Josh and Kelly are joined by friend of the pod Allison Dickson to discuss the Supreme Court draft that leaked recently that will likely overturn Roe v. Wade. This is an unusual episode in that we focus on the real life horror (which, as it happens, we can't turn off). There is a lot of swearing and some crying. This is not an edited episode; you wi…
 
Josh and Kelly discuss the new release X (available to rent across streaming platforms). Topics include aging, sex, feminism, music, body positivity and the difficulties of maintaining an honest relationship when you also have a tendency to murder people. There are spoilers throughout this episode. Follow us: Twitter: https://twitter.com/PressPlayS…
 
We're joined by our friends Ben, Keith and Brad from the Movies & a Meal podcast to discuss the horror-adjacent movie Assault on Precinct 13! It's John Carpenter's second movie and it's very fun to discuss. Follow Movies & a Meal: Subscribe to Movies & a Meal: https://t.co/DILJujXenx (they're also on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify and anywhere e…
 
We had an absolute blast discussing Event Horizon with Chris Hanada and Tanner Kling (from Retrofit). Their series Breakwater is on Snapchat; you'll definitely want to check that out! As always, there are spoilers in this episode. (Also a discussion of actual haunted things/places we've experienced.) Also, there is a part in this where Kelly refers…
 
We love a good possession movie here, and so you can imagine how delighted we were to discuss Agnes with director/screenwriter Mickey Reece and its star, Molly Quinn. While it starts as a religious horror movie, it becomes an exploration of what happens when you don't process your trauma (SPOILER: nothing good). NOTE: There are spoilers in this epi…
 
We're back and discussing werewolves with Mishna Wolff, who wrote Werewolves Within! We discussed two staples of the genre, both from 1981: An American Werewolf in London and The Howling. Join us and keep off the moors and as far away from the Colony as possible. NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. Next week, we're discussing Agnes with . Fol…
 
This week, we explore two different abandoned asylums with our friend and 80s High podcaster Chris Armstrong! We start with Session 9 (actually shot in Danvers!) and finish with House on Haunted Hill. NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. Next week, we're discussing The Howling and Am American Werewolf in London with Mishna Woolf. Follow Chris …
 
Here's the second part of our George C. Scott double feature with Allison Dickson! We discuss Exorcist III, debate the better ending of The Exorcist and also do a quick round of This or That. NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. Follow Allison Dickson: Twitter: https://twitter.com/MsAllieD Website: https://t.co/uTDzHZzqLf Buy The Other Mrs. Mi…
 
We planned to have a double feature with bestselling author Allison Dickson but, as tends to happen, we talked too much. Here is part one of our discussion; we talk about horror in general and the George C. Scott movie The Changeling! Part two (Exorcist 3) will be up later this week. NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. Follow Allison Dickson:…
 
This episode is a real treat--writer and producer Rodney Barnes joins us to discuss Blacula and Scream, Blacula, Scream. We chat about blaxploitation as a whole, voodoo and vampires, the perfect Dracula performance and some fun Hollywood stories (and much more)! NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. Next week, we'll be discussing The Changeling…
 
Social media influencer and horror fan Jessica Blevins stopped by to chat with us about Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween and Scream! (Three of our most favorite horror movies and franchises.) We touch on other installments and other horror movies, plus a fun round of "this or that." NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. In our next two episod…
 
What's your favorite scary movie? So far (and for this year, at least), our answer is the 2022 Scream. We love the references, the "requel" term, the triumphant return of "Red Right Hand" and the #forWes return to brutality. This movie is a love letter to fans and that love is very requited. NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. We discuss it v…
 
We chose a double feature based on religious horror and found an accidentally perfect pairing. Both deal with the result of unprocessed trauma and its impact on religion (in Saint Maud, it leads to a powerful attachment to an offshoot of Catholicism and God; in The Vigil, it led to a renunciation of faith from a formerly Orthodox Jewish man) and wh…
 
So this past year's been really fun, huh? Very calm, very chill, very full of excellent movies! (Well, at least that last one's true.) Join us as we break down the best of the year and what we're excited for in 2022. (And uh, "break down" may be putting it mildly.) NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. Next week, we'll be discussing St. Maud (a…
 
We know we said that we were going to do Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser 2, but we are rapidly approaching Christmas and, since neither of us are feeling festive or jolly, we thought maybe some holiday-themed movies would help. So that's how we came to watch the other four Silent Night Deadly Night movies. And the remake. And Christmas Evil (j…
 
Jason Klamm joined us for a fun chat about Day of the Dead and Land of the Dead! We're all fans of George Romero's and the way that the series succeeds as horror movies and as allegories. What we weren't necessarily expecting? Just how well they also work as metaphor for life in a pandemic. Links Mentioned: Watch The Last House on Dead End Street: …
 
We know we said that we were going to discuss Freaks and Nightbreed, but it turns out that those are maybe not the movies we felt like watching and discussing. Instead, we decided maybe it was time to spread some holiday cheer. But then we were remembered we were us, so instead, we chose to discuss Silent Night Deadly Night and Black Christmas! NOT…
 
Is there a better horror pairing than Fright Night and The Lost Boys? That's what we're discussing today and both are easily two of Kelly's favorites. We explore vampire depictions in general and these two movies in particular, as well as what exactly Richard Gilmore (Ed Herrmann) is doing in The Lost Boys. NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode.…
 
In this episode, we discuss two of our favorite movies: I, Madman (literally the second horror movie Kelly saw and one she watched repeatedly growing up) and In the Mouth of Madness (one we both love but which Josh has watched weekly for literal years). The idea of living inside a book (or having a book come to life in the world we inhabit) sounds …
 
Josh and Kelly are joined by Rektok Ross (author of Ski Weekend, a fantastic book that you can buy right now) to discuss I Know What You Did Last Summer (the movie and the TV show). There are brief mentions of I Still Know What You Did Last Summer because Kelly is a bad friend who said it would be fun to watch and discuss that, too. NOTE: There are…
 
Josh and Kelly discuss Chopping Mall and Night of the Comet, two very 80s movies that are set in the mall. Sidebar topics include whether we would survive a Night of the Comet-type scenario, a scene in Chopping Mall that is horrifying to both of us and how if you can make a reference to Rocky IV, you DO make a reference to Rocky IV. NOTE: There are…
 
Josh and Kelly discuss the original Paranormal Activity and its newest sequel, Next of Kin. There's the obvious discussion of how they relate to The Blair Witch Project, but there are plenty of other worthy comparisons. Also, Kelly discusses her Halloween weekend movie marathon. NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. Other movies mentioned: The …
 
Josh and Kelly discuss the original Night of the Demons in this bonus episode. You can stream it on Prime or Shudder. NOTE: There are spoilers in this episode. Other movies mentioned: Return of the Living Dead, Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master On Tuesday's episode, we'll discuss the original Paranormal Activity and the new release, Paran…
 
Josh and Kelly watch two of Jamie Lee Curtis's other horror movies: Prom Night and Terror Train! If you haven't seen those, you're in for a real treat. (Both are streaming through Shudder.) As an added bonus, we also discuss the new Chucky and I Know What You Did Last Summer series (Chucky is on Syfy but season passes are available to buy on Vudu a…
 
Halloween Kills has been out for under a week and Twitter has some strong opinions. Author and fellow horror enthusiast Cooper S. Beckett is here to chat about the two most recent Halloween movies and the outcry. Sidebar discussions include favorite franchise sequels and music. NOTE: There are spoilers for both Halloween (2018) and Halloween Kills.…
 
We're not sure if you heard about this, but the Scream 5 trailer dropped today and we have thoughts.
