You’re deep in the ruins of an old castle, surrounded by darkness and the stench of mould. One of your close friends died somewhere back in the twisting rooms and corridors and it’s pushed your other two companions to the breaking point. One has retreated into shell-shock while the other lashes out with verbal abuse. The light grows dim and you’re running out of food, but still you press on in desperation for the treasure hidden in these deadly ruins. You need it because back in town, others are relying on you for medical treatment and therapy. You owe them at least that much after the numerous times they followed you into this same predicament. You take a deep breath and push open the heavy door that leads ahead, praying to any god that will listen that there isn’t anyone behind it.
When you run a horror movie review podcast, you watch a metric crapton of movies. Even with a newborn daughter slowing me down for a few months, we still watched and reviewed 128 movies last year. Some were awesome, others were…Exorcist II.
These are the top 10 movies we reviewed this year, not necessarily released this year (though you’ll find some familiar critical darlings on the list). The ratings are based on our capricious and inconsistent scores out of 10. Three hosts, three scores, a possible 30 points. In the case of a tie, I ranked them by a scientific method known as “which one I liked more.”
Movies discussed: Witchboard, Witchboard 2: The Devil’s Doorway, Witchboard III: The Possession, I Know What You Did Last Summer, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, Good Samaritan (short)
We’re back after our long winter’s nap with discussions of the Witchboard and I Know What You Did Last Summer trilogies. Because we love you all more than we love our free time. Plus we talk about our plans for the podcast moving forward. Take a listen!
Ooh! Also, we have a Patreon page now! If you are so inclined, go check it out and throw a little coin our way.
Next weeks assignments:
Hey Hot Doggies! While we remain on our brief winter hiatus, you could listen to this episode of the Does a Decade Matter? podcast, where Matt is the guest and the movie being discussed is Gremlins! How much more Christmasy can you get? We’ll be back soon, in the meantime, take care of yourselves and have a happy holiday season!
Movies discussed: Elves, Lucky Stiff, Silent Night, Deadly Night, Bad Guy #2 (short)
Our trifecta of movies (that were nearly only available on YouTube) this week is . . . well . . . a bit brutal. To watch. Or think about. Or . . . admit exist. Look, we have a lot of fun talking about movies which we didn’t have a lot of fun watching!
ALSO, PAY ATTENTION TO A COUPLE ANNOUNCEMENTS! (Please? No one ever listens to us.)
But we want to listen to you! If you haven’t already, please take a moment to fill out our survey, we have big plans for the podcast starting in the new year, and your input is invaluable.
We are also taking a brief holiday hiatus to take care of family obligations and get our ducks in a row. We’ll be back on January 6th, with extra movies to make up for our terribly long absence.
THAT SAID, HERE ARE THE ASSIGNMENTS FOR THE NEXT EPISODE!!!!!!!:
