It's about time we covered The X-Files. We show some appreciation to the great writers and directors behind classic episodes and talk our favorites FIREWALKER, WAR of the COPROPHAGES, KADDISH, and DETOUR.
WARNING: There's an audio issue for the first half, but it's back to normal at the 39 minute mark.
We're back from our deep dive into J Horror (thanks again, Charles!) for a review of The Conjuring 2. We've got mixed feelings about James Wan's (of Saw, Insidious, and Furious 7 fame) return to the adventures of Ed & Lorraine Warren. This time they investigate the famous Enfield Haunting.
This first installment of our J HORROR series takes us to some weird places. We start with Japanese cultural aesthetics, and by the end are talking about Cyberpunk Dadaist music styles. All the while, we discuss 1977's House, and Shin'ya Tsukamoto's Tetsuo, the Iron Man (1989).
Welcoming Mindy back from her work trip we catch up and talk about what we've been watching. Mindy finished The Leftovers (Darren's finally hooked), started Riverdale, and hated Man Vs. Darren watched Beyond the Gates, and [in doing research for the Patreon episode on Jordan Peele's Get Out] went back to 1975's The Stepford Wives.
Mindy fights through walking pneumonia to bring you this grab bag of movies and documentaries. This week we review Dig Two Graves (2014), the new HBO documentary Mommy Dead and Dearest, the Eli Roth produced, Clown, and 2008's The Children.
