All in Horror

BONUS EPISODE - It: Chapter 2

27 years later and Pennywise is back. The second and final act of the It series, this film casts some legitimate movie stars as the older versions of the kids from Chapter 1, and is also tasked with bringing this epic tale to a close - An ending that the readers of the book (as well as characters in this movie) will tell you isn’t very good. The question people will be talking about for years to come is: does this movie close the It saga better than Stephen King’s own words did? It: Chapter 2 (2019), directed by Andy Muschietti.

BONUS EPISODE - It

Fall is here, the season for Halloween and all things horror! We are de-railing from the list once again to prepare for the upcoming It: Chapter 2. We watch the first film this week, which focuses on the younger character story, and brings to screen the same kind of childhood adventure that the film adaptation of Stand By Me captured decades ago, only this time with a murdering clown named Pennywise. It (2017), directed by Andy Muschietti.

Episode 164 - Come and See

This week, we watch the hard to find Russian classic that has influenced movies such as Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan, and Inglorious Bastards. Real artillery, bombs, animal deaths, and human emotions are put fourth on screen to create something horrifying and unlike anything else we've seen. Come and See (1985), directed by Elem Klimov.

Episode 165 - The Thing

This week, we watch a dog turn into a spider, a head turn into a spider, a chest turn into a mouth, and a hole bunch of aliens set fire in the snow. This classic sci-fi horror keeps us guessing as to who we can trust, and who is going to die next.  One thing is for sure, Kurt Russell's hair is glorious.  The Thing (1982), directed By John Carpenter.

Episode 166 - No Country For Old Men

This week, we watch the movie that features the creepiest haircut ever to grace the silver screen.  One man finds a bag of money in a drug deal gone wrong.  The haircut then proceeds to murder everyone in its path on its quest to retrieve the money.  The FBI agent from The Fugitive is on the case.  No Country For Old Men (2007), directed by Joel and Ethan Coen.

Episode 186 - Shutter Island

This week, we watch the mind-bending thriller that begs to be viewed more than once.  Leonardo Dicaprio is a detective that is about to blow the lid off of a government conspiracy located within a mental institution on a remote island off the coast of Boston...or so we are lead to believe.! Shutter Island (2010), directed by Martin Scorsese.

Episode 200 - Jurassic Park

This week, we watch the film that brings back dinosaurs in the groundbreaking blockbuster that combines horror, drama, comedy, action, adventure, sci-fi...really, this movie does it all.  Now with four films in the franchise (Jurassic World is currently the 4th highest grossing movie of all time), the original still towers over the sequels, with special effects that somehow didn't age a day. Jurassic Park, directed by Steven Spielberg.

Episode 207 - Memories of Murder

This week, we watch the the movie that captured a slot in Quentin Tarantino's list of the 20 best films since 1992 - a murder mystery that combines horror and comedy in a way that that leaves you not only guessing at who the killer is, but what tone the movie will take with the next scene.  Also, the best jump-kicks in movie history. Memories of Murder (2003), directed by Bong Joon Ho.
