Episode #110 – ONE CUT OF THE DEAD – featuring special guest Knives Monroe!

Posted on

Salutations, HYSTOphiles! Welcome to HYSTO? Episode #110, featuring the 2017 Japanese zombie comedy One Cut Of The Dead, from director Shinichiro Ueda!

NOT Shinichiro Ueda, but actor Takayuki Hamatsu playing the director…

Joining us for the cinematic journey is one of our favorites special guests, podcaster and filmmaker Knives Monroe!

NOT Knives Monroe, but but actor Takayuki Hamatsu playing the director…

I was so excited to have Knives join us for this one, because this movie is such a love letter to filmmaking. This movie is so unique! You should definitely see it without knowing too much about it…

I don’t want to reveal too much. Like how this character is able to keep standing up with an axe embedded in her head…

Along the way we have a great time talking about what’s been entertaining us lately (Borat, anyone?), and Keith reveals his pick for me to watch for episode #111, which is directed by a very famous person…

No, it’s not him…

We hope you all join us for this movie party, because we really do want to know…

#109 is our 5th Annual Very Special Halloween Special! Featuring special guest Erin Casteneda! Wait Until Dark & Terrifier!

Posted on

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Hello HYSTOphiles, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!  It’s episode #109, and it’s our 5th Annual Very Special Halloween Special, with special guest and 70’s Horror Aficionado Erin Casteneda and a very special double-feature!

Our first feature is not necessarily Halloween-themed, but it certainly is full of suspense…it’s 1967’s Wait Until Dark, starring the amazing Audrey Hepburn.

Audrey! Audrey? Hmm. I guess she can’t see me…

Erin suggested this one, and I couldn’t agree quickly enough! I was sure that this would be the first movie Keith had ever seen Audrey Hepburn in, and I was right! What did he think? You know how to find out!

Next we went to Keith’s choice, which was much more Halloween- themed. We all enjoyed talking about 2016’s Terrifier, one of the most brutal slashers to come out in years…so of course we all loved it!

 

OMG! I LOVE THAT MOVIE!

This one is definitely for Horror Hounds only, but it’s truly a movie a that brings Halloween to life…or death! We had a great time talking about it…

Everybody’s having a good time! Except Art the Clown…for now…

After that I treat Erin and Keith to a Pop Horror Movie Quiz…and I tell Keith about the cool movie we’ll be talking about next time with another special guest…and you’ll have to listen in to find out who it is!

We really hope you join us for this Halloween Movie Celebration, because we really do want to know…

DO YOU WANNA PARTY?!? It’s The Return Of The Living Dead with special guest Latrice Carter!

Posted on

Happy Halloween season, HYSTOphiles! We are back with Episode #108, and are boy are we excited about this one! Not only are we covering a FANTASTIC horror movie, but joining us for the fun is our good friend Latrice Carter from the Horror Movie Warriors podcast! Latrice is a HUGE fan of 80’s horror, so she was the perfect guest to join us to talk about this one: 1985’s The Return Of The Living Dead!

Yeah, I’d say that’s pretty 80’s alright…

Latrice is a fountain of info/opinions on 80’s horror, and she shares it all with us! 🙂 I don’t usually reveal this here, but we all absolutely loved this movie, and we had a blast talking about this it together.

See how much fun everyone is having?

Along the way we, of course, discuss what’s been entertaining us lately, and we also announce the TWO films we’ll be covering on our 5th Annual Very Special Halloween Special (and we announce who our guest will be as well!).

We hope you join us for our little movie party, because we really do want to know…

Episode #107 isn’t heavy, but it’s full of HEAVYWEIGHTS!

Posted on

It’s time for #107, HYSTOphiles, and this time we aren’t messing around: we brought some HEAVYWEIGHTS! It’s the 1995 film Heavyweights! The film stars Aaron Schwartz, Kenan Thompson, and Shaun Weiss, who all starred in at least one of the three Mighty Ducks movies…

Also starring Ben Stiller as the heavy, but not a Heavyweight…

This was Keith’s choice, and it’s one from his childhood. Did it hold up for him? And, for that matter, what did I think of it? You’ll have to listen in to find out.

Heh. Heh. Heh. Yeah…

Of course we also talk about what’s been entertaining us lately, and I announce our movie for the next episode AND I also announce our special guest for next time (hint: she’s a Horror Movie Warrior)!

We hope you join us for our movie party, because we really do want to know…

Episode #105 is full of “Needful Things”

Posted on

It’s #105, HYSTOphiles, and we’re shopping for some Needful Things, the 1993 film based on the hit novel by Stephen King, and starring Max Von Sydow.

Yep. The guy who played Ming in Flash Gordon is the bad buy again…

While I’ve heard of this film for years, I’ve never seen it before now, and the only way to hear what I thought (and what Keith thought all these years later) is to listen in!

…and Max knows how to get you to watch…

Of course we also discuss what’s been entertaining us lately, and I announce what movie is in store for #106 next time.

We hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…

Episode #104 is our 4TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION! Bad Boys and Wanted! With special guest Paul Kastava!

Posted on

Hello HYSTOphiles, and welcome to our 4th Anniversary Special! And that’s not all: our special guest this time around is none other than my original co-host, Paul Kastava! Yes, direct from Brooklyn, NY, Paul joins us to talk about two movies and to celebrate four years of doing just that!

First movie up is Paul’s choice: 1983’s Bad Boys, starring Sean Penn…

OMG! It’s Mr. Madonna!

It’s a gritty, low-down story of some young punks thinking that crime is the way to success and happiness…

Like I said…

After that we discuss my choice, 2008’s Wanted, starring James McAvoy and some actress named Angelina Jolie…

“Don’t pretend you don’t know who I am!”

Okay, girl! Chill! We also have a GREAT time catching up and talking about what’s been entertaining us lately, and Keith drops his movie for the next episode as we venture in to year number five!

We really hope you join our anniversary movie party, because we really do want to know…

Posted on
Relax and stay awhile!

Greetings, HYSTOphiles! We’re back with another double feature and another special guest! Our first flick for #103 is The Kite RunnerKeith chose this 2007 film by director Marc Forster, which is based on the best-selling book of the same name…

It says here that Keith wasn’t trying to torture us with this movie, but I don’t know… 

After that we discuss 1999’s Robert Altman film Cookie’s Fortune. Joining us for the discussion is the person who recommended this movie to us, our good friend Cassy Weyandt! It’s shocking to me that I’ve never seen this movie before, and I couldn’t wait to chat about it with Cass and Keith!

Chat about it and play Scrabble, that is…

Of course we do all the usual stuff that we love to do: we talk about what’s been entertaining us lately, and I announce what movies we will be covering on episode #104, which just happens to be our FOURTH ANNIVERSARY EPISODE! We also announce who our special guest will be for that episode, and it’s definitely an announcement worth tuning in for!

We really hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…

Episode #102! So, here’s The Thing…TWICE!

Posted on

Welcome, HYSTOphiles! We are up to Episode #102, and this time, along with our special guest Shawna West, we are discussing two versions of the same story: 1951’s The Thing From Another World, and 1982’s John Carpenter classic The Thing.

Did I hear my name?

The first version of the film is a true classic, and it’s famous for a couple of iconic images…

Yep. That’s one of them…

The 1982 version is also famous for some iconic moments…

Yep. That’s one of them…

We had so much fun comparing the two films we forgot to mention that there was a prequel in 2011 (I didn’t really care for that one, but that’s my opinion).

Along the way we talk about what’s been entertaining us lately and, of course, Keith tells me what movie I’m assigned to watch for Episode #103. We really hope you join us for this movie party, because we really do want to know…
