We're back! Joined by our good friend and fellow horror fan, Tony (@flirtaciousboi), we cover a provocative cross section of mid-2000s horror remakes. Starting with Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), then Jaume Collet-Serra's House of Wax (2005), and finish out with Alexandre Aja's extreme take on The Hills Have Eyes (2006).
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
No spoilers! We're talking about a new Christmas horror classic, this year's Better Watch Out. Directed by (honorary Australian) Chris Peckover and written by Peckover and Zack Kahn. Starring Olivia DeJonge, Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould, with supporting cast Patrick Warburton & Virginia Madsen.
Sean and Charles from Miskatonic Musings join us for a round of Gerald's Game(2017). Mike Flanagan (HUSH, Ouija: Origin of Evil, Oculus, etc.) directed the hell out of Stephen King's claustrophobic tale of bondage gone wrong starring Carla Gugino, Bruce Greenwood, and Carel Struycken.
When a home is so much more, we explore the theme of Haunted Houses in this Part 1 with Stuart Rosenberg's THE AMITYVILLE HORROR (1979) and the 2006 animated MONSTER HOUSE.
In our return visit to Haunted Houses, we arrive at The Overlook Hotel, the site of Stephen King's THE SHINING. Adapted by Diane Johnson and Stanley Kubrick, the 1980 film starring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall is a different animal entirely. We talk shared brilliance and wild differences.
It's finally here! We put our heads together, debated and negotiated to arrive at our official
Top 25 Horror Movies. Also joining us people of the New York Horror Meetup to share their favorites and best of the genre. Do check us out at https://www.meetup.com/nychorror/

We're back from our deep dive into J Horror (thanks again, Charles!) for a review of The Conjuring 2. We've got mixed feelings about James Wan's (of Saw, Insidious, and Furious 7 fame) return to the adventures of Ed & Lorraine Warren. This time they investigate the famous Enfield Haunting.
