Episode 284- Weekend at Bernie's II (1993)
Release Date: 06/08/2020
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 Episode 290- Chillaxin! with Jurassic Park (1993)
In this week's episode, we ventured into the great outdoors and recorded on Allen's front porch, so please be aware that you will hear some car noises and we also get distracted by several passersby. Look, it's summer, there's a pandemic, and we gotta chillax. It's okay though, because we're talking about the 1993 summer blockbuster hit "Jurassic Park." Is it a horror movie? Not really. Is it horrific? Yes, it is, who the hell wants to bring back dinosaurs? Special topics for your consideration include: menacing a child, being at one's Jeff Goldblum-iest, terrible body doubles, fantastic...info_outline Episode 289- Crawl (2019)
In this week's edition of "well, it's a movie" we tackle the 2019 reptile thriller (?) "Crawl." Yowza. Special topics for your consideration include: a condemnation of Floridians, the high stakes world of out-swimming an alligator, deciding to inform your child from a young age that they are in fact an apex predator, things Barry Pepper knows about alligators and for gods sake, it's a BASEMENT. Into reptilian/amphibian horror? May we recommend Episode 24- "Grabbers" (it kinda counts!), Episode 152- "Anaconda" and Episode 238- "Frogs"? Hey, we have a subreddit! We're...info_outline Episode 288- The Crazies (2010)
In a very Britney Spears move...whoops, we did it again. Who knew "The Crazies" was about a virus?! We genuinely just thought it was about zombies. I guess this is why being fun is better than knowing things. Anyway, here we are: the 2010 remake of "The Crazies." Special topics for your consideration include: the Ogden Marsh Parking Authority's vehicle booting capabilities, extremely inconsistent symptoms of an illness, the possibility of simply having a lot on your plate, weapons available to one on a farm and Timothy Olyphant: a sheriff, and a particular face. Everyone, thank you so...info_outline Episode 287- Child's Play (2019)
In this week's episode, we're going back to the well of one of Katie's favorite franchises with the 2019 remake of a classic, "Child's Play." 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. Happy Pride month, everyone! Please don't forget to donate to National Lawyers Guild for our fundraising drive to support Black Lives Matter. All you have to do is donate to National...info_outline Episode 285- The Gravedancers (2006)
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)

Anyway, onto this week's episode. Yes, we know, we know, just because a movie has zombies does not make it a horror movie, but that's neither here nor there. This movie is actually horrifying. We're talking about the sequel to our most recent bonus episode, 1993's "Weekend at Bernie's II." Special topics for your consideration include: becoming a full-on sociopath overnight, what the hell happened to Gwen?, Terry Kiser continuing to be the GOAT even as actual goats parade around him, a complete lack of understanding about voodoo and the possibility that this movie was actually written by a team of children.
We have done approximately one billion zombie movies, so here are some of our favorite episodes: 92- "Dead Snow," 130- "Pontypool," 160- "Shaun of the Dead" and Episode 227- "Zombi 2." LUCIO!
