Step right up, step right up! Climb aboard for the ride of your life...or possibly the end of your life.

This Halloween, I'm inviting you to spend the night with me in TOBE HOOPER's 1981 creepy carnival monster mashup, THE FUNHOUSE.

When an evening at the carnival proves neither thrilling nor chilling enough, Amy and her friends get the bright idea to have an impromptu overnight smooch-n-grope party in the creepy funhouse. ...

Beyond the door of THE NIGHTMARE CLOSET waiting to make me confront my childhood terrors lies... BEYOND THE DOOR from 1974 (aka CHI SEI?)

In this utterly shameless ripoff of both THE EXORCIST and ROSEMARY'S BABY, Jessica's expectancy isn't going as expected, because her future bundle of joy has already been earmarked by Satan to be his emissary of evil on Earth.

Prepare yourself for:

  • projectile vomiting
  • spinning heads

    Season Twelve kicks off with some holy terror as we discuss the last temptation of SAINT MAUD (2019).

    Here to help me dodge the fire and brimstone and possibly provoke the wrath of God are my very special guests KASEY LOMAN, the creative mind behind EVILGOODS DESIGN and the FEMMES OF FRIGHT collection, and NICOLE DAVIS, co-host of MOVIE GO ROUND.

    In SAINT MAUD, a rather unstable nurse who has had a recent religious conversion is assi...

    "I Do Not Care For Hunky Boys...Or do I???"

    July 26th marks eleven years since ScreamQueenz first hit the airwaves.

    Celebrate this dubious milestone and the end of this season with a sci-fi horror comedy love letter to the '80s & '90s that's like MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS had a baby with MY GIRL.

    And that baby smoked a lot of crack.

    Like, a LOT of crack!

    That movie is PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN.

    "My God...They're All Mad."

    For the first time in a long time, the door of THE NIGHTMARE CLOSET is about to slowly swing open once again and unleash another movie that completely traumatized me when I saw it as a child.

    This time, the evil let loose upon the world is BROTHERHOOD OF SATAN (1971).

    The tiny town of Hillsboro finds itself under attack by mysterious unknown forces. Unable to leave, entire families are slaughte...

    Our PRIDE MONTH celebration continues with a look at the truly unusual, blood-streaked 1981 psychological thriller BUTCHER, BAKER, NIGHTMARE MAKER aka NIGHT WARNING.

    Billy, an orphaned teenager, finds himself being dominated by his increasingly unhinged Aunt Sheryl who's hell-bent on keeping him with her...at all costs.

    Despite its deceptively simple plot, BBNM is a remarkably layered film featuring a bravura performance from SU...

    "Everything's a movie to me..."

    Kick off your Pride Month festivities with this deep dive into the movie that was meta before meta was cool, the moviehouse movie-within-a-movie massacre motion picture POPCORN from 1991.

    Tucked inside all the Grand Guignol fun, we'll be putting a special focus on the closeted life and tragic death of the film's star, TOM VILLARD.

    "He's family..."

    Our salute to CANADIAN HORROR movies continues with a chat about the deeply unsettling (and tragically out-of-print at this time) psychosexual thriller, PIN from 1988.

    A young man develops an unhealthy attachment to Pin, his father's medical anatomy doll and reigns terror upon anyone who threatens his fractured reality.

    To help me navigate this dark and twisted path, I am delighted to have MAYA MURPHY ...

    "Get Ready for the Violence of the Lambs..."

    It is a fact that there are more sheep in New Zealand.

    This tidbit of truth makes the New Zealand-based horror-comedy BLACK SHEEP all the more delicious!

    Thanks to brilliant gooey, over-the-top gore and monster effects, the seemingly stupid concept of "killer sheep" becomes genuinely terrifying. Add a dryly hilarious script to balance out the bloodshed, and you've got o...

    "Why does everything have to be so unnecessarily gross?!?"

    For our Salute to Irish Horror, we'll be discussing the utterly charming supernatural comedy, EXTRA ORDINARY.

    Rose, a mild-mannered driving instructor with an ability to talk to the dead, must exorcise seven ghosts in order to save a young girl from being sacrificed by a one-hit-wonder pop star who has turned to Satanism to restore his flaccid career.

    If you've ever wondered what would happen when I covered a movie that truly terrified me...you're about to find out.

    Because LAST GIRL STANDING is a movie that shakes me to my core.

    Twice before I've tried to talk about this film on the show.

    Twice before I've had to scrap the entire project because just scratching the surface turns me into a blubbering, frightened mess.

    Turns out what I needed was the calming soothing...
