It's oh so satisfying when the antagonist gets theirs. Sometimes we sit through entire movies, novels, or presidential administrations waiting for the sweet sweet schadenfreude.Come for the intro by Chuckles the Murder Clown (a throwback to the Clowns episode), stay for the noble kickstarter effort to hire Bonnie Bedelia to punch Trump in the face.…
 
The Thing. The Fly. Slither. The horrific onscreen transformations we gleefully chat about in our only episode to feature a content warning due to general grossness. NSF(N)L, which is obviously "Not Safe for Naked Lunch". It's a long one - we have a lot of thoughts, most of them truly disgusting.By Leila, Geoff, & Ira
 
Love em or hate em, clowns are a part of the horror landscape. From Pennywise to Sweet Tooth, you just can't escape the funhouse. Celebrate Halloween with us as we poke around in the cotton candy-filled abdomen of the scary clown genre in this autopsy. Ira also introduces Chuckles, the Murder Clown. Your carnival experience may never be the same.…
 
In this episode we explore movies about isolation, quarantine, and the way our tenuous understand of "society" breaks down under pressure. We use 10 Cloverfield Lane as a jumping off point, moving on to The MIst, Night of the Living Dead, Cabin in the Woods, Alien, and other films about people trapped together, making increasingly wacky decisions. …
 
In this podcast series I sit down with uber fans of music I also enjoy to see what deeper meaning it has for them and why they love it so. In this episode I interview Jennifer and Nick, a couple whose love for Tool predates their relationship and forms the foundation for many of their memories and experiences. Jennifer's Essential Tracks:1. Forty S…
 
In this podcast series I sit down with uber fans of music I also enjoy to see what deeper meaning it has for them and why they love it so. In this episode I interview Jess about her love of singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens, and how/why his music has influenced her. Tracks (title-album):1. Mercury - Planetarium 2. Mystery of Love - Call Me By Your N…
 
So we recorded this episode a few weeks ago, it's a bit dated now. We're all happy for Parasite, which was such a long shot we didn't even talk about the possibility of it winning anything. Come find out what our picks for the Big Categories would be, and find out our picks for best movies of 2019 and the decade prior are. What movie does Ira descr…
 
Note: This episode was recorded last summer after a beach trip and filming-location pilgrimage, but shelved due to technical problems with Leila's mic. She sounds weirder than normal! But we love this movie so much, we had to unearth this, our Aster-cast. Ari holds us, and feels like home to us. And not just because his name is Ira's name backwards…
 
Let’s talk about lycanthropy! The howliest, hairiest denizens of the horror pantheon, werewolves are generally relegated to ensemble roles where they back up other, suaver monsters, but we’re shining some Halloween moonlight on these shapeshifters of the night. So grab your silver bullets, pull on your red flannel shirt, and come with us into the f…
 
Tis the season for spooking, and we're inviting you to spend some time with us in the creepy old mansion at the end of the lane. What's that noise? Let's each take a candle, split up, and see if we can figure out the mystery that lies within. Could it be the Scooby Gang? Restless, perhaps malevolent dick-ghosts? Or maybe it's just the BooGees, read…
 
Get out your s'mores and join us by the campfire. In the woods. Away from civilization. What was that? Did you hear a noise? I'm sure it's nothing. Have another brewski.On this episode we're discussing our favorite hot, sweaty, bloody summer flicks. From Camp Crystal Lake to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, if it's a muggy, mosquito-and-psychopath-f…
 
Jordan Peele's follow-up to Get Out, Us examines the tethered, shadow selves of everyday Americans. We discuss themes and talk about other movies with doppelgangers. We may not be who we say we are, but how would you prove it?**Our one criticism is that despite being set in the 80s at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, there is a noted lack of sexy sa…
 
Grab your crucifix to fend off the children of the night in this episode, devoted to bloodsuckers. What are the rules? The characteristics? The Archetypes? We span the positive and negative types, from relentlessly arty to gleeful splattery, quoting (mostly Bill Paxton) as we go.You might even learn something about Romanian history. Discussion Topi…
 
Come, join us as we squelch into movies and games about the undead. Can paper straws cause the zombie apolcalypse? Will Joan Cusack be there to call the ghouls assholes?

We know next to nothing about professional wrestling, but we know we love the Netflix show GLOW. Comedy, drama, engaging characters, and backflips off the turnbuckle - we're there for it all. Put on your favorite Shitpope album, bake some pies of rage, and join us as we return from summer hiatus and tag team about the sleeper hit.This is a great vi…
 
Of course we have to weigh in on the phenomenon - "Black Panther: The one superhero movie even Geoff liked". This is a hopeful, fun, beautiful, cool as hell, kick-ass movie with a message. It's hard to get all that into one film. Spoilers, maybe? Is there anyone on earth who hasn't seen this movie yet?Music used:Ludwig Göransson - Black Panther Ori…
 
Do we crave our own obliteration? Or do we just crave cosmic horror and fractals?Our minds were blown this weekend by Alex Garland's follow-up to Ex Machina, "Annihilation", which is about ... uhh ... life and cells and relationships and all kinds of heady shit. Obviously spoilers are plentiful, so go see the movie before we confuse you further wit…
 
You know when you're in a weird social situation and you feel like you should leave, but the rules of society dictate you should stay or commit the sin of Rudeness? Yeah, that's how people die in horror movies. Trust that gut and GTFO before it's too late.Who are we kidding? You're totally going to stay and get knifed up. To do anything else would …
 
Romance! The Soviets!Sex with sexy fishmen sexily!Lots of Awards Because It Gives Us A Collective Break from the Horrors of Reality!We've been throughly charmed and mesmerized by Guillermo Del Toro's modern-day fairy tale "The Shape of Water". Anchored by a spectacular cast, full of those practical effects we love so much, and with enough interspec…
 
Appropriate to the season, we're discussing the sometimes scary but mostly terrible, sexist, and pointlessly pointy horror sub-genre of SLASHER MOVIES. So grab your gallon o' fake blood and an impossibly shiny kitchen knife and join us as we unmask Jason, out Batman, and analyze the (possibly totally made-up) Giallo films "Four Wigs in a Chevrolet"…
 
(Note: this starts cold with us bantering. Sorry, no fancy intros this week)We were all captivated this week by the first trailer for the new version of IT. We all read this as (apparently unsupervised) children, and fondly remember the Tim Curry miniseries from the 1990s. The trailer looks nice and horrifying, so we have to chat about it. Also inc…
 
Powered by blue milk (sourced from only the finest local banthas), the sibs return to discuss a lil indie film called Rogue One. Truthfully, it's mostly a Mikkelsen/Tudyk lovefest, but we also make a lot of inaccurate droid noises, generally butcher the Star Wars canon/timeline, and manage as always to shoehorn the Aliens universe into the conversa…
 
After a week hiatus, the sibs are back and as random access as ever. This time it's all about AI, synthetic humans, robots, androids, etc. We discuss Asimov's rules of robotics, how much Iron Giant tore out our cold metal hearts, and how Ex Machina has the best AI reveal in cinema history. So in the immortal words of Bender, "Hey sexy mama, wanna k…
 
Finally discussing films from the current century, this week the sibs imbibe while chatting about Captain America: Civil War and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Geoff earns the title Old Man Grumpy, Ira pits Merida against Hawkeye, and Leila demonstrates uncanny knowledge of obscure comics characters. At some point Ray Stevens' The Streak is involve…
 
We jump right into part II of the AlienDay 'cast from the siblings! This episode starts with a True/False game with real and fake factoids, critiques the 3rd and 4th movies as well as Prometheus (Ira calls Geoff 'Brometheus' for not hating it), and ends with some haikus dedicated to the franchise. Believe it or not, its a great ep.…
 
This week, in observance of Alien Day, we’re imbibing thematic drinks and chatting about All Things Xenomorph. This is a two-parter, with this week’s show focusing on Alien, Aliens, the 3-2-1 game, the general badassery of Ellen Ripley, and the uselessness of cats in space. And we do quote Lt. Hudson quite a bit, so stop your grinnin’ and drop your…
