On this Off-Topic episode, Nolan is joined by Kat Adams, Paul Farrell, and Emily von Seele live from this year’s Fantastic Fest to discuss the movies they saw during the first two days of the festival.
Nolan is joined by Kat Adams, Ben McBride, Emily von Seele, and Paul Farrell to discuss Michael Mann’s Manhunter (1986) and Scott Derrickson’s Sinister (2012). The crew catches up on recent horror releases, new discoveries, and rewatches before nearly losing themselves to the obsessive study of grisly serial murders and the dark minds that perpetrate them.
Nolan is joined by Paul Farrell and Philip Yount — as well as special guest Trace Thurman from the Horror Queers podcast — to discuss Jacques Tourneur’s Curse Of The Demon (1957) and Sam Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell (2009). The crew share their thoughts on recent horror releases, new discoveries, and rewatches before a vindictive curse comes to pass and drags them all to hell, kicking and screaming.
Nolan is joined by Thomas Foster, Kat Adams, Emily von Seele, and Ben McBride to discuss Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man (1973) and Ben Wheatley’s Kill List (2011). The crew catches up on new discoveries and rewatches, as well as recent horror releases — including reviews of Child’s Play (2019), Annabelle Comes Home, and Ari Aster’s Midsommar (**Spoilers from 58:40 – 1:21:40**) — before they are manipulated and controlled in a sinister game with a twisted cult.Read More »
Nolan is joined by Philip Yount and Thomas Foster — as well as special guests Ben Christian and Zach Kindron (from the Silver Screen Breakdown podcast) — to discuss Ishirô Honda’s Godzilla (1954) and Hideaki Anno & Shinji Higuchi’s Shin Godzilla (2016). The crew digs into new discoveries and rewatches, as well as recent horror releases — including a review of Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King Of The Monsters (2019) — before literal embodiments of nuclear proliferation and radioactive contamination rise out of the sea to deliver their wrath upon the land.Read More »
On this Off-Topic episode, Emily takes the reins and is joined by Kat Adams, Thomas Foster, and Nolan McBride — as well as special guest Nick Caruso of The Littlest Winslow blog — to discuss their love for the Final Destination franchise (except for 2009’s The Final Destination because it stinks) and debate death’s best designs.
On this Off-Topic episode, Nolan is joined by Emily von Seele — as well as special guests Sam Van Haren from Talk Film Society (and its Keanu Believe It podcast) and Ryan Douglas from the Uncanny Nerdverse podcast — to discuss Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy (2004) and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008), as well as reviewing the Hellboy (2019) reboot from Neil Marshall and comparing how different filmmakers adapt the source material. With Mike Mignola’s comic and Guillermo del Toro’s first film both celebrating major anniversaries this year (25th and 15th, respectively), there’s no better time to dive into all things Hellboy.
