Are you ready for A LOT OF SPOILERS?! We're covering four new (to us) releases from the last six months that we saw in theaters! Dive into a neo-Western science fiction horror, a black comedy horror, a good ol' fashioned horror film and a psychological thriller as we look at a very mixed bag of plots, directors, performances, and subject matter. (C…
 
We're back with a new release of a classic franchise— it's time for David Bruckner's take on Clive Barker's classic Hellraiser! We went into this movie with our fingers crossed for more iconic designs and weird, horny vibes, but you'll have to listen to find out if this remake is more pain or pleasure. 💀 Content Warnings: torture, gore, brief sex s…
 
What's your favorite scary movie.....because there's a good chance that Wes Craven's 1996 slasher, Scream is going to reference it. We finally get around to this classic and revel in the most consecutive girlboss moments of ALL TIME as well as iconic kills and stand-out performances (hint: it's Matthew Lillard again). Content warnings: gun violence…
 
We're completing our summer slasher block by counting sheep and watching Wes Craven's 1984 American supernatural slasher film, A Nightmare On Elm Street! An inventive revitalization of the slasher genre, this movie has legendary special effects, questionable performance decisions, a stupid amount of blood, and one tiny girlboss trying to make it th…
 
Let's dive into Crystal Lake and a classic slasher, Sean Cunningham's 1980 slasher Friday the 13th! This movie was surprising throughout and not for the reasons you might think.

HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY HORRORSCOPE! We're celebrating two years in the movie-watching business by returning to a classic franchise and a sequel we had high hopes for, Raja Gosnell's 2004 live-action/computer-animated horror comedy, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. We had the classic Horrorscope experience watching this one (we'll let you figure out ex…
 
It's time to meet one tenacious child, his mom on the beat, and a tiny, tiny, horrible doll man. We watched Child's Play, Tom Holland's supernatural horror film. This movie is brisk, a little silly, self-aware, and filled with way more explosions than you'd expect from a possessed doll's reign of terror. Eric looks at the facts while Jaime confront…
 
We're going into uncharted territory...a place we've never gone...to a film with no Wikipedia article.! That's right, we're diving back into the toilet to watch the 1989 sequel with no relevance to the original, Ghoulies 2! This movie has a carnival gone mad, more magic, and, most importantly, more ghoulies. Jaime absolutely loses it and it's Eric'…
 
Buckle up, partners! We dove into Ti West's 2022 new release, X, which has received a lot of buzz for its style and homages. We were surprised by this movie's tone and restraint rather than the subject matter since this slasher grapples with aging, youth, beauty, sex, counter-culture, and one very patient alligator. Content warnings: sex and nudity…
 
Grab your shovel and your Dad, it's time for André Øvredal's 2016 supernatural medical thriller, The Autopsy of Jane Doe! This movie is brisk, brilliantly shot, and carried by the two main actors and some advanced yoga techniques. Eric supports the snacking rights of coroners while Jaime tries to unravel the mystery and keep her lunch down. Content…
 
We're tempting fate this week with a new franchise! James Wong's 2000 supernatural horror film Final Destination is established in popular culture but it's not even close to what we were expecting.

Grab your closest friends and your biggest pair of clown shoes! It's time for Stephen Cognetti's.found footage favorite, Hell House LLC. This movie is frequently recommended for a reason; it scared the daylights outta us. Does it hold up plotwise? Would we actually watch this documentary? What happens in the sequels and do they star a handsome, sca…
 
Did you double-check the GPS? Weird, it looks like you're pulling up to an identical podcast episode...it's time for David Bruckner's psychological horror, The Night House! This movie has clever cinematography, a knock-out performance from Rebecca Hall, and a whole lot of problems. Eric and Jaime try to escape the maze of plot together. Content War…
 
We're going to Wall Street, baby! Let's start the year off strong with Mary Harron's black comedy horror film, American Psycho (2000)! This satire on excess and privilege had a surprisingly scrappy production history. Eric revisits a classic while Jaime is continually surprised.

Grab your hiking boots and your traumatized friends, we’re heading into David Bruckner’s dreary folk horror film, The Ritual. This movie packs a swift punch with stark performances and a cult classic (👀) creature design. Jaime works through the effectiveness of this film while Eric somehow still thinks hiking is a good idea after a third rewatch. C…
 
Buckle up, gang! This week, we tackled Julia Ducournau's newly released bloody fable, Titane.

It’s a little new episode! A little new episode? A little..you get it, it’s time for our last horror musical of October, so we're diving into the grim and outlandish world of Darren Lynn Bousman’s 2008 passion project, Repo! The Genetic Opera. Eric repossesses a favorite film of his youth while Jaime tries to restructure this thing without going cr…
 
It's time to give yourself over to absolute pleasure and dive into the decadent debauchery of Jim Sharman's 1975 cult classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show!

Eric shares about one of his favorite movies of all time (!!) while Jaime is baffled, delighted, and horrified, all at onc…
 
It’s NOT a downright shame that we’re watching Sweeney Todd to kick off our murderous musicals Halloween theme for October!

This movie has the usual suspects in a Burton movie, some surprising performances, and a stunning score (one of Jaime…
 
We're kicking off October with James Wan's newest release, Malignant! This movie is, quite frankly, balls to the wall insane, with baffling performances, atmospheric set pieces, and one of the craziest scenes we've ever seen in a movie, PERIOD. Eric delights in the divisiveness while Jaime loses it, for real this time. Content warnings (Spoilers!):…
 
We’re diving into Clive Barker’s 1987 supernatural horror classic, Hellraiser. This movie has a tiny budget, a whole lot of atmosphere, and even more piles of skin. Eric breaks down the background of the film and its enduring cultural significance while Jaime grapples with the gore and tries to sort through complex feelings about a complex film. Co…

Grab your guns and your grudges, it's time for us to dive into one of Blumhouse's incredibly lucrative franchises!

Y’all ready for prom? Grab your blood buckets and corsages, it’s time to watch Brian De Palma’s supernatural horror film, Carrie (1976)!

We also flipped the script, so Jaime brought the research for this rewatch w…
 
James Wan did it again! The Conjuring 2 is packed to the brim with sick special effects, challenging British accents, spinoff potential, and our favorite ghostbusting grifter couple. Eric revisits a one-time watch while Jaime shouts her way through the scares. Say a prayer for us as we tackle this one. Content warnings: jump scares, brief body horr…
 
This time…..there’s more. No, really, there’s like a LOT of Aliens in Aliens (1986).

Eric defends this past favorite while Jaime grapples with the tonal shift from Alien. At least we’ll always have Ripley. 🖤 Content warnings: body…

This week, we dive into Jaume Collet-Serra's grungy slasher, House of Wax. This movie was billed as a tacky slasher romp, but what we watched was a deeply weird movie that's actually....good? We'll let you decide, dear listener. Eric makes puns and brings the background, while Jaime enjoys the perfect alignment of all of her guilty pleasures. Conte…

Eric brings the history of the monster movie format from Universal Horror, 3D, Milicent Patrick, and a music…
 
Welcome back to the Further! If you missed children astral projecting, creepy rocking horses, and wives getting gaslighted, Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) will delight you.

We’re starting the new year off WEIRD with Alex Garland’s swampy science fiction horror nightmare, Annihilation (2018).

WE MADE IT! 2020 is over and we're hosting the first annual Scopies Awards (which just means Jaime and Eric argue about stuff, as per usual).
