Episode #177 – ALLIGATOR! – 1980

Heya, HYSTOphiles! It’s summer, and for me that means watching movies inspired by JAWS! And, you know, if we’re even¬†mentioning¬†that genre we HAVE to invite our good friend Erin Casteneda along for the ride!

And what a ride!

And the movie we covered is ALLIGATOR! The 1980 creature feature written by John Sayles, who also wrote the JAWS inspired film PIRANHA!

Such a ride!

Erin and Keith and I had so much fun talking about this 80’s blast! So much so that, I can’t even hide how we all feel about this movie: WE ALL LOVE IT!!!

Someone’s got the munchies!

And, of course, we also talk about what has been entertaining us lately (Keith jumps on the French Horror Wagon!). And, I tell Keith what’s in store for him the next time around. (Hint: it’s Basic, and it’s very Instinctive…)

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

Episode #176 – Whiplash – 2014 – by Damien Chazelle

Welcome to Episode #176, HYSTOphiles! We are jazzing things up this time around the 2014 Damien Chazelle film Whiplash! When Keith first said we would be discussing this one I had mixed feelings: I really like the work of both the director and actor J.K. Simmons, but the clips I have seen from this film didn’t have me drum-rolling to see it…

Ba Dum, Tsh…

Naturally we both share what’s been keeping us entertained lately, and (with great joy) I tell Keith what is store for him next time around in Episode #177 (Hint: you’re Bound to be surprised!)

(UPDATE: we are going to put a hold on Bound and save it for another, special episode. Our next film, instead, will be the JAWS inspired ALLIGATOR! With Special guest Erin Casteneda!)

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

Welcome all HYSTOphiles to Episode #169! We go back to the 70’s again with the 1974 thriller The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane…starring a VERY young Jodie Foster!

Only 13 and already a shining star…

As I said, it’s a 70’s thriller, so you know our good friend Erin Casteneda is along for the ride! Erin also gives us her take on Skinamarink, which you will remember we discussed in Episode #168.

Thanks to Skinamarink I’m going to have to figure out how to recreate this in our house for next Halloween…

HYSTO? #168 – TWO UNANNOUNCED FILMS! “Skinamarink” & “21”

It’s for you…

Heya HYSTOphiles! Well, we were supposed to discuss the film “Jack The Bear” on this episode, but we couldn’t find any place to watch it! So, Keith decided on the 2008 film “21,” starring a creature we have rechristened with the name Kevin “Puke” Spacey. (oh, you know why…).

Puke…

Before that we discuss a film that we have both been obsessed with lately. It’s 2022’s indie horror film “Skinamarink.”

I could try to explain why this photo is so disturbing, but you just need to see the film…

Add to this our usual discussion of what’s been entertaining us latelly (LOVE you, Horrorweekly!), and I let Keith know what forgotten 70’s film he will be watching for next time (with a special guest!). We hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…
