Episode #143 tells how Mom And Dad Save The World!

Hey there, HYSTOphiles! You’re just in time to witness the possible end of the world as we know it! Well, it WOULD be the end if it weren’t for the fact that Mom And Dad Save The World!

Really? THEY save the world?

Keith chose this 1992 sci-fi spoof which was directed by Greg Beeman. Mr. Beeman’s movie is pretty trippy…

Let it be known that we don’t recommend eating these…

Mr. Beeman has also had an incredible career in television, but he’s only made two actual feature films: this movie, and License To Drive, which was also one of Keith’s former picks for our show! (see HYSTO? Episode #52)

Besides the film, we also discuss what’s been entertaining us lately, and I get to tell Keith what his assignment is for our next episode! We really hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…

HYSTO? #142 – 1941’s Citizen Kane – With Knives Monroe!

CITIZEN KANE, Orson Welles, 1941

Greetings HYSTOphiles! Welcome to HYSTO? Episode #142, where I FINALLY get Keith to watch what is considered one of the greatest films of all time (if not THE greatest), Citizen Kane, written by, directed by, and starring a 25 year old Orson Welles.

Pretty amazing, Mr. Welles…

We were thrilled to finally talk about this movie, and even more excited that our good friend, fellow podcaster, and filmmaker Knives Monroe came along for the ride! Knives, Keith and I also talk about what’s been entertaining us lately (Don’t Look Up gets mentioned…again), and Keith lets me know what I will be watching for Episode #143 (hint: it’s a MAJOR change of pace from this film…).

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

He’s back!

Welcome to Episode #141, HYSTOphiles, where we talk about a movie that stars Edward Norton…again!

Yeah, Ed’s been here before…

The movie is 25th Hour, a Spike Lee Joint. Keith seems to have a thing for Mr. Norton because, well, the guy just keeps showing up…

Like I said…

Of course, besides Eddie N., we also talk about what has been entertaining us lately, and I let Keith know what movie he will be watching for Episode #142.

I’m not kidding. Keith just loves this guy…

#140 The Town That Dreaded Sundown – 1976 – with Erin Casteneda!

Welcome to HYSTO? Episode #140, where we discuss the 1976 film The Town That Dreaded Sundown!

Peek-a-boo!

We are so happy to be joined by our good friend and resident 70’s horror lover Erin Casteneda, who actually suggested this classic proto-slasher. The movie stars Ben Johnson and Dawn Wells…

Mary Ann escaped Gilligan’s Island for this?

Naturally we also talk about what’s been entertaining us lately, and Keith announces what’s in store for me in Episode #141. We hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…

Episode #139 – OUR 6TH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA! A Christmas Horror Story & Deadly Games aka Dial Code Santa Claus!

Welcome HYSTOphiles to Episode #139, our 6TH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA! We have a great international double-feature episode for you this year, and we were so glad that our good friend Shawna West joined us for the sleigh ride!

Keith’s choice is our first flick. A couple of episodes back he had me watch A Classic Horror Story, so this time around he chose the 2015 Canadian anthology film, A Christmas Horror Story.

I know Santa has to work hard this time of year, but geez!

This film features several Christmas themed stories, two of them including Krampus…

Whoa…

My holiday choice is the 1989 French holiday thriller Deadly Games aka Dial Code Santa Claus aka 36:15 code Père Noël aka Game Over aka Hide and Freak! It’s a film that has often been compared to Home Alone, but it features Santa Claus!

Ah, a classic Santa Claus! So kind, so loving…
…oops…spoke too soon…

Of course, we also talk about what’s been entertaining us lately (OMG Don’t Look Up! Such a great film!), and I let Keith know what’s in store for him in Episode #140. We really hope you join us for our Christmas movie party, because we really do want to know…

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

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).

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

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!

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

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…
