Every podcast has its dark secrets… and this week, that means Chaos and Carnage are getting into the metaphorical head of the internationally acclaimed South Korean horror movie A Tale of Two Sisters! Join our hosts as they attempt some talk therapy over what the heck was going on in this beautiful, thoughtful, but very confusing film. Symbology, Korean folklore, Disassociative Identity Disorder (DID), and more trivia than you can tie up in a big sack and beat with a stick all await you, dear listener, in this our very seventeenth episode!
Chaos and Carnage lead an expedition into the horrifyingly mundane, aka suburbia, where the white upper middle class we’re all supposed to aspire to be has its seemingly serene surface pierced by the spirit world, who like to f**k s**t up! Richard Bates Jr. has fun poking at the hypocrisy of these communities and gives us a pair of unconventional heroes to unravel the mystery of exactly what was buried in Raymond’s parents’ back yard… and what it wants.
Chaos and Carnage are under house arrest this week as they talk the New Zealand flick, Housebound! With a cast of we don’t know them but they’re probably famous in New Zealand, Housebound has a lot more twists and turns than you’d expect from a whole movie that takes place almost entirely in one old house. It’s a horror/comedy that delivers on both fronts and the walls have eyes!
Chaos and Carnage are fully on the side of youth and anarchy in this week’s review of The Cabin in the Woods! Marty was a plant! Topics this week include the price of custom-built bongs and who probably ended up with it, all the amazing fandom crossovers you never knew were essential to your fanfic well being, which hosts and guests best fit the sacrificial archetypes, and of course, monsters. Lots. And lots. Of monsters. A glorious cavalcade of mayhem awaits!
Our dyspeptic duo talk the jump scare extraordinaire, Last Shift. Officer Loren is a rookie cop about to start her very first shift on the force – in an abandoned, haunted police station. But it’s the anniversary of her father’s murder and death of the demon-worshipping cult leader who killed him, and the surviving cultists – or maybe their demonic masters – or maybe officer Loren’s own demons – have decided to make her first shift her last.
