This week we pay tribute to Donald Sutherland, who recently passed away, with the 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Along with a look at Sutherland's performance, career and uncharacteristic magnetism, we discussed why this story has resonated with audiences throughout several generations.

A typical haunted-house story gets a Satanic twist in this lackluster 70's entry that almost feels like a goofy made-for-TV movie. So naturally, although we were hoping for much better, we had a blast picking it apart and groaning.

Touted by many as a "solid zombie movie" and reminiscent of Fulci's far-better Zombi 2, we found it...well, a little dull and tedious. With one very notable exception...

We wrap up Werewolf Month with a listener suggestion. 2015's Howl is kind of like a Train To Busan, but with werewolves in the dead of night in the English countryside. A solid film to end a solid four-week overview of the werewolf genre. Hope you've enjoyed Werewolf month, sponsored by Manscaped!

Jammed full of action and gunfire, this Neil Marshall debut did remind us a wee bit of Predator. We just wish we had enjoyed this one as much as we expected to. Hopefully you'll enjoy this episode though!

Opinions are as mixed as the message in this artsy oddity based on a Whitley Streiber novel and starring a host of famous actors, rounded off by none other than Albert Finney, Gregory Hines and perennial Two-Guys Favorite, Tom Noonan.

We continue Werewolf Month with the Joe Dante classic, The Howling. Chock full of stars, this one is credited with re-inventing the werewolf genre for the modern audience and making lycanthropy as sexy as vampires.

Our first film is John Landis' classic horror-comedy about two backpackers in the English countryside who get attacked by a werewolf. Hilarity ensues as the dead one comes revisits his friend to warn him that he is the last living werewolf in this line of werewolves and really ought to kill himself to save humanity. This film is most notorious for having perhaps the best werewolf transformation sequence in the history of filmmaking...

How far can you go with the concept of possessed water? We take a deep dive into this Blumhouse / James Wan production to find out!

Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton star in this Stewart Gordon directed special makeup effects extravaganza! This 80s horror flick is simple yet highly entertaining - with a smorgasbord of slimy body horror practical effects that kept our mouths agape. A young Barbara Crampton in bondage gear didn't hurt either...

You guys chose Stephen King's sole directorial effort, Maximum Overdrive, for us to pick apart. From noisy, smoke-belching cars to laugh-out-loud dialogue and hilariously improbable situations, there's a lot to marvel at and yuk it up over. Classic rock band AC/DC adds to the fun of this wildly over-the-top cult classic.

With the new rules and lore established in this movie - now there are THREE books of the dead? - we can plan to see a lot more of this franchise, just as Bruce Campbell has promised. And if they're all as fun, intense, and even genuinely heart-wrenching as this one, we're in for one wild Deadite ride, folks.

Perhaps best known for playing Apollo Creed opposite Stallone in the Rocky franchise, Carl Weathers also had a prominent run in another big-strong-hulking-guy 80s flick opposite Schwarzenegger. In each, he more than holds his own. Thanks to Josh for the suggestion!

Never released to theaters, this 2017 installment struck a perfect tone between humor and horror, which creative director and writer Don Mancini had been refining and reinventing over decades of our favorite possessed killer doll. Not only is it a modern and brutal continuation of Chucky and Andy's adventures, it also set up the television series with lots of material to continue.

After 5 films of an increasingly wacky, campy and jokey premise, this one managed to deftly bring Chucky back to his horror roots, with a more spooky edge, stylized visuals, and dark themes.

Seed of Chucky is the most divisive of all the Child's Play films thus far. It was also the last to be released in theaters. This film leans so heavily into camp that even John Waters has a prominent role in it. Perhaps more comedy than horror, Chucky and Tiff's son from the tail-end of the first film embarks on a journey of self-discovery and is horrified by his parents. But the REAL star of the show is Jennifer Tilly playing hers...

We continue our month of Chucky by skipping over part 3 and heading straight to the fourth in the series, which marks a distinct change in tone and style. It's also missing Andy for the first time, but we hardly miss him because we love Jennifer Tilly so much! Leaning more heavily into the humor but keeping its horror vibe, it turned out to be a great new direction from Chucky's 80's slasher roots.

Welcome to Chucky Month! It's a full-month of crawling our way through the Child's Play franchise, at the request of our Loyal Patrons. Since we've already covered the first film in a previous episode, we start things off at part 2, wherein Andy continues to be terrorized by grown killer in a doll's body. And Charles Lee Ray really don't wanna be in there no mo'.

Somewhat reminiscent of the classic painting with which it shares its title, American Gothic is chock-full of excellent actors acting excellently, even though the movie itself is rather silly. We enjoyed talking about it. Thanks, Gary, for the request!

Our second tribute episode this year is a two-fer: Frances Sternhagen and Andre Braugher both left us in the last few months, and they left us two fantastic performances in an utterly chilling Frank Darabont horror film, adapted from a Stephen King novella. Brilliant performances abound in this tale of a supermarket full of customers who fight for survival in the midst of a mysterious mist inhabited by otherworldly creatures. Man, ...
