016 – Get Out – House

In which The Lottery sends your hosts to meet the family, and they try to keep their wits about them while discussing GET OUT (2017) & HOUSE (1977). How these troubled secrets and dark histories express themselves is VASTLY different. From the wacky to the disturbing. We dig these movies so it was a tough one.

015 – Godzilla – Nosferatu

In which The Lottery has pitted one lovely giant monster against two incarnations of the same vampire. It’s GODZILLA (1954) against NOSFERATU (1922/1979). Red and Puffer ponder haunted national legacies, re-cut films, long shadows, and the smashing miniature infrastructure. It’s a jolly good time.

014 – Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II – Tucker & Dale vs Evil

In which The Lottery offers up the cheeky side of horror, as Red and Puffer consider the slapstick antics of TUCKER AND DALE VS. EVIL (2014) & the twisted delights of HELLO MARY LOU: PROM NIGHT II (1987). This one was a surprising thinker.

012 – The Ammityville Horror – XX

In which your hosts return to spend some quality time with family by watching, discussing THE AMMITYVILLE HORROR (1979) & XX (2017). Sometimes you have a fun extended clan, and other times you forget how tedious they can be and wish you had stayed at a hotel.

011 – It Follows – Jennifer’s Body

In which your hosts tinker with the show format, and consider two movies that look at the horror of young adults getting busy, IT FOLLOWS (2014) & JENNIFER’S BODY (2009). We’re probably going to tick off a few listeners with our hot take on the former, but are thrilled about the latter. This is a hot one, folks.

010 – Dead Silence – Killer Mermaid

In which your hosts check out super creepy ventriloquist dummy romp DEAD SILENCE (2007) and surprisingly dark slasher-with-a-mermaid tale KILLER MERMAID (2014). We have some fun with camp both intentional and not so intentional. Quite a body count this round.

008 -The Orphanage – Session 9

In which your hosts compare the merits of big budget Spanish language THE ORPHANAGE (2010) and low-budget classic SESSION 9 (2001*) and discovered that sometime indeed more money, more problems.

* Correction: I wrote the wrong date on the fact sheet for SESSION 9. The movie was in fact released in 2001, which was probably around when I first watched it. Maybe early 2002. In any case, I regret the error but also ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

007 – The Conjuring – Hush

In which Red & Puffer consider the merits of a couple of popular contemporary horror movies, the supernatural charms of THE CONJURING (2013) & violent, straight-to-streaming home-under-siege indie HUSH (2016), and end up considering how much time it is worth to spend on movies about which they feel meh.
