Black Christmas - "Let me lick it"
Black Christmas - "Let me lick it" Director Bob Clark is usually thought of for his more family friendly Xmas classic A Christmas Story, but before that he made this surprisingly brutal Christmas slasher flick! When a sorority house starts getting obscene phone calls & girls start going missing, its a race to find the killer in a sea of red herrings! A well made, well acted and super awesome Christmas horror flick!We hope you enjoy Black Christmas!!Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/HorrorMovieSurvivalGuide)

Session 9 - "It's gonna get ugly."
SESSION 9 is perhaps the best set-in-an-actual-abandoned-mental-hospital film there is! You know a location is terrifying when you don't have to set dress it for your horror film AT ALL. Fantastic performances, an overall sense of dread and the spooky setting itself make for one kick ass flick.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/HorrorMovieSurvivalGuide)

HMSG Interview with Bradford Nordeen
We love how horror brings people together and bonds us through shared experiences and ideas - so we jumped at the chance to interview friend of the podcast BRADFORD NORDEEN about his new book Because Horror. His new new book, Because Horror, with co-author Johnny Ray Huston, is a collection of 13 essays (incl. one poem) that mixes critical writing and memoir to explore horror movies and how they haunt memory. Bringing the glee of fandom into cinema scholarship, Because Horror promiscuously sways through titles like Messiah of Evil, Pulse, Mandy, Dante’s Cove and Scre4m, with prose that spreads sticky like louche gore over the history of a genre and its mutating sites of broadcast.We took a deep dive discussing the topic of one of Bradford's essays - the film BLOOD DINER! What a romp this one is - if you haven't watched it yet - please do & then listen in on the conversation!Photo Courtesy of Levan TK @levan_tkSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/HorrorMovieSurvivalGuide)

Audition "Everybody in Japan is lonely"
Takashi Miike's insane 1999 film AUDITION builds slow, but ramps up to a fever pitch of WTF insanity, living up to its cult classic status as one of the most messed up horror films of all time. Not for the faint of heart, but a beautifully made film.We hope you enjoy Audition!Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/HorrorMovieSurvivalGuide)

Knife + Heart "Homocidal"
This super stylish film takes place in the gay porno scene in Paris in 1979 when an unexpectedly kinky killer is on the loose and looking for young, handsome victims. Unpredictable, artsy and sexy, this film gets bonus points for being centered around actual *film* as well!Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/HorrorMovieSurvivalGuide)

Doctor Sleep (Director's Cut) "Shining like fire"
Finishing our round of Stephen King films is 2019's Doctor Sleep (Director's Cut). Mike Flanagan took on not only the sequel to one of Stephen King's most famous books, but also Stanley Kubrick's legendary film, and the weight of that is not lost in this film. With lots of visual tricks, cool FX and nods to the The Shining to look forward to! The director's cut gives the audience a little more background, and gives Constant Readers lots of tasty easter egg treats too. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/HorrorMovieSurvivalGuide)

The Mist - Window to the other world
2007's The Mist, the third in our round of Stephen King films and a first time watch for both Teri and Julia, was adapted and directed by Frank Darabont. When a mysterious deadly mist rolls into a small town, a group of people stuck in a supermarket together try to decide how to survive. Stupendous performances and a love it or hate it ending!

Cell - Devil's Intercom
The second in our round of Stephen King films is 2016's Cell - a first time watch for both Julia and Teri - starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson as strangers who meet during a cell phone induced apocalypse and must now fight to get home against those the cell phones have turned into zombiesque beings. Don't worry, we were surprised we hadn't heard of it either, especially when Stephen King helped to adapt the screenplay - a cool movie nonetheless!

Cujo - Nope, nothing wrong here.
Starting a round of Stephen King films is Cujo, which surprisingly neither Julia nor Teri had seen before! This 1983 classic doesn't disappoint with the tension or gore and both Dee Wallace and Danny Pintauro give mind blowingly amazing performances. A book and a movie that gave the world shorthand for "bad dog" - not too shabby at all! Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/HorrorMovieSurvivalGuide)
