This week we turn to Francis Ford Copolla's creature of the night, Dracula. Specifically, Bram Stoker's Dracula. A film that seeks to adapt Bram Stoker's original novel while making … Continue reading Episode 16 – Bram Stoker’s Dracula (Where did all the sexy vampires come from?)

Episode 15 – Halloween (2018)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-rcmk7-9d9905 October is wrapping up and what better way to end the month than with a movie with an increasingly confusing timeline, and an equally confusing naming scheme, Halloween. The 2018 reboot/sequel/remake, not the 2007 Rob Zombie remake, or the 1978 original. This week Nigel and Josh address everything from John Carpenters original intent with … Continue reading Episode 15 – Halloween (2018)

Episode 14 – Bad Times at the El Royale (Oops, not horror?)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-vbv52-9cfb80 Oops, this one turned out to be less of a horror movie than anticipated. It's a thriller, which is kinda like horror, right? Regardless, Josh and Nigel have a great back and forth over Bad Times at the El Royale. Is it good, or is it bad? The world may never know. Tune in … Continue reading Episode 14 – Bad Times at the El Royale (Oops, not horror?)

Episode 13 – The Witch (What draws us to horror?)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-cafkf-9c50ae Episode 13. Unlucky 13. Right in the middle of October, a month of horror films. What did we decide to talk about this week? Robert Eggers The Witch, a Puritan nightmare. How unlucky of us. Starring Anya-Taylor Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, and Harvey Scrimshaw, The Witch tells the story of a family ripped apart when … Continue reading Episode 13 – The Witch (What draws us to horror?)

Episode 12 – Hereditary (A24’s new horror)

Hereditary is one of those films we've had several people request, and we've been eager to discuss. In this episode, we explore the new … Continue reading Episode 12 – Hereditary (A24’s new horror)

Episode 11 – Alien (In Space no one can hear you scream)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-z9ztr-9b20da Well, October is here and that means Halloween! Is there a better transition from Predator into October than the 1979 sci-fi horror film Alien? Probably not. This week we address some of the hallmarks of a horror film like the final girl, the scream queen, and the "in space!" trope. We also spend a … Continue reading Episode 11 – Alien (In Space no one can hear you scream)
