Welcome, HYSTOphiles! In Episode #167 we are celebrating the comedy acting of the ever-famous Marilyn Monroe, more precisely two comedies that she made in the year 1953 that are two of my FAVORITE MOVIES OF ALL TIME!!! And joining us for the fun is our dear friend Kellie Arnold!

Marilyn was an amazing comedian, and these two films really shine a light on that talent!

First up is Gentlemen Prefer Blondeswhich also stars the fabulous Jane Russell!

No, really! You’re both in this!

To keep the fun going we also discuss Marilyn’s next film, How To Marry A Millionaire! This one stars Marilyn, Lauren Bacall, and Betty Grable!

A Millionaire Murderer’s Row…

Add to that us all talking about what’s keeping us entertained lately, and Keith telling me what’s in store for me next time around, and we have quite the movie party! We really hope you join us because we really do want to know…

Happy New Year, HYSTO-philes! Welcome to Episode #166! Keith chose our movie this time around, and his pick was 2008’s Role Models, starring Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott!

Paul and Seann, not looking so sure about their choice this time. (Yes, we see you back there, Keegan-Michael Key…)

I, of course, had never seen this film, so Keith was anxious to see what I thought…and you’ll have to listen to find out!

Naturally we also discuss what’s been entertaining us lately, and I let Keith know what iconic Hollywood actress’ work we will be watching for our next episode. (HINT: 1953)

#165 Our 7th Annual Christmas Special! Santa Claus Conquers The Martians & Ugly Sweater Party!

Merry Christmas!

Seasons greetings (a bit late), HYSTOphiles! Welcome to our 7th Annual Christmas Special! This year set Keith up with two films from to very different time periods, but they both celebrate the holiday in their own special way!

First up on the menu is the 1964 sci-fi Xmas fest Santa Claus Conquers The Martians!

Is Santa using kung-fu here?

This movie features the first screen appearance of Pia Zadora, so of course we had to invite Shawna West to join us to discuss this Xmas Xlassic!

There’s Pia on the left. Can you feel her star power?

Our 2nd film is 2018’s Ugly Sweater Party!

So Christmas-sy!

Our good friend Kellie Arnold joins us for this holiday romp at a summer camp (don’t ask…).

Naturally we also talk about what’s been entertaining us lately, and Keith let’s me know what movie I’ll be watching for Episode #166!

We hope you don your gay apparel and join our movie party, ’cause we really do want to know…

Episode #162 has us going to Paris, France to visit the Moulin Rouge! Because we Can Can Can!

…because we can can can!

Bonjour, HYSTOphiles! Welcome to Episode #162! This time around I had Keith watch the 2001 Baz Luhrmann film Moulin Rouge! 

And the gang’s all here!

I’ve wanted Keith to see this movie ever since he made me watch The Greatest Showman. I really felt like these two movies have a lot in common, and I wanted to see how Keith felt about it…

Well, this is how I felt about it…

We also discuss what’s been entertaining us lately (LOTS of HORROR), and I let Keith know what’s in store for Episode #163.

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

Episode #161 – our 7th ANNUAL HALLOWEEN SPECIAL! With Latrice Carter & Kellie Arnold!

Happy Halloween!

Welcome HYSTOphiles! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And, because of that, we have another amazing Halloween Special for your enjoyment! We have a double-feature again this time around, and the BEST guests to talk about them! Our first film is The Midnight Hour, a 1985 TV movie that was inspired by Michael Jackson’s video Thriller.

Yeah, so I was in this video you might have seen. LOTS of zombies…

Latrice Carter joins us for this one, because it’s Halloween, and this is an 80’s movie! (Oh yeah: we also just LOVE when we get to hang with her!)

Latrice and I hanging out…

Our second feature is a film from 2004. It’s Hellbent, a very queer slasher flick!

The “queer eye” has it…

Our dear friend (& good luck charm!) Kellie Arnold joins us for this one, and I was proud to be able to tell her that no animals were harmed making this film. PLUS: the killer is way hot…

WAY hot…

Keith and I also talk about what’s been entertaining us lately, and all four of us talk about what we watch every year in celebration of Halloween!

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

Episode #160 brings us back to The Bates Motel…it’s Psycho II!

He’s baaaaaaaaaaaaack!

HYSTO? #160 is all about the 1983 sequel to Psycho…it’s Psycho II, starring none other than the original Norman Bates, Mr. Anthony Perkins!

Looking as sane as ever…

And talk about timing! Exactly one year after they joined us to talk about the 1960 classic Psycho, Elle & Brent Garrison are back with us again to talk about the sequel! We all definitely noticed the differences between the original film and this update on the story…

…but, thankfully, some things never change…

We also talk about what’s been entertaining us lately, AND we announce what movies will be on our double-feature, super special 7th Annual Halloween Special!!! We hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…

We had a lot of fun talking about this film. Did I like it? Do I recommend it? You know how to find out!

Okay, no movie is that bad…

We also share what’s been entertaining us lately, and I let Keith know what sequel to a famous movie we will cover for Episode #160!

Episode #158 takes us to Sweden, where we “Let The Right One In”

Welcome back, HYSTO-philes! We are back with Episode #158, which takes us to Sweden for the 2008 film Let The Right One In

The Right One? Would that be me?

Our good friend Shawna West asked me recently it I had seen this movie, and it reminded me of HOW MUCH I LOVE it! So, naturally, we invited her to come talk about it on the show!

And it’s such a sweet movie…sort of…

We had so much fun making Keith watch this movie! We really thought he would love it as much as we did. Did he? Well, you know how to find out!

I promise you: this was NOT his reaction…

Of course you know we’re also going to talk about what’s been entertaining us lately, and Keith lets me know what movie I’m watching for the next episode! HINT: it’s a Stephen King adaptation! (Yeah, I know; that doesn’t narrow it down much…)

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