    Episode 31: Fright Night (1985) - Vincent Half Price

    Peter and Phil talk through the classic 1980s (and it is VERY 1980s) vampire movie Fright Night. One of us has a deep connection to the movie from childhood and the other discovered it as an adult. We discuss the characters, actors, behind the scenes stories, the special effects, that iconic poster and we get quite hot under the collar talking about how sexy Chris Sarandon is. Let us know what you think of the film!  Join us on Twitter @ManiacsHorror

    Episode 30: The Witch (2015) - I Ain't Afraid of no Goat

    Peter and Phil discuss the debut movie by Robert Eggers - The Witch (or The VVitch depending on how pedantic you're being). We discuss the themes, the characters, the actors, the special effects, the historical setting, and Peter shows his utter ignorance about how the human body works while discussing Ralph Ineson's six-pack. Enjoy!

    Episode 28: Insidious (2010) - Tiptoe Through The Astral Plane

    Episode 28: Insidious (2010) - Tiptoe Through The Astral Plane

    PLEASE NOTE - For some reason Phil's half of the conversation was subject to some weird interference (spooky, right?). We don't know why or how and we managed to mostly clean it up but every now and then it gets a little buzzy. Sorry about that - we blame the demons. 
    Anyway, your friendly neighbourhood Maniacs talk through the modern classic Insidious from 2010, written by Leigh Whannell and directed by James Wan. What‘s up with Dalton? Why is that song so creepy? Who used all the lipstick? Explore Further with us here …

    Episode 27: Poltergeist (1982) - Misty Fingers From Beyond the Grave

    Episode 27: Poltergeist (1982) - Misty Fingers From Beyond the Grave

    The Maniacs talk through the classic movie Poltergeist from 1982, produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by Tobe Hooper. We discuss the story, special effects, the real life tragedies resulting in the film being labelled "cursed", and the controversy surrounding who did in fact direct the majority of the movie. We also have a hard time separating our childhood feelings about it with our adult thoughts, there's another brief cameo from Phil's cat and Peter nearly gets attacked by a tree from his garden. Enjoy!
