On this episode, we dig into THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN, HAPPY HUNTING, LOST ENCOUNTER, THE TRANSFIGURATION, DON'T GO NEAR THE PARK, and BEYOND THE GATES. Should you or shouldn't you go near the park? There's this movie that'll tell you.
On this episode, we're joined by writer and poet Bryanna Licciardi as we dive into POLTERGEIST, THE ZODIAC KILLER, and THE JEFFREY DAHMER FILES. Also discussed are The Poltergeist Curse, whether or not we would wear a Zodiac Killer branded hoodie like the dude in the film, and the influence of Napoleon Dynamite on true crime documentaries.
On this episode, we talk with Brittany Fernandez of KICK OUT AT TWO about IT STAINS THE SANDS RED, MADHOUSE, and THE DEVIL'S CANDY. We also talk about Southern Underground Pro, tampon-related horror tropes, and Quincy's travails with home ownership and plumbing. Also The Bye-Bye Man. He is inescapable and burns at the center of all things.
We're joined by writer, academic, and general badass Lauren Milici as we talk about Final Girls -- specifically, Sally from TEXAS CHAINSAW and Nancy from A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. Also discussed are Nicolas Cage, weird dates with dudes who like TETSUO THE IRON MAN, and my God, a new Number One Movie on our list.
We're joined by horror author Christoph Paul as we dig into HELLRAISER and the Lovecraft-inspired short WHEN SUSURRUS STIRS. Mostly Christoph and Ryan make Quincy cry in anguish as they slide HELLRAISER farther and farther up the list until nothing makes sense anymore.
We talk to horror author Max Booth III about KUSO, YOUR DATE IS HERE, THE NIGHT OF SOMETHING STRANGE, and THE NIGHT WATCHMEN. Also featured: Quincy's wife Emily sets the record straight on STIs and toilets.
Writer, podcaster, and Dracula enthusiast Chris Sims joined us to talk about ARMY OF DARKNESS, TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA, and DRACULA A.D. 1972. Also discussed are Thriller, Keanu Reeves' valiant attempts at an English accent, and shady copies of BATMAN: DEAD END.
On this episode, Quincy talks with Betty Rocksteady (author of LIKE JAGGED TEETH and ARACHNOPHILE) about ZYGOTE, LOWLIFE, TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT and HOUNDS OF LOVE. Also discussed is the fact that Quincy's mom clipped a picture of the Cryptkeeper out of the back of his comic books as a kid because it scared him. I had to write about that detail in this blurb because holy shit.
Our pal Leza Cantoral (author of CARTOONS IN THE SUICIDE FOREST and the upcoming THE ICE CREAM GIRL GOSPELS) comes back to talk about one of horror's most disgusting-yet-compelling subgenres -- giallo! We dig into THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, INFERNO, and THE EVIL EYE. Also discussed are Christmas horror movies, Shinsuke Nakamura, and that time Ryan and Quincy wussed out while watching Takashi Miike's IMPRINT in college.
We're joined by Katie Schenkel (author of werewolf comic MOONLIGHTERS) as we talk about one of the best werewolf movies probably ever, GINGER SNAPS. Also discussed are pubescent travails, rituals involving cheesecake, and keeping the children away from Rob Liefeld.
