Christianity and the Horror genre may seem to be opposites, but every week Reed and Nathan put them in dialogue together. Join us for conversations about the things that haunt us and the things that heal us, explorations at the intersection between faith and fear, where we examine what scares us, in order to find what saves us.

In our final stop on this journey of 20/20/2020-2.0 where we examine some of the strongest films of 2020, we make an unexpected swap in our lineup and have a discussion about Christopher Landon's body-swap-slasher, FREAKY. While we fully expected this gleefully entertaining horror comedy to spark some fun conversation, we did not expect it to also …
 
Welcome to another installment in 20/20/2020-2.0 as we log another favorite 2020 film discussion in the books. This time, it's the directorial debut on Netflix from Remi Weekes, HIS HOUSE. A gripping, terrifying story of two people who have suffered tremendous loss and faced incalculable desperation to flee Sudan in the hopes of a new life in Londo…
 
We hope you're awake now! Because we're heading the wintry landscape of Utah for our next discussion in 20/20/2020-2.0 -- THE WOLF OF SNOW HOLLOW. A quirky and unique horror-comedy from writer/director Jim Cummings, this film is remarkably subversive and in addition to being highly entertaining, has quite a bit on its mind about gender, self-awaren…
 
Ladies and gentlemen, you're listening to radio station TFOG, playing you all the hits and all of those strange sounds from all that goes bump in the night. We're continuing our collection of hits from last year called 20/20/2020-2.0 with this impressive science fiction gem called THE VAST OF NIGHT. This independent thriller is one of the most impr…
 
2021 has arrived! And we have some special things planned that involve -- and frankly won't work without -- YOUR participation. Listen to this brief little warm-up to find out what this year's general slate of films are going to be centered around and how YOU can directly select a good chunk of what we cover. We have frequently had listeners ask us…
 
We're back everybody! Starting things off with 20/20/2020-2.0, where we take a look at some of the films from 2020 we didn't yet have the chance to discuss. We check in first at the provocative and challenging film from the directors of Goodnight Mommy, THE LODGE. The conversation takes on a different format for us given the heaviness and difficult…
 
Welcome to 2021 everybody! And welcome back to the Fear of God. We're kicking things off this year -- get it? -- with an episode a bit out of our typical format. Nathan welcomes his brother Josh Rouse -- author, blogger, pastor, and all around excellent guy -- to join him and Reed on a discussion about the hit series continuing the Karate Kid Franc…
 
And so we reach the end of our extended series on learning how to lose, anchored most directly in HBO's THE LEFTOVERS. Season 3 was a bold and unpredictable season, and our conversations about it reflect that, including all of the pain and the joy and the mystery and the discovery that come with our perpetual mission to explore and not explain. Col…
 
The journey to letting the mystery be continues. Phase 2 of our extended series on learning how to lose, anchored in the full seasons of HBO's THE LEFTOVERS, dealt with paradigm shifts -- the places we find ourselves where what we knew and thought we knew is completely turned upside down. Narratively, the Leftovers pivoted to the town of Jarden, Te…
 
The year 2020 taught us more things than we were really ready -- or willing -- to learn. Early in the year, Nathan and Reed began a conversational journey through a sequence of films all centered around one idea: learning how to lose. More than just a treatise on grief or defeat, there was a hope that by exploring the trauma of navigating the world…
 
As the centerpiece of our October season in 2020, we made our way through Ray Bradbury's classic novel of dark carnivals, illustrated men, witches, lightning rods, and humble library janitors: SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES. The novel held a unique relevance given the climate of 2020, with all of the social and political turmoil amidst an ever inc…
 
It's been a crazy and unconventional year, so we wanted to end it in a crazy and unconventional way -- by hosting our first ever New Year's Eve Staff Party! So many of our show favorites are with us (Andy Whitfield, Steve Beckley, Blake Collier, Vera Goudie, and Jacob Hunt) to count down the listener voted favorite horror of 2020, but also to have …

Nat…
 
Silence & Darkness is a wonderful independent thriller about two sisters -- one blind and the other deaf -- who live in a peaceful, pastoral home with their father. However, when a neighbor pays them an unexpected visit, a disturbing mystery begins to unfold which points to a possibly much more sinister truth about their life together. Reed had the…
 
It's the episode where we come home. The tenth episode of our show was John Carpenter's original classic from 1978. Now, four years later in pod-time (and 40 years later in the fictional Haddonfield), Michael Myers is back to wreak havoc on the small town's residents, particularly the iconic heroine, Laurie Strode, in David Gordon Green's HALLOWEEN…
 
It's time for more face-hugging here at the show as this week's installment of #20/20/2020 brings us your top ten favorite horror films of 2017 and a full discussion of Ridley Scott's SIXTH entry in the benchmark sci-fi horror franchise -- ALIEN: COVENANT. While this film certainly isn't the strongest entry in the Alien saga, and a recent viewing o…
 
In complete contrast to both the title and tone of this week's film, Nathan and Reed take things pretty deep with a heartfelt and vulnerable conversation about Jaume Collet-Serra's film starring Blake Lively and a very large shark -- THE SHALLOWS. After another countdown for #20/20/2020 of your listener-voted FAVORITE HORROR FILMS OF 2016, we explo…
 
The work of Guillermo del Toro has received a lot of love and attention on this show, so we were excited when this week's #20/20/2020 installment gave us an excuse to cover his gothic, taboo romance with ghosts in it: CRIMSON PEAK. While we take the film to task for some of its missteps, it provides us a chance to talk about one of its most compell…
 
We fire up the Camaro for some treacherous nighttime car chasing as we log another installment of #20/20/2020 and have a full discussion about Dan Gilroy's thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal, NIGHTCRAWLER.

Hello and welcome back to another installment of Quarterly King, an every-25-episodes-or-so exploration of the work of Stephen King. This release, corresponding by no coincidence at all with 2020's Election Day in America, we explore Stephen King's first #1 bestselling novel, THE DEAD ZONE, and the 1983 film adaptation starring Christopher Walken a…
 
Happy Halloween Eve everyone! All month long, we've been celebrating #thisishalloween by making our way through Ray Bradbury's classic novel Something Wicked This Way Comes.

First of all, it was October, a rare month for The Fear of God... as Nathan and Reed venture into a brand new mini-series of episodes simply and directly titled #thisishalloween. All month long, we'll be discussing stories not only at the intersection of faith and fear, but also at the intersection of Halloween and Childhood. We start our journey b…
 
We began this journey called #inthemourning with a conversation about Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War. It prompted a months-long exploration about learning how to lose as we discussed each episode of HBO's The Leftovers and more than a dozen films which dealt with ghost stories, paradigm shifts, and apocalypses. Now, in this coda, we return again t…

Nothing is explained. Everything is explored. And the…
 
Our journey through HBO's THE LEFTOVERS is nearly concluded, but first, one last stop through a desolate future where humanity has stopped being able to have children as we discuss Alfonso Cuaron's incredible film, CHILDREN OF MEN. Equal parts bleak and hopeful, devastating and inspiring, Children of Men is a film that is so rich in theme and artis…
 
If there ever were a singular, unique piece of film we've ever covered, Mel Gibson's exploration of the last days of the Mayan civilization through the eyes of a survivor desperate to save his family is it. APOCALYPTO received tremendous praise upon its release, despite the rising controversies surrounding Gibson's personal struggles. We heap no sm…
 
Come with us if you want to live... because we're heading all the way back to 1984 for James Cameron's original installment in the landmark sci-fi franchise THE TERMINATOR.
