Tonight, Bryan and I say goodbye. Last year we set out on a journey to see how well some of the highest (and lowest) regarded horror movies stood up to the viewing of a newbie to horror. There were some surprises along the way for sure. And while there are plenty more movies to watch, at this point we’re passing the torch to you, the listener to decide what’s good and what’s bad. We leave you with one last classic, The Bride of Frankenstein.
This week Bryan wanted something fun, so we decided to take some liberties with the term “classic” and watch Night of the Creeps.
We’re talking about two films that don’t involve Denzel Washington. First up some soldiers get brainwashed in THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE. Then a girl goes missing and the only one that can save her is . . . Scott Glen in MAN ON FIRE.
We’re taking a look at two films based on S.E. Hinton books that were adapted to the big screen by Francis Ford Coppola. First up we try to stay golden in THE OUTSIDERS. Then things get desaturated in RUMBLE FISH.
We’re checking out two Spierig Brothers films. We take a look at their early outing with THE UNDEAD. Then we jump ahead slightly as we talk about their unusual vampire film DAYBREAKERS.
This week we’re looking at the kids of famous filmmakers. First up is the Brandon Cronenberg film about people’s obsessions with celebrity in ANTIVIRAL. Then Jennifer Lynch takes us in the home of a twisted serial killer that is unsurprisingly played by Vincent D’ Onofrio in CHAINED.
To celebrate Jamie Lee Curtis winning an Oscar, we’re reviewing two of her earlier films. It’s time for the big night as we get dressed up for PROM NIGHT. Then it’s our first day on the job when we face off against a robber in BLUE STEEL. Congrats Jamie Lee!
It’s FINALLY the end of Fanuary. Noah decided we should do a couple of found-footage movies. First up is a mysterious mass killing in SAVAGELAND. Then people keep disappearing and reappearing in HOWARD’S MILL.
This week we finally get around to watching Angela Bettis in one of the greatest under the radar horror movies of all time, May.
This week we travel back to 1976 to learn why children are literally the worst.
It’s meta week here during Fanuary. First up we go where no man has gone before in GALAXY QUEST. Then we pack plenty of bean curd as we head off to fight monsters in a mine in MY NAME IS BRUCE.
It’s week 2 of Fanuary! This time we’re looking at two high-octane action films. Things go all Point-Of-View with HARDCORE HENRY. Then we marvel at the transformation of Bob Odenkirk and get excited by Christopher Lloyd in NOBODY.
It’s Fanuary on the podcast as we take some listener suggestions. First up is the Netflix Spanish film THE PLATFORM. Get locked in prison? Try eating a limited amount of food and see what happens. Then instead of prison, we go to an experimental island where they try out different drugs to varying results. Some of them are sinister.
Gary Busey sweeps in this week to help save us. First up he plays a Vietnam Vet who returns home to find his town overrun with criminals. The only man he can trust is his best friend Yaphet Kotto in EYE OF THE TIGER. Then he plays a Vietnam Vet who returns home to find his town overrun with criminals. The only man he can trust is his best friend Yaphet Kotto and a biker gang in CHROME SOLDIERS.
This week we finally get around to letting Bryan watch House of 1000 Corpses. It’s been a long time since Scott has seen this one as well, so come see if it holds up for him too.
Noah shows up late so Doug and Bryan discuss the recent issues with WWE. We finally do get around to chatting about the movies. First, we enter a mental hospital with minimal security in ALONE IN THE DARK. Then we face off against fascists while hunkering down in an apartment building in SIEGE.
This week we dive into the Japanese horror phenomenon with the 2004 American remake of The Grudge.
We’re looking at two films about phone lines. First up, someone is killing phone sex operators in OUT OF THE DARK. Then Freddy directs a movie about a kid calling a hotline to learn his horoscope, for evil, in 976 EVIL.
This week Scott’s joined by special guest, Doug. We discuss Lucio Fulci’s Zombie and discuss why all movies need to have a scene of a shark fighting a zombie.
It’s time to ring in the new year with two themed horror films. First up we visit an abandoned resort and teleport back to the 50s in BLOODY NEW YEAR. Then we stumble upon a random building and . . . well . . . we don’t know what happens really in GHOSTKEEPER. Happy New Year to everyone!
