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!

Horrible Horror Movie Wednesday: Leprechaun in Space!

Hello everyone and welcome to the very first post of our brand new segment “Horrible Horror Movie Wednesday!”

I love scary movies and I love every sub-genre of horror. Everything from supernatural to thriller to slasher is my cup of tea. There is a specific sub-genre that has a special place in my heart though and that is, well, the not so great horror movies. We’ve all seen them. You know, the acting may not be the best, or you can see the tag hanging out of the mask for the “scary monster” as he’s attacking some half naked woman. Or maybe it takes place in space. You have to love a horror movie sequel that takes place in space.

Anyway, my point is that I love these movies because so much sincerity and effort goes into them and there is a lot more honesty with them than a lot of high production highfalutin POS’s out there. They’re fun, pure and simple, and I respect and appreciate that.

For the record this segment is called “Horrible Horror Movies” NOT because the movies are necessarily horrible, it’s just that the title has damn good alliteration. Let’s face it, that rolls off the tongue a lot more than “Horror films that aren’t quite good, but they’re made with honesty and are a lot of fun and I am writing this respectfully.” Am I right or am I right?

So, without any more interruption, I present to you our very first Horrible Horror movie: Leprechaun 4: In Space.

Jessica Biel Returns to Scary Movies in “The Tall Man”

It’s been almost ten years since Jessica Biel last delved into the horror genre in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre ­remake and now she returns in Pascal Laugier’s The Tall Man. Biel plays Julia, a nurse who lives in an isolated town where children suddenly start being abducted by the ‘Tall Man’.

An entity whose legend exists in many cultures around the world, The Tall Man is always described by his height and featureless face and is known to take anyone he appears to, particularly children. While the fantastic cult hit Youtube series Marble Hornets’ explores the concept that The Slender Man (As he is also referred to) can take anyone, this feature focuses more on the original myths.

And who better to bring out the relevance of this legendary fable than Pascal Laugier?
