After a 6 month hiatus, She Hate Horror bounces back with a vengence in this fun-filled 80's double feature. In the first half, we discuss the apocalyptic zombie flick, Night of the Comet. What would you do if you were one of only a few humans left on Earth? These gun-totin' ladies avoid becoming comet dust and food for the undead to ensure that they are able to hit the shopping mall. Our second pick comes from the start of the golden era of slasher flicks. Original "Scream Queen," Jamie Lee Curtis stars in this disco era murder mystery. What happens when four kids who are responsible for the accidental death of a classmate keep their secret for years, but a killer unknowingly waits in the shadows to seek revenge and wrack havoc on their Prom Night. You won't want to miss this episode of She Hate Horror!
In our fourth episode, we discuss two 80's horror flicks, Friday the 13th: Part III and the teased hair remake of 1958's The Blob. Friday the 13th: Part III was the first horror film @thesinglebanana saw as a kid. Does the fright still hold up, or has it lost some of its edge? And does not wiping your ass equate to instant death? In our latter discussion, we discuss what makes The Blob truly frightening and weight in on the differences and similarities of the original and the remake. Does the remake do an adequate job of paying tribute to the original cult classic on its 30th anniversary? And why does Kevin Dillon look like he could play bass for Ratt? The answers to these questions and many more in this spine-tingling episode of She Hate Horror!!!
In our third episode, we discuss the 1986 holiday horror classic, April Fools Day. Released at the end of the "slasher" era, this film is full of the seminal tropes viewers of this genre are use to. However, in one great twist (which we avoid spoiling), it manages to upend these stereotypes and create something meaningful and fresh. Produced by Paramount (who did the Friday the 13th series), this polarizing film will leave you with lots to think about. The second review on this podcast is of 1974's Black Christmas. Dubbed a "thiller" by it's director, many consider this little known film a "proto-slasher" due to the amount of commonalities that it shares with films from the slasher era that began a few years later. How do we rate these films and how does Wife hold up to the one-two punch of two films from her least favorite genre?
In this episode, we discuss the 1973, cult classic The Wicker Man, which stars a young Christoper Lee. More creepy and thought-provoking than horrific, this film has an ending that will shock and stay with you for days to come. Does it deserve the status of "cult classic," or is it merely a one viewing and done flick. In the latter half of our podcast, we discuss one of our favorite films from a year ago, It Follows. What made this film a standout for us then, and does it still hold up with a second viewing? Listen and find out!
This episode we discuss our first viewing of the very polarizing 1999 film, The Blair Witch Project. We discuss what makes it this way and what advantages it had at its disposal at the time of its release. Our second film is the modern reboot of the 1978 Corman classic, Piranha 3D. Singlebanana recalls watching this film in the theater and compares this experience to his home viewing. Does the film hold up, or does it miss its intended target?
The wife and I discuss our history with horror movies, including when we saw our first. We then break down the rules of our horror draft and choose our 31 films. Vetoes are thrown and we plead our cases to each other for the films we want to see. When the dust settles, we randomly generate a number to determine which of the 31 films we will watch first.
