    This Week on a Very Special Shocked & Applaud

    Hi Applauders! We were delayed a week in our recording of this month's episode, but we had enough time before next week to give you a short, conversational non-episody episode!
    We'll read an email from one of our newest Applauders, Logan, reveal what our movie is for this month, and then have a short chat. "About what?!" we hear you almost asking, but then waiting for someone else to raise their hand. About stuff! Just click on the thing, already!
    Happy turkey month!

    House Part 1: Housenpfeffer Incorporated

    House Part 1: Housenpfeffer Incorporated

    It's a horribly horrible Horror October, Applauders! After a hyped suggestion by Sean (from SeanFasts®), Lydia has chosen the Japanese 1977 horror film directed and produced by Nobuhiko Obayashi, "House" .
    If you're a sadist and would like to follow along, this movie is currently streaming on HBO Max. But, we guarantee this movie is more fun to chat about with friends than it is to actually try and sit through alone.
    We'll let you know some production details, courtesy of Sean, discuss our initial (very opinionated) feelings about the film, and get about 5 minutes into the plot... as ya do.

Fantastic!

Such a well researched and exciting show. The hosts do an incredible job and always bring something fresh. Highly recommend!

Applause for this podcast!

The production quality behind this podcast is top notch. The hosts have great insights and intelligent conversations about these movies and also bring hilarious banter to each episode. I started with their Night of the Living Dead series and it made me love the film more as a zombie fan myself. I will definitely be binging everything else they have and anything else to come! Subbed!

Good take on classic cinema

Such a wonderful podcast that really (really!) dives in depth into film, with enthusiasm that is easy to feel. The banter between the three hosts brings a level of excitement and humor to the analysis, going into the specific plot beats and discussing that at length. However instead of being overly critical, they are enthusiastic.

My first episode of theirs was their discussion on Night of the Living Dead (which has yet to conclude). Here I was presented with an excellent discussion on the circumstances around the production of the film and how they themselves appreciate the film on its own merits, reflecting upon their own experiences - recalling a humorous story about how a group of Church kids weren't thrilled with it. This level of energy and fun is present throughout the entire series: a three parter! I feel like I have gotten my fill of a film I haven't seen for years. Highly recommend!
