  • Absolutely love this idea. Can't wait to listen!
  • Oh man I hated The Invitation sooo much. The only scary thing about it was my blood pressure while enduring this infuriatingly idiotic turd, I was really hoping for a clever twist to turn it around but ugh. 

    I saw The Descent back when it was in the theater and remember liking it quite a bit, need to rewatch. It Follows and Bone Tomahawk are also solid. Haven't seen the rest on that list yet, need to check some of them out this week.

    I don’t think any movie has ever scared me
    as much as The Descent. I’m claustrophobic and scared of the dark, all it needed was clowns and it would have hit the Dee-phobic trifecta.

  • Word of warning: Martyrs is not for the front of heart. It is one of the most fucked up, disturbing, and dark movies I’ve ever seen. I loved it, and A.Ron would hate it. I would definitely classify it as torture porn. That being said, if you have the fortitude to watch it, it will stick with you forever. 

    A.Ron, I’d recommend you stay away from this one until somebody (hopefully never) commissions it. I agree with the reviewer. I absolutely loved it, but never again.

  • THE ‘TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN’ IS THE SCARIEST “DOCUMENTARY” HORROR FILM OUT THERE. its pretty good

    I loved the Invitation! I thought the ratcheting suspense was great
  • Last thing: for It Follows, the director used some Kubrick-esque things to make the viewer feel uneasy. Similar to how the office in The Shining had windows and other things that shouldn’t be there, in It Follows, there’s weird things like the random futuristic cell phone thing that’s meant to add a sense of unease and confusion to the movie.

    That death in Bone Tomahawk will forever be burned into my memory.  :#

    [REC] is a great found-footage movie. Super claustrophobic and tense.

    It Comes At Night is also a solid post-apocalyptic movie. It went in a different direction than I thought it would, though.

    PLEEEAASE tell me you saw the UK version of The Descent and not the American. Because the ending of the US version is TRASH.

    The original ending is far more haunting and open for interpretation. Apparently, the US distributors thought the ending was too confusing and dark so they ask for it to be changed. You will know you got the right version if a birthday cake showed up at the end....

    Guess we saw the American version. It seemed pretty open for interpretation though...

  • ah man, this was great. Like, the A.Ron / Cecily casts are good enough on their own to be a foundation for a podcasting network. Not to diminish Jim or anything heh.

    I've seen many of the movies covered, but I'll have to check out the remainder.

    This podcast was highly enjoyable, so thanks y'all!

    I got horror movie blue balls last night 'cause my wife was like "let's rent Annabelle: Creation!", and I look at the clock, 10pm, and said "Hell yeah let's do it!"  But come to find out, even though Xfinity says "Rent Annabelle", when you click it, it's still only in the Buy phase.  So then we're scrolling through all these movies and couldn't get to anything to pop off on.  But I did see "They Look Like People", which was on the Buzzfeed list, and was intrigued by it the most.  If only the trailer told you a little more instead of absolutely nothing, then I would've done it.  The title makes me think of Donald Sutherland pointing with mouth agape or "It Follows" which I totally agree is one of the strongest horror flicks I've seen in the past few years.

    Movies I have in my queue now thanks to the podcast:
    • The Banshee Chapter (even with the maenad eyes. mk ultra stuff is fascinating & terrifying to me)
    • Bone Tomahawk (gotta see the ending everyone is teasing about)
    • 1922

    Movies I need to see after reading the Dadd's article:
    • They Look Like People 
    • It Comes At Night (hoping for a supernatural element)

    Movie on the Buzzfeed list I recommend:  As Above, So Below


    **edit** Also heads up:  "Audition" on that list for anyone who hasn't seen it...that movie is horrifying, but it is firmly in the torture pr0n genre.  So you've been warned.

    I listened but didn't write down Cecily's list, can you post? I think A.Ron's was on the synopsis.

    They Look Like People was really interesting for a low-budget psychological thriller. And It Comes At Night is a really good post-apocalyptic thriller (there’s a twist too)

  • Love love love The Descent! My sister showed it to me a few years after it came out and it was a breath of fresh air after all of the torture porn coming out in the mid 2000s. Can't wait to see more of the stuff on the list
  • With @cdrive I can recommend As Above, So Below. I wasn't really scared by it, but thought it was a good movie (better than I expected). 
  • Oh man I really hated As Above, So Below and I really wanted to like it. The premise is really cool but the whole thing felt so cheap and boring and ugly and poorly acted. If I remember right they actually filmed it in the catacombs which is cool but I thought it fell completely flat.

    I was excited to watch it because of it's alzheimer's theme, but then I watched the trailer and saw it was primarily found footage, which I feel like I'm a bit burned out on right now.  If you say it's really good we'll probably check it out sometime this week/weekend.

    If I want to be freaked out in horror I watch audition. Which I don't think I will ever do again, that's the only disc on my shelf I am scared of. :-)

    P.S: Oops, Cdrive beat me to it.

    @JoshTheBlack
    I somehow wasn't really shocked by Martyrs, I kind of checked out emotionally during the movie since it felt contrived in many ways. It's disturbing but it didn't really stay with me.

    A weird cannibal movie I really liked:

    Yea, the sub-genres been played out, but it’s still worth the watch imo. 

    Edit/addition: it also doesn’t have the typical frustrating character decisions that plague other found footage films

    There was no real tension to me, just ratcheting irritation because pretty much no one was acting like a real person and there was never any payoff/justification for it. 
  • Haven't listened to the podcast or saw if this was mentioned already but highly recommend people to watch Tucker and Dale vs Evil. It's excellent. It's not Super scary. It's has a bit of comedy to it but it's just a great watch. Especially around halloween

    When and if you have time between the million podcats you give us, you guys have to watch The Devil's Candy on Netflix. A shorter movie, with an awesome soundtrack, and a really cool Ethan Embry. It was surprising how awesome Ethan Embry was, and Otis from Walking Dead plays a big part.

    It's my number one horror movie I've seen this year.

    Yes yes yes! I loved the hell out of that movie! It's so very very good.

    I also wanted to recommend a comedy that's not really scary at all but it's about vampires so it KINDA fits the bill. What We Do In The Shadows. It's directed by Taika Waititi (Thor Ragnarok, Flight of the Concords) and it is EXCELLENT. It should still be on Amazon Prime and I seriously cannot recommend it enough. Don't look up anything about it. All you need to know is it is a documentary about vampires that live in New Zealand. You will not regret it!

    Also, @Cecily, maybe I missed it but what was the movie that literally scared you out of your seat? Was it your number one or something else?

  • Second @Murderbear on What We do in the Shadows. It was excellent.

  • It Follows was good but from what we see I thought the monster would be pretty easy to deal with. You just lure it into a place that a human couldn't get out of without help, right?

    It was The Descent.  The first time you see a monster it surprised me.  I was busy looking in the shadows and corners of the frames and wasn't prepared for the cell phone video spin scare.
