Ep. 58 Halloween: H20

Holy hiatus, Spiderman! The podcast is back with three more episodes. Recorded pre-covid (hey, remember those times?) James and Giselle discuss the 1998 slasher-fest “Halloween: H20.” The two compare and contrast the 1998 return of Laurie Strode to the 2018 one, how chardonnay drinking axe wielding Laurie is… kind of amazing, and how adorably 90s this sequel is. Check it out!

Welcome back, everyone! This week the hosts discuss a horror movie neither of them had seen before *gasp*.

In this episode James and Giselle break down the movie; Giselle admits that for the first thirty minutes she thought the protagonists were carnies (they’re theater actors), and James is fascinated by the hyper intelligent zombies that specialize in yachting.

Ep. 35 Child’s Play

It was only a matter of time before the hosts talked about everyone’s favorite homicidal ginger haired doll. Nope, not Annabelle, Chucky! Yes, this week James and Giselle dive into “Child’s Play” and talk about how Chucky stands out in the horror pantheon, how it’s aged, and ask why is it that single moms in horror movies are always dropping the ball. Seriously, why is that a thing.

Two things that James and Giselle love: Horror and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Naturally it was only a matter of time before they talked about… “The Grudge!” Yes, this week the hosts talk about the 2004 American remake of J-horror classic “Ju-on”, their impressions of the movie then versus now, how the movie has aged, and what makes J-horror unique from other facets of the genre. Oh, and they both do their death rattle impersonation, so fair warning :O

Unpleasant dreams ;)

Oh, and they are pretty sure that this movie is actually an episode of Doctor Who.
