Josh Copeland returns to fill in for Quincy this week as he and Ryan dig into the brand-new HELLRAISER: JUDGMENT and also, by God, James Cameron's ALIENS. Also discussed are Instagram cenobites, the perfection of Sigourney Weaver, and interoffice Hell politics.
Holy shit, y'all, it's our 50th episode! We do some real heavy-hitters on this episode, digging into DRACULA, PSYCHO, and IT (2017). We talk about Anthony Perkins lookin' like a snack, compare Pennywises between the 2017 adaptation and the 1990 miniseries, and yell about the inexplicable armadillos in Dracula.
On this episode, we're joined by comedian and podcaster Jessimae Peluso as we dig into three episodes of Black Mirror ("Shut Up and Dance," "White Bear," and "Playtest") and also A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3: DREAM WARRIORS. We also talk about sobbing into chicken tenders, monster breasts, and competitive handshakes.
On this episode, we dig into HAUNTERS: THE ART OF THE SCARE, WALKING OUT, BLOODLANDS, and two listener requests: THE VVITCH and SANTA'S SLAY! We also ruminate on desensitization, the ethical boundaries of mom's spaghetti, and demon wagers involving Canadian sports.
On this week's episode, we rank DEATH BED: THE BED THAT EATS, THE REAL CHAINSAW MASSACRE, and THE UNEXPLAINED: WITCHES, WEREWOLVES, AND VAMPIRES. We also dig into a bunch of listener requests (including CARRIE and THE EXORCIST) and talk about nightmares involving Gary Busey, old-timey catfishing, and attempting to explain MTV's Next to children.
On this week's episode, we talk about THE LURE, THE MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF A MINOR, and possibly one of the most bananas Hong Kong horror movies ever made, SEEDING OF A GHOST. Also discussed are the dangers of playing mahjong, dead Mumfords, and Black Plague trivia.
Filling in for Quincy this week is Ryan's partner Christina, who has a lot of feelings about 2016 French-Belgian horror film RAW, as well as the first two seasons of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD. Also discussed are the cowardice of Michael Douglas, dads covered in scarves, and being fed by David Lynch like a baby bird.

It's the Christmas episode! We talk about TRAGEDY GIRLS, but then we also get festive with BETTER WATCH OUT, BLACK CHRISTMAS (2006) and GOOD TIDINGS. We talk about why we hate Hostage Horror as a genre, kids and weird food choices, and how the BLACK CHRISTMAS remake is basically the Aristocrats joke.
Filling in for Quincy this week is Alexandra Rowland (author of the upcoming A CONSPIRACY OF TRUTHS) as she and Ryan talk about GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH and "Blink" from Doctor Who. Or, like, TRY to discuss GREMLINS 2 through conventional means, but you can probably only adequately talk about this movie through the use of finger puppets, a morning radio show soundboard, and several pornographic bumper stickers.
