  1. I think every year is an interesting year to be Stephen Dorff.

    And I think Heather and the Sizzle is Salem, Massachusetts 2nd favorite rock radio crew.

  2. When Heather said Dark Dels at the start of the show I kept thinking what a great October name it would be for Wisconsin Dells.

  4. i think it's much harder to make a second movie. partly because of expectations.

    when they do their first movies, they have no money, so they work that much harder, giving us what you would call 'happy accidents'

    i'm not saying it's easy making a first movie, far from it. but with the second movie the creators often end up with a studio. that means tight schedule, expectations, studio notes. and more money doesn't always mean better movie.

    all that to say, i'm not surprised you both have a lot of first timers on your list.

    1. Agreed! Perfect mix of styles. I would reverse the order, personally.

    2. Only got to Jackals tonight. I liked it, didn't love it. I did spend the whole time wondering where I knew the dad from......Jimmy fucking Mattingly! That sneaky devil.

  6. Great listen, I love hearing you both talk horror. 75% of these films were in my top of 2017 list, not just Horror, but straight up best of list: Blackcoat's, A Dark Song, Jackals, Hounds of Love (thanks, Heather! I don't see many others giving that film much love), IT, Get Out, etc...I haven't seen Tragedy Girls yet but am looking forward to it. The only one I don't jive with is The Shape of Water, I have gripes with Del Toro films, but who cares.

    One thing I found interesting that came to my mind while listening to your comments was something that I don't think I've ever consciously thought about. But I feel that the Horror genre has given us more films from a female perspective more than any other genre (not counting sub-genres). I don't think that is discussed very often.

    1. I actually thought about that a while ago. Almost all of the best horror flicks have female leads being hunted by male killers

  7. Did someone say Ken Russell? De Palma? Looks like I'm watching Paychopaths.
