“Angela Bettis! Angela Bettis! Angela Bettis!” said David Carson into the camera, and poof! She was there to provide one of the few redeeming qualities in this made-for-TV wad.

WOW! Sissy Spacek absolutely slayed in nutty jamboree of a high school prom horror that Piper Laurie, Nancy Allen and John Travolta all thought was a fun, over-the-top comedy when they were filming it. Is it still OK for say “slay, queen” now that someone else’s queen is dead? I’m gonna slay “Yes!” Also in this movie is William Katt’s amazing hair, now contextually placed as the forebear of Kevin Van Hentenryck’s Basket Case hair. In my untethered-to-reality mind, William Katt’s Tommy secretly survived, changed his name to Roger, and became a famous horror novelist with completely delusional memories of having been in “the shit” in Vietnam. V-necks. There, I said it. What am I saying? Who can say! You can’t write all good when you’re running on Monster and Nyquil (yes, with a Jolly Rancher), so shut up and listen to our first of three episodes reviewing motion picture adaptations of Stephen King’s first novel, Carrie. It’s Loathsome Things: A Horror Movie Podcast!

Boobs, silly gag humor, and the most ridiculous forms of cannibalism are just the tip of this zany masterpiece of 80s Horror-Comedy! Jackie Kong achieved greatness in this packed era of the sub-genre, making what is quite possibly the most ultimate 14-year-old boy movie possible. As a pair of wizened 14-year-old boys, ourselves, we thank her for her contribution. From topless aerobics and fully nude martial arts to Hitler-wrestling, epic projectile vomiting, squirty stump-driving, and, of course, seeing how hamburger condiments would accurately splatter against a farty ass in full moon, this semi-sequel to Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Blood Feast is a true hidden gem that we’re delighted to make our newest episode of Loathsome Things: the Best Horror Movie Podcast!   And buy a copy of Jackie Kong’s new comic book: Spend the Nighthttps://www.jackiekongdirector.com/about-6Use promo code LOATHSOMETHINGS at checkout to support cool artists doing cool things by paying full price!

Thomas Jane, Damian Lewis, Timothy Olyphant, Jason Lee, Tom Sizemore and Morgan Freeman star in this sci-fi-fantasy-horror movie about evil alien penis monsters that shoot out of your butt and the man-children gifted with the exact combination of bench-warmer X Men powers needed to stop them… or something. You know, it gets a little confusing in there. It’s a Stephen King something, and we both remembered it more fondly than we watched it! So, join us for this experimentally 1-hour episode of Loathsome Things: A Horror Movie Podcast where we didn’t talk about Rob Zombie.

Oh, last summer, how memorable you were! With your floppy hats, plunging necklines, and fertile youths frolicking about on sandy beaches, full of hope and possibilities. The mind that brought us Dawson’s Creek and Scream also brought us this movie, where Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Ghost Whisperer struggle through the teenage turmoils of love, friendship, and vehicular manslaughter. Can these busty teens come up with even the vaguest idea of how to solve a mystery? Will Ryan Phillippe look at Jennifer Love Hewitt’s boobs? Will it turn out that David Egan or Billy Blue actually matter? Find out the answers to this and Sarah Michelle Gellar’s breast-enhancing exercise techniques in the newest episode of this Freddy Prinze Jr. fancast!

We go on at length about this polarizing folk-slasher from the dude that wrote the screenplay for 28 Days Later. It’s very high concept and bookends Hagazussa nicely as an opposite of Saint Maud. Really, these three films have been a great leading-lady triple feature. If you wanted to listen to us spend way too much time comparing and contrasting the careers of Glenn Danzig and Rob Zombie instead of talking about this movie that has nothing to do with either of them, please listen to this newest episode of Loathsome Things: A Horror Movie Podcast!

We really schatten the bed with this blutty film about how much it sucked to live with emotional trauma in the Black Plague-era Alps while being identified as any combination of a witch, heathen or Jew. Here, I’ll horn in a content warning: this episode unqualifiedly discusses rape, infanticide, cannibalism, and anti-semitism. Now that feuer of you are interested hearing what we’re going to chuckle about, please watch the movie and listen to this newest episode of Loathsome Things: A Horror Movie Podcast!

Technical difficulties and illness plagued our recording of this absolute masterpiece from Rose Glass. An emotionally unwell woman with idiosyncratic religious convictions works as an in-home nurse for a sin-loving woman dying of cancer. Can they get over their differences and personal challenges to solve the murder mystery before it’s too late? No!

We’ve been alluding to this episode for a while, but now is the time! It’s the Fangoria Gore Zone slashic that no one talks about. Gabriel Bartalos, Warwick Davis, and Karoline Brandt hold nothing back in this romantic horror comedy about love, forgiveness, high-effort methods of watching porn with your friends, and… consumerism, maybe? We’re not really sure what to make of this movie, but it finally got Josh to watch The Texas Chain Saw Massacre for the first time, so we also get to talk about that on the latest episode of Loathsome Things: A Horror Movie Podcast!

What’s this, a secret Edgar Allan Poe adaptation starring Vincent Price? NOPE! Just a little Bucklecore historical fiction film about a man, his best friend, and their shared dream of accusing people of witchcraft, torturing them into confessing their witchery and devil-worship, and making a fortune in the process. What could be rapier than that? (see episode for additional sword puns).

It’s been a year since we delved into the original transgressive masterpiece, but now we’re back to learn about the mating habits of the endangered Duane and Belial in this higher-budgeted, more comedic and less rapey installment of the Basket Case franchise. I guess Belial was an Incel in part 1, but he’s better now that he has a girlfriend, and can focus on his true passions: sloppy nutting and murder! Grab a tube of your favorite horse paste and climb into the dog bed with the lump you love to listen to the newest episode of Loathsome Things: a Horror Movie Podcast.

Grab your most sexually-active teddy bear before you listen to us talk about this… uhhhhh… like, I guess, some kind of a horror movie targeted at children. Specifically, children that want to see a lot of nudity… and want to watch one of their own commit weird sex crimes… Yikes!

A movie about people saying “La Fin Absolue Du Monde” as many times as possible in 59 minutes while a baby-faced Norman Reedus has a Eurotrash adventure across beautiful Vancouver, Canada, at the behest of Udo Keir’s poorly-decorated ambitions! Meta-commentary about the film business abounds in this gory movie-about-a-movie-that’s-more-than-a-movie. And for our Star Trek fans, there a special appearance from none other than B'Etor/Chief Examiner Nimira’s own Gwynyth Walsh.

Gareth Evans told us to try a new recording software, so the audio sounds a bit like we travelled to a low-tech island where the good Lord has been usurped by some kind of gauzy vineyard witchiness. Wait, maybe I’m getting some details confused. Dan Stevens, Kristine Froseth, Mark Lewis Jones, Lucy Boynton, Michael Sheen star in this long, complex horror film about the aforementioned actors having to band together to prevent Iko Uwais from getting to the top of the fertility goddess’ high-rise… wait… Ok, I think I got confused again, either that or I just came up with a great movie pitch guest-starring Tony Jaa!

This harbinger of the folk-horror renaissance won several FX awards and is a source of hope for the bright future of non-practical creature effects in cinema.

Just after adapting Salem’s Lot for television and just before directing the music video for Billy Idol’s Dancing with Myself, Tobe Hooper returned to the fringes of Southern Gothic-in-retrograde murdery wetness with this solid update on the Quasimodo/Frankenstein’s Monster story by way of David Lynch’s The Elephant Man. Clean the cotton candy off your fingers and join us for a drippy dive into the schlocky wonder of Dennis Hopper’s… I mean, Tobe Hooper’s The Funhouse (1981), possibly most-popular among folks image-searching “Elizabeth Berridge nude.” If you would like to recommend a movie, tell us what horror movie setting you think hasn’t been explored to its fullest potential, or ask us horror movie-related questions, you can do so by reaching out to us onTwitter: @LoathsomePodInstagram: @LoathsomePodFacebook: @LoathsomeThings Please rate and review if you think other people would enjoy our show, or if you feel they should be warned!   The Loathsome Things Official Top 10 Greatest Horror Movies of All Time List (of those we've reviewed for an episode of Loathsome Things: A Horror Movie Podcast) (1) Bob Clark’s Black Christmas (1974)(2) George A Romero’s Night of the Living Dead (1968)(3) Miike Takashi’s Audition (1999)(4) Bob Clark’s Deathdream (1974)(5) David Prior’s The Empty Man (2020)(6) Frank Henenlotter’s Basket Case (1982)(7) Nicolas Roeg’s Don't Look Now (1973)(8) Ben Wheatley’s In The Earth (2021)(9) Nick Szostakiwskyj’s Black Mountain Side (2014)(10) Howard Hawks/Christian Nyby’s The Thing from Another World (1951) Honorable Mentions: Beyond the Door III (1989) – Not a great horror movie, but so much fun to watch!

Wow! This classic manages to swaddle some truly transgressive, squirm-inducing discomfort in the gauzy warmth of William Asher’s 1950s-60s television eyeball. I don’t know what’s happening to my body, but I don’t like it. For a good time, watch this movie starring Jimmy McNichol, Bo Svenson, Julia Duffy, Steve Eastin, and an unfathomably epic performance from Susan Tyrell. Also, an early-career appearance by "William" Bill Paxton, because Billy needed to be menaced by more enemies!

Blumhouse Productions and Sophia Takal bring the feminism back to Black Christmas and… well, they really do it up.

In the northern Taiga Cordillera, some dudes found something strange between bouts of playing cards and drinking, so they did the only natural thing to do: get some other dude to come here. Enter Black Mountain Side, a movie that, at its heart, is about male friendship, fellowship, and camaraderie. Also getting in on the feel-good action is a Lovecraftian deity that manifests as a deer standing up on its hind (get it!) legs. What a wacky crew!

Welcome to the show notes for the Fourth episode of the Loathsome Things Podcast! We watched the under-the-radar sensation that some people are calling “The Empty Man.” Going by the trailer, this movie is a dumb pile of ass. But, after actually watching the movie, this movie kind of kicks asses into a pile. It starts off in the mountains of Bhutan and ends up in … sleepy, small-town Missouri. Along the way, there’s plenty of wet-teeth noises, solidly unsettling business, something about a teddy bear, adults lurking outside of high schools to lure young girls (or women) into their cars with the promise of cigarettes, references to at least two philosophers, a surprise Stephen Rooting, and a fantastic sense of looming doom!

Welcome to the show notes for the third episode of the Loathsome Things Podcast! For this episode, we reviewed Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now. This classic horror movie centers on the characters portrayed by Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie: a married adult couple that find it much easier to talk to, talk about, think about, and run around as in some sort of game with the spirit of their dead child, rather than their only living offspring. Set in the “someone’s gotta clean that aquarium” era of Venice, this film takes its time allowing the viewer to build a relationship to the characters, including a really wild sex scene where, you know, they do it. This is really more of a Drama film until the final 10 minutes, where it surprised audiences with one of the twistiest twist endings in cinema history. This movie's influence on Horror cannot be overstated… well, I guess it can. BUT, you can see its influence most brazenly appearing in David Cronenberg’s The Brood and M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense. If you would like to recommend a movie, share your experience of seeing this film for the first time, tell us we’ve mis-spoken this movie’s title, criticize Josh’s obviously not-sincere rating of this film, or chase us around the moldering nighttime of Venice like a lanky creeper, you can do so by reaching out to us onTwitter: @LoathsomePodInstagram: @LoathsomePodFacebook: @LoathsomePodcast This episode has been brought to you by Kanopy! Library Card-holders can watch this movie for free through www.kanopy.com. We don’t normally do free advertising, but it’s literally a library service that offers classic, artistic, and documentary cinema as a service to the community.

Welcome to the show notes for the second episode of the ground-breaking, teeth-gnashing, future award-losing Loathsome Things Podcast!For this episode, we reviewed Frank Henenlotter’s Basket Case. This fever dream of a movie is an absolute assault on the one’s better judgement, resulting in maniacal humor, passages of violent low-budget greatness, and a unique style that threatens the viewer with a higher plane of absurd horror movie bliss. This combination lulls an audience into a false sense of good cheer, before throwing that good mood out the window with some shockingly horrific scenes. For a movie that is so enjoyable and full of good humor, it gets REALLY DARK.Content Warning: In addition to the sort of violence and menace you would expect from a standard horror film, Basket Case portrays surgical assault on children, sexual assault, rape and/or necrophilia. Yikes!To see what Frank Henenlotter is up to, please follow him here: https://www.facebook.com/frank.henenlotterNote: We recorded this episode before the movie was made available on a certain horror streaming service.
