Episode 05.03: Robin Redbreast

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.

Episode 05.02: Enys Men

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.

Episode 04.22: Black Christmases

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.

Episode 04.20: Shadow of the Vampire

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.

Episode 04.18: The ‘Burbs

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.

Episode 04.16: House

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.
