We’re releasing this episode while snow is on the ground in late March, but we talk about how nice it is in February. So…we’ve sat on this one for a while.
Ashlee and David talk about being respectful and pronouncing M. Night Shyamalan’s name properly, the movie’s connection to Shyamalan’s other work, and how David relates to the mental health issues presented in Split. This episode gets a little personal, but that’s the point of a podcast hosted by a married couple, right?
Ashlee and I give our unqualified opinion on race relations for our return from hiatus. We watched Get Out (and with the money it made opening weekend, you probably did too!). This is one of the most important movies Blumhouse has made, so it’s a good thing it’s also one of the best movies they’ve ever made.
After The Purge became real life, Ashlee and I took a break with the family film Tooth Fairy, but that didn’t make us feel any better! Now we’re diving back into the scary movies in Blumhouse’s catalog with Viral.
A highly political episode for a politically charged movie. Ashlee and I are still stunned from the results of the election. The Purge will likely never come to pass in the real world, but it’s still scary. Please don’t yell at us on Twitter — this show is about our thoughts and feelings, and we don’t really know anything.
We watched Curve! David makes bad jokes and is obsessed with Julianne Hough’s dancing in a movie without any dancing. Ashlee makes a shocking announcement. (She doesn’t use Dysh anymore).
Ashlee and I talk about Hush, by Kate Siegel and Mike Flanagan. It’s one of the best movies we’ve watched for this podcast — tense and terrifying.
We watched The Veil, and we got real confused when ghosts showed up.
We discuss the Swamp Witch Trinity: Lily Rabe, Thomas Jane, and Bray Wyatt.
The Immortal Jessica Alba is in this movie. Forever 27. Always 27.
We just watched a Let’s Play of the Resident Evil 7 demo, and it reminded me of The Veil. Found footage blending two timelines together to piece together the story of a rotting house. Interesting parallel.
Season 2 of A Blumhouse Divided is here!
We didn’t love The Darkness, but it was fun to talk about and get back into the habit of podcasting
