The Evil Dead films are explored in this episode.  That's the original "The Evil Dead", "Evil Dead II", "Army of Darkness", and the remake, "Evil Dead" (which is like the original but, among other differences, doesn't have the word "The" in its title).

March 13th, 2014

The year 1984 and its contributions to spooky movies is explored in this totally awesome episode.  Join Kat and Marshall as they take a look at what was giving folks goosebumps thirty years ago.

It'll be radical.  For sure.

February 13th, 2014

A haunted house in the suburbs was the original and masterful take that "Poltergeist" gave to the haunted house genre.  No one in the audience could feel safe from noises in the night after Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper let them know that a house doesn't need creaking doors or secret passages to be haunted.

Join Marshall and Kat as they explore that ranch-style haunted house with wall-to-wall carpeting, moving furniture, and plenty of closet space.  Stay a while as they discuss "Poltergeist II: The Other Side" and "Poltergeist III" (which didn't get a subtitle but has earned a special place in Kat's heart).

Also, Kat shares her joy in getting to check a life-long dream off her bloody "bucket" list.

The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow

January 13th, 2014

The spectral headless horseman and the unfortunate Ichabod Crane are the subject of this episode as we explore "The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow".  

Starting with the original story by Washington Irving, "The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow" has galloped through through the years, inspiring several incarnations.  This Boys and Ghouls episode looks at some of the best; the Disney version with Bing Crosby, the made-for-TV-movie with Jeff Goldblum, and the Tim Burton version with Johnny Depp.  

AND NOW A WARNING... this in-depth exploration does not go so deep as to cover the new FOX show, "Sleepy Hollow" since, at the time of our recording, the network show was in a too-early-to-tell stage.  However, the legend of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" gave us enough fun and informative material to produce a robust episode.

His Name Was Jason

Friday The Thirteenth

September 13th, 2013

The “Friday The Thirteenth” series is dissected in this timely episode.  For Kat and Marshall to discuss every movie in the franchise (or, the first ten, anyway) it would take two episodes.  So, that’s what they did.

So, join us for part one of our exploration of Camp Crystal Lake’s only permanent resident, Jason Voorhees.  Listen in as Jason progresses from being a jump-scare at the end of part one, to being a deranged killer with a bag over his head in part two, to being a deranged killer with a hockey mask in part three, to “dying” in part four.

Also, Kat discusses how it’s not easy being green.

The Doctor Is In

August 13th, 2013

Doctors in horror movies are exceptionally scary, with their sharp scalpels and pointed needles.  Join Kat and Marshall as they examine those fearsome physicians and dissect what makes them so chilling. 

At the heart of this episode is 1992’s “Dr. Giggles”, which Kat watched over and over as a youth and Marshall is just seeing for the first time.  Will the deadly doctor’s post-mortem puns and medical one-liners still hold up?  Or, will the duo need a second opinion?

DIAGNOSIS: entertaining and informative.

PERSCRIPTION: repeated listening.

Blockbuster Night

April 13th, 2013
