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…)

Episode #157 takes us to Belfast

Welcome to Episode #157, HYSTO-philes! This time around we are traveling to Ireland in the year 1969 to see the 2021 film by Kenneth Branagh, Belfast.

Our good friend Kellie Arnold recommended this one to me a long time ago, so I knew she had to come along with us for this cinematic trip. We both were pretty sure Keith would like the film, but you never know how a movie will affect someone…so you’ll have to tune in to find out his reaction!

Speaking of reacting to a film…

Of course we discuss what’s been entertaining us lately, and I also let Keith know what movie is in store for him next time! (Hint: Swedish Vampire Horror!) 

Swedish? Vampire? Hmmm…

This fictionalized retelling of the the final days of Frankenstein director James Whale is remarkable in its style and the performances of its actors…

The film stars Lynn Redgrave, Brendan Fraser, and Ian McKellen as James Whale…

Ian who?
