    WUH: Welcome back, Begley

    WUH: Welcome back, Begley

    Wherein I talk about what's been going on since November 2022 and why I've been taking it easy on episodes and movie watching. Plus some movie recs from 2022 and so far in 2023, some interesting movie watching stats, and a few programming alerts. p.s. Megan and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish are both streaming on Peacock, and Flux Gourmet is on Shudder and Hulu (not Tubi). ;)

    Check out From the Files of Police Squad.

    And the Top Secret episode over on the Projection Booth.

    Give some love to Cambridge & Wishon.

    And listen to this episode from a year ago for more Poison for the Fairies love.

    WUHxKC: Knock at the Cabin (2023)

    WUHxKC: Knock at the Cabin (2023)

    The Begley household is all in (well, except for Lady in the Water) when it comes to Mr. M. Knight Shyamalan, so we were excited to watch his latest film, Knock at the Cabin (2023). Friend of the show, Chris Stachiw, who wasn't as excited, joins me to chat about this pre-Apocalyptic film. Based on the book The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay, the film stars Jonathan Groff, Ben Aldridge, Dave Bautista, Kristen Cui, and Rupert Grint. What happens when four strangers take a family hostage and task them with making an unthinkable sacrifice to save the world? Listen and find out. SPOILER WARNING: Both the film and the book it is based on are spoiled in the episode.

    S7E1. Oh, that's tacky: Murder by Death (1976)

    S7E1. Oh, that's tacky: Murder by Death (1976)

    We're knee deep in spoof territory over here at Weirding Way Media so why not keep the trend going? Mike White and Chris Stachiw join me to talk about an old favorite of mine, Murder by Death (1976). Written by Neil Simon and directed by Robert Moore, Murder by Death is a send-up of whodunits with some of our more well-known detectives getting the parody treatment. The film stars James Coco, Peter Falk, Elsa Lanchester, David Niven, Peter Sellers, and Maggie Smith as some suspiciously familiar faces. Eileen Brennan, Truman Capote, Alec Guinness, Richard Narita, Nancy Walker, and Estelle Winwood round out the cast in this murderous farce. Of course we discuss the problematic portrayal of an Asian character by Peter Sellers, so be warned!

A Personal Horror Podcast. A Must for Gen X.

Mark provides his personal history along with his reflections on horror movies from the 70s and 80s. If you are horror fan and 50ish, this podcast is 100% in your wheelhouse.

Refreshing and reminiscent

If you are like me and you grew up going to your neighborhood video store and renting movies based on the box art or you have any interest in the horror film genre than this is a cool podcast to listen to and reminisce. Is it the most in-depth horror film podcast? Nope! Is it the most professionally produced? Not at all, but Mark brings a level of genuineness and sincerity and a love for weird and amazing movies that is refreshing and candid. You feel as if you are entering a conversation with an excited, yet, reluctant narrator on his personal journey of filmdom. Enter in!!!
