Your horror loving hosts, Corie and Sarah, make an attempt to watch and discuss every ‘80s slasher.
Children of the Corn
Stephen King makes his first appearance on our show with Children of the Corn from 1984. A questionable slasher? We have questions, anyways. Such as: “why is this on the list?” And, “why are there nine sequels and a remake?” Check it out! He Who Walks Behind the Rows commands it!

We’re checking in at The Bates Motel with MJ Smith from Reel Perspective and Let’s Jaws for a Minute! We figure out how this surprisingly good 1983 sequel was made 23 years after the original, talk about Norman Bates as horror’s most sympathetic slasher, and get way too excited to have a chance to discuss The Shower Scene. No mints on the pillow with this one, but we do have sandwiches and milk!
Get in loser, WE’RE GOING CHOPPING! Corie and Sarah are joined by special guest Jennifer Williams-Cordova (@jenwillco) for CHOPPING MALL from 1986. We talk rain sticks, mall falls, and play a couple rounds of “F, Marry, Killbot.” Our mom can drop us off, if your mom can pick us up! It’s gonna be totally fun to the max!
Even when the movie is dark, we try to keep it light! We’re joined by Travis Ayers (@travis_ayers), producer of CYST (2020) and INFRARED (2022), for an in depth discussion on filmmaking, video rentals, and the pros and cons of the little seen, and hard to see, 1982 slasher HUMONGOUS.
(CW: sexual assault)
Sarah and Corie take a break from rubbing sunscreen on each other’s backs for this 1980 slasher(?) Blood Beach has everything! Singing Hoagies, decapitations, John Saxon, two kinds of loose weenies! Come on in, the water’s fine! BONUS: a lot more Paula Abdul than anticipated
Dial Code Santa Claus/Deadly Games
It’s Christmas in July, and this episode is our gift to you! Corie, Sarah, and special guest Ashley discuss French Christmas, hedging your bets on believing in Santa, and whether or not Home Alone owes a debt to this 1989 holiday slasher. Miss this episode and you’ll end up on the naughty list!
