info_outline Episode 97 - Oh, the Non-Horror! 03/07/2021
Episode 97 - Oh, the Non-Horror! Taking a shortcut to movies we just felt like watching, we took a bit of a break this week and only mildly regretted our choices. In this episode, Corey and Maddy discuss the Weird Al masterpiece, 'UHF' and the Seth Green's magnum opus, 'Can't Hardly Wait'.
info_outline Episode 96 - Deadly Splits 02/13/2021
Episode 96 - Deadly Splits This week we explore the delightful world of childhood best friends, from robot girls next door to - - robots in costumes, to nothing else because we're only reviewing two movies. First is Wes Craven's cult classic 'Deadly Friend' and the long awaited gritty adaptation of 'Banana Splits' none of us realized we were waiting for.
info_outline Episode 95 - It Couldn’t Happen Here 01/16/2021
Episode 95 - It Couldn’t Happen Here Starting off the New Year with some metal and mayhem. A good cop goes bionic in the 1980s satirical sci-fi classic, Robocop, while Soviet soldiers head to Germany during World War 2 to discover the true limits of medicine and madness in Frankenstein's Army.
info_outline Episode 94 - Found Footage-’Tober’: Blair Witchin’ 12/04/2020
Episode 94 - Found Footage-’Tober’: Blair Witchin’ Only four weeks behind, Found Footage-Tober finally meets its end with the mother of all found footage films: Blair Witch, and her sister sequels. Viral marketing, shaky cameras, creepy forests. Everything you need for a low budget masterpiece.
info_outline Episode 93 - Found Footage-Tober: Behind the News Station: The Rise of Serial Killing Nutcases 11/07/2020
Episode 93 - Found Footage-Tober: Behind the News Station: The Rise of Serial Killing Nutcases As October stretches into November, we continue our found footage journey with a couple of favorites, 'Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon', and 'WNUF Halloween Special'.

info_outline Episode 91 - Alan Came a Smithee 09/19/2020
Episode 91 - Alan Came a Smithee These are dark times. Corey and Maddy have dived into the pits of depravity that horror has to offer, films so heinous that they were callously disowned by the monsters who created them. This week we discuss 'Bloodsucking Pharaohs in Pittsburgh' and 'Raging Angels'
info_outline Episode 90 - Sucker for a Sequel 08/29/2020
Episode 90 - Sucker for a Sequel I think we all know sequels are 100% better 100% of the time than the movies before them. Who can forget the groundbreaking cinematography of Nightmare on Elm Street 2, the pathos of LL Cool J in Halloween H2O, or the sheer talent of Tommy Wiseau in the long anticipated follow up to Samurai Cop, Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance? So it only made sense for Maddy and Corey to finally approach the Fright Night 2 and House 2 Legacies, because after all - - they're, um, I guess they're both great.
info_outline Episode 89 - Melt Movies 07/24/2020
Episode 89 - Melt Movies As 2020 oozes a few months closer to its end, we're just struggling not to dissolve in our desk chairs as we review two classics of the melt movie sub-genre, 1987's 'Street Trash', and 1988's 'Slime City': schlocky, gross, and surprisingly colorful. Just--try not to eat anything while you watch them, and definitely don't touch that bottle in the back of the cupboard. You never know what could be inside...
info_outline Episode 87 - Of Fish People and Space 03/29/2020
Episode 87 - Of Fish People and Space While we're all stuck inside, it's absolutely imperative that you avoid any unnameable colors emitted from intergalactic meteorites, and under no circumstances should you have contact with your fish-like neighbors. To pass the time, why don't you listen to this week's episode of us discussing 'Dagon' and 'Color out of Space'?
info_outline Episode 86 - Disastrous Days 03/23/2020
Episode 86 - Disastrous Days This isn't your grandma's disaster movie episode. Only half of it is. The other half is either your mom's or your disaster movie episode - - probably. This week Corey and Maddy discuss the original 'Poseidon Adventure' and 'Armageddon'. Yeah, that movie we all forget Owen Wilson was in.
info_outline Episode 85 - Corny Creeps 03/02/2020
Episode 85 - Corny Creeps No stale movie treats here. The popcorn is fresh, and I, a madman am ready to bring you the latest episode of Hallow-Holics Anonymous, in which I make a poor attempt to reference the films we discuss this week, 'Popcorn' and 'I, Madman', a trip down memory lane about b movie horror and cheesy pulp novels.
info_outline Episode 84 - The Final(girl) Countdown 02/23/2020
Episode 84 - The Final(girl) Countdown In this week's (and maybe month's) episode we discuss two very different movies released the same year with very similar titles and one of the same lead actors, Final Girl, and The Final Girls.

info_outline Episode 83 - A Not-So-Special TV Episode 02/02/2020
Episode 83 - A Not-So-Special TV Episode With our unofficial season premiere, we delve into the joys of tv in the last decade of horror. No, there's no 'top 10' here, folks, just a random assortment, because as you well know - - neither Corey nor Maddy can count.
info_outline Episode 82 - Christmas Gifts: Nazis and Vampires 01/06/2020
Episode 82 - Christmas Gifts: Nazis and Vampires In this our final episode of season 3, we reflect on the last decade and the horrific (but amazing) films it brought us, and then we dive right into our final gift-pisode. 'Vampires in Havana' and 'Iron Sky', two movies with absolutely nothing in common are the subject of this season finale.
info_outline Episode 81 - Christmas Gifts: Tongue-Tastic 12/29/2019
Episode 81 - Christmas Gifts: Tongue-Tastic Christmas has gone and went, and while we recorded this special episode on boxing day, we were delighted to discuss the only virgin slasher 'Cherry Falls' and accompanying bizarre tongue terror, 'Killer Tongue'.
info_outline Episode 80 - Christmas Gifts: Devils and Faeries 12/21/2019
Episode 80 - Christmas Gifts: Devils and Faeries Just shy of Christmas, our second gift of the holiday season - - Maddy and Corey ineptly bring you the beginning of their charming Christmas songwriting, and discuss the wonders and merriment of 'Mister Frost' as well as 'Thale'.
info_outline Episode 79 - Christmas Gifts: Are you a Good Witch or a Bad Witch? 12/04/2019
Episode 79 - Christmas Gifts: Are you a Good Witch or a Bad Witch? Just click your heels together, my dear, and say 'there's no podcast like this' three times, and you'll find your way home. In the first of our 'Christmas gift exchange' episodes, Corey reviews girl power witch epic 'Practical Magic', while Maddy explores the demented psyche of an evil ancient coven in 'Lords of Salem'.
info_outline Episode 78 - Bad Pets 12/01/2019
Episode 78 - Bad Pets It isn't easy house-training a house-pet; especially when you know they're smarter than you. In this episode we tackle the challenges of caring for monkeys and dogs, whilst simultaneously dodging evil government projects and Michael Ironsides. With a quick chat about November's 'Horror Pack', we also explore the enigma of 'Monkey Shines' and 'Watchers'.
info_outline Episode 77 - In Like Jaramusch 11/24/2019
Episode 77 - In Like Jaramusch A cup of coffee, a pack of stale cigarettes, and a run-down diner. That's all you need when you're hanging out with Corey and Maddy tonight as they discuss some of Jim Jaramusch's latest classics, including 'Only Lovers Left Alive' and 'The Dead Don't Die'. Maybe when it's all over Tom Waits will finally know the answer to the question--what's he building in there?
info_outline Episode 76 - Poppin' and Warlockin' 11/19/2019
Episode 76 - Poppin' and Warlockin' Grab your rune stones, hide the satanic grimoire pages from Satan, it's time for a Warlock retrospective! In this episode, we discuss the brilliance that is Julian Sands, alongside Warlock 1 and 2 - - and yes, even part 3.
info_outline Episode 75 - The Babysitters Club 11/09/2019
Episode 75 - The Babysitters Club Kids. Can't live with them. Can't--I don't know, perform some weird satanic ritual without getting an HOA complaint these days. Thank god for babysitters, right? The good. The bad. It doesn't really matter as long as you have one this Saturday night. Join Maddy and Corey this week as we discuss the creepy tension and loving 80s send-up of 'The House of the Devil', and a somehow more light-hearted murderous adventure in 'The Babysitter'.
info_outline Episode 74 - Breaking Up is Hard to Do 11/07/2019
Episode 74 - Breaking Up is Hard to Do They say that breaking up is hard to do. Who says it? I don't know, people in the 60s, Neil Sadaka, The Carpenters. The point is, this episode is all about the inevitable heartbreak and murder that happens every time a relationship ends. We discuss the pitfalls of allowing Glenn Close to be sexy in 'Fatal Attraction' and the unfortunate love of a girl and some hands in 'May'.
