Sarah and Adam run afoul of cultists, video-game adaptations, and a nightmarish part of Pennsylvania when they review the Canadian-shot and Canadian-scripted Silent Hill.
Sarah and Adam have been good all year and are visited by both Krampus and Shatner Clause in this Canadian Christmas carol. Since your two horror hosts dipped heavily into the nog prior to recording things get sloppy as they discuss anthology movies, the perils of only remembering the best parts of a movie, and that damn fourth Texas Chainsaw movie where Matthew McConaughey has a robot leg.
We talked about Long Pigs and its commentary in episode 5.
We discussed Deathdream and its commentary in episode 6.
We reviewed Ginger Snaps in our second episode.
1988’s The Brain (we’ll cover this one eventually).
Bailey Downs, the setting of Ginger Snaps, Orphan Black, and this movie.
Trick ’r Treat (2007).
Awaken, Happy Tree. Rise to the surface!
H0H 0H0 Canada promo featuring rapping French-Canadian elves.
Sarah and Adam relive their memories of Vietnam war movies as they discuss Bob Clark’s Deathdream, a movie that qualifies as Canadian by the thinnest of definitions. Despite this, there’s a lot of Canadian stuff to discuss, like mistaken Canadian identity, Bob Clark’s dealings with Canada, Canada’s role in the Vietnam war, and one cast member’s appearance on SCTV.
Note: Deathdream is known under a number of alternate titles, the most common being Dead Of Night (though it’s one of several movies with this title) and The Night Andy Came Home.
Hereditary (trailer). Sarah’s right, it’s great! Do yourself a favour and don’t spoil a single detail before you see it.
Sarah & Adam sink their teeth into a meaty discussion on Canadian cannibal movie Long Pigs. Serial killings! The ethics of meat! Weird conservatism! The regrets of listening to director’s commentaries! All this and more will be discussed in an episode that will leave you feeling bad about the Lilydale Meats guy.
Sarah & Adam feast on the rare cannibal movie that stars members of SCTV. Yes, Andrea Martin and Eugene Levy star in Ivan Reitman’s horror-comedy Cannibal Girls. Well, Adam thinks it’s kind of a comedy, but Sarah’s not so sure. Is this our answer to Tobe Hooper’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre or, barring that, one of TCM’s many sequels/reboots? Only those who are brave enough to listen to the podcast after the warning bell will know for sure.
