The Guest is nothing like the movie I thought it’d be. It’s one of those movies where the name is so generically boring that someone asks you “Have you seen The Guest?” and you respond “Sure”, thinking you’ve seen it but you’re actually thinking of The Others, The Nun, The Grudge, The Delivery, or The . I actually just made up those last two, that’s how boring the title of this movie is. The premise isn’t that exciting either. A man shows up at a house claiming to be a friend of their son who died in war, but he’s weird.
That said, this movie is way more fun than the title or the premise would indicate. When it breaks the sidewalls of its mediocre horror mold and spills messily out into other genres, it becomes a ton of fun. Dan Stevens and Maika Monroe are excellent as well.
Thanks to Maggie for commissioning this unique movie. Join us on the podcast for our full review.
Here’s another petrifying prestige film… Jaws. Author Peter Benchley and director Steven Spielberg team up to put you off visiting the beach for a good long time. Does JAWS hold up? Or does the rubber shark effects make it feel safe to get back into the water. Check out the podcast to find out.
Thank you to everyone who sent feedback into the show for the first chunk of this season. This is the final feedback episode before The Walking Dead comes back in February. Enjoy the podcast and we’ll see you next year!
The finale of the first third of the final season of The Walking Dead brought not only a satisfying conclusion to one of the characters, but a new and truly amazing new word into the Walking Dead lexicon for fans around the world. Join us for the discussion of this final episode before the mid-season…
Time for the fans to weigh in on Promises Broken and, as usual, they have plenty of good points that we probably overlooked. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on the Commonwealth and more.
Another pretty good episode from The Walking Dead. Maybe not every aspect, but they brought around the Maggie / Negan relationship well enough that we’re able to look past its rocky start. Maybe the hardest pill to swallow this episode is the delay tactics happening in the commonwealth. There’s a lot of people needing things to happen, asking for those things, and nearly getting those things only for the show to rip them away at the last moment. We know, deep down at your core you’ve always been a show about cheap thrills, but you can do better, The Walking Dead.
We’re back for another round of listener feedback and there’s a lot of good stuff in this one. Stuff that we overlooked. Stuff that we most definitely should have picked up on. Luckily you all did it for us. Check out the podcast for all the corrections.
The Walking Dead has put together a string of passable episodes, or maybe just lowered our expectations enough to make it seem so, and this episode is another example of that. Join us for a breakdown of “On the Inside”. A big thank you to Mysteriana for creating the Watching Dead theme music. Find all…
Time to hear what you thought about this week’s episode of The Walking Dead, S11E05 “Out of the Ashes”.
I’d love to talk about Carol’s impassioned plea to bring Aaron back from the brink, or how Eugene is the only sane one in the truly insane group of survivors who want to set up a new life in The Commonwealth, thereby completely abandoning the people they came to find help for, or how Negan is absolutely right and Maggie is a maniac on a suicide mission… but I can’t. I’m so distracted by the new group of sh*tty pre-teens bullying Judith that I’m literally seeing red. WHERE’S MY BAT?!
