    SOUTHBOUND (2016) // Creepy Collections

    Kicking off a new month on horror anthologies, we're taking a road trip with Southbound. We're switching up the format a bit: no 60 second synopsis, no movie math. Instead we'll be going through each segment individually with their sub-genres and then rank them at the end. We're talking the cohesion of the twisty tales and how each segment takes a different look morality with connecting motifs. Put your seatbelt on, it's about to get bumpy!

Bloody Blunts Cinema Club F***ing Rocks!

Long-time listener first time reviewer, I’ve been listening to Devaughn since his early days and I truly adore how much love this man has for such a underappreciated classification of moviemaking. The BBCC is a great way to engage in the community of horror lovers and they make you feel welcomed as they present an engaging listen through casual conversation; wether they are holding a film up on a pedestal or ripping it apart, the BBCC is my favorite weekly escape.

The Casual Horror Talk I Need

Love podcast. It has such a casual, relaxed vibe that I enjoy so much. Don’t get me wrong, they still dive into some great thoughts and insights into these films. But, it is a mellow, peaceful addition to my podcast listening every week.
