    Scream Addicts - Best of the Decade with Scott “Foywonder” Foy and Matt Serafini!

    Scream Addicts continues its annual tradition with Scott Foy and Matt Serafini joining Jinx to compare their Best of lists!  However, rather than simply covering the past year, this episode finds the trio discussing their picks for the Top Ten Films of the Decade!



    Shin Godzilla and Stake Land, Troll Hunter and Twixt, Mandy and Maniac - these and more are discussed in our year-end finale!  As the guys wind through their own personal Top Ten of the Decade lists, many other subjects are tackled along the way - including Us, dodgy “Scariest Movie Ever” marketing, and…the Snyder Cut?!



    …we also manage to chat about Doctor Sleep, “guilty pleasures” and…sigh…The Stone Man.  Ugh.



    It’s a blast of a chat with two fantastic guests, and it’s one we hope you enjoy!

    With its fascinating lead character and blend of horror and sci-fi, Quatermass kicks off a conversation which focuses on the movie’s titular character (and his previous adventures), the film’s themes of superstition versus science, and the uncomfortable parallels to Nazi Germany that the film conjures.  Along the way, the two chat about the film’s true hero, John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness, and…marching Martian cricket Nazis?!

    CURSED with Ghastly Grinning’s Ryan Larson

    This week on Scream Addicts, Jinx welcomes Ryan Larson to the show!



    The founder and editor-in-chief of Ghastly Grinning (visit here:  https://www.ghastlygrinning.com/), Mr. Larson has chosen Wes Craven’s much-maligned werewolf horror/comedy CURSED for discussion this week.



    With its frequently humorous script and cast of impressive young actors, CURSED kicks off a conversation which touches on both the film’s flaws and virtues, its unfortunate production history, and why people should really give the film a second chance.  Along the way, Mr. Larson and Jinx discuss the film’s questionable treatment of one character’s sexuality, the possibility of one day getting Wes Craven’s original cut of the film, and…that infamous werewolf bird-flipping moment.



    It’s a wonderful chat with a fantastic guest, and it’s one we hope you enjoy.
