    CW: Rape, Suicide, Addiction

    It’s New Year's Week on Pod Sematary! Chris & Kelsey shoot the devil with a grenade launcher and also make some very bad decisions.

    The Classic Film: End of Days (1999)
    "At the end of the century, Satan visits New York in search of a bride. It's up to an ex-cop who now runs an elite security outfit to stop him” (IMDb.com). Arnold Schwarzenegger stars (for some reason) in one of many turn-of-the-millennium religious thrillers, and you know what that means... shooting Satan with a ton of bullets!

    The Modern Film: Midnighters (2017)
    "Midnight, New Year's Eve: when all the hopes of new beginnings come to life - except for Lindsey and Jeff Pittman, whose strained marriage faces the ultimate test after they cover up a terrible crime and find themselves entangled in a Hitchcockian web of deceit and madness” (IMDb.com). Wow, that plot summary is doing a lot of heavy lifting. Midnighters is dim, contrived, and not very inspired. It's beyond us why this film is as highly rated as it is.

    "Adventures in Babysitting" produced by Touchstone Pictures & Silver Screen Partners III
    "Chicago" (2002) produced by Miramax, et al.
    "End of Days" produced by Beacon Pictures & Lucifilms

    CW: Sexual Assault, Rape, Suicide, Abortion, Gaslighting

    It’s our second week of Christmas horror on Pod Sematary! Chris & Kelsey smash the dark-magic patriarchy but spend most of their time talking about last Christmas.

    The Classic Film: Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 (1987)
    "The now-adult Ricky talks to a psychiatrist about how he became a murderer after his brother, Billy, died, which leads back to Mother Superior” (IMDb.com). The purposeful camp in this Christmas horror flick works sometimes, but they should have waited until they actually had a whole movie to film.

    The Modern Film: Black Christmas (2019)
    "Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. One by one, sorority girls on campus are being killed by an unknown stalker. But the killer is about to discover that this generation's young women aren't willing to become hapless victims as they mount a fight to the finish” (IMDb.com). The road to bad cinema is paved with good intentions and probably the best thing we can say about this second Black Christmas remake is that it had good intentions.

    "Black Christmas" (2019) produced by Blumhouse Productions, et al.
    "Carrie" (1976) produced by Red Bank Films

    CW: Suicide, Child Molestation, Bullying

    It’s Christmas Anthology Week on Pod Sematary! Chris & Kelsey spend their Christmas in a series of spooky vignettes.

    The Classic Film: Tales from the Crypt (1972)
    "Five strangers get lost in a crypt and, after meeting the mysterious Crypt Keeper, receive visions of how they will die” (IMDb.com). A charming collection of EC Comics-style stories (including one about an escaped, psychopathic Santa), Tales from the Crypt is pretty much exactly what you'd expect.

    The Modern Film: All the Creatures Were Stirring (2018)
    "When an awkward date on Christmas Eve leads a couple into a strange theater, they're treated to a bizarre and frightening collection of Christmas stories, featuring a wide ensemble of characters doing their best to avoid the horrors of the holidays” (IMDb.com). Sometimes we watch a movie that's worse for how much promise it shows in an otherwise bad package. This is one of those times.

    "A Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book One" written by George R. R. Martin and read by Roy Dotrice

    CW: Incest, Rape, Mental Illness

    It’s a Double Feature on Pod Sematary! Chris & Kelsey will end up either dead or insane! Thanks for the recommendation, Alex!

    The Classic Film: The Crazies (1973)
    "A biological weapon gone awry is only the start of problems in the little town of Evan's City, Pennsylvania. Bouts of insanity in the populace are leading to murder and rioting until the US Army turns up - and things really start going to hell” (IMDb.com). Feeling like a quintessential low-budget Romero flick, The Crazies is a raw and affecting story of survival.

    The Modern Film: The Crazies (2010)
    "As a toxin begins to turn the residents of Ogden Marsh, Iowa, into violent psychopaths, sheriff David Dutton tries to make sense of the situation while he, his wife, and two other unaffected townspeople band together in a fight for survival” (IMDb.com). It may be rare, but sometimes a horror remake is actually good. This is the case with The Crazies' 2010 remake, which does something completely different from the original and does it pretty well.
