Welcome to Everything Trying to Kill You, the comedy podcast that talks about horror movies! In episode 65 about Cloverfield, your hosts Mary Kay, Rachel, and Mary answer important questions like these:
DID YOU BUY MARY KAY'S BOOK, YOU SONS OF BITCHES? Why is this somehow even harder to swallow than the fuckery that is Cabin in the Woods? Who is the hottest person Mary Kay has ever seen in real life? What would be the absolute worst garb to be stuck wearing in an apocalyptic scenario? How does one get taken seriously in the apocalypse? Can you imagine trying to survive the apocalypse with a UTI? Would you chase your friend while they chase someone they aren't boning? Do you agree that Nate is the hottest one, like, could he pick us up? How do you cope when your reality goes tits-up instantaneously and there's no information to be had? What scared you more: walking subway tracks, or exploding humans? Can we work Schrödinger's Cat into casual conversation? Where was everyone running to? Where the hell were they all running from, even? Do you think Sephora was a sponsor for this movie? How many times did Hud turn off the camera? What is the least disappointing monster of all time? Could you even make this movie today, or would the premise fall apart thanks to iPhones? Do you remember the hype that was created from the trailer; you know, the one where it's just a party and then suddenly the city is attacked and everyone is as confused as you are?? Did JJ Abrams walk so Netflix could run? Was the monster just a baby shot down to Earth and just flailing in terrified fright? So, then, is this movie basically Dragon Ball Z? Speaking of geeky references, can you guess which character is basically a walking videogame? Or which character is basically every young adult fiction side character? There's a twist. Who's going to survive the apocalypse: able-bodied men or a woman in heels? Can we get Lizzy Caplan to be our friend? How many Tik-Tok references can we make? How many comedians named Jenny do we support? How did they achieve that shot when they are crawling in the topsy turvy hallway? How big is the real head of the Statue of Liberty? Most importantly, what would be the most embarrassing thing for you to have taped over in this circumstance? When the government is watching this footage of what happened that night with the aliens, what totally embarrassing footage of yours is breaking through?
