    Possession (1981) feat. Jenn Adams

    Put down that carving knife and pull out that tentacle monster because we're heading all the way to divided Berlin to discuss Andrzej Żuławski's loud and proud 1981 masterpiece Possession! Joining us for the conversation is Losers' Club and Psychoanalysis Podcast co-host Jenn Adams!
    Join us as we sing all the praises for Isabelle Adjani's mesmerizing performance (if you've seen the subway scene, you know why) before trying to pick apart every single bit of emotion that this film exudes. And it's...a lot.
    Plus: hot Sam Neill, deranged rocking, gay detectives, dirty-ass feathers, a queer reading of Heinrich and so, so so many slaps. Are we dealing with Sister Faith or Sister Chance? You tell us!

    Videodrome (1983)

    Ready for invagination? For the first week of 'Weird Sex Month,' we're returning to Canada to discuss David Cronenberg's Videodrome (1983), just in time for its 40th anniversary.
    Expect body horror courtesy of FX master Rick Baker, communications theory courtesy of Marshall McLuhan, and oversharing about anatomy courtesy of Trace Thurman.
    Plus: wanting more Debbie Harry, feminist and trans readings of Max's situation, talk of the alternate ending, Canadian history lessons, and just how many Americans have guns?

    Micro Queers: L.A. AIDS Jabber (1994)

    Micro Queers: L.A. AIDS Jabber (1994)

    We're dropping a special bonus review of Visual Vengeance's new Blu of 1994 thriller L.A. AIDS Jabber.
    Up for discussion: is this exploitation film sleazy enough and is it good or bad that queer people don't seem to exist?
    Plus: low budget filmmaking, changing characters and motivations, Joe's husband's odd personal connection, and how an HIV diagnosis is no longer a death sentence.

    Micro Queers: Exploited (2022)

    Micro Queers: Exploited (2022)

    Cover your webcams and watch out for tasers because we're talking Jon Abrahams' Exploited (2022). C/W: sexual assault.
    This indie film features male nudity in two minutes, boys in singlets and Leah FUCKING Pipes running around in lingerie. It's also got about 12 storylines, uneven acting and far too many twists in the surprisingly dark last act.
    Basically: she's a messy bitch that tries to tackle too much, but Exploited is so explicitly queer, pro-sex and unabashedly wild that we had to cover it. It won't be for everyone, but if you're willing to take the ride, we hope you enjoy the batshit insanity.

    House of Wax (2005)

    House of Wax (2005)

    We are not here to see Paris die but we are here to discuss Jaume Collet-Serra's mean and stylish 2005 remake House of Wax (and yes, we know it has more in common with Tourist Trap)! Wanna see what happens when a really dumb slasher script gets a $40 million budget thrown at it? This is it!
    Join us as we discuss the film's controversial "See Paris Die!" marketing campaign (and the emotional toil it may have taken on Ms. Hilton) before going all in on this 2005 time capsule that fell in that awkward period for horror between post-Scream slashers and torture porn.
    Plus: twincest, Penny Can, sexy super glue blowing, a fiery finale and an unexpected(?) queer reading of Chad Michael Murray's Nick.
    Oh, and here's the link to the 5-part documentary series Movie Life: House of Wax that aired on MTV the month before the film was released. It's...something.

some kind of wonderful ,

Frightfully fun & informative

This is my comfort podcast, in part because horror movies are a comfort genre for me and in part because the hosts are so pleasant and are clear lovers of and knowledgeable about the genre too. I really love when they cover a film I haven’t seen yet— like Tremors or The Lighthouse— and persuade me to give that movie a chance. It’s also great when Trace and Joe reaffirm my taste in kickass movies like The Descent or The Ruins 😃

Great Pod

I’m a newcomer here but am absolutely loving this pod, and digging through past eps. I love that they can tackle serious issues with poise but also make me laugh like crazy. Recommended!

Just need their hot injection
