    SJ, Dan, and Spaventa unpack what they unanimously think is the best new horror movie of 2023, the Australian supernatural possession film from A24, Talk To Me. They discuss how the embalmed hand is not traditionally spooky, how the movie achieves its rough and visceral violence, the unique Australian elements, and the terror of being filmed for tiktoks while under spiritual possession.

    Happy Halloween! This week on patreon SJ, Dan, and Spaventa went to the see the new Exorcist movie at 1:30pm on a weekday. They discuss the questionable choices that ruin the big exorcism scene, the solid acting and production design, how most of the diversions from the original are misguided, one character we can't believe made it into the final cut, Ellen Burstyn's cringeworthy line about the patriarchy, and the late William Friedkin's message to director David Gordon Greene. Also Dan bought a repulsive movie hot dog. We get into it all.

    Starring Leslie Odom Jr, Lidya Jewett, Olivia O'Neill, Jennifer Nettles, Norbert Leo Butz, Ann Dowd, Ellen Burstyn, and Linda Blair

No movies required

I wasn’t sure if I’d like it because I don’t really watch that many movies. but after a friend recommended it I tried the episode about It with Dan, Sara, and Ian and it was really funny with great banter. Ironically way more fun and unbeat than I would have expected. With podcasts I just want to learn things and laugh. Like, the material isn’t really that important to me. I imagine it would be really fun to watch the movies along with them but I just went in completely blind and laughed a lot.

Obsessed

Their dynamic is the best. The guests are the best. The movies are obviously, the best. This pod needs to go viral STAT!!!!

The It Couple is IT!

I was pleasantly surprised with The It Couple. I accidentally came across it and was intrigued by the premise of a husband (Dan St. Germain, a very funny a comic) and wife (SJ-who I don’t think is a comic, but should be because she’s hysterical) duo chatting about horror movies with a different guest each episode. The structure of SJ recapping the plot keeps the conversation always moving along and on point-it really helps listeners not get confused and make sense of a movie they may not have even seen. Everyone is hilarious and brings a unique and lighthearted twist to the horror film podcast genre. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who enjoys movies, the horror genre, comedy, or any combination of the three!
