We go back to our roots with this overlooked gem of classic British folk horror, Robin Redbreast. Contains some progressive perspectives current society seems to have retreated from and enduring the life lesson that you should never sleep with boring men, however pretty they are.
We get experimental with one of our favorites from the past year, Enys Men, and discuss the wide range of folk horror, the deadening repetition of women’s lives, and being unstuck in time and space. You know, a nice, normal start to 2024.
Happy New Year! With 2023 in the books, we take a look back at our favorite films from the past year, new and old, and what we’re looking forward to in 2024.
Now that we’ve discussed the original Black Christmas, there’s nothing else to do this year but take a look at the two remakes: one from 2006 and one from 2019. They both have a hard time living up to the first, they each have a charming weirdness worth watching.
Merry Christmas! Don’t answer your phone! Or trust your weirdly controlling boyfriend! But do drink and insult people à la Margo Kidder as Barb. Let’s talk about the original Black Christmas.
We extend our discussion about silent horror films with one of the most interesting cinematic takes on the topic: 2000’s Shadow of the Vampire. Come for Willem Dafoe as the somewhat comical undead, stay for the subtext about what horrific sacrifices humans should make for the sake of art.
This month we’re getting classy and discussing a topic we haven’t ventured into yet: silent horror film. We talk about the ones we love and the ones on our watchlists, and dig into the details of what silent horror film has to offer with The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.
The October theme is suburban horror, so what could we cover next but Tom Hanks’s journey through the wilds of having very weird and somewhat suspicious neighbors: 1989’s The ‘Burbs. Let us appreciate Joe Dante, Carrie Fisher and Dick Miller.
It’s October and so we’re exploring the spookiest place of all … the suburbs. This month we cover surburban horror, starting off with the classic of the genre: Poltergeist.
For our second entry in our haunted house theme, it’s time to get weird. We discuss one of the most gloriously bizarre horror movies there is: 1977’s House (otherwise known as Hausu). Ghosts, cats, and watermelons, oh my.
