Up next, a listener request! Join us in two weeks when we'll review The Pact, available on Netflix (in the U.S., at least).

47 | The Invitation

 

Director: Karyn Kusama

Writer: Phil Hay, Matt Manfredi

Stars: Logan Marshall-Green, Michelle Krusiec, Aiden Lovekamp, Mike Doyle

Synopsis: Will (Logan Marshall-Green) is invited to a dinner party hosted by his x-wife, Eden, and her new husband. Not only that, but all their closest friends will be there and no one has seen each other for the last two years, after the tragedy that caused Will and Eden's divorce. But once everyone gets to the party, it's clear that there is something strange afoot.


Next up, we'll be covering the sort of non-horror horror movie, Green Room. Nazi skin-heads, Patrick Stewart, and dirty punk bands galore. This movie promises an exciting and gorey ride!

41 | Spring

 

Directors: Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead

Writer: Justin Benson

Stars: Lou Taylor Pucci, Nadia Hilker, Vanessa Bednar

Synopsis: Finding himself in a personal tailspin following the death of his mother, Evan flees the US for the mediterannean beauty of Italy. At some point between enjoying the beautiful setting and putting up with his two loud, British pals, Evan sparks up a romance with an intelligent, gorgeous woman harboring a dark, primordial secret.

 

Coming up next...wait for it...it's The Witch. Considered by some to be "literally the most satanic experience outside of meeting satan himself," this movie has a lot of hype to live up to. If it ends up being a piece of shit, I don't know that Amy will ever recover from the disappointment (but she'll know how Jamie felt when she saw the movie Troy). So join us for episode 42 when we'll be talkin bout some witches.

39 | The Forest

You may have noticed we were supposed to review The Boy for our last episode and did not. We aparently are below-average calendar users because we didn't realize it wouldn't be out yet. However, now we are sure and, if you join us next time, you will hear our review of The Boy.
