    Zombiepalooza: Kingdom (South Korea, 2019-), Go Goa Gone (India, 2013) and Cargo (Australia, 2017)

    None of the zombie movies we saw prepared us for toilet paper shortages. That hasn't stopped a horde of zombie references in the middle of a pandemic, though. Marcus and Melissa explore three new and innovative takes on the zombie genre - a 15th century soap opera and zombie blend from South Korea, a dude bro zomcom from India and a heart-wrenching zombie drama from Australia. They also pay respects to the late great Kenny Rogers with a poker-themed Would You Rather.

    Less Thinky, More Drinky: Grabbers (Ireland & The United Kingdom, 2012)

    Tentacled alien sea monsters swarm across the Irish coast with a thirst for human blood. There's just one problem - they're allergic to alcohol, and to anyone drunk enough to fight them. Marcus and Melissa discover that scotch mixes well with this warm 80s-style creature feature. Also, what horror characters would you rather have on a monster slaying dream team?

    Motion Picture Terror Scale: 1. Quality: 4. Personal Enjoyment: 5.

    Terrified in Tehran: Under the Shadow (United Kingdom, Jordan, Qatar & Iran, 2016)

    Terrified in Tehran: Under the Shadow (United Kingdom, Jordan, Qatar & Iran, 2016)

    American horror films often inject terror into ordinary suburbs and quiet forest cabins. Babak Anvari skipped that trope. Instead, he resurrected his childhood terrors from the Iran/Iraq War, when civilians were indiscriminately targeted by missiles, and added a sinister djinn to one family's nightmares. The result is a frightening and deeply authentic film. Also - what foreign horror role should be portrayed by Nic Cage?
