On this very special Off-Topic episode, Nolan is joined by the entire Dead Ringers crew — Emily von Seele, Paul Farrell, Ben McBride, Kat Adams, Thomas Foster, and Philip Yount — for the first time ever to discuss the best horror movies of 2018. Nearly 50 movies enter the ring, but only 10 will fight their way to the top (or rather, someone will fight on their behalf to get them to the top).
We’re only halfway through 2018 and it’s already turning out to be another great year for genre film. Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead are some of the most exciting voices currently working in the genre and, between Resolution and Spring, they’ve shown both a reverence for horror/sci-fi and a desire to push their work into unexpected and decidedly humanistic territory. Their newest feature, The Endless, combines UFO death cults and cosmic horror with the story of two brothers seeking closure on their mysterious upbringing, making for an emotionally resonant movie that will also mess with your head.
To celebrate its release on Blu-ray, we’re giving two (2) Dead Ringers listeners a chance to score a copy of the film.
On a very special bonus episode, Nolan is joined by William Mahaffey, Festival Director of the upcoming Knoxville Horror Film Fest, which is running from Friday, October 20th through Sunday, October 22nd at the Regal Downtown West Cinema 8 in Knoxville, Tennessee (tickets available here). We discuss what goes into putting on a film festival and what makes KHFF unique, as well as detailing the festival’s impressive lineup of feature films.
