#136 The Blob vs. The Blob! With Special Guest Shawna West!

Posted on

Welcome to Episode #136 – The Blob (1958) vs.The Blob (1988)!

Take that, Blob!

We had such a great time talking about these two films, especially because we were joined by our good friend Shawna West, who has helped us compare 80’s remakes of 50’s horror films a few times before…

Remember this one?

Shawna and Keith and I had so much fun comparing these two superb movies…and you can join in the fun too!

Fun!

As always we also discuss what has been entertaining us lately (The Candyman podcast! Right, Shawna?) and Keith announces my movie assignment for Episode #137 (hint: he’s staying in the horror zone).

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

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, HYSTOphiles! Welcome to Episode #135, our 6TH ANNUAL VERY SPECIAL HALLOWEEN SPECIAL!

In honor of the holiday, we are celebrating two films that are 100% HALLOWEEN THEMED. First up is my choice, the 1988 classic Night Of The Demons!

Linnea is ready…are you?

We are especially thrilled to have two fantastic guests join us for this discussion/party! Repeat guest and host of the podcast Horror Movie Warriors AND the queen of 80’s horror, Latrice Carter joins us for a movie date that we made long ago. Also joining us is fellow Horror Movie Warrior Ingrid Hubert! The four of us had a wonderful time talking about Angela’s epic Halloween Party!

So, Keith, my husband Rick, Kellie Arnold, and Cass Weyandt and I went to see the new installment in the Halloween franchise: Halloween KIlls. Just like back in 2018 when the new Halloween came out, Keith chose to make this new chapter his choice for the show!

He’s baaaaaaaaaaack!

Of course this movie features the incredible Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis.

This is NOT how she looks in the movie, but I just had to share this pic of her looking FABULOUS…

Our good friend Kellie Arnold joins us to discuss Part Two of this new Michael Meyers trilogy, and boy did we have fun dissecting this one!

Of course we also talk about what’s been entertaining lately (LOTS of horror!), and I let Keith know what’s in store for him when we record Episode #136!

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

Episode #134 – PSYCHO! with special guests Elle & Brent Garrison!

Posted on

Welcome back, HYSTOphiles! We’re here with Episode #134, and Keith and I are super excited about this one! This one is all about Alfred Hitchcock‘s 1960 horror/thriller masterpiece Psycho! It features Janet Leigh and, in one of the most iconic horror performances (or any other kind of movie) in movie history, Anthony Perkins.

Oh yeah. I’m really good in this…

We’re also excited to have two new special guests: we had a blast talking with Elle & Brent Garrison! This was their first visit, but definitely not their last!

Guests of HYSTO stay at the fabulous Bates Motel!

The four of us had a great time sharing stories about this historic film. We also shared what is entertaining us lately, and Keith and I announce our choices for Episode #135: Our 6th Annual Very Special Halloween Special! We hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…

Episode #132 – A Letter To Three Wives – with good friend Kellie Arnold!

Posted on

We are back for #132 with a movie that I have wanted us to talk about ever since we started this show: it’s 1949’s A Letter To Three Wives, written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz (who, you may remember, wrote and directed All About Eve one year later).

The Three Wives: angst never looked so glam…

Oh!And along for the ride is our good friend Kellie Arnold! We had a great time talking about this movie! We hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…

Episode #131 – The Man In The Moon – aka Reese Witherspoon slays in her first film role!

Posted on

Greetings HYSTOphiles! Welcome to Episode #131, where we discuss the film where Reese Witherspoon absolutely shines in her screen debut! It’s Keith’s choice: 1991’s The Man In The Moon.

She shines! She also swims…

I usually don’t show my hand when I post here, but this movie was so wonderful I just can’t hide how much I enjoyed it!

I’ll say it again: she shines!

Naturally we also talk about what’s been entertaining us lately, and I let Keith know what movie he’ll be watching next time.

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

#130 is full of REVENGE! “For Love Of The Game” & “Zaat”…CINEMA TORTURE IS BACK!

Posted on

Who’s Zaat?

Welcome to HYSTO? Episode #130! This time around Keith and I are the victims, while our good friends Shawna West and Paul Kastava get their Cinematic Revenge! Yes, they have each chosen a movie that they are SURE is going to torture us both!

First up is Paul’s choice, the Kevin Costner baseball flick from 1999, For Love Of The Game.

I mean, Kevin Costner in a baseball movie? Really? Who would have thought?!?!

Paul knows that the easiest way to torture me is to make watch a sports-themed movie, but will this movie equally cause sports-fan Keith anguish? We’ll see…

After that, we tackle Shawna’s pick, the 1971 creature feature extraordinaire, Blood Waters Of Dr. Z, aka Legend of the Zaat Monster, aka Hydra, aka Attack Of The Swamp Creatures, aka ZAAT!

What’s Zaat?

As you can tell by the above photos of Zaat, the filmmakers spared no expense when filming this magical monster movie. I assure you that every bit of that $1.98 is up on that screen!

Naturally we all share what has been entertaining us lately, and Keith announces what movie he has in store for me for episode #131…AFTER Keith and I place our votes for which film was the most torturous on this episode.

We really had a lot fun recording this one, and we really do hope you join our movie party because we really do want to know…

Episode #129 celebrates our 5th Anniversary! Higher Learning & Amèlie!

Posted on

Greetings HYSTOphiles, and welcome to our 5th Anniversary Celebration! Helping us celebrate is our good friend (and our good luck charm) Kellie Arnold! Keith and I, once again, have chosen two movies that couldn’t be more different from each other.

First up is Keith’s choice: the John Singleton film Higher Learning, from 1995. This movie stars so many people that are famous now…it’s insane!

Laurence Fishburne, Omar Epps, and Ice Cube are just the tip of the “ice” berg…ha ha…

My choice is the 2001 French masterpiece Amèlie. Kellie is joining us because this is her absolute favorite movie of all time!

Starring the unbelievably charming Audrey Tautou…

Of course we also talk about what has been entertaining us lately, then Keith and Kellie and I talk about what we think are the best and worst movies that we have covered over the last five years!

We hope you join us for our 5th Anniversary celebration, because we really do want to know…

Episode #128 – where it’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature! “Piranha” & “White Water Summer” with guest Erin Casteneda!

Posted on

Welcome to #128, HYSTOphiles! We’re having hot fun in the summertime, and some weird times on the water! Our two movies include a 1978 summertime classic (and my choice) Piranha, helmed by Gremlins director Joe Dante. This is a movie that you can definitely judge by its trailer…

Yep. Pretty up-front…

Then we talk about Keith’s pick: a film from 1987 called White Water Summer starring Kevin Bacon and Sean Astin. This is a movie that you can NOT judge by its trailer…

It’s a fun, summer romp movie for kids…NOT!!!

Along for the ride is our good friend and 70’s horror movie enthusiast Erin Casteneda! She joins in as we talk about what’s been entertaining us lately, and Keith and I announce what movies we will be talking about next time when we celebrate our 5th Anniversary!!! We hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…
