    Episode 7 - Ready or Not (2019)

    In this week's episode, Barb and JC sit down to watch another fun entry in the "eat the rich genre" with the semi-indie gem from 2019, Ready or Not. Is this movie a fun twist on the final girl trope or is it just more escape room flavored schlock?

    Episode 5 - Van Helsing (2004)

    Episode 5 - Van Helsing (2004)

    JC and Barb take a trip back to their teenage years with 2004's Van Helsing! Released smack dab in the middle of big-budget Mummy-mania, Universal threw the rest of their creepy properties into one massive monster mash... and judging by the discussion in this episode, with mixed results.


    Van Helsing is a fairly soft PG-13, so nothing to really watch out for there outside of some green blood and corsets, so watch away if you want to follow along.

    Episode 4 - Mom and Dad (2017)

    Episode 4 - Mom and Dad (2017)

    JC and Barb talk about the first Nicolas Cage movie for the show, the bizarre indie horror comedy, Mom and Dad (2017). What exactly makes Nic Cage a mad daddy? How would we have rewritten a horror scene in maternity ward? Can the Saw-All really saw all? We discuss all this and more!


    Mom & Dad is a pretty violent and intense R-rated thriller, depicting plenty of brutal family violence.

    Episode 3 - Hellraiser (1987) ...with Greg!

    Episode 3 - Hellraiser (1987) ...with Greg!

    JC and Barb are in the mood for rusty hooks with the classic Hallmark movie reject, Hellraiser! Along for the ride is our good friend, Greg, a comedy writer and horror movie buff. We discuss our favorite parts and themes of the movie as well as our favorite Cenobites.


     


    Hellraiser is a particularly violent watch with body horror, some gore, and themes of BDSM. Our discussion is tame, but this film ain't for the squeamish!

    Episode 2 - One Cut of the Dead (2017)

    Episode 2 - One Cut of the Dead (2017)

    In this week's episode, we take a look at the J-horror comedy, One Cut of the Dead. Turns out this one makes for a fun entry level spook-em-up. Tune in as we discuss how!


     


    This episode features JC and Barb at the helm. One Cut of the Dead features some very light violence and gross out humor, nothing too bad, really.
