have coming to them? You might enjoy Episode 92- "Dead Snow." Also I am like 90% sure that Episode 164- "Puppet Master" had *something* to do with Nazis but honestly...info_outline Episode 291- In the Tall Grass (2019)
Truly it had been too long since we tackled a Netflix original film, so this week we're discussing the 2019 Stephen King/Joe Hill adaptation "In the Tall Grass." Somewhat appropriately for a film about the horrors of the great outdoors, this episode was recorded on Allen's porch. Special topics for your consideration include: Stephen King Madlibs, an absolute need for Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson, evil children and evil fields and evil dads-- these are a few of King's favorite things, the appearance of one of our favorite things (Australians playing Americans) and...what? Just what. Seriously,...info_outline
In this week's episode, the people have spoken. With a 51% majority vote, you chose "Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives." Because of course you did. Special topics for your consideration include: extremely rad 80s haircuts, the problem of identical male actors, dance sex, the absolute pinnacle of Vanilla Ice's efforts and some things that would only fly for a 10 year old in Delaware in the 1980s.
God help us, this is our fifth foray into this franchise. Check out the others with Episode 32- "Part VII: The New Blood," Episode 117- "Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan," Episode 141- "Friday the 13th" and Episode 259- "Jason X."
