In 1978 there was no such thing as the "slasher" genre. Psycho and Black Christmas were oddities in the thriller genre. Until one very tall man stole a tan station wagon and drove it Haddonfield to steal a featureless white mask from the general store, walk slowly with a butcher knife, and steal headstones. And thus was cinema changed forever.

Fear Level: Spooky
Trigger Warnings: body horror, anti-Roma racism, jump scares, animal death

A tour of exoticism, anti-Roma racism, early 2000's real estate / banking, and some real big Sam Raimi vibes. We try to puzzle out where exactly the Raimis are falling all of this? This is one movie where the tone and the message clash so hard, we don't actually know how the movie feels about anything.

  • Director: Sam Raimi
  • Writers: Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi
  • Stars: Alison Lohman, Justin Long. Lorna Raver, David Paymer, Adriana Barazza, Reggie Lee, Dileep Rao

Topics of Discussion:

  • The G word
  • How do we feel about the grossness of old people?
  • Banging doors
  • The grossest fight scene
  • Leave that kitten alone!
  • Poor Milos
  • Bad CPR
  • The Sam Raimi of it all

  • Evil Dead 2
  • Army of Darkness
  • Ash Vs Evil Dead
  • It Follows

Gosh, I love it when you look at the show notes! I makes me feel like I'm really doing something. You're so important to me!

If you haven't had a chance to check out last week's episode about "The VVitch" with Sweeney Boo we're so excited for you to do so. Sweeney's a great artist and a bit of a witch expert in her own right.
This week, we're warming up to talk about the other Raimi brother, Sam, as we prepare to watch "Drag Me To Hell". I think that's Sam Raimi's most well known horror movie...right?

Welcome to our Monday digression! Good to see you. We're glad you're here!

Hope you got to check out our episode about Drag Me to Hell last week with the illustrious Mr. Matt Wilson. We'd really love to hear what you all thought about that movie. It was a relatively contentious one for us.

Speaking of movies that evoke feelings in people, this Friday we're bringing you our episode on Promising Young Woman with our buddy Liana Kangas. We loved this movie and had a lot to say.
