    Scary Rhymes, Kaiju Chimes, and Wilhelm Scream Sublime: Rhyme or Die, Howl from Beyond the Fog and The Lair

    Scary Rhymes, Kaiju Chimes, and Wilhelm Scream Sublime: Rhyme or Die, Howl from Beyond the Fog and The Lair

    This week, Melissa explores a new-to-us website for short films and jives with Rhyme Or Die (United Kingdom, 2021), a blend of 8 Mile and Saw with killer beats. Grady watches Howl From Beyond The Fog (Japan, 2021), a fantastic practical effects kaiju flick with behind-the-scenes footage and a mischevious cat. Marcus watched Brazilian B-movie Cemetery of Lost Souls (2020) solo - big mistake, it needs a distracted crowd - and celebrated the campy alien action vibes of The Lair (UK, 2022). Also, Melissa just got back from a vacation that was very Colorado and Marcus' toddler relives the last scene of your favorite found footage movie.
    Here's a link to the Texas Monthly article we mentioned. Not horror, but an interesting read.

    Sharkrebleu! Under Paris, Black Forest & (more) Stopmotion

    Sharkrebleu! Under Paris, Black Forest & (more) Stopmotion

    Sharks are our friends! We should swim with them! Join us as we dive into the chummy waters of the Seine for the "platonic ideal" of so-bad-it's-good shark flicks, Under Paris (France, 2024). Then, watch the sincere but flawed folk horror Black Forest (Brazil, 2018), but if you jump ahead to the 1:18.20 mark, you'll be treated to the finest wild, cheesy, and splattery B-grade goodness that Tubi has to offer. Also, Marcus gets thoroughly creeped out by Stopmotion (United Kingdom, 2023) and a very Tales from the Crypt-y anthology series from Indonesia hits Netflix.
    (Sidebar: Shark attacks are pretty rare and most of the time you can safely swim with many of them, Shark Week is coming up soon ... but we're not about to let that get in the way of fine cinema.)

    Stop Motion Nightmares and Nocturnal Slashers: Stopmotion & Nightwatch: Demons are Forever

    Stop Motion Nightmares and Nocturnal Slashers: Stopmotion & Nightwatch: Demons are Forever

    What's scarier: Creatures from the uncanny valley crawling up to do horrifying things that shouldn't be possible for stop motion animation, or generations of serial killers stalking and scalping their victims? If you answered stop motion, you're right - that's undeniably freakier - but both options are totally worth watching. This week, Grady and Melissa are thoroughly chilled by Stopmotion (United Kingdom, 2023) and Marcus popped some popcorn for thirty years of creepy Danish slashers with Nightwatch (1994) and Nightwatch: Demons are Forever (2023). Plus - inky body horror and a Tubi surprise are dropping this week, and technical difficulties reawaken the AI-generated "Funk Bot" in the last seven-ish minutes.
    Articles mentioned in this episode:
    "Stopmotion director says his brand of animation is necromancy," by Tasha Robinson for Polygon
    "AMC Networks Promotes Emily Gotto to Senior Vice President of Acquisitions and Production for Shudder," by AMC Networks. Note: My memory of this release was fuzzy and I got some important details wrong, but the head of international acquisitions is still getting a big promotion and we still Stan Shudder.

    A Hungry "Cark," Feral Killers and Subterranean Nightmares: Deep Fear, Cub, Deep Fear & Furiosa

    A Hungry "Cark," Feral Killers and Subterranean Nightmares: Deep Fear, Cub, Deep Fear & Furiosa

    Dive deep into fear with us this week as we wander into open waters, haunting forests and chilling catacombs. Melissa goes camping with a grisly throwback slasher in Cub (Belgium & Netherlands, 2014), Grady swims with cocaine-addled sharks that are just barely so-bad-they're-good in Deep Fear (UK & France, 2023) and Marcus gets lost in the ruins under Paris in the other Deep Fear (Belgium & France, 2022). Also - sure you've seen insane apocalyptic car chases before, but should you see Furiosa anyway? And, will the shark flick swimming onto Netflix next week be better?

    Zoomer Humor & The Back Shelf at Blockbuster

    Zoomer Humor & The Back Shelf at Blockbuster

    Just a quick update this week - zoomer humor slays in the trailer for Killer Body Count (Canada & South Africa, 2024), possibly the most Tubi movie to ever Tubi, and the original Nightwatch (Denmark, 1994) has all the offbeat Blockbuster Energy vibes and some himbo-y surprises. Plus, we're taking a week to get stoked for patriarchal nightmare fuel In Flames (2023, Pakistan & Canada) and animated chills in Stopmotion (United Kingdom, 2023).

    Deadpan Cops, Creepy Demons & Crawly Spiders: Baskin, Wellington Paranormal and Infested

    Deadpan Cops, Creepy Demons & Crawly Spiders: Baskin, Wellington Paranormal and Infested

    Cops have challenging jobs. One day, you're dealing with ghost parties and a possessed dog, and the next you've stumbled through a portal to hell. This week, we patrol the not-so-mean New Zealand streets with Wellington Paranormal (2018-2022) and get pulled into Turkish nightmare fuel with Baskin (2015). We also get swarmed by skittering spiders and an uneven tones with Infested (France & USA, 2023. Plus, a thirty-year-old Danish crime horror and its new sequel hit Shuddre this week along with the most vicious elevator in all of Amsterdam.
