We can't say it's the BEST Christmas horror movie out there, but it certainly is trying. Merry Christmas, everyone!
More episodes from "2 Guys And A Chainsaw"
1:00:21Stephen King and George Romero collaborated on this sequel to Creepshow, their answer to Tales from the Crypt, which we (coincidentally) tackled last week. The result is three solid tales of the supernatural where the bad guys get what is coming to them.
Tales from the Crypt (1972)
58:24This Amicus production was the first to use the EC Comics license, which kicked off a property that is still popular today in one form or another. With five twisty tales and a wraparound story featuring a more subdued Cryptkeeper than we're used to, its success spawned a sequel and inspired the Stephen King/George Romero projects, Creepshow and Creepshow 2.
Jaws: The Revenge
1:02:32While we're not sure we'd go quite THAT far - in fact, we find a lot to like about it - there's also a fair amount of eye-rolling and ridiculousness going on. Listen to this week's New Year's episode to find out what, if anything, makes this star-packed film entertaining. And thanks to Chris for the long-standing request!
All Through The House
1:01:04We can't say it's the BEST Christmas horror movie out there, but it certainly is trying. Merry Christmas, everyone!
1:07:23If you're looking for a film to put you in the Christmas spirit, search a little further. If you're looking for one to depress the hell out of you, check out what Simon requested of us. This taught, psychological horror film never lets up until its devastating conclusion.
Silent Night Deadly Night 4: Initiation
59:38You might call it the "Halloween 3" of the series, and it truly must be seen to be believed. We just wish there were more Christmas in it overall.
Don't Open Til Christmas
59:05This film by the producers of Pieces did not charm us in the same "so-bad-it's-good" kind of way that their previous outing did. What we have here is a mess of a movie, with such bad acting, editing, writing, and a nonsensical plot that we can hardly recommend watching it. So instead, just listen to us rip it open like a package under the tree.
1:03:03Arachnophobia a family-friendly fun and creepy horror film filled with stars. Thanks to Rob for requesting this forgotten gem and giving us a chance to talk about it!
Don't Torture a Duckling
1:08:59Todd decided to torture Craig again this week with another classic giallo pic from one of the masters, Lucio Fulci. We checked it out because Fulci claims it's his favorite film in his entire ouvre, which is definitely saying something. Another mass-murder mystery in a small Italian town harboring some deep secrets and a long history of rumors and suspicions, which was controversial enough to get only a limited release in Europe. And also, it's the very first Fulci film to feature extreme gore effects!
A Classic Horror Story
1:02:53We both loved the movie! So you should go to Netflix, watch it right away, and then come back and listen. Because we got a LOT of spoilin' ta do...
