Josh and Yakov love the Hellraiser franchise more than they probably should, and are watching all nine (nine!) films and tearing them to loving bits one episode at a time.
Episode 56: Mullholland Drive, with Tim Coe
Yakov and Josh talk with Tim Coe about David Lynch's moody, tense, reality-bending meditation on heartbreak, stardom, and the shifting faces of LA.
Episode 55: Grave Encounters, with Whitney Reynolds
Josh and Yakov are joined by Whitney Reynolds to chatter about the good and the ehhhh in this spooky haunted asylum riff.
Episode 54: Hausu
This cult classic from 1977 is all about gonzo experimentation, mixing humor and horror in dizzying but charming ways.
Episode 53: Krampus
A good cast is wasted on an incoherent mashup of several wildly different films, none of which would have been great in the first place.
Episode 52: Thinner
J and Y are at odds over whether this mid-90s horror flick was completely or merely watchably not-so-good. Josh is correct.
Episode 51: Crimson Peak
Josh and Yakov are joined by Mark Popham for a cheery discussion of the good bits and odd stumbles of this very nice-looking piece of genre-mush moodful fun.
Really well put together episodes for any fan of the genre to enjoy
I enjoy this podcast immensely. I used to think to myself "Man, I clearly think about the little details in movies far too much." But apparently I'm not alone. These guys make great movies better and point out the good in bad movies. I recommend this podcast to anyone who enjoys horror movies and also references to "Prometheus" where only one guy has seen the movie.
Yakov & Josh work hard(ish) so we don't have to.
Would you sit through all nine Hellraiser films? Yeeeeah, prob'ly not. But luckily, Yakov and Josh are willing to watch them all so we don't have to! Eventually, they expanded the podcast's scope to other horror films, new and old.
For a horror fan, there's a real pleasure in hearing these two friends banter about the pleasures and despairs of a semi-successful franchise and especially in hearing their diversions and distractions when they have to face the fact that sometimes these films are just too uninspired even to discuss.
We Have Such Films To Show You is a laid-back, conversational podcast; if you prefer snappy scripted back-and-forth or have little patience for pauses and digressions, this probably isn't for you. But if you enjoy hearing two friends chat about horror films' most effective, implausible, or downright laughable moments, give it a listen.
