10 Cloverfield Lane
Episodes about 10 Cloverfield Lane :
Well, 2016 has certainly been a year that most of us will be glad to put behind us, but there were some pretty damn fine horror movies that came out this year, and we’re here to talk about them! Join your hosts Michael Montoure and Jennifer Lovely and their special guests Handsome Boyfriend Jim, Jeff Harris, and Jillian Venters as we run down our top ten lists for the year! (Well — not everyone had a top ten list, strictly speaking. But you’ll see what we mean when you hear the episode.)
This was kind of a strange year for horror, as we had several good solid movies but no real stand-outs, and no real fun thrill-rides. But still, there are some gems you might have missed, and we’ll walk you through them.
Thanks for listening in 2016, and many many thanks to our listeners who have rated our podcast on iTunes and left reviews! The more reviews and ratings we have, the easier it is for people to find us.

If you’re starting to plan your Halloween party — and if you’re not, you’d better get on that, you only have 104 days left — we have totally got you covered this episode. Want to show your friends a couple of movies? This episode we talk about Horror Double Features and give our picks for what movies pair together well, like pairing cheeses and fine wines. While we’re at it, we talk about just what exactly makes two movies go together well as a single viewing.
We discuss the endings of both 10 Cloverfield Lane and Ex Machina. If you don’t want to hear the details, skip forward a couple of minutes when you hear us mention those titles.
We mention at the beginning of this episode that we were recording it on our laptop and on our new audio recorder, because Montoure didn’t trust that the recording was actually, you know, recording. And it’s a damn good thing he’s paranoid, because it turns out that the recorder did not save a file at all. The quality the first time we used it was great, and it will be a fine tool to add to our podcasting arsenal if we can ever figure out how to use the damn thing.
The Bag of Fucks
We mention in passing The Bag of Fucks, which is an awesome hand-made creation by our friend Dmitri Arbacauskas at Tormented Artifacts. When you have just run out of fucks to give, here’s the bag you could load some more into. (Or you can just open the bag if you want to show people that it is, indeed, empty.) You can get one of these beauties here if you are so inclined.
Jennifer mentions a few of her new favorites among the podcasts she listens to, so if you’d like to check those out, here they are:
In the News
Since we brought up Chopping Mall, a movie about security robots gone rogue in a shopping center, we naturally talked about a related story in the news recently, and in case you missed it, here it is: A mall security robot has knocked down and run over a toddler in Silicon Valley.
Thanks for Listening!

Welcome back, sugar — won’t you set down for a spell? There you are, settle right in, bless your heart. Thank you so much for joining us for a little Southern hospitality as we sit by the fire and talk about Southern Horror!
We will also be talking about the related-but-slightly-separate Southern Gothic genre, which Tennessee Williams described as writing fiction that captures “an intuition, of an underlying dreadfulness in modern experience.” Which is something we can all relate to, don’t you think?
Join us as we break down our favorite horror films that take place deep in the American South, including some that could only tenuously be said to take place in the South, including one that we were just straight up completely wrong about. (Michael brings up The Others, which, in fact, takes place in freakin’ England. DRtL regrets the error.)
Jennifer talks about her subscription to Horror Block, Nerd Block’s horror box subscription that provides her with hand-selected toys, T-shirts, and more surprises every month. (We are not affiliated with this site — Jennifer is just a happy customer.) You can sign up for Horror Block here, if you are so inclined.
We mention “Mama,” the original short film that Guillermo del Toro helped turn into a . . . well, sadly-inferior feature film. But the original hasn’t lost any of its intensity. You can watch it here:
Michael makes fun of the “Look at me, I’m burning” line from Silent Hill, because — well, just watch:
Finally, courtesy of Jim Cartwright, we have this article that’s right up our allery: Report: Leading Cause Of Death Still Venturing Beyond The Pines.
