Episode 291: House of the Devil (2009)


Ti West is that kind of movie-maker whose entire reputation stems from one absolutely amazing film, and this week we're heading back in time to spend a night at THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL (2009). Listen to us wax poetic on set dressings and frames per second, it's riveting!

More Horror Films From the 2000s

It's been far too long since we've discussed hot guys who want to tear your throat out and bathe their hideously large jaws in the hot crimson spray from your jugular on this show... Actually, we can't remember the last time we did that, so let's remedy it with sadly overlooked FRIGHT NIGHT (2011). As far as modern remakes go, this one is pretty damn good, and we try our best this week to go through all the reasons you should agree. Also buff Colin Ferrell, come on!

It's that time of year, fam: the time when we get stuck in a snowstorm with people we can't stand as we're slowly picked off by bad CGI creatures! This Christmas, we're unwrapping the dirty diaper that is KRAMPUS (2015), the movie that reminds us not all wishes should be granted... No, we're not talking about the actual plot of the movie, but rather Michael Dougherty's wish to throw as much digital garbage at the screen in hopes that it makes you forget how insufferable every character is.

Do you like summer camp slashers? Are you so hard up for your horror fix that you'll watch literally anything even remotely similar to Friday the 13th? Well then you're in luck, because we got you covered with this week's absolute snoozer of a flick, BLOODY MURDER 2: CLOSING CAMP (2003)! While it may say it was filmed in '03, the clothes and hair of the "actors" involved screams 1999, so if you were in high school at that time, get a couch cushion ready to cover your awkward nostalgia boner. This one was another pick weaponized by Brian, and required us to do a movie pick intervention afterwards. Suffer with us once again on Horror Movie Night!
