After Lunch | Doctor Sleep

Christmas is a time for ghost stories. And though it may not be Christmas season for everyone yet, it's never too early for a haunted tale. Rob and I kick off what we hope is a new After Lunch tradition of November ghost stories by talking about Doctor Sleep, in which one of our favorite film directors adapts a book by one of our favorite authors.

After Lunch | Literary Villains Sour 16

Rob and I welcome back Chris Bailey (aka Charlton Hero) to the show to match up the greatest literary villains of all time in an ultimate showdown to determine the absolute best. Also featuring picks from Evan Hanson, who sadly couldn't join us for the recording.

After Lunch | Disneyland

I debrief Rob about his recent trip to Disneyland in (extremely) sunny California. Rob talks about what he liked and what he didn't, I add some thoughts from my own trip there a few years ago, and we both compare it with Florida's Walt Disney World, which we're much more familiar with.

After Lunch | The Avengers of Horror

Happy Halloween! To celebrate, Rob and I welcome Bloody Popcorn's Joanna back to the show along with everyone's old buddy, old pal Jeeg to create the ultimate team-up of horror characters. We each nominate two members of the team as well as a bunch of honorable mentions to flesh out the cast and come up with a story worthy of them all. And possibly even tie in with the Avengers of Science Fiction, you never know.

Hellbent for Letterbox | The Valley of Gwangi (1969)

Pax and I stretch the definitions of both Western and Horror in this second Halloween pick, The Valley of Gwangi starring James Franciscus, Gila Golan, and Richard Carlson. And with visual effects by Ray Harryhausen.

But our Westernin' picks this month are full on horror-related as Pax reads Tim Seeley, Aaron Campbell, and Jim Terry's vampire comic West of Sundown, and I watch Sam Shepard's Western ghost story Silent Tongue and the super cheesy Teenage Monster.

After Lunch | After Dinner Lounge – Don't Let Your Kids Go to Old Man Graham's House

Rob, Evan, Pax, and I gather in the lounge to talk about what we've been watching and thinking about, including mummy movies, zombie movies, what monsters we'd want to fight and what curses we'd prefer to have, and the scariest topic of all: cash.

Rob, Evan, Pax, and I gather in the lounge to talk about what we've been listening to and reading, including Elvis, harpsichord music, Sherlock Holmes vs Dracula, and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

Hellbent for Letterbox | The Pale Door (2020)

Pax and I celebrate the Spooky Season with Aaron B. Koontz'  witchy Western, The Pale Door.

I also watched another low-budget Western horror, Blackwood, and both of us talk about the Predator prequel, Prey. And Pax shares his thoughts on Epix' new Billy the Kid series.

After Lunch | Midnight Mass

Rob, Evan, and I confront vampires and theology in writer-director Mike Flanagan's 2021 mini-series, Midnight Mass. We talk about how the show handles vampire lore, its Stephen King influences, and the characters it creates, but mostly how it discusses big themes like faith, knowledge, addiction, sacrifice, and forgiveness.
