    Little Cuts 15: Billy Zane is Beautiful. That's It. That's the Title.

    It's the end of an era. Well, a small era. We have finished our Wrong Turn sojourn and are transitioning away from giallo to Hammer horror!

    SPOILERS FOR FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET
    We talk about the ending villain reveal from 13:40-17:30.

    But first, Terry gets thirsty over Billy Zane in Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight and Mary Beth talks about the woman-directed found footage film In Memorium. Then we finish Dario Argento's "Animal Trilogy" with Four Flies on Grey Velvet and go to West Virginia one last time with Wrong Turn (2021).

    Episode 72: Sator Filmmaker Jordan Graham and Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    This week we talk to filmmaker Jordan Graham about his haunting new feature Sator. It's a film whose production history is as wild as the movie. We talk about the actual found footage used in the film, his grandmother who would speak of Sator and how it all influenced his film. It's a wild story.

    Then we talk Terminator 2: Judgment Day and how a scared young Jordan would dare himself to put the tape in. Get ready for us to discuss the best action film of all time.

Essential listening for horror kids

After following them on Twitter for a long time, I finally started listening to this show maybe three weeks ago, and I’ve already consumed like 10 episodes. Every installment makes me want to stop what I’m doing and immediately re-watch the film being discussed. As hosts, Mary Beth and Terry are naturally funny and deeply insightful. And their eclectic guests bring such distinguishable films to dissect. This podcast has permanently changed the way I see some movies. (P.S. to M.B.—I’m in the Baltimore-Annapolis area!)
