Episode 53 – Ultra-Love Dad vs. Murder Dad

Movies discussed: The Frighteners, Wishmaster, Drag Me to Hell

This week everybody C.H.U.D.’s out for Wishmaster, we finally figure out why Drag Me to Hell doesn’t quite work, and Josh doesn’t understand why The Frighteners is awesome.

Next weeks assignments: Horror movies! (Surprise! Seriously, there’s no theme here.)

The People Under the Stairs

Shocker

Pumpkinhead

Watch along with us if you like and we’ll see you next week.

  1. I swear that I check Netflix for the movies right when the blog post says what the next set is, and don’t see any of them, and when that new episode comes in, at least one of the movies is suddenly available to stream. Maybe it’s just me and my faulty memory, but I was pretty sure I had checked before, and The Frighteners wasn’t there.

    I also noticed that Netflix has every Friday the 13th except for the first two (of course) and maybe the remake, and it has all of the Hellraiser movies. Hellraiser 3 was kind of meh. Wish that they would add the Nightmare movies and those first 2 Friday ones.

  2. This post is here to prove that I actually checked Netflix for The People Under the Stairs, Shocker, and Pumpkinhead right when this episode came out, just in case Netflix suddenly has them available for streaming next week.

  3. “Now he’s Reese’s pieces.” I don’t laugh out loud at podcasts very often, but that one got me.

  4. I hadn’t seen Wishmaster before this, but it was pretty solid. I’m not sure i liked it enough to check out any sequels, though. 6.5/10

    I love Drag Me To Hell. I don’t mind watching her suffer the shit storm, because it all pays off in the end for me when she goes to the gypsy grave with the “screw it and you” attitude. In her head she wasn’t taking anymore shit and it was awesome. I agree that the ending was off. 8/10.

    I’m ashamed that the first time I saw The Frighteners was last week. 8.5/10.

    Good round of movies, gentlemen.

    • You should relaly be using Dunnflix.I know you guys liked Pacific Rim, have you ever thought about doing a Daikaiju theme week? I know the genera is mainly sci-fantasy but there are a few horror gems hiding in the genera. Off the top of my head the obvious picks would be original Gojira*, and Cloverfield. As for a third movie Here’s a brief list of a few candidates:Rodan (another clasic that’s streaming in relaly crappy quality on Netflix,)Dogera (a giant carbon eating Kaiju threatens diamond thieves, fun but not very horrory)The Host (the Korean monster movie not the recent release.)Wyvern (a scifi original that I enjoy about a dragon attacking the nineties show Norther Exposure )Night of the Lepus (Giant saber toothed rabbits)MegaPiranha (Sharknado’s grandfather)Godzilla King of the monsters (To compare with Goijira)* Note: Godzilla King of the Monsters is NOT the original Gojira. The distributor was afraid that an American audience would not watch subtitled movie so he edited the film to fit American tastes. An American protagonist (Raymond Bur) was spliced in and over 20 minutes of the film were deleted and some scenes were rearranged. The final product was a very different movie in plot and tone. Godzilla gave rise to 50 foot monster genera. Gojira is a classic piece of cinema.

      I could be down with a giant monster week. I love Cloverfield to death, I also really dig the host. So I would be way down with watching those 2 coupled with one from the list.

  6. Here is a short for you to check out… Penn Jillette, Adam Savage, Bill Moseley

    Heres a suggestion for you guys that loosely has a theme. Things that lurk underneath the skin. 1985’s The stuff, 1998’s The Faculty, and 1985’s Demons, or in its original title for Josh, Demoni.

    Man, I love the Faculty. It’s one I come back to every couple of years.

    • Yeah. I watched it again for the first time in a long time, and I was amazed at the number of people I recognized and enjoyed in other things.
