We attached some bolts to our necks and licked a 9-volt battery, and here comes DRtL back to life!

Your hosts Jennifer Lovely and Rhias Hall return to talk about what they’ve seen since the last time, and a little about traditional Halloween showings.

Please forgive the audio quality, I’m still figuring out the acoustics in our brand new house!

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

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Apr 16 2018

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!

DRtL Episode 42: The Book Was Better!

“I’ve never seen the 50’s Vincent Price version . . . or, now that I stop to think about it, I don’t think I’ve seen the 60’s version, either . . . and I’m not sure I saw I Am Legend . . . . “

“Oh, my God — move on!”

Welcome to our only slightly late episode! This time, we’re exploring that strange territory where the silver screen and your local bookstore collide. That’s right, this episode is all about horror movies based on books! Bad movies based on good novels, good movies based on bad novels, and everything in between. Did we miss any of your favorites? Let us know!

Worthy of Note: Hopefully you will notice a big improvement in the sound quality over previous episodes. We’re trying a totally new audio set-up, and we think it sounds a lot better. Let us know what you think of that, too. We’re still experimenting and learning, and after two years of doing this, we’re finally making a little progress! Eventually, we catch on.

Speaking of which, also Worthy of Note — we’ve missed it by just a few days, but May 9th was the second anniversary of our very first episode! I know, we can’t believe it, either! For those who have been with us from the beginning, thank you so much for listening and for your comments and support, and for telling your friends about us. For those of you just joining — welcome! Grab some popcorn and settle in, because we’re not going to stop watching horror movies any time soon. See you in two weeks!

DRtL Episode 31: The Kids Are Alright

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Oct 12 2015

Horror movies with kid heroes. It’s a natural. How better to make an audience scared for your protagonist than to make him (or her) a young, vulnerable, innocent child? Throw in the “your parents will never believe you” trope, and you’re set for some real scares. This episode, we salute the best child protagonists the horror genre has to offer.

Join Michael and Jennifer as they dissect the casting and plot direction of Hannibal’s third season, play with an Angel puppet, talk about the Paul Stanley / Dee Snyder feud, and reveal the secret of how to get Jennifer’s daughter to watch a movie that might be slightly scary. Listen in amazement as Michael fucks up immediately! (We talked about People Under the Stairs during the Wes Craven episode, not the Stephen King episode. Obviously.)

We apologize once more, I’m afraid, for the sound quality of this episode. We forgot to set up the powered USB port for the microphone, and therefore that “robots gargling underwater” background echo is back. Yay. Also you can hear traffic outside and Jennifer’s cat meowing, although hopefully that last part is endearing. Anyway. We’ll try to set things up a little better next time.

Here’s a fan-made music video for the Scissor Sisters song Return to Oz that Michael mentioned:
