#93 might be our trippiest episode yet! It’s MIDSOMMAR with special guest Knives Monroe!

Posted on

 

Yeah! Trippin’ af!!!

Hello HYSTOphiles! We are so pleased to present to you #93, which features our good friend – filmmaker and podcaster extraordinaire Knives Monroe! Keith and I couldn’t wait to talk to Knives about this episode’s movie, Midsommar. It truly is one of the most unique horror movies to have come out in years…

Need I say more?

As you can guess, we had a LOT to say about this Ari Aster film, and none of us held back! Knives even warned me ahead of time that he was “coming in hot,” and he did not disappoint…

Not that hot…

Along with our film commentary we have a blast talking about what’s been entertaining us lately (OMG The Invisible Man is so great! Elizabeth Moss!), and Keith lets us know what movie he’s picking for the next episode.

We really do hope you join us, because we REALLY do want to know…

Episode #91 is infested with rats! It’s 1972’s rodent rodeo, BEN!

Posted on
Willard’s gone, but BEN lives on…

Greetings, HYSTOphiles! We’re back for #91 and it’s a 70’s celebration of teeth and fur! That’s right, we watched Ben, the 1972 sequel to the film Willard.

Yes. There’s plenty of this…

Keith and I were so happy to be joined by our good friend Shawna West, and we couldn’t talk about a horror movie from the 70’s without having Erin Casteneda along for the ride! We all had a such a great time discussing this film, and we managed to discuss the movie Willard as well!

A kiddie version of Willard? Maybe…

We also had a lot of fun talking about what is keeping us entertained lately, and Keith announces his choice for Episode #93! We hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…

#90 is surprisingly prescient…OUTBREAK!

Posted on
That damned monkey!

Greetings HYSTOphiles! It’s Episode #90, and it’s contagious! Without having any idea of what was about to happen in real life, Keith chose Outbreak, the 1995 film starring a murderer’s row of famous actors…listen to this roster: Rene Russo, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Spacey (ew), Cuba Gooding Jr., Donald Sutherland, Patrick Dempsey, AND Dustin Hoffman…

You know: the famous action star…

We are so happy that our friends Shawna West and Erin Casteneda were able to join us for this one! I promise: none of us had ANY idea how timely this episode was going to be while we were recording it (although Shawna gave us a tip on where to find that kind of info).

So, Shawna, where would one pick up one of these ensembles?

Oh, and we didn’t forget to chat about what is keeping us entertained lately, and I announce my choice for the next episode!

We had such a fun time talking together about this film. We hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…

Episode #89 Blood Fest! Featuring writer, director, and star OWEN EGERTON!

Posted on
Welcome, horror hounds!

Greetings,  HYSTOphiles! Welcome to Episode #89, and welcome to the joy that is BLOOD FEST!  I had forgotten that Keith and I actually saw this movie together back when it came out, but he was totally stoked about watching this love letter to horror fans again! We were especially excited to cover this movie because I also had the extreme pleasure of talking to the writer, director, and star of Blood Fest, Owen Egerton!

The man. The myth. The legend.

Owen is an author, a comedian, a scriptwriter, an actor, a director…geez, is there anything this guy can’t do?  I can’t even tell you how much fun it was talking to Owen; he shared so much great background info on the film, and we also talked a little about horror in general…

…but mostly, you know, Blood Fest…

Episode #88 has taken FLIGHT!

Posted on
Nope. Nothing wrong here.

HYSTOphiles! Get ready for FLIGHT, starring the amazing Denzel Washington and directed by the we’ve-already-talked-about-how-talented-he-is Robert Zemeckis! This 2012 film features some of the most harrowing flight scenes I’ve ever seen on film.

Fasten your seatbelts…

Keith picked this one, and it was not at all what I was expecting. I will go ahead and tell you: it’s a terrific film! Denzel Washington is fantastic as “Whip” (no surprise). John Goodman has a small part, but he steals every scene he’s in. So worth watching!

These two. Amazing…

As usual we also talk about what’s been keeping us entertained lately, and I announce my movie choice for the next episode! We hope you join us, because we really do want to know…

It’s time to have yourself a HYSTO little Christmas! It’s Episode #87, our 4th Annual Christmas Special!

Posted on
Merry Christmas!

Happy holidaze, HYSTOphiles! We’re back with our 4th Annual Christmas show! It was my turn to pick the movie so, instead of going my usual horror route, I decided to family-film it and make Keith watch one of my all-time favorite Hollywood musicals, Meet Me In St. Louis, starring the legendary Judy Garland!

And she never looked lovelier…

Keith is famously NOT a fan of musicals, but with Cabaret and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, I have been changing his mind, film by film. Except for Spice World, which he may never forgive me for…

Ooh! Spice World!

After we talk about the film, we let each other know, concerning movies we made each other watch, what at the top three and bottom choices, in our humble opinions. Keith really surprised me with his choices, but you’ll have to listen in to find out what that surprise was all about!

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

#86 – Apocalypto – aka Mel Gibson does Disney rated “R”…

Posted on

Welcome back, HYSTOphiles! We’re so glad to be back, and as we continue our journey through the holiday season we bring you this classic, heartwarming Christmas movie…JUST KIDDING!

Hey! You don ‘t have to get mad about it!

Keith’s pick this time is the 2006 Mel Gibson film Apocalypto. Definitely NOT a holiday classic, but definitely a DISNEY FILM (the last “R” rated film under the Disney moniker!). You’ll have to listen in to see what I thought about it. No spoilers here!

It’s the incredible origin story of Blue Man Group…

We also do our usual entertainment talk: what we’ve been watching lately and what movie we’ll cover next time for our Christmas show! We sure do hope that you join us, because we really do want to know…

BOO!

Hello HYSTOphiles! We are back with Episode #85, and it is creepy and a half, because we are covering the 1980 haunted house masterpiece The Changeling, starring George C. Scott…

The Man. The Myth. The Legend.

THE WHEELCHAIR SCENE! AUGH!

We also have a great deal of fun talking about what’s been keeping us entertained lately, and Keith announces his choice for Episode #86.
