    Y’ALL GOOD?

    Y’ALL GOOD?

    The finale episode of the season has sadly arrived but we left you with plenty to snack on and calm those minds during these chaotic times we’re living in. ACT 1 Tommy’s pouring one out for fine ass Eva Mendes in Urban Legends: Final Cut… ACT 2 Main Discussion we’re leaving you with the super friggin’ delightful film ‘Extra Ordinary’ and a Stephen King book turned series that we’ve been obsessed with ‘The Outsider’. These 2 stories deliver the goods in very different but super satisfying ways…. Go ahead and add ‘The Outsider’ to your social distancing watchlist now. Finally our season finale SCREAM QUEEN nod goes to that bad ass babe Pamela Adlon in The Gate II… Tommy and I been lovin on her 4-eva so it was long overdue. We LOVE and appreciate you all soooo much and sincerely hope that everyone is safe during these times. We’ll be back as soon as things settle a bit, hopefully sooner. Until then we hope the show can be a good distraction as we ride out these next few weeks… Stay safe!

    The Head Got Popped, Like a Grape

    The Head Got Popped, Like a Grape

    WADDUP LOVELIES sorry I was on some all caps b******t but NE WAYZ this week Drea takes us  on a journey in Act I: Have Yall Seen? Where she extolls the virtues of the iconic horror gyal Julie and… we talk about tongues amongst other things in Return of the Living Dead 3: State Sanctioned Chemicals. We get into the b******t in Invisible Man and I’m Not Okay With This, two worthy entries in the genre. Two strong women who nobody believes, until they do. And the mens get F****D UP. And we end with our Scream Queen of the week: Reba McEntire, a whole entire snack a SNACK MACHINE (if you will), who shoots every gun imaginable to protect what she loves in Tremors.

    Tacky but Sweet

    Tacky but Sweet

    Hiiiiiii, WE BACK and of course we came prepared cause WE DON’T PLAY. ACT I Tommy is taking over the reins for another edition of HAVE Y’ALL SEEN?! with ‘Triassic Attack’. It’s a hot ass mess starring Emilia Clarke (pre GOT), that must be seen to truly comprehend. ACT II MAIN DISCUSSION we gotta lovey dovey vibe goin’ on with 2 Valentines Day releases, ‘VFW’ and ‘After Midnight’. ‘VFW’ stars some very familiar faces to exploitation films and they deliver in this throwback like only real veterans to the craft can do. ‘After Midnight’ is a romantic monster movie and I guess that pretty much says it all. Finally our ACT III SCREAM QUEEN of the week is Kyliegh Curran as Abra in ‘Doctor Sleep’. A truly unique and powerful character, played with such confidence and strength you wouldn’t guess it was her first feature film.

    At Least that Weed Tent Was Lit

    At Least that Weed Tent Was Lit

    Mwahhaahhaha my scream kweens! Do we still have to say spoilers abound? Bc they do. Also, it’s come to the point where me and Drea finish each other's sentences. Awwww! Mostly in anger but sometimes not. Also listen to Drea’s judgment on me for being a Trekkie NE WAYZ This week we seek justice for Elise Neal in Scream 2, we give side eye to the SHITE that was Fantasy Island (tho we’d both like to be in that weed tent) while giving BIG UPS to the Furies on Shudder.  We end with our scream queen of the week: Kelly Jo Minter as Yvonne in A Nightmare on Elm Street 5, The Dream Child AKA one of the only black final girls in the 80s. We fully expected her to die, AND SHE DOESN’T! YAAAAS Representation! But… we wished her character had more to chew on ngl

    The Kids Are Alright? Nah, F**k These Kids

    The Kids Are Alright? Nah, F**k These Kids

    We’re bAAAaaack and somehow already halfway through season 2, can y’all believe that shit?! Act I I’m hittin you with yet another Have Y’all Seen? Crazy White Boys Edition, that is. We’re covering a couple of budding young psychopaths in Mikey (1992) and The Paperboy (1994). Not sure why these films were always on tv in the 90’s but I’m thankful. This week’s Act II Tommy and I were hella excited to discuss Come To Daddy and The Lodge. After a few underwhelming horror experiences these 2 seriously came through in some major ways! Finally our Scream Queen of the week is Kiersey Clemons in Sweetheart! Anyone with the presence to carry almost an entire film on their own deserves this title. Also, shout out to natural hair cause Kiersey rocked that shit in her lulu lemons.

    Sabrina and the Manic Pixie Bisexual Sex Torture Demons

    Sabrina and the Manic Pixie Bisexual Sex Torture Demons

    MwwWMAAHAHAHhahaaa my demonic girls and boys and gender noncofrming folks with hellish poise! It’s a new Tuesday of horror and hijinx with yr favorite fallen angels who may or may not be behind on emails lololol NE WAYS This week our Act I: Have Yall Seen? Deals with a Drea hangover fave: Demonic Toys. A flick that proves you can’t trust a wonky, foul mouthed cabbage patch doll. Our Act II: Main discussion follows the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina with our first guest of the series, Gigi Swift! She coordinates the scripts on the show, and gives us insight on everything from Nick’s manic bisexual torture phase, to Antie Z doing FULL LESBIAN NOW, and how Prudence actually saved the world. And of course we end with our Act III Scream Queen with: Sasha Lane in Daniel Isn’t Real. She didn’t come to play with you hoes and she throws hands like someone who knows.

I waited patiently every week from when it was announced and I have to say. This is very entertaining and did not know much background on some of these movies y’all talk about and tbh I actually watched some! Very informative and enjoy hearing different perspectives! Thank y’all!

P.S shout out to Andrea! Hey girl! 😆

POC HORROR FILM CRITIQUE??? YASSS!!!

The podcast I didn’t know I needed.

I’m a big fan of Tommy Pico’s other podcast, Food for Thot, and decided to give this one a shot too and was NOT disappointed. It’s very nice to listen to the poignant thoughts of other POC and their interpretation of horror, which is a genre I’m in love with. Can’t wait to hear what’s next. The duo in this podcast are great. They compliment each other very well.
