A monthly horror movie podcast, hosted by Cliff Barnes, with comedians Phil Jerrod, Emily McQuade, Bryony No and Luke Poulton. Older episodes feature former devils CJ Lines, Hollie Horror, Richard Trondsen and Sarah Dobbs.
Each month we look at a different theme or subgenre, with a focus on two particular movies, and every show concludes with the challenging audio clips quiz, Scary Noises.
46: Halloween Horrors
46 episodes in, and we're finally marking Halloween with an episode about movies set at this seasonal time of year. Spooky shorts, demonic possession, pumpkin-headed killers and haunted house attractions gone wrong, they're all here, plus our features are the kiddie horror Goosebumps 2 and the infamous BBC special Ghostwatch.
We've also look at new releases including Saint Maud, Possessor, The Haunting of Bly Manor and The Wolf of Snow Hollow, and of course there are more Scary Noises for you to identify!
On this month's show, we compare Eli Roth to various forms of processed chicken, discuss the use of "hospital" as an adjective, and we're joined by a special guest feline with a few things to say about Rob Zombie.
Our features are Roth's debut, Cabin Fever, and Zombie's newest, 3 From Hell, our Highs & Lows of the month include new releases Spiral, #Alive and Get Duked!, and you can play along with another round of Scary Noises.

44: Slasher Remakes
In our exploration of modern updates of classic (and not so classic) slasher flicks, we investigate Norman Bates's special wall, low-rent Hollywood actors, the "sexy" couple from the start of the Anthropophagous Beast remake, and balls.
Maniac and Child's Play are our headlining features, we review new releases Host, Black Water: Abyss and She Dies Tomorrow, and there's another round of our audio clips quiz, Scary Noises!
43: Arthouse Horror
This month we reveal the results of our listeners' poll to find the best Arthouse Horror movies ever made, plus we throw in a few additional picks of our own. Plus reviews of new releases including Yummy, Death of a Vlogger and 7500, another round of Scary Noises, and citrus-based laughs.
42: Lesbian Vampires
This month the Devils go out for a nice stake, with a side order of lesbian vampires, including a balanced appraisal of the James Corden vehicle Lesbian Vampire Killers, the 1970s classics Daughters of Darkness, Fascination and The Blood Spattered Bride, and modern takes including Nadja, The Moth Diaries and the brand new (it only premiered two days ago!!!) After Dark aka Vampire Virus.
Our Highs & Lows include another new movie seen at the weekend's Sohome Horror Festival - drag scene slasher Killer Unicorn - and of course there's another round of Scary Noises.
For next month's episode we'd like to know your Top 5 arthouse horror movies, so please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us @DevilXFive.
41: True-ish Crime
This month Cliff, Phil, Emily, Luke & Bryony take in a whopping 20 horror movies based - with varying levels of historical accuracy - on true crimes, and do their best to dissect and analyse them, but don't be surprised if sometimes they go off on some unlikely tangents...!
Our features are Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and Deranged, we've got our horror Highs & Lows of the month (which for some reason include Kindergarten Cop) and there's another round of Scary Noises to play along with at home.
Customer ReviewsSee All
Been working my way through each episode and it’s been a blast. Informative, fun, well balanced opinions, and not afraid to tip over a sacred cow as far as horror films go, this podcast is absolutely worth your time. Cheers!
I came for the horror
I stayed for the post-porn facts.
A well rounded group
This is an informal chat about horror films with five enthusiasts who have different tastes and good self-humor. The categories - sub genres like PCs Gone Mad and Chillenials - are funny but apt. There is implied analysis without too much waxing on, and it moves briskly, without the grating donkey-bray laughter of so many horror podcasts.
Best of all, these critics really know their stuff, and I'm always impressed with the esoteric and eclectic range of films.
