Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark & Ready or Not

This week we take a look a two recent horror films, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and Ready or Not. Did these well reviewed movies meet our expectations, or end up leaving us feeling a little bit cold? As per usually Sean will get hung up on the weirdest little things, and Drew will argue with Sean about getting hung up on the weirdest little things.

Enjoy!

Halloween (2018)

Should we have posted our episode on the new Halloween movie last Wednesday…on Halloween? Maybe, but I bet there were tons of people making that obvious choice. Instead, we are giving it to you in November, that way Halloween can live on in your hearts well into Thanksgiving.

Enjoy!

Stephen King

This week we finish our Kinner triple header with a deep dive into films from the mind of Stephen King.  Love them or hate them, these movies are worth discussing!  We cover everything from Carrie (the good), to The Dark Tower (the bad) and Sleepwalkers (the hilarious!!).  It's a fun conversation and we hope you enjoy!

Jigsaw and Better Watch Out

October is finished, but we just can't seem to stop talking about horror films. To kick off the season where we give thanks, we delve into the 8th film in the Saw franchise, Jigsaw. When you're sitting around the Thanksgiving table, maybe you will be grateful that we here at COtR talked you out of wasting your time on with this rehash of a rehash. We also watched Better Watch Out, and we give you plenty of warning before we talk about all the twists and turns of this particular horror/thriller. 

 

Enjoy!

Underrated Horror Films

It has been a long month here at COtR. We decided we would give you one last horror show, since it is Halloween and all. The assignment was simple, each of us brought to the table one horror film that we felt had been overlooked. The tone of these horror films were all over the map, which means there should be something for everyone...unless the only movie you like is Gone Fishin', in that case there is no place for you on this podcast, and maybe not anywhere. 

 

I can't wait until February when we spend a whole month talking about romantic comedies. 

 

Enjoy!

Reel Scares - Drew Martin

The last in our monthlong series of horror lists. Rounding out the month is are 5 favorite horror films for Drew Martin. Sorry, but I am going to stop referring to myself in the third-person. I will admit that I am not as big a horror fan as some of the other people who have contributed this month. My list tends to skew a little more to the lighter side of horror, or to the films that first scared me. 

If you managed make it through all of the Reel Scares episodes, and you didn't hear your favorites, please let us know, and maybe we can make sure to get to them next year. 

 

Enjoy!

Reel Scares - Ryan Venson

Anyone who has listened to the show, or anyone who has ever met Ryan, knows that horror movies are his bread and butter, his toast and jam, his Hall & Oates. Well now you can listen to an episode where Ryan talks about some of his favorite horror movies. Have some favorites of your own? Please let us know!

 

Enjoy!

Reel Scares: Roy King

So we decided we would do a little something extra for the month of October. In addition to the weekly show, we will also have several horror-centric episodes. These will probably (we're making this up as we go) consist of a list of horror films that we feel like people should watch. Not necessarily our all time favorites, but just whatever strikes us at the time. 

First up, Roy King. His list leans a little more to the nostalgic, light hearted side of horror films, but if you've listened to any of our episodes, this shouldn't surprise you. Please feel free to reach out and let us know what some of your favorite horror movies to watch this time of year. 

Isn't Roy adorable?
