24. Rabid (1977).

In preparation for its pending remake by the Soska Sisters, Sarah and Adam discuss how David Cronenberg’s Rabid inspired the plague horrors of 28 Days Later and the sexual terrors of It Follows. Rabid’s also the story of how stem cells create a killer penis that lives in a porn star’s armpit, which makes even less sense than it sounds. Plus, your hosts reveal how to do a proper David Cronenberg impression, pan obvious Freudian readings of horror films, praise Marilyn Chambers, and celebrate the love story of Ketchup Man and Potato Man.

This episode brought to you by the phrase “Anus-Penis”. Not a real sponsor, but Sarah and Adam say it enough that it might as well be.

23. Cathy’s Curse (1977).

Cathy’s Curse! It’s Canada’s answer to The Exorcist and The Omen, though it has more in common with Exorcist II and Omen IV. One of Canada’s most notorious good-bad flicks, Sarah & Adam brave this one’s internet infamy to see if there’s some panache to this tale of a terror toddler. Oh, and yes, this is the “Your mother’s a bitch!” movie.

22. Prom Night IV: Deliver Us From Evil (1992).

If you think slasher movie clichés and criticism of Catholic church molestation scandals go together like chocolate and peanut butter, Prom Night IV might be the film for you! Our Summer of Proms is finally over, as A Part Of Our Scare-itage prays for the souls who dared stretch out this non-starter of a horror franchise. In this episode, Sarah & Adam discuss Catholic horrors both onscreen and off, while Sarah pitches her idea for Prom Night V.
