Don’t Read The Latin! Episode 76: Religious Horror!

0 Comments | Posted on May 28 2018 in Episodes

A new episode appears! Your hostesses Jennifer and Rhias discuss horror with a religious bent. While we’ve done shows on the devil and exorcisms, this covers the general topic more broadly, hitting things like pagan religions and angels.

On a technical note, I’d like to apologize for the sound quality on this one, I hit the wrong switch on the mic so it’s really crackly. I did the best I could, but it’s definitely not my best work. However, without further ado, here’s the picture of Rhias, Jillian Venters, and me, Handsome FIANCE Jim as we ride the Haunted Mansion all alone.

Don’t Read The Latin! Episode 75: Fairy Tales Revisited!

0 Comments | Posted on Apr 16 2018 in Episodes

It’s that time again, and Jennifer and Rhias  are joined by Lisa (from the Noir! episode), and Jillian Venters of Gothic Charm School  to talk about fairy tales: their horrifying origins, the stories of women they contain, and the movies that hold those things close to their celluloid hearts. Join them as they rip those hearts out and feast, including a few movies that you might not have thought of as fairy tales, then wind down with them as they discuss their own childhood stories and movies.

Handsome Boyfriend Jim note: At no point in this episode do they even mention “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” which I think is criminal, and Jen thinks I’m criminally tasteless for loving as much as I do. But I write these blurbs, so Hansel and Gretel gets its time in the sun!

Hello, Latin fans!

This episode features Rhias Hall of The Villain Edit, and we talk about women who direct horror movies.
