DRtL Episode 55: Back From The Dead!

4 Comments | This entry was posted on Mar 13 2017

Hello, horror fiends! Did you have a good New Year’s? And, uhhh, a good Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Chinese New Year, Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, and Mardi Gras — ? So, yeah, it’s been a little while since our last episode, is what we’re saying, here. Between Michael being out of town a lot, and Jen losing her job, her house, and then her Grandmother in rapid succession, there’s been a hell of a lot of so-called “real life” cutting into our podcasting time.

But now we’re Back From The Dead, and what better way to celebrate that than with an episode about horror movies where people return from the grave? We’re not talking ghosts, or vampires, or zombies — we’vddde done episodes on all of those already. We’re talking all the other revenants of every type and description.

Along the way, we talk about Letterboxd, a site for keeping track of the movies you watch; the late, lamented iMDB message boards; the critical role of politics in the horror genre; and the online horror movie offerings of services like Shudder and Fandor. All that and more is waiting for you in the latest episode, so stuff it into your eager brainmeats, let us know what you think in the comments, and as always, be sure to rate and review us on iTunes to let your fellow horror fans know we’re worth checking out. It’s great to be back — thanks for listening, and we will be back in two weeks.

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!

DRtL Episode 20: Guilty Pleasures!

First, a word of warning. At one point during this episode, we propose a drinking game — that you drink every time we say something to the effect of, “This is not a good movie.” Do not do this. You will die.

That said — join Michael and Jennifer as we drag our secret stash of schlock out from the back of our video collections into the light. First we define just exactly what it is we mean when we call something a “guilty pleasure,” and then we’re off and running! Expect lots of giggling in this episode.

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!
