Episodes about Hush :
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!

Who ya gonna call?! Well — you can’t call us, exactly, because this is all pre-recorded. (But you can always post comments at our website, and review us on iTunes!)
That’s right, ghosts and ghoulies — Don’t Read the Latin is back with a special two-part episode! For the first time in the entire history of ever, we’re devoting an entire episode to a single franchise! We were so excited by the new Ghostbusters movie, we decided it was time to sit down with some of our favorite guests and talk about Ghostbusters in all media past and present.
Join your hosts Michael Montoure and Jennifer Lovely and our guests Jillian Venters, Jeff Harris, and Handsome Boyfriend Jim for a look at the original films and the animated series! (But first, a discussion of the horror movies we’ve seen lately! If you just want to skip ahead to the Ghostbusters content, it starts at the 24 minute, 27 second mark.)
Then join us in two weeks for Part Two as we discuss the videogame and the 2016 reboot — and the Internet controversy it’s spawned!
- Here’s the podcast that Jennifer mentions — My Favorite Murder
- This is the article Montoure mentions about the place where he went to summer camp — Spend The Night At Washington’s Most Haunted Campground For A Truly Terrifying Experience
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.

No, you’re not seeing double — this really is another episode of Don’t Read the Latin, after just two weeks! On time, in other words! Believe me, no one’s more surprised by that than we are. Won’t you both sit down? Wait, weren’t there two of you just a moment ago? We could have sworn ….
Oh, well. This time out, Michael Montoure and Jennifer Lovely, your Twosome of Terror, have doubled down on their research to bring you Doubles and Doppelgängers, a look into the twins, clones, shapeshifters, and other creepy identical duplicates that have graced the silver screen over the years.

First up, here is the short horror film that Jennifer mentions, Doppelganger:
…. Which is by the same director as one of our favorite horror comedy shorts, Meat:
