0 Comments | This entry was posted on Aug 08 2017

Hello Don’t Read the Latin fans!

Thank you for joining us for our latest episode ROCK AND ROLL HORROR! Where I promise not to call Stephen King an asshole but we will share at length all our favorite horror movies with a side of metal! This episode contains these guest stars: Jillian Venters of Gothic Charm School, Jeff Harris of Fanboy News Network, Handsome Boyfriend Jim of Fire When Ready, and last but absolutely not least, Rhias Hall of  The Villain Edit.

And like Lemmy said, “It’s fast and it’s aggressive and it’s rebellious and their parents hate it, which has always been the mark of good rock and roll. If your parents don’t like it, it’s good.”

DRtL Episode 46: Horror Double Features!

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Jul 18 2016

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.

Spoiler Warnings
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.

Technical Notes:
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.

Other Podcasts
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.

Episode Eleven: Horror Comedies

1 Comment | This entry was posted on Oct 17 2014

Welcome to another Halloween season episode of your favorite horror movie podcast! (At least, we assume we’re your favorite horror movie podcast. If we’re not, please don’t tell us.)

In this episode, Jennifer rants about Kevin Smith, whose recent film, “Tusk,” seems to be one inside joke aimed at the fans of podcast. (We here at Don’t Read the Latin promise that if we ever make a movie of our own, we’re not going to just pander to our existing fanbase — we intend to pander to everyone.)

We also talk about economy of storytelling, Harlan Ellison, Jen’s Big Black Gothic Yard Sale, and Michael’s upcoming Halloween reading!
