Christian and Ian have an illness and the cure is eels, or something...

For this episode we are still trying to keep pace with the horror releases of the new year. The first movie we review is a female-centric anthology called XX. For our Thrill List segment we name our Top 3 Horror Movies We Wanted to Turn Off After 10 Minutes. Finally, we review Gore Verbinski's return to horror, A CURE FOR WELLNESS. We also discuss green skies, eel water, and threats involving 12 inch BBCs.

Christian and Ian find themselves somewhere between a sequel and a reboot. 

For this episode we are still drowning in new movies to talk about so we double dip again on new releases. The first movie we review is the supposed capstone to a long running zombie franchise, RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER, and we discuss whether or not it is a satisfying conclusion. For our middle segment, we bring up a film from last year that is now available on VOD in hopes that more people will check out The Love Witch. Finally, the other 2017 horror sequel for us to discuss is part 3 of the long dormant Ring series, RINGS. We also discuss clones, vintage VCRs, and boring white people.

For this episode we take a look forward at what 2017 horror offerings are looking like. The first movie we review is the boogeyman knockoff, THE BYE BYE MAN. For our Movie from the Crypt we indulge in a recommendation and watch a Japanese found footage movie, NOROI: THE CURSE. Finally, we have a spoiler-filled discussion of M.

Christian and Ian are back and trying to figure out what the numbers mean.

On this episode, we condense an entire year's worth of horror offerings into 3 lists- Top 6 Movies of 2016, Top 6 New to Us Movies of 2016, and Worst 6 of 2016. 3 lists of 6 films each, hence the 666 title for this episode. We also read all the emails and comments we received with other folks' lists from the year. We briefly discuss why terrible things happening in the real world draws us into escapist cinema, we agree quite a bit throughout our various lists, and we also bicker like schoolchildren about what should or shouldn't be considered a horror movie.

Dec 12, 2016

Christian and Ian hate adults.

We are at the end of the road for our first Overkill series. We have discussed every entry of the Scream franchise, and it has all led to season 2 of the MTV series. After discussing each entry we try and answer whether or not we are still in on this franchise or if at this point it is overkill. We were surprisingly mostly onboard for season one, but still had many reservations that MTV could successfully adapt this beloved series a second time. We discuss the surprising Halloween special, the more comfortable way the show referencing horror, and what we can expect from season 3. We also discuss Scooby Doo, how boring parents are, and Christian again forces a reference to The OC.

While the Cryptkeeper's away the mice will play.

Ian is still globetrotting so Christian invites some previous guests, Tyler Belk and Calah Skelton, to make their triumphant return to IOAP and talk some movies. The new movie up for review is a VOD emotional horror offering called THE MONSTER. For Movie from the Crypt, Calah chose a found footage movie based on a fake ghost hunter TV show, GRAVE ENCOUNTERS. We also discuss Arnold Schwarzenegger, lesbian roommates, and insufferable millenials who go to Coachella. Oh, and satanists.

Christian and Ian try and find out if Wes Craven had anything to do with video killing the radio star.

Why did we watch the first season of MTV's Scream series? That's a fair question, and the answer is that we are in our first Overkill series of episodes in which we watch all entries of a horror franchise and attempt to answer whether or not we are still in on this franchise or if at this point it is overkill. We have already discussed all of the movies so now we turn to the younger generation to see if kids who are growing up with Snapchat can faithfully continue this beloved franchise. We discuss the show's many departures, our thoughts on the killer reveal, and whether or not the Brandon James mythos is a worthy follow up to Ghostface. We also discuss how old these alleged high schoolers look, The OC, and pornography that is actually printed on paper.

Happy Halloween! We celebrate the spooky holiday and our first year as a podcast by continuing our Overkill series and discussing SCREAM 3.

Oct 17, 2016

Christian and Ian are blissfully aware that these days you gotta have a sequel. 

This episode continues our Overkill series in which we watch all the entries of an established horror franchise. In each episode we try to answer the question- are you still in on this franchise, or at this point is it overkill? We are currently on part 2 of the series and discussing SCREAM 2. We try and put ourselves in the mindset of the late 90s slasher craze that this movie was released in, lament perhaps the most tragic death of the series, and praise the inclusion of Omar Epps and Jada Pinkett in the movie's opening and some much needed racial-politics-in-horror-movies conversation. Note: for this episode, Christian's role is performed by Tori Spelling, while Ian is replaced by Luke Wilson.
