2 Comments | This entry was posted on Apr 05 2017

¡Hola! ¿Cómo te va todo? Welcome to the latest episode of Don’t Read the Latin, where we talk about horror movies in Spanish! (And a handful of movies that are in English, but were made in Spain.) Get ready to turn on your subtitles and explore some of the best horror that the Spanish language has to offer.

Also, Jen tells us about some of the additional channels available on Amazon Prime Video, including Shudder and the British television channel Acorn TV, and about her days back when she worked in a video store! All this, the return of Jen’s Documentary Corner, and much, much more.

As always, let us know what you think in the comments, and please take a minute to rate and review us on iTunes to let your fellow horror fans know we’re worth checking out. Thanks!

DRtL Episode 33: Horror Romances!

Wooo-hooo, look at us! We swore we would have a new episode ready in two weeks and by God we actually did it.

Inspired by our recent viewing of Crimson Peak, this time we’re taking a look at Horror Romances! Even though the course of true love never quite runs smooth in a horror movie — it’s hard to give someone your heart when they really do want your heart, and they’re willing to use their sharpest knives to get it — we’re cuddling up as close to this topic as we can get. Do join us, won’t you, dear?

DRtL Episode 28: Comfort Movies!

2 Comments | This entry was posted on Aug 10 2015

You know what we’re talking about — you’re home for a sick day, or maybe you’ve just straight-up run out of fucks. In either case, it’s time to crash on the couch with a pint of ice cream. Or maybe not — maybe it’s just time to try to get something done around the house that you’ve been putting off, like tackling that mountain of laundry, and you just want a movie to put on that won’t demand your full attention.

However it goes, you reach for a comfort movie — something you’ve already seen a zillion times, but just don’t get tired of. The cinematic equivalent of comfort food. A big ol’ audio-visual bowl of macaroni and cheese. Maybe with the emphasis on “cheese.” (As such, this episode sometimes strays way, way far out of strict horror movie territory. We promise you’ll be entertained anyway.)

We are joined this time by the always-charming Jillian Venters, the Lady of the Manners herself, from Gothic Charm School!

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!
