Ep. 14 | Winter Isolation Movies Part 1: Frozen + The Thing
Ever wonder what it would feel like to be hopelessly stuck out in the cold? Ever feel like the walls are closing in? Ty and Mike unveil the "Winter Isolation" series by breaking down two very different movies: one a diamond in the rough and the other considered an all time classic. FROZEN is a simple yet effective horror/thriller not for the faint of heart. THE THING (directed by master of horror John Carpenter) is a milestone in practical effects, atmosphere and nihilistic tone.

Ep. 13 | Original vs. Remake: Psycho (w/ guest host Chelsea)
Tyler is joined by unpaid intern (and wife) Chelsea to break down and compare both versions of Psycho: Alfred Hitchcock's influential masterpiece from 1960 and Gus Van Sant's derivative and pointless remake from 1998.

Ep. 6 | 28 Days Later + 28 Weeks Later
With undertones of political and social malaise, 28 Days Later is more relevant and scarier than it was at the time of its release in 2002. The Corn Syrup boys discuss the movie that single-handedly reinvigorated the zombie genre, as well as its sequel, 28 Weeks Later (2007), a movie that is paced differently than its predecessor but is effective and scary (albeit more dense) in its own right.
