Stephanie is frightened by scary movies, and Jack thinks that's hilarious (he’s maybe a little scared too). But as dedicated film lovers, they’re setting out to fill in this blank spot in their viewographies. Together they will dive deep into the genre of horror and find some laughs in-between the screams.
Episode 30 - The Thing
Stephanie and Jack head south, way south, to Antarctica for 1982’s The Thing. Is it Kurt Russell at his hottest? Is it the best dog acting of its generation? Is it too gross or just gross enough? Take a sip of J&B and find out.
Episode 29 - The Bird with the Crystal Plumage
Jack and Stephanie take a look at their first Giallo film! It's the 70s, it's Italian, it's bloody and creepy and fun. It's Dario Argento's The Bird with the Crystal Plumage. "Send in the perverts."
Episode 28 - Cronos
¡Ay dios mio! Stephanie and Jack tackle Guillermo del Toro’s first major film, Cronos. Old man vampires? Disappearing mustaches? Is Ron Perlman the best? (Yes.)
Episode 27 - The Exorcist
The power of Christ compels you to listen to Stephanie and Jack revisit their traumatic childhood viewings of the 1973 masterpiece, The Exorcist!
Episode 26 - It Comes At Night
Jack and Stephanie don't know what comes at night, but it certainly isn't excitement. Maybe the true enemy is the friends we made along the way? Also: the dog dies.
Episode 26 - Color Out of Space
Stephanie and Jack are back and diving into a well full of weirdness with 2019’s Color Out of Space! Nic Cage and mutated alpacas make for a strange psychedelic romp that both scared and grossed out both hosts.
Long derided as a vehicle for quality cinema, the horror genre, here, finally gets the deconstruction and incisive discussion it has long deserved. Two thumbs up—way up—for this artisanal pod craft. Nonpareil.
Verrrry Spooky! With lots of laughs!
If you like movies and you like to laugh, this is a great podcast! Stephanie may admittedly hate horror, but both her and Jack make it fun to listen along as they delve into scary movies!
