    Last Night in Soho (United Kingdom & China, 2021)

    Last Night in Soho (United Kingdom & China, 2021)

    We like to remember the swinging sixties fondly - the music and the fashion and the dancing. The exploitation, murder and neon-soaked blood splatter? Ehh, maybe not so much. This week, the crew geeks out about the Texas switches in Edgar Wright's glamourous neo-giallo. Also, Taiwan's biggest horror movie is headed to Netflix and Laotian ghosts are dropping soon on Shudder.
    Motion Picture Terror Scale: 3. Quality: 5. Enjoyment: 5.

    Hatching (Finland & Sweden, 2022)

    Hatching (Finland & Sweden, 2022)

    Quoth the raven: Stop obsessing about appearances. This week, the crew dives into a gooey bird horror with spectacular practical effects and a compelling allegory. Also, we get confused by The Children (2008), which is underwhelming but highly rated, and get excited about another vicious flying monster coming soon to Netflix.
    Motion Picture Terror Scale: 3.67. Quality: 5. Enjoyment: 4.

    The Guardian (Vietnam, 2021)

    The Guardian (Vietnam, 2021)

    Some dolls have spirits. Others have secrets. This week, the crew dives into a twisty Vietnamese take on Thai folklore. Also, we break down the international announcements from Netflix's "Geeked Week" and get excited about watching "Prey" in the Comanche language. 
    Motion Picture Terror Scale: 1.67. Quality: 3. Enjoyment: 2.67

    Censor (United Kingdom, 2021)

    Censor (United Kingdom, 2021)

    You might think you've got a great memory. How could you know for sure? This week, the crew goes on a neo-giallo throwback to the "video nasty" era for a trippy look at self-censorship and tech scapegoats. Also, why is "Dashcam" so much more polarizing than "Crimes of the Future?"
    Motion Picture Terror Scale: 2.67 Quality: 4.33. Enjoyment: 4.33

    Choose or Die (United Kingdom, 2022)

    Choose or Die (United Kingdom, 2022)

    Retro video games are a pixelated gold mine for horror ... and for disappointing movies that don't understand them. This week, the crew unpacks a Nightmare On Elm Street-esque dream horror movie masquerading as a video game tribute. Also - two classic genres reemerge with gusto in new releases this week and there's a confession about walking out of a David Cronenberg picture. Motion Picture Terror Scale: 2. Quality: 2. Enjoyment: 2.67
