    Episode 158: The Exorcist III

    Episode 158: The Exorcist III

    With a new Exorcist movie getting a theatrical release this week, we thought there was no better way to kick off our Spooky Linings month than with a retrospective look at the only good sequel to the original. It's of course 1990's The Exorcist III. A slow burn, pseudo neo-noir film with a truly dreadful tone that is only hindered by its insistence at telling instead of showing. That being said, this one is definitely worth your time. Put on your straight jacket, climb around on the ceiling, and shut your goddamn mouth! (respectfully) as we crack open this wild ride of a movie, along with all those insane cameos in the Heaven scene, why William Friedkin (R.I.P.) was one of the greatest haters of all time, using Imagine Dragons songs as mnemonic devices for movie titles, and a hell of a lot more.

    The Exorcist III stars George C. Scott, Ed Flanders, Jason Miller, Scott Wilson, Nicol Williamson, and Brad Dourif. Directed by William Peter Blatty.

    Episode 157: The Whale

    Episode 157: The Whale

    After a much needed break, we're rejuvenated, refreshed, and ready to kick off Season 7. And what better movie to be energized to discuss than one where the protagonist sits on a couch the whole time? In keeping with tradition, we're discussing yet another Aronofsky movie for our season premiere, and this time it's 2022's The Whale. A powerful yet divisive film from Aronofsky, so there's certainly a lot to talk about. So grab some KFC and kick up your feet as we discuss the movie, plus the incredible return of the great Brendan Fraser, the fallacy in logic with Jehovah's Witnesses, recasting this movie with the leads of Succession, and much, much more. It's good to be back!

    The Whale stars Brendan Fraser, Sadie Sink, Hong Chau, Ty Simpkins, Samantha Morton, and Sathya Sridharan. Directed by Darren Aronofsky.

    Silver Linings Watchalongs: Speed (Live Commentary)

    Silver Linings Watchalongs: Speed (Live Commentary)

    It's the dog days of summer, and while there's still a little bit of a wait before Season 7 kicks off, we're bringing you something very, very special as a bonus to hold you over. It's a special episode on one of Dustin's favorite movies of all time: 1994's Speed! Even by 2023's standards, it's fair to say this film is what Mallie routinely refers to as a "white knuckle thrill ride". But does it still hold up? Join us and find out, because this isn't your average episode. We're not just talking about the movie, but talking during the movie. That's right: it's a live commentary! In what we're calling "Double Speed Dating", Dustin and Nathan recruit their betrotheds and past guests Priscilla Hendry and Ashley McGlothren to cover every second of this fantastic film.

    We cover a wide, wide range of topics, including Priscilla confusing Jeff Daniels with Dave Coulier, the other actors considered for Jack and Annie (including Tom Hanks and Halle Berry), the brilliance of Michael Bay's Ambulance, "The Annie" haircut being the original "The Rachel", the absolutely illogical route the bus traverses in this movie, and a ton more. So grab your Blu-ray copy or load up that stream of the movie and listen along with us. And remember: don't get dead.

    You can listen to Nathan and Dustin's band The Fever // The Rage's debut album NeverEnding now.

    You can also check out Southern Haunts and Oh, That’s a Scary Movie on Apple Podcasts or wherever get your podcasts.

    Speed stars Keanu Reeves, Dennis Hopper, Sandra Bullock, and Joe Morton. Directed by Jan de Bont.

    NOTE: This episode is intended to be used as a watchalong; a live commentary track to be played in unison with the movie itself. We used a copy of the Blu-ray to watch the film, and we provide the timecode to sync up with our commentary. In our episode, you can jump to 7:10 to begin the movie.

    Episode 156: Malignant

    Episode 156: Malignant

    We're closing up shop for the season, but not before talking about one of our favorite movies from the last few years. It's the "sometimes maligned, sometimes adored" Malignant from James Wan. A very divisive film that some audiences either didn't get, didn't have the time for, or simply didn't approve, but for those who embraced it, they found an absolute gem. And we've got an episode so good it'll make you want to tear your hair out. So slip on your giallo gloves and crawl into bed with us as we crack open this incredible movie to discuss all things Gabriel, plus the stigma of Mountain Dew, the "horror goatse", doctors with catch phrases, Malignant vs. M3gan, and much, much more!

    And, as always, thanks for another great season of TSLP. See you on the other side for Season 7!

    Malignant stars Annabelle Wallis, George Young, Jake Abel, Maddie Hasson, Michole Briana White, Jacqueline McKenzie, Ingrid Bisu, Jon Lee Brody, Paula Marshall, Patrick Cox, Rachel Winfree, and Paul Mabon. Directed by James Wan.

    Episode 155: The Menu

    Episode 155: The Menu

    In our penultimate episode of the season, we're pulling up a chair to the table as we devour 2022’s The Menu. This sleek, stylish, and sophisticated tale of the elites getting what's coming to them has a rich layer of humor and terror that's worthy of your attention. So tuck that napkin into your shirt and grab your utensils as we crack open this great movie to talk about it all, as well as the magic of eating fast food as a kid, Elon Musk's secret plan to kill us all (allegedly), why Steven Segal was the worst SNL host ever, and other great discussions. Plus, Mallie plays the banjo! All of that and more, but we have to beg of you one thing. It's just one. Do not listen. Hear. Savor. Relish. Consider every word that you place inside your ears. Be mindful. But do not listen. Our episode is too precious for that.

    The Menu stars Ralph Fiennes, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicholas Hoult, Hong Chau, Janet McTeer, Judith Light, John Leguizamo, Rob Yang, Mark St. Cyr, Reed Birney, Aimee Carrero, and Arturo Castro. Directed by Mark Mylod.

Birdemic

So for like 10 episodes I thought every time y’all said Birdemic, you were talking about Bird Box.
Cuz it’s like a pandemic with birds in the title.
And I laughed to myself every time bc I was like that’s clever and kinda dumb cuz birds are in that for like 10 seconds. It was like my favorite recurring bit.
Anyway, I’m Steph and I’m a douche and I love this podcast.

Glad I found this

I discovered this show swiping through all the tik tok nonsense and it was the Terminator episode which I find weird that up until now 2023 it’s being reviewed, any who. Been hooked ever since! Every episode cracks me up, great hosts and keep the guest hosts coming. Please don’t change a thing, everything works!!!

Great show, friends, fun, laughing

My first episode was Pi, season 5. Good stuff. I like your energy and the chatty atmosphere. One of the hosts sounds like Donny Cates (the comics writer). I haven't seen this movie since college and now gotta go revisit it!
