With the advent of the delightful The Suicide Squad, we decided to host a discussion about James Gunn’s Horror DNA. From writing the remake of Dawn of the Dead and The Belko Experiment to the super gory crowd-pleaser Slither – we even touch on Gunn’s industry beginnings with Lloyd Kaufman’s Troma! PLUS – we talk about Shawn’s new obsession with Nick Antosca’s Brand New Cherry Flavor, Scott Snyder and Scott Tuft’s Severed, Werewolves Within, The Silver Coin, and Ken Russell’s Lair of the White Worm. Plus, a lot more!
In this episode, we gather to watch and discuss James Gunn’s 2006 slime-encrusted masterpiece, Slither. Ray was a bit concerned this one would be too gross for him. Was he right? Click play and find out.
The discussion also includes but is not limited to: Anthony’s return to Clive Barker’s Nightbreed, Shawn’s final verdict on AHS 1984, Tori’s reaction to Jennifer Kent’s Babadook follow-up The Nightengale, Ray’s theatrical screening of Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse.
Oh yeah, and our Classic Corner pick this episode is none other than Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining!
It’s Saturday night and we’ve just had a viewing of Cold Hell! Pumped, Ray, Chris, Anthony, and Shawn decide to do an impromptu episode and talk about what they’ve seen recently, what they recommend you watch and why, what they recommend you don’t watch and why, and all kinds of tangential horror goodness in between!
