Hey listeners! While we prep for coming episodes and take some time to breathe, we're sharing this exclusive Patreon episode. We're excited for Jordan Peele's 'US' coming out March 21 and thought it would be fun to offer up this installment about Peele's directorial debut 'GET OUT'.
And a HUGE thank you to our Patreon patrons who made this episode possible. You're the best!
We've got some things in the works, so you'll get an update episode before February is out.
This week we take our first steps into The Haunting of Hill House. Before celebrating Mike Flanagan's Netflix miniseries we make a stop at the first feature film adaptation of Shirley Jackson's classic, 1963's The Haunting. (We agreed that Robert Wise could have used some ghosts in his haunting movie.)
Happy Halloween! We welcome back podcaster (Miskatonic Musings!) and author of Farmington Correctional, Sean M. Thompson. We talk about his books, mental illness, sleepwalking, and dive into Brad Anderson's low budget gem, Session 9.
To celebrate our 150th episode we're celebrating the end of the world! We talk Apocalypticism, the study of doomsdays across different cultures and theologies. Having some fun with the idea, we focus on three end of the world comedies, Edgar Wright's The World's End, Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's This is the End, with The Happening in between. For M. Night Shyamalan's Mark Wahlberg-helmed disaster we recorded our audio commentary and edited it down to the best parts for your listening pleasure.
We take a look at the Netflix true-crime docuseries "The Staircase". Leaving spoilers for the second half of this episode, we take a deep dive into Kathleen Peterson's mysterious death and the court case surrounding Michael Peterson. Exploring the docuseries and beyond, we offer some armchair sleuthing as well as other sources for the listener to explore the case.
