Every Thursday, Imported Horror brings you the best of fiendish ghouls, bloodthirsty zombies and creepy ghosts from beyond the shining seas. We explore international horror movies and television shows from around the globe that are readily available on American streaming services. All episodes are spoiler-free.
Jiggly Puff's Stop Motion Nightmare: Wolf House (Chile & Germany, 2018)
Can paper mache feel pain, when it's twisted and contorted? What if it's escaping a cult? This week, the gang gets captivated and horrified by the creepiest stop motion film of all time. Also, what horror classic would you rather see animated and Melissa accidentally called an elaborate sex dungeon.
Motion Picture Terror Scale: 3 (Marcus) / 4 (Melissa) / 3 (Grady). Quality: 5. Enjoyment: 3 / 4 / 5
Things in the Holes in the Walls: His House (United Kingdom, 2020)
Imagine escaping the horrors of a civil war only to discover cold bureaucrats who confine you in a haunted house with an ancient night witch. Or did the "apeth" follow you from South Sudan? This week, the gang spends the night in his surprisingly scary house. Also, would you rather live in a world with no horror movies or only G-rated horror movies?
Stayin' Alive, Stayin' Alive: #Alive (South Korea, 2020)
You're trapped in your apartment, self-isolating, watching horrifying tragedies unfold on the news. Sound familiar? Well, good news - this time it's a zombie apocalypse! The gang logs in to discuss #Alive, a surprisingly scary and remarkably poignant take on isolation, suicide and survival. Also, which vintage horror villains would you rather see take over the world?
Motion Picture Terror Scale: 3 Quality: 4 Enjoyment: 4
Everything that can scare you, will: Paranormal (Egypt, 2020)
Medical science can't explain everything in Dr. Refaat Ismail's life. It can't explain his nightmares, his mazes, his constant upturned coffee cups or why the creatures of the night seem to haunt him. This week, the gang heads to Egypt for a Netflix adaptation of popular horror pocket books that clearly deserve an English translation. Also, they explore the horror potential for Danish animation star John Dillermand in an anatomically incorrect Would You Rather.
Week Off for 1/6/21 Coup Attempt
Imported Horror is taking a week off following the January 6 attempted coup attempt in Washington, DC. We stand united with democracy and decency. We are opposed to violence, riots, insurrection and illiberalism. Instead of listening to us this week, we recommend the Majority 54 podcast. Roll up your sleeves and find a way to help restore democracy and the marketplace of ideas.
We'll be back next week with episodes on #Alive and Paranormal.
NOT Heavy Metal Apocalypse: Deathgasm (New Zealand & USA, 2015)
Playing The Beatles or Pink Floyd records backwards won't summon Lucifer, but playing the heavy metal Black Hymn forwards will unleash the hounds of hell. This week, the gang gives 2020 the finger and a righteous send-off with the most shameless and fun metal horror flick ever made. Also, what movies that you've seen this year would you rather have on a deserted island?
Motion Picture Terror Scale: 1. Quality: 5. Enjoyment: 5.
