Join marginally popular dark fiction author J.R. Hamantaschen (“You Shall Never Know Security,” “With a Voice that is Often Still Confused But is Becoming Ever Louder and Clearer,” several unrequited love letters) and Derek Sotak (“Nachonomics,” “The Field Guide to Nachos,” “Nachos & You,” and a violent call to arms to be uncovered circa 2025) as they discuss the world of horror in (what is hopefully perceived to be) a light-hearted, frivolous and irreverent way. Those are all three words they’ve never previously been associated with, but here’s hoping! Expect horror fiction, horror movies, horror culture, and interviews / hang-out sessions with authors and creators in the field.

    Episode 163 - Horror Roundup, February 2020, Part 3

    As roundup season draws to a close, we finish strong with our highest ratio of recommendations yet: Pyewacket, Psychomania, Lake Bodom, Underwater, Lake Mungo, Leviathan, Little Monsters, Deep Star 6, It Chapter 2, and Tammy and the T-Rex. We recommend more films than you can shake a stick at, if you’re very weak in the stick shaking game that is. Also, the secret Derek and JR project Grey Seas Are Dreaming Of My Death is now live!

    Episode 161 - Color Out Of Space (2019)

    The duo saw Richard Stanley speak about his plans for Color Out of Space about two years ago, so we would be remiss if we didn’t see how it turned out. We wade through the chuckling hipster-throngs that cling to Nicholas Cage releases like barnacles to give our thoughts on this relatively high profile adaption of Lovecraft’s personal favorite story, “The Color Out of Space” [there will always be a THE to us!“

    Episode 160 - Horror Roundup, February 2020, Part 1

    We said we’d take January off, but JR thought you really needed to hear our opinions on Luz, so here we are. We also cover Nightmare Cinema, The Head Hunter, I’m Thinking of Ending Things, Starfish, Shocker, The Black Hole, Sweetheart, and Nekrotronic. Haven’t you all missed this?

    2019 Christmas Bonus - Treevenge (2008)

    2019 Christmas Bonus - Treevenge (2008)

    Your work may not have given you a Christmas bonus, but we sure will! It’s not worth spending a whole episode covering Treevenge, because it’s only 16 minutes long, but talking about it for 19 or so minutes, sure. This is possibly the highest rated thing we have covered on the show, so check it out before you get a stump in the face.

    Episode 159 - Merry Christmas 12: The Children (2008)

    Episode 159 - Merry Christmas 12: The Children (2008)

    Happy Crimbo! The duo end our holidays with The Children, the 2008 British horror film that asks the question that other movie already asked: who CAN kill a child? There’s a bit of a split on this one, with J.R. actually liking it (with caveats), with Derek complaining like an old person that it was too loud and hard to tell what was going on. Though he isn’t wrong. It’s on Amazon Prime so go watch and join in.

Gold

This production has the golden blend of off the cuff and on topic. They cover a movie thoroughly, from start to finish, with plenty of discussion of individual points; this is a great way to digest the types of movies they discuss.

It’s funny, informative, and J.R. has a buttery smooth voice that help make this show a pleasure to listen to.
