1 Comment | This entry was posted on Oct 10 2016

“Let’s make this bullshit happen!”

” …. Is that going to be our new motto from now on? Actually, that might look good on stickers, now that I think about it.”

So hey, check us out! Fifty episodes! That’s kind of a lot! And to celebrate, we are counting down the TOP FIFTY HORROR MOVIES OF ALL TIME!

Okay, well, no. We’re not going to pretend that we’re being at all objective. What we’re actually doing is our Our Top Fifty Favorite Horror Movies! You’re actually getting more than fifty, because Jennifer and Michael have each brought their own lists, so listen in as they compare the movies they love the most. (Presented in chronological order, so as not to descend into complete chaos.) Just in time for you to figure out what you want to watch for Halloween!

All this and more, as Jen tells us about a recent unpleasant incident in a movie theater, a documentary on the murder of Kitty Genovese, and completely spoils the ending of “The Changeling!”

We also talk about movies we’ve seen recently, including Blair Witch. If you just want to skip directly ahead to the Top Fifty goodness, you will find it at the 27-minutes-and-15-seconds mark.

Hope you enjoy this one!

DRtL Episode 26: Brains! I Mean, Zombies!

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Jul 13 2015

Welcome back to Don’t Read the Latin, the podcast that brings you horror movie news, reviews, and opinions every two weeks! Or three weeks. Or thereabouts. (I’d swear we used to be better at this.)

Anyway, join us as we come lurching back from the grave to discuss zombies! Even though neither Michael nor Jen consider ourselves zombie fans, per se, it turns out there are a ton of zombie films we really like. A whole horde of them, you might say. Although it turns out we have our disagreements as to just what, exactly, constitutes a zombie film ….

Look At Our Shorts!

Curious about the zombie kangaroo short film Michael mentions? Well, of course you are, right? Here it is — WATERBORNE:

Also, just to round things out, here’s another short film that we didn’t remember to mention during the podcast, but a couple of listeners had recommended it to us and it’s pretty damn awesome — THRESHER.

Spread the Word!

A zombie outbreak spreads pretty quickly. But word-of-mouth about a podcast doesn’t go quite so far and wide. If you love Don’t Read the Latin — and we sure hope you do — won’t you take a minute to help other horror fans find us by clicking one of the social sharing buttons below, or leave us a review on iTunes? It means the world to us. Thanks!

Episode Two: What Is Horror, Anyway?

“Does everything fail to be a horror movie? Oh my God, nothing’s actually horror!”

“Why do we even have this podcast — ? All right, folks, that’s it, there’s not going to be an episode three ….”

_______

Welcome back to our second episode, where we decide to tackle a highly subjective and ultimately completely unanswerable question! What is horror? Because we don’t shy away from the hard topics! (We’re not smart enough to yet.)

Join us as we talk about:

  • Watching color films in black and white
  • The War of the Worlds TV series
  • Bleak endings, and when they’re earned
  • Rob Zombie’s learning curve as a director
  • … And something about taking off a dirty dress — ?
  • Movies on the border between thrillers and horror, and Montoure takes a stab at defining the distinction between the two
  • Montoure tries to remember what movie a terrifying scene he remembers from his childhood could possibly be from
  • Jennifer has never read the Internet creepypasta short story “Candle Cove”
  • When the suck fairy comes to visit movies you used to love
  • movies that take a gleeful fun-house approach to their mayhem
  • Horror comedies
  • Horror movie theme ringtones
  • Movies based on real-life horrors
  • Why people don’t help when faced with real-life horrors
  • What movies we’re looking forward to
