Since we made so many of you angry with our rating of the "Suspiria" remake, we thought we'd give witches-who-run-an-educational-institution another go with the 2006 film "The Woods." Special topics for your consideration include: the garbage life of being a teen, a new name for Allen, fleshing out the plans for Boystreet, #saviniwatch2k19 and more witches! More school! More witch school!

If you missed our previous witch school episodes, you can check out the original "Suspiria" (Episode 23) or the remake (Episode 232). Interested in more Lucky McKee? We also covered "All Cheerleaders Die" (Episode 71).

This week, everyone else has been talking about Chernobyl so why shouldn't we? Except instead of diving into a well-crafted, critically acclaimed HBO miniseries, we decided to discuss the 2012 dark tourism horror film "Chernobyl Diaries." Special topics for your consideration include: a new boy band that's just about to blow up called BOYSTREET, the first and ultimately last installment of our new segment "the Yakov Smirnoff minute," a film loosely based around Scooby Doo, a shocking plot revelation and autocorrect: it really does know you best. 

Do you like...I don't know, travel & tourism horror movies? We can help you out! Check out Episode 15- "Blair Witch Project," Episode 60- "An American Werewolf in London," Episode 175- "House of 1000 Corpses" or Episode 186- "Tourist Trap."

In this week's episode, we go all in on the 2018 remake of "Suspiria." We probably ought to warn you right here at the top, we reaaaally did not like it. Really. Special topics for your consideration include: too many plots (not enough resolution), auditioning to be a Cenobite, whether Radiohead is just Tool for non-Tool fans, a surprising amount of 'Jersey Shore' knowledge and "Peter Pan" explained to varying degrees of accuracy.

Did you miss our episode on the original "Suspiria"?  It's Episode 23. How about our episodes on remakes? You could do worse than Episode 50- "The Blob," Episode 85- "House on Haunted Hill," or one of our personal favorite episodes, Episode 108- "The Wicker Man."

With the upcoming release of the new "Child's Play" film (boo?) and the fact that we've already discussed the sequel, "Child's Play 2" (yay!!), we decided it was high time we talked about the original-- 1988's "Child's Play." Special topics for your consideration include: Chris Sarandon's sweater game and his perpetual hunkiness, surprisingly bleak films featuring children, first time viewings of a genre classic, Andy Barclay's criminal cuteness and a listener question that downright stumps us.

Want more "Child's Play"? Of course you do! Listen to Episode 28 for the sequel. Want more Chris Sarandon? OF COURSE YOU FUCKING DO. Catch him in Episode 22- "Fright Night" and Episode 146- "The Sentinel" (also recommended last week for the Jeff Goldblum connection!)

This week we're talking about some of the favorite actors of a certain co-host of Werewolf Ambulance: Jeff Goldblum and Donald Sutherland in the 1979 sci-fi/horror film remake "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." Special topics for your consideration include a money-making enterprise to capitalize on our punk rock fame, the new mascot of Werewolf Ambulance (spoilers: it's Art Hindle), Leonard Nimoy's accessory choices, the wisdom to never trust an old guy with weed and Santa: the ultimate snitch.

If you can't get enough Goldblum (and who could?), check out Episode 103- "The Fly" and Episode 146- "The Sentinel." Is Donald Sutherland more your jam? Then you may like Episode 47- "Don't Look Now."

In this week's episode, we are going deep into the sequels of a different franchise with the third (fourth?) installment of the "Evil Dead" films, "Army of Darkness." Special topics for your consideration include: how bad fans can make a film franchise go bad, how bad movie etiquette can make a friendship go bad, some very topical "Game of Thrones" talk (no spoilers obvs, we don't watch that show), medicinal film enhancement and hunky hunky Bruce Campbell.

Like horror comedies? We've covered a bunch, but you could start some of our favorites: Episode 126- "Cabin in the Woods," Episode 140- "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" or Episode 160- "Shaun of the Dead."

This week we're discussing the final feature film directed by one of the masters, Wes Craven. Unfortunately, it has a numerical digit in the middle of a word so you that's a pretty good indication of how the film is going to go. We give you: "Scre4m" (or SCR-FOUR-M or Scream 4, it's fine). Special topics for your consideration include: summertime cookies, romance lost and found in the "Scream" franchise, more meta than the meta, that cool hip band the teens like (U2), blazers, Wu-Tang, Judy Greer and "Stab 7." 

It's as good a time as any to check out our other Wes Craven films- Episode 4- "A Nightmare on Elm Street," Episode 44- "Scream" and Episode 138- "The People Under the Stairs."

AKA Sanguella, AKA The Island of the Living Dead, AKA Zombie Flesh Eaters, AKA Zombie, AKA Zombie The Dead Walk Among Us, AKA Gli Ultimi Zombi, AKA Woodoo, AKA L'Enfer de Zombies, AKA Zombie 2: The Dead Are Among Us and AKA Nightmare Island, this week we're talking about-- you guessed it-- a bananas Italian film. It's the 1979 Lucio Fulci vehicle "Zombi 2" and some special topics for your consideration include: How do boats work? But wait, how do radios work?, exceptionally terrible dubbing, epic eye trauma and a surprising connection to "Purple Rain."

Like Italian horror? Check out the best of our weird Italian films: Episode 41- "The Last Shark (L'ultimo Squalo)," Episode 84- "Demons," Episode 185- "Deep Red" or Episode 215- "Let Sleeping Corpses Lie."

In this week's episode, we get ourselves to the movie theater and see the new Jordan Peele film "Us." Have you guys heard about this movie? We heard a couple people talking about it. Anyway, we're going to spoil it, so see it before you listen if you plan to see it at all. Special topics for your consideration include: a lot of theories about this film (including one very close to our podcast!), the state of modern day horror, chasing the scare dragon, memes, stans and some *light* blasphemy. 

Did you miss our episode on "Get Out"? If so, it's Episode 124.

After last week's harrowing journey into "Hereditary," we decided to lighten it up a little this week with the 1988 horror-adjacent comedy "Beetlejuice." One note: we had mentioned making this a kid-friendly (no swearing episode) but...we did not. Sorry, it's explicit. Special topics for your consideration include: Pittsburgh (and national) treasure Michael Keaton, utilizing this film's therapeutic qualities, questionable Halloween costume ideas, "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," consequences for being a grosso and a shocking discovery about the screenwriter of this movie. 

Yinz into Tim Burton? Somehow we've only managed to do one other film of his: Episode 106- "Sleepy Hollow." Into Geena Davis?? Check out Episode 103- "The Fly."
