In each episode, Patrick Hamilton and Gena Radcliffe unpack all the gory details of horror cinema's least discussed topic: the characters. From Friday the 13th to Nightmare on Elm Street and beyond, our mission is to detail each hack, slash, and decapitation in the hopes that a victim's untimely end is just the beginning of the jokes we can make about them.

    Death Spa (w/ Wynter Mitchell)

    Push! Lunge! Squat thrust!! This week on Kill By Kill, we’re hitting the gym to get in shape with 1989’s DEATH SPA and here to help us sweat to this particular oldie is the cohost of Waiting to X-hale and Returning Champion, Wynter Mitchell! Along the way, we ask all the big questions, like why so many filmmakers confuse Los Angeles for Transylvania? Have you ever been horny enough to follow a child’s treasure map to sex? Why is this death by aerobics movie have a touch of Jaws to it? How many times you need to shoot a ghost to kill it? Plus we stretch out to get one more Choose Your Own Death-venture in and debate why this movie refuses to understand how skeletons work? Get in the shape of your life - or death - with us today!

    Dish By Dish S2 ep7 "Yakimono"

    Dish By Dish S2 ep7 "Yakimono"

    We love it when a plan comes together - and that’s exactly what happens in Season 2, Episode 7 of HANNIBAL! One FBI agent-in-training comes out of a hole while Dr. Chilton digs himself into a larger one. Along the way, we debate Alana’s dating strategies, discuss everyone’s crisis of confidence vs. the ability to admit when you’re wrong, and we handcuff one suspicious ham sandwich. All this and a multi-instrumental Choose Your Own Death-venture - plus we talk about how many pokes it takes to kill the Wound Man. We’re serving it all up hot for you!!

    Evilspeak (w/ Josh Bragg of Haunting Season)

    Evilspeak (w/ Josh Bragg of Haunting Season)

    It may be programmed in BASIC but this episode is totally demonic as we upload 1981’s EVILSPEAK into your hard drive with the help of Haunting Season’s Josh Bragg! Along the way, we ask if your curse hangs in the RAM, wonder why Clint Howard was forced to buy your own toupee, enter the Aardvark Academy, consider bootlegging our own holy water, listen to a semi-nude chef, debate seated undressing, and meet our first Unholy Flying Cooperdick. All of this plus we summon Choose Your Own Death-venture and grapple with the ecology of gasoline-storage crosses. Hit ENTER with us today!!

    Dish By Dish S2 Ep 5/6 "Mukouzuke/Futamono"

    Dish By Dish S2 Ep 5/6 "Mukouzuke/Futamono"

    For anyone else, a seat at this table would cost an arm and a leg - but we just start with the leg as we serve up a super-sized course of HANNIBAL. We’re talking about both episode 5 (Mukouzuke) and 6 (Futamono) with novelist, podcaster and Returning Champion, Beau North. We discuss a Hannibal/Big crossover, the secret origin of Abel Gideon, Beau mounts a reasoned defense of Freddie Lounds, we trade leg recipes, debate the best antler-friendly home situations, and welcome the parade of sexy serial killer torsos in these episodes. Plus, we play a wicked game of Choose Your Own Death-venture and open a case file into what is going on with the love life of Dr. Alana Bloom!

    John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness (w/ Josh Hollis)

    John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness (w/ Josh Hollis)

    We have a message for you… and you’re not going to like it. Well, maybe you’ll love it!! We’re investigating the 1987 John Carpenter classic, PRINCE OF DARKNESS with Returning Champion and Kill By Kill artist-in-residence, Josh Hollis! Along the way, we scientifically examine why critics feel that horror movie characters need to be aware they’re in a horror movie, discuss painted on polos, wonder if Meatloaf is filming a video on the same set, we pitch a “buddy cop” flick for Jerry Seinfeld and the Vlasic Pickle Stork, consider demonic facials, and ask - is this movie a secret sequel to THE VISITOR? All that and we play a swirling round of Choose Your Own Death-venture and talk mirror fingering. Like adults do.

    Halloween Kills trailer reaction

    Halloween Kills trailer reaction

    It's the episode we come home again as we talk about the trailer for this October's most anticipated horror release, HALLOWEEN KILLS! We talk bad boyfriend regrets, deadly firefighter implements, overreactions in Haddonfield AND Twitter, and which of the many kills in the trailer we think is a standout. Plus, we share our fond hopes for the Halloween franchise and talk about why people insert so much drama into spoilers in marketing. Grab your Silver Shamrock mask and watch along, kiddies!!

Fantastic

This is my favorite podcast. I didn’t know where to start, and I ended up choosing Black Christmas 2005 of all episodes to listen to, and promptly downloaded probably 20 more episodes and made my way through the whole catalog, now I can’t wait to see what’s next. The hosts are a delight, I love Patrick and Gena, Dish by Dish is a DELIGHT and as long as they keep doing this weird little podcast I’ll be here to listen. So many gems, and plenty of movies I haven’t seen that were worth checking out for a laugh too.

So re-listenable!

Still my favorite podcast and upon periodic re-listening I find the jokes still work and warehouse work is just a little less warehousey... so excited for prophecy! My fave kill in that genre is the Twinkie sleeping bag and has been ever since I saw this movie on vhs in honors chemistry in high school (that is not a joke thanks Mr. Sinclair) and it ignited my love of trash movies. Just put together the left turn my life took from honors chemistry to a warehouse and this movie might be directly responsible. Whoa. Gonna make the choice not to examine that too much. Share the podcast!

SPACE TORI ,

The BEST

This podcast is my FAVORITE.

Still waiting for an Evil Ed episode though.
