• Episode 05: Krampus & Gremlins; The Christmas Monster We Need vs the Monsters We Made

    We are opening the festive lids on this, our first-ever holiday episode! We take the time to ask the important questions like, how many family members are an acceptable number to sacrifice to the spirit of Christmas justice? As well as, why the hell do we give Speilberg and Dante a pass on the highly problematic script that is Gremlins? But most importantly, we talk about the things that all us horror lovers need to get through the dark months of winter; food, gore, and terrifying puppets.

  • Episode 01: The Witch & It Ch 1: A Specter Haunt New England

    We're opening the lids and picking apart our own home away from home, New England! We are talking about what makes the Northeast so unsettling. How our physical landscape is interconnected to the history of this place, and the ways that the unresolved and unacknowledged ghosts of the physical space haunt our mental landscape. From clashing views of the wolf as a cultural symbol to Christian imperialism and how migration plus an epidemic led to the story of Rhode Island’s own vampire Mercy Brown, it’s all covered in the first half of this episode. Then we dive into the Witch and It Chapter 1 as two movies in which New England plays a part as a driving force in the films. Woulds’t thou like butter with your popcorn?
