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! Watch it before you listen!
If you would like to recommend a movie, tell us your fan theory, remind us of that detail we forgot to mention, convince us we’re only as old as our podcast, or make fun of the way one of us sounds, you can do so by reaching out to us on
